NEWS BRIEFING

3 rare black coyotes killed during hunt in North Carolina Charlotte Three rare black coyotes were among the nearly 150 coyotes killed during a massive hunting tournament near Charlotte over the weekend. Tournament organizer 704 Outdoors TV says on its web site there were a total of 107 hunters and 149 coyotes killed. The state Wildlife Resources Commission says black coyotes are uncommon. Tournament spokesman John MacPherson says black coyotes are highly sought after by hunters. The state wildlife commission says predatory coyotes were first documented in North Carolina in 1938 and they are increasingly searching for food in urban areas.

RALEIGH — The General Assembly is weighing anew whether changing how liquor sales have been regulated for decades is worth boosting the number of retail outlets selling spirits with what critics call the risks of increased alcohol consumption. The General Assembly’s government watchdog agency released a study Monday advising lawmakers on the implications of ending or shifting the state’s current liquor operations away from government-run stores and wholesale operations. A renewed interest in privatization also comes amid a recent separate state audit scrutinizing costs in a key state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission contract. North Carolina is one of 17 states that directly control the sale and distribution of spirits. About 170 local ABC boards sell liquor at more than 430 stores, which by law can’t stay open past 9 p.m. or on Sunday. The state ABC Commission also runs a state warehouse, where wholesale liquor from distillers is shipped to ABC stores for sale. Beer and wine are sold by licensed conventional retailers. State and local governments take in various alcohol-related tax revenues. Some lawmakers and at least one trade group consider the current system archaic and espouse a more market-based ap-

Eastern NC political champion Jones dies on 76th birthday By Gary D. Robertson North State Journal RALEIGH — Republican U.S. Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr. (R-N.C.), a political maverick and advocate for eastern North Carolina, died Sunday on his 76th birthday. The 3rd District congressman’s office confirmed his death in a statement, saying Jones died in Greenville. His health declining in recent months, Jones entered hospice care in January after breaking his hip. He had been granted a leave of absence from Congress in late 2018 and was sworn in for his last term back home. Jones was a political maverick unafraid to buck his own party. He was one of the first Republicans to reverse direction on the war in Iraq, even as his North Carolina district included the sprawling Marine installation Camp Lejeune. His ultimate opposition to

proach that would treat liquor like other sold alcohol. “North Carolina residents have been saying it for years — they just want to purchase a bottle of liquor at the nearest grocery store like it’s done in most every other state,” the North Carolina Retail Merchants Association said in a release Monday. The statement highlighted a poll showing support for selling liquor like beer and wine. But others consider liquor consumption a health and safety issue that warrants the current government restrictions. They cite figures in the Program Evaluation Division’s report that said North Carolina, among all Southeastern states, collects the most public revenue per gallon of liquor sold and has the second lowest per-capita liquor consumption. “Why would we ever want to be like those other Southeastern states?” asked Rep. Pat Hurley (R-Randolph), a member of the legislative oversight committee hearing the report’s presentation. She’s also worried increased consumption could lead to more impaired-driving charges. The report doesn’t give an opinion on whether to shift from the control system, saying it should be considered by a separate House-Senate study panel. In a divided vote, the oversight committee did back a bill also proposed by the report’s authors with incremental chang-

RALEIGH — As Winston-Salem, UNC Chapel Hill and others debate long-standing Confederate memorials, legislative Democrats believe eliminating a 2015 law would allow more flexibility for local control over these monuments. They point to violence in Charlottesville, Va., and unrest in Chapel Hill over “Silent Sam” as evidence officials need more control over symbols at the center of public discontent. Senate Bill 22, the 2015 law in question, was passed unanimously in the Senate, by both Democrats and Republicans. Upon reaching the House though, S.B. 22 began picking up opposition, with only two votes for and 37

the Iraq War came with the irony that he instigated a symbolic slap against the French when their country early on opposed U.S. military action. Jones was among the House members who led a campaign that resulted in the chamber’s cafeteria offering “freedom fries” and “freedom toast” — instead of French fries and French toast. Jones said he introduced legislation that would have required President George W. Bush’s administration to begin withdrawing troops in 2006 because the reason given for invading Iraq, weapons of mass destruction, had proved false. “If I had known then what I know now, I wouldn’t have supported the resolution” to go to war, Jones said in 2005. Jones took heat for his reversal from GOP colleagues. He ultimately signed well See JONES, page A2

New Oregon Inlet Bridge nears completion NSJ Staff NAGS HEAD — The long-awaited replacement for the 55-year-old Herbert C. Bonner Bridge over Oregon Inlet will welcome vehicle traffic soon. “The list of work left to do is shrinking rapidly,” said NCDOT Division Engineer Jerry Jennings in a statement. “It’s now down to a matter of days.” NCDOT and local officials held an informal celebration of the new

bridge on Feb. 9. Traffic is expected to be shifted in the days following the event. A more formal celebration for the new bridge is tentatively slated for early April. Contractors are currently installing guardrails and expansion joints as well as adding traction grooves to the bridge’s deck, while workers from Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative are finishing work to attach power lines to the new structure. Once all the finish-

ing touches are complete, workers will paint lane markings on the new bridge and traffic will be shifted. After the new bridge is open, crews will begin dismantling the old bridge. Efforts to replace Bonner Bridge began in 1989 with environmental groups filing several lawsuits which resulted in changes to the project and decades of delays. The new $252 million bridge is 2.8 miles long, 90 feet high at its

apex, and is designed for a 100year life span. The new bridge will likely receive a new name. Dare County commissioners voted 3-2 to recommend the bridge be named for former Senate Pro Tem Marc Basnight, a Dare County Democrat and long-serving member of the State Senate. According to local reports, the state Board of Transportation is slated to vote on a name at its upcoming March 6 meeting.

JONES from page A1 over 11,000 letters to the families of dead troops, describing that as a penance of sorts. “For me, it’s a sacred responsibility that I have to communicate my condolences to a family,” Jones said in a 2017 interview with The Associated Press. “And it’s very special to me because it goes back to my regretting that I voted to go into the Iraq War.” Jones, who had served in Congress since 1995, had already announced his 2018 campaign would be his last. His death means Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper will schedule a special election to decide who will complete Jones’ two-year term in the coastal 3rd Congressional District. State law requires the schedule include primary races as well in the GOP-leaning district. No specific dates are mandated in the law for the elections. Jones also was a relentless advocate for campaign finance reform and controlling the national debt. The fiscal and social conservative won unopposed in last November’s general election after fending off Republican primary challengers stoked partly by Jones’ willingness to dissent from the Washington

Democrats unanimously voted for it in the Senate, so they didn’t see it as controversial at the time.” The House lead sponsor, Rep. Pricey Harrison (D-Guilford), said she hopes her bill can gain some bipartisan support, but after the comments from Republican leaders, who say a change is unnecessary, she is “not optimistic” it can be passed without a fight. “I know a lot of North Carolinians see these monuments as reflecting heritage or historical value, and I’m not demonizing them, but we also have to realize that to many others in our state, these monuments represent something deeply offensive, something we need to move beyond,” she told NSJ. “If local governments decide it’s best to remove them, there shouldn’t be obstacles put in their

Paul Lowe (D-Forsyth) filed a Senate companion bill, S.B. 19. In Winston-Salem, in Lowe’s home county, the local government is dealing with its own version of the controversy seen in Charlottesville and Chapel Hill. A Confederate statue displayed at the courthouse has caused debate and occasional vandalism. The city council has voted to have it moved. The issue has become more complex though, since the United Daughters of the Confederacy, not the state of North Carolina, owns the statue, and the UDC has not been able to produce documents proving their ownership. “It’s time to move on,” Lowe told

As chair of the Legislative Black Caucus, I can say our caucus has some strong views on this topic.” When asked if he saw any need to revisit the issue now that Democrats are placing some blame on the law for tying local hands, Davis said, “In the law, there’s an opportunity to follow a process to deal with these issues through the North Carolina Historical Commission, which follows a methodical, deliberate procedure, and that’s a good model. So, I think the present law is serving us well and doesn’t need to be changed.” On Jan. 31, the House bill was assigned to the House State and Local Government Committee, where, if passed, it will be sent to the House Judiciary Committee.

Thom Tillis of North Carolina. Either Jones or his father, Walter Jones Sr., represented eastern North Carolina in Congress for five decades. The elder Jones, a Democrat, represented the region from 1966 until his death in 1992. Walter Jones Jr., then also a Democrat, lost the party primary to succeed him. He became a Republican and was sent to Washington two years later. “Jones’ legacy will undoubtedly be the unequivocal advocacy he put forth for the men and women who serve in this country’s armed forces, and not just those who lived in his district, but across the nation,” said NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes in a statement. “There was no better champion for eastern North Carolina than Walter Jones. My thoughts and

prayers are with his family at this difficult time.” Walter Beamon Jones Jr. was born in Farmville in 1943. He attended Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia during high school and then graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Atlantic Christian College — now known as Barton College — in 1966. He served in the North Carolina state House from 1982 through 1992, where he often clashed with Democratic leaders. He and Cooper were among 20 House Democrats who joined Republicans in toppling state Democratic Speaker Liston Ramsey from power in 1989. In a statement, Cooper on Sunday called Jones a longtime friend and “public servant who was true to his convictions and who will be missed.” Jone is survived by his wife, Joe Anne, and a daughter, Ashley. An obituary released by Farmville Funeral Home said Jones’ body will lie in repose late Wednesday at St. Peter Catholic Church in Greenville, with a funeral to follow at the church Thursday afternoon.

