Lumbees concerned about rule on eagle feathers

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

PEMBROKE, NC (AP) — Members of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina are upset over a new federal rule making it illegal for tribe members to carry eagle feathers.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that a Justice Department rule that took effect last month only allows members of federally recognized tribes to have the feathers of birds protected by federal law.

Tribal attorney Ed Brooks says the policy is unconstitutional and attacks tribes that are not recognized by the federal government. He says the Justice Department cannot create a policy that singles out one tribal people over another.

The tribal council has passed a resolution saying the tribe should be allowed to have eagle feathers. The Lumbee Tribe is recognized by the state but does not have the full federal recognition.

E. coli at NC county fair like 2011 State Fair bug

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — State health officials say the strain of E. coli bacteria that caused a fatal outbreak at the Cleveland County Fair is similar to the bug that sickened two dozen visitors to last year’s state fair.

Officials at the state Department of Health and Human Services said Monday that new lab evidence and interviews with more than 150 county fair visitors who didn’t get sick traced the outbreak to E. coli O157.

The research that’s honed in on the source of the outbreak led officials to reduce their count of those sickened to 60 children and 38 adults. Four were from South Carolina.

A 2-year-old died of complications from the bacterial illness. Officials said 12 individuals have been or are currently hospitalized.
