Elon Poll iconKeep spreading the word about early voting!  The Elon Poll came out this morning and here’s a few fun facts!

Hagan holds a steady lead over Tillis with Election Day just days away.

Hagan has solidified a 45-41 margin against Rep. Thom Tillis, the speaker of NC House, since the Elon University Poll found the same numbers in early September. Another 6 percent of likely voters plan to support another candidate, while 7 percent remain undecided.

Locally, support for North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is eroding among likely voters. 37% of likely voters approve of his job performance, down 6 percentage points since last month. 15% didn’t know how they felt about the governor.

EUE/Screen Gems getting Mini-Facelift this Weekend.

ScreenGemsletters

Okay, after a couple of concerned texts and a panicked phone call, I feel I need to share this tidbit.  If you have noticed (pictured above) EUE/Screen Gems will be doing some painting above the wardrobe building, which is where you normally see those big bold letters at the entrance:  EUE/SCREEN GEMS STUDIOS.

They are not selling the place, they are not closing!  For cryin’ out loud!  Please squash the rumors. Now with that being said, due to the little mini-facelift, tours will NOT be rolling this weekend.  Feel better? Good!

EUE/Screen Gems is the heart of Wilmington film and it is here to stay!

Wilmywood: 9th Spookiest cemetery in the USA thanks to Sleepy Hollow

SpookiestBellevue

Thanks to our Fox show, Wilmywood is getting more recognition.  Last week, we found out that Wilmington was deemed Best American Riverfront thanks to your vote in USA Today.  Now Fox News has put out the top 10 list of Spookiest Cemeteries in the US.

Wilmington’s Bellevue Cemetery comes in at #9.  Fox News describes the place as a favorite spot for filming, Sleepy Hollow.

“It may be a serene resting place during daylight, but add a little Hollywood fog and moonlight and it becomes a setting worthy of the headless horseman.”

Kudos to Star News photographer Matt Born for his photo being used in the article!

The St. James Parish cemetery in WIlmington also made the list, coming in at #10. It’s one of the oldest in town and was noted for “the grave of a man who was buried alive and lost all of his fingertips trying to scratch his way out.”
