Ironman heroes overcome illness, display perseverance
rejects zoning height limit

When Kirk Smith was diagnosed with incurable stage three lung cancer in 2013, the doctors told him he had a 5 percent chance to live another five years. Three years later, he is alive and thriving, and will compete in the Ironman triathlon this weekend in Wrightsville Beach. “When I was first diagnosed, I remember having a breathing test,” Smith said. “They asked me to breathe into a tube, and I couldn’t do it without a severe pain. Going from that where I was, being short of breath, to now doing this is insane in a lot of ways.” Smith has acted as the face of Free to Breathe, a lung cancer resource and research charity, in previous races. The organization recruited him for its team for this weekend’s race, connecting him to Wilmington-based clinical research firm PPD. The company identified Smith and four other athletes as heroes for the PPD Ironman North Carolina triathlon. The event, previously known as the PPD Beach2Battleship triathlon, will n See IRONMAN Page 2

Preteen cheers her way to victory over heart disease By Krys Estes Contributing Writer

David, Riley and Kim Burns attend the 2016 Cape Fear Heart Walk at the University of North Carolina Wilmington on Saturday, Oct. 15.
Hundreds of local supporters gathered for the annual Cape Fear Heart Walk on the University of North Carolina Wilmington campus Saturday morning while 12-year-old cheerleader Riley Burns rooted on the crowd. No one would ever be able to tell that the preteen was diagnosed with third-degree conductive heart block, with syncope and arrhythmia, and had surgery to receive her first adult-size pacemaker to help control her heart beat three years ago. “I feel great,” Riley said. The American Heart Association awarded Riley with a Lifestyle Change Achievement Award, an award designed to recognize those who have made positive changes to improve their quality of life and influenced those around them to live healthier lives as well. Recipients are nominated by friends, colleagues and family members then chosen by a selection committee. “Riley has been a great example for other kids who have similar cases,” Riley’s mother, Kim Burns, said. “Other kids should know it doesn’t have to be a fear or an issue to remain active after a surgery like that.

Wrightsville reviewing new beach access products By Terry Lane Staff Writer
For many, the beach is a paradise. But for those who are confined to a wheelchair or have limited mobility, the beach is a barrier, with its soft, fine sand blocking the path to the crystal blue water of the Atlantic Ocean. “I’ve lived here 26 years and I’ve never been able to put my feet in the water,” said Mike Purvis, a Landfall resident and disabled veteran with multiple sclerosis who is confined to a motorized wheelchair. To remedy that, Wrightsville Beach and other local beach communities are looking at ways to clear a path for Purvis and others in wheelchairs to reach the ocean. On Monday,
Wrightsville Beach hosted a demonstration with four vendors offering new methods to reach the beach, including a hardened matt that can support Purvis’ wheelchair and the latest in wheelchair design. Like many other beach towns, Wrightsville Beach offers special sand wheelchairs that can be rented free of charge. The town has five of the chairs, which feature large wheels that make it easier to push people to the edge of the water. Wrightsville Beach is also researching the new beach access products after some people have asked for more options. The sand wheelchairs are only available at the town’s parks and recreation department and users are responsible for transporting the chair to the beach by themselves. n See ACCESS Page 2

The Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen rejected a new zoning classification that would have raised the height limit on development in the lot by Johnnie Mercer’s Pier from 40 feet to 50 feet. Before voting 3-1 to reject the proposal on Thursday, Oct. 13, each alderman acknowledged they faced a difficult decision, citing the need for a more comprehensive approach to reviewing the town’s 40-foot building height limit that developers said made it unprofitable for them to build in the vacant lot. It took prodding from the town attorney before the board took a vote, as there was hesitation to propose a vote either for or against the proposal. Alderwoman Lisa Weeks was the only board member to vote in favor of the proposal. n See HEIGHT Page 2
Board selects land use committee By Terry Lane Staff Writer
Launching a process that will set the tone for development in Wrightsville Beach for a decade or longer, the board of aldermen created a committee Thursday, Oct. 13 that will review the town’s land use plan, which sets guidelines for commercial and residential projects. In addition to selecting 11 members and two alternates to the land use plan steering committee, the aldermen also chose two alternates, as board members said they wanted to ensure the committee could complete its work should any members drop off. The committee will consider a number of items, including establishing land use goals and policy, maintaining the town’s family-friendly atmosphere, developing the town’s marina district and the area around Johnnie Mercer’s Pier, and setting building height requirements and floodplain regulations. Mayor Pro Tem Darryl Mills, an attorney, was selected to represent the board on the committee. Two current members of the town’s planning board, n See COMMITTEE Page 2

