THIS JUST IN: Plane from Wilmington crashes in SC

Monday, May 26th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)- A small plane from Wilmington has crashed about 10 miles from the Chester Catawba Airport in South Carolina.

According to the FAA, the plane left Wilmington on Friday and was flying to Clayton, Georgia. A concerned party contacted the FAA yesterday to report the plane was missing.

Gary Broughton, with Wilmington International Airport, says they were also contacted last night and asked if the AA1 plane was still on the runway. The plane was based on the south ramp at AeroService at ILM. It’s registered to the Warriors to Wings plane club out of Sneads Ferry. Broughton says the pilot did not file a flight plan, so they do not know when the pilot actually left the airport.

Chester county emergency management confirms that two people were on board and died. We’ll bring you more updates as they become available.

Author from Wilmington wants you to live a ‘Life Enormous’

Monday, May 26th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — ‘Life Enormous’ is a slogan and way of life for Delores Artemus.

She’s a Wilmington native who lives and works in Columbia, South Carolina, now. The photographer and travel writer wrote a book last June called ‘Life’s Statements.’ In it, there are quotes and tips on how to live your own ‘Life Enormous’ by setting goals.

That can mean anything for anybody. For Artemus, it means traveling to all 50 states. She said no matter what your goal is, she wants to help you achieve it by reading her book.

“People need to know how to get to their ‘Life Enormous.’ So, within those covers are statements to help you get to your ‘Life Enormous.’ Everyone will not get the same thing from ‘Life’s Statements.’ But, as I stated, it is designed to make you think and to think about your life and where you want to go,” Artemus said.

You can buy her book online at Amazon.com, Authorhouse.com and Barnesandnoble.com.

Temple of Israel breaks ground for new Wilmington community building

Monday, May 26th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Temple of Israel broke ground on the new Rita and Jonathan Reibman Center for Kehillah at 922 Market Street this morning.

The new building will provide a place for Jewish education for the community, along with administrative offices for the congregation. Temple members and staff say a lot of time and effort went into planning, and they are excited to see the hard work pay off.

The Temple’s Rabbi, Paul D. Sidlofsky, says he cannot wait to see it all finally come to fruition. “Well this was many years in the making, many years of visioning and thinking about it,” Rabbi Sidlofsky says. “But in the last year or so there’s been a capital campaign where we’ve raised a considerable amount of funds from within the congregation to fund this land and this building.”

The congregation hopes the project will be completed in about six months. Members say they are looking forward to using the facility to connect with one another in their faith. The Temple of Israel is the oldest Jewish Temple in the state.
