Deadline Approaching For Private/Charter School Lotteries

You might remember we told you earlier this week that Hawbridge School is starting some major construction to house all the new students clamouring to get in. We also mentioned the deadline for signing up for the lottery for admission is March 1st. Just another reminder, all the private and charter schools in Alamance County are fast approaching the deadlines to enter their lotteries.

Elon Continues To Fight Against Union For Instructors

Instructors at Elon University are a step closer to being able to join a union. The National Labor Relations Board says non-tenure track faculty do have that right.

This latest ruling is supposed to mean that Elon has to start negotiating with the union, but the school can still refuse, which would trigger an appeal.

It turns out the man who abducted a 14 year old girl from Denton last week, had also been communicating online with several girls in Alamance County as well.

He said his Human Trafficking Team had been looking for 38 year old William Ice when he took off with the girl from Denton. Sheriff Johnson says they had discovered he was also working on grooming 10 girls here online. As you probably know by now, Ice killed himself when he was caught in Arkansas. He was caught when Sheriff Johnson told them the suspects name, car and license tag. The girl has been returned safely to her family in Denton.

Alamance County Small Businesses Holding Off Bankruptcies

Bankruptcy attorneys say business owners in and around Alamance County are a stubborn bunch. In a story in the Triad Business Journal, some specialists say bankruptcy filings right now are actually down 30 percent. They say small business owners are digging in their heels. They are working out their own arrangements with suppliers, and in some cases, they are using the Paycheck Protection Program. In that story though, the bankruptcy attorneys say they still expect an increase. They say small business owners don’t want to give up, and will wait until every possible chance is gone before they give up on that dream. They say since the Governor is refusing to reopen the economy, many small businesses have used up all their alternatives. 

Hawbridge School Adding Space To Hold K-12

Private schools and Charter schools in Alamance County continue to grow. Hawbridge School says it is ready to start building a 40 thousand square foot expansion.

This expansion and addition will make Hawbridge one of only 4 schools in Alamance County offering K through 12th grade. By the way, for the past 4 years, Hawbridge students have had the highest SAT scores in Alamance County. Applications to get your name into the lottery for admission must be submitted by March 1st so time is getting short. You can check them out at thehawbridgeschool.org.

Vaccination Event Rescheduled For This Saturday

As you probably know already, that vaccine event that had been scheduled for this past weekend at the Burlington Baseball Stadium had to be canceled, when the storms kept the supply of vaccine from making it.

It will one again be at Burlington Athletic Stadium, and will once again be 8am - 2pm.

Burlington Police Chief To Step Down

The Burlington Police Chief has turned in his notice. Chief Jeffrey Smythe says he is ready to move along to the next phase of his professional life, after 8 years as head of the Burlington PD.

Tanger Outlets Donates To Mebane Fire And Police Departments

Tanger Outlets once again showing their appreciation for First Responders in the town of Mebane. Each year, officials with the Outlets make a donation to the Fire and Police Departments. According to a story in the Mebane Enterprise, this year it was $3,000. They’ve been doing this since the Tanger Outlets opened in 2010. You might remember we told you a few weeks ago, Tanger Outlets were the brainchild of a Burlington man, Steven Tanger, back in the 1980’s, when he bought BMOC. He then went on to build more than 30 such outlets in 19 states and Canada.

United Way Volunteers Once Again Help With Taxes

A reminder for anyone getting ready to do their taxes. The Alamance County United Way can help out there. The VITA program will once again do your taxes for free. VITA stands for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance. Their folks are all IRS certified, and the whole thing can be done without you ever having to look anyone in the face. You just drop off the paperwork, they fill everything out and file the forms online. You come by and pick up your records. You do have to make an appointment though. So go to myfreetaxes.com or get someone else to click and register.

 

And this might be a good time to remind you, the IRS will never ever get in touch with you by email or on social media. The IRS will never threaten to have you arrested or deported for not paying. They will never ask you to pay using a gift card, prepaid debit card or a wire transfer and they will never ask you to share sensitive information like your social security number by email, text or social media.