nation & world Trump not ‘thrilled’ with border deal, not saying if he’ll sign By Andrew Taylor and Alan Fram The Associated Press WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump said Tuesday he’s “unhappy” with a Monday agreement to prevent a government shutdown and finance construction of more barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, but he didn’t say whether or not he would sign the measure. GOP congressional leaders swung behind the proposed deal, selling it as a necessary compromise. “I can’t say I’m happy. I can’t say I’m thrilled,” Trump said during a Cabinet meeting. He said he needs to look further at the agreement, which would grant far less than the $5.7 billion he wants for a long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. But one way or another, “the wall’s getting built,” he said, raising the likelihood he’d be “supplementing things” and moving resources from “far less ... important areas” in the government. Trump said he didn’t believe there would be another shutdown, which could have hit hundreds of thousands of federal workers

again this weekend. “Everything” is on the table, he said at the White House, but “we certainly don’t want to see a shutdown.” Lawmakers tentatively agreed Monday night to a deal that would provide nearly $1.4 billion for border barriers, according to congressional aides. The huge funding measure, which combines seven spending bills into one, would run through the fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30. The agreement means 55 miles of new fencing — constructed through existing designs such as metal slats — but less than the 215 miles the White House demanded in December. The fencing would be built in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. The deal closely mirrors Trump’s original budget request from last winter, however. Details might not be released until Wednesday, but the pact came in time to alleviate any threat of a second partial government shutdown this weekend. Top Republicans Mitch McConnell in the Senate and Kevin McCarthy in the House both claimed victory, crowing about Democratic concessions on new border barriers and a late-stage battle over the ability of federal authorities to ar-

rest and detain immigrants living illegally in the U.S. “You’ve got to remember where Nancy Pelosi was. She has said, ‘No money for a wall.’ That’s not the case,” McCarthy said on CNBC Tuesday morning. “The Democrats have now agreed to more than 55 miles of new barrier.” And Trump said in regard to transferring other funds, “We have a lot of money in this country and we’re using some of that money — a small percentage of that money — to build the wall, which we desperately need.” Trump appeared to be referring to a White House plan to supplement the deal by using executive action to divert additional money from the federal budget for wall construction — a move that could face challenges in Congress or the courts. The administration has been laying the groundwork for Trump to declare a national emergency or invoke other executive authority to tap funds including money set aside for military construction and disaster relief. “We’ll take as much money as you can give us, and then we will go off and find the money someplace else — legally — in order to

secure that southern barrier,” acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told Fox News Friday, previewing the strategy. He said more than $5.7 billion had been identified. The compromise contains plenty to anger lawmakers on the right and left — more border fencing than many Democrats would like and too little for conservative Republicans — but its authors praised it as a genuine compromise that would keep the government open and allow everyone to move on. “The specter of another shutdown” brought the two parties’ negotiators back together after talks broke off over the weekend, said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby, R-Ala. The pact also includes increases for new technologies such as advanced screening at border entry points, humanitarian aid sought by Democrats and additional customs officers. This weekend, Shelby pulled the plug on the talks over Democratic demands to limit immigrant detentions by federal authorities, frustrating some of his fellow negotiators, but Democrats yielded ground on that issue in the fresh round of talks on Monday. Asked if Trump would back the deal, Shelby said: “We believe from our dealings with them and the latitude they’ve given us, they will support it. We certainly hope so.” Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity, a Trump ally, said the barri-

er money in the agreement was inadequate, warning late Monday that “any Republican that supports this garbage compromise, you will have to explain.” Conservatives like Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., who has the ear of Trump, also came out in opposition. Trump traveled to El Paso, Texas, for a campaign-style rally Monday night focused on immigration and border issues. He has been adamant that Congress approve money for a wall along the Mexican border, though he no longer repeats his 2016 mantra that Mexico will pay for it. After yielding on border barriers, Democrats focused on reducing funding for detention beds to curb what they see as unnecessarily harsh enforcement by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. The agreement yielded curbed funding, overall, for ICE detention beds, which Democrats promised would mean the agency would hold fewer detainees than the roughly 49,000 on Feb. 10, the most recent date for which figures were available. Democrats said the number of beds would be ratcheted down to 40,520 by year’s end. But a proposal to cap at 16,500 the number of detainees caught in areas away from the border — a limit Democrats say was aimed at preventing overreach by the agency — ran into its own Republican wall. Democrats dropped the demand in the Monday round of talks.

Clamor for ouster of top Democrats slows in Virginia By Alan Suderman and Ben Finley The Associated Press RICHMOND, Va. — The clamor for the resignation of Virginia’s top two politicians seemed to die down Monday, with some black community leaders forgiving Gov. Ralph Northam over the blackface furor and calling for a fair hearing for Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax on the sexual assault allegations against him. Over the past several days, practically the entire Democratic establishment rose up to demand fellow Democrats Northam and Fairfax immediately step down. But the tone changed markedly after the weekend. A Democratic state lawmaker who had threatened to begin impeachment proceedings against Fairfax, Virginia’s highest-ranking black politician, set the idea aside after running into resistance. At the same time, several black clergy and civic leaders made

clear they are willing to give both Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring a second chance, while urging due process for Fairfax. Herring, like Northam, has admitted putting on blackface in the 1980s. As the scandals engulfing Virginia’s top three elected Democrats developed, it became increasingly clear that it could look bad for the party if Fairfax were summarily pushed out and the two white men managed to stay in power. “The sort of irony that makes your head spin is that Herring and Northam are in trouble for behavior related to Virginia’s racial past. And yet it may be the only African-American statewide officeholder who, at the end of the day, gets in trouble,” said Quentin Kidd, a political science professor at Virginia’s Christopher Newport University. “This may get worse and more uncomfortable before it gets better — if it does get better.” If Northam stepped down, Fair-

fax would become Virginia’s second African-American governor in history. If all three Democrats resigned, a Republican could become governor: GOP House Speaker Kirk Cox is next in the line of succession. Late last week, amid widespread calls for Fairfax’s resignation, Democratic Del. Patrick Hope, who is white, announced plans to introduce articles of impeachment against the lieutenant governor on Monday. But Hope relented, citing both reaction from colleagues and online accusations he is a racist. Hours later, a group of eight black clergy and community leaders said during a news conference that they forgive Northam and want to give him a second chance. Former Richmond City Councilman Henry “Chuck” Richardson called Northam a “good and decent man” who has stood with African-Americans on important issues. Separately, a set of black leaders listed steps they said Northam and Herring should take to redeem themselves during their remaining three years in office, including removing Confederate statues and raising more money for Virginia’s historically black colleges. “In our opinion, it is not enough for you to simply apologize,” the black leaders said in a letter. The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus did not withdraw its earlier call for Northam to resign. But its

chairman, Del. Lamont Bagby, signaled willingness to work with the governor on issues of importance to black lawmakers. “My caucus, I can tell you, they’re fired up to get this stuff done,” Bagby said. A recent poll found a majority of black Virginians support Northam remaining in office, with Virginians overall split about evenly on the question of whether he should step down. The poll was conducted last Wednesday through Friday by The Washington Post and George Mason University. Of the three politicians under fire, Herring appeared to be in the least danger of being forced out. Black leaders have said they felt he earnestly apologized. However, in a sign of the difficulties Fairfax will face in staying on the job, four of his staff members have resigned. In interviews published Monday, Fairfax repeated denials of sexual assault allegations by Meredith Watson and Vanessa Tyson. The Associated Press generally does not identify people who say they are victims of sexual crimes, but both women have come forward. Fairfax said he has never sexually assaulted anyone and deserves a chance to defend himself. “Everyone deserves to be heard. ... Even when faced with those allegations, I am still standing up for everyone’s right to be heard,” he told

The Washington Post. Tyson, a California college professor, has accused Fairfax of forcing her to perform oral sex on him at a Boston hotel in 2004. Watson has said Fairfax raped her while they were students at Duke University in 2000. Watson also alleged that she was raped in 1999 by a Duke basketball player. The New York Times reported Monday that the accused player in question was Corey Maggette, who played for one year for the Blue Devils before embarking on a 14-year NBA career. Maggette denied the allegations to The New York Times. In an interview broadcast Monday, Northam provided a fuller explanation of his handling of the crisis, set off Feb. 1 by the discovery of a photo on his 1984 medical school yearbook page of someone in blackface standing next to another person in a Ku Klux Klan hood and robe. Northam initially said he was in the photo, then denied it a day later, while admitting he wore blackface to a dance contest that same year. Northam, 59, told “CBS This Morning” that he mistakenly took responsibility for the picture because he had never seen the image before. Northam, who worked as a pediatric neurologist before entering politics when he was nearly 50, said: “When you’re in a state of shock like I was, we don’t always think as clearly as we should.”

NSJ Staff RALEIGH — Gov. Roy Cooper announced Tuesday that he is elevating current North Carolina Supreme Court Justice Cheri Beasley to be the next chief justice. The Democratic governor announced Tuesday that Beasley is his choice to succeed current Chief Justice Mark Martin, who is resigning at the end of the month to lead a Virginia law school. Beasley has been an associate justice since late 2012. The 52-year-old Beasley is one of the five registered Democrats on the sevenmember court. She previously served as a trial judge and Court of Appeals judge before then-Gov. Beverly Perdue appointed her to the Supreme Court. Beasley’s appointment goes through the end of 2020.

has already announced his intention to seek the chief justice seat in 2020, responded to Cooper’s appointment with a statement. “Sadly today Governor Cooper decided to place raw, partisan politics over a nonpartisan judiciary by rejecting the timetested tradition of naming the Senior Associate Justice as Chief Justice.” Newby noted that only once since 1900 has a Governor dishonored the tradition of appointing the court’s most senior justice to that position. “The governor’s decision further erodes public trust and confidence in a fair judiciary, free from partisan manipulation,” said Newby. “While many talk of removing partisan politics from the courts, the governor’s actions today in using party label to make his selection is a reminder that actions speak louder than words.” The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Volunteers helping with the search reported that Woodrum was found by his brother sleeping underneath a rug near a group of trees. WSOC

Greenville tests ShotSpotter system

Hit-and-run suspect posts on Facebook New Hanover County Police in Wilmington are searching for 22-year-old Courtnay Danielle Lawrence after she allegedly struck another woman with her car and left the scene. Police say she intentionally struck a woman with her car, flipping her into the air. The victim suffered injuries to her head, shoulders, hips and knees. Police were able to identify Lawrence as the suspect after she posted about it, including photos of the damage to her car, on Facebook.

Chatham County Tommy Clark has been permanently banned from operating in North Carolina, but police say he’s ignored the court order and continued to operate a fraudulent paving business in Wake and Chatham counties. Already facing charges in Wake, Clark has now had four felony charges filed against him in Chatham. Clark would go door-to-door offering to repave driveways for a low price, then charge a much higher rate once the work had begun.

Pitt County The city of Greenville scheduled a live-fire gunshot drill on Friday to help test a system to locate the source of gunfire. The test was an evaluation of the ShotSpotter system, which will use acoustic sensors over a wide area to detect when and where a gun has been fired. Police staffed each test location and used a bullet trap to ensure that no bullets fired presented a threat to the public.

