Aldermen approve increases for parking rates, hours By Terry Lane Staff Writer

The rates will mostly be the same, but paid parking hours will be longer this year for many spots near Wrightsville Beach, as the board of aldermen approved now parking rules for 2018 that usher in a number of changes. The changes will add one hour to both the beachside lots that have bathrooms and the onstreet parking on the beach roads of Wrightsville Beach. Parking at beach spaces will continue to start at 9 a.m., whether at the lots or in a parking space, but hours are extend

an hour for each area, pushing lot enforcement pack to 8 p.m. and beach parking spaces back until 7 p.m. The lots include: South Lumina Parking Lot (near the Oceanic Restaurant), East & West Salisbury Street Parking Lots (adjacent to Johnny Mercer’s Pier), North Lumina Parking Lot (“L” shaped lot) and the North Wrightsville Beach Parking Lot (adjacent to Shell Island). The board also raised the daily rate from $15 to $17, which aldermen would keep the daily rate in line with the increase in hours. The board also voted to remove some of the “old grey” meters,

and instead go exclusively with pay-by-phone parking, at parking spots on Waynick Boulevard spots between Sunset Avenue and Bellamy Street and on North Lumina Avenue street spots north of the Holiday Inn. The board also voted to add more paid parking spots on Causeway Drive that would allow for pay-by-phone parking or residential hanging tags, as well as remove a 20-foot section of parking near the entrance of Sea Path Condominiums. Paid parking resumes in many areas of Wrightsville Beach on March 1. Ben Bourgeois

Daddy-Daughter dance at Northeast Library

Wrightsville Beach surfer Bourgeois inducted into East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame By Terry Lane Staff Writer

Wrightsville Beach got its first entry into the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame in January when Ben Bourgeois joined with a collection of idols, mentors, colleagues and friends. “I’m pretty young to be getting in there, so it’s kind of a shock,” said Bourgeois in a telephone call from the Dominican Republic. “I still feel like I have a lot to do and a lot to prove.” As the only North Carolina

surfer to ever make the ASP World Tour, Bourgeois said that East Coast surfers who make the tour generally find their way into the hall of fame. Bourgeois was inducted during the Jan. 25-27 Surf Expo show in Orlando, Fla. The 2018 class includes surf professionals who helped mold Bourgeois’ career, including his former coach for the World Surfing Games, Kevin Grondin of New Hampshire, and board shaper Bill Johnson of Florida, who built many of Bourgeois’

competition boards. All the guys that I got inducted with that night have helped me throughout my career,” Bourgeois said. “A lot of the people I look up to have already been inducted. The list is way too long to name them all.” By entering the hall of fame, Bourgeois joins surfers he has idolized throughout his career, namely Kelly Slater, as well as the Lopez and Hobgood brothers. n See SURFPage 2

Sidewalk, new parking lot among WB changes coming soon By Lena Moriarty Intern

With no sidewalk in the vicinity, Wrightsville Beach is planning for construction of a high visibility crosswalk near the corner of Parmele Boulevard and North Lumina Avenue will begin this spring. “The area serves a large segment of our year-round population,” said Town Manager Tim Owens. No sidewalk is currently present in the high-traffic area, Owens said, adding that the handicapped ramp does not currently meet

Department of Transportation specifications. To resolve safety concerns, low-cost sidewalks will be constructed on the Parmele Boulevard side while sidewalk installations will also be layered out on North Lumina Avenue to prevent pedestrians from cutting corners when crossing the street. “This facility would serve that whole community year round,” said Owens of the crosswalk. “It will allow pedestrians to cross much more safely.” Engineering firm SEPI quoted the cost of building at $70,000 with an exact estimate to be

submitted in late February, with construction expected to begin in April. In other town news:

Valentine Run draws 300 runners, including dozens for new 15K race By Mel Beasley Intern

Just an hour after sunrise in Wrightsville Beach, nearly 300 runners from the annual Valentine Run made their way around the Loop as the starting gun fired promptly at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10, with more than 60 racing a new distance for the first time in the annual race’s history. Aaron Kolk, of Wilmington , won the first-ever men’s “Double Trouble” 15K run with a time of 48:54 while Peyton Thomas, also of Wilmington, was the second finisher and top woman in the distance, with a time of 52: 48. Both runners also won first place in the 5k and 10k challenges within their divisions. Justin Fischetti placed second in the men’s division with