Bill Would Force Law Enforcement Agencies To Cooperate

The North Carolina General Assembly is looking at a bill that would require all law enforcement agencies to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Agents. The bill would require them to determine the citizenship of anyone arrested for a felony, and if they turn out to be here illegally, they would be required to hold them for 48 hours, to give ICE a chance to come pick them up. You might recall Sheriff’s in Wake, Durham and Mecklenberg counties have said enforcing the law hurts their relationships with local latino communities. Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson of course has been a strong advocate for enforcing all our laws, including those against illegal immigration, and cooperating with other law enforcement agencies like ICE.

Alleged Drug Dealer Charged In Death Of Alamance County Man

It’s something law enforcement is doing more of these days. A Greensboro man has been charged with murder in an Alamance County death. Investigators say 27 year old Nicholas James Blackwell of Greensboro sold the drugs that killed the user back in October of last year. He’s charged with death by distribution.

Virtual Burlington City Council Session Today

The Burlington City Council has a couple of hot potatoes on their agenda today. We told you about a request from the Greensboro developer who bought Shamrock Golf Course, and wants to increase the number of houses he wants to build there. The Planning Commission has pointed out that since the lawsuit against that development is still in court, it would not be appropriate to change the arrangement. The Council will also pass judgement on a request to build a Muslim Cemetary on Hanford Rd, near the Catholic Church there. Supporters say it would look more like a park, since Muslims are not allowed to use grave markers.

More honors For Alamance Community College

Officials at Alamance Community College are bragging about yet another honor for the school. The Academic and Career Readiness Program just got a $22,000 grant from United Way. The money will go toward helping adult students get credit for high school work, and help with English as a second language. That’s 1. The second honor is for the Adult Basic Literacy Program. They have gotten a state recommendation for doing a great job. Alamance Community College was one of the first in the state to target folks with learning disabilities. Number 3 is the High School Equivalency program. For the first time, the program at Alamance Community College is available to folks state-wide. Either online or by mail. And finally, ACC has been given a $25,000 grant to expand the online program set up to help immigrants learn English, so they can assimilate into our community. 

Seedlings Still Available For Alamance County Homeowners

If you have been meaning to get some of those seedlings from the county, you need to do it soon. The Alamance County Soil and Water Conservation District says they are running low. So what have they got left? According to their facebook page, there are 22 bundles of loblolly pine and 113 Persimmon seedlings. Reserved them now and pick them up the first week of March. They are on Graham Hopedale Rd, but your best bet at this point is a phone call. 290-0380

No Name Change For Sesquicentennial Park In Graham

That’s a big no from the Graham City Council this week. You might know the backstory that some folks want to change the name of Sesquicentennial Park in Graham to Wyatt Outlaw Park. The council officially discussed the idea earlier this week, but in the end, voted not to pursue the idea. They say that would not be right or fair to everyone who worked so hard and raised all the money to create the current park. Instead, Graham leaders have suggested anyone who wants a park dedicated to Wyatt Outlaw should find a spot, create a committee, and then get out there and raise the money for it. 

Deputies Say They Have 5 Suspects In Gun Theft Ring

The Alamance County Sheriff’s Office says it has finally rounded up the rest of the 5 men they say were involved in a stolen gun ring. The first two arrests came all the way back in December of last year. As deputies investigated, they say they started seeing connections between the first two suspects and 3 other men. It appears some of them were stealing the firearms, and the others were selling them or helping hold them for sale later. At any rate, all 5 men have been arrested and charged.

Teachers Added To List Of Those Getting Covid Vaccine Soon

Alamance County teachers should be able to get their covid 19 shots starting later this month. Governor Roy Cooper says he has put them higher up on the list, and their vaccinations should be available starting February 24th. This is important if public schools are to start back. Here in Alamance County, ABSS schools are scheduled to start back in just a few weeks, and some teachers have said they simply cannot expose themselves that way without the vaccine. Of course, all of our private and charter schools have been open to in-person classes for several months already, with no problems reported.

Burlington Economic Survey Still Available Online

A reminder to Burlington residents to take the survey they’ve got posted for you. The Economic Development folks say they want your input into what you like and don’t like. Economic Development Director Peter Bishop says he will use the results to help make policy and put together a to-do list. There are actually 2 surveys. One for small businesses and one for residents. You can find them both at burlingtonbuilds.com/survey. Bishop says he wants to know what makes Burlington a great place to live and work, and what improvements can be made to draw more people and more businesses, as Alamance County’s population continues to explode.

