RALEIGH — North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue has only a few pieces of legislation left to consider before a bill-signing deadline.

Perdue last week signed 102 of the 108 bills that the General Assembly placed on her desk before it adjourned Aug. 11.

She signed 43 on Friday, including legislation that expands a prison indoor smoking ban to the grounds surrounding them. Others make largely minor changes to election and campaign finance laws, although one allows children as young as 16 pre-register to vote.

Two others adjusted the state’s sentencing grid in a move hat could reduce the need for another 2,100 prison beds.

The governor has through Sept. 10 to sign or veto the remaining bills. Those not considered by then automatically become law.

RALEIGH — North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue is joining the Cherokee Indians in opening a designer golf course as the tribe expands its tourist offerings around its Smoky Mountains reservation.

Perdue was traveling to the grand opening Monday of the Sequoyah National Golf Club, which is owned by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

The course was built to a layout created by designer Robert Trent Jones II to take advantage of mountain vistas on every hole. Greens fees are $85 weekdays and $110 on weekends.

The Cherokees opened a casino 11 years ago and use half the profits to run the tribal government and half for payments to tribal members.
