FIRST ON 3: MLK Parade changing downtown route

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The 2014 MLK Parade is changing routes in January and will use Third and Fourth Streets instead of Front Street, according to organizer Hollis Briggs.

Last MLK Day, the parade moved from its longtime home on Castle Street to Front Street to get more people to come downtown. However, it blocked traffic for some of the businesses on Front Street and a few were against doing it again in January.

Briggs says the new route will look more like the Azalea Festival Parade route, starting at Red Cross and Third, moving south on Third to Princess, then from Princess up Fourth Street.

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger’s court case on a drug charge has been continued until next year.

Berger was due in court today for his charge of possession of schedule II drugs, but his attorney Buddy Allard says the case was continued until Jan. 16.

Berger was charged with the possession charge, as well as DWI, Dec. 6 after Wilmington Police say Berger was found passed out in the driver’s seat of a car in the middle of Masonboro Loop Road. Berger is scheduled for court on the DWI and another traffic infraction from the incident Feb. 20.

The drug possession charge is a felony. If convicted, Berger would lose his seat on the county commission under state law.

Berger is also slated for a Jan. 29 trial on a DWI charge from Dec. 2012.