High School Football To Start This Month

High School football teams are finally getting ready for games. They are allowed to practice now, with limits of course. Some Alamance County high school teams have been shuffled around to different conferences this year. The North Carolina High School Athletic Association says they rearranged the conferences to reduce the amount of travel. Also, instead of an 11 game season, it will be a 7 games season. The first game will be February 26th. As a side note, some schools are not enforcing the grade point average requirement this year. That’s because so many students are failing at least one class. And a reminder, since the attendance at the games will be restricted, your best bet for getting the games is right here on the Maverick. 

Reward Increased For Information On Explosive Devices In Gibsonville

The FBI, the ATF and the Gibsonville Police Department are offering a combined 10 thousand dollars, to whoever can tell them who is responsible for these homemade explosive devices that have been turning up in Gibsonville. Reports are that at least 5 of the devices have now been found along Wood St in the past month or so. You might remember we told you some folks had been reporting hearing explosions in the early morning hours. Then one neighbor found a device and took it to the police. Then a second neighbor found one on his front porch. The FBI was brought in at that point. No one has been injured by the devices so far. 

Roadwork In Mebane To Continue Through The Summer

The town of Mebane is the fastest growing city in Alamance County. We have told you that several times. That is both good news and bad news. We welcome the new folks and hope they will shop local and add to the atmosphere. but they also need places to live and roads to drive on. The Mebane City Council recently got a rundown of all the road projects the state DOT has going or planned for Mebane. The 2 biggest of course are the Highway 119 relocation and the Mebane Oaks Interstate expansion. According to a story in the Mebane Enterprise, the DOT folks say the 119 work should finally be done by summer. But the expansion of Mebane Oaks along the interstate is only just getting started. 

Community Police Advisory Team Looking For Specific Applicants

Burlington Police say they are still trying to fill out their Community Police Advisory Team. You might recall that was one of the demands from protesters last year. Ironically, Burlington already had one advisory group, but it died out from lack of interest - no one showed up for the meetings. Now, they seem to be having problems finding anyone to volunteer to join. They have closed the application process, but say they still need at least one educator, one member under 18 and someone from the legal community.

Alamance County High Schoolers Are The Fastest In The State

A couple of Alamance County teenagers have been shown to be the fastest kids in North Carolina. 16 year old Ryan Motondo of Williams High School just beat out 97 other high school runners, to be named North Carolina’s Cross Country Champion in 3-A. Southern Alamance got there as well, with 17 year old Daniel King coming in 10th.

NC Pharmacies To Start Providing Covid 19 Vaccine

A couple of pharmacy chains in North Carolina are now being included as vaccination locations. More than a million vaccines are going out to 6,500 pharmacies, including CVS and Walgreens. Still no word on which, if any, Alamance County pharmacies will be included. Early word is, those pharmacies should start doing the shots by February 12th.

 

A reminder that there are a couple of new places to get your vaccine now. The Alamance County Health Department has rented space in JR’s shopping center off Alamance Rd south of the interstate. That’s the one with JR’s Cigars and Northern Equipment. And Cone Health has rented out space at the old BMOC. That is north of the interstate off Maple Ave in Burlington. Both of these require an appointment.

Alamance County Commissioners Consider Four Zones For Development Around Snow Camp

That stone quarry in Snow Camp has definitely changed things here in Alamance County. A lot of counties in North Carolina, including Alamance, do not have zoning rules outside any city limits. That Stone Quarry fiasco has changed that. Right now, Alamance County Commissioners are working to develop 4 different development zones for Snow Camp alone. Area residents say they have to have something to go by. The Commissioners are talking about a 6 month moratorium on issuing any permits to develop in southern Alamance County. There will be a public hearing on that on March 1st.

Sock Puppets First Home Game To Be June 5th

The Burlington Sock Puppets say they will have their first home game of 2021 on June 5th. You can probably expect some craziness, as team spokesmen say they want to build on the “are you kidding?” aspect of the name to let everyone know they will be entertained. And remember, there was over a million dollars in renovations at the baseball park just before everything went south with the Major League changes and then the pandemic. The Sock Puppet Season starts June 1st, but the first home game is June 5th.

