Monday, March 31st, 2014

ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (BLADENONLINE.COM) — A political action committee was formed last week in support of the passage of Bladen County's beer and wine referendum.

Bladen County Citizens for the County Wide Sale of Beer and Wine says equal opportunity and economic development are among the reasons for creating the PAC.

"We don't think it's fair for somebody to have to drive from north of Tar Heel, past three different stores, all the way to Elizabethtown to buy a six-pack of beer," said Robin Summerlin, who announced the group's formation to about 100 people at Saturday's eighth annual Politician Appreciation Day at the Woodmen of the World building in Bladenboro.

Monday, March 31st, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after they say a man was stabbed several times by a group of men in the Ramada Inn parking lot over the weekend.

They say just before 2:30 a.m. Saturday, officers were called to the hotel at 5001 Market Street in reference to the stabbing. That’s where police say they found a man lying face-down in the roadway outside of the hotel.

Officers say when they first got to the scene, they saw witnesses trying to help the man by applying pressure to his back and wounds. Police say the man had been stabbed five times when he was walking in the parking lot.

They say after the man was stabbed, the group of suspects jumped into a 2002 Nissan Altima and took off. Police say the group drove off on Market Street going west. The victim was taken to the hospital and underwent treatment there.

There’s no word yet on whether the suspects got away with anything.
