NEWS BRIEFING

El Nino fades so forecasters expect busier hurricane season Government meteorologists say this year’s hurricane season may be busier than initially expected now that summer’s weak El Nino has faded away. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center said Thursday the Atlantic season looks more active than normal as peak hurricane season begins. Forecasters now expect 10 to 17 named storms, with five to nine hurricanes and two to four major ones. In May, they forecast a normal season, one or two fewer named storms and hurricanes. Forecaster Gerry Bell says the end of El Nino means more hospitable hurricane conditions. El Nino is the periodic warming of parts of the Pacific that affects weather worldwide and dampens storm activity.

US budget deficit grows 27% through July The U.S. government’s budget deficit rose by $183 billion to $867 billion during the first 10 months of this budget year as spending grew more than twice as fast as tax collections. The Treasury Department say the deficit for the current fiscal year through July is up 27% from the same period a year earlier. Spending rose 8% to $3.73 trillion, and tax revenue rose 3% to $2.86 trillion. Higher federal discretionary program spending over the past two years and the $1.5 trillion tax cut have contributed to the rising gap between what the federal government spends and what it takes in. The Congressional Budget Office expects the deficit to begin exceeding $1 trillion a year in 2022.

Hybrid deal brings State Health Plan fight to an end By A.P. Dillon North State Journal RALEIGH — Last week, State Treasurer Dale Folwell and Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) signaled an end to the fight over the changes to the State Health Plan by announcing a hybrid plan letting major hospitals and care systems operate as in-network facilities. The State Health Plan’s network for 2020 will consist of Blue Options Network and the new North Carolina State Health Plan Network. Under the hybrid plan, health care providers that failed to sign up by the Aug. 5 deadline to Folwell’s Clear Pricing Plan will be allowed to keep their existing agreements with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.  According to a press release, the two network options combined will consist of more than 68,000 providers. Members of the State Health Plan can still use their provider network and will have access to new providers that were not previously part of the Blue Options Network. “We look forward to working with Treasurer Folwell and the State Health Plan to implement these changes and ensuring that teachers and state employees have uninterrupted access to quality care,” said Patrick Conway, MD, Blue Cross NC President and CEO. “The Clear Pricing Project is just the beginning. I appreciate that 28,000 providers — independent primary care providers, behavioral health providers, independent provider networks and the 5 courageous hospitals — have chosen to provide care to those who serve in state government,” said Treasurer Folwell. “These medical providers should be applauded.” See FOLWELL, page A2

Duke Energy application points finger at solar for increased pollution By Dan E. Way For the North State Journal RALEIGH — A seven-month investigation and numerous public information requests have revealed the move to increase solar power might be leading to an increase in the very emissions alternative energy sources aim to reduce. Duke spokeswoman Kim Crawford confirmed that increased solar power on the state’s electric grid is increasing emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx), a dangerous air pollutant. She said that reductions in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions could also reverse if current solar growth continues without policy changes. Climate advocates blame increases in manmade gases like CO2 for global warming and have promoted solar power as environmentally clean. An increase in emissions triggers the need to rethink national energy policy, experts say. Crawford provided measurements showing that even on sunny days — when solar power is at its maximum output — more NOx pollution is released into the air than would occur if no solar electricity were used and natural gas were used instead. That’s because traditional power plants — including cleaner burning natural gas plants — must scale back electric generation to accommodate solar energy surging onto the system when the sun rises, and power back up when the sun sets and solar energy dissipates. That starting and stopping reduces efficiency and incapacitates emission control devices, increasing pollutant levels. On other days solar energy is erratic and can result in more frequent cycling of reserve sources, further decreasing power plant efficiency. This increased cycling can result in increased emissions and undue wear and tear on the expensive equipment. Duke’s data create new questions for policymakers and regulators in North Carolina. The state had 4,491 megawatts (MWs) of installed solar capacity in the second quarter of 2018, second only to California. Under current law, that is expected to jump to 6,800 MW by 2025 in Duke Energy’s Carolinas and Progress regions. Renewable energy advocates insist solar energy could replace fossil fuel-burning power plants to combat climate change. North Carolina created taxpayer-funded subsidies to support solar growth. Federal

law mandates guaranteed government contracts to purchase solar power. North Carolina’s interpretation of that law gave incentives to solar operators and the state has issued 60% of the nation’s contracts under that federal mandate. “After committing $2 billion in tax credits, and more than $1 billion in electricity overpayments for solar power, we now learn from Duke that nitrogen oxides have actually increased, and that CO2 may be headed in the wrong direction,” said Donald van der Vaart, former secretary of the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality and State Energy Policy Advisor in the McCrory administration. “This should shock everyone responsible for North Carolina’s air quality, and the nation’s energy policy,” van der Vaart said. “This issue deserves a re-look, and it needs to be done fast,” Dan Kish, distinguished senior fellow at the Institute for Energy Research, said after reviewing Duke’s data. “It’s great for the Wall Street fiSee DUKE ENERGY, page A2

DUKE ENERGY from page A1 nanciers, and those in it to make a fast buck while the sun shines, but it’s leaving us with an increasingly unstable grid and externalities such as more pollution,” Kish said. “The regulators have to remember that their job is to make sure that quick buck artists don’t pick the pockets of consumers and leave them with a weaker, less resilient grid.” Steve Goreham, a policy advisor to the Heartland Institute who writes and lectures on energy, climate, and pollution, thinks Duke’s evidence bears deeper scrutiny by policymakers. It is the first instance he is aware of in which a utility revealed internal data showing solar energy increases harmful emissions from gas-fired backup generators. “Typically this kind of stuff doesn’t go public,” Goreham said. “It’s hard to get data on this.” Goreham said studies in Colorado and The Netherlands concluded that adding wind power to the electric grid increased CO2 emissions. He and Kish said it makes sense those same principles would apply to solar energy. Not everyone agrees. A 2013 report by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and other researchers concluded CO2 emissions are negligible when wind and solar are added to the electric grid. NOx emissions might be reduced slightly more than expected, but sulfur dioxide pollutants could increase. That study relied on computer simulations and hypothetical scenarios, while Duke’s numbers are based on recorded data from fullscale operations. Duke is attempting to mitigate the situation. In response to public records requests, DEQ released documents showing Duke is seeking revisions to its air quality permits. Duke wants regulators to relax restrictions at several of its power plants to handle the surge of solar growth. It’s unclear how long the state Department of Environmental Quality has known about the solar-linked pollution, why it’s been allowed to persist, and why lawmakers and the public have not been informed solar energy increases NOx emissions. DEQ spokeswoman Sharon Martin said it would be premature to comment while Duke’s applications are under review. Utility officials pitched the plan to state environmental regulators at an Aug. 23, 2018, preapplication meeting. Crawford said Duke filed formal applications on March 26 of this year. Despite repeat inquiries about the status of the applications, DEQ did not provide copies until June. Under its current permits in the heavily regulated market, Duke must completely shut down the backup combustion turbines when solar peaks under a full sun, then restart them when the sun recedes. Duke wants DEQ to issue new permits allowing combustion turbines to throttle up and down from a “low load” idling operation instead of switching completely off and on as solar waxes and wanes. In its permit applications

Excerpt from Duke Energy preapplication packet delivered to the N.C. Division of Air Quality. Duke said that would lower pollutant emissions and reduce stress on equipment. In a series of e-mail exchanges for this article, Crawford provided information from a team of Duke subject matter experts confirming NOx emissions would be lower if there were no solar power on the electric grid. Without any solar power in the mix, “a typical combined cycle combustion turbine emits NOx at approximately 9-11 lb/hr, assuming 24 hours of ‘normal’ operation,” Crawford said. That is equivalent to 264 pounds of NOx emissions daily. When those same plants are operated to supplement solar power facilities, daily emissions more than double to 624 pounds a day, based on a table in Duke’s application. If DEQ agrees to Duke’s alternative operating scenario, a combustion turbine would emit 381 pounds of NOx daily — still 44% more pollution than operating without any solar power on the grid. “In seeking to amend their permits, Duke is doing the best they can given the solar mandates in North Carolina,” Van der Vaart said. The American Lung Association warns NOx can cause asthma in children and respiratory problems in vulnerable populations. NOx also contributes to the formation of ozone, smog and acid rain.

Nitrogen oxides are one of six pollutants for which national air quality standards under the Clean Air Act were created. The EPA recently imposed a $14.7 billion national settlement on automaker Volkswagen for producing vehicles that exceeded NOx emission limits. DEQ is the lead state agency developing a North Carolina mitigation plan with $92 million from the VW consent decree. The data on carbon dioxide emissions from Duke is less certain the NOx figures. “We expect a slight increase in CO2 emissions at the plant level from turndown versus shutting down and restarting,” Crawford said. In general, she said, increasing solar generation tends to decrease CO2 emissions if nuclear generation and other factors remain constant. “As the amount of solar generation increases, however, this effect will diminish and could reverse at some point due to decreasing room for more efficient generation,” said Crawford. More lower efficiency generators, designed for short cycles, could ultimately be used to provide contingency power for intermittent solar, according to Crawford. She cited studies that concluded utilities must cut solar power off from the electric grid more frequently as solar production ex-

pands. That’s because more electricity is produced than can be used or exported to other states. North Carolina law does not allow utilities to shut off solar power when it’s not needed, with a few minor exceptions. Crawford said if Duke does not win approval of its permit modifications to allow combustion turbines to idle instead of turning off, the utility is left with only two viable options to deal with growing solar generation. It could export excess energy to other regions, but transmission capabilities are limited. Alternatively, Duke could dial down nuclear generation, but doing so would increase CO2 emissions. Crawford said that “it’s possible that nuclear generation could be impacted by solar; however, we cannot say that definitively at this point.” Kish said if utilities take nuclear plants offline to accommodate solar energy it would reverse previous reductions of CO2 emissions, and wreck the economics of the grid. “Renewable energy sounds good, but it performs terribly. If you want electricity available when you need it, you don’t want intermittent, unreliable, renewable energy,” Kish said. “It’s like a cancer on an efficient grid, with its ups-and-downs forcing other sources to pick up the slack in the most inefficient ways, which, in some cases, are more polluting.”

State Treasurer Dale Folwell speaks at a Council of State meeting in Raleigh.

FOLWELL from page A1 Blue Cross Blue Shield will continue to administer the state insurance plan, which covers over 720,000 state employees. The treasurer’s office has said Clear Pricing will provide savings to taxpayers who already fund the State Health Plan to the tune of $166 million a year. The full costs of the plan are rough-

ly $3.4 billion annually. Members of the plan would save another $34 million, according to the treasurer’s office. The hybrid plan announcement comes after Folwell altered his original offer and re-opened enrollment last month. Folwell said last month that the proposal in July was a “final offer” and would give hospitals $116 million more than previously offered.

The July revised plan increased payouts to medical providers from 182 to 196 percent of Medicare, and combined inpatient/outpatient ratios for urban hospitals were increased from 178 to 200 percent of Medicare. Despite the increased rate, Folwell said that 600-700 providers came on board but only one hospital signed up by the Aug. 5 deadline. Folwell says the nearly

28,000 who have joined the plan is “a start” and that he thinks momentum from people upset with excessive drug and medical costs will propel future change. In the statement announcing the final hybrid plan, Folwell slammed hospitals for “cartel-like tactics” by spending millions to oppose lowered costs and more transparent pricing. “If big hospitals could do this

to their largest customer, just think what they can do to the individual average citizen or business,” said Folwell. Folwell continued, saying, “We’re in a medical arms race in North Carolina. Every dollar unnecessarily or inefficiently spent on health care is a dollar that can never be spent on education and other core functions of government.”

