News & Notes 7/17

Posted by: Editor-Bonitta Best on Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 12:00:00 am

Republican Mayor Adam O’Neal of Belhaven, North Carolina, began a 14-day, 273-mile walk to the Nation’s Capitol on Monday. O’Neal plans to petition politicians for help with health care in his rural community. The area recently saw the closure of Pungo District Hospital, which served more than 23,000 people. Finally, a Republican who gets it! Instead of trying to “get back at the black man in office” state leaders should put up more concern toward their constituents. Then maybe they’d change course.

• Another scam in the works. NC Quick Pass customers are receiving fraudulent emails stating they have an outstanding toll balance. Of course, there’s a link to pay the invoice. Once you do, your account will be cleaned out. NC Quick Pass folks say they NEVER request payment via email. Call 877-769-7277 with any questions.

• The homeowners insurance rate hearing originally scheduled for Aug. 6 has been rescheduled to Oct. 20, 9 a.m. in the Jim Long Hearing Room at 430 N. Salisbury St. Make your voices heard. Those greedy insurance companies are asking for a 25.3 percent increase in insurance rates.
