US Supreme Court to hear NC native on healthcare

Monday, March 26th, 2012

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) — The US Supreme Court is hearing from a Washington lawyer with North Carolina roots it picked as the devil’s advocate on the first day of hearings on the health care reform law.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports the Supreme Court asked Robert Long to argue a legal point that neither the Obama administration nor the law’s challengers think applies.

The issue is whether courts must wait until after the law’s individual mandate and accompanying penalties take effect in 2015 before considering the law.

The high court appointed Long to argue reasons why courts must wait a few years before ruling whether the law can require everyone to buy health insurance or pay a penalty.

Long is a graduate of Reynolds High School and was a Morehead Scholar at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Biltmore Estate explores China as wine market

Monday, March 26th, 2012

ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) — The luxurious North Carolina estate established by the Vanderbilt family is exploring China as a possible market for wines it sells under Biltmore Estate’s brand name.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports that one of the company’s executives is on a US government-sponsored trade mission to China running through Wednesday. The US Agriculture Department trip puts business leaders in touch with dozens of Chinese producers, importers, buyers, distributors and investors.

Other companies attending range from cranberry marketers and vegetable growers to seafood distributors and pork producers.

Biltmore Estate’s wine president Jerry Douglas says the company is putting out feelers about tapping into the Chinese market. He says decisions will come later on how the estate may explore selling or distributing wine in China.
