ICYMI July 24-30: Who’s trashing Freeman Park, Million-square-foot development, sharks, meteors 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:

  • Carolina Beach is struggling to deal with trash in Freeman Park, but the debate took a heated turn when it came to who is trashing the north end beach.

  • There has been a series of developments planned in recent weeks, but this one – located at the busy intersection of Military Cutoff and Eastwood roads, dwarfs them all at a million-square feet.

  • Hilton the great white shark made an appearance for “Shark Week.” Note: unlike Michael Phelps, the researchers tracking great whites off the Carolina coast have actually come face to face with the impressive and misunderstood sharks.

  • It’s one of the most impressive displays of the year, with nearly a meteor every minute at its peak intensity. Here’s some tips on how to catch it.

  • Lastly, we tracked down this secluded Rocky Point house; it is located on the Northeast Cape Fear River, but seems like its thousands of miles away in a hidden jungle grotto.
