  Summer camps are beginning to open around the Cape Fear Region -- and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say there’s a lower risk of catching the virus outdoors and no evidence that COVID-19 can spread through pools. WHQR visited some of our local camps -- and reports how they’re operating during the pandemic.

World tennis champion Althea Gibson gave Lenny Simpson his first tennis racket.   She's called one of the greatest tennis players who ever lived by the coach of Venus and Serena Williams.  She's the woman who broke the international tennis color barrier, and who now has a monument outside Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.