NC House Dems deliver letter pledging to block budget veto override By David Larson North State Journal RALEIGH — After more than a month of waiting for the other side to flinch in budget negotiations, Minority Leader Darren Jackson (D-Wake) delivered a letter to Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Eden) and Speaker Tim Moore (R-Kings Mountain) saying he has 51 signatures from House Democrats who pledge not to break with the party to override Gov. Cooper’s veto of the Republican budget. A tweet from Jackson with images of the letter said, “The votes are not there for an override. Not in July. Not in August. They won’t be there in October. It’s time to negotiate.” Republicans say there is no way to negotiate with Cooper as long as he clings to a Medicaid-expansion-or-nothing ultimatum. Democrats insist that it is the Republicans who are giving an ultimatum because they will not agree to include Medicaid expansion in the budget discussions. A budget was supposed to be enacted by the time the current fiscal year began July 1, but Cooper vetoed the legislature’s plan a few days earlier, citing the pres-

ence of corporate tax cuts and smaller-than-desired teacher pay raises and the absence of Medicaid expansion. Unlike the previous six years, Republican majorities in the House and Senate are no longer veto-proof — meaning they need Democratic help to overcome whatever Cooper blocks. Moore and other Republicans have been promoting local initiatives in the two-year spending plan by traveling to districts where Democrat lawmakers haven’t fully committed to upholding the veto. He needs to convince seven Democrats to cross the aisle despite all but four having signed the pledge. “I’m going to continue to try to convince Democrats that this is a great budget that they should vote for,” Moore said. He said the fact that four Democrats didn’t put their name to the letter is a sign “there actually is some bipartisan support for the override.” On Twitter, Cooper’s communications director Sadie Weiner and the “Senator Berger Press Shop” account traded comments on where the blame for the impasse lies. “This is getting exhausting,” Berger’s press account tweeted, “The Governor will not sign any

budget unless the legislature first passes Medicaid expansion. He has said so repeatedly. It’s awfully difficult to negotiate when the Governor won’t sign the final product no matter what.” Cooper has been holding his own made-for-media discussions to press his case for expanding Medicaid. He visited a child care center in Shelby on Thursday. Cooper has said expansion will help improve health care for mothers who are child care workers, which in turn will benefit the workers’ own children. He is counting on the fact that enough legislative Democrats agree with this mission and will not yield to Republican promises for budget items in their home districts. “We are committed to sustaining Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget,” the Aug. 7 letter from House Democrats reads. “The votes are not there to override and staying in session for weeks waiting for Democrats to miss votes because of illness or family and work obligations is a waste of taxpayer dollars and disrespectful to the voters who elected Gov. Cooper and this more balanced General Assembly.” Continuing the competing statewide events, Berger and Moore will traveled to Guilford County Aug. 13 to hold an event at North Carolina A&T State University with lawmakers to “promote a $36 million budget investment into capital projects, doctoral programs, and research grants on the campus in Greensboro, N.C.” Associated Press contributed to this article.

NEW YORK — The details of how Jeffrey Epstein died in his Manhattan jail cell over the weekend have yet to be released, but medical officials have performed an autopsy on the high-profile inmate accused of sexually abusing underage girls. Epstein’s abrupt death Saturday cut short a criminal prosecution that could have pulled back the curtain on the inner workings of a high-flying financier with connections to celebrities and presidents, though prosecutors have vowed to continue investigating. Epstein, 66, had been denied bail and faced up to 45 years behind bars on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges unsealed last month. He had pleaded not guilty and was awaiting trial. New York City’s chief medical examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson said in a statement that the autopsy on Epstein was performed Sunday. She did not release a determination, saying it was “pending further information.” Sampson said a federal prosecutor was aware that she allowed a private pathologist, Dr. Michael Baden, to observe the examination at the request of Epstein’s lawyers. “This is routine practice,” she said. The manner in which Epstein died remains a mystery, but guards on his unit were working extreme overtime shifts to make up for staffing shortages the morning of his apparent suicide, a person familiar with the jail’s operations told The Associated Press. The person said that the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s Special Housing Unit was staffed with one guard working a fifth-straight day of overtime and another who was working mandatory overtime. The person wasn’t authorized to discuss jail operations publicly and spoke Sunday on the condition of anonymity. Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found a little over two weeks ago with bruis-

ing on his neck, according to the person familiar with the matter. But he was taken off the watch at the end of July and therefore wasn’t on it at the time of his death, the person said. Epstein’s removal from suicide watch would have been approved by both the warden of the jail and the facility’s chief psychologist, said Jack Donson, a former prison official who worked for the Bureau of Prisons for more than two decades. Attorney General William Barr said Monday the Justice Department has already found “serious irregularities” at the Manhattan jail where Epstein was being held, adding that the facility “failed to adequately secure this prisoner.” Barr also issued a stern warning, saying the case was far from over and that anyone who may have conspired with Epstein “should not rest easy.” Epstein’s July 6 arrest drew national attention, particularly focusing on a deal that allowed him to plead guilty in 2008 to soliciting a minor for prostitution in Florida and avoid more serious federal charges. His lawyers maintained that the new charges in New York were covered by the 2008 plea deal and that Epstein hadn’t had any illicit contact with underage girls since serving his 13-month sentence in Florida. The federal investigation into the allegations remains ongoing, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said. He noted in a statement Saturday that the indictment against Epstein includes a conspiracy charge, suggesting others could face charges in the case. U.S. authorities have said Epstein also had a residence in Paris and used a fake Austrian passport to travel to France in the 1980s. The French government called for prosecutors to open an investigation into Epstein’s links to France, with the secretaries of state for women’s rights and protecting children releasing a statement Monday.

Cooper appoints Circosta to Board of Elections after Cordle resignation By A.P. Dillon North State Journal RALEIGH — Gov. Roy Cooper has appointed Damon Circosta, the executive director and vice president of the AJ Fletcher Foundation, to fill the void left by the resignation of North Carolina State Board of Elections (NCSBE) chairman Bob Cordle. “Every election is important, but there has never been a better time in our state to put voters first. I appreciate the faith Governor Cooper has put in me to carry out this important role,” said Circosta in a statement issued by the NCSBE. “I look forward to working with the State and County Boards of Elections to ensure elections are secure and that voters have confidence in the process.” On Tuesday Aug. 13, the board voted 5-0 to make Circosta the new elections board chair. All four of Cooper’s appointments have been Democrats. Circosta, who now is a registered Democrat, had previously served on the board in 2018 as an unaffiliated member. At the time Circosta served, the board consisted of nine members, but that configuration was struck down as unconstitutional and was replaced by a five-member board. Three of the five positions are now held by Democrats. Sen. Ralph Hise (R-Mitchell) issued a statement critical of Cooper’s pick as a partisan political move. “Governor Cooper isn’t even pretending that he cares about good government. By appointing Damon Circosta to the Board today as the tie-breaking Democrat, he’s admitting that his previous appointment of Circosta as an ‘unaffiliated’ member was a sham,” said Hise, the co-chair of the Senate Redistricting and Elections Committee. Circosta is the fourth state elections board chair appointed since December 2018. Circosta’s prede-

cessor, Bob Cordle, was appointed by Gov. Cooper to replace Joshua Malcolm in late January. Former NCSBE chairman Bob Cordle resigned on July 29 after the news broke that he had told a sexually-suggestive “Welsh Cow” joke at a conference which women are compared to cows. While chair, Cordle notably led efforts to oust former elections director Kim Strach and hire Karen Brinson Bell, a Democrat and former elections director in Transylvania County. Cordle’s swift departure left the board in a tight spot, as the agency is in the middle of deciding whether new voting machines should be required to furnish a paper printout so voters can read and confirm their ballots. One-third of North Carolina’s 100 counties must replace their current touch-screen voting machines after this year’s elections. The counties buy the machines but only from those vendors approved by the state Elections Board. The decision on the paper records may determine which vendors are eligible. Malcolm resigned from the board after it came to light that prior to the 2018 election, he had been in frequent contact with Jens Lutz, the Democratic Bladen County Board of Elections member and former consulting partner of accused ballot harvester McRae Dowless. Malcolm had been tapped to replace Andy Penry, who was forced to resign after anti-Trump tweets and tweets attacking other Republicans made by Penry surfaced. Penry’s tweets included calling President Trump a “despicable human being,” mocking Congressman George Holding’s appearance and attacking various Republican officials and voters. The NC GOP filed a complaint on Nov. 28 demanding Penry’s removal over the partisan tweets, which the complaint argued violated state law. Penry resigned days later on Dec. 1, 2018.

Cooper signs order on firearm safety

August is peachy

The Associated Press GREENSBORO — Gov. Roy Cooper has signed an executive directive to have its top law enforcement agency train local law enforcement agencies on threat assessment and to improve the quality of information that the state provides for background checks for firearm purchases. Cooper announced the changes on Monday at a school safety summit in Greensboro. He says in a news release

that an inventory by the State Bureau of Investigation last year found over 284,000 instances of criminal convictions that weren’t reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. The order directs the SBI to continue to identify gaps in reporting criminal convictions. It also directs the SBI to provide behavioral threat assessment training to local law enforcement agencies. The directive also includes orders on suicide and firearms storage.

August is national peach month. While peak season for N.C. peaches is in July, mid-season and late-season varieties are available from Murphy to Manteo through the end of August. North Carolina growers produce as many as 70 different varieties, each with its own unique flavor. As of the most recent USDA Agriculture Census in 2017, North Carolina produced 2,600 tons of peaches on 930 acres, worth over $4 million in revenue. Although the Sandhills region is known for peach production, consumers can find growers across the state with 68 counties having at least one commercial peach grower. Counties with registered N.C.

Grand jury indicts mother’s boyfriend in baby’s death

Man arrested with pellet gun at Walmart Wilkes County Wilkesboro Police say no shots were fired and nobody was hurt when a man with a pellet gun threatened customers inside a Walmart. Officers arrested 29-year-old Jimmy Roger Minton. Minton’s mother called first, reporting a dispute involving a knife in the parking lot. He then ran into a sporting goods store and pointed the lookalike gun at an officer before escaping into the Walmart. Minton is charged with assault, larceny, possession of stolen goods, resisting an officer and communicating threats.

Haywood County Dylan Brian Green, 22, has been charged in the death of his girlfriend’s 10-monthold baby. Green was indicted on a charge of felony intentional child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury. The Haywood County Sheriff’s Office says preliminary autopsy findings indicate the July 18 death of Chloe Evans was a homicide. Green was at a home with Evans when deputies responded to a call of an infant in cardiac arrest. First responders reported seeing several injuries on the child. Evans was taken to a hospital where she died hours later.

School back in session two weeks early Avery County Schools in Newland and elsewhere around Avery County were back in session on Aug. 7, two weeks earlier than usual. Officials changed the calendar after winter weather forced the cancellation of 12 school days last year, pushing final exams into the next semester. The school district hopes the extra time will prevent that from happening. Assuming there are no cancellations, the school year could end in May. WBTV

Man arrested in 1980 rape, murder of teenager Surry County Authorities say a man arrested for the 1980 rape and murder of a teenager had been questioned several times over the course of the investigation. Robert James Adkins, 62, of Dobson was arrested on charges of raping and killing 14-year-old Ronda Blaylock. Her body was found in Surry County on Aug. 29, 1980, three days after she and a friend voluntarily got into a truck for a ride.

Lee County Lee County Deputy Manuel Torres is suing over his firing, saying he lost his job because his religious beliefs prevented him from training a woman. The lawsuit says the 51-year-old Torres believes the Bible prohibits him from being alone with a woman who’s not his wife for extended periods of time. It says he requested a religious accommodation in July 2017 when he was told to train a female deputy. He was fired about two months later. AP

Cumberland County Federal authorities have charged Bryan Craig Allen, a soldier formerly stationed at Fort Bragg, with theft of military property, conspiracy and aggravated identity theft. Prosecutors say Allen used his position as a chief warrant officer and property book officer for the 4th Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group to delete items from inventory lists, stealing more than $2 million in property from December 2016 through June 2018, including 43 enhanced night vision goggles. Court documents suggest that Allen sold them to the owner of a Fayetteville military surplus store.