Oligarchicide: The far-left attack on wealth

All gifted people who do well make us all better off in the long run by doing what they do well.

AFTER THE PELOPONNESIAN WAR, the Spartans dismantled the Athenian democracy and replaced it with a group of wealthy oligarchs called the Thirty Tyrants. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her colleagues in the current Socialist Democratic Party of America must think our founders replaced a monarchy with oligarchs 230 years ago. In the view of many in the rapidly-drifting-to-the-extreme-far-leftsocialist Democratic Party, our country is run by wealthy people who are “immoral” simply because they have wealth and others do not. They think we would be better off without any wealthy people. “Oligarchicide” it would be called if we got rid of them all. How “immoral” can wealthy people be? • James Buchanan Duke built an international tobacco empire in Durham. Hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians were employed over the past century either in the tobacco-growing industry or in manufacturing centers around the state. The Dukes started Duke Power, now Duke Energy, which is the largest energy company in America today. With his wealth, he and the Duke family endowed Duke University which spawned the internationally acclaimed Duke Medical Center and something called “Krzyzewskiville.” They established the Duke Endowment which funds Davidson College, Furman and Johnson C. Smith University and a myriad charitable organizations across the Carolinas. • John Motley Morehead III studied chemistry at UNC Chapel Hill. He started the Union Carbide Company after figuring out a way to manufacture acetylene gas for industrial use. Not only have tens of thousands of people worked at Union Carbide over the past century, he gave much of his wealth to start the Morehead Foundation at Chapel Hill, endowed the Morehead (now Morehead-Cain) Scholarship program, and built the Morehead Planetarium and various other buildings on campus for everyone to use. Had both Duke and Morehead been George Bailey and been granted a wish to see what life would have been like in North Carolina had they never been born, they would have seen a rural state that would have been far poorer, less educated and unhealthier longer than it was.

Both men had a “gift” for business just as a doctor has a gift to help people get well, a respected judge has a gift of distributing justice fairly or Zion Williamson has the gift of slam-dunking for the Duke Blue Devils. All gifted people who do well make us all better off in the long run by doing what they do well. John Antonio Pascarella, Hayek Visiting Scholar at the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism, calls such a gift for business the “Money-Making Art.” “The Greek word usually translated as ‘business’ is chrēmatistikē (money-making art). The art of chrēmata could be translated as ‘money,’ or ‘property,’ but literally means ‘useful things.’ That would mean the moneymaking art should more properly be understood as ‘the art of useful things.’ This fits the Greek root of the word — chrē — which means ‘use or need.’ That would be the clearest way to understand the natural root of money-making, which for Aristotle is a limited part of what we broadly call ‘economics.’” James B. Duke and John Motley Morehead did not know they would one day be fabulously wealthy as a result of their vision, hard work and determination. No one does. No one would go through all the trials and frustrations of starting and running a business if they thought they would be subject to the heavy-handed coercive force of government under control of socialists such as AOC who would confiscate the fruits of their ingenuity and invention to the tune of 70 percent or more. The extremism of today’s left-wing socialist Democrats should be roundly derided by sound-thinking Democrats, independents and Republicans everywhere. What they want is not American at all in terms of philosophy, practicality or ethos. The confiscatory nature of their proposals would be truly tyrannical in practice.

GUEST OPINION | STACEY MATTHEWS

At what point are people forgiven?

Should one instance of foolish and insensitive behavior define someone’s life forever?

AS POLITICAL SCANDALS GO, the ones playing out right now in Virginia have been absolute spectacles. Gov.Ralph Northam has been in full apologist mode after photos surfaced from a college yearbook allegedly showing him in either blackface or KKK robes. A few days later, Attorney General Mark Herring admitted he once wore blackface as rapper Kurtis Blow at a college party when he was 19. Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax has, in one week, been accused of sexual assault by two different women. Republicans watched as this series of events began to play out. As the condemnations began to roll in, they joined in on the piling on. It’s been easy to do. In Northam’s case in particular, he admitted to being in the offending 1984 photo and apologized. The very next day, he said that it wasn’t him — even as calls for him to resign were coming in from the highest levels of the Democratic Party. He even suggested facial recognition technology might be able to confirm that neither of the people in the photo were him. It’s also been easy to pile on because we’re watching Democrats being hoisted by their own petard. Republicans remember how then-Judge Kavanaugh was treated during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Yearbook photos from decades ago and handwritten comments were supposed to mean something. Quotes from old classmates who said he liked to get drunk were “proof” that Kavanuagh was a serial rapist. Without evidence, he was tried in the court of public opinion and subjected to malicious attempts at character assassination. As a result of these blackface scandals, North Carolina journalists are tweeting photos from 1970s yearbooks that show university students in blackface, KKK outfits, and/or various Confederate clothing. Colleges — particularly in the South — are scouring their old yearbooks in an effort to find similar photos before someone else does. These places are getting ahead of the game by airing their past dirty laundry in an effort to publicly atone and begin the healing. But at what cost to the individuals in the decades-old photos if they are ever identified? What of the lives they’ve made for themselves since? By most accounts, Ralph Northam has led a pretty upstanding life since his time in college. He served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps for eight years. He was a successful pediatric neurologist before jumping into the political arena and eventually getting elected governor of Virginia.

Northam did something stupid. In 1984. He’s probably done other stupid things along the way since then, but hopefully nothing as insensitive and hurtful. He’s not alone. Government offices across the country are filled with elected officials of all stripes who’ve done shameful things early in life that they later regretted. It’s a safe bet the vast majority of them grew up, learned from their mistakes and became better people. At what point when these types of scandals surface do we take into account the sum total of a person’s life and tell them they are forgiven for what they did when they were young and naive? I’m not talking about something that could be considered a criminal offense, of course, but things that were done in extremely poor taste “back in the day” that a person wishes they could take back. Should one instance of foolish and insensitive behavior define someone’s life forever? As we watch the unraveling of the Democratic Party machine in Virginia, GOP feelings of schadenfreude are understandable. Democrats are being forced to abide by the (double) standards that they (and the media) typically only hold Republicans to. On top of that, this all started because Northam unwittingly exposed the radically extreme abortion position of the Democratic Party for the whole country to see. But let’s not let chaos make us forget that forgiveness is a virtue people of various faiths teach their children about. People are flawed and they’re going to make mistakes in life. But they can learn from the mistakes, be forgiven and be better people as they get older. What will our society be like in the future if the young people of today look at scandals like these and see otherwise decent people publicly put through the wringer because they did something regrettable when they were young adults? What incentive will there be for these young people to rise above and be better? “A world with no mercy or grace is an ugly world indeed,” said columnist Ben Shapiro in a recent piece. He’s right. Sadly, we are headed in that direction.

Beware the swamp

There is virtue in standing up and fighting for what’s right — even if you lose.

THE CLARION call of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign was “Drain the swamp.” Trump was met with that refrain at rallies across the country as his supporters chanted those three words relentlessly. Candidate Trump may have drawn his inspiration from President Ronald Reagan who, nearly four decades ago, called for “draining the bureaucratic swamp in Washington.” Unfortunately, today, the swamp is deeper and more powerful than ever. And the American people have less trust in Washington than ever. A dominant characteristic of the swamp is its ability to stop “outsiders” — like President Trump — dead in their tracks. An ongoing example of this is Trump’s fight to appoint conservative judges. The bitter fight over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court saw the opposition hurl the full weight of political correctness against the nomination in what became a highly partisan battle with little regard for truth. We are seeing the same battle over Trump’s nomination of North Carolinian Tom Farr to the Federal District Court bench. Television commentator Brit Hume recently commented, “The term ‘racist’ is one of the worst things you can say about someone, and it has been weaponized and widely used where clearly it does not apply.” Hume warned the media “to stop flinging the term ‘racist’ around indiscriminately.” Farr, an outstanding conservative attorney, was nominated by President Trump in 2017. His nomination appeared to be heading for Senate approval along strictly partisan lines in the fall of 2018 when the Washington Democrats struck back in typical political fashion, branding Farr as a racist based on false claims about his role in Jesse Helms’ 1984 and 1990 Senate re-election campaigns. The sad fact is the Democrats’ diatribe worked. Last fall, after announcing he was going to vote for Farr’s nomination, Republican Sen. Tim Scott about-faced and opposed Farr. In a Senate with 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats, the vote to confirm Farr was canceled. And the swamp won. Republicans now have a larger (53 to 47)

majority in the Senate, but Farr has not been renominated and confirmed. Scott still says no. The question is what will Thom Tillis, who serves on the crucial Senate Judiciary Committee, do? Will Sen. Tillis stand up and fight for Farr’s renomination in the face of Scott’s opposition? Or will insider politics rule the day? The signs have not been encouraging. A month ago, Tillis told the News & Observer (Jan. 9) that “he was still looking into whether he would have Farr, who has long-standing ties to Republicans in the state, renominated.” At the end of January, Tillis told the News & Observer (Jan. 30) “he was still looking into whether Farr had a path to confirmation in the Senate.” That sounded more like a Washington Insider hedging than a senator girding for a fight on principle. My personal knowledge of Farr — and the facts — convince me that he is a competent conservative and should be confirmed. If the swamp is ever to be drained, Republicans are going to have to develop the backbone to push back. Too often “Mugwump” Republicans have retreated back into the Establishment. Washington politicians don’t ask themselves, “What’s the right thing to do?” — then say, “Let’s do it. And forget the politics.” Instead, with their fingers to the political winds, they broker backroom deals. Standing up to smear tactics is right. If Farr is confirmed, it will be a conservative victory over the swamp. There is virtue in standing up and fighting for what’s right — even if you lose. M. Stanton Evans once warned that all too often would-be conservatives “come to Washington to drain the swamp, but they discover instead that the swamp is a hot tub.” Tillis needs to get out of the hot tub and lead the charge for Tom Farr.

The Democrats storm to the left

Democrats are so consumed with rage and hatred for Trump that they will do or say anything to thwart his agenda.

