Sunrise in the Sandhills Good morning -- it's Tuesday May 21, 2019 -- and the heat goes on. Listen this morning for Brad Huffines comprehensive forecast on 550 WIOZ. Now here's your Sunrise News... Fayetteville Police are investigating a fatal shooting that took place on Monday morning. Police, responding to a call from a residence on Homeplace Court, found two gunshot victims, one was pronounced dead at the scene, and the other was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. One suspect has been arrested and police are looking for a second. The groundbreaking for the new Southern Pines Elementary School is scheduled for Monday June 3, and the public is invited... the ceremony, in Morganton Park at the end of South Glover Street, is set to take place at 11:00 AM. The school is scheduled to open in August of 2020. (AP) — Honda's jet division is expanding its headquarters in North Carolina. Greensboro-based Honda Aircraft Co. announced Monday it is expanding its global headquarters with an extra 82-thousand square feet for expanded wing assembly and more parts storage for the private jets rolling off the production line. (AP) — A government watchdog agency says administrative mistakes and a lack of expertise caused delays in the state’s distribution of certain federal long-term recovery funds following Hurricane Matthew. The report from the non-partisan Program Evaluation Division also found 3.7 million dollars in unnecessary state spending. The state received a federal block grant of 199 million dollars in December 2016, which was later increased to 237 million. But as of December 2018— over two years after Matthew made landfall — only 1% of it had been spent. Hurricane season begins in two weeks, and with that in mind the state is urging homeowners, renters and business owners to consider purchasing flood insurance now... it takes 30 days from the date of purchase for a National Flood Insurance Program policy to take effect. The average annual cost of an NFIP policy for homeowners is about 700 dollars. There's information on flood insurance available at FloodSmart-dot-gov. (AP) — Raleigh-Durham International Airport is expanding both gates and security lanes as the airport copes with a record-breaking number of passengers. Three budget airlines will join Southwest in Terminal 1 by April of next year. The move by Allegiant, Frontier and Spirit Airlines will free space in Terminal 2. To make room for the new airlines, four unused gates in Terminal 1 will be activated. (AP) — A new law that would give craft beer-makers in the state more time to sell their products on their own without third-party distributors is on its way to Governor Roy Cooper. Monday night, the Senate gave final approval to a measure that represents a compromise between alcohol wholesalers and craft brewers hammered out over years of negotiation and litigation. The bipartisan bill would allow breweries to sell up to 50-thousand barrels of beer annually on their own. The current limit is 25-thousand barrels.
