McCrory staff demanding payment for public records

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – As a candidate, Pat McCrory pledged a transparent and accountable government. But now that he is governor, those seeking access to public records are often met with long delays and unprecedented demands for payment.

McCrory’s staff has interpreted a sentence in North Carolina’s public records law as providing broad authority for a “special service charge” on any documents taking more than 30 minutes for an employee to retrieve, copy and return. The fees are in contrast to the primary principle in the law, which states that such records “are the property of the people” and that copies should be promptly provided for “free or at minimal cost.”

Lawyers representing some of the state’s largest newspapers and broadcasters say the payment demands are unjustified and improper.

Bobcats, Wells Fargo, to provide Thanksgiving meal

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – The Charlotte Bobcats have come up with an assist for local low-income families.

The NBA team and Charlotte-based Wells Fargo provided 1,000 Thanksgiving meals for the annual Cats Care Cornucopia on Tuesday at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Coca-Cola and Food Lion also participated.

The entire Bobcats team and coaching staff, along with team president and COO Fred Whitfield and president of basketball operations Rod Higgins, were on hand to distribute the food.

Each meal contained enough food to feed a family of four, resulting in approximately 4,000 people being served.

Every meal includes turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, a variety of vegetables, cranberry sauce, and a two-liter bottle of soft drink.
