    SANFORD - A group of local Chinese-Americans took their support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to new heights on Saturday. The results were visible across much of the Triangle. An ad hoc group of local Chinese-Americans who are linked via a messaging app called WeChat – developed by Chinese company Tencent – pooled their resources to hire a single-engine plane towing a banner that proclaimed: “NC Chinese Americans for Trump.” The 180-horsepower Aviat Husky A-1B’s scheduled four-hour flight path started at the Raleigh Executive Airport in Sanford and included a flyby of Carter-Finley Stadium prior to the game between...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Shoppers in Raleigh described chaos Saturday afternoon after at least one gunshot rang out in the crowded Crabtree Valley Mall. Hours after the report of the shots, police had yet to identify a shooter, find anyone with gunshot wounds or make any arrests. Elisabeth Hammond was in the food court when she heard shots nearby. "I'm a country girl, I know what gunfire sounds like," she said. "I felt it in my chest."...

    RALEIGH (WTVD) -- A Wake County man was left bruised and bloodied in the street after he was jumped in downtown Raleigh. The victim tried fighting back against the suspects, but says he was outnumbered. The attack happened last weekend as he left on bar and was walking down Davie Street near Chavis Way with two friends. He asked to remain anonymous. "I got hit so hard I saw stars. It's just like a flash, you can't think straight for a bit," the victim said. He was knocked out cold at one point. The victim says four or five people...

    Raleigh, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory says the General Assembly should reverse a portion of the recently passed House Bill 2 but leave in place provisions that deal with locker room and restroom usage. Specifically, the governor called on lawmakers to reverse a part of the law, known as the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, which prevents North Carolina workers who believe they've been wrongfully fired due to sex, age, race or gender from suing in state court. "I will immediately seek legislation in the upcoming short session to reinstate the right to sue for discrimination in North Carolina...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Santa Claus says it's OK to skip church this Christmas, according to a series of billboards paid for by American Atheists. The billboards have been set up in Colorado Springs and in Raleigh, North Carolina. In Colorado Springs, there's one located near Fountain at Exit 128 and another near a Stratmoor Hills neighborhood. "We want people to know that going to church has absolutely nothing to do with being a good person, " said David Silverman, president of American Atheists. "The things that are most important during the holiday season—spending time with loved ones, charity, and...

    Around the world, Christians are targeted for persecution and martyrdom, something that is developing even in the United States. But even as church leaders increasingly are on guard against threats of murderous violence, experts warn they may be ignoring a far more common threat – sexual assault against congregants. “Sexual assaults taking place on church property is an epidemic in our nation,” Carl Gallups told WND. “The reasons for it are numerous (and sometimes complex), but the main problem is that most churches have an abysmal lack of adequate security measures. While many churches are concerned about the growing trend...

    RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA — Scientists using underwater vehicles and sonar have found a shipwreck off the North Carolina coast that may date back to the American Revolution, Duke University said Friday. The expedition led by Duke marine scientist Cindy Van Dover found the previously unknown wreck in mile-deep waters on July 12 using an underwater robot and a manned submarine. They've found artifacts including an iron chain, glass bottles, an unglazed pottery jug and navigational instruments including a metal compass. Archaeologists who examined photos of the artifacts say the wreck appears to date back as far as the late 18th...

    At the top of the list is Raleigh, North Carolina. The city’s residents earn a median base salary of $50,000, higher than many of the cities on this list, while median home values remain a relatively modest $198,400. Chamberlain notes that the factors that put Raleigh at the top of the list can be a model for other metros. The city has long been attractive to major companies like IBM and Cisco. But now, Raleigh is gaining popularity among technology companies as well, who value the pipeline of talent provided by the city’s location among several major universities in the...

    Raleigh, N.C. — A highway contractor pleaded guilty Thursday in a scheme to supply defective components to bridges in North Carolina, authorities said. Joel De La Torre, 33, of Chicago, pleaded guilty to federal charges of making false statements concerning highway projects and aggravated identity theft. He will be sentenced in July, when he faces up to seven years in prison and $500,000 in fines. Defects were found in October 2011 in elastomeric bridge bearings – slabs of rubber reinforced with multiple layers of steel and placed underneath bridges to absorb shock – that had been shipped to 25 highway...

    RALEIGH — When the Love My Life rally began five years ago, 300 teens and their parents attended, a group small enough for the Sacred Heart Cathedral in downtown Raleigh to handle. On Saturday, the anti-abortion event, sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh, drew roughly five times that number as middle and high school students packed into a huge heated tent on the Halifax Mall in the heart of the state government complex. Those numbers augmented the annual anti-abortion march later that afternoon that ran the length of a city block. The rally featured contemporary Christian music with a...
