In this edition of Business Brief, WHQR’s Sara Wood talks to Susan Silver, the director of Aging in Place Downtown. She’s in the process of gathering resources and momentum for the non-profit. It aims to help Wilmington’s elderly population age in place, in their homes. To begin, Silver is focusing on downtown.

North Carolina citizens who plan to buy or adopt what some state legislators call "aggressive" dog breeds could soon have a harder time.
A measure filed in the House earlier this week would require background checks, certification, and special permits.
Sponsored by a Republican from Cabarrus County and a Democrat from Mecklenburg, the legislation targets Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Mastiffs, Chows, and Presa Canarios. The term "aggressive dog breed" also includes wolf hybrids.
