    WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A Wilmington couple is facing criminal charges after a woman showed a gun at a local restaurant over a wrong order of chicken wings. Clarissa Gagum, 24, and her husband, Rasheem Gagum, 24, were both arrested Thursday after Clarissa became upset that her order of chicken wings was wrong and pulled out a gun inside the restaurant. According to officials, the incident happened at the FU Wangz located in the 2100 block of Carolina Beach Road. Linda Rawley, spokesperson for the WPD, said Clarissa walked into the restaurant and ordered bone-in chicken wings, but received boneless...

    The address “1209 North Orange Street” in Wilmington, Del., has become known in recent years as the epicenter of U.S. corporate secrecy. The squat, split-level building is the official address of over 285,000 companies, many of which are looking to take advantage of Delaware’s Panama-like secrecy rules, tax incentives, and business-friendly case law.In the wake of the recent “Panama Papers” scandal, this unassuming brick office has received renewed scrutiny from the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Telegraph, and advocates for corporate tax reform.But one of its tenants may come as a surprise—a company owned by Democratic presidential frontrunner...

    A school district in Delaware scrambled to apologize Wednesday for accidentally sending parents a humorous "hurt feelings report" sheet that appeared to make light of bullying. The sheet was sent as an email attachment to parents whose children attend Lombardy Elementary School in Wilmington. At first, the document looks almost indistinguishable from the various bureaucratic reporting forms used by the government across the country. But at a closer glance, the irreverent tone of the sheet quickly becomes apparent. The principal purpose of the document is "to assist whiners in documenting hurt feelings." Various fields to fill out include the "whiner’s...

In addition to that, on July 1st of this year our university got its first out of the closet conservative chancellor. You heard that right. UNC-Wilmington is now under the leadership of a conservative chancellor. And he makes no effort to hide it. Jose "Zito" Sartarelli is just the man we have been looking for. Unlike me,...

Yet, Adams, a criminology professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington notorious for his anti-abortion and Christian views, was on the receiving end of an inquiry from a fellow professor who wondered about Adams' potential involvement with the shooting suspect. "Did you correspond with him Mike? Maybe inspire him a bit to complete his mission of murdering a university officer and 2 civilians?"

    Two police officers in Wilmington were injured while trying to catch and arrest a knife-wielding 28-year-old Maynard man who had threatened people at a commuter rail station Wednesday. Authorities say Seth Mather, used a knife to threaten two people near the Main Street train station around 3:40 p.m. The people, who weren’t identified by police, locked themselves in their cars while Mather yelled at them, police said. Mather allegedly slashed two tires. He eventually ran off, jumping off a train platform as police chased him. Officer Louis Martigetti slipped on the icy platform during the chase, injuring himself.

    WILMINGTON, Del. - (AP) -- Highway engineers say a crucial bridge on the Eastern Seaboard's interstate highway system could imperil drivers if traffic is allowed back on it. The bridge, near Wilmington, Delaware, was closed Monday when its support pillars were found to be tilting. The Interstate 495 bridge won't reopen anytime soon, highway officials said Tuesday, and the 90,000 vehicles that cross it every day are being diverted onto the main north highway, I-95, further overloading one of the most crowded arteries in America.

    Controversy has once again hit the campus of UNC-Wilmington. This time it's not my fault. The controversy is actually the fault of a student. His crime is simple: He decided to behave like a feminist behaves every day on campuses all across America. Unfortunately for him, he chose to do so without the proper genitalia and without the approval of the UNCW Women's Resource Center. I was introduced to the controversy shortly after a student of mine finished taking her final exam of the semester. After she had left my 2 pm exam, she came into my 3:30 class and,...

    At the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Dr. Mike Adams teaches crime — but he never dreamed he’d be the victim of one. Unfortunately for the assistant professor, that all changed when his ideology did. When he was hired as a criminology expert 21 years ago, Adams was an avowed and outspoken atheist — a worldview that was shaken to the core when Mike went to visit a prisoner on death row in 2000. The convict, a mentally handicapped man, had read the entire Bible — something Adams had never done. He resolved then and there to change that —...