take place Saturday, Oct. 22. The other heroes for this year’s race include Emily Schaller, Robert Moore, Willie Vasser Jr. and Mollie Darby. Each was chosen as a hero because they have personally benefited from clinical research to help them, or a family member, overcome various forms of cancer, cystic fibrosis or multiple sclerosis. PPD is partnering with New Hanover Regional Medical Center for the competition to increase support for clinical research of these life-threatening illnesses. Highlighting the stories of these five athletes is one way of bringing attention to the success of clinical research, the company said. “This is not about raising awarenesss — we’re all aware of cancer,” Smith said. “This
is about educating people that research makes a huge difference. Research saves lives and allows cancer patients like me to live an active life.” Smith attributes his current health state to two experimental therapies that he has used to treat his illness. His lymph nodes are currently clear and his tumors have shrunk since his diagnosis, allowing him to return to an active lifestyle. Each of the heroes will participate in some part of the triathlon. Some will complete an entire half triathlon and others will take part in a relay team. “I had given up on long distance racing, but because of these medications, I can compete,” Smith said. Some of the heroes’ illnesses are now in complete remission because of the clinical research methods and others, while they have not eliminated the illnesses

altogether, are able to cope and mediate the impact on their everyday health. PPD will honor the heroes during an invitation-only award ceremony Friday, Oct. 21 at the company’s headquarters. “We applaud the PPD Heroes for their perseverance and courage in overcoming serious illness and participating in this challenging triathlon, demonstrating as the Ironman team says, that anything is possible,” said David Simmons, PPD CEO and chairman. Nearly 3,000 people will participate in varying parts of the race this weekend. The competition will begin in Wrightsville Beach and end near PPD’s headquarters in downtown Wilmington. “I’ll be at the start line with everyone else, nervous as a cat. I’ve already done more than I thought I could do just by getting here,” Smith said.

real estate developer James “Jim” Smith and pilot David Culp were also selected. Other members include South End Surf Shop owner Jeff DeGroote, auto dealership general manager Pat Koballa, attorney Robert “Bob” O’Quinn, chiropractor William “Bill” Sisson Jr., home builder Jim Busby, Realtor Susan Collins, retired CEO Robert Tillman and retired insurance agent Calvin Wells. Auto dealer Allen Rippy and architect Frank Smith Jr. were selected as alternates. The state’s Coastal Area Management Act requires all towns on the coast to either have a plan for land use or be included in the county’s plan. Wrightsville Beach last updated its plan in 2005. The committee is scheduled to have its first meeting in November and expected to have a draft ready by April 2017.
However, when presented the opportunity, Weeks didn’t propose a motion to vote in favor of the new zoning class but voted against the motion by Mayor Pro Tem Darryl Mills to deny the proposal. Aldermen Hank Miller and Elizabeth King did vote in favor of Mills’ motion and Mayor Bill Blair did not vote, arriving late to the meeting after being out of town, visiting his daughter who gave birth earlier in the day. Cameron Zurbruegg, a consultant for developer Coastal N.C. Real Estate, said the principles would meet to discuss options for the property, which could include making adjustments to a project that’s already permitted for the lot, or developing a new project that doesn’t mix commercial and residential units. The vote came after a public hearing on the proposed mixed use overlay district, which was written to apply only to the C-2 zoning district by Johnnie Mercer’s Pier. While there has been public opposition to raising the height limit in the past, twice as many residents spoke in favor of approving the zoning proposal than those speaking against it. Opposition comments were brief, including one person who didn’t affirm opposition, but merely urged caution by the board.