SEE IF YOU CAN GUESS who uttered the following sentences. “Let me elaborate. ... Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple.” “We need to crack down on businesses that hire illegal immigrants” and send illegals “to the back of the line behind the folks trying to come here legally.” “We certainly do not want any more [illegal immigrants] coming in.” If you guessed that such affirmations of enforcing current immigration law came from the so-called racist Donald Trump, you’d be wrong. Those were direct quotes from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in 2009, thenPresident Barack Obama in 2013 and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in 2008, respectively. So what explains Democrats’ current refusal to even consider the common-sense border protections President Trump is proposing? Given that Congress approved the construction of 650 miles of physical barriers on our southern border under the previous three presidents, including more than 130 miles when Obama was president, how is it that Pelosi can call a further extension of the border wall immoral? Two apparent reasons. First, Democrats are so consumed with rage and hatred for Trump that they will do or say anything to thwart his agenda — unwilling even to negotiate and compromise on policy positions that were seen as mainstream within the Democrat Party not too long ago. In all fairness, Republicans behaved similarly in opposing most of the initiatives proposed by President Obama during his eight years in office. The party’s base voters and donors demand such “resistance.” They have literally forced Democrat Party leadership to completely abandon many policies that they may have supported in the past in order to oppose Trump. It’s why Congressional Democrats could not even bring themselves to applaud politely during Trump’s State of the Union address when he praised the return of 600,000 manufacturing jobs to U.S. soil or the lowest unemployment rate ever for AfricanAmericans.

In this Jan 15, 2019 image, a section of newly-replaced border wall separates Tijuana, Mexico from San Diego, seen from San Diego. In their zeal to see Trump defeated in 2020, they cannot possibly give him a single legislative victory to claim — even at the cost of displaying breathtaking hypocrisy. The drive to dump Trump is how the Democrat Party became the party of illegal immigrants, prioritizing their hopes and dreams over actual U.S. citizens. The second is that the Democrat Party responded to the shocking defeat of Hillary Clinton in 2016 by moving decisively to Hillary’s left. The party has forsaken traditional liberalism for radicalism. Many on the left today seek a politics of radical transformation of the institutions of government away from Constitutional principles to embracing central control over ever-larger chunks of the private economy. That’s why we’ve seen Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris propose the abolition of private health insurance; Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren propose a draconian wealth tax, and newly minted House member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez call for transitioning the U.S. economy to 100 percent renewable energy by 2030, in part by “replacing non-essential individual means of transport with high-quality and modern mass transit.” It appears they want to take your car away. The lurch left is unlikely to abate as young, social mediasavvy voters increasingly favor

socialism over capitalism and each presidential hopeful tries to out-do the next in their promises of a socialist utopia. Guaranteed jobs, paid family and medical leave, paid vacations and free college all sound great until you figure out how we’re going to pay for it all. Can Democrats point to any other country where socialism has been successful long-term in improving the majority of its citizens’ lives? Democrats are playing a dangerous game. By embracing policies to eliminate private health insurance and fossil fuels, America’s political center is up for grabs. What if independent and swing voters — even those opposed to Trump — begin to notice the stark choice between a strong economy and lower income taxes versus the loss of their private health insurance (or their car), draconian tax hikes, skyrocketing debt, energy rationing and a loss of liberty. While I often disagree with President Trump on issues and how he behaves, thank goodness for his resolve “that America will never be a socialist country.” If the Democrats intransigence and headlong march left costs them their one shot at beating Trump next year, they’ll only have themselves to blame.

Marijuana, mental illness and violence TEN STATES and Washington, D.C., have legalized the recreational use of marijuana. Twenty-two other states, along with U.S. territories Puerto Rico and Guam, allow marijuana to be used for medical purposes. Let’s examine some hidden issues about marijuana use. Before we start, permit me to state my values about medical or recreational use of any drug. We each own ourselves. If we choose to take chances with substances that can ruin our health, lead to death and otherwise destroy our own lives, that’s our right. But we do not have a right to harm others in the process of harming ourselves. Alex Berenson is a graduate of Yale University, with degrees in history and economics. He delivered a speech last month at Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C., on the hidden dangers of marijuana use. He told his audience, “Almost everything that you think you know about the health effects of cannabis, almost everything that advocates and the media have told you for a generation, is wrong.”

The active ingredient in marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Marijuana is most commonly prescribed for pain, but it’s rarely tested against other pain relief drugs, such as ibuprofen. Last July, a large four-year study of Australian patients with chronic pain showed that cannabis use was associated with greater pain over time. Marijuana, like alcohol, is too weak as a painkiller for people with terminal cancer. They need opiates. Berenson said, “Even cannabis advocates, like Rob Kampia, who co-founded the Marijuana Policy Project ... acknowledge that they have always viewed medical marijuana laws mostly as a way to protect recreational users.” Marijuana legalization advocates sometimes argue that its use reduces opiate use. That is untrue. Berenson said, “The United States and Canada, which are the countries that have the most opioid use, also have by far the worst problem with ... cannabis.” Marijuana carries not only a devastating physical health risk but also mental health dangers. A 2017 National Academy of Medicine study found that “cannabis use is likely to increase the risk of developing schizophrenia and other psychoses; the higher the use, the greater the risk. ... Regular cannabis use is likely to increase the risk for developing social anxiety disorder.” Also, a paper in the American Journal of Psychiatry last year showed that people who used cannabis in 2001 were almost three times as likely to use opiates three years later, even after adjusting for other potential risks. Something else that’s not given much attention is that cannabis today is much more potent than it was in the 1970s, when most marijuana contained less than 2 percent THC. Today, marijuana routinely contains 20 to 25 percent THC, as a result of sophisticated farming and cloning techniques. As such, it produces a stronger and quicker high. Berenson said that the difference between yesterday’s marijuana and today’s is like the difference between “near beer and a martini.” Berenson cited several studies and other findings showing a relationship between marijuana use and violence and crime. According to a 2007 paper in The Medical Journal of Australia on 88 felons who had committed homicide during psychotic episodes, almost twothirds reported misusing cannabis. A 2012 paper in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence examined a federal survey of more than 9,000 adolescents and found that marijuana use was associated with a doubling of domestic violence. The first four states to legalize marijuana for recreational use were Colorado, Washington, Alaska and Oregon. In 2013, those states combined had about 450 murders and 30,300 aggravated assaults. In 2017, they had almost 620 murders and 38,000 aggravated assaults — an increase of 37 percent for murders and 25 percent for aggravated assaults, far greater than the national increase, even after accounting for differences in population growth. One of the problems with legalization of marijuana is that it gives social sanction to its use. A preferable strategy would be simple decriminalization, which does not imply social sanction. Moreover, where there is no criminal activity associated with any drug usage, it should be treated as a medical problem, as opposed to a criminal problem. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

gether solid efforts on both ends of the floor after struggling offensively in a dismal 24-point effort against Virginia Tech, then getting torched for 113 points — the second most in school history — in a lopsided loss at North Carolina. State shot 51.9 percent from beyond the 3-point arc, played the Panthers to a virtual standoff on the boards and forced 15 turnovers while improving to 17-7 overall (5-6 ACC). Individually, Johnson played his best game since returning from a hip injury suffered in the first meeting with Pitt in Raleigh on Jan. 12.

COACH JON TORPEY STOOD emotionless on the sideline last Wednesday as his players rushed the field to celebrate the biggest win in the short history of the High Point lacrosse program — a 13-9 upset of second-ranked Duke. It wasn’t as though he was trying to hide his feelings or play it cool. Truth be told, he was in a state of disbelief. “People were like, ‘You were stoic,’ but I was more like I was in shock that the game was over and I was finally standing on a field with a group of guys that had the good fortune to win there,” Torpey said of his first win against the Blue Devils. “I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be around such great guys and fortunate to have coaches of top programs that will still play our guys and give us this opportunity.” Torpey’s Panthers trailed 7-6 early in the fourth quarter before stunning the home team with six unanswered goals in a seven-minute stretch early in the period. They then relied on senior goalie Tim Troutner to hold Duke off and preserve the victory. Although the Blue Devils are the highest-ranked team High Point has ever beaten in its seven-year lacrosse history, this isn’t its first win against a ranked opponent. The Panthers also beat No. 10 Virginia on Feb. 23, 2016. What made this victory so special, Torpey said, is because of who it came against. The former Ohio State defenseman called Duke the gold standard of college lacrosse because of its success on the field and leadership of coach John Danowski, who Torpey described as a mentor. “Those guys do such a great job that I want to get as much information out of them as possible in terms of how they develop their players and what they do to harness their greatness,” the High Point coach said of his more established counterparts with the Blue Devils. The relationship between Torpey and the Duke staff began with a trip to Durham early in his tenure to watch and learn as the Blue Devils prepared for a trip to the Final Four. Six years later, those lessons helped produce a victory the High Point coach wasn’t sure would ever happen. “I’ve probably played Duke as much as if not more than any coach in the country and I played against them too, and I’d never once beat those guys,” said Torpey, who joked that he didn’t start feeling confident about winning until the final two seconds. “I’ve been in a situation before where they’ll go off on a 10-goal run, because their ability to push transition with their athletes and the guys they put tight to the goal are exception-

By Brett Friedlander North State Journal NC STATE’S 79-76 victory at Pittsburgh on Saturday wasn’t a must-win in the literal sense of the word. But after three straight losses, with a trip to Duke coming up this weekend following a challenging home game against Syracuse on Wednesday, the Wolfpack needed something to stop its recent free fall toward the wrong side of the NCAA Tournament bubble. “This should give us a lot of confidence,” sophomore guard Braxton Beverly said after combining with teammates C.J.

