NC regulators scold Duke Energy for secrecy claims

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina utilities regulators are scolding Duke Energy for wrongly keeping secret thousands of internal emails and other documents involving its merger with Progress Energy.

The state Utilities Commission on Friday gave the country’s largest electric company 10 days to produce more than 4,000 pages of the documents for public disclosure.

Utilities regulators and North Carolina’s attorney general are investigating Duke Energy over its surprise ouster of the Progress Energy CEO, who was supposed to take over the combined company.

Duke Energy was forced to turn over documents and marked 5,000 pages as confidential and containing trade secrets. The commission said only 13 percent of the documents contained trade secrets.

The commission says it expects Duke Energy to be more honest in the future about documents containing confidential information.

Edenton police to get training after car crashes

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

EDENTON, N.C. (AP) – Police officers in Edenton are getting additional training behind the wheel after officials say they’ve been involved in 13 crashes over the last seven months.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reports (http://bit.ly/TCTvga ) that Town Manager Anne-Marie Knighton said nine of the 13 crashes were preventable and cost the town $30,000 in patrol car damage. Knighton said she won’t accept the notion that the wrecks amount to a run of bad luck.

One officer who caused two crashes has been suspended two days without pay. Two weeks ago, Police Chief Jay Fortenbery’s cruiser rear ended a car.

Knighton said after the town met with insurance and safety officials from the North Carolina League of Municipalities, it was determined officers will receive additional driver training and could be disciplined for preventable crashes.
