Granite Falls, North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein Takes E-Cigarette Maker JUUL to Court RALEIGH, NC (May 15, 2019) -- Attorney General Josh Stein today filed a lawsuit against JUUL for designing, marketing, and selling its e-cigarettes to attract young people and for misrepresenting the potency and danger of nicotine in its products in violation of North Carolina’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. North Carolina is the first state to take legal action against JUUL. JUUL targeted teens and misrepresented nicotine potency… “JUUL targeted young people as customers. As a result, vaping has become an epidemic among minors,” said Attorney General Josh Stein. “JUUL's business practices are not only reckless, they're illegal. And I intend to put a stop to them. We cannot allow another generation of young people to become addicted to nicotine.” JUUL, which has 75 percent of the overall e-cigarette market, has claimed that its products are intended only for adult smokers – but use of JUUL is now rampant and growing among middle and high school students. In 2017, nearly 17 percent of all North Carolina high school students reported using an e-cigarette within the past 30 days. Within the last year, use of e-cigarettes increased among high schoolers nationally by 78 percent and among by middle-schoolers by 48 percent. As described in the complaint, JUUL deliberately designed flavors, the product, and its chemical composition to appeal to young people. The company marketed its products to youth on social media platforms and through the use of youth-oriented sponsors and social media influencers. JUUL used lax age verification techniques for online purchases that allowed purchasers to avoid or circumvent age requirements. JUUL also routinely understated the strength of nicotine in its products and downplayed their health risks. The potency of a typical JUUL pod is so strong and addictive that it is nearly three times the permissible concentration allowed for sale in a number of countries for people of all ages. Each refillable flavored JUUL insert contains nicotine and other toxic chemicals including formaldehyde, arsenic, and acetone. The health risks of nicotine exposure and vaping include dramatic changes in the brain, lung inflammation, COPD, respiratory disorders, addiction, long-term behavioral changes, and an increased likelihood of future drug misuse. Attorney General Stein is requesting the court to require JUUL to cease selling e-cigarettes to minors in North Carolina, limit the flavors sold in the state, stop advertising and marketing practices that are intended to or likely to appeal to minors, and delete all customer data for customers whom JUUL cannot confirm are at least 18. Attorney General Stein is also requesting civil penalties, disgorgement of JUUL’s profits from its unfair and deceptive practices to the state, and other fees and costs. Attorney General Stein launched an investigation into JUUL last fall.

Third-party websites are popping up online that ask consumers to share personal information or pay fees to process vehicle, driver license, and license plate renewals and registrations. These websites will often show up if you search for common DMV services online, and they’ll often appear before the official DMV website in a list of search results. These are not State-operated websites. These websites assist you in renewing a license plate or driver license or completing any of the other above services through a third party, but they will include an unnecessary fee at the end of the process. Additionally, the information shared during driver services is often personal data that should be stored securely. There’s no way to confirm that these websites are keeping your information confidential.

You can read more about them on their website: https:// www.folkkeepergallery.com.
Theresa Gloster is a ‘memory artist,’ a self-taught painter whose works exuberantly chronicle her childhood years in the small African American community of Bushtown in Lenoir, NC. Quoting an article by Glenn Hinson, Ph.D. (Professor, Public Folklore, Art of Ethnography at UNC Chapel Hill): As she paints, she finds herself caught up in reveries of memory, with sharply remembered moments from her past vying for expression. “There’s so much in my mind, that—it’s like, you’re trying just to get it out,” she says. When she chooses which moment to portray, she finds herself stepping into that moment, inhabiting it with an intensity that never fails to surprise her. “It’s like, you can paint the whole picture in a few minutes,” she muses. “But then you say, ‘Now, I’m going to enjoy this picture. I’m going to go back in it.’ And then I’m going to take my time, and just work on it. . . . Because in your mind—you feel like your mind is going in there. And the only way that you can connect, is with the paintbrush, and your mind. So, you feel like you’re going into that painting.” The Caldwell Arts Council presents the arts in all its forms to Caldwell County. Located at 601 College Avenue in Lenoir, the Caldwell Arts Council is open Tuesday -Friday 9am-5pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm, free to the public. Phone 828-754-2486; Website www.caldwellarts.com.