Sampson County Federal prosecutors say two men were sentenced in separate cases to seven years or more in prison for distributing drugs. Miguel Angel Gierbolini was sentenced to seven years in prison after previously pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and heroin. Authorities say he was part of a group of traffickers that shipped cocaine worth approximately $3.5 million to Cumberland and Sampson counties. In a separate case, Stanley Jamar Ragin was sentenced to eight years after previously pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute heroin in the Fayetteville area.

7 cats die in blaze at animal hospital Lawsuit: Deputy fired for not training woman due to faith

McDowell County A fatal shooting last month on Montford Cove Road was a result of self defense, McDowell County Sheriff’s Office officials confirmed. James Robert Eller, 39, of Nebo was shot to death in a vehicle by Carl Lee Freeburg, 36. The police investigation found that Eller was attempting to rob Freeburg, using a replica handgun. No criminal charges will be filed in connection with the shooting

Moore County Asheboro police said in a news release that 37-year-old Gilberto Pulido Rivas, of Robbins, was arrested Sunday on charges including attempted murder, possession of a firearm by felon, shooting into an occupied dwelling and cocaine possession. One person was grazed by a bullet and had an arm abrasion in the shooting at Rey Azteca Event Center. No other injuries were reported.

Durham County A fire at a Durham animal hospital killed 7 cats, while 14 dogs and an iguana were able to be rescued. The Durham Fire Department responded to an alert of a burglary alarm going off at the hospital Tuesday night and arrived to find the building on fire.

$5,000 reward offered in pet neglect case

Hurricane-damaged housing authority finally has new home Craven County The staff of the New Bern Housing Authority should be working out of its new office by Monday. Its former office was damaged beyond repair by flooding from Hurricane Florence almost a year ago. The authority has worked out of a makeshift space since the storm. The old office at Trent Court was located in a floodplain and was beyond repair after water came up 58 inches at the office and caused “incredible” mold. AP

Northampton County PETA and the Northampton County Sheriff’s Office were alerted to a female dog found swimming in circles in Lake Gaston. Deputy The dog, who seemed to be a senior black Labrador retriever, was missing most of her fur, had several tumors hanging from her abdomen, and had a puncture wound on her right side. Because of her age and condition, she had to be euthanized. PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information on the person or persons responsible for the evident neglect.

Newby nearly triples Beasley in early fundraising NSJ staff RALEIGH — Conservative Justice Paul Newby had a strong first half of fundraising and has over $200,000 more cash on hand than current Chief Justice Cheri Beasley, his 2020 opponent for the state’s top judicial seat. Since Jan. 1, Newby has collected over 860 individual contributions totaling over $307,000. In that same timeframe, Beasley, who was appointed to the chief justice position by Gov. Roy Cooper after Republican Chief Justice Mark Martin resigned, raised $115,428 from 404 individual donations. Newby and Beasley took in most of their receipts from North Carolina donors. Newby had zero out of state donations while Beasley had four, totaling $1,800. By comparison, the last Supreme Court contest, between Barbara Jackson and Anita Earls, at the 2017 mid-year point, Earls had not yet entered the race and Jackson had raised just $40,000.

and outraised Jackson $1.6 million to $442,000 by the end of the race. In 2015, then-Justice Bob Edmunds raised $52,000 at the mid-year reporting deadline compared to $40,000 for his challenger, and the eventual winner, Mike Morgan. In the other two Supreme Court races, Democrats led their Republican opponents by wide margins. Judge Lucy Inman (D), who currently sits on the Court of Appeals, raised $285,000 with $255,000 cash on hand against her colleague on the appeals bench, Phil Berger Jr. (R), who raised $28,000 and had $27,000 in cash on hand. In the other associate justice race, Democrat Mark Davis, who was appointed by Gov. Cooper to fill the seat vacated by Beasley when she was elevated to chief justice, raised over $238,000 and had cash on hand of $243,000 versus former state senator Tamara Barringer who raised $41,000 from individual contributions. Barringer had $110,000 in cash on hand after her husband loaned her campaign $60,000.

Stock market jitters? Remembering a stock market earthquake

If we can keep the socialists from destroying the American dream, the stock market could grow 10 times more to get to the 270,000 level by 2049.

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WRINGING their hands over the past several weeks about the volatility in the market, especially the day when the stock market fell over 800 points on Aug. 5. Many attributed it to President Trump trying to force the Chinese to play by fair rules in international commerce. The 3% dip in the stock market was a sign to them that he doesn’t know what he is doing and is just costing a lot of us a lot of money with his incompetence. The 3% drop last week was a jitter. If you really want to know what a stock market crash looked like, Black Monday, Oct. 19, 1987, was an 8.6 earthquake by comparison. Early that morning, most of the Republicans in Congress who played golf showed up to play in an annual fundraising event, the Bob Michel golf tournament, to raise money for the next campaign. We were scheduled to tee off in a shotgun start around 9:40 a.m. Former Congressman Alex McMillan and I were in the same foursome with the chief legislative counsel for the Securities Industry Association, Jack O’Rourke, one the smartest and best lobbyists I ever met in Washington. Jack met us on the first tee with a somber look on his face. “The stock market opened down 100 points” he said. Congressman McMillan, a former investment banker and chief executive officer for Harris Teeter Supermarkets, tried to calm Jack down and said, “Probably just a temporary dip, Jack. The market will probably recover by the time we make the turn.” It didn’t. By the time we made it to the clubhouse after the front nine, we found out the market was down 300 points. “It will probably recover by the end of the round” everyone at the clubhouse said in unison as they ordered food and drinks for the back nine. Two jets were flying overhead across a beautiful clear deep powder blue autumn sky as we putted out on the 18th hole. While we all shook hands after the round, Congressman McMillan

ruminated out loud, “Well, Jack, it looks like there are jets still flying out of Dulles Airport and I don’t see a mushroom cloud over Washington, D.C., so it must not have been quite the catastrophe we all were worried about.” The stock market closed down that day 508 points. It had plummeted 22.61% from the previous day’s close of 2246.74 to 1,738.74 in one day. Counting the 9% loss during the previous week, the market had fallen over 31% in a week. There was a palpable sense of doom in the clubhouse after the round. No loud bragging about their game, no celebration of the winners. There was more straight whiskey being consumed without mixers or ice cubes than anyone could remember at any event in recent memory. As horrific as Black Monday was, and despite the fact that from 2008 to 2010, we suffered through the worst recession since the Great Depression; we experienced the largest attack on American soil on Sept. 11, 2001, since Pearl Harbor and a myriad of economic stresses domestically and overseas since 1987, the market is now trading at levels 10 times higher than Black Monday. If we can keep the socialists from destroying the American dream, the stock market could grow 10 times more to get to the 270,000 level by 2049. President Trump may be unconventional, but he is addressing serious unfair trade practices by the Chinese government for the past 40 years and trying to help American businesses and workers regain what is rightly theirs. Suffering through several days of relatively minor stock market volatility by comparison to Black Monday in order to rectify the trade imbalance and injustice with China seems to be a small price to pay.

Democratic congressman, presidential candidate endorse publishing GOP private donor enemies lists

This is a fabulous precedent to set. We need a list like this for NC donors.

LAST WEEK, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) published to his Twitter account a list of 44 names of people who had made the maximum donation to President Trump’s reelection campaign. “Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders,’” Castro asserted in his tweet. The donors were from Castro’s congressional district. “This is WRONG,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) condemned in response. “Elected representatives should not be vilifying & doxxing their own constituents.” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who survived a June 2017 assassination attempt by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter who specifically targeted and opened fire on a baseball field full of Congressional Republicans and staffers, also pushed back on Castro’s actions. “People should not be personally targeted for their political views. Period. This isn’t a game. It’s dangerous, and lives are at stake. I know this firsthand,” Scalise tweeted. At least one prominent North Carolina Democrat, Durham’s Mayor Pro Tem Jillian Johnson, endorsed Castro’s efforts, saying the same needs to be done here in North Carolina. “This is a fabulous precedent to set,” Johnson tweeted the day after Castro’s tweet. “We need a list like this for NC donors.” Castro’s defenders were quick to point out the information was publicly available through the FEC, but that misses an important point. As columnist David Harsanyi wrote in the aftermath of Castro publishing the list, “For one thing, campaign finance laws are meant to keep politicians honest, not to be used as ‘enemies’ lists by politicians.” Castro, who is the chairman of his twin brother Julián’s presidential campaign, said his intent was not for people to harass or target anyone on the list (which is already happening). His justification, he claimed, was to get the donors to “think twice” about who and what they are supporting. Castro’s excuses are insults to everyone’s intelligence. He put the list out just two days after the horrific mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, that left 22 dead and dozens more injured.

Debates about how political rhetoric allegedly “inspires” deranged people to commit acts of mass murder were at a fever pitch that same weekend, with almost all who talked about it imploring politicians — namely Republicans — to “tone down” their rhetoric. Only the willingly deluded could possibly believe Castro didn’t intend to incite people to boycott, harass and target those he’d named two days after what happened in El Paso. Not long after he went public with the list, a conservative new media outlet reported that several names on his list were former donors to past political campaigns of both Castro brothers, suggesting a revenge motive may also have been at play in the posting of the names. To make matters worse, his brother and presidential candidate Julián defended Joaquin’s actions by using the same excuse, that the information was publicly available. Members of the national press have pointed this out as well. So, unfortunately, we can’t count on them to hold the Castro brothers accountable. There are two reasons for this. For starters, the national media don’t want to lose their access to public donor records via reformed transparency laws that would better protect donor privacy. And perhaps more importantly, they want to protect Democrats. Both reasons are purely self-serving, of course, and are at odds with the more important issue of their duty to critically examine an elected official’s stated rationale for publishing enemies lists of private donors. I guess if something bad happens to any of these Trump donors as a result of Castro’s actions, their distraught family members are supposed to feel better because of the disingenuous justifications given for posting them. As the Castros, other Democrats and the mainstream media have helpfully reminded us, the information was “publicly available” and “legal” to publish or something.

COLUMN | ANDREW BURNS

Mr. Drysdale’s nightmare

In Europe, depositors increasingly have to pay their banks to hold deposits. Although not a direct analogy, negative interest rates are on par with paying someone to rent your car.

MY FAVORITE TV show in the 1960s was “The Beverly Hillbillies.” Although silly and hilarious, a recurring theme was what I call “Mr. Drysdale’s Nightmare” which relates to current investment markets. In the show, yokels Jed Clampett and his motherin-law Daisy May Moses (Granny) became sudden millionaires and moved from the Ozarks to Beverly Hills where they deposited their fortune in the local Commerce Bank — Milburn Drysdale’s bank. From time to time, and unannounced, Jed and Granny would show up at the bank asking to see their money … they wanted to count it. Mr. Drysdale would fluster and panic. As a 10-year-old watching the show, I confess to having not understood then what the fuss was about. I sided with Jed and Granny and thought Mr. Drysdale should have showed them their cash. What financially aware adults understood when watching the show was that banks lend or invest most deposits, keeping just a portion in cash on hand for routine daily withdrawals. In effect, what the Clampetts were doing was causing a “run” on Mr. Drysdale’s bank. In many respects, Mr. Drysdale’s deposit woes are similar to why portions of the global bond markets are so screwy right now with interest rates at rock-bottom levels or, shockingly for trillions of global bonds, in negative territory. That’s right; in Europe depositors increasingly have to pay their banks to hold deposits. Although not a direct analogy, negative interest rates are on par with paying someone to rent your car. Consider Germany’s Deutsche Bank, one of the most leveraged dark holes of incalculable risk in modern history. With its name all over the 2008 mortgage crisis, the LIBOR scandal of 2015 and numerous other questionable associations, the bank is slowly unwinding. Close to 18,000 employees are being laid off and the stock has traded off some 92% from its high in 2007. Its 1.4€ trillion in assets are backed by a scant market value of its common equity of roughly 14.2€ billion, or a cushion of just 1%. Rather than face another 2008 meltdown, Germany and the European Central Bank are thus far handling the Deutsche Bank contraction with guarantees and care — helped by super low interest rates. Let’s hope the proverbial Jed and Granny don’t darken Deutsche Bank’s door because one-quarter of the bank’s liabilities are deposits that can be demanded at any time — which in a panic could be problematic.

