Over the summer, New Hanover County cut WAVE Transit’s funding significantly from the previous year, resulting in the likely closures of routes serving northern New Hanover County and Pleasure Island. However, WAVE was granted slightly more state funding this year for its Rural Operating Assistance Program. But since WAVE won’t be able to use that money to help salvage the routes in question, it will likely extend their current closure date—September thirtieth—until after WAVE’s board meets with the New Hanover County Commission to make final decisions in October.

Following the state Senate’s Wednesday passage of “Safe Harbor” legislation stipulating that minors involved in sex work be treated as victims rather than criminals, the Star-News hosted a panel on human trafficking. Federal prosecutors and other experts engaged 120 audience members at Cape Fear Community College on Thursday. Panelists issued a call to action to better detect and battle the problem, which they say is pervasive in the coastal region.
