Election profiles: Candidates for N.C. Senate

The Macon County League of Women Voters hosted a candidates forum last Thursday for the 50th senate district of North Carolina. Incumbent Jim Davis and challenger Jane Hipps squared off and fielded questions posed by league members.

Although not a native to Macon County, Sen. Jim Davis got his start in politics as a county commissioner. Davis was born in 1947 in Lynchburg, Virginia. He grew up in a military family, his father a sergeant in the US Air Force, and his mother a homemaker. He has lived on military bases in Virginia, Michigan, Arizona, Delaware, Morocco, and England.

State’s MEC holds last public comment period of ‘fracking’ at WCU

North Carolina's Mining and Energy Commission (MEC) held the last of a fourpart public comment series last Friday at Western Carolina University's Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center. Proponents and opponents alike were on hand for the event where a panel made up of three members from the MEC listened to concerns from the citizens.

Hydraulic fracturing has been subject of much concern across North Carolina with multiple forums across the state being packed out ever since a moratorium was lifted that would allow the extraction of natural gas by injecting high pressure fluids thousands of feet deep into the ground in order to break up shale formations and release natural gas.
