Former UNC coach ordered to turn over phone bills

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A judge has ordered former University of North Carolina football coach Butch Davis to hand over records of calls made on his personal cell phone related to his job duties.

Superior Court Judge Howard E. Manning Jr. signed an order Wednesday ordering Davis to hand over his phone records, which had been requested as public records by numerous media organizations, including The Associated Press. Those requests had been rejected by the university, which has faced NCAA sanctions related to violations involving the football team while Davis was coach.

Manning’s order gives Davis 30 days to hand over his phone bills that include records of calls made as part of his official job duties. The judge will allow the university to erase Davis’ personal calls from the records.

Wilmington-based ethanol-maker gets USDA backing for fuel plant

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A company that wants to turn grass grown on North Carolina hog farms into motor fuel is getting the federal backing it wants to build an ethanol plant.

The US Agriculture Department said Wednesday it is giving Wilmington-based Chemtex International Inc. a loan guarantee worth nearly $100 million.

Chemtex plans to build an ethanol plant in Sampson County that will convert high-energy grass varieties into ethanol. The company is signing up hog farms to grow the grasses on spray fields, turning that land into a new cash crop for farmers.

The Agriculture Department says the project will help reduce foreign oil dependence, increase farm income, and create rural jobs. The Chemtex plant is expected to employ about 65 people. Average salaries are projected to be about $50,000 annually.