City of Hickory to construct Old Lenoir Road multiuse trail HICKORY, NC (May 8, 2019) -- Old Lenoir Road is about to get a makeover, thanks to an $8.48 million grant from the Greater Hickory Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). At its May 7 meeting, Hickory City Council unanimously approved an agreement with the NCDOT to receive the federal funds to construct a multiuse trail and make streetscape improvements along Old Lenoir Road. The Old Lenoir Road multiuse trail is part of a much larger multiuse path system being developed by the City of Hickory under the Crafting Hickory initiative and $40 million bond referendum passed by Hickory voters. The Old Lenoir Road multiuse trail will create a connection between City Walk, via the Ninth Street NW and 11th Street NW connectors, and Riverwalk. Other Hickory bond projects make great strides City Walk The final component of the City Walk project was put out for bid on May 2. The City Walk multiuse path will run along Main Avenue, starting at Seventh Avenue NE (in front of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church) and traveling through Downtown Hickory to Ninth Street NW (in front of Deluxe Printing Group and Aiken-Black Tire Service). In December 2018, the City started relocating utilities and waterlines in preparation for the main City Walk pathway. These relocations and infrastructure improvements along Main Avenue NW/NE have been completed. Renovations to Union Square and the downtown block, a planned component of the City Walk project, started on April 8 and are currently progressing on schedule. To celebrate the project and its progress, the Hickory Downtown Development Association, in partnership with the City of Hickory, Hickory Soup Kitchen, Olde Hickory Brewery, and the Hickory Crawdads will present the City Walk Summer Celebration in Downtown Hickory on Saturday, June 1, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. The free community event will feature live music, barbecue, a beer garden, bourbon tasting with local distilleries, Fast Pitch with the Hickory Crawdads, and a local celebrity emcee. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Hickory Soup Kitchen and Hickory Downtown Development Association. Book Walk The Book Walk Schematic Plans and Route were approved by a small stakeholder group, the Bond Commission, and then by Hickory City Council as the final approval in April. First identified as a project in the City’s Inspiring Spaces Plan, the Book Walk will be a multi-use pathway providing pedestrian and bicycle connectivity from the City Walk in Downtown Hickory, through the Ridgeview community, to U.S. 70. The path will travel from the City Walk down South Center Street, west across City-owned property at the historic Ridgeview Library, and south on First Street SW to the current Ridgeview Branch Library. The path will then go west on Seventh Avenue SW past the current Ridgeview Branch Library and Ridgeview Recreation Center, before turning south and following Fourth Street SW to U.S. 70 at the WalMart Neighborhood Market. The addition of the Book Walk brings the total miles of the trail system from 5.2 miles, up to 6.4 miles. The City expects all major bond projects to be under construction by the end of 2020.

HICKORY, NC (May 8, 2019) -- The 2019 Sails Original Music Series returns to Downtown Hickory this Saturday, May 11, with an exciting new twist.

Burdett hails from Saluda, North Carolina and is an award-winning Americana singer-songwriter. Sails Music Series Coordinator Bob Sinclair says, “Aaron Burdett Band has a sound I would describe as ‘new Carolina country.’ He’s got a really expressive and comfortable voice, and writes great songs that echo the life in a small town. Aaron is doing real well and has been hailed as one of the most influential musicians of North Carolina alongside notables such as Doc Watson and Rhiannon Giddens.”
At 5 p.m., soulful songwriter and skilled guitarist Miss Tess will take the stage. Accompanied by her band The Talkbacks, Miss Tess will bring a swinging dose of vintage blues, country, jazz, and good time rock n' roll. Sinclair said, “Her style of rockabilly is really catching on and Tess does it better than most. She’s on a tour of multiple southern states and we are lucky enough to bring her to the Sails for this event.” The evening will conclude with Randall Bramblett at 7:30 p.m. Multi-instrumentalist Randall Bramblett is southern rock royalty, known for playing among legends like Bonnie Raitt, The Allman Brothers Band, Steve Winwood, Gov’t Mule, Widespread Panic, and others.

