Museum transforms into crime scene

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Cape Fear Museum was transformed into a crime scene Saturday.

Organizers say they created a plot where a piece of scientific equipment goes missing from the Learning Center.

Kids of all ages then put their detective skills to use to solve a mystery of ‘Who Dunnit.’ They searched for clues, in the museum, that would lead them to the criminal.

After they gathered the facts, folks presented their findings to New Hanover County District Attorney Ben David, who then made an indictment.

Parents say this was a fun way to teach their kids right from wrong.

“They always ask ‘Mom how does a bad person get caught?’ So there was a lot of clues that were given to us, to actually be able to search with them for the clues taught them a very good lesson, especially not to steal,” said Jennifer Rojo.

Once the group discovered who was the crook, New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputies hauled her away to museum jail.

More than 7,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies distributed

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

NEW HANOVER CO., NC (WWAY) — Girl Scouts kick-off cookie sales this week.

More than 7,000 boxes of cookies were picked up by troop Cookie Moms and Dads.

Gluten-free chocolate chip and cranberry citrus are new flavors to the Girl Scout’s cookie line-up.

Recruitment Director Brooke Banson says, “more than just a box determines their success. The girls use it to fund local service projects, community projects. They decide how to spend the money, so they get to use that to fund their activities and fun trips throughout the year.”

One cookie mom told WWAY her troop plans to use sale money to swim with the stingrays at Myrtle Beach.

If you forgot to order your case of thin mints, don’t worry. You can visit cookie booths at area businesses throughout March.
