NC looks into licensing of ‘Extreme Makeover’ home

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — North Carolina officials are looking into whether a Fayetteville charity that appeared on the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” television show has a license to solicit donations.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that the secretary of state’s office can find no license for the charity that operates the Jubilee House.

The shelter for homeless women military veterans was refurbished as part of the television program last year. About 4,000 volunteers, including first lady Michelle Obama, donated time to repairing the 5,000-square-foot home.

The Navy veteran who runs the charity, Barbara Marshall, did not immediately respond to questions about the licensing issue.

An informal group of advisors to the charity is scheduled to meet Tuesday.

NASCAR’s Mayfield indicted on larceny charges

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

HUDSON, N.C. (AP) — Former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield has
been indicted in Caldwell County on four counts of felony larceny,
one week after he was indicted in neighboring Catawba County.

A grand jury on Monday indicted the 42-year-old Mayfield in
connection with the theft of trailers and furniture.

Mayfield was indicted in Catawba County on three counts of
possessing property stolen from businesses, and a fourth charge of
obtaining property by false pretense.

It’s the latest in a series of troubles for Mayfield. He was
suspended from NASCAR after failing a random drug test at Richmond
in May 2009. He was in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in
Richmond last month to argue his lawsuit seeking reinstatement as a
NASCAR driver should be heard by the courts.
