NAACP airs concern over school split

Rocky Mount's Chapter of the NAACP is concerned race is the motivation behind Nash County Commissioner's recent questioning of a county line merger of the school system.
Andre Knight spoke before commissioners on Monday morning at the board's regular meeting.
Knight said race has always been included on discussions of publicly funded education. When the merger into the Nash-Rocky Mount School System occurred in 1992, Knight said the region was still struggling with race relations, economic growth and prosperity.

DENR report recommends changes to auto emissions testing program

That was the conclusion of a study the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources provided the General Assembly recently.
Legislators in 2013 directed DENR to conduct a study on whether all of the counties covered under the motor vehicle emissions testing program are needed to meet and maintain current and proposed federal ozone standards in North Carolina.
