SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) — A misdemeanor criminal summons has been issued for David Stanley, Brunswick County’s Health Director.

Duke Energy Progress to replace street lights

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Duke Energy Progress says it is launching an initiative to modernize outdoor lighting across its service area.

The utility says it’s received approval from the N.C. Utilities Commission to replace more than 100,000 mercury vapor street and area lights with advanced light emitting diode, or LED, fixtures.

It will soon propose a replacement plan for Duke Energy Progress customers in South Carolina.

The project is part of the utility’s Lighting Modernization Program, which would replace mercury vapor fixtures in Duke Energy Progress’ North Carolina service area over a two-year period beginning next month.

About 25 percent of outdoor lights on the Duke Energy Progress system use mercury vapor fixtures, identifiable by their cool, bluish light. Most fixtures were installed decades ago and are nearing the end of their useful life.

Autism insurance in NC subject of pro-Tillis ad

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — An group that says it’s not required to disclose donors is spending another $2 million on television ads promoting U.S. Senate candidate Thom Tillis by highlighting his support for requiring insurance coverage for autism disorders.

Carolina Rising leader Dallas Woodhouse said Tuesday two ads are running in several TV markets featuring a family with a child with autism thanking Tillis for fighting for coverage while speaker of the House. A bill passed the House last year but got stuck in the Senate.

The group already has run two ads crediting Tillis and Gov. Pat McCrory on teacher pay and education funding. McCrory is not on this fall’s ballot.

Woodhouse confirmed the group’s advertising spending to-date at $4.7 million. The group cites its federal tax designation in keeping donors’ names secret.
