  • Will lawsuits delay Fayetteville Outer Loop/295?

    The Fayetteville Observer ^ | December 5, 2017 | Paul Woolverton
    A Fayetteville lawyer said construction of the Outer Loop highway connecting Interstate 95 north and south of Fayetteville stands to be delayed because of recent rulings in long-running lawsuits between the N.C. Department of Transportation and numerous landowners throughout the state. The rulings, one in Cumberland County Superior Court and another by the state Court of Appeals, rejected attempts by the Department of Transportation to buy people’s land under eminent domain without first paying the owners for the years that they were restricted by law in how they could use their property. Each ruling, by coincidence, was issued Nov. 21....

    Fayetteville, N.C. — A Cumberland County high school teacher has been suspended after he stepped on an American flag as part of a history lesson on Monday. A photo posted on Facebook shows Lee Francis, a history teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School in Fayetteville, standing over an American flag at the front of the class.

    Associated Press ^ | Mar. 14, 2016 7:55 PM EDT
    Authorities in North Carolina say there isn’t enough evidence to press charges against Donald Trump for his behavior in connection with a violent altercation at one of his rallies last week. In a statement issued Monday night, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said legal counsel advised and Sheriff Earl “Moose” Butler agreed that the evidence doesn’t meet the requisites of North Carolina law to support a conviction for inciting a riot. […] An initial statement on Monday said investigators were continuing to look at the rally last Wednesday in Fayetteville, during which a man was hit in the face while...

    I raised an eyebrow at this detail in a WRAL story that’s circulating this afternoon: Last week, Trump visited Concord and Fayetteville in rallies that attracted thousands of attendees. During the rally in Fayetteville, a protester was assaulted as he was escorted from Crown Coliseum by police. A Linden man was later charged in the incident, and Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office investigators said Monday that they are considering filing a charge of inciting a riot against Trump. Fayetteville is where one of Trump’s fans sucker-punched a protester who was being led out of the building. Trump said yesterday that he...

    During a Donald Trump rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina last week John Franklin McGraw punched a protestor being taken out of the event. He has been charged with assault and Trump is looking into how he can pay for McGraw's legal fees as a defendant. In the past, Trump has said protestors should be "taken out on stretchers" and that they should be "punched in the face." He's also said he will pay the legal fees of those who choose to engage protestors in a violent, physical manner. Now, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department is looking into whether Donald Trump...

    Donald Trump said Sunday on Meet the Press that he's looking into paying the legal fees of the 78-year-old supporter who sucker-punched a black protester at a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Wednesday. 'I've actually instructed my people to look into it, yes,' Trump told NBC's Chuck Todd. The Republican frontrunner did a tour of the Sunday shows this morning and was asked questions about the bouts of violence at his campaign events in recent days.

    ... The paths of the 47-year-old military leader and the 26-year-old convicted sex offender crossed eight days ago, in a screeching tangle of rubber and steel near the intersection of West Mountain Drive and Gillespie Street. Fayetteville police say Dunlap's black 2000 Honda Accord was traveling south on Gillespie Street when it crossed a grassy center median, veered into oncoming traffic and smashed into Ratley's 2015 Harley Davidson motorcycle. A makeshift memorial stands — American flags, flowers and a sign — where Ratley lost his life. Dunlap is back behind bars, being held on $100,000 bail on charges of misdemeanor...

    The Pentagon has responded to a globally-released ‘Kill List’, asking law enforcement to give extra protection for military personnel whose personal information was released,News Channel 10 reports. CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports the Pentagon spent the weekend notifying the soldiers who appeared on the list, and urged city police departments and military police to increase patrol in the neighborhoods where the targeted live. The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) published the list days ago, a report that contained names, photos, and home addresses of U.S. Armed Forces personnel, causing alarm in cities potentially at high-risk....

    The most common murder is of a person with a long criminal and violent history, by another person with a  long criminal and violent history.  They usually occur in geographically small areas know for crime and violence, where people have no faith in the police.  David Kennedy has done enormous work in showing that this is so, as has John Lott.  However, what most people don’t understand is that this “acquaintance murder” number also includes gang members killing other gang members, drug buyers killing drug pushers, cabdrivers killed by customers they picked up for the first time, prostitutes and...

    (H/T to Ryan T. Anderson at the Daily Signal) Despite the foaming vitriolic mouths of the Left, calling for the reality-TV star Duggars’ heads, and prophesying TEOTWAWKI, the citizens of Fayetteville, Arkansas chose common sense over granting special LGBT privileges.  They repealed the ordinance passed by their city council in August.  Hooray for democracy, and proving the theory that all politics is local.  The Duggars campaigned in favor of repeal of this ordinance, causing a firestorm of pique and calls for 19 Kids and Counting to be cancelled by TLC. Among other things, the law made it a crime for citizens to engage in...

    A teenage girl is in jail after authorities said she poisoned her grandmother's food on Easter Sunday. Tyt'ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson, 17, of Harrison Street, poured insecticide and termiticide into a cooking pot of collard greens while Gaylon Moody, 51, her grandmother, was at an Easter church service, according to arrest warrants. In a phone interview Thursday night, Moody said the incident happened because she took away Johnson's cellphone. "She was on punishment. I had taken her cellphone from her. She got mad because I took her cellphone from her, and she poisoned my food," Moody said. "I'll tell you one...

    Former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) on Monday night urged voters to replace any Republican lawmaker unwilling to vote to defund ObamaCare during next month's budget showdown. DeMint, the president of the Heritage Foundation, dismissed fears that Republicans would be blamed for a government shutdown, as they were in the 1990s. “The risk of that is so much less than the risk to our country if we implement ObamaCare, and so I’m not as interested in the political futures of folks who think they might lose a showdown with the president,” DeMint said at a town-hall meeting hosted by Heritage Action,...

    EXCLUSIVE--The University of North Carolina, which is currently considering giving illegal immigrants in-state tuition benefits, denied an Army sergeant the same break even though she owns a home in the Tar Heel state and only moved away briefly because the military stationed her husband in Texas. Hayleigh Perez, 26, hoped to use her G.I. Bill to attend the UNC’s Pembroke campus near Fort Bragg, but the young veteran -- who served a 14-month tour in Iraq -- was told she did not qualify as a state resident because she had been gone for about three years. “I got frustrated.

    A mother in Hoke County complains her daughter was forced to eat a school lunch because a government inspector determined her home-made lunch did not meet nutrition requirements. In fact, all of the students in the NC Pre-K program classroom at West Hoke Elementary School in Raeford had to accept a school lunch in addition to their lunches brought from home. NC Pre-K (before this year known as More at Four) is a state-funded education program designed to “enhance school readiness” for four year-olds. The mother, who doesn’t wish to be identified at this time, says she made her daughter...

    One person was killed and at least 85 injured by an apparent tornado that destroyed a wide swath of northern Fayetteville this afternoon, authorities say. The damage spans about eight to 10 miles, from North Reilly Road to north Ramsey Street. In some places, entire neighborhoods were wiped out. The city and Cumberland County have declared states of emergency. "There's been a lot of property damage on Reilly Road and Ramsey Street," Mayor Tony Chavonne said. "It looks like (the tornado) kind of jumped. We've had some injuries, but not a lot." Sally Shutt, a county spokeswoman, confirmed one death...
