When President Obama opened portions of the Atlantic seaboard to drilling, the Interior Department established a buffer of fifty-miles to protect fishing and tourism. But Governor Pat McCrory strongly criticizes that restriction.

Larry and Libby Oldham are both singers with the Cape Fear Chorale and had many interesting things to say about the spring performance, Requiem in C Minor by Luigi Cherubini. Larry Oldham earned his DMA in Church Music, so he had a deep knowledge about this music and the history-for instance, which great composer requested this Requiem for his funeral, and why the church banned this music. We also hear about the fall concert in this informative interview.
In 2013, the folks who wanted to begin a Jewish Film Festival in Wilmington were careful: to test the waters, they presented just one film. Last year, they presented 4...and this year, the Festival offers 9 films over two weeks: 6 feature length films + 3 short films, all at Thalian Hall.

Governor McCrory is fighting to shrink the buffer zone for seismic testing off North Carolina's coast bringing it closer to shore...and while energy advocates argue there is no evidence that it harms marine animals, concern in the scientific community is growing. Tune in Wednesday, April 22 at noon for the next CoastLine.