Jonathan Wood finishing third, while Melissa Quaranto finished second and Casey Henrie finished third in the women’s division. Runners were clad in Valentine’s Day themed, heart-accented clothes colored in red, white and pink. Proceeds from the race will benefit events and activities provided free to the community Wrightsville Beach Parks and Recreation events and activities including concerts and movies in the park, Bark in the Park canine disc championships, and the sand wheelchair program, according to the department’s event page. The race consisted of a 5k, 10k and a new Double Trouble 15k option which involved running both the 5k and then the 10k just an hour after that. Only 67 runners participated in the Double Trouble 15k challenge

with an average completion time of about one hour. The 5K course took runners from Wrightsville Beach Park around the infamous Loop, and the 10K course took runners from Wrightsville Beach Park, circled underneath the Wrightsville Beach drawbridge and over the Causeway to the magnificent view of Banks Channel along Waynick Boulevard before returning to Wrightsville Beach Park, according to the website’s course map. “These events help fund things like community concerts and free activities provided by our department,” said Katie Ryan, a coordinator with Parks and Recreation.

gravel from the current unpaved lot, bringing in unwanted dirt, an issue that will be resolved once the gravel and grassy areas are paved. Still water also builds up in the area when it rains, Owens said. The area in front of the two buildings is often used for overflow parking, especially during summer events at Wrightsville Beach Park. The town does not have a cost estimate, but the town has budgeted $40,000 to pave and construct this lot. The town is working with contractor Cape Fear Engineers to build the parking lot, with a construction start planned for spring of 2019. “We have a lot of activities here in Town Hall,” Town Manager Tim Owens said of the need for this new parking lot. “It will really benefit that whole area.” The parking lot will be accessible from both Bob Sawyer Drive and Gene Floyd Drive.

Public restrooms kept open for winter

A Wrightsville Beach public bathroom that was opened yearround beginning this winter is getting wide use during warmer days, as the board of aldermen will consider usage when contemplating whether to keep other bathrooms open all year. The public restroom at the Trolley Stop Mini Park between

Feb. 15 - Feb. 21, 2018 South Lumina Avenue and Waynick Boulevard was opened for use for visitors this winter after a vote by the board of aldermen on Oct. 5. The Trolley Stop public bathroom will now be one of three WB bathrooms open during the winter months. The Mercer’s public bathroom and the bathroom by the tennis courts will also remain open year-round. Depending on the amount of use the Trolley Stop bathroom receives will determine whether or not this becomes the permanent public bathroom schedule. Wrightsville Beach is seeing an influx of beachgoers as early as February some years when the weather brings warmer days, Owens said. The town’s aldermen are looking at issues over the the funding and upkeep of the restrooms during the winter months. The fixed costs to operate the four restrooms in the offseason total about $2,800 a month, said Bill Squires, Public Works Director. Keeping these restrooms open throughout the year will also require maintenance throughout the year, which poses another potential issue for the scheduling change. There are also some additional costs such as stocking and cleaning the facilities, Owens said, adding that as of this month, operations are running smoothly.

levels and ages are encouraged, beginner lessons starting at 6:30 p.m. and advanced at 7:30 p.m. at Fran Russ Recreation Center at 1 Bob Sawyer Dr. Meanwhile, the East Coast Shag Classic event ran from Feb. 8 to 11, and included live music from bands such as Black Water Rhythm and Blues Band, the Band of Oz, Smokin Hot, and Steve Owens and Summertime. Ken and Sandy Jones were the weekend’s emcees and dance instructors, leading a group of about 30 people from all ages groups and dance levels. Event director Penny Millis said that attendance was strong again, with shaggers coming from as far as Maryland, Georgia and Tennessee. “It’s great to bring it back to where it all started,” said Millis, noting the dance’s local roots to New Hanover County. Hope Abounds has hosted the East Coast Shag Classic Fundraising Events for nearly 10 years, and utilizes all profits from the event to help fund programs within their organization to help newly diagnosed cancer patients navigate their journey to healing. Women of Hope and A Kids Hope are both programs of Hope Abounds, Inc. which has dedicated itself to enhancing the lives of women, children and teen cancer patients along with their families. Hope Abounds provides support services for educational opportunities, patient advocacy and financial assistance. Millis said the shagging community enjoys the annual event because of the opportunity it offers to give back. “The shagging community is all about helping others,” Millis said.

