Good morning from foggy and spring-like Toronto, Canada. I’m very fortunate to be shielded from the extreme heat wave that’s going on in North Carolina right now. By the time I return on Wednesday, it’s probably going to be baking still. Hopefully, this won’t be a sign of the rest of the summer, which officially starts Saturday with the Summer Solstice.
Meanwhile, please be careful and stay cool with this morning’s set of news:
Creating a home for bees, which are declining in population, in the Triangle.
One place you won’t be staying cool, Pinehurst. Inflatable pools are now illegal and will draw a $50 fine.
This couple in Fayetteville, along with several others in their neighborhood, are dealing with a stormwater runoff project gone wrong.
Today in statewide transportation: The state DOT may make changes to I-26 and state highway 105; Winston-Salem’s Smith Reynolds Airport wants to move its runway, the no-tolls-on-I-77-in-Charlotte-at-all group.
Davie County’s Board of Education also has a law to change it’s council member structure going through the General Assembly and they aren’t pleased with it either.
And finally, Greensboro’s controversial Hobbes/Friendly development is not a done deal yet.
