AP-NC–NC Pension Fund NC pension fund generates positive annual return

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

RALEIGH. N.C. (AP) – North Carolina’s pension fund for public employees netted positive returns for the previous fiscal year as fixed income investments outpaced stocks, particularly international shares.

State Treasurer Janet Cowell announced Friday the overall North Carolina Retirement Systems generated a 2.2 percent return for the year ending June 30 despite a 1.2 percent decline in the final three months of the fiscal year.

Cowell said the fund was paced by a nearly 12 percent return in its bond portfolio last year even while its global stock portfolio saw a 6 percent loss. Real estate and private equity components also yielded positive returns.

The retirement system’s assets were $74.5 billion as of June 30. More than 850,000 teachers, state employees, law enforcement officers and others get retirement benefits and savings through the system.

Accused terror plotters receive long prison terms

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) – Two men convicted of being members of a North Carolina-based terror ring that aspired to kill U.S. military personnel are facing long prison terms.

A federal judge on Friday sentenced accused ringleader Daniel Patrick Boyd to 18 years. Boyd is a 42-year-old Muslim convert who lived near Raleigh who pleaded guilty in 2011 to charges of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and plotting murders overseas.

In June, a jury found 36-year-old Anes Subasic guilty of the same charges. The Bosnian native got a 30-year sentence.

Prosecutors said the men were members of a terrorist cell who raised money, stockpiled weapons and trained for jihadist attacks against those they considered enemies of Islam. All seven charged, including two of Boyd’s sons, were either U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents.
