CAMP LEJEUNE — North Carolina’s two senators plan to meet with military leaders to discuss past water contamination at Camp Lejeune.

Republican Sen. Richard Burr and Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan will meet Wednesday afternoon with Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Conway.

Burr has proposed a bill that would grant care at a VA facility to any veteran or family member who was based at Camp Lejeune and suffers from adverse health effects.

Water was contaminated by dry cleaning solvents and other sources at the base’s major family housing areas, and health officials believe as many as 1 million people may have been exposed
before the wells were closed 22 years ago.

NC city council unmoved on potbellied pig as pet

FAYETTEVILLE — A North Carolina family who wanted to keep a potbellied pig they said comforts their autistic son has failed to squeeze an exception out of city officials.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Wednesday that the city council deadlocked on a proposal that would have allowed Loopey to return from a ranch to its home in a city subdivision. The council considered giving the city manager authority to grant exemptions to the hog ban under conditions that included a doctor’s note saying the animal was needed to help treat a medical ailment.

Lisa Pia and Bobby Tibbetts say the pig is therapeutic for their autistic 8-year-old son.

Councilwoman Val Applewhite said resident hogs might hurt property values and generate bad odors.
