Ticket purchases on the rise as Azalea Festival nears

The ticket office on Oleander Drive was extremely busy Friday as excitement is starting to build for next week's Azalea Festival. The ticket office had a special visitor; one of the clowns from the Cole Brothers Circus greeted ticket buyers this afternoon. The circus will run for four consecutive days starting next Thursday. Tickets for the circus can be purchased at the Azalea Festival office through Wednesday. Starting Thursday, the first day of the circus, tickets can be purchased at the circus on the grounds of the Wilmington International Airport. Adult tickets cost $20 while children get in for $15.

I realize that the Azalea

I realize that the Azalea Festival is big business for Wilmington and consequently a great deal of the news this week has focused on it, but do you stop reporting the other news in the meantime? A woman in Bladen county was severely beaten this week and her attacker thought he had killed her so he went home and blew his brains out. She's in NHRMC, they had to remove part of her skull. I know this isn't on the same level as flowering shrubs but isn't it news?

where at in Bladen county

where at in Bladen county and who was the person and attacker?

I heard about this too from

I heard about this too from a friend of a friend. I'm not sure if that is Bladen County or Sampson. I hear that she is in a coma though. I don't want to be the one to put her name out here on the internet but apparently this station isn't interested in the story, or they would have followed up once they read the original comment on here. It's why they get awards.

If this happened in Bladen

If this happened in Bladen county it is not news. Although I pray for this womans recovery; this stuff happens on a daily basis in that county. Bladen county does have some great residents but overall I would feel safe in saying it has the most stupid uneducated thuggish citizens per square mile of any county in the state.