Former NBA Player to talk improving youth sports

Cucalorus Film Foundation to Receive $20,000 Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts

The YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina has invited former NBA player, Bob Bigelow to Wilmington to talk to coaches, parents, and volunteers involved with youth sports. Bob Bigelow is one of the foremost lecturers in the county regarding the needs of children in youth sports, and using common-sense approaches to meet those needs. Today, over 35 million children ages 4 through 14 participate in some form of organized youth sports. Yet, over 70% of kids drop out by age 13 — missing opportunities for socialization, character development, exercise and fun. While kids do migrate to other activities as they get older, the number one reason children drop out is pressure from adults, and no longer finding their sports experiences fun. In this educational, challenging, motivational and humorous talk, Bob Bigelow offers a better understanding of what our kids really want and need from their sports activities, and a solution that helps them remain children at play. As an organization committed to strengthening our community through youth development, healthy living,

For the fifth year in a row, Cucalorus Film Foundation is proud to announce their receipt of an Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). The $20,000 grant will support the 24th annual Cucalorus Festival, happening November 7-11, 2018 in downtown Wilmington, NC with its three main programs: Film, Stage and Connect. Cucalorus connects visionary leaders in film, performance and technology and supports the creation of new work, the development of new ideas, and the establishment of new partnerships through festivals, residencies, funding and education. Cucalorus explores innovation and creativity wherever it shows up in our world and supports the development of creative leaders who shape economic and cultural trends at both the local and global level. National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Jane Chu has approved more than $25 million in grants as part of the NEA’s first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2018. The Art Works category is the NEA’s largest funding category and supports projects that focus on the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong

and social responsibility, the YMCA of Southeastern NC is hosting this event for free- and everyone is invited! We would like to invite all youth sports organizations, clubs and teams to join us for this free talk in effort to improve our entire community’s youth sports programs. This free community event will take place at the Midtown YMCA Gymnasium located at 709 George Anderson Dr. Wilmington, NC 20412 on Thursday, March 1st from 6:30-8:00pm.

Cucalorus is one of two organizations in Wilmington, NC to receive funding through this grant. “These NEA-supported projects, such as this one to Cucalorus, are good examples of how the arts build stronger and more vibrant communities, improve well-being, prepare our children to succeed, and increase the quality of our lives,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “NEA funding allows Cucalorus to support bold new artists from all over the world, to connect them with North Carolina audiences, and to showcase the City of Wilmington as a world class cultural destination,” says Cucalorus Executive Director Dan Brawley. “We’re proud that our organization continues to receive support from the most important arts funder in the country.” At Cucalorus 23 last November, 203 separate events during the 5-day festival brought an accumulated attendance of 19,069 to Wilmington.

CFCC Wilma W. Daniels Gallery to open collaborative painting exhibit Stephanie Pierce: Indiana; Samantha Bates: Boston; Sam King: Arkansas; Rachel Hellmann: NYC; Gideon Bok: Maine; and Matt Murphy: Seattle will exhibit neither here nor there (or And) on February 23 at the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery. Neither here nor there (or And) presents a collection of paintings that elude, disrupt, and transform what seems familiar. The exhibit will run from February 19 to February 23, Monday through Friday from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. The opening reception will take place on February 23 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery, located at 200 Hanover Street, Wilmington, NC 28401. Dispersion is replaced by integration. “Either-or” must give way to “and.” —Wassily Kandinsky Like trying to describe a color with words, a painter reaches for what is hard to make real. Like color, a painting can seem to be more than one thing. Kandinsky praised the capacity for “thought in two simultaneous directions.” The way in which a painter wrestles with issues is hard to pin down. There is no ever-reliable solution. A painting depends not just on the painter, but also on the imagination and willingness of the viewer. The paintings are of time, intimate and incremental. As light passes through a window, across a wall, the movement is tracked, its warmth, refusing the easy, snapshot logic of a single moment. Other paintings begin with memories of specific places, but as the work develops, the places widen. Neither here nor there (or And) uses color and gesture simultaneously to suggest and negate space, light, narrative, engaging — and perhaps antagonizing — an instinct for recognition. The show will be comprised of up to two works from each artist (10-12 works) ranging in size from two to eight feet. Each piece will hang on the wall.
