Repeat win for flotilla’s tiniest boat By Terry Lane Staff Writer

By Terry Lane Staff Writer

A company with ties to a Charlotte developer is asking Wilmington to rezone several residential lots on Airlie Road next to the old Galleria Shopping Center site, which, if linked, would more than double the size of the commercial site to larger than 20 acres while creating access to two roads. The request, filed by corporate land owner SSG-1 LLC, covers several lots on Airlie Road just southeast of the entrance to Airlie Gardens, spanning from 201 to include 301, 315, 333 and 405 Airlie Road. Combined, the property is 11.43 acres, and is zoned R-15 for residential use only, Wilmington zoning officials said. n See GALLERIA Page 2

A refurbished longboard from the 1960s will be one of the featured items at Friday’s 12th Annual Hope from Helen Surf Silent Auction fundraiser, which every year draws a large crowd of participants to Wrightsville Beach for both the food and unique auction items. But as the annual event improves its online auction platform, it’s easier for bidders to miss the event entirely and still win items. “We make sure it’s a festive event because we want people to come out and mingle,” said event founder Tony Butler. “You don’t have to be present to win,

but with the food and the atmosphere, it’s a good opportunity to see everyone.” The event will be held Dec. 2 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Blockade Runner Beach Resort, with free food provided by Tower 7 and a ballroom that will have nearly 250 items up for silent auction, the proceeds from which are donated to local charitable organizations. These items will also be listed on the event’s online auction forum, where most already have received early bids. The online bidding forum can be found at the Hope from Helen Facebook page. The event always features a selection of unique surfboards, skateboards and paddleboards, Butler said, with the refurbished n See HOPE Page 2

Visit with Santa

Vintage surfboard among 250 Hope from Helen auction items By Terry Lane

The Jernigan brothers’ entry into the annual North Carolina Holiday Flotilla is always a rush job, as Brent and Chris have made decorating for the boat parade a Thanksgiving weekend tradition. This year, the owner of the smallest craft in the flotilla didn’t know how the illuminated boat would look to spectators. The design won Brent Jernigan’s 11.5-foot CraigCat boat the Best in Show award during the 33rd Annual North Carolina Holiday Flotilla on Saturday, Nov. 26. Jernigan won the award for the second straight year. “We were asking people on the shore, ‘Does it look like Santa Claus?’” said Brent Jernigan, whose creation was Santa on whitewater, complete with rowing arms that he operated with his brother’s help. “We have no idea what the boat looks like when it launches,” Chris Jernigan said Sunday, coincidentally also Brent’s birthday,

emergency responders revive overdose suspect By Terry Lane Staff Writer

On the eve of Thanksgiving, Wrightsville Beach first responders used a nasal spray recovery drug to revive a man in a West Henderson Street house. The Wrightsville Beach Fire Department administered the recovery drug Narcan to a 26-year-old man on Wednesday shortly after a 10 p.m. call to 14-A West Henderson St. Due to privacy protections in the federal health law HIPPA, Wrightsville Beach police said they weren’t permitted to identify the man. However, the police did obtain a search warrant for the house, where they found both narcotics and drug paraphernalia, Capt. J. Bishop said. Narcan is a nasal spray that revives a person overdosed on an opioid, which can include streetdrugs like heroin or prescription medication such as OxyContin. Bishop said evidence recovered from the house led to the belief that the man was suffering from a heroin overdose. After receiving the 911 call, emergency responders dispatched both ambulance and police to the house. Inside, officers found the man unconscious and with vomit on his face. Another person in the house was attempting to perform CPR before the first police officer responding took over the n See OVERDOSE Page 2

Wednesday, Jan. 4. The lots abut the 7.5-acre Galleria site, but if combined with other properties in the vicinity, the site would span 24.21 acres, with street access on both Airlie Road and Wrightsville Avenue. The lots on Airlie Road don’t currently have houses and are mostly overgrown with trees and brush. The city recently rezoned another property in the area to UMX to clear the way for a mixed-use development that is designed to accompany a mixeduse project at the site of the old Galleria, which was demolished in January 2015. On Nov. 1, the Wilmington City Council voted 5-1 to rezone the 5.4-acre lot at 7000 Wrightsville Ave. from a residential R-15 to the UMX. There’s currently a mobile home park on that lot. The request comes after a recent fight between residents and a local business over an effort to commercially zone a lot on Airlie Road. While most neighbors of the Dockside Restaurant said they supported construction of a new parking lot across the street from the restaurant, they couldn’t support the zoning change that could come with it. Residents argued changes to the city’s zoning code could accommodate the project without risking commercial zoning on the street. Email terrylane@luminanews.com

