In Case You Missed It

Tuesday night, trustees of Cape Fear Community College’s administrative and personnel committee approved the creation of a campus police force. The current security team is contracted through an outside group and is on campus 24/7; however, their actions are limited to talking and calling the police, which has been determined to be inadequate for the 5th largest college campus in North Carolina. A campus police force would guarantee all officers are appropriately trained and would take 3-5 years to establish. The full board still needs to approve this decision. Their vote will take place on this coming Tuesday, October 2nd. If voted in, the police force would have to be approved on the state and national levels.
GE Hitachi has been approved to build a uranium enrichment plant in Castle Hayne, an approval process that has taken a few years. Before the recession, the uranium industry was growing. Now, GE must decide if the plant is an appropriate $1 billion investment. If they do decide to build, they will create approximately 680 jobs in our area throughout the build time by employing construction workers. The money spent would seep into the economy, resulting in about 3,000 jobs. After the plant is built, there will be 350 permanent jobs. The next step in their decision is a more thorough look at costs and demand.
