Charlotte spending lots on NC, SC water fight

CHARLOTTE — Charlotte officials say they expect to spend $500,000 in the next few months in a water fight between South Carolina and North Carolina.

South Carolina sued North Carolina at the U.S. Supreme Court in 2007 in a battle over the Catawba River. The dispute began after North Carolina regulators allowed Concord and Kannapolis to pipe water from the Catawba into their own river basin.

The Charlotte Observer reported that city attorney Mac McCarley says the city has already spent $833,000.

Charlotte wants to be in the lawsuit because the Catawba is its water supply. Duke Energy wants in because it manages the river under federal license.

The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday that South Carolina can argue that Charlotte and Duke Energy should not participate, saying their involvement would increase expenses.

New Hanover County Sheriff’s want ankle bracelets for domestic violence abusers

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Video

Body

Right now, protective orders may be a victim’s only line of defense, but local law enforcement is trying to change that.

The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office has applied for a grant to purchase ankle bracelets to track domestic violence abusers out of jail on pre-trial release.

The $160,000 grant would help buy ten monitoring devices that would pinpoint their exact location. If they get too close to the victim, police and the victim are alerted.

The sheriff’s office has reapplied for the grant after being denied last year.