TOWN OF WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH IS ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR ADVISORY BOARD APPOINTMENTS

n RENTALS Continued from Page 1

Wrightsville Beach resident Donna Clemmons joked as she passed by the students’ temporary quarters. Bryant Real Estate began accepting completed student applications, co-signers and notarized paperwork beginning Thursday, Dec. 1, starting with the first campers queued. Sophomore UNCW student Matt Gaze snagged the third spot in line Tuesday morning.   “Actually, y’all scared an entire fraternity,” Gaze confessed to Bateman, who scored the coveted first dibs.  With around 15 homes on the island that participate in the student rental program with Bryant Real Estate, general manager Jason Bryant boils this phenomenon down to simple supply and demand.  “If we had more homes than students, we would not feel the need for this process, but this allows for the most structured and fair approach to meet the needs of both parties,” he said. The relationship between tenant, homeowner and property is a mutually beneficial one, local real estate managers say. “The biggest benefit with student rentals is guaranteed income,” said Carey McMullen, general manager of the vacation rental division at Intracoastal Realty. Intracoastal Realty runs a similar student rental program less than one mile away and two months ahead of Bryant’s.  Typically from mid-August to mid-May, student rentals provide reliable income

during the offseason and the “perfect window” for increased revenue throughout the on-season.  However, out of the 125 rental properties Intracoastal manages, only 10 are currently open to student renters. Intracoastal’s student waitlist is currently sitting at around 50 to 100 hopefuls. McMullen estimated they usually end up housing only two or three groups each year. “Really the best way to get in is if you know people who already have a house who can grandfather you in,” McMullen said.  Excluding services like Craigslist and Vacation Rentals By Owner, both Bryant and Intracoastal’s seasonal offerings are the most notable student rental programs on the island.  While both Bryant Real Estate and Intracoastal Realty openly recognize the economic value in student renters with such programs, Wrightsville Beach homeowners are slowly warming up to the idea. McMullen attributes this shortage in supply to the bad stigma that comes with being a student renter, but believes a lot of their owners are starting to get away from that. “You’re moving into a multi-million-dollar beach house. You can’t treat it like a fraternity house, you can’t have huge parties,” she said. With a stringent eviction policy, Intracoastal’s homeowners that participate are slowly becoming more comfortable with the idea of responsible and respectful student renters.  Bateman, Gaze and the slew of other student hopefuls who camped in front of Bryant Real Estate will learn in early March if their efforts will be rewarded.

after learning they won the $5,000 grand prize. The brothers, Brent from Lake Waccamaw and Chris from Morganton, didn’t have a chance to test the boat from a shoreline perspective. The judging was competitive this year, flotilla committee member Linda Brown said, fueled in part by an increase in text voting. “It was tight with the voting,” Brown said. “The text voting has been so overwhelming, it keeps growing every year. We love that this gets the crowd so involved.” In earning the People’s Choice award, Mark and Leslie Armstrong won $1,500 for nonprofit RescueConnect, which encourages animal adoption and foster rescue. This year, in a theme of “Hang Claws,” the hound surfed a wave while fans from the shore texted in their votes, helping to secure the donation to the organization. “We say, ‘Adopt not shop,’” said Leslie Armstrong, cofounder of the Wilmington-based organization. “We encourage

The Town of Wrightsville Beach is now accepting applications from Town residents who are interested in serving on the Planning Board, the Board of Adjustment, the Historic Landmark Commission, or the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee.

people to spay and neuter their pets and go to their local shelters. There are so many great adoptable animals there. And we’re always looking for new foster homes.” The creation of the artwork is a time-consuming process, Mark Armstrong said, as he and Leslie devote hours to threading a pegboard with the lights, but they said the reaction from the crowd makes the hard work worth it. “That’s the best part,” Mark Armstrong said. “The little kids like to see the dog.” Overall, Brown said it was another successful year for the flotilla, despite not securing a title sponsor for the event. The committee gained other, smaller sponsors that helped make up the difference in raising the prize money. The flotilla committee will once again present a $5,400 donation to the D.C. Virgo Preparatory Academy for its science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum, though this is the final year for the program, Brown said. Email terrylane@luminanews.com

