Monday - Friday the film will be shown at 7pm and another show on Wednesday at 4pm. "Step is life!" - More than just a hobby for a trio of high school seniors at the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, the step dance team represents an escape and an outlet, a way out, and a way to express themselves.

Monday, October 2nd - Wednesday, October 4th, at Thalian Hall Main Stage Theatre. Monday - Wednesday at 7pm, Wednesday at 4pm.   Eleven years after An Inconvenient Truth, and only weeks after the US pulled out of the global climate agreement, Al Gore returns with a powerful exploration of the current state of climate change and what we can do about it. 

Monday, October 9th - Wednesday, October 11th, at Thalian Hall Main Stage Theatre. Monday - Wednesday at 7pm, Wednesday at 4pm.    After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip.

The MC Erny Gallery

On Monday, September 11th, we will sit down with Ben Steelman of Wilmington's StarNews to discuss Dr. Tom V. Morris's two new books, The Viper and the Storm and Socrates in Silicon Valley. Dr. Morris has been a part of WHQR and StarNews's Prologue before as a "public philosopher" and has also been a part of WHQR's CoastLine to discuss his many books and views on ethics. 

A former Morehead Scholar at UNC-Chapel Hill and holds a Ph.D. in philosophy and religious studies from Yale, Morris taught philosophy for 15 years at Notre Dame where he ranked as one of the most popular professors on campus. He then formed the Morris Institute for Human Values and became a noted motivational and inspirational speaker to corporations and government agencies.

You know the story of Peter Pan-Wendy, Captain Hook, Tinkerbell, the crocodile, and all the rest...but you may not know how the story began. Opera House Theatre Company presents a play that will answer all your curiosities: Peter and the Starcatcher, adapted from the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson (definitely a comedy). The show won 5 Tony Awards (and a heap of other awards) after its premiere in 2011.

Tidal Creek Coop and Whole Foods Market are natural competitors...they both sell food and products to health conscious consumers. But this week, Tidal Creek is encouraging everyone-including its members-to go to Wine Down Wednesday at Whole Foods. That's because these two grocers are working together to raise money to purchase and install a Reverse Osmosis (RO) water filtration machine at Dreams of Wilmington. On Wednesday, August 30, 6pm-8pm, Wine Down Wednesday offers 5 food/wine pairing samples at Whole Foods for $5--and all the money is going to this RO project. 

Lucky for many kids in our area, the 2-hour delay to the schoolday hasn't been canceled! There is still a 60% chance of rain in Wilmington today, with cloudy skies tonight. High temperature today expected to hit 80 degrees; low tonight in the mid-60s. The Cyclone weather disturbance continues northerly, so if traveling north of Pender County, keep an eye on the forecast.

They met in Wilmington this week, to hammer out plans for the GenX river contamination and its related investigations. The 20-member commission spent almost five hours questioning local officials, and listening to public comment.
