NC appeals court sides with killer’s release claim

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013


Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A North Carolina appeals court ruling could lead to the release of a man convicted of two deaths.

The state Court of Appeals ruled 3-0 Tuesday that the case of Bobby E. Bowden of Fayetteville is different from another case which saw the state Supreme Court decide in 2010 that a life sentence means life.

The appeals court sided with a lower judge who last year ordered that Bowden be released because he served his time under old sentencing guidelines.

A 1970s state law said a life sentence meant 80 years. The appeals court agreed with Bowden’s attorneys that he earned credits shaving off more time for the 1975 slayings.

A spokeswoman for Attorney General Roy Cooper would not say whether the ruling would be appealed.

Fit Minute – CrossFit

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — If you want to push your body to the max, you might want to try CrossFit. The weight-training and cardio combo can get you fit very fast if you’re up to the challenge.

CrossFit is not for the faint of heart, body or mind.

“You don’t want to let yourself down. You don’t want to let other people down by stopping so it just forces you to go beyond your limits,” said Christine Dimeo, who’s been doing CrossFit for about a year.

And, there’s really no limit for Dimeo when she’s working out at Port City CrossFit in Wilmington.

“It just makes me do things that I would never do on my own,” Dimeo said.

“It’s just a totally different kind of gym experience,” said Keith Nelson, a personal trainer at Port City CrossFit.

Nelson said CrossFit combines elements of weight lifting, power lifting, gymnastics and cardio.

“We kind of put it together in a lot of different combinations and we vary it a lot,” Nelson said.

In fact, it’s different every day. Nelson said trainers come up with a new hour-long routine they post to their website. Nelson said it’s always a challenge yet it’s safe because trainers are there to make sure people are using the correct form.

And, Dimeo said it’s also very effective.

“I’ve kept a steady weight. I’m just really toned. I just feel better,” Dimeo said.

Nelson said he encourages people to do CrossFit three to five times a week to really get to know the moves and see fast results.