BEN SHAPIRO

Why can’t we unify in the face of evil? CC

Beyond Deutsche Bank, Europe worries because they are, generally, not “out of the woods” yet with relation to the 2008 financial crisis. The European Central Bank is trying to promote economic growth with monetary policy while member countries resist sufficient structural economic reforms. An example where labor markets need reconstituting is France where youth unemployment is 20% while the overall rate is 8.7%. Things are worse in Italy, Spain and Greece. By comparison, American labor markets are far more open so our youth unemployment is 8.3% versus our overall 3.7% rate. Historically, investors could count on signals from the bond market to help guide allocation decisions. Sadly, the degree of central bank meddling among all major economies, including China, USA, Europe and Japan, has created monetary distortions that make no sense unless you are a politician looking for economic growth (and votes) at any cost. For the time being, a wise investment strategy now might be to seek quality and avoid debt-laden countries and companies. As for Mr. Drysdale, Granny once said of him: “He won’t give me my money! He’s been slippery-footin’ around here like a hog on ice. If you ask me, he ain’t got it.” Source: FactSet data as of August 6, 2019.

Re-segregation and charter schools: Setting the record straight Recently, NC SPIN featured an article in which Tom Campbell claimed North Carolina’s public charter schools are contributing to the resegregation of our state’s schools.

THE USE of the emotionally charged word segregation is misleading and deflects attention away from the positive contribution our charter schools are making to the educational landscape. There is a tremendous difference between choice and forced segregation. Charter schools transcend boundary zones where for many families the amount of money they are able to spend on the purchase of a home translates into the quality of their children’s schools. Charter schools are public schools, open to all, and they’re built to give every child an opportunity for a great education at the school where they can learn best, no matter their ZIP code. Although perception is reality, numbers don’t lie. According to the 2017-2018 Charter Schools Annual Report, the percentage of white students in charter schools and district schools is virtually the same. Also, the number of charter schools serving students of color is similar to district schools with charter schools enrolling slightly more black students than their district counterparts. Further, the percentage of students with disabilities is similar as well with 10.3% of charter schools’ students being served compared to 12.2% of district students. Some charter schools choose to provide student transportation, an option afforded them by law. It is important to note that, due to their small size, many

charter schools just don’t have the infrastructure that district school systems enjoy. For example, in a district, there may be a team of employees whose jobs are directly related to transportation only, whereas in some charter schools a single administrator must oversee all aspects of school management with instructional leadership being most important. However, if the General Assembly were to mandate that charter schools must provide transportation, then district schools should be held to the ultimate accountability charter school leaders and boards face every day: school closure. Finally, the misguided notion of re-segregation deflects from the most important issue: a parent’s right to choose a high-quality school that meets the needs of their child. Parents of means have always had the ability to choose the best education available. Charter schools level the playing field because they give all families the right to choose. Not only that, but most Americans are in favor of charter schools. Perhaps it is because Americans value their right to choose in so many areas of life. Education should be no different. Rhonda Dillingham is the executive director of the North Carolina Association for Public Charter Schools.

THIS SHOULD BE EASY. We’re all on the same side. When a white supremacist terrorist shoots up a Walmart filled with innocents in El Paso, we should all be on the same side. We should be mourning together; we should be fighting together. Instead, we’re fighting one another. We’re fighting one another for one simple reason: Too many on the political left have become accustomed to castigating the character of those who disagree with the left on policy. Favor tougher border controls? This puts you on the side of the white supremacist terrorist. Believe in Second Amendment rights? You’re a vicious, violent cretin covering for those who commit acts of evil. Cite Western civilization as a source of our common values, believe that police forces across the United States are not systemically racist, favor smaller government intervention in the social sphere — in short, disagree with the program of the American left? Most of all, consider voting for Trump? You’re an accessory to murder. Now, there are many on the political left who are too smart for this sort of specious reasoning and character assassination. But not everyone. Charles Blow of The New York Times, for example, writes in a column this week that “terrorists” and “policymakers” are the two “sides of white nationalism.” Blow clarifies: “White nationalist terrorists — young and rash — and white nationalist policymakers — older and more methodical — live on parallel planes, both aiming in the same direction, both with the same goal: To maintain and ensure white dominance and white supremacy.” Who, pray tell, are these evil white nationalist policymakers? Those who favor “border walls, antiimmigrant laws, voter suppression and packing the courts.” Never mind that many advocates of border security also advocate for broader legal immigration. Never mind that nobody actually favors voter suppression. To Blow, an R next to your name signifies merely a less militant Nazism than your neighborhood Hitler Youth. David Leonhardt of The New York Times similarly argued this week that “American conservatism has a violence problem.” While admitting that conservative America “is mostly filled with honorable people who deplore violence and bear no responsibility for right-wing hate killings” and that “liberal America also has violent and deranged people,” Leonhardt lays the blame for an increase in political violence at the feet of “mainstream conservative politicians,” who are somehow connected to “right-wing extremists.” There’s something in the water at The New York Times, obviously. Jamelle Bouie, another voice on The Times opinion page, suggested a “connection between white nationalism” and my personal “ideological project.” Never mind that I’ve been perhaps the loudest voice on the right decrying white nationalism for years; that I firmly fight for particular Western civilized values and small-government conservatism that foreclose and despise racism; that I’ve incurred hundreds of thousands of dollars in security costs for my trouble; that I require 24/7 security to protect me from white nationalist blowback; and that just weeks ago, the FBI arrested a white nationalist threatening to murder me. Obviously, all conservatives are the same — and all are complicit in the mission of white supremacy. There can be no unity when one side of the political aisle firmly believes that the other side is motivated by unmitigated evil. No decent conversation about fixes can be had when you assume the person sitting across from you sympathizes with monsters who go to shoot up Hispanic Americans at a Walmart. If we can’t at least assume that we’re all on the same page in condemning white supremacist terror attacks and white supremacist ideology, we may as well pack this republic in. We’re done.

NATION & WORLD Parts of South and Midwest grapple with dangerous heat wave BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Forecasters are warning about days of scorching, dangerous heat gripping a wide swath of the U.S. South and Midwest, where the heat index on Monday eclipsed 120 degrees in Clarksdale, MS and climbed nearly that high in West Memphis, Arkansas. With temperatures around 100 degrees at midday and “feels like” temperatures soaring even higher, parts of 13 states were under heat advisories, from Texas, Louisiana and Florida in the South to Missouri and Illinois in the Midwest, the National Weather Service reported. “It feels like hell is what it feels like,” said Junae Brooks, who runs Junae’s Grocery in Holly Bluff, Mississippi.

US delays tariffs on some Chinese goods, drops others WASHINGTON D.C. — The United States is delaying tariffs on Chinese-made cellphones, laptop computers and other items and removing other Chinese imports from its target list altogether in a move that triggered a rally on Wall Street. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative said Tuesday that it is still planning to go ahead with 10% tariffs on about $300 billion in Chinese imports, extending the import taxes on just about everything China ships to the United States in a dispute over Beijing’s aggressive trade policies. Most of the levies are scheduled to kick in Sept. 1. But the agency says it would delay the tariffs to Dec. 15 on some goods, including cellphones, laptop computers, video game consoles, some toys, computer monitors, shoes and clothing. And it’s removing other items from the list based “on health, safety, national security and other factors.” The news sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average up more than 460 points in midmorning trading Tuesday. Separately, China’s Ministry of Commerce reported that top Chinese negotiators spoke by phone with their U.S. counterparts, Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and plan to talk again in two weeks.

Analysis shows 12% could vote without paper backup in 2020 WASHINGTON D.C. — More than one in 10 voters could cast ballots on paperless voting machines in the 2020 general election, according to a new analysis, leaving their ballots more vulnerable to hacking. A study released by the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law on Tuesday said there has been significant progress by states and the federal government since Russian agents targeted U.S. state election systems ahead of the 2016 presidential election, the analysis notes that many states have not taken all of the steps needed to ensure that doesn’t happen again. Using voter registration and turnout data, the Brennan Center estimates that as many as 12% of voters, or around 16 million people, will vote on paperless equipment in November 2020. Security experts have said that paperbased systems provide better security because they create a record that voters can review before casting their ballots and election workers can use them to audit results.

Honor guards march outside the government house where Argentine President Mauricio Macri, who is running for reelection, gave a press conference the day after primary elections in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Monday, Aug. 12, 2019.

Argentina’s Macri bashed as voters back predecessor’s ticket By Almudena Calatrava The Associated Press BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Argentine stocks and currency plummeted Monday after Argentine President Mauricio Macri was snubbed by voters who appeared to hand a resounding primary victory to a populist ticket with his predecessor, Cristina Fernández. The preliminary results from Sunday’s voting suggest the conservative Macri will face an uphill battle going into general elections in October and gives the populists who governed Argentina for most of the past two decades a strong chance of returning to power. The result stunned financial markets. About a third of the Argentinian companies that trade in U.S. markets lost half of their value Monday, but losses were extreme across the board. With 88% of polling stations tallied early Monday, official results gave the presidential slate headed by Alberto Fernández and his vice presidential running mate, Cristina Fernández, about 47% of the votes in a primary vote featuring 10 candidates. Macri and his running mate, Miguel Ángel Pichetto, had 32% — a wide margin that revealed the con-

To be elected president in the first round, candidates need to finish with at least 45% of the votes or have 40% and a greater than 10-point advantage over the nearest rival. If no candidate wins outright in October, there will be a November runoff. The election functioned largely as a poll for the October vote.

All of the parties already had their candidates chosen and the only practical result was to eliminate a few minor parties that got less than 1.5% of the overall votes from upcoming general election. The pro-business Macri has the support of financial markets and Washington, but has lost popularity amid a deep economic crisis that drove the inflation rate to nearly 50% last year and slashed Argentines’ purchasing power. He says he is taking the necessary, painful steps to get the economy

going after 12 years of leftist populism under Cristina Fernández and her predecessor and late husband, Nestor Kirchner. But the electorate issued a resounding rejection of his handling of the economic situation — and a recent lending package from the International Monetary Fund that totaled upward of $55 billion. Most Argentines blame the IMF for encouraging policies that led to the country’s worst economic crisis in 2001, which resulted in one of every five Argentines being unemployed and millions sliding into poverty. “It’s clear that Macri’s weakest point is the management of the economy, despite the fact that it has improved in the last three months,” said Mariel Fornoni, director of the political consultancy Management & Fit. The possibility that Cristina Fernández could return to power stunned markets. Matías Carugati, chief economist for Management & Fit, said the victory of the Fernández team would put “sustained” pressure on the exchange rate and stocks due to the prospect that the South American’s recent free, less state-interventionist course could be reversed. “This is an election where Argentina has to determine whether it continues on a path of transformation, of deepening democracy, of insertion into the world, of improvement and development — or returns to an authoritarian populist model that has failed in all places where it has been implemented,” he said.

