FIRST ON 3: Magistrate explains decision not to arrest Soles

Friday, September 16th, 2011

COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The magistrate who issued a criminal summons for R.C. Soles yesterday says there was no reason to arrest the former senator, who was accused of beating a man.

Magistrate Tucker Ward says it was left to his discretion whether to arrest Soles or to serve him with a criminal summons.

Soles is charged with assault with a deadly weapon after Frankie Lee Jernigan claimed soles hit him in the face with a metal cane.

Ward says Soles decided to only issue the summons because he believes Soles is not a flight risk. The former senator is scheduled for a hearing on October 21.

Duke, Progress want limits on NC’s merger hearings

Friday, September 16th, 2011

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Duke Energy and Progress Energy are asking North Carolina regulators to skip consideration of the economy in deciding whether to approve the companies’ merger into the country’s largest electric utility.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday the companies want the North Carolina Utilities Commission to refuse to hear arguments by critics that this is a bad time in the nation’s economy to allow a merger that will lead to big layoffs.

Environmental groups and other nonprofits want to make their case at merger hearings beginning Tuesday. They say Charlotte-based Duke and Raleigh-based Progress haven’t proposed a way to limit the economic damage the state will suffer after the companies eliminate hundreds of jobs.

State law requires the benefits of the merger to outweigh its costs and risks.
