    If we expect to create a prosperous future fueled by low-cost, clean energy, it’s time to recalibrate the way we think about renewables. That requires us to move beyond the once cutting-edge view that solar power is a key ingredient in lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Ironically, a frequent target of environmentalists, Duke Energy, is showing us that’s not the case. In fact, Duke documents show the negative impact of deploying solar power on the electric grid.

    High school cheerleaders on probation for posing with pro-Trump banner A high school cheerleading squad in North Carolina was put on probation Monday for posing with a pro-President Trump banner at a football game. Members of the North Stanly High School squad posed for photos with the “Trump 2020: Make America Great Again” flag at an Aug. 30 game on “American Night” — in which students were encouraged to dress patriotically, the Stanly News & Press reported. One photo — depicting seven girls in red, white and blue cheer uniforms and two boys in red “MAGA” caps with the banner...

    Portsmouth Island is an 18 mile stretch of undeveloped barrier island south of Ocracocke. There is a private ferry that carries 4x4 vehicles over to a primitive fish camp. Most people fish and camp along the beach. All 18 miles were driveable. The link shows before and after views of the storm damage. Dozens of new inlets were created. It's a sad day for those of us who loved camping and fishing the entire island. Those days are gone for the foreseeable future. Link to photos

    **SNIP** When the vote to overturn Cooper’s veto was brought up Wednesday morning, Democratic state Reps. Deb Butler and Mary Belk - some of the few Democrats on the House floor - voiced objection. Butler accused Republicans of “trickery” and hijacking the democratic process. “This is a travesty of the process and you know it,” Rep. Deb Butler said as the voting got underway. She shouted several times, “We will not yield.” “Our leadership is not present. This is improper,” Butler said, adding later, “There’s no one here, because we have been deceived.”

    NY Post ^ | September 9, 2019 | 9:56pm | Bob Fredericks
    President Trump traveled to North Carolina Monday to show support for the Republican in a special election for a House seat that’s viewed as a toss-up. “North Carolina, vote for Dan Bishop tomorrow. We need him badly in Washington! His opponent is a far left Sanctuary Cities supporter,” Trump tweeted about the GOP candidate, who will face Democrat Dan McCready at the polls Tuesday. Bishop, 55, a state senator since 2017, is a conservative and critic of LGBTQ rights who once compared gay rights activists to the Taliban, and spearheaded North Carolina’s so-called “bathroom bill,” which banned transgender people from...

    President Trump's 2020 campaign has shifted the location for a rally in North Carolina on Monday from the Fayettesville Regional Airport to the city's Crown Expo Center. Campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany announced the change on Twitter on Friday, as North Carolina was being battered by Hurricane Dorian. A Trump campaign official told The Hill that logistical problems with flight times at the Fayettesville hangar had prompted the change. The "Keep America Great" rally will take place a day before a special House election, and the Republican candidate, state Sen. Dan Bishop, will be joining Trump on stage.

    President Trump on Thursday evening tweeted a forthcoming rally in North Carolina in support of Republican congressional candidate Dan Bishop. Trump did not specify the date of his appearance, but without naming Bishop’s Democratic opponent Dan McCready, accused McCready of “lik[ing] the ‘Squad’ more than North Carolina,” in reference to four progressive freshman members of Congress Trump has repeatedly attacked in recent months. At Trump’s most recent North Carolina rally, controversy erupted after the crowd began chanting “Send her back” in reference to one of the four, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a Somali refugee. Trump has since said he did...

Richard Lewis of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. “They had enough explosives over there to blow Dudley off the map,” said Linda Jones. After raiding a Dudley trailer, deputies arrested Corey Bernard Manuel and Monica Lynn Hunt on felony charges of manufacturing and possessing a weapon of...

    While the US was officially neutral, Germany couldn’t openly attack the ships leaving East Coast ports with these supplies. That changed in December 1941, when Germany and Japan declared war on the United States. One month later, the U-boats arrived on the East Coast and started targeting ships right off Ocracoke. “On the North Carolina coast, you have its Diamond Shoals, sandbars that ships want to avoid,” said Dr Frank Blazich, lead curator of military history for the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. “Ships would be hugging the coast and then shooting out to avoid the shoals, which made...

    FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — More than two dozen people were arrested last week in connection with a $12 million cigarette smuggling operation based in Fayetteville, authorities said Monday. U.S. Attorney Robert Higdon said Justin Brent Freeman and his wholesale business, FreeCo Inc., at 231 Williams St., served as a hub for the illegal operation. People would pay cash for large quantities of cigarettes at FreeCo and other retailers in North Carolina, including Sam's Club stores in Raleigh, Fayetteville and Goldsboro, and would then pack the cigarettes into rental cars for shipment to Virginia, Higdon said. In Richmond or Alexandria, Va., the...

    President Donald Trump will head to Greenville, North Carolina, for a campaign rally on Wednesday, returning to the purple state that he won by a narrow 3% over Hillary Clinton, according to CNN’s 2016 election results. It will be Trump’s first rally since he officially kicked off his reelection campaign last month in Orlando, Florida, where he delivered a wide-ranging, lengthy speech echoing many similar themes and grievances of his 2016 campaign, including attacks on Clinton. The trip to Greenville was initially expected to coincide with special counsel Robert Mueller’s long-awaited testimony before the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees....