Katie Ryan, the town’s parks and recreation program supervisor, said the town would need to find grant money to fund any new beach accessibility products. The sand wheelchairs aren’t a good option for everyone. Transferring occupants can be an imposition or in some cases impossible, especially for people like Purvis, an adult who would have to be fully lifted out of his own chair. Instead, two vendors demonstrated special mats that can be laid onto the sand and accommodate wheelchairs like Purvis’. One style included a more durable deck of thicker plastic, which Purvis said worked better for his chair. Purvis has experience with beach access mats, as he has visited Hilton Head, South Carolina, which has 12 of the mats installed at beach access
Mills noted the difficulty of the decision before his vote and the validity of the issues raised by supporters. “It was persuasive. But not quite persuasive enough for me,” Mills said. “With the circumstances before us, I don’t think this is the time to make this change.” While there is a specific development proposed for the 1.1-acre lot, the hearing was limited to the zoning issue. But the project was frequently referenced, as was the need for some kind of development in the vacant lot of eight years that neighbors called “blighted.” “We can all agree, we’re not happy with the way it is now,” Mills said. Some board members echoed comments that Blair made to Lumina News this week, believing that any change in the height limits should be addressed in the town’s land use plan. Since the town will begin the process of reviewing and revising the land use plan soon, some members said the board should wait before approving the new zoning classification. Joseph Taylor, a senior real estate attorney at Wilmington’s Murchison, Taylor & Gibson law firm representing the developers, said the land use plan was a guiding document, but not a legally binding ordinance. Town manager Tim Owens said the land use plan didn’t regulate
height directly, but did address implementation. He said before the vote that should the board approve the zoning district, it would probably need to address the addition in the land use plan. Mills said the land use plan sets the “intent and spirit” of the town’s development, a sentiment reflected by other members. “I do believe our land use plan is a guideline,” King said. “We need an updated land use plan. I have a hard time going with this proposal as is.” Weeks said she supported the concept of a mixed-use overlay district for a handful of parcels in commercial zones that are conducive to mixed use so that residents can have more commercial amenities in Wrightsville Beach as congestion across the bridge in Wilmington increases. Miller said he doesn’t support a height change, but he’s “not against looking at it.” Several residents urged the board to act, arguing the lot has been vacant for too long and that it attracts crime to the area by Johnnie Mercer’s Pier. A homeowner on neighboring Seagull Street said he was speaking on behalf of at least 26 other residents, noting that the lot was decreasing home values and damaging the town’s image. “People rave about the town, but are shocked when they come into that area,” Wayne Bland said.
happened to her now.” Riley had always been a healthy child with no detected heart abnormalities, her parents said. Doctors believe her heart issues were caused by rheumatic fever she experienced earlier as a child. Riley maintains an active lifestyle as she cheers for both her school and on an all-star cheer team. “Her peers have been wonderful,” Kim Burns said. “She has the best support group. No one treats her any differently. I read an article about a 16-year-old girl who had a similar procedure as Riley and she said the best thing her parents ever did was just let
her be a kid after the surgery. So we just let her do her own thing.” Kim Burns said her daughter was usually just on the sidelines before the surgery and wanted to tumble and cheer after the surgery, which is when she became the most active in her life. “It’s been as much of a physical journey as well as an emotional one for her,” Kim Burns said. The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s largest single fundraising event across the nation. Funds raised support research, public health programs and community education to fight heart disease and stroke, America’s No.1 and No.5 killers.
points around the island. “I’ve seen it work. I know it works,” Purvis said of the mats. “It would give an opportunity to experience the beach to a lot of people.” Shannon Bordeaux of Rocky Point, North Carolina, was there on Monday to test the beach access products. Her 6-year-old son Joren is in a wheelchair and they helped test the town’s wheelchair-accessible Liberty Swings that were installed in May at the Wrightsville Beach Park playground. While she can move Joren to a beach accessible chair now, she knows that might not be the case when he grows up. “Right now, I can do it, but when he gets older, the transfers will get more difficult,” Bordeaux said. Bordeaux said Wrightsville Beach’s Public Beach Access No. 4 provides better infrastructure to reach the beach than anything available in Surf City,
the other beach town her family often visits. In addition to pushing him over the different mats, she also tested some of the beach chairs brought out for the demonstration, pushing him up and down the incline at Public Beach Access No. 16 at Salisbury Street by Johnnie Mercer’s Pier. Representatives of Carolina Beach, Oak Island and the N.C. Division of Coastal Management were also present to see the demonstration. Like Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach and Oak Island offer sand wheelchairs free of charge. There is high demand for the chairs in all three towns, they said. “They were checked out all summer long and used by all demographics,” said Rebecca Squires of Oak Island Parks and Recreation. “People really appreciated it. We’ve had a terrific response.”

BEACH BRIEFS Utility authority imposes mandatory water restrictions
The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) imposed mandatory water restrictions for all commercial and residential customers in its service area after a water line break on Oct. 15. The restrictions prohibit use of all irrigation systems, hose and sprinkler systems, residential vehicle washing, fountains and artificial water features, and other nonessential uses. Also, the CFPUA is requiring indoor use restrictions by asking customers to take short showers instead of baths, running the dishwasher only when full and limiting flushing of toilets. First offenses can result in warnings, though subsequent offenses can net a $500 fine and possible termination of service if violations continue to occur.

