Former inmates launch Wilmington newspaper

    Today is expected to bring the first issue of a newspaper launched by two former inmates in Wilmington. Amir Lyle and Coley Hobson started The Look, which will focus on community issues and successful city residents, the Associated Press and Wilmington News Journal report.
    Lyle, 42, served time for drug charges; and Hobson, 37, served a second-degree murder sentence. The newspaper emphasizes the alternatives to a life of crime.
