NC community college rate break for vets proposed
RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Gov. Pat McCrory says he wants to make it easier for new veterans to attend any of North Carolina's community colleges. McCrory announced Thursday he'll seek in his upcoming budget proposal a provision to give the in-state tuition rate to veterans for any of the 58 community colleges. It's considered a way to encourage them to settle in North Carolina after separation from the military and contribute their skills to the economy. The governor says more than 60,000 members of the military are expected to leave the service in North Carolina during the next five years as the war in Afghanistan ends. McCrory made the announcement at the inaugural Women Veterans Summit and Expo in Raleigh. (Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Vigil held for missing woman
Wilmington, N.C. (WWAY) - Friends and family of Shannon Rippy gathered on the steps of City Hall to raise awareness about the fact that their friend is still missing. One by one their candles lit, one by one they spoke, one by one they hope, want, pray, for their friends safe return. “What we don't know is what's breaking our hearts,” said Michele Seidman who has known Rippy for years, “We worked on a couple of the same films together, and we actually lived down the street from each other so during that time I’d run into her constantly.” Today’s news that Wilmington Police suspect foul play hits hard. “It’s put me a little bit more on edge I’ve been trying not to allow myself to get emotional,” said Seidman, “but it almost took me there.” Monica Caison with the C.U.E. center for missing persons says time is now of the essence. “You have to continue to be there,” said Caison, “I mean the hope is that there will be a resolution and you have to hold on to that hope.” That's why Thursday’s vigil is so important. “We are supporting that effort and encouraging the community to embrace this family through this journey that they’re on right now,” she said. Holding her picture high, Sideman has a message for whoever’s involved in her disappearance. “You’re not thinking about humanity, you’re not thinking about what really matters and that’s getting Shannon home alive,” she charged. A burning desire for answers that will not wane until they come.

Campaign sign vandalism makes claims against republican candidate
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Some campaign posters around town are not displaying a message you would expect. How is this affecting the candidates and their party? Recently, we've seen more and more campaign signs popping up and with that, campaign sign vandalism." "This is part of every election, the destruction of signs," said Republican Chairman Sam Ibrahim. "It's just a part of the process." He says you shouldn't believe what vandals write on the signs. Like the word 'RINO.' That's what someone spray painted onto some of Chuck Kays' signs. It means "Republican in name only.' But the doctor running for New Hanover County commission says it's just wrong. "It's really troubling to me that there is a person that feels, just because I may not agree with their position that it entitles them to do that," Kays said. "I don't take care of my patients that way, or my relationships that way and you know what, that's part of the problem with politics." Representatives from the New Hanover County GOP say this person is not doing the Republican Party any favors. The moment they find out any new information on the vandalism they're going to report it to the authorities.

Kids search for Easter eggs at Halyburton Park
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Baskets prepared, faces painted, and eggs hidden among the trees. Easter came early for a bubbling bunch of kids at Halyburton Park. The Easter egg hunt would not be complete without a golden egg filled with an extra special gift. And even though the competition for the elusive golden egg was fierce many kids said if they found it, they would share the prize with others. "Well, I told Brielle even if we both find the golden egg, or if she does and I don't, or if I do and she doesn't we can share the golden egg, what's inside,” Easter egg hunter Addia House said. A lucky little girl found the golden egg, proudly showing it off to others. Kids say Easter is all about having fun, spending time with family and of course, eating chocolates found in the eggs.
