Thursday, July 31st, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — One of two men wanted for a shooting Sunday in Creekwood is in custody.

The New Hanover County Jail website shows Hykeem Quintell Durant, 24, was arrested some time yesterday. He is due in court today.

Yesterday afternoon, police got warrants for Durant and Jakia Imani Boney, 24, for assault with a deadly weapon, going armed to the terror of the public and injury to personal property.

The victim told police Boney and Durant fired several shots at him after an argument. The shooting happened in the Creekwood Housing community around 6:30 p.m. near 702 N. 30th Street.

Brewing questions with no answers, yet

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– The Wilmington Planning Commission held a workshop Wednesday to decide how to handle small breweries in the port city.

The meeting started without commission member Bruce McGuire who called for it but who has recused himself because of a conflict of interest.

On the frontlines of this proposed change, Wilmington Home Brew business is hopping.

It is though their thriving retail sales that allows them to stay open.

As it currently stands Wilmington’s zoning laws wouldn’t allow them to operate a brewery without it.

That could all change if the Wilmington planning commission updates their zoning regulations to include microbreweries.

The commission has kept the issue brewing for months now but tonight could be the final step in the process.

Local micro brewers say this is about their future.

“In 3 to 5 years if we were to expand the brewery or something anything of growth,” Michele Savard, owner of Wilmington Homebrew, “It would hold us up so we are hoping that for everyone too that this moves through.”

As it stands so called microbrewery’s would be zoned as heavy industrial which would keep them away from heavily populated areas of town.

Something these folks feel would be bad for business.

The planning commission will vote on the new zoning laws at their next meeting. It then goes to City Council for final approval.
