Boy to donate birthday money to replant stolen Venus Flytraps

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington boy is donating all of his upcoming birthday money to help replant Venus Flytraps recently plundered from a park.

Jack Leo is asking his friends and family for help so he can donate as much as possible to the recently created Flytrap Fund.

Jack’s sixth birthday is Monday, and he is intent on helping the rare carnivorous plants make a comeback.

“Because they’re interesting, and ’cause I don’t want them to be extinct,” Jack said.

The North Carolina Coastal Land Trust is offering up to a $1,500 award to anyone who provides information on the theft of Venus Flytraps earlier this year from the Stanley Rehder Carnivorous Plant Garden at Alderman Park.

NC Senate delays final vote on tax overhaul

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) – The North Carolina Senate has delayed a final vote on a tax overhaul plan to discuss changes with House members and Gov. Pat McCrory.

Senate Leader Phil Berger of Eden said Tuesday a scheduled final vote was being put off for talks with McCrory and the House, which already passed its own proposal. The Senate’s plan tentatively passed last week. Berger said the proposal will be scheduled for action Wednesday.

The Senate plan cuts taxes by billions through a gradual repeal of corporate taxes and lower income tax rates. Proponents say it will boost the economy.

Critics have said it is not true tax reform because it doesn’t make major changes to the sales tax code. Others say it will severely hurt state and local public services.
