Monday Local 411

Alamance County’s noise ordinance will get some attention at tonight’s County Commissioners meeting. There’s been a complaint from someone in Saxapahaw that neighbors are firing their guns just randomly all times of day, and he says it’s disturbing and should be a violation of the noise ordinance if nothing else. Now, the Alamance County noise ordinance DOES talk about music and televisions, and about construction and demolition noise at night, but says nothing about firearms.



Starting in June, if you’re going into one of Alamance County’s courthouses, you will have to leave your smart phone behind. County Commissioners have voted to ban the devices after hearing from judges and the Sheriff. The current law says it’s okay to HAVE your phone, but you cannot use it in the courtroom. But Judge Brad Allen and Sheriff Terry Johnson say people are not complying with that law. They say Bailiff’s are catching folks every day taking pictures, texting or even recording the proceedings. When the new law takes effect, there will be rental lockers by the door where you can stash your phone and pick it back up on the way out.



Some teachers in Alamance County could be in for a bonus. ABSS is thinking about offering up to $4,000 dollars to teachers who apply to teach at Broadview, Turrentine or Graham Middle school…and STAY at the school. The plan would also give them $500 if they return the next year. $250 dollars if their students meet expected growth and $500 if they EXCEED expected growth. All of these incentives would be paid every 6 months.



If you’re wondering what to do after High School, here’s something that might help. The Alamance Burlington School system is having a college fair event today at Holly Hill Mall. Students and parents are invited to talk to representatives from more than 50 public and private colleges and universities from North Carolina and across the country. And if you’re thinking of taking a few years off to travel the world…or just want to check out how the GI Bill might help you…there will also be military recruiters there to answer your questions. That’s at Holly Hill Mall today from 5pm tp 8pm.

Wedding bells were ringing at Burlington's YoZone...


 Vanessa Manley and Jack Jordan chose the popular frozen yogurt store as the perfect venue for their wedding. It's where they met and where they work, so they decided it should be where they married.


YoZone owner David Higham says the manager at the store even agreed to officiate the wedding. Higham says Manager Thornton Wooding applied for and received certification from the state so he could make the event legally binding.


The bride and groom also had the reception there at YoZone in Holly Hill Mall, with cookies, cake and, of course, frozen yogurt for the two dozen or so attendees.

  The wedding was held Saturday. Both Jack and Vanessa, dedicated employees that they are, worked the following day before leaving for their honeymoon.