Colleges finish up football recruiting classes With most players inked during the early period, N.C. schools add final touches on National Signing Day

came in at No. 76 nationally, up 13 spots from last year. NC State

By Shawn Krest North State Journal THE EARLY signing period in December once again took much of the drama out of last Wednesday’s National Signing Day. Of the 137 players signed by the seven FBS school in North Carolina, 112 signed in December. That’s 81.8 percent. That left a very small population of players left for everyone to chase before the February signing day. “You find the guys who don’t sign early are really heavily recruited because you’ve got entire staffs recruiting four or five guys in that second group,” UNC coach Mack Brown said. “It’s a lot harder to sign some of the guys the second time because of the attention they draw. And if you’re recruiting them, everybody jumps on them.” The early period is in just its second year, meaning that Brown, who came out of retirement to return to the Tar Heels, was dealing with it for the first time. Brown, like three other in-state coaches, also got a late start on recruiting, thanks to UNC’s postseason coaching change. Still, Brown was able to navigate the new landscape, on short notice, fairly well. The Tar Heels were rated 61st in the 2019 recruiting rankings when he took over. They promptly dropped into the 80s as several prospects decided to reopen their recruitment after speaking to Brown. By the December signing day, UNC was up to No. 36, and by adding five more signees last Wednesday, the Heels jumped to 32nd. That’s down 12 from last year but nowhere near as bad as things looked in early December. The Heels added five threestars, four of them on defense. They group includes the high-

They also signed linebacker Eugene Asante, DB Don Chapman, JUCO defensive end Ray Vohasek and offensive lineman Ty Murray. Here’s a look at how the other FBS schools in the state did: Appalachian State The Mountaineers also welcomed a new coach right before the early period. As a result, Eliah Drinkwitz was only able to bring in nine players in December. App added another nine, including the top-rated recruit in program history — three-star quarterback David Baldwin-Griffin. Three-star receiver Raykwon Anderson — one of the UNC recruits that left after meeting with Brown in December — is also one of App’s top five highest-rated recruits ever. Drinkwitz also added three of-

fensive linemen, two athletes — three-star Emmanuel Jenkins and Charlotte’s Benjamin Williams — and a DB. When the dust cleared, the Mountaineers were ranked No. 101, a 12-spot jump from last season. Charlotte Another team with a new coach, the 49ers signed just nine players in December. Coach Will Healy added five late signees and three transfers. The February signees are led by three-star receiver Noah Henderson. He’s joined by two other receivers — Jamel Brown and three-star Micaleous Elder. Charlotte also added a tight end and a linebacker. Transfers include LB Brelin Faison-Walden (Penn State) from Greensboro, DB Marquill Osborne (Tennessee) from Corenlius and QB Brett Kean (USF). The high school recruits (transfers aren’t included in the rankings) put Charlotte at No. 127, down 16 from last year.

East Carolina The Pirates hit the ground running under new coach Mike Houston, signing 18 players in December. ECU added three signees last week, all three-stars. JUCO signee Zech Byrd is a 6-foot-7 tight end who helped lead Garden City to the NJCAA National Championship Game last season. He initially committed to Florida coming out of high school and was a JUCO teammate of current Pirates DB Warren Saba in 2017, when he redshirted due to injury. ECU also added a pair of defensive linemen in Rick D’Abreu and Immanuel Hickman. D’Abreu put up a high school stat line for the ages, getting 31 solo tackles, 13 TFL, 10 QB pressures and seven sacks in three games as a senior before getting injured. Hickman was a two-way player in high school, who played tight end while splitting time on defense between linebacker and defensive end. Houston’s first Pirates class

College baseball season underway in NC ney are the headliners on a veteran pitching staff.

The state had seven schools reach last year’s NCAA tournament

ECU

By Brett Friedlander North State Journal PITCHERS AND catchers are starting to trickle into major league spring training camps. But for college baseball, the regular season is already here with opening games scheduled throughout the state on Friday. Seven teams from North Carolina earned spots in the NCAA tournament last year, with North Carolina making it all the way to Omaha for the College World Series. How will those teams fare this year? Here’s a look at all the state’s most prominent teams line up. UNC Coach Mike Fox’s Tar Heels return many of the key pieces from that World Series team, especially on the mound where right-handers Gianluca Dalatri (if he can stay healthy) and Austin Bergner are a formidable 1-2 punch in the rotation and preseason Collegiate Baseball All-American Caden O’Brien anchors a solid bullpen. Offensively, junior first baseman Michael Busch is back, looking to build on a 2018 season in which he led the team with 13 homers and 63 RBI while hitting .317. NC State The Wolfpack has been picked to finish fourth in the ACC’s Atlantic Division. But despite those low expectations and some key losses, most notably conference Pitcher of the Year Brian Brown, coach Elliott Avent’s team still has the potential to make some noise this season. State’s lineup is still potent with preseason All-American Will Wilson back at shortstop and rising star Patrick Bailey behind the plate. Six-foot-7 left-hander Kent Klyman is a workhorse who led the team with 31 appearances and eight wins last season out of a bullpen that figures to be called on often thanks to a starting rotation in need of retooling.

Duke pitcher Graeme Stinson is a preseason All-American and considered a top prospect for this year’s Major League Baseball draft. Duke The Blue Devils won a school-record 45 games, advanced to a Super Regional for the first time ever and came one win from getting to Omaha last season. Although coach Chris Pollard lost most of his offensive production from that team, including second-round MLB draft pick Griffin Conine, he does return some strong arms around which to rebuild. The pitching staff is anchored by preseason All-American Graeme Stinson, a projected top-five prospect in this year’s draft, and fellow southpaw Adam Laskey. The good news for Duke is that one of the few remaining bats in the lineup belongs to sophomore first baseman Joey Loperfido, who led the team with a .315 average in 2018. Wake Forest Tom Walter’s Deacons took a step back last year after losing the bulk of their lineup to graduation and the draft. But with eight of nine starters back, along with two of their three weekend starters, the potential is there for a quick bounce back. Senior second baseman Jake Mueller was a second-team AllACC pick in 2018 and is the top returning hitter at .303. Outfielders Chris Lanzilli and DJ Poteet provide power in the middle of the batting order after tying for the team lead with nine homers each as freshmen, while six-game winner Colin Peluse and fellow right-hander Morgan McSwee-

The Pirates won the American Athletic Conference title and accomplished their goal of hosting an NCAA regional last season. But their hopes of making a first-ever trip to Omaha were dashed with a loss to in-state rival UNC Wilmington. With this bulk of a potent lineup back, led by 2018 conference Player of the Year Bryant Packard (.406, 14 homers) and power-hitting first baseman Spencer Brickhouse (10 homers), coach Cliff Godwin has a team that could go even deeper into the postseason this year. The big question is whether ECU can finally find some consistency from a pitching staff led by juniors Trey Benton and Jake Agnos, and hard-throwing sophomore Gavin Williams. UNCW When you’ve built a program as successful as the one coach Mark Scalf has with the Seahawks, you don’t rebuild. You reload. And that’s what it appears UNCW has done after earning its fifth Colonial Athletic Association championship and ninth NCAA regional appearance a year ago. The Seahawks were picked to finish second in the CAA this spring and placed four players on the preseason all-conference team — sophomore shortstop Greg Jones, junior third baseman Cole Weiss, junior outfielder Kep Brown and junior Jackson Meadows, who split time between the outfield and infield in 2018. Campbell The Camels are the favorites to repeat as Big South champions after a season in which they won both the league’s regular season and tournament titles. A big reason for the high hopes is the return of conference batting champion Matthew Barefoot, who enters 2019 as the Big South preseason Player of the Year after hitting .364 with 18 doubles and 33 steals a year ago. Joining him on the roster are 15 returning letter winners, including top starting pitcher Michael Horrell and closer Tyson Messer, both of whom joined Barefoot as presea-

son all-league selections. NC A&T Like Campbell, the Aggies have been picked to repeat as conference champions and to return to the NCAA tournament for the second straight year. Among their top returners are first-team preseason All-MEAC pitcher Michael Johnson and A.J. Hunt, along with second-team selection Zach McLean at first base. Best of the rest UNC Greensboro stands a strong chance at getting into the NCAA tournament field this season after winning the Southern Conference regular season championship a year ago, then falling just short in the league tournament. The Spartans are led by preseason league Player of the Year Caleb Webster, who hit .380 and scored 51 runs in 2018. Charlotte returns its top hitter Harris Yett (.323, six home runs, 37 RBI) from a team that went 34-24 last spring, but the 49ers need to improve on a 12-15 mark on the road to make any movement up the Conference USA standings. High Point also enters the new season with high hopes after winning 34 games and falling to Campbell in the Big South tournament championship game. The Panthers return all but one of their key pitchers and most of the big bats that helped them lead the conference in batting average and homers — including seniors Conner Dunbar, Daniel Millwee and JJ Woodard. Appalachian State looks to build on a late surge that saw it earn 10 of its 18 wins over the final 19 games of the 2018 season. The Mountaineers are counting on sophomore pitcher Will Sprinkle and the bats of classmates Alex Leshock, Bailey Welch and Kendall McGowan to keep the momentum going. Finally, Western Carolina returns seven players that started 29 or more games from a team that won just 11 games last season, led by Southern Conference All-Freshman infielder Justice Bigbie, while NC Central looks to ride the bat of 2018 MEAC Player of the Year Corey Joyce, who led the conference in average (.358), hits (64) and walks (32).

The Wolfpack had the most February signing day drama. Despite being committed to NC State since May, four-star running back Jamious Griffin chose not to sign in December, continuing to shop around. He took January official visits to Louisville and Auburn, then flipped to Georgia Tech. The Wolfpack replaced him by flipping Jordan Houston from Maryland. In addition to the three-star, who is rated the No. 8 all-purpose back in the senior class, the Pack added safety Cecil Powell, a two-sport athlete who also ran middle distances and did long jump in track. State also added graduate transfer Tabari Hines, a receiver who has split his college career between Wake Forest and Oregon. The two high school additions to the 18 players State signed in December put the Wolfpack at No. 29, down three from last year. Wake Forest The Deacs took care of most of their business in December, signing 20 players. The only February addition was three-star DB Isiah Essissima. The class comes in at No. 53 nationally, up 11 from last year. Duke The Blue Devils stood pat in February after signing 20 players in December. Duke comes in at No. 46, up 17 from last year. FCS Rankings The in-state FCS programs that were rated by one of the major recruiting networks are: Western Carolina: 151 (up 13); NC Central: 193 (unrated last year); NC A&T: 205 (down 7); Elon: 216 (down 12); and Gardner-Webb: 236 (down 27).

