In Case You Missed It
A lightning strike on Monday night (July 23) set a wooded area of Ogden Park near Planters Walk subdivision ablaze. Firefighters were able to get the fire under control. After 4 hours, it charred 10 acres, but didn’t touch the park facilities. The park was closed and parts reopened on Tuesday.
North Carolina film production numbers in 2012 have already surpassed those of 2011. This is a new record. Productions are expected to spend $300 million in North Carolina and create over 15,000 jobs. They have or will be filming in 35 out of 100 of North Carolina’s counties. Officials credit the state’s film incentives for this increase.
Mercury emissions from the 14 coal powered electrical plants in North Carolina have decreased over 70% in the past decade. Before the General Assembly passed the Clean Smokestacks Act in 2002, 3,350 pounds of mercury emissions were recorded. Now, those emissions measure at 960 pounds. These plants are being converted to natural gas and should be completed in 2014, by which time almost none will be emitted by in-state facilities.