He was conscious when he was taken to New Hanover County Medical Center. “Fortunately, there was someone with him, who could speak for him,” Bishop said. The use of the emergency recovery drug is rare for Wrightsville Beach, but not for the surrounding area. Opioid abuse is a problem often discussed by city and county officials and the city was rated the nation’s worst city for opioid abuse in an April study by San Francisco-based health care company Castlight Health.

The board was traded in nearly a decade ago to Sweetwater Surf Shop, where it had collected dust on the wall. “After nearly eight years in the rafters, it was time to clean it up and let it go,” Butler said of the 10-foot-long, single-fin board, which he estimates is valued at around $2,000. “It’s ready for a good new home, whether that’s putting it on the wall or riding it.” For wall items, Butler said there were several homemade artwork and home decor options up for auction.

administered Narcan more than 80 times in 2015 and he believes it will have used the rescue drug close to 100 times this year. Wrightsville Beach Fire Chief Glen Rogers said Narcan is not used as frequently in Wrightsville Beach. He said it has been used in no more than four occasions since Rogers started with the department in May. Rogers said police are not always called in an overdose response. In some cases, the overdose can be from prescribed painkillers. “Oftentimes, we may not know the medical situation, it’s not presented as an overdose,” Rogers said. “Sometimes it will have an effect on someone who’s unconscious or not breathing.” The drug is administered to people who are unconscious and are having trouble breathing. Bishop said Narcan can be safely administered to people who aren’t in an opioid overdose. Email terrylane@luminanews.com

Butler started the charity in 2005 to support his mother who was fighting lung and breast cancer without health insurance. The charity continued after her death in 2006, but the organization changed the name from Hope for Helen to Hope from Helen, to mirror its change in focus. Instead of raising money for his mother’s medical bills, Butler began raising money in her honor for others in the community through support to organizations specializing in health, education, animal welfare and the environment, as well as individuals in need.

Wynn ceremony debuts fire dept. honor guard By Terry Lane Staff Writer

On the 35 th anniversary of the death of a fallen comrade, the Wrightsville Beach Fire Department will debut its newly formed honor guard for a march into Wynn Plaza to remember his sacrifice as the sole Wrightsville Beach firefighter to die in the line of duty. The memorial service for Lt. Robert Wynn is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6, where the Wrightsville Beach Fire Department Honor Guard will make its first appearance during a march from Latimer Street to Wynn Plaza, the public park at Causeway Drive and Waynick Boulevard that is dedicated to the firefighter. The guard will be led by a Wilmington Police Department bagpiper. While the town’s fire department has always held internal events to recognize the Doak Apartment fire of Dec. 6, 1981, which took the life of volunteer firefighter Lt. Robert Wynn, Wrightsville Beach Fire Chief Glen Rogers said members of the department wanted to find a way to get the community more involved. “We wanted to make it into a memorial day for the people that serve the town,” Rogers said, adding that he believes it

will become an annual event. “Lt. Wynn is our own local fallen hero. He laid down his life protecting the people of the town from fire.” Rogers said the honor guard formed after several members of the department saw similar departments’ guards at a May memorial for fallen firefighters in Raleigh. Members of the honor guard include Capt. Dan Reid, Capt. Matt Holland, Lt. Kenny Turner, a volunteer who also works in the town’s public works department, volunteer Tom Long and intern Tom Hardy. Community members are invited to attend the ceremony, which will include a plaque dedication, wreath presentation and fire service salute followed by a public presentation about the Doak Fire. Retired Fire Chief Everett Ward will give the presentation at South Beach Grill accompanied by complimentary refreshments. The event will end at 6 p.m. At the time of Wynn’s death, Chief Ward served alongside him as a volunteer firefighter before becoming a paid employee in 1984. Ward was involved in the establishment of the plaza, which was dedicated in 1983, by suggesting its current location. Intern Elly Colwell contributed to this story. Email terrylane@luminanews.com

In all cases, the cars that were entered were left unlocked, police chief Dan House said. Owners of cars reported break-ins at four locations, at 6 and 7 Shore Drive, and around the corner at 16 and 25 Shore Drive. The break-ins were reported to police on Wednesday morning and afternoon. Change from one car and a prescription bottle from another were taken, police said. Officers questioned a transient in the area of Coral Drive on Thursday, Nov. 24, but don’t believe he is a suspect, police said.

