ICYMI July 10-16: Military Cutoff development, millennials, Sunday brunch and more

Headlines come and go faster than ever. Check out the stories people were talking about in this week's 'In Case You Missed It.'

A news story isn’t finished after it gets reported – often, that’s just the beginning of the conversation.

Here are five stories from this week that got people talking:

  • While covering a city meeting on “The Avenue,” a proposed 500-apartment project on Military Cutoff, we watched public concern over the project boil over into anger.

  • We met a young woman who knows “following your dreams” in more than a cutesy catch-phrase. She defended “millennials,” and talked about the future of employment for Wilmington’s growing population of young adults.

  • Carolina Beach became the latest municipality to authorize a new law allowing alcohol sales at 10 a.m. on Sundays — but not before the mayor sounded off on exactly how he felt about the age-old blue law.

  • We told the story of a young man’s life, the addiction that killed him, and the things that might have saved him. What lessons can we learn from this tragedy?

  • There’s been some serious issues in the news lately and so it’s understandable to find people daydreaming about pulling up anchor and sailing away. We met a family that has done just that.