40,000 census workers start verifying addresses next week By Mike Schneider The Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. — Starting this month, an army of 40,000 U.S. Census Bureau workers equipped with laptops will fan out to neighborhoods around the country to verify and update addresses in preparation for the largest head count in United States history next spring. The verification of addresses is the most labor-intensive component of the bureau’s preparations this year for the 2020 count. The workers known as “listers” will cover about a third of the nation’s physical area. The Census Bureau conducts a count of every U.S. resident every 10 years. “We’re moving later this month into the full-fledged national canvassing effort,” Steven Dillingham, director of the U.S. Census Bureau, said Monday at a news conference in Washington that was livestreamed. The start of the address verifying comes a month after President Donald Trump announced his administration would no longer seek

to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census questionnaire. Civil rights groups argue that the legal fight over the question will cause immigrants and others to hesitate filling out their census forms. The census results are used to distribute federal funds and decide how many U.S. representatives each state gets. The method used by census workers is changing this year: In years past, listers walked every block of every street in the nation to make sure the physical addresses matched what was on their lists. For this year’s head count, workers are verifying around two-thirds of the addresses from their office computers. Using aerial imagery, workers are looking for blocks where there has been significant growth or decline, where there are multiple instances of an address or when an address is missing. They will then send listers to those blocks to double check for accuracy or get updated information. Census officials estimate the new method will save time and money. It reduces the workload

The agency’s Office of Inspector General, though, recently questioned the accuracy of the new method. In a test run last year in Rhode Island, in-office results that showed a block didn’t need a physical check by a lister failed to match what was actually in the field for more than 60% of the blocks tested, according to an Inspector General’s report from last February.

“This indicates that in-office address canvassing is yielding incorrect results or, at the very least, results that are inconsistent with in-field address canvassing,” the report said. “Although the bureau aims to reduce the number of housing units that require in-field verification, address data quality will be sacrificed if in-office address canvassing is not yielding accurate results.” The Census Bureau strongly disagreed with the Inspector General’s methodology for calculating the error rate for the in-office results, saying it had overstated the errors.

His second sack came when he was able to bring down the quarterback on a rollout. Fourth-rounder Christian Miller replaced Burns in the second quarter after getting in on special teams in the first. He played a more traditional end spot, rushing the quarterback and tangling with tackles and tight ends in an effort to collapse the pocket. He forced the tight end into a holding penalty on his first defensive snap and had another forced holding penalty on a tight end later in the game. Both were on run plays. Miller also dropped into coverage on occasion but was never tested with a pass. His pass rushing had mixed results. He was blocked to the ground on one play in the third quarter, but later he flushed the quarterback after losing his blocker with a nice spin move in the backfield. Boston was listed as the starter at free safety but didn’t play defense until the second quarter. Ross Cockrell (strong) and Colin Jones (free) got the starts at the two safety spots. His only notable play was just before halftime, when he was seen chasing a receiver on a pass over the middle, but the blown coverage may not have been his fault. Rashaan Gaulden had a good game at safety, going step by step with the receiver for a pass breakup in the end zone, hitting the quarterback once and punching loose the ball for a fumble while tackling a running back.

PINEHURST — Scott Harvey is a 41-yearold property manager from Greensboro competing in his ninth U.S. Amateur. Akshay Bhatia is a 17-year-old golf prodigy from Wake Forest competing in his second. Despite their obvious differences, about the only thing that really separates them this week on the courses of Pinehurst Resort is the number of Motrin they had to take after finishing their rounds at the USGA’s oldest championship. They both came into the competition with the same goal of advancing to match play. Both shot the same score of 72 in the opening round of stroke play on Monday. And while they are excited and honored to be playing in such a prestigious tournament in their home state, both the up-and-coming youngster and the hardened veteran are approaching the U.S. Amateur as just another day at the office. “You just take it as the day goes on,” said Bhatia, the 2018 U.S. Junior Amateur runner-up who is expected to turn pro after next month’s Walker Cup matches in England. “If you play good golf, you’re going to score well.” Bhatia is no stranger to Pinehurst’s famed No. 2 course. He made a hole-in-one on the par-3 17th hole when he was just 12 years old. Harvey has had even more experience. But even after dozens of rounds in USGA championship play, including the 2014 Mid-Amateur title, one of the oldest players in the field said there’s still something special about teeing it up against top competition so close to home. “That makes it pretty cool, but no matter where you play it’s great,” Harvey said. “It’s the pinnacle of amateur golf. Every time you show up, it’s going to be pristine conditions, and it’s going to test you in every facet of the game and physically as well. It’s easy to get excited about a U.S. Amateur.” It’s just not as easy as it used to be recovering from 18 grueling holes in the summer sun. “The golf ball doesn’t know how old I am,” he said after his opening round. “So when I’m out there, I don’t feel like there’s anything (the younger players) can do that I can’t. The only thing that gets me is that I get tired. I’ve taken four ibuprofen in the last hour. That’s just the way it is and I’m fine with that.” Harvey and Bhaita are two of the 15 players from North Carolina in the 312-man medal play field. Among the others are Kevin O’Connell of Cary, the reigning USGA Mid-Amateur champion; Henry Shimp of Charlotte, who provided the winning point that clinched the college national championship for Stanford earlier this year; Alex Smalley of Greensboro, the 2016 U.S. Amateur stroke play medalist; Blake Wagoner of Cornelius, whose uncle Dan was an NFL defensive back; and John Eades of Charlotte, making his first U.S. Amateur appearances since 2001.

Panthers give rookies extended look during preseason opener Sorting through the film after 20 starters sit out game in Chicago By Shawn Krest North State Journal THE CAROLINA Panthers moved to 1-0 on the preseason with a 23-13 win at Chicago in their preseason opener. The game gave the team plenty of opportunity to look at young players. Of the 22 players listed as offensive and defensive starters on Carolina’s opening depth chart, 20 did not play in the game. Fullback Alex Armah and newly signed safety Tre Boston were the only ones to suit up. Here’s a look at how the rookies and other players involved in position battles helped or hurt their cause in their first preseason action. Defensive rookies and position battles First-round draft pick Brian Burns started at the edge rushing position in the Panthers’ new 3-4 defense. Unlike a traditional end, he tended to avoid engaging blockers, instead seeming to hang back for a beat, much like a player in the “spy” role against a scrambling quarterback. The approach worked — he was able to get into position to take down the quarterback when he tried to leave the pocket under pressure elsewhere.

Drake reached the NFL as a receivers coach in 2004 and joined the Arizona Cardinals in 2013 before coming to Pittsburgh in 2018. Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, who played under Drake in Chicago, tweeted that Drake “had a huge impact on me as a young player. His players loved him.” Drake is survived by his wife, Sheila, daughters Shanice, Felisha and Marian as well as two grandchildren. Jarren Williams: The redshirt freshman quarterback was picked as the Miami Hurricanes’ starter, beating out incumbent starter N’Kosi Perry and highly touted Ohio State transfer Tate Martell for the job. Miami coach Manny Diaz made the announcement Monday, saying he still believes that the Hurricanes can win with any of those three quarterbacks. Williams appeared in just one game for Miami last season, completing one of three passes and rushing for a short touchdown. Roberto Luongo: The recently retired goaltender will have his No. 1 jersey retired by the Florida Panthers on March 7. The Panthers announced the ceremony date on Monday. Fittingly, the opponent will be the Montreal Canadiens — Luongo’s hometown team. Luongo will become the first Panthers player to have his number retired.

State of recruiting, 2020: How Mack Brown has changed the game

This recruiting cycle? When Brown offers an in-state prospect, it’s a coin toss whether he commits. Year Wins Offers % 2020 10 20 .500 In other words, the biggest change in Brown’s recruiting approach is that he’s winning.

New UNC coach has shaken up the recruiting map in N.C.

The success By Shawn Krest North State Journal SO MUCH CAN change in a year. Last summer, Larry Fedora and UNC were struggling on the recruiting trail. NC State was on an impressive hot streak, seemingly landing every in-state prospect that coach Dave Doeren wanted, usually while the player was also holding an offer from UNC. After UNC also had an unsuccessful season on the field, the Tar Heels went in a surprising new direction, firing Fedora and bringing back Mack Brown, 20 years after he last coached at Carolina and five years after his retirement. Brown spoke openly and often about the importance of recruiting within the state — reminding players of the importance of playing close to home, so family and friends can watch, and pledging to devote attention to within the state. “I want to reach out to recruits and high school coaches and all of those things that we have missed,” Brown said at his introductory press conference. “We had a great relationship with the high school coaches when we left here, and that’s something. We will renew the ones that are still out there, and we’ll get to know the new guys, because that is such a key to getting better. Our team was probably 90-plus percent from the state of North Carolina when we left.” Brown had to hit the ground running, finishing up the 2019 recruiting cycle in the time remaining before the February signing day. He managed to use the time to upgrade Fedora’s weak class into a top-20 national ranking. With the 2020 class, he’s taken yet another step forward, building one that’s pushing for the top 15. It appears to be a complete overhaul of the recruiting approach in Chapel Hill. Brown is reaching out to local talent, re-

North Carolina head coach Mack Brown has already made an impact on recruiting in the state — and throughout the ACC and beyond. building relationships around the state and building the proverbial wall to put the best in-state talent in Carolina Blue. That’s been the narrative this summer, anyway. But is it true? Is Brown really devoting extra attention within the state? Is his message having the impact everything thinks it is on North Carolina talent? There’s also the issue of Brown returning to the recruiting trail. Most of the current high school seniors were starting middle school when Brown last coached. Does his name still carry an impact, and can he master social media and all the other factors that have changed recruiting significantly in recent years? The approach Brown said he was willing to leave the state to pursue elite prospects, and he’s already made offers to more recruits ranked in the top 100 than UNC did all of last year.

Offers to Offers to Year top 100s Year top 100s 2014 31 2015 37 2016 36 2017 47 2018 51 2019 29 2020 31 But true to his word, he’s backed off of travel for non-elite recruits. UNC has made the fewest offers to Florida players of the last seven years. 2014 42 2016 67 2018 73 2020 45

2015 54 2017 94 2019 48

The big surprise is the number of offers to North Carolina in-state prospects hasn’t skyrocketed. In fact, they’re down from last year. 2014 32 2016 36 2018 24 2020 27

2015 29 2017 20 2019 41

What’s going on? So, if he’s not making more offers in the state or in hotbeds like Florida, where is Brown sending all of his offers? The answer, surprisingly, is that he’s not. The reason Brown isn’t lighting up the state with offers is that he’s winning the recruiting battles. Here’s a look at UNC’s success rate with offers inside the state over the last several years. In general, one out of every four prospects offered by UNC commited to the Tar Heels. (Note: Some prospects offered by UNC didn’t choose a school, which is why the numbers in the “offers” column don’t match the N.C. chart from earlier exactly).

Drinkwitz aims even higher at App State The Mountaineers’ new coach is embracing the school’s past successes but wants to go even further By Brett Friedlander North State Journal THE APPALACHIAN State football team has a new coaching staff. The expectations remain the same. Loaded with a roster of players that helped Scott Satterfield win three straight Sun Belt Conference championships, the Mountaineers have once again been picked to finish first in their division and win the league crown under new leader Eliah Drinkwitz. But according to the former NC State offensive coordinator, the goal for his first season as a college head coach isn’t just to uphold a tradition that’s already been set. “As good as we’ve been in the past, there are still things out there we can accomplish that will set ourselves apart,” Drinkwitz said. “That’s our aim, to try to do things better than they’ve been done before. “Yes, they’ve been good. Yes, they’ve had success. Yes, we embrace that. But there’s more to do, and if we’re satisfied with that, it’s not what we’re about.” A big reason for Drinkwitz’s optimism is the depth of talent his predecessor Satterfield left behind when he decided to take the job at Louisville after going 7-1 in the Sun Belt and 10-2 overall a year ago. Twenty starters return, including all the top weapons from an offense that averaged 37.3 points per game. It’s an attack led by quarterback Zac Thomas, the reigning conference Offensive Player of the Year who passed for 21 touchdowns and rushed for 10 others in his first season as a starter. Running back Darrynton Evans is also back after rushing 1,187 yards as a replacement for in-

Even with all that familiarity, there are bound to be at least some changes with any change in leadership. Among the most noticeable changes instituted by Drinkwitz and his new staff has Thomas taking snaps from under center, something that wasn’t done in Satterfield’s offense. The junior quarterback might also spend more time in the pocket looking downfield than he has in the past. “Last year we were kind of a run heavy team,” said Thomas, who was the Mountaineers’ third-leading rusher in 2018 with 504 yards. “I think this year we’re going to be more of a throwing offense. It’s a big part of the offense if you can air it out.” There will also be some tweaks on defense under well-traveled new coordinator Ted Roof despite the return of seven starters from

a unit that led the Sun Belt by allowing only 15.5 points and 288.7 yards per game. “Schematically, I feel like we can do a lot of different things,” said senior free safety Josh Thomas, who tied for the team lead with four interceptions last season. “We’ve got a lot of fronts, a lot of coverages we can throw at people to give them a curveball they’ve never seen before. “Being in this scheme is fun be-

cause we can always bring something out that we’ve never shown before. It allows us to play fast and have a lot of fun out there.” While Drinkwitz has made some changes to suit his own style, as most new coaches do when they come into a new situation, he’s quick to emphasize that they’re subtle. If the system isn’t broken, it doesn’t need to be fixed. “There will be some cosmetic changes,” he said. “But you’re going to see some things that look the exact same.” Among the things Drinkwitz and his players hope stays the same is the double-digit number in the win column and another conference championship trophy at the end of the season. It’s a quest that begins on Aug. 31 with a home game against East Tennessee State. “We’ve got a strong football team and a great staff,” Drinkwitz said. “The challenge for us now is to put it all together.”

