Snow isn’t over yet BY PAM HAYNES ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT – Snow has taken a liking to the Triad this year. The half-inch of snow mixed with rain that fell Wednesday added to an already above-average snowfall for the area. According to the National Weather Service, the Triad has seen about 13.6 inches of snowfall this year, almost seven inches more than a normal winter. The good news about Wednesday’s snow is that most of it melted before much damage was done,
said Brandon Locklear, meteorologist with NWS. “We’re coming out of weather that was sunny and in the mid-60s last weekend, so pavement and concrete have been able to absorb some of that heat,” he said. “It’s almost like the perfect snow that you can just sit and watch without much worry. But (Thursday) morning may be a little tricky getting to work.” Locklear said temperatures will drop to the mid-20s this morning, allowing for any leftover precipitation from Wednesday to freeze on the roads, causing patches of black ice.
Chris Thompson, High Point’s public services director, said city crews aren’t salting roads since only one to two inches were expected Wednesday. He said crews were up early this morning salting bridges before rush hour in case patches of black ice had occurred. Today’s forecast calls for wind gusts up to 30 mph, with temperatures struggling to get out of the lower 30s. Colder conditions are expected to linger throughout the weekend and into next week with highs reaching the low 40s, Locklear
said, noting that the Triad is still below its average February temperatures that are usually in the mid-50s. And it looks like next week could bring another snowstorm worth worrying about, he said. “Several of our weather models are showing a snowstorm that affects the deep South next week,” he said. “Many things could change until then, so for now we’re just watching it. It does look like the next week will be plenty cold enough (for the storm.)” email@example.com | 888-3617

Board to consider naming gym for Raybon BY DAVID NIVENS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
GUILFORD COUNTY – School district officials will consider a request tonight to name the auxiliary gymnasium at Ragsdale High School for retired veteran coach Mike Raybon. Raybon, 68, spent 43 years with Guilford County Schools, 34 of them at Ragsdale where he became one of the state’s most influential figures in high school wrestling. School officials and Tiger fans surprised Raybon with the nomination earlier in the school year during a celebration of the school’s 50th anniversary. The nomination letter from the school booster club credits Raybon with “walking the extra mile, be it for school, community or state needs.” “His greatest skill is to encourage others to be the best they can be and to offer the support that helps them to do that. He has demonstrated this through his coaching, his mentoring of countless coaches, teachers, and athletic directors, and his leadership in the community,” according to the letter. Raybon was one of the leaders who consolidated the State Wrestling Tournament to one site with competitions in each classification, making the tournament one of the largest in the Southeast. The school board also will hear an update on staff improvement plans for 10 low-

Davidson County to conduct jail study BY DARRICK IGNASIAK ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
DAVIDSON COUNTY – Davidson County officials will hire an architect to take a closer look to see if the county’s current jail and courthouse complex has more room to expand, despite opposition from Sheriff David Grice. This week, the Davidson County Board of Commissioners approved a contract for Charlotte-
based Ware Bonsall Architects to perform a master plan for the existing courthouse and jail site in downtown Lexington. The master plan, which will cost the county $57,376, will determine the feasibility of accommodating the projected needs of the court, sheriff’s office and jail, along with required parking on or adjacent to the existing courthouse and jail site in downtown Lexington. Architects also will identify proj-

amongst the jail committee that we need to take a more serious look at the downtown property to see if we can go up, out or what we can do to the jail. That’s why the study is going to be more thorough.” Grice, meanwhile, said he had voiced his opinion several times concerning the topic of moving the sheriff’s office and jail away from its current location. “I don’t think there is enough space,” he said. “I think when you consider the costs for purchasing
property and moving property ... we are still going to end up with a situation where in the future we are not going to have enough room to expand on down the road.” Grice supports the county obtaining “enough land” for a new jail and sheriff’s office, so the county can expand there for “60 years down the road,” he said. Grice said he is “vehemently” opposed to “going up” for a jail because it would be hard to evacuate if there was a fire, among several other reasons. “We
don’t have to build it all at one time,” he said. “We can build what we need, but we’ve got the space to expand.” Davidson County officials had been looking for a new jail because its population had gone well above its capacity of 298 inmates in recent years, with an average jail population of 388 in July 2008. County officials now say that problem doesn’t exist with the jail population averaging around 210 inmates. email@example.com | 888-3657

Turtle advocates sue NC officials over gill net use RALEIGH (AP) â€“ Finding balance between commercial fishermen making a living and imperiled sea turtles protected in North Carolina coastal waters is heading to the federal courts now that a turtle rescue center has sued to require tougher restrictions on the use of popular vertical nets. The issue in the lawsuit filed this week in U.S. District Court in eastern North Carolina surrounds the use of gill nets, used by coastal watermen to catch southern flounder, red drum and black drum. The nets are suspended in the water using weights and buoys. Fish entering
a mesh hole canâ€™t pull out due to their protruding gills. But they can entangle sea turtles, too, and as air breathers they drown if they canâ€™t get away. All five species of sea turtles in North Carolina coastal waters are protected by the U.S. Endangered Species Act. Four are considered endangered and the loggerhead turtle is deemed â€œthreatened,â€? with the possibility of becoming more shielded. The loggerheadâ€™s total population could be less than 20 percent of the 1998 population by 2017, according to the lawsuit. The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center at Top-

sail Island alleges state marine fisheries officials havenâ€™t complied with federal restrictions on gill net permits for shallow waters in the Pamlico Sound where large number of sea turtles have been caught. For example, there havenâ€™t been enough observers on boats in those waters to monitor turtle catches, the lawsuit filed Tuesday said. Fishermen in the permitted waters arenâ€™t selfreporting either when they collect a turtle, said Michelle Nowlin, an attorney for the Duke Environmental Law and Policy Clinic, which is representing the Beasley Center.
