4th of July
For many, it's tradition to mark the Fourth of July with fireworks and family barbecues. Along with those activities, you can take part in several events marking the day of our country's independence. Co-chair of the New Hanover County Veterans Council Frank Roberts stopped by this week to tell us about what's happening tomorrow.
Southport certainly takes Independence Day seriously, hosting the annual North Carolina 4th of July Festival. Southport native and WWAY design guru Randy Aldridge stopped by the festival to check out what the local artists have to offer this year.
About a week after the senate passed the 2012 farm bill in a 64-35 vote, Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) stopped by the WWAY studio to explain how the bill will impact North Carolinians. She spoke with "Good Morning Carolina" anchor Ashley Jacobs this morning about that and more.
