24 hours ago we were supposed to have a live, sit-down interview with New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger, but just 25 minutes before airtime, Berger called to pull the plug on the interview. He also said he is considering resigning.
It probably would not surprise you to learn we've received a lot of feedback from our questioning yesterday of New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger. Some of it has been positive. Some of it has not.
A couple of big stories yesterday helped illustrate the relationship between the media and law enforcement in our area.
Brian Berger and some of his supporters are again blaming the media and police for his latest problems. In tonight's edition of The Rant, WWAY's Kevin Wuzzardo says it's time for Berger to look in the mirror.
Earlier tonight we told you about Allen Strickland and his latest run-in with the law. Just when you think this whole saga with the teen known as Frog and former State Senator RC Soles cannot get stranger, it does.
Unless you've been under a rock lately, you've probably heard a little something about the goings on of former state senator RC Soles and Allen "Frog" Strickland. Over the weekend, there was another incident that made headlines, but some of you say enough's enough.
Earlier this week we told you about a Hobbton high school student with down syndrome who can no longer be on the school's football team. The reason is that at age 19 and he's too old to play. The story has drawn a lot of people to our website, who have sounded off.
This story certainly raises a different kind of domestic violence issue. Since we first aired this story last night, many of you have taken time to give us your thoughts on our website.
Police said Hines was driving at speeds upward of 90 miles per hour during yesterday's chase. That has some of you asking questions.
