Seahawks, Camels Renew Old Rivalry

WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Just two days removed from a 23-point loss in their Colonial Athletic Association debut at VCU, the UNCW men’s basketball team finds itself smack in the middle of its longest rivalry on record when Campbell visits Trask Coliseum on Monday. The Seahawks, 2-6, had their two-game winning streak snapped in convincing fashion with the 87-64 loss to the Rams. It was an eye-opener for Buzz Peterson’s young club. “The VCU game was a disappointing game for us,” Peterson said before Sunday’s practice. “We have to put that game behind us and move on. Campbell is having a tremendous year. They have lost their last two games on the road, so I know they’ll come in here […]

Governor Perdue Rocked by Another Corruption Scandal

Governor Perdue Rocked by Another Corruption Scandal

Trying to hide the failures of the Perdue Economy? RALEIGH, NC December 19th 2011 – For the second time in as many months, Governor Perdue is apparently the focus of another ethics scandal. The Carolina Journal reports, “Since as early as January 2011, and perhaps before then, Gov. Bev Perdue’s press office has received access to confidential employment data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics hours if not days before its scheduled release, quite likely in violation of federal law. The governor’s staff used its early access to massage the monthly employment press release that reported jobs data to the public.”   http://www.carolinajournal.com/exclusives/display_exclusive.html?id=8578   North Carolina Republican Party Executive Director, Scott Laster, had this to say, “It appears that […]

Move Intended To Raise Awareness of Disappearing Amphibian Populations Raleigh, NC, Dec 15, 2011 – Governor Bev Purdue of North Carolina issued a proclamation late last week officially declaring April 28, 2012 “Save The Frogs Day” in the state of North Carolina, and calling its observance to all citizens.

Worldwide, nearly one-third of the world’s nearly 6,897 amphibian species are threatened with extinction and 200 species have completely disappeared since the […]
