The greatest feedback of the past few weeks has been the fact that so many people joined together to push us over the top in our Stealth campaign. We finished 6 hours early, on Monday the 27th, and so we able to cancel our traditional summer marathon drive. We welcome all new and renewing members who contacted us by mail or web. Here are a few of their comments. Long-time listener and supporter Penelope wrote:

"Miss Firecracker" at Cape Fear Playhouse

Jul 30, 2015

Big Dawg Productions has 2 productions staged simultaneously-The Hermit of Fort Fisher is at the Greenfield Lake Amphitheatre through August 2, while "The Miss Firecracker Contest" is on the stage of the Cape Fear Playhouse.

As listeners know, our first-ever Summer Stealth Drive was a success. It went over its goal 11 hours early on Monday July 27th, thus eliminating the usual summer 3- or 4-day marathon. Going past the goal is a great boost for the station as we begin our 2015-16 Fiscal Year. For those who want to dive a little deeper, we have some some questions and answers. But first, a couple of definitions:

On the next CoastLine, we’re taking a ride with WAVE Transit. Is the area’s bus system adequately serving the community? How is it changing, and what can we expect for the future? Joining us in studio will be Albert Eby, Executive Director of WAVE.

Counties across North Carolina could soon be required to cover the entire cost of recycling electronics.  It's just one provision in the Regulatory Reform Act of 2015 that could create an unplanned hole in the budget for New Hanover County’s Department of Environmental Management.

How often have you wondered whether to toss a soda bottle into the recycling bin with or without the cap?  Do you rinse out food containers before you recycle them?  And what do you do with all those plastic grocery bags?

On Sunday, July 26th staff, friends, and family of WHQR met up at Liberty Tavern on 7976 Market Street for great food and drinks. Everyone had such a great time that we will be planning another meetup very soon!

If you keep hearing about our meetups it's time to come check one out! Be on the look out for the next one!

On Friday, July 24th "Faces and Places" Work By Larry Hovis and Anne Van Blarcom Kurowski opened in our MC Erny Gallery. You can read more about them here.

President Obama was giving the final speech of his Africa tour, offering a critique of the young democracies on that continent, singling out the all-too-typical practice of leaders overstaying their terms in office.

"When a leader tries to change the rules in the middle of the game just to stay in office, it risks instability and strife," Obama said, aware that the president of Burundi, seated nearby, had recently defied that country's two-term limit.

"I have a hard time saying this with a straight face, but I will: You can teleport a single atom from one place to another," says Chris Monroe, a biophysicist at the University of Maryland.

His lab's setup in a university basement looks nothing like the slick transporters that rearrange atoms and send them someplace else on Star Trek. Instead, a couple million dollars' worth of lasers, mirrors and lenses lay sprawled across a 20-foot table.