Wilmington takes back the night, instills hope By Alexandra Golder Contributing Writer
The faces of young people revealed hope Thursday evening in downtown Wilmington as community members, young and old, rallied at the courtyard of the historic New Hanover County Courthouse. It was a unified effort to raise awareness about domestic violence and commemorate domestic violence awareness month, nationally recognized in October. “Young children are the agents of change,” said Monika Johnson Hostler, executive director of the North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault and keynote speaker at the 27th annual Take Back the Night march and rally. “Teaching our children what to question is how we change our culture.” Featured at the event was the Silent Witness Exhibit, a traveling
“Young children are the agents of change. Teaching our children what to question is how we change our culture.” memorial featuring eight names, ages and life-sized silhouettes of real North Carolina women that were killed as a result of domestic violence. Led by the Wilmington Police Department and the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Department, the march through the streets of Princess, Front, Market and Third stopped traffic and gained attention from onlookers eating a meal on the sidewalk or taking a stroll after dinner. “Law enforcement does so much in terms of combating the
issue of domestic violence,” said Andrea Stough, outreach coordinator of The Open Gate Domestic Violence Shelter and Services. Stough said the response to the event was phenomenal and relied on collaborating with partner advocacy groups and those who have been affected by domestic violence. Chants, such as “people unite, take back the night” and “there’s no excuse for domestic abuse,” echoed in the streets. Handmade signs read “no means no” and “love should not hurt.” The event provided an opportunity for the friends and family of victims to remember them, Stough said. Musician Laura McLean, poets Kelly Williams and Dierdre Parker and two female dance members of UNCW’s Physical Graffiti performed during the rally. The theme was sparking creativity and illuminating hope, Johnson Hostler said.

Editorial/Opinion My thoughts B y P at B r a d f o r d
North Carolinians living and working and going about their days just an hour and a half away to our northwest took a big hit from Hurricane Matthew a couple of weeks ago. While I was celebrating because we had almost no real damage here at the coast, they were going underwater. I saw the kind of heartbreak flooding causes when I traveled by van to Louisiana at the first of September with a team to cook and feed flood victims. And taking nothing from them, what has happened in our state seems far more extensive. The need is huge. In Louisiana, we were housed with teams of ordinary people who were there tearing out all that had been ruined by floodwater in people’s homes: the furnishings, carpet, and walls right down to the studs. There is urgency, before the mold sets in. Floodwater is nasty, a toxic mix of bad stuff including sewage and chemicals. Nothing it touches can be kept. It all goes out on the curb in ginormous stinky piles. Businesses will have to be gutted, all inventory lost. Relief efforts are underway,
but will still be needed a long, long time from now. Matthew was our state’s Sandy and Katrina. As the tragedy unfolds, something bugs me greatly — outrages me really. In Louisiana, I was shocked to hear people, victims and some who came to help, say the rains and high water that produced the thousand-year flood event were God’s judgment. That is a lie born and perpetuated in hell. Hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes, fires, even terrorists flying planes into buildings — none of it is God’s judgment. Yes, this country is a mess, but to label it God’s judgment is twisted theology. Anyone speaking this lie shows that they really do not know the Lord. He is a good Father. He does not punish us to get our attention, to wake us up from our sin, to teach us a lesson. That is a total lie. And for it to be perpetuated by some in the church is an abomination. Anyone who repeats it negates (rejects) what Jesus did for all mankind. God the Father loves us, He sees up through the filter of the

bloodshed for us on the cross. The whole point of Jesus coming to Earth was to pay the price for the sins of the whole world, past, present and future. When He hung on that cross, standing in for us, He took on every curse, every lie, every plague, every bit of sickness, every bad thing. That is why it is called the Good News. He came to redeem us, to restore our relationship with the Father that Adam lost for all of us when the snake came slithering in with a lie — eat from the tree, it won’t hurt you. It is always a lie. What happened this month was NOT an act of God, it was an act of pure evil. It is simple: Good = God. Bad = evil. It is time to reject the lie. It is also time to help our neighbors. The obvious way is with dollars, but be careful where you donate. Some of these organizations — government, religious and civic — have huge infrastructure and people with big salaries and so little of what is given actually goes to help the disadvantaged. Local people and organizations are loading up and heading out to help. First Fruit Ministries is one. Mike Thornton of Ignite Ministries here in Wilmington is another, with the Jesus Tent set up on the grounds of the Rock Church of God at 2209 Carthage Road in Lumberton. You can donate through them; I am sure there is an online way. If you want to put feet on the ground, that is also a good place to begin. Go there and hook up, plug in and fill a need. Take some canned goods, baby supplies, toothpaste, and a willing heart. And while you’re there, let the people know that this isn’t judgment. God loves them.
Hook, Line & Sinker Storm minimally impacts local fishing By Skylar Walters
The fishing for our area waters has lately been nothing short of fantastic with decent reports coming in for several inshore species. Hurricane Matthew’s heavy rains caused the water clarity to be is less than ideal, however that doesn’t seem to be having too much of an effect on the fish. Water temperatures are still reading in the mid-70s and should dip another degree or two before the end October. The speckled trout fishing fired off right on schedule and plenty of anglers have reported fish-filled days with limits for all on board and many more released. Many (including me) thought the trout season would be delayed due to the influx of fresh water and debris, but it doesn’t appear as if it has slowed them down one bit. Artificial baits work fine and just about any soft bait in the 3- to 4-inch range should produce, although some anglers have their favorites, such as Gulp and DOA brands. Color variation is another topic that we could spend hours on as each angler has his or her own preference. If you don’t have a color in mind, talk to some of the local tackle shop guys and they can direct you to what’s been flying off the shelves. Large red drum have been a topic of conversation for anglers targeting them for the past couple of weeks. While some of the piers have gotten into the action

