DURHAM — A city in the Research Triangle region of North Carolina will be slammin’ for a few days.

The Herald-Sun of Durham reports that the 2009 Southern Fried Poetry Slam began there Thursday and continues Friday and Saturday. The event is in its 17th year and travels each year to a different Southern city.

This year’s Southern Fried Poetry Slam is being held at the Hayti Heritage Center.

In a poetry slam, judges chosen from the audience score the poets on a scale of zero to 10. Poets have a limited amount of time to present their work and may have no props other than copies of their poems.

GREENSBORO — Authorities in North Carolina say the woman who drowned in a rain-swollen creek apparently rode her mo-ped past a roadblock intended to keep her from trying to ride through the water.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported on its Web site Thursday that 50-year-old Roseanne Marie Minton Tippett of Browns Summit drowned Wednesday evening after jumping into the creek and being swept away.

The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office said a state Highway Patrol trooper was blocking traffic at the creek after it overwashed the road. Investigators say Tippett rode into the creek, but was rescued after the trooper used a rope from his cruiser to pull her to safety.

While the trooper went back to his car, Tippett jumped into the creek again and was swept away.