Attorney General Josh Stein Urges FCC to Take Action Against Robocalls and Spoofing RALEIGH, NC (May 7, 2019) - Attorney General Josh Stein urged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to adopt proposed rules on enforcement against caller ID spoofing on calls originating overseas and spoofing using alternative voice and text messaging services. “Scammers use robocalls and spoofing techniques to steal money from hard-working consumers,” said Attorney General Josh Stein. “I urge the FCC to adopt these protections that will help combat these annoying and harmful calls.” A coalition of 42 attorneys general, including Attorney General Stein, submitted comments on Monday calling on the FCC to adopt the proposed rules. The rules are included in the FCC appropriations authorization bill, also known as the RAY BAUM’s Act of 2018. An estimated 47.8 billion robocalls were made in the U.S in 2018, more than a 50 percent increase since 2017. In March, Attorney General Stein co-led a coalition of 54 attorneys general urging the U.S. Senate to enact the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act to enable states, federal regulators, and telecom providers to act to combat illegal robocalls. Attorney General Stein is also leading a bipartisan group of 39 attorneys general to focus on the technology major telecom companies are pursuing to reduce robocalls. Attorney General Stein is joined in sending these comments by the Attorneys General of Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.
Measles Precautions Urged by North Carolina Health Officials RALEIGH, NC (May 9, 2019) -- With multiple measles outbreaks occurring in the United States, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is encouraging preventive measures and reminding everyone that vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against measles. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that 764 people from 23 states were confirmed to have measles from Jan. 1 to May 3, 2019. No cases of measles have been identified in North Carolina in 2019, however, outbreaks have recently been reported in Georgia and Tennessee. "Measles is a highly contagious disease and it spreads quickly in children and adults who are not vaccinated," said State Health Director and DHHS Chief Medical Officer Elizabeth Tilson, M.D. "All North Carolinians should ensure they and their families are up-to-date on their MMR vaccine.” Measles can be prevented by the combination MMR vaccine, which protects against measles, mumps and rubella. Public health experts recommend all children receive two doses of MMR vaccine, with the first dose beginning at 12 months of age and a booster at four to six years of age. Adults born in 1957 or later who have not already been vaccinated should get at least one dose of MMR vaccine. Certain adults should get two doses, including college students, healthcare workers and people who travel internationally. A second or “booster” dose is not routinely recommended for other adults who have received at least one dose of a measles vaccine. The Division of Public Health on Tuesday sent a memo to clinicians across North Carolina with recommendations to rapidly identify measles cases and control the spread of infection. "Vaccines are one of the most important public health successes in protecting the health of our people and preventing disease and death, especially among our most vulnerable community members," said Dr. Tilson. "The science is very clear; the MMR vaccine is highly effective, safe and readily available. We hope these preventable outbreaks will encourage everyone who has not been vaccinated to contact their primary health care provider or local health department." Measles is a respiratory disease that is spread through the air by coughing and sneezing. It also can be transmitted through contact with secretions from the nose or mouth of an infected person. Initial symptoms may include fever, runny nose, watery red eyes and cough, and it is followed by a rash that can spread over the entire body. Measles can also lead to pneumonia and other complications, especially in young children. The disease also poses serious risks for pregnant women, including miscarriage and premature birth. In 2018, North Carolina reported three cases of measles. One case occurred in an unvaccinated traveler who became ill after returning from overseas, and the disease spread to other members of the household. The last large measles outbreak in North Carolina occurred in 2013, when 23 cases occurred after an unvaccinated traveler returned from India to a community with a low vaccination rate. To find where you can receive a vaccine, visit https://vaccinefinder.org. More information about measles is available at http://epi.publichealth.nc.gov/cd/diseases/rubeola.html.