both before and after the storm, the areas just off of the beaches of Oak Island are producing some quality over-slot opportunities. Cut mullet or menhaden rigged on a circle hook and fished on the bottom is the method most are using. Use some stouter rods and reels so the fish have to endure a long fight. This will increase their chances for survival when releasing them. In other inshore news, the flounder fishing will remain open past the Oct. 16 deadline due to an injunction filed by a judge. The injunction basically will allow fishing for and possession of flounder until the injunction can be heard in court. The size limit remains at 15 inches with a six fish limit. Elsewhere, the large Virginia mullet are making a good appearance in the surf with fresh shrimp and sand fleas being the best choices of bait. Lots of spots, some pretty large, have also started showing up with regularity and fresh shrimp and even the artificial fish bites are catching them. Off the beach, when conditions allow, the king mackerel bite has been good from right on the beach out to around 10 miles or so. Anglers are also reporting lots of Spanish mackerel and false albacore in the same areas.

October 16, 2016, 6:42 p.m. Humbles
Only the one who humbles himself like a child will enter heaven when his time has passed Your glory will be a part of your life as you ask for the forgiveness that will last Far beyond the goodness that comes from the material things of this Earth The one who humbles himself will break through to the kingdom that has more worth Keep your walk straight and your faith strong with the word of truth All the time you spend with Me in prayer will return you to your youth The way you accept the events of your day will keep you strong and healthy Just because you do not have earthly possessions does not mean you are not wealthy Anything that humbles you will be a blessing that most will not understand All that the enemy throws at you humbles you and will not stand Your strength comes from Me and nothing formed against you will last All that you have overcome humbles you and remains in your past Rejoice and be glad that you have a Father of Love standing at your side
Confess all your sins openly and never give in to the avarice of pride Become like a child and enjoy each day with all your emotions set free Step out and love one another openly so that all the world can see (1 Sam 2:7 NIV) The LORD sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts. (Isa 26:5 NIV) He humbles those who dwell on high, he lays the lofty city low; he levels it to the ground and casts it down to the dust. (Mat 18:4 NIV) Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Mat 23:12 NIV) For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. (Luke 14:11 NIV) For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” (Luke 18:14 NIV) “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

One year with Jesus in the Gospels
teaching God’s unconditional love and grace
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO THE FATHER October 20 John 14:5 “Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?” JOHN 14:5-6 Thomas knew Jesus. He just didn’t realize Jesus was “the way.” Likewise, people today know portions of God’s Word but they don’t realize that God’s Word is their way to victory. Often, people cry out for God to speak to them while their Bible lays unopened on their nightstand. God has spoken to us through His Word. We just need to believe it and receive its truths as our way to victory. Jesus didn’t say: “I am a way, a truth, and a life.” He claimed to be the only way, truth, and life. No man can come to the Father except through Jesus. This means that anyone who claims to honor Jesus while advocating other ways to get to God, truth, or life, besides
Jesus, is deceived or a deceiver. Jesus’ claims about Himself, of which there is only one, left no room for other means to salvation. He is either who He says He is, or He is the greatest deceiver of all time. His own statements about Himself leave no other alternatives. Therefore, other religions that recognize Jesus and His teachings as wonderful examples, but don’t believe He is the only way to achieve salvation, are false. The Word of God is a spiritual book written under the direction of the Holy Spirit. It was not written to our head but to the innermost part of our heart. This is why some people find the Bible so hard to understand. They are trying to comprehend it using only their mind. The Word of God has to inspire our heart before it can enlighten our mind.