    First Amendment enthusiasts are thrilled that Mike Adams, a criminology professor at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, won his lawsuit against administrators who denied him a promotion because of his conservative, Christian views. Adams joined the university in 1993. He was an atheist at the time. By the year 2000, he had converted to Christianity and become an outspoken political conservative. He eventually wrote columns for Townhall.com. In 2006, he was denied a promotion. Administrators were retaliating against him for his conservative views, he claimed. The jury agreed. Adams’s lawyers said the victory is an important one for free speech...

Then, if poop found in the complex matches a pet, the owner will be fined and also will have to pay for the DNA testing which can cost up to $50.

And this collective “mental illness” is causing record levels of crime and gun violence in this mostly black town of 70,000. That is the official diagnosis of the city council, which, by unanimous agreement earlier this month, asked the Centers for Disease Control to investigate a wave of psychological mayhem that has turned this historic and once-charming city into an unrecognizable husk of its former self. Chief diagnostician of this crisis in public health is city council member Hanifa G.N. Shabazz: “There is a well known...

    The original news story from local sources and linked on the Drudge Report said 12 teens raped two women, aged 32 and 24, Thursday evening in Wilmington, Del., and police were looking for help in finding the suspects. The local Wilmington paper dutifully said the police were searching for “teens” of unspecified race. Only later was it reported the teens – all believed by police to be between age 12 and 17 – were also black. Local readers noticed the omission. “Maybe they could get some help finding these youths if they would give a description,” said Michael Harmon in...

    April 26, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The parallels between Kermit Gosnell’s “house of horrors” in Philadelphia and Planned Parenthood of Delaware’s Wilmington clinic at 7th & Shipley Streets are too numerous to ignore. Most people think Gosnell an anomaly among abortion providers. They are ignoring a growing body of evidence to the contrary. Untrained staff, filthy equipment, unsterilized and reused instruments, complete lack of oversight by any governing agency, and abusive, contemptuous doctors are more the norm in freestanding abortion clinics than the public is willing to admit. 3601 Lancaster Ave. and 625 Shipley St. are ample proof that abortion in...

He's never been in my cab....

    Police in Delaware are slowly piecing together the details surrounding the death of former presidential advisor John P. "Jack" Wheeler III. It now seems Wheeler spent at least two days wandering the streets of Wilmington disoriented. Police say Wheeler traveled from Washington, D.C., where he worked, to Wilmington Tuesday on an AMTRAK train. He was last seen alive at 3:30 p.m. Thursday near the Hotel duPont parking garage at 10th and Orange streets.

    I have to respect Glenn Beck's zeal and desire to restore America to traditional values, and in some way restore people to some sort of deity. I am just not sure if he is steering people toward The Way, The Truth, and The Life. Glenn, appearing in Wilmington Ohio, preached to an auditorium full of townspeople who have gained national publicity (primarily through Beck) for their 24 hour a day, 7 day a week prayer vigils asking God to reclaim their city as well as their country, and their own souls. The people of Wilmington were driven to their knees...

    North Carolina’s junior senator will be in the Port City this Friday to be the keynote speaker at Wilmington Downtown Inc’s annual spring luncheon. But it’s unlikely U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan will be joining local members of the Tea Party movement outside the Hilton Wilmington Riverside. That, however, won’t deter the conservative groups from holding “a Tea Party in the senator’s honor.” Although not homogeneous, the Tea Party movement in general believes in less government and more fiscal responsibility. The sprung up last year largely in the wake of President Barack Obama’s $787 billion stimulus-spending package, which many conservatives viewed...

    The gardens were built when the Abbey of Cernes was transformed into a country mansion in the mid-16th century after the Dissolution of the Monasteries. One resident who may have been responsible for the gardens was Denzil Holles, a characterful MP who fought for the Parliamentarians but was a Royalist at heart and who occupied the house from 1642-66. The Rev John Hutchins, a local historian writing in 1774, claimed that he was told that the giant was "a modern thing" cut by Lord Holles. The National Trust, which owns the field where the giant is carved, suggests that the...

    It's been 110 years Monday since the bloody overthrow of Wilmington's black government. Hundreds of residents and local leaders gathered over the weekend to dedicate the 1898 Memorial, marking the only coup d'etat in U.S. history. Many who came to see the memorial called it a step toward reconciliation. And it wasn't lost on Reverend John Veasey that the dedication came less than a week after the U.S. elected its first black president. "I'm just glad to see what has happened and is going to happen, not only in Wilmington but also in the United States and in the world....
