Wilmington, NC – The region's youngest filmmakers may be skimping on their homework and chores over the next few weeks. But angry parents might want to cut the kids some slack if they're rushing to get their entries ready for the Cucalorus Kids film festival.
Now in its third year, the festival combines films by and for young people with workshops and other events.
Festival director Dan Brawley says he expects to see a lot of entries for this year that actually started at last year's festival.
Raleigh, NC – A House Committee investigating Representative Thomas Wright found probable cause to continue looking into charges of unethical and unlawful conduct. Wright and his attorney skipped Wednesday's hearing in Raleigh.
The House Select Committee found there was probable cause on eight counts of unethical conduct. The counts range from obtaining loans by false pretenses to failing to disclose scores of campaign contributions.
Wilmington, NC – A House Committee hearing centered on the finances of Representative Thomas Wright begins Wednesday afternoon in Raleigh.
Wright, a democrat, was indicted early last month on six counts of fraud and obstruction of justice. The House committee was formed to look into the indictments and determine if there is evidence of illegal activity.
Wright entered a not guilty plea to the charges last week. That's when his attorney told reporters that Wright would seek re-election.