It’s easy to win recruiting battles if you go after lesser prospects. But based on the teams he’s beating, Brown is winning them for players everyone wants. Carolina and NC State have gone head-tohead for 13 players who ended up choosing one of the schools. UNC landed 10 of them. Last year, the Heels won just six of the 19 battles with the Pack. Brown is doing just as well against the rest of the league. Players who have chosen Carolina in 2020 had a total of 66 other ACC offers, more than last year’s entire class (57). Meanwhile, just 30 players with Carolina offers have chosen other league schools, compared to 66 last year. Brown is also getting players with SEC offers (47 in this year’s class compared to 33 last year) and Big Ten offers (47, up from 37). For any question of how much weight Brown’s name carries, one need only look at the Big 12, where he used to coach. Players in this year’s UNC class have 21 offers from that conference. Only four players chose the Big 12 over a UNC offer. That 21-4 “win-loss” record, compares to 17-16 last season. Overall, Brown’s recruiting “win-loss” record is 190-102 (.651) against Power Five teams this year, up from Fedora’s 156-205 (.432) last year. Bottom line: Brown is seeing recruiting success at Carolina unlike any seen in previous years. He’s landing guys the big programs want at higher rates than we’ve seen. It could just be a honeymoon period, and there’s still a long way to go until signing day, but the early returns are overwhelmingly impressive.

PINEHURST from page B1 There are also several players representing state colleges attempting to be among the 64 advancing to match play, including four from North Carolina and three from Duke. Although most have local knowledge of the layouts being used, there isn’t much of a home course advantage when the USGA is involved. The medal play portion of the tournament was contested on Pinehurst’s courses No. 2 and No. 4, which competitors playing 18 holes on each before the field was trimmed for the start of match play on Wednesday. The 36-hole final is scheduled for Sunday. “This is my third U.S. Amateur, so I have a good sense of what it’s like now, and then being from Charlotte I’ve played at Pinehurst quite a bit,” Shimp said. “I played high school state championships out here, played a couple North Souths. So I’ve been around. “It doesn’t really make it any easier, but knowing where you just can’t miss and where you need to try to leave your ball certainly is helpful.” If nothing else, O’Connell — who recently relocated to Florida — said that it never hurts to look over to gallery and see friendly faces. “My parents still live in Cary, so I spent the last week or so at their house just playing around here,” the 36-year-old UNC graduate said. “After having played here at the U.S. Am in ’08, it’s fun to come back.” This is the third U.S. Amateur to be played at Pinehurst. Labron Harris beat Downing Gray for the title in 1962, and Danny Lee beat Drew Kittleson to win in 2008. While Harvey said he enjoys playing simply for the love of the game, O’Connell is thinking seriously about turning pro for a second time in his career after defending his title at the Mid-Amateur this fall. Bhatia is also preparing to play for pay. That, he said, only makes this week’s event all the more special. “The atmosphere out here at Pinehurst for the U.S. Amateur is something you don’t get very often,” the talented teenager said.

Will Healy brings new attitude to Charlotte football Preseason injuries may slow progress on field By Shawn Krest North State Journal

LUCAS CARTER | THE AMERICAN LEGION

Pitcher Bryce Marsh and Randolph County Post 45 earned a return trip to the American Legion World Series in Shelby.

Randolph Co. team returns to American Legion World Series Post 45 will have a home-field advantage with the tournament being played in Shelby By Brett Friedlander North State Journal RANDOLPH COUNTY Post 45 won’t officially be the host team for the upcoming American Legion World Series in Shelby, as it was at the Mid-Atlantic Region tournament last week in Asheboro. But it might as well be. Coach Ronnie Pugh’s team will be making its third straight trip to the national championship baseball event for players 19 years old and younger. Post 45 is the only team making a return appearance from a year ago. It’s an experience Pugh hopes will give his players an advantage as they look to take the next step by bringing home the championship that has eluded them in their first two World Series opportunities. “Their confidence level after being in a World Series goes way up,” said Pugh, who also serves as an assistant coach for the Catawba team that played in the Division II College World Series in June. “The game doesn’t know it’s a big game, it’s what the participants make out of it and handle it. “It certainly can’t hurt just knowing the routine, where we were and the scheduling. Hopefully we can build on that.” Nine players on Post 45’s current roster were also on the 2018 World Series team. Three members — catcher Austin Curry, center fielder/pitcher Trevor Marsh and shortstop/pitcher Braxton

Davis — are making their third trip to the Legion final at Keeter Stadium. That veteran presence has already paid dividends this summer, helping the team battle back through the losers bracket to win four straight elimination games on the way to last week’s region crown. Post 45 lost its second game of the tournament, leaving 11 men on base in a 6-2 loss to Vienna, Va., Post 180. The Randolph County team eventually turned the tables on the Virginia state champs by beating them twice in Sunday’s final round, but not before it survived a wild 7-5 shootout against Morgantown, WVa., Post 2 on Saturday that left it dangerously thin on the mound. Marsh, the MVP of Post 45’s 2017 regional victory who is headed to UNC Wilmington, helped the pitching situation considerably by throwing a twohit 3-0 shutout in Sunday’s first game. It was the first time in 98 games that Post 180 had been held scoreless. Davis then followed by giving up just three hits over six strong innings. When he tired in the seventh, Marsh’s younger brother Tatum came on to earn the save in a 3-2 victory. Despite having pitched only eight innings all summer, Tatum Marsh — a sophomore at Asheboro High School — calmly got the final out of the tournament with the tying run on third and the winning run at first. “This group is about as even keeled as any group I’ve ever coached,” Pugh said. “You really can’t tell what day of the week it is, how many days of the week we’ve played, who we’re playing or what we’re playing for. They just come out and go to work and

“They just come out and go to work and 37 wins later and a trip to the World Series, it’s paid off for us.” Ronnie Pugh, coach of Randolph County Post 45

37 wins later and a trip to the World Series, it’s paid off for us.” Post 45 (37-10) is a team comprised of players that live in and around the Asheboro area. It will begin pool play at the Legion World Series on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. against Shrewsbury, Mass., Post 397. Each team will play at least three games before the semifinals and finals next Monday and Tuesday. The other teams in the field are Fargo, N.D., Post 2 and Idaho Falls, Idaho, Post 56, which are also in Randolph County’s pool, along with Destrehan, La., Post 366, Festus, Mo., Post 253 and Danville, Ill., Post 210. All games in the tournament will be televised live nationally on either ESPNU or ESPN News. Post 45 advanced to the semifinals in the 2017 World Series before going 1-2 in pool play last year. Pugh said he likes his team’s chances in this year’s event. “We got some key hits and then on Sunday (at the regionals) we go two great pitching performances with no bullpen,” Pugh said. “Sometimes things have a way of evening out. I’d like to think we take the approach that we’ve got a chance to win every time we go out on the field, it’s just a matter of who steps up.”

AT CONFERENCE USA Media Days, new Charlotte coach Will Healy made a statement that now sounds ominous. “The way your wideouts play,” said Healy, just the second coach Charlotte’s program has had, “is indicative of the type of offense, the type of success you’ll have.” Less than two weeks later, sophomore Rico Arnold, who was Charlotte’s second leading returning receiver, underwent surgery on the ankle he injured during spring practice. He’ll miss the entire season. The bad news has cast a pall on the upbeat atmosphere Healy has tried to instill in Charlotte. “We’ve got to create a brand within itself,” Healy said. “We’ve got to make sure we’re relevant within our city, that we’re one of the biggest shows in town in Charlotte. We’ve got to fill that stadium and create demand to build on.” Healy, who, at age 34 was the second youngest head coach in Division 1 football when he was hired in December, has been busy building that brand and generating excitement. He raved about the team’s energy level at spring practices, which were held at 5:30 a.m. due to class scheduling conflicts. “We had the most energetic, enthusiastic, passionate practices, even at 5:30 in the morning,” he said. Defensive players are now encouraged to dunk the football in a trash can held aloft by teammates when they reach the sideline. “He wants us to have fun and play with energy,” edge rusher Alex Highsmith said. Highsmith is one of seven returning starters on defense, including five of the 49ers top six tacklers from last year. Charlotte’s D was ninth best in the country against the run last season and in the top 25 in total yardage allowed per game. “We inherited a defense that had some swag about themselves,” Healy said. Highsmith (18.5 TFL, 3 sacks) was named to the first-team preseason All-CUSA team. He and Tyriq Harris (4.5 TFL) return to the line. Jeff Gemmell (87 tackles, 9 TFL) and Anthony Butler (53 tackles, 4 TFL) return at linebacker, joined by Penn State transfer Brelin Faison-Walden, and the secondary returns safety Ben DeLuca (91 tackles, 4 pass breakups) and corner Nafees Lyon (5 pass breakups). The secondary also returns Robert Cheatem, who missed all of last season with an injury after recording 31 tackles and three breakups in 2017. Tennessee transfer Marquill Osborne will also be in the mix, assuming he doesn’t have to sit a year. “I don’t think we have questions

“The potential ceiling for our program is as high as I’ve ever seen.” Will Healy

in the secondary,” Healy said. “We have great depth. The question is where does everybody fit in.” On offense, Healy’s specialty, there’s more work to be done. Last season’s starter, Chris Reynolds, returns after an ankle injury wiped out six games. He completed nearly 65 percent of his passes for 1,173 yards and six touchdowns. Evan Shirreffs (52 percent, 631 yards, two touchdowns), who replaced him, is also back. They’re joined by USF transfer Brett Kean, although Healy hasn’t chosen a starter yet. “We have no clarity, but we’ve got good options,” he said. Without Arnold, the only experienced target returning at receiver is Victor Tucker, who had 54 catches for 712 yards last year. Healy’s teams at Austin Peay, where he improved the team from a 0-11 record in his first season to 8-4 in his second, were known for their rushing attack. The Governors were 16th in FCS in rushing last season at 237.5 yards per game, and that was down from 258.8 the year before. So it should come as no surprise that Healy plans to rely on the run this season. He has just the person to help him achieve that in returning running back Ben LeMay, who had 1,243 yards — second in the league — and 11 touchdowns last season. LeMay was named to first-team preseason All-CUSA. The line returns two starters — left tackle Cam Clark and left guard Jalen Allen. “I feel great about the offensive line,” Healy said. “We’re going to have some competition at the other positions. … We’re going to need them, because we’re going to run the football.” On special teams, Charlotte returns sophomore kicker Jonathan Cruz, who was chosen first-team preseason All-CUSA. He made eight of 10 kicks from 40 yards or longer last year. The team also returns punter Kyle Corbett (41 yard average) and kick returner Aaron McAllister (17.9 average). The 49ers have never had a winning record. Last year’s 5-7 mark was as close as they’ve come. While Healy is focused on turning around the attitude in Charlotte, it may take another year for the results to show in the standings. Perhaps thinking of his first year at Austin Peay, he’s OK with waiting. “The potential ceiling for our program is as high as I’ve ever seen,” he said. “The culture and identity are going to change. We just have to make sure what we do in year one is something you can sustain and make last.”

