In Case You Missed It
The Greater Wilmington area missed getting hit by the worse of Hurricane Sandy. We had rain, high winds that brought down a few trees, and some flooding, but nothing as bad as last year’s Hurricane Irene.
Cape Fear Community College’s former president Eric McKeithan has joined The Order of the Long Leaf Pine. The award, named after the official state tree, was created in 1965 to honor individuals who have provided exemplary service to the state of North Carolina and is awarded through the Governor’s office. McKeithan was nominated by CFCC trustees for his work in community college education.
The cost of the 2013 annual passes for Freeman Park have been raised to $100, a 70% hike from the popular discounted early purchase tickets that were $60 last year. The undeveloped north end of Carolina Beach is a popular camping area where people can drive their vehicles onto the beach. The town’s council voted to raise the price to help pay for the area’s beach nourishment program, which it will undergo this winter and again in three years. The town does not expect to get all of its nourishment money from state or federal funding and believe this is a necessary step for making sure they have the required funds.
The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA), a nonprofit organization that makes equestrian sports more affordable to middle and high school students, has come to our area. The Old Homestead Farm in Rocky Point is home to the new chapter and was lucky enough to secure an experienced IEA trainer, who has helped previous students earn scholarships. IEA helps lower expenses by allowing riders to share horses and compete together at events, and is a great option for low-income families. Learn more about the program here.
