GREENSBORO — A major North Carolina hospital is pitching tents to battle the spread of swine flu.

The Greensboro News & Record reported Wednesday that two tents in the Moses Cone Hospital parking lot are the first stop for patients seeking treatment for flu symptoms.

The idea is to cut the spread of the H1N1 flu virus by keeping those infected isolated and take the load off the hospital’s emergency room.

Hospital officials say the tents are heated and cooled and would be filled with medical equipment and emergency room staff. Patients will be evaluated there and admitted to the hospital if necessary.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates more than 1 million Americans have been infected with swine flu, with many suffering mild cases never reported.

CHARLOTTE — A North Carolina congressman dashing to catch a plane dumped his SUV at the end of a row of properly parked cars at Charlotte’s airport.

The Gaston Gazette reports Wednesday that Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry parked his Ford Explorer straddling a curb in a parking lot at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport on Sunday.

The front tires were on the curb. The back tires were in the driving area of the parking lot, one resting atop a yellow speed bump.

McHenry spokesman Brock McCleary said the congressman was running late and couldn’t find a parking spot. He says McHenry made a mistake by not parking properly, and the car has been moved.

McHenry is serving his third term in the U.S. House.

Judge dismisses case against NC city over shooting

FAYETTEVILLE — A federal judge has dismissed a civil lawsuit filed by the family of a man killed by a North Carolina police officer during a traffic stop.

Fayetteville Police Officer Bart Suggs shot Calvin Kent Wilson of Hope Mills after pulling the man over in November 2005. Court documents said Suggs repeatedly asked Wilson to get out of his sports utility vehicle, but Wilson reached toward a handgun on the floor, and Suggs fired.

One of Wilson’s relatives sued the city in 2007 for wrongful death and an unlawful traffic stop. But the Fayetteville Observer reported Wednesday that a federal judge Monday granted the city’s request to dismiss the case.

Suggs was cleared by prosecutors in 2006.