NC STATE from page B1 the same night,” coach Kevin Keatts said after the game. “I’m excited to get the win. As you guys know, in the ACC any road win is golden.” It’s especially important now that talk of ACC Tournament seedings and NCAA Tournament bids are starting to become more than just internet clickbait. While there’s no exact science when it comes to gauging which criteria the NCAA Selection Committee will deem most important from year to year, the Wolfpack’s current RPI of 114 and 193 strength of schedule could potentially lead to some sleepless nights between now and Selection Sunday. The good news is that in the new College NET rankings, which are supposedly going to carry more weight than the old RPI, State stands at a much more palatable 35. Keatts said he and his staff don’t pay much attention to things such as computer rankings, at least not with a month still left in the regular season. At the same time, he admitted that he has a clear-cut preference when it comes to the choice between RPI and NET. “If our NET is (35) and our RPI is 120-something, I’m going to side with the NET now,” he said Monday on the ACC’s weekly coaches teleconference. “Hopefully, that’s what the (Selection Committee) decides to go by. “But I don’t think anybody’s figured out anything. I do know this: The RPI was outdated and doesn’t factor in a lot of stuff. We’re all, as basketball coaches, trying to figure out the NET.” One thing Keatts already knows is that if his team gets on a roll and strings some wins together, especially with the upcoming schedule, it won’t have to concern itself with trivial matters such as computer rankings and bubble watches. That makes Wednesday’s home game against Syracuse just as important as the one the Wolfpack just played at Pitt. It promises to be even more challenging because the confounding 2-3 zone defense that has become the Orange’s trademark under coach Jim Boeheim. “Going into the game, you’ve got to have a good mixture of what you’re going to do offensively and defensively against them. And you have to make some shots,” Keatts said. “I think we’ll have a good balance after a couple of games concentrating on our defense and, obviously, playing against their zone that’s really effective.”

North State Journal for Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Byron takes poll to put Hendrick up front again for Daytona 500 Charlotte native hopes to become the first pole-sitter to win the Great American Race since 2000 By Mark Long The Associated Press DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — William Byron put Hendrick Motorsports in a familiar position: on the pole for the Daytona 500. His bigger goal is to make the starting spot pay dividends for the NASCAR powerhouse. The 21-year-old Charlotte native and 25-year-old teammate Alex Bowman locked in the front row for “The Great American Race” during qualifying laps Sunday at Daytona International Speedway. They comprise the youngest front row in Daytona 500 history. The coveted starting spot hasn’t meant much for NASCAR’s season opener over the last two decades, though. The last Daytona 500 pole-sitter to win the race was Dale Jarrett in 2000. The last four — Hendrick’s Jeff Gordon, Chase Elliott (twice) and Bowman — have failed to notch a top-10 finish. “To have them on top of each other means the organization did a heck of a job,” Hendrick said. “This is the deal to sit on the pole at Daytona.” Byron and Bowman edged the other two Hendrick drivers: seven-time Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson and fan favorite Chase Elliott. “That’s a pretty amazing feat, I feel,” said longtime Hendrick crew chief Chad Knaus, who is entering his first season with Byron after 18 years with Johnson. Knaus and Johnson landed the Daytona 500 pole in their first race together in 2002. After splitting with Johnson at the end of last season, Knaus essentially repeated the feat with Byron. “I think it’s huge,” Knaus said. “We’ve had a lot of late nights, a lot of long hours. The last time I came here with a new driver, we sat on the pole. This is really special for me.” Byron reached a top speed of 194.304 mph in the final round of qualifying, nearly two-tenths of a second faster than Bowman (194.153). “I thought we were going to be somewhere in the hunt,” Byron said. “I was excited to get down here and see what we had. It’s really cool.”

The rest of the 40-car lineup will be set by Thursday’s two qualifying races. Thirty-six of those spots are already filled because of NASCAR’s charter system. Former Hendrick driver Casey Mears and Tyler Reddick secured two of the remaining spots in the Daytona 500. They posted the top speeds of the six drivers vying for four open spots in NASCAR’s season opener. “I really feel like we’ll be able to be competitive,” Mears said. “I can tell you this: I’ve been at Daytona with a lot less and ran inside the top five.” Joey Gase, Ryan Truex, Parker Kligerman and Brandan Gaughan likely will have to race their way into the 500 during the qualifying races. Two of them will make it, and the other two won’t. Byron and his teammates will spend the week being lauded as the Daytona 500 favorites. They also will try to stay out of trouble in the qualifying races. “We want to take care of the cars for sure,” Hendrick said. “We don’t want to put the cars in any unnecessary harm’s way. It’s kind of a twoedge sword on the front row. You don’t want to take a chance of tearing up a really good car, but you’ve got to figure out what to race.” Hendrick has been outspoken about how difficult the 2018 season was on the organization, calling it one of the worst in team history. The Hendrick cars were mediocre at best — Johnson failed to win for the first time in his Cup career — and it took 22 races for the organization to get its first victory. The final tally included three victories for Elliott and no drivers in the championship-deciding finale for the second consecutive year. Hendrick responded by splitting up Johnson and Knaus, tasking Knaus with building another team around Byron. A new racing package in 2019 also should benefit Bowman and Byron because neither had much experience under the old rules. For at least one day or maybe even a week, the moves are paying off. “You work all these years coming down here and you want all the cars to run well,” Hendrick said. “And if you have one up front and a couple in the back, in the middle; but this is a tribute to our organization, the engine shop, the chassis, body shop, and the teams to come down here and run with four cars running that good. I can’t believe it.”

HIGH POINT from page B1 al.” On this occasion, it was Torpey’s Panthers that strung together the decisive fourth-quarter spurt. The key to the outburst was junior Davis Sampere’s ability to win faceoffs and maintain control of the ball for his team. Chris Young and Koby Russell each scored twice during the six-goal run while last year’s Southern Conference Player and Rookie of the Year Asher Nolting and Ben Baker added one goal apiece. The Blue Devils tried to come back by scoring the next two goals, but the combination of Troutner in net and an insurance tally by Young allowed High Point to run out the clock without an abundance of drama. It was a victory that was celebrated by a wild dog pile on the field and eventually, a smile or two from Torpey. But even though the Panthers aren’t scheduled to play again until Saturday against Drexel, the veteran coach began to move on from it as soon as the

obligatory 24-hour rule expired. He said it’s more important to keep working toward the goal of winning the Southern Conference and earning an NCAA Tournament bid than to risk losing focus over one early-season win. At the same time, he acknowledged that the upset of Duke was a significant event that could have a lasting impact on how his fledgling program is viewed nationally. “For the people outside our locker room, it’s like, ‘Who are these guys, what’s their deal, what’s their story?’” Torpey said. “But I say it all the time: We’re not a team, we’re a program. We’re a group of guys that do a lot of things the right way. “I’ve had people ask how’d you beat them? What did you do? And I say there’s a lot of work that goes into it. It’s the same approach every day for three or four years so that guys feel like they can do it without thinking. There’s so much stickwork, movement, ball spacing work and individual skill development, not the kind of thing normal people would want to put the time and effort into doing.”

Hornets guard Kemba Walker and Charlotte native and Warriors guard Stephen Curry are two of several players with ties to North Carolina at this weekend’s NBA All-Star 2019 events in Charlotte.

NBA All-Stars come — and come back — to NC Weekend of festivities in Charlotte will feature several players with ties to the state By Shawn Krest North State Journal IT’S A COUPLE YEARS later than expected, but the NBA AllStar Weekend will take place in Charlotte this weekend. The Hornets were originally supposed to host the rest of the league two years ago, but the game was moved during fallout over state law H.B. 2. Now, free of any political baggage, the All-Star Game and the rest of the NBA’s activities that go along with it will come to Charlotte. There will be plenty of players with connections to the state participating in the events as well. Hornets guard Kemba Walker was voted by the fans as one of the game’s starters. He was drafted by team captain Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Bucks and will start for Team Giannis against LeBron James’ squad. This is Walker’s third straight All-Star Game and first as a starter. He’s the first Charlotte player to make three straight teams since Glen Rice in 1996-1998. Walker is just the seventh different Charlotte player to be named an All-Star, and his appearance this year will be the 13th for the city’s franchise. Walker is also the third Charlotte player to start the game, joining Larry Johnson (1993) and Eddie Jones (2000). Walker earned the starting gig in his home arena by averaging 25.1 points and 5.7 assists per game this season. Joining Walker in the Team Giannis starting lineup will be Charlotte native Steph Curry, of Golden State. This will be Curry’s sixth straight All-Star appearance and sixth consecutive start. He was Antetokounmpo’s first selection in the All-Star Draft. Curry is averaging 28.6 points per game this year, his highest average in three years. His .449 shooting percentage on threes is also his highest in three years. James will be reunited with a former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate after choosing former Duke one-and-done Kyrie Irving for his starting lineup. Irving is in his second year with the Celtics and averaging 23.6 points and 6.9 assists per game. This will be Irving’s sixth AllStar Game and third in a row. He’s making his fourth start, also his third in a row. Irving is the eighth Duke player to be named an All-Star. He already is the school’s all-time leading scorer in the game, with 92 points. He’ll tie Grant Hill for the most appearances by a Duke play-

Duke is also well-represented in the other All-Star 2019 events. Former Blue Devils All-American Jay Williams will play in the Celebrity Game on Friday night. Williams’ NBA career was cut short by injury, and he’s now an ESPN college analyst. Also playing in the celebrity game will be longtime Carolina Panthers’ wide receiver Steve Smith. Following the Celebrity Game, the NBA will feature its young players in the Rising Stars game. The rosters are made up of the top young American players pitted against the best young players from the rest of the world. Two recent Duke stars will play for Team U.S.: Marvin Bagley III and Jayson Tatum. Bagley, who led the Blue Devils last year, is averaging 13.3 points and 7.0 rebounds for Sacramento as a rookie. Tatum, a 2016-17 Blue Devil, is averaging 16.4 points and 6.3 rebounds in his second season with the Celtics. They’ll be joined on U.S. team by Wake Forest’s John Collins. In his second year in the league, Collins is averaging 19.3 points and 9.8 rebounds with the Hawks. Tatum and Collins will then need to rest up, because both will be competing on All-Star Saturday Night. Tatum will participate in the Skills Challenge, which leads off the evening. The timed challenge tests a player’s speed, dribbling and passing ability. Past winners with North Carolina connections include former Hornet Baron Davis (who won after the team moved to New Orleans), Curry and current Hornet Tony Parker (who won with San

Antonio). Curry and Walker will start their weekends a night early, as both All-Stars will take part in the 3-Point Contest. Curry won in 2015 and will be making his sixth appearance. He’ll be competing against his brother, former Liberty and Duke shooting star Seth Curry, of Portland. This will be Walker’s second appearance in the contest. He finished third in 2017. He becomes the third Hornet to participate in multiple 3-Point Contests, joining the Curry brothers’ father, Dell, (twice) and Rice (three times). Scott Burrell is the only other Charlotte player to ever participate. Former Tar Heel Danny Green, now of the Raptors, will also be competing in the 3-Point Contest for the first time. Previous winners with a connection to the state include former Charlotte 49ers coach Mark Price, who won twice with Cleveland, former Hornet Rice (who won with Miami), Irving and Curry. Perhaps the highlight of the weekend is the Slam Dunk contest. Three of the four competitors in this year’s dunk off have Carolina connections. Hornets rookie Miles Bridges will become the seventh Charlotte player to compete and first since Gerald Wallace in 2010. Collins will also be competing, along with former NC State star Dennis Smith Jr. who is making is second straight appearance. Past winners include NC State guard Spud Webb, former Tar Heel Michael Jordan (twice), former Tar Heel Vince Carter, onetime Hornet Dwight Howard (with Orlando) and Raleigh native John Wall, who won as part of a three-man team.

