Sunrise in the Sandhills Good morning -- it's Thursday May 24, 2018 -- and it's National Asparagus Day. Oh boy. Now, here's your Sunrise News from WIOZ:

The Moore County Courthouse was evacuated Wednesday morning after a bomb threat was phoned in. AberdeenTimes-dot-com reports the call came at about 9:30, from an unknown person. A specialized bomb squad from Cumberland County was brought in to assist local officials in searching the courthouse... a search which came up empty. The area around the courthouse was re-opened just before noon. An investigation has begun.

Frank Theatres Sandhills Cinema 10 on Brucewood Road has been closed by the Southern Pines Fire Department because of what are said to be unsafe conditions. AberdeenTimes-dot-com reports that the Fire Department has been working with theater management for a few months to see that safety problems were corrected. But after another failed inspection the cinemas were closed on Wednesday morning until further notice.

Pinecrest High School Principal Bob Christina is retiring. SandhillsSentinel-dot-com reports that Christina sent an email to parents announcing his retirement effective July 20th. Christina was named principal for the 2015-2016 school year. A search for his replacement will begin immediately.

(AP) - Republicans in the legislature are fast-tracking this year's budget adjustments so quickly they're preventing rank-and-file members from formally offering their own changes. House and Senate GOP leaders have been meeting privately for weeks on adjusting the second year of the two-year government spending plan approved last summer. House Republicans says a yet-to-be released compromise plan will be voted on next week, and no amendments will be allowed.

(AP) - Democratic legislative candidates plan to make school safety a fall campaign issue if Republicans won't consider legislation that includes gun-control provisions backed by the governor. A key House Democrat made the comment during a Wednesday news conference in which several House and Senate Democrats promoted legislation mirroring Governor Roy Cooper's proposals. Legislative Republicans have avoided gun restrictions.

(AP) - Authorities have arrested a man wanted after a chase that led to the death of a North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper in a wreck. The patrol said in a news release that 22--year-old Dakota Kape Whitt of Elkin was arrested early Wednesday. Twenty-four-year-old Trooper Samuel Newton Bullard died in a wreck Monday night during a chase.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is encouraging people to speak with their physicians about hepatitis A and B vaccine, viral hepatitis screenings and treatment options. From 2012 to 2016, newly diagnosed cases of hepatitis B increased by 62 percent and newly diagnosed cases of hepatitis C increased by 200 percent. Untreated hepatitis B and C may result in long-term liver problems, chronic liver disease and elevated risk of liver cancer.

Today: Partly sunny, with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms... High near 84.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 65.

Friday: Partly sunny, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms... High near 85.