Wrightsville Beach police served a warrant charging violation of felony probation after the suspect unsuccessfully tried to flee, only to be caught in the marsh around Motts Channel. Police arrested Graham Floyd, 25, of Wilmington after he fled officers following a stop for speeding, police Capt. J. Bishop said. After pulling Floyd over on Seawater Lane at 12:40 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 25 near where the town’s recycling station is located, the suspect fled across Causeway Drive, eventually entering the marsh behind Seacrest Drive, where he was caught by police behind a house “stuck in the mud,” Bishop said. Floyd was also charged with resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia and cited with speeding.

Wrightsville Beach police arrested a 17-year-old juvenile on charges of felony larceny and first-degree burglary after video footage helped police identify the suspect. Police received a report from the Blockade Runner Beach Resort at 4:06 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 26 to report that a juvenile entered rooms at the hotel and stole items, including an iPhone and a wallet. After a guest reported the theft to the front desk, staff checked video from the incident, and got a description of the suspect. One employee saw the suspect and followed him, Wrightsville Beach police said, and police located him approximately 15 minutes later, near 202 North Lumina Ave. Police can’t reveal the identity of juvenile suspects.

Editorial/Opinion Our thoughts By Simon Gonzalez

America is the most advanced country on the planet. We have smart houses, smart phones, apps to make life easier and more convenient, entertainment and communication at our fingertips. You would think with our amazing technology we could devise a foolproof system for choosing our leaders. But instead, here it is three weeks after the election and races at the county, state and national levels are in question. Donald Trump is making cabinet appointments. Roy Cooper is preparing to move into the governor’s mansion. The newly elected New Hanover County Board of Commissioners is ready to be seated. Not so fast. The results are in question because of conspiracy theories that could come straight from the plot of a spy novel. Russian hackers influencing an election. Mysterious ballots suddenly appearing to affect the balance of power. Shadowy third-party groups and nefarious folks skulking around at the dead of night. The seating of the new commissioners is on hold until the Board of Elections rules on protests filed by John Christian Anderson. Pat McCrory won’t move out of the people’s house in Raleigh until every possible recount scenario has been exhausted — especially the viability of those mysterious 90,000 ballots in Durham County. And Trump … well, he’s ignoring the ridiculous recounts demanded by Green Party candidate Jill Stein and proceeding with picking his administration. A recount in the county commissioners race already was scheduled because of the slim margins in the results. Less than 500 votes separate second and fifth in the race for three seats. The margin between third-place finisher Patricia Kusek and Julia Boseman in fourth was just 364 votes, prompting Boseman to request the recount. Anderson’s protests add another layer of intrigue. This is not his first-time foray into election protests. He delayed the seating of the commissioners two years ago, when he questioned the validity of ballots cast at the Williston Middle School precinct. This time, he is alleging tampering based on claims that he personally witnessed someone

entering an early voting site between the hours of 1– 3 a.m. on multiple nights. He also included an allegation of voter fraud, citing a “scheme to operate an absentee ballot mill.” Anderson wants to personally inspect ballots for instances of fraud and invalidate any such ballots. If there is extensive fraud, his protest application includes a request for a new election. The Board of Elections is expected to discuss the protests during its meeting Thursday morning. A recount was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but is on hold so it can be held in conjunction with a statewide recount. Cooper’s lead in the gubernatorial race is about 9,800 votes, barely within the 10,000-vote threshold that would entitle McCrory to ask for a statewide recount. The Republicans would rather focus on one county than the entire state, though. They are questioning the validity of the 90,000 votes in Durham that were added to the statewide results about 11:30 p.m. on election night and swung the lead from McCrory to Cooper. North Carolina Republicans claim they were tabulated by faulty machines, and want them recounted by hand. Machines are at the heart of Stein’s selective recount efforts. She wants recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania — states Trump narrowly won — based on the dubious theory that election machines were hacked, even though Michigan is a paper and optical scan state, with nothing connected to the Internet.  Stein claims to be merely concerned with the integrity of the election, but is seemingly unconcerned with said integrity in states narrowly won by Hillary Clinton. She is proceeding even though members of her party have distanced themselves from her efforts. Her running mate, Ajamu Baraka, said the Green Party shouldn’t be seen as “carrying the water for the Democrats.” So why is Stein — who barely received 1 percent of the nationwide vote — asking for recounts? Surely not for the attention she has garnered and the money she has raised, commodities in very short supply during her presidential bid. Of course, that’s just a conspiracy theory. But in this post-election silly season, it fits right in.