Pendo earns global prominence; commits to 500+ jobs with Raleigh HQ Once a small team working out of a Raleigh office-share, software company now set to open fifth worldwide location while confirming plans to employ more than 800 at new Raleigh headquarters By David Larson North State Journal RALEIGH — Pendo, a fast-growing tech company started in Raleigh, was recently named the “Software Company of the Year” at the 2018 NC Tech Awards, and has just announced an expansion that will establish a permanent headquarters in Raleigh, bringing with it 590 new jobs over the next five years. This company, now known around the world, began with a small team working out of downtown co-working space HQ Raleigh. The idea for Pendo came in the fall of 2013 when Todd Olson, who led the product team at Rally Software, saw an unfilled need for a platform that improves the user experience across software programs. Many companies were having to create their own answer to this problem from scratch. “I experienced the pain firsthand,” Olson told North State Journal. “And I started speaking with people with similar backgrounds, and they would say, ‘Yeah, that would be really useful.’ So, I knew I had something.” By the end of the year, he had convinced three others to join him as co-founders, and by New Year’s Day of 2014, they launched Pendo out of HQ Raleigh’s original location, which . “It’s really about making sure people use software products well,” said Olson about the purpose of Pendo’s product. “Imagine you go to use something and you get confused; you can’t figure it out. There’s a higher likelihood that you’re going to leave and find another piece of software that’s easier to use. So, we help improve

the experience of software applications.” Coding from day one Like most new companies, Pendo had basic business needs starting out. But Todd and team didn’t want things like real estate, business filings or internet plans to distract from the important software development work required to launch a new product. “The last company that I started, I had to get office space, sign a long-term lease, get furniture, coffee, internet, you name it,” Olson said. “I lost a couple months just doing stupid things that had nothing to do with the business.” By setting up shop in HQ, this process was much smoother this time. “We signed that HQ lease and started coding day one,” he said. “There was no delay. As an entrepreneur, it was game-changing. We could jump right in and start solving real problems.” Another benefit of signing with HQ is Pendo had the opportunity to scale operations seamlessly as they grew. After nearly a year in a one-person suite, the company moved to a five-person suite. Growing in Raleigh Building a product from nothing is always a challenge, and it took around 10 months to build this product and get companies to begin adopting it into their software. By late 2015 though, Pendo had raised Series A funding and was ready to make a bigger splash. When asked if he was surprised at how quickly the company has grown since then, Olson said, “If you asked me whether I thought we’d have a 250-person company in two years, I would have been crazy to say yes. Having said that, each year, we set goals and we’ve hit them. So we start the year saying, ‘We’re going to do this,’ and we’ve been the kind of company that does it year in and year out. But it’s always cool when things work out the way you hope they will.”

At first, investors and clients would raise eyebrows at the mention of Pendo’s Raleigh homebase. It was a bit of a risk initially not to be located in Silicon Valley, but now their success and reputation overshadows any doubt about location. “I still hear from at least somebody every day that says, ‘Raleigh? Really?’ but the reality is, at this point, it doesn’t matter anymore. At our scale and our size, it doesn’t matter where you’re located. We’ve built a great company here; we love the area. We’ve committed to it, as we’ve recently announced, and we’re happy to be here.” Pendo has continued to grow, and now they inhabit much of the Wells Fargo Building on Fayetteville Street in the heart of downtown Raleigh. However, Olsen estimates that they will outgrow their current location within the next two to three years, and because so few existing buildings have enough space to accommodate the expected 800-plus employees, he expects to sign a lease in one of Raleigh’s newest downtown real estate projects, a building set to open in timing with the expansion. The group expects to make a decision in the first quarter of next year and to move by 2022. Still setting big goals Major companies around the world are using Pendo, as are companies with a local presence, like Citrix and Dude Solutions. In terms of immediate big plans for the new year? Nothing big. They simply plan to spend 2019 doubling the size of their business, opening a new office in Europe and launching a new product. These plans might sound a bit ambitious until you learn that Pendo more than doubled revenue over the last year and the office in Europe will actually be their fifth — besides Raleigh, the company has offices in San Francisco, New York and Israel.

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT Sponsored by

The First Edenton Masquerade Ball To Take Place At Wessington House Anyone calling The Tar Heel State home knows North Carolina is a state steeped in history and tradition. One need no further evidence than our storied nickname for proof – a moniker referring to the courage displayed by North Carolina soldiers during the Civil War. So, annual festivals and events commemorating our cultural and historical milestones abound – each an opportunity to reflect on and pay homage to a colorful past. The public power community of Edenton is no exception. This Saturday, February 16, the city will pull out all the stops, with a black-tie celebration in one of its landmark buildings. It’s the first annual Masquerade Ball. Sponsored by The Edenton Historical Commission, which exists to preserve local history for the education and enjoyment of visitors and locals alike, this event will take place at Wessington House – one of North Carolina’s most opulent and storied homes. Built in 1850, the 10-room, two-story mansion is the perfect backdrop for this fundraiser, a party that encourages, but does not require, guests to wear masks. The event runs 7 to 10 p.m. and will include a musical performance by Broadway star Randall Keith, an open bar, and hors d’oeuvres. Visit http:// ehcnc.org/masquerade/ to learn more.

Bankrupt South Texas beef processor sold Corpus Christi, Tx. /Charlotte A South Texas beef processor has been sold to a North Carolina real estate developer at a court-approved bankruptcy auction. Corpus Christi-based Sam Kane Beef Processors had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month . In a statement, JDH Capital Co. of Charlotte, North Carolina, said it intends to make “meaningful investments in the processing plant and will continue to operate the business as a going concern. The slaughterhouse had agreed in a July federal court settlement to pay nearly $38 million over 18 months that it owed to livestock sellers. Federal law requires nextbusiness-day payment for livestock purchases. That was after the company was accused of violating a January 2017 order by the U.S. Department of Agriculture requiring the slaughterhouse to make payments when due.

Toys R US plans second act under new name New York Toys R Us fans in the U.S. should see the iconic brand re-emerge in some form by this holiday season. Richard Barry, a former Toys R Us executive and now CEO of the new company called Tru Kids Brands, says he and his team are still working on the details, but they’re exploring various options including freestanding stores and shops within existing stores. He says that e-commerce will play a key role. Toys R Us, buckling under competition from Amazon and several billions of dollars of debt, filed for Chapter 11 reorganization in September 2017 and then liquidated its businesses last year in the U.S. as well as several other regions including the United Kingdom.

Norfolk Southern details plan to improve railroad, cut costs Norfolk, Va. Norfolk Southern railroad expects to become significantly more efficient by 2021, and operate with 3,000 fewer employees and 500 fewer locomotives. The railroad detailed its plan to continue improving operations Monday at an investor conference. Norfolk Southern has been working to reduce costs and get more efficient since 2015, but other railroads, particularly eastern rival CSX, have cut expenses and overhauled operations more aggressively over the past several years. Norfolk Southern plans to apply some of the same principles CSX has used successfully to operate its railroad on a tighter schedule with fewer cars and locomotives. Edward Jones analyst Dan Sherman says he thinks the stock price already reflects Norfolk Southern’s plans. Sherman says Norfolk Southern’s success will depend on how well they implement the plan.

In this Jan. 3, 2019, file photo a cashier returns a credit card and a receipt at a McDonald’s window, where signage for job openings are displayed in Atlantic Highlands, N.J. On Tuesday, Feb. 12, the Labor Department reports on job openings and labor turnover for December.

US job openings jump to record high of 7.3 million By Christopher Rugaber The Associated Press WASHINGTON — U.S. employers posted the most open jobs in December in the nearly two decades that records have been kept, evidence that the job market is strong despite several challenges facing the economy. The Labor Department said Tuesday that job openings jumped 2.4 percent in December to 7.3 million. That is the most since records began in December 2000. It is also far greater than the number of unemployed, which stood at 6.3 million that month. Businesses have shrugged off a variety of potential troubles

for the economy in the past two months and kept on hiring. The 35-day partial government shutdown began Dec. 22, and growth in China, Europe and Japan has weakened, threatening U.S. exports. Still, employers added 304,000 jobs in January, the government said earlier this month, the most in nearly a year. The jump in openings in December suggests hiring will likely remain robust. Openings are typically filled within 1 to 2 months. The surge in available jobs indicates that businesses expect demand to remain healthy and that they will need more employees to meet it. Tuesday’s data also showed that

employers boosted hiring in December, while the number of people who quit remained unchanged at a healthy level of about 3.5 million. Higher quits are typically sign of a dynamic job market, as most people quit to take a new job. The number of unemployed typically runs far ahead of job openings, but that switched early last year. That could mean potentially stronger wage gains are in store in the months ahead. With job postings so high at a time that the unemployment rate is at a very low 4 percent, businesses may be forced to pay more to attract the workers they need.

Paychecks are already increasing, though at a modest pace. Average hourly pay rose 3.2 percent in January from a year earlier, the government said earlier this month. That’s near December’s figure of 3.3 percent, which matched the best pay gain in almost a decade. Still, wage increases typically top 4 percent when the unemployment rate is this low. Many industries with the biggest increases in job openings include mostly lower-paying jobs. Restaurants and hotels advertised more than 1 million jobs, 84,000 more than in November. Health care job postings rose 79,000 to 1.2 million. Some higher-paying industries also did well. Professional and business services, which include jobs in fields such as architecture and engineering, rose 82,000 to 1.34 million. Available jobs in manufacturing, meanwhile, fell 67,000 to 428,000. They also dropped in retail and financial services.

