One of world’s worst weeds found in Pender County

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

PENDER COUNTY, NC (TOPSAILADVERTISER.COM) — If you are a gardener there are probably lots of weeds that top your list as being among the world’s worst. Plants like crabgrass and chamber bitter come to mind.

These prolific garden weeds are certainly annoying but at least they stay confined to cultivated areas. Some weeds don’t. Some weeds invade natural areas, smother out native species, and alter ecosystems forever.

One of the world’s worst is cogongrass, which was recently found in North Carolina for the first time near Burgaw.

NC Senate gives final approval to its budget plan

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) – The Senate and House have now approved competing budget bills for North Carolina state government for the coming year.

The Senate on Thursday completed the final required votes for a proposed $20 billion plan, approving the Republican-developed proposal on a party-line vote. The Senate version goes to the House, setting the stage for negotiations between the two chambers. The House passed its version two weeks ago.

The final compromise will go to Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue. She vetoed last year’s budget, but legislators overturned the veto.

Thursday’s Senate vote was marked by a Republican amendment unanimously defeated that would have raised sales taxes by three-quarters of a cent. The GOP rolled out the amendment to try to put Democrats on the record about their support for tax increases.