PANTHERS from page B1 played late in the game and had a pass breakup on a long ball. Offensive rookies and position battles Second-rounder Greg Little got the start at left tackle, with sixth-rounder Dennis Daley next to him at left guard. That was too much youth on one side, as the pair struggled early. Little lost his man on back-to-back plays on the second drive. He also overran his man on a run play and fell down trying to recover. Another blown block flushed the quarterback from the pocket. Daley missed a block on his second play, forcing the quarterback out of the pocket. He was also blocking someone else when a rusher came through his gap to record a sack. He got downfield quickly on a screen play, then missed two guys while trying to block. He had another blown block that led to a tackle for loss in the second quarter and was bowled over while blocking on a field goal. Perhaps they’ll do better next to a veteran, which we’ll likely see as the preseason goes on, but both have a long way to go to unseat tackle Daryl Williams and guard Greg Van Roten.

Godwin cutting across the middle, leading to an interception. Grier settled in, completed four straight to receivers at one point. He also showed his ability to scramble. His numbers compared well to Kyle Allen and Taylor Heinicke, neither of whom took a major step

forward in the three-way battle to back up Cam Newton. Godwin had a strong game at receiver and punt returner, highlighted by a pair of long returns in the second half. Most of Godwin’s competition at slot receiver (Chris Hogan, Jarius Wright, Tor-

rey Smith) didn’t play. Fifth-round running back Jordan Scarlett didn’t play, giving Cameron Artis-Payne, Reggie Bonnafon (who also played special teams, springing Godwin with a block on one punt return) and Holyfield extended looks.

RALEIGH — Senate Bill 86, Small Business Health Care Act, passed 82-32 in the House on Aug. 7 with backing from major state business organizations seeking more affordable ways for their members to provide coverage to employees. The bill saw significant bi-partisan crossover support, with 19 House Democrats voting for the Republican-sponsored legislation. Under the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, employers provide health insurance to their workers either in the small group market, if they have 50 or fewer employees, or in the large group market, if they had over 50 employees. Those in the small group markets included many sole proprietors, independent contractors and small businesses. According to backers of the bill, like the N.C. Chamber of Commerce, the N.C. Realtors and the N.C. Retail Merchants Association, their members were complaining that coverage was more expensive for them because they, unlike those in the large group market, were required to provide the “10 Essential Benefits” mandated by the ACA. They also claimed that their ability to negotiate with insurance companies for more affordable plans was limited due to their size. At the press conference announcing the final version of the bill and its likely passage, House and Senate members of both parties gathered in the media room at the legislature, along with small business owners and representatives from trade associations who had backed S.B. 86. “We have a lot of small business people who employ between

five and twenty-five people,” Richard Greene, executive director of the North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild, said at the sponsors’ press conference. “Their biggest issue is to be able to attract employees, retain them, and provide a decent living that includes health care. I want to thank the legislators for their hard work on this bill. This is a very critical piece to our businesses.” A concern of those who opposed the bill is that moving large numbers of people from the small group market to the large group market will siphon off healthier, younger enrollees, making coverage for those remaining more expensive. They also oppose the ability of Association Health Plans to avoid covering those 10 Essential Health Benefits, which include things like maternity care and substance abuse treatment. Without these benefits, those opposed worry that employers would just be saving money by providing their workers with insufficient coverage. A Democrat-introduced amendment to S.B. 86 would have required the plans to continue providing these benefits but was voted down before the bill passed. The viability of the bill relies on an executive order by President Trump directing the U.S. Dept. of Labor to expand the definition of “employer.” The executive order would allow many smaller employers to band together in associations and be considered as one “employer” for the purposes of providing health coverage. The executive order was invalidated in March of 2019 by U.S. District Judge John D. Bates, leaving S.B. 86’s future tied to an appeal of this decision to a higher court. The court agreed with the 11 states and Washington, D.C. who brought the case in their argument that “DOL’s Final Rule stretches the definition of “employer” beyond what ERISA’s [the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974] text and pur-

“We do expect a successful appeal of court rulings that might prevent continued and successful collaboration among North Carolina associations seeking to lower costs and improve care for their industries’ employees.” Tim Moore’s communications director pose will bear.” “[T]hat is just the opinion of one federal judge and that decision is being appealed,” Bill D’Elia, a spokesperson for Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Eden), told NSJ. “We are confident that appeal will be successful and as a result we are moving forward with this important legislation to provide small businesses a cost-effective option to offer their employees high quality health insurance plans.” Speaker Tim Moore’s (R-Kings Mountain) office agreed with the Senate leader. In a statement to NSJ, Joseph Kyzer, Moore’s communications director, said, “We do expect a successful appeal of court rulings that might prevent continued and successful collaboration among North Carolina associations seeking to lower costs and improve care for their industries’ employees.” The bill, which originated in the Senate, was sent back to that chamber for a concurrence vote. Both Moore and Berger’s offices said there was agreement on changes from the original bill, so they did not expect to hit any roadblocks on the final vote, which according to D’Elia, will be this week.

Indonesian firm cancels Chinese loan for its Trump project By Fadlan Syam The Associated Press JAKARTA, Indonesia — U.S. President Donald Trump’s son and his Indonesian business partner said Tuesday that a theme park that also features a Trump hotel and condos will no longer have Chinese financing. In a move that alarmed Trump critics, MNC Land, the Indonesian company that is developing the theme park owned by Indonesian billionaire Hary Tanoesoedibjo, said

in May that it had hired a subsidiary of Chinese state-owned Metallurgical Corp. of China to build the park in its West Java Lido City development just outside Jakarta. “The theme park has nothing to do with the Trump Organization, we have to make it clear,” Tanoesoedibjo said at a news conference in the capital that was also attended by Donald Trump Jr. to introduce the launch of Trump Residences in West Java and Bali. Tanoesoedibjo said his company and a Chinese bank had discussed a

loan for his theme park. “It was done by our team, but finally we dropped it,” he said, without elaborating. News reports said a Chinese government-backed $500 million loan for the project had been signed, but that was denied by the company in May. “It has nothing to do with Trump,” Trump Jr. said. “Obviously he (Tanoesoedibjo) has got a large development, and the two have nothing to do with each other.” The property owner signed a deal

four years earlier for the development to include a Trump-branded hotel along with a golf course, country club, luxury condominiums, mansions and villas — billed in its promotional material as “Trump Residences.” Together with a theme park, hotels, shops, homes and a dining and entertainment district that MNC is developing on its own, this first stage of “Lido City” is to occupy 3,000 hectares (7,413 acres).

C2 More ride-hailing requirements become law in North Carolina Raleigh North Carolina has a new law focused on ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft that supporters contend will improve safety for both passengers and drivers. Gov. Roy Cooper said Friday that he’s signed a bill that cleared the General Assembly unanimously last month. The bill’s impetus was the death of a University of South Carolina student who police say was killed after getting into a car driven by a man posing as an Uber driver. The law makes impersonating a ride-hailing driver a crime while increasing the penalty for assaulting a genuine ride-hailing driver. Starting in October, ridehailing cars must have front license tag numbers. By next summer, they’ll have to display their company’s logo to be clearly seen day and night, although alternative signage is possible.

UK court to hear bid to stop no-deal Brexit next month London A British judge has set a hearing for next month for an attempt by opposition lawmakers to stop Prime Minister Boris Johnson from suspending Parliament to force through a no-deal Brexit. More than 70 parliamentarians argue that sending lawmakers home before the scheduled Oct. 31 Brexit date would be “unlawful and unconstitutional.” On Tuesday, at the Court of Session in Edinburgh, Judge Raymond Doherty said a substantive hearing should take place Sept. 6. Johnson says Britain will leave the European Union on Oct. 31, with or without a divorce deal. Britain’s Parliament has rejected the existing agreement and the EU refuses to renegotiate, so a no-deal Brexit looks increasingly likely, despite fears it could cause economic turmoil.

Trump to promote turning natural gas into plastics in Pa. By Jill Colvin The Associated Press BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. — Trying to hold support in the manufacturing towns that helped him win the White House in 2016, President Donald Trump is showcasing growing efforts to capitalize on western Pennsylvania’s natural gas deposits by turning gas into plastics. Trump was in Monaca, about 40 minutes north of Pittsburgh, on Tuesday to tour Shell’s soon-tobe completed Pennsylvania Petrochemicals Complex. The facility, which critics claim will become the largest air polluter in western Pennsylvania, is being built in an area hungry for investment. The focus is part of a continued push by the Trump administration to increase the economy’s dependence on fossil fuels in defiance of increasingly urgent warnings about climate change. And it’s an embrace of plastic at a time when the world is sounding alarms over its ubiquity and impact. Trump’s appeals to blue-collar workers helped him win Beaver County, where the plant is located, by more than 18 percentage points in 2016, only to have voters turn to Democrats in 2018’s midterm elections. In one of a series of defeats that led to Republicans’ loss of the House, voters sent Democrat Conor Lamb to Congress after the prosperity promised by Trump’s tax cuts failed to materialize. Today, Beaver County is still struggling to recover from the shuttering of steel plants in the 1980s that surged the unemployment rate to nearly 30%. Former mill towns like Aliquippa have seen their populations shrink, while Pittsburgh has lured major tech companies like Google and

Uber, fueling an economic renaissance in a city that reliably votes Democratic. The region’s natural gas deposits had been seen, for a time, as its new road to prosperity, with drilling in the Marcellus Shale reservoir transforming Pennsylvania into the nation’s No. 2 natural gas state. But drops in the price of oil and gas caused the initial jobs boom from fracking to fizzle, leading companies like Shell to turn instead to plastics and socalled cracker plants — named after the process in which molecules are broken down at high heat, turning fracked ethane gas into one of the precursors for plastic. The company was given massive tax breaks to build the petrochemicals complex, along with a $10 million site development grant, with local politicians eager to accommodate a multibillion-dollar construction project. White House spokesman Judd Deere said Trump would be touring the plant and delivering re-

marks “touting his Administration’s economic accomplishments and support for America’s expanding domestic manufacturing and energy production.” Shell announced its plans to build the complex in 2012, when President Barack Obama was in office. But “fracking for plastic” has drawn alarm from environmentalists and other activists, who warn of potential health and safety risks to nearby residents and bemoan the production of ever more plastic. There has been growing alarm over the sheer quantity of plastic on the planet, which has overwhelmed landfills, inundated bodies of water and permeated the deepest reaches of the ocean. Microplastics have also been found in the bodies of birds, fish, whales and people, with the health impacts largely unknown. While many in town see the plant as an economic lifeline, other local residents, community organizations and public health advocates are planning a protest

Tuesday to coincide with Trump’s visit. Cheryl Johncox, a local organizer with the Sierra Club who lives in Ohio, said she expects several hundred people to attend to voice opposition to the plant, as well as demonstrate against Trump’s immigration and gun policies. In addition to concerns about the safety of their air and groundwater, her group has heard from residents “dismayed these facilities will create single-use plastic,” she said. “Of all the things we could invest in, of all the things we should be prioritizing, of all the companies we should be giving our taxpayer money to, this seems like the worst of all worlds,” said David Masur, executive director of PennEnvironment, a statewide environmental advocacy organization, who called the project “a pretty big taxpayer boondoggle for a pretty dirty project.” A spokesman for the company, Ray Fisher, said Shell has “dedicated a great deal of time and resources” to ensure emissions from the plant meet or exceed local, state and federal requirements. “As designed, the project will actually help improve the local air shed as it relates to ozone and fine particulates,” he said. Republicans, who worry that Trump has failed to expand his voter base beyond his 2016 supporters, are eager to shift the focus from recent controversies to economic gains made on his watch. The project currently has 5,000 construction workers. Once operational, however, the site will employ far fewer — 600 — permanent employees. And the area still faces other headwinds. The nearby Beaver Valley Power Station, a nuclear plant that has employed 850 people, has announced plans to close in 2021. More importantly, the area lacks younger workers, with college graduates moving east to Pittsburgh for better opportunities. The median age in the county is now 44.9, compared to 32.9 in Pittsburgh.