State Senator Galey Says She Supports Congressional Term Limits

Alamance County’s State Senator has pledged her support to a constitutional amendment, to limit terms anyone can serve in Congress. A national group pushing for that amendment is looking for support from state legislatures. If you remember your civics class, an amendment has to be proposed in Congress, then sent out to the states for them to approve or reject. State Senator Amy Galey says she is in favor of such an amendment.

Alamance County Sees Additional Venues For Vaccinations

Alamance County Commissioners have approved a new indoor facility for getting your vaccination. It is in the building across from JR Cigar outlet. The Alamance County Health Department will be leasing the space for at least 3 months. Alamance County is still only vaccinating people 75 or older. Health officials say they still have nearly 20,000 people who fit that description. Then they say, they can move on to people 65 and older.

Cone Health says it will open a vaccination site starting Thursday in the old BMOC. These vaccinations are by appointment only, and you have to go to their website to sign up. Go to conehealth.com/vaccine. Or text vaccine to 88453 or just call them at 336.890.1188. While the Alamance County Health folks are still doing 75 and older, Cone Health says it can do 65 and older.

Next week, the federal government says they will start sending the vaccine out to local pharmacies. One million doses to 6,500 pharmacies across the country.

Graham Protesters Settle On Rent Relief As Goal

We told you here on the Maverick that protesters down at the old courthouse in Graham appear to have settled on what they are protesting. They say it’s rent relief. The idea that people should not have to pay their landlords, or that the government should pay their rent check for them, since the government imposed lockdown of the economy is what put so many of them out of work. Now, state officials are using some of that Covid relief money created to do that for them. It's called the Housing Opportunities And Prevention of Evictions Program. They say they have nearly 170 million taxpayer dollars to pay the rent  and utilities for those who qualify. So far they say, they have handed out 130 million to 35 thousand households. In some cases, the landlords have applied for their tenants, but if yours has not done that, you can apply. A bill now in the general Assembly would put more money into that program. 

NCDMV Ends Confederate License Tag Option

 

If you have gotten a license tag recently, you know they give you a choice of which one you get. Like: First In Freedom or First In Flight. One choice you will no longer have is a Confederate Flag on the tag. As of January 1st, the North Carolina DMV stopped offering that option. They say they decided some folks might be offended. Eventually of course, those that are out there will sooner or later be turned in.

Deputies say it all happened early Sunday morning on Clark Rd in Snow Camp.

Alamance County Health Officials Allow You To Give Up Your Appointment To Someone Else

 Getting the Covid vaccine out is apparently a lot more complicated than you might think. First, you have to get the doses out to the counties. Then decide who goes first. For instance, should it be the elderly or should it be teachers. Those teachers need it before you can reopen the schools, but the elderly are more likely to die if they get the coronavirus. Then there are the small things, like if I sign up for a shot, but then decide my wife or husband or cousin needs it more, can they take my assigned spot? As for that last question: Health officials in Alamance County say as long as that other person qualifies, they have no problem with you giving up your spot to them. Some other counties say no, you cannot do that.

 

 A quick update for you from the Alamance County Health Department. They say there are a little more than 1,000 people in isolation right now. 42 of those in the hospital. Also they say there have been 213 deaths in Alamance County they attribute to the coronavirus. All of that out of a population of more than 170,000.

We will have to wait to see how bad it will be here in Alamance County.

Tomorrow (Tuesday), the Graham City Council will take up the idea of changing the name of sesquicentennial park, to Wyatt Outlaw Park.

North Carolina A Possible Training Ground For Rioters In Washington DC

It looks like North Carolina is getting some attention as federal authorities investigate those riots in Washington last month. They say they are looking at a group calling themselves the “Oath Keepers” and apparently they had training camps here in North Carolina. Investigators say they have messages from the members, talking about how Oath Keepers from North Carolina would meet them in Washington with buses, and apparently with weapons on the buses. The feds have not made it public just where in North Carolina these training camps were held.

Second Explosive Device Found In Gibsonville

Yet another homemade explosive device has been found on Wood St in Gibsonville, the second in 2 weeks, and police are now offering a $1,000 reward, for anyone who can help them figure out who has been making and setting them off. No one has been injured in those explosions, but obviously government officials do not want that kind of thing going on. They say if you do know anything about the devices, they would appreciate a call at 336.449.6677. You can also call Alamance County Crime Stoppers at 336.229.7100.