The results are in question because of conspiracy theories that could come straight from the plot of a spy novel.

Hook, Line & Sinker Late season fishing keeping anglers busy By Skylar Walters

The fishing for the month of November has been decent considering the time of year. Offshore, inshore surf and near shore have all been producing for those anglers reluctant to hang up the fishing gear for the yearww. Water temperatures are reading in the lower 60s and they could hover in that region for the coming weeks, or maybe even remain into the new year. After the influx of family, turkey and overeating, anglers needed an out and they got just that with a weather break the day after Thanksgiving. Those traveling offshore found a good bite from wahoo in the areas of the Same Ole and Devils Hole with reports of some fish weighing in the upper 70s being boated, although most fish were in the 20- to 40-pound range. Anglers also reported some dolphin and billfish being encountered in the blue water. Closer inshore, the bottom fishing has been good in the 20-mile range for gag grouper, snapper and black bass. Some anglers are reporting infestations with sharks but most move a mile or two further out and can get out of them. The king mackerel fishing has been good in the 10- to 15-mile range but as water conditions continue to cool, the 10-mile range may be a thing of the past. Slow trolled cigar minnows or even fast

trolled spoons have both worked. Surf anglers are finding good bites of large Virginia mullet on fresh shrimp in the deeper holes and sloughs along the beach. High tide falling seems to be best as the fish develop lockjaw on just about any other tide. Some bluefish, red drum and even a few flounder have been caught by those using cut bait. Inshore, the speckled trout fishing remains relatively good but anglers are starting to have to put in some work to get their limit. Some small fish have also started to show up in local waters, adding to the work. Larger fish have been reported in the inlets and a few in the surf and that trend will continue as waters cool. With that said, there are still plenty of fish being found in the creeks and channels, they’re just not as plentiful as in weeks past. One fish that has been plentiful, however, is the red drum and while a lot of the fish are small, anglers are finding schooled-up fish around the area docks as well as the creeks. Remember though, that these fish have to recover, so pounding a school of fish for hours or even days does much more harm than good. Catch a few and move on to new territory if you’re so inclined. The fish will thank you for it.

PILATE VIOLATES THE TRUTH December 01 Matthew 27:17 “Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, ‘Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ’”? MATTHEW 27:17 Although Pilate knew that Jesus was innocent, he looked for some diplomatic way to release Jesus that would not cause him to lose popularity with the Jewish leaders. This is why he sent Jesus to Herod. He hoped that Herod would pass judgment on Jesus and save him the trouble. When that scheme failed, Pilate drew on an old custom of releasing a prisoner to the people at the feast. He gave them a choice between Jesus, who he knew was innocent, and Barabbas, who was a murderer. Pilate thought that the crowd would certainly choose Jesus. However, through the insistence of the chief priests and scribes, the people chose Barabbas to be released. Pilate was now out of ideas as to how to let Jesus go, and still save face with the Jews, so he condemned Jesus to death. Pilate violated what he knew to be true in his heart because of a fear of men (Prov. 29:25) and what he thought they might do to him. Without the chief priests’ cooperation, he ran the risk of unrest among the Jews, and possible punishment by Caesar for failing to govern well. As it turned out, Pilate was deposed anyway, just a few years later by Tiberius Caesar, and died in exile in Gaul in A.D. 41. At the most, Pilate gained a five-year extension of his troubled rule, and damned his soul in the process. What a person compromises to keep, he’ll lose. Sin is never worth the price.
