What You Need to Know About North Carolina for June 15, 2015

What You Need to Know About North Carolina for June 15, 2015

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.

High wage jobs are supposedly driving Asheville’s growth, while this columnist questions if Asheville has jumped the shark.

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.