US consumer prices rose 0.3% amid widespread cost increases Washington, D.C. U.S. consumer prices rose 0.3% in July, pushed higher by more expensive gas, medical care and housing. The consumer price index increased 1.8% compared with a year earlier, up from 1.6% in June, the Labor Department said Tuesday. Excluding the volatile food and energy categories, core prices moved up 0.3% in July and 2.2% from a year ago. The figures suggest that inflation is picking up slightly, though it remains modest. The economy is in its 11th year of growth, unemployment is low, and wages are growing modestly. These are trends that typically accelerate price gains. But many companies are reluctant to charge more in the face of online and global competition.

INDONESIA from page C1 sits on a 350-hectare (865-acre) plot that can be accessed directly through the newly opened Bocimi highway from Indonesia’s capital. The two groups are also working together on the 102-hectare (250-acre) Trump International Resort, Golf Club and Residences located near Bali’s sacred Hindu temple of Tanah Lot. They promise breathtaking views and a super-sized golf course overlooking the temple. The two Trump Residences projects in West Java and Bali are to cost about $1.7 billion. The Trump Organization will manage the properties under an agreement made with MNC Land in 2015, before Trump was elected. Even though Trump’s involvement in the project predated his election, both deals raised concerns that foreign governments could influence his administration, which has been in a bitter trade war with China. “My father is not at all involved, and he won’t make decisions that affect a country based on a real estate deal,” said Trump Jr., who is executive vice president of the Trump Organization. “We should be very ... very clear about that.” Tanoesoedibjo said the projects are basically funded by his group of companies.

Asian stocks follow Wall Street lower on trade war jitters Investor anxiety leads to erratic foreign markets as trade dispute continues By Joe McDonald The Associated Press BEIJING — Asian stock markets followed Wall Street lower Tuesday amid anxiety the U.S.-Chinese trade war will hurt already slowing global economic growth. Benchmarks in Shanghai, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Sydney all retreated. Investor anxiety has been fed by President Donald Trump’s threat of new U.S. tariff hikes on Chinese goods, protests in Hong Kong and weaker-than-expected data from India, Argentina and Singapore. “The global economy is perched precariously, hoping for a posi-

tive inflection, but braced for a stumble,” said Vishnu Varathan of Mizuho Bank in a report. The Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.5% to 2,801.33, and Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 tumbled 1.2% to 20,433.65. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng fell 1.2% to 25,524.86. Seoul’s Kospi lost 0.7% to 1,928.80, while Sydney’s S&P-ASX 200 was 0.3% lower at 6,579.70. Markets in Taiwan, New Zealand and Southeast Asia also retreated. Investors were rattled by a Chinese government statement Monday saying mostly nonviolent protests in Hong Kong were “beginning to show the sprouts of terrorism” and were an “existential threat” to the population. Hong Kong’s airport, one of the world’s busiest, canceled all flights Monday evening after thousands of pro-democracy protesters crowded into its main terminal.

Beijing’s use of the term terrorism “triggered a wave of risk aversion across global markets,” said Stephen Innes of VM Markets in a report. On Wall Street, the benchmark Standard & Poor’s 500 had its biggest decline in a week while the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost nearly 400 points. Selling was widespread. Technology companies and banks accounted for a big share of the decline. Investors sought safety in U.S. government bonds, sending their yields tumbling. The price for gold, another traditional safe-haven asset, closed higher. The S&P 500 lost 1.2% to 2,883.09. The Dow fell 1.5%, or 389.73 points, to 25,897.71. The Nasdaq composite dropped 1.2% to 7,863.41. Trump has promised 10% tariffs

on some $300 billion in Chinese imports that haven’t already been hit with tariffs of 25%. The new tariff would go into effect Sept. 1 and more directly affect U.S. consumers. Last week, Trump said he’d be “fine” if the U.S. and China don’t go ahead with a meeting next month, dampening investors’ hopes for a resolution. ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude lost 13 cents to $54.80 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract gained 43 cents on Monday to close at $54.93. Brent crude, used to price international oils, declined 19 cents to $58.38 per barrel in London. It added 4 cents the previous session to $58.57. CURRENCY: The dollar gained to 105.57 yen from Monday’s 105.30 yen. The euro declined to $1.1188 from $1.1214.

ECU’s “Veteran to Scholar Program” Veteran Affairs continues to help veterans transition head discusses mental health during NC visits By A.P. Dillon North State Journal

GREENVILLE — East Carolina University will be hosting the Veteran to Scholar Bridge Program to help ease veterans’ transition to campus life for the third year in a row. Dr. Anna Froula is the director of the Veteran to Scholar program and is an associate professor of film studies, associate chair of the Department of English and faculty advisor to the Pirate Veterans Organization at ECU. The program gives veterans a supportive and peer friendly way to begin shifting from their service days into a campus environment. The current program session will run from July 29 to August 9 and will span from 9 am to 2 pm each day. Memory and memorialization, gender and war, homecomings, military folklore, veterans’ narratives and representations of veterans in popular culture are all topics included in the program. Additional activities planned include trips to Joyner Library, the Pirate Academic Success Center, University Writing Center and student computing. According to Froula roughly 30 veterans have taken advantage of this program, are doing well with their studies and express satisfaction with their experience at ECU. “Several who participated the year before are volunteering with the program this year because they enjoyed their own experience,” said Froula. The National Endowment of the Humanities provided funding for 2017 and 2018

Dr. Froula said in an email to NSJ that ECU is supporting the program, specifically, through Academic Affairs, the Thomas Harriot College of Arts & Sciences, and the Department of English. “I also received a donation from the Greenville Veteran Motorcycle Club, which generously is providing some lunches,” said Froula. “Christy’s Europub, Dickinson Avenue Public House, and Luna Pizza Café are also generous-

ly donating meals.” Froula says she will be discussing the possibility of renewing the program through fundraising with Interim Chancellor Gerlach. “I anticipate being able to continue the program on a modest budget, one way or another. I believe Veteran to Scholar could help recruit student veterans to ECU if we get the word out. Participants generally speak highly of their experience,” Froula said.

FAYETTEVILLE —U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie says the government is making changes to improve mental health services, which he called “the last great medical frontier.” The cabinet secretary and N.C. native spoke last week about veterans’ mental health and suicide prevention during stops in Fayetteville and Wilmington. He pointed to the new mental health center being built at the Fayetteville Veterans Affairs Medical Center as evidence of the VA’s commitment to veterans. Officials say the two-story, 15,400 square-foot building is more than 75% complete. In Wilmington, Wilkie said the VA was increasing mental health screenings and same-day mental health services. Joined by U.S. Sen Thom Tillis (R-NC) on his tour of the Wilmington VA clinic, Wilkie spoke of the importance of brining VA services to all veterans, including those with “other than honorable” discharges. “The majority of those veterans who take their lives are not within the VA system,” said Wilkine. He said his department was working with local governments and non-profits to locate at-risk veterans. Tillis called the shift to include all veterans in mental health services “a critically important change in direction.” Wilkie says about $9.5 billion — or about 10% — of the VA’s budget goes toward mental health services. While in N.C., Wilkie attended part of North Carolina Business Trade Show in Fayetteville and joined Tillis for tours of the VA clinic in Wilmington and the Veterans Life Center, which is under construction in Butner and scheduled to open in 2020.

VetsAid to feature ZZ Top, Brad Paisley, Sheryl Crow Houston Joe Walsh will be joined by ZZ Top, Brad Paisley, Sheryl Crow, and Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit at his VetsAid music festival to benefit veterans. The award-winning musician announced Monday that tickets for the Nov. 10 concert at the Toyota Center in Houston will go on sale Friday. In its first two years, net proceeds have allowed VetsAid to disburse nearly $1.2 million in grants. Grants this year will go to Houston-area organizations. In a statement, Walsh says “all are welcome to celebrate the things that unite us as Americans: good friends, open hearts and great music!” Walsh’s father died while stationed on Okinawa, Japan, when the musician was 20 months old. He offers free guitar lessons to wounded veterans at Walter Reed National Medical Center, outside Washington.

Lil Nas X’s viral song sets more records on Billboard charts New York Lil Nas X is galloping his way to two new records on the Billboard charts thanks to the massive success of “Old Town Road.” The song that beat out Mariah Carey and “Despacito” to become the longest-running No. 1 hit in the history of the Hot 100 chart has now set records on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs and Hot rap songs charts, respectively. “Old Town Road,” which features Billy Ray Cyrus and is spending its 19th week at No. 1, surpasses the record set by Drake’s “One Dance” on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart. Drake’s track spent 18 weeks at No.1. Last month Lil Nas X’s viral song became the most successful No. 1 song of all-time when it reached its 17th week at No. 1 on the all-genre Hot 100 chart — Billboard’s main chart for singles. “Old Town Road” is now spending its 19th week on top of the Hot 100 chart.

Jimi Hendrix performing his legendary 2 hour performance at Woodstock Music & Arts Festival held on Sam Yasgur’s alfalfa field in Sullivan County in Bethal, New York on August 18, 1969.

Where was Woodstock held? 5 myths about the famous festival Woodstock is surrounded by myths, legends and misperceptions. Here’s the real story about five of them. By Michael Hill The Associated Press 1. Woodstock was not held at Woodstock It made sense that co-organizer Michael Lang wanted to have the concert in Woodstock. The Catskill Mountains town was already known for being an artists’ colony and Bob Dylan’s rural hideaway. But key people in the town wanted no part of the concert. The festival was going to be held a bit south of Woodstock at an old industrial site in Wallkill, New York. But those plans fell through about a month before the show, sending Lang scrambling to find a new site. He was driving

through farm country in Bethel, New York, when he spied a gently sloping alfalfa field. He struck a deal with the farmer, Max Yasgur. 2. The New York State Thruway stayed open “The New York State Thruway is closed, man,” Arlo Guthrie famously announced from the festival stage. Not exactly. Police closed at least one thruway exit east of the festival to stem the source of a blockbuster traffic jam around the site. How bad were the roads? The New York Daily News reported on Aug. 16, 1969, that cars were being delayed by as much as eight hours between New York City and the concert site — a distance of less than 100 miles. 3. Babies were (sort of) born at Woodstock This one could be true depend-

ing on how you define “at Woodstock.” The concert’s medical director told reporters at the scene of the festival that there were two births: one at a local hospital after the mother was flown out by helicopter; the other in a car caught in traffic. Wade Lawrence, the director of what is now the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts at the festival site, recently confirmed the helicopter story with the medevac pilot, who said the mother gave birth at the hospital. 4. Max Yasgur was not a country bumpkin Yasgur told the young crowd massed on his field he was a farmer not used to speaking to groups. Self-deprecation aside, he ran a large dairy operation with a large herd, trucks and its own plant. Nephew Marty Miller said that he warned his uncle months earlier that Woodstock’s organizers might come knocking,

and that Yasgur was ready when it happened. Lang in his memoir describes Yasgur as a “sharp guy.” Miller said that beyond rent money, Yasgur benefited from improvements to the field, such as wells. “Max was an astute businessman, very sharp. He was nobody’s fool,” Miller said. 5. Woodstock was not exactly three days of peace and music The famous concert poster with a bird perched on a guitar neck advertised “three days of peace and music,” spanning from Aug. 15-17. There was undisputedly music at Woodstock, and many attendees reportedly spent the weekend blissed out. But Woodstock lasted more than three days. Thanks to delays, it bled into the morning of Aug. 18. Jimi Hendrix came on stage after the sun came up, after a large portion of the crowd had left.