Tariffs take toll on whiskey exports in last half of 2018 By Bruce Schreiner The Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Retaliatory tariffs caused a sharp downturn in American whiskey exports in the last half of 2018 as distillers started feeling the pain from global trade disputes, an industry trade group said Tuesday. Exports to some key overseas markets gyrated wildly last year for producers of bourbon, Tennessee whiskey and rye whiskey. Overall, U.S. spirits exports in 2018 stayed on another record-setting trajectory, due in part to surging whiskey sales in the months leading up to the tariffs as larger distillers stockpiled supplies, the Distilled Spirits Council said. Other categories including vodka, brandy and rum also had strong overseas sales. But exports would have been much higher without the trade war, it said. “For the first time, data can demonstrate the negative impact of retaliatory tariffs on what had been a booming export growth story,” said Christine LoCascio, the council’s senior vice president for international affairs. “The tariffs are making it more difficult to be competitive in key markets,” she added. The export figures confirmed fears among industry leaders that tariffs would depress overseas sales. But whiskey industry officials have been muted in blaming President Donald Trump and others for the export headaches. American whiskey exports to the European Union — the industry’s biggest export market — fell by 8.7 percent from July through November of last year, compared to the same period in 2017, the group said in its annual report re-

leased in New York. In the first half of 2018, American whiskey exports to the EU surged by 33 percent, it said. Overall global American whiskey exports grew by 28 percent in the first half of 2018, then fell by 8.2 percent from July to November — compared to a year ago — once tariffs took effect, according to the trade group’s export figures, based on numbers supplied by the U.S. government. “That suggests that the tariffs are starting to have a measureable impact on American whiskey exports,” LoCascio said. Despite the volatility, exports for all U.S. spirits recorded another record at almost $1.7 billion through November, the council said. “It would have been a lot stronger if we hadn’t had these tariffs” said council spokesman Frank Coleman. “If not for the tariffs, we would have been popping the corks on the best bottles in our liquor cabinet.” American whiskey makers face retaliatory tariffs in Canada, Mexico, China and Turkey as well as the EU. Those duties amount to a tax, which producers can either pass along to customers through higher prices or absorb shrinking profits. Some large American distillers gained a short-term cushion from trade disputes by stockpiling whiskey supplies in countries ahead of the tariffs. But as the trade disputes continue, they are being hit, too. Smaller distillers didn’t have the luxury of stockpiling.

In this June 20, 2018 file photo, Catoctin Creek Distillery whiskey is on display in a tasting room in Purcellville, Va. Retaliatory tariffs caused a sharp downturn in American whiskey exports in the last half of 2018 as distillers started feeling the pain from getting caught up in global trade disputes, an industry trade group said Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019. Catoctin Creek Distillery has a couple hundred cases of its rye whiskey sitting in a European warehouse. The inventory was built up in anticipation of growing European sales in 2018. But since the tariffs took effect, their sales in Italy and Germany have plunged, and its plans of expanding to the United Kingdom are on hold, said its co-founder and general manager, Scott Harris. tion of growing European sales in 2018. But since the tariffs took effect, Catoctin Creek’s sales in Italy and Germany have plunged and its plans of expanding to the United Kingdom are on hold, said its co-founder and general manager, Scott Harris. About 11 percent of its overall 2017 revenues came from Europe. The distillery hoped its European business would increase to onefourth of total revenues in 2018, but “that part just never materialized,” Harris said in an interview. “If we were able to get the tariffs removed, I think we’d be in good shape to really just take off,” he said. For now, Catoctin Creek is absorbing the costs of tariffs for the scaled-back European sales it’s able to make in hopes of maintaining relationships with distributors and staying competitive, Harris said. “For European sales, it means we’re losing money on every bottle,” he said. Asked how long his distillery

can afford to do that, he replied: “I don’t even want to think about it. We might do it for another half of year and see. Honestly, it’s hard to be optimistic at this point.” While exports were a glaring concern, domestic sales of distilled spirits were strong in 2018. The council reported another year of record spirits sales and volumes in the U.S., resulting in continued market share growth. Supplier sales were up over 5.1 percent, rising $1.3 billion to a total of $27.5 billion, while volumes rose 2.2 percent to 231 million cases, it said. “These robust results show adult consumers are continuing to favor spirits over beer and wine, particularly among millennials,” council President and CEO Chris Swonger said. Combined U.S. revenues for bourbon, Tennessee whiskey and rye whiskey rose 6.6 percent, or $224 million, to $3.6 billion in 2018, council said. Domestic volumes rose 5.9 percent to 24.5 million cases.

Female acts, rap songs win big at the Grammy Awards North Carolina artists represented across multiple categories; annual awards show highlights female musical performances after 2018 backlash for underrepresentation By Mesfin Fekadu The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Women and rap triumphed at the Grammys on Sunday as female acts took home top prizes including album of the year and best new artist, and Childish Gambino made history when his hit “This Is America” became the first rap-based track to win record and song of the year. Kacey Musgraves’ country-pop release “Golden Hour” won album of the year, and British singer Dua Lipa won best new artist — a year after female voices were somewhat muted at the 2018 ceremony and the Grammys were criticized for the low number of female nominees. Six women were nominated for best new artist, and five of the eight album-of-the-year nominees were women, including Brandi Carlile, who described herself as “a kid from the ‘90s from Lilith Fair.” “Those women were just dominating those platforms. They were dominating those arena and amphitheater stages. They were getting record deals. They were becoming record executives themselves,” Carlile said. But watching those gains “backslide for the last 20 years has been heartbreaking.” “Tonight gives me hope as a mother of two young daughters,” said Carlile, who won three honors in the Americana category and was the most nominated women with six. Musgraves and Gambino were the night’s top winners, taking home four awards each. “This Is America” also won best music video and best rap/sung performance. Ludwig Goransson, who cowrote and produced Gambino’s song, said he was surprised a rap song had never won in the past. “If you listen to the radio or if just you watch our culture or look at the most downloaded and streamed artists and bought albums, you see what’s at the top and what people listen to and you see what people get inspired by. It’s about time something like this happened,” he said backstage. Gambino’s historic win comes years after rappers have struggled to win in the top categories, including Jay-Z, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar. Drake, who has lost in the big four categories over the years, told the room of musicians that winning awards isn’t necessary if you have real fans attending your concerts and singing your songs.

Ludwig Goransson, accepts the award for record of the year for “This Is America” at the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, in Los Angeles.

“Look, if there are people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain and the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this right here. I promise you. You already won,” said Drake, who won best rap song for “God’s Plan.” He tried to continue speaking but was cut off as the ceremony suddenly went to a commercial. The last time a rapper won album of the year was in 2004 with Outkast. Only a handful of rappers have won best new artist. Cardi B also made history as the first solo fe-

male to win best rap album (Lauryn Hill won as a member of the Fugees at the 1997 Grammys). She was shaking onstage as she tried to give a thank-you speech with her rapper-husband Offset holding her arm. “The nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed,” she said as the audience laughed. “I just want to say thank you everybody that was involved ... I want to thank my daughter.” At the 2018 Grammys, male acts dominated in nominations, and the only woman competing for the top award, Lorde, did not get a chance

to perform onstage. The Grammys kicked off with a group of powerful women, including Michelle Obama, describing the role of music in their lives. “Music has always helped me tell my story,” said Obama, who surprised the audience with her appearance. “Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves. It allows us to hear one another.” Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jennifer Lopez also spoke and stood in solidary with Obama, Gaga and Alicia Keys, who hosted the show. “Yes, ladies,” Keys said. “There’s nothing better than this.” Gaga won three Grammys, including best pop duo/group performance for the Oscar-nominated hit “Shallow,” a win she shared with Bradley Cooper. Gaga performed the song solo since Cooper was in London for the British Academy Film Awards. Dolly Parton was honored and performed alongside Miley Cyrus, Musgraves, Maren Morris and Katy Perry. But the country music icon truly shined when she sang “Red Shoes” with country foursome Little Big Town providing background vocals. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day teamed up for a stirring performance of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” in honor Aretha Franklin, who died last year. Diana Ross earned a standing ovation when she emerged onstage in a bright red dress to perform “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” and “The Best Years of My Life.” She celebrated her 75th birthday early with the performance,

saying afterward, “Happy birthday to me!” Her actual birthday is March 26. R&B singer H.E.R., who won two R&B awards, stunned as she played her guitar and sang. Chloe x Halle, nominated for two awards, impressed when they sang Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack’s “Where Is the Love.” Ariana Grande won her first Grammy in the same week that she publicly blasted Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and accused him of lying about why she was no longer performing at the show. Beck was a double winner during the pre-telecast, taking home best alternative music album and best engineered album (non-classical) for “Colors.” Emily Lazar, one of the engineers who worked on the album and won alongside Beck, was the first female mastering engineer to win in the latter category. Beyonce, Jay-Z, Ella Mai, Pharrell Williams, Hugh Jackman, Sting, Shaggy, Dave Chappelle, “Weird Al” Yankovic, the late Chris Cornell, Greta Van Fleet and even former President Jimmy Carter also picked up early awards ahead of the live show. NC Grammy presence with winners, nominees Best Historical Album Winner: “Voices of Mississippi: Artists and Musicians Documented by William Ferris - William Ferris, April Ledbetter & Steven Lance Ledbetter, compilation producers; Michael Graves, mastering engineer (Various Artists). Ferris is a professor at UNC Chapel Hill. “Voices” won a second Grammy Award for Best Album Notes for David Evans’ liner notes in the 120-page hardback book that accompanies the package. Best Latin Jazz Album Winner: “Back to the Sunset” – Dafins Prieto Big Band, produced by Eric Oberstein. Oberstein is the acting director of Duke Performances. North Carolina was also represented by nominees in these categories: Best New Artist (Luke Combs, Charlotte native), Best R&B Song and Best Rap/Sung Performance (J. Cole, lives in Raleigh), Best Spoken Word Album (David Sedaris, Raleigh native), Best Folk Album (two nominees: Dom Flemons, co-founder of Carolina Chocolate Drops, and Samuel Ervin Beam, lives in Chapel Hill), and Best Metal Performance (Between the Buried and Me band members Dustie Waring and Blake Richardson, Forsyth County natives).
