The wheels are turning for a new port while a local group is trying to put on the brakes. The North Carolina Ports Authority has made an agreement with an Illinois-based developer on an international terminal in Southport. But, the idea of a Brunswick County port comes with plenty of resistance. The group, No Port Southport held its first public meeting last night, and had a big turnout. After this meeting, the non-profit group gained plenty of supporters who signed petitions and volunteered time and money. Ports Authority officials are aware of the resistance, and even though they made an agreement with a potential private developer, say they're willing to listen to concerns.
