WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars and Stripes’ with the Cape Fear Chordsmen this weekend, as they celebrate their 25th show of its kind at Kenan Auditorium.
Their barbershop-style performances will include an Ireland-to-New York theme, giving audiences a chance to hear and celebrate the classic sounds they resonate.
It’s the group’s 25th annual show, and music lovers will have two chances to catch an earful. The first show begins Saturday 1:30 p.m., with a later concert at 7:30 p.m., both inside the Kenan Auditorium at UNCW.
The whole group stopped by Good Morning Carolina to give viewers a little preview of what they can expect.
RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A bill opening the door to 75 mph speed limits on some highways in North Carolina has been sent back to a House committee for more work.
The House debated the measure Thursday but decided to return it to the Transportation Committee instead of taking a vote. The Senate already passed the bill, which would allow the Department of Transportation to raise the speed limit from 70 to 75 on highways and interstates if studies proved the change was safe.
The bill was criticized on the floor from members of both parties. They said it serves no real purpose and would lead to an increase in deaths.
Supporters say changes would come only after careful consideration by traffic engineers.
