Thief On Video and Using His ID

He was on in-store video surveillance and showed them a photo ID, so Police have the name of the thief and warrants have been issued for his arrest.  Wilkesboro Police were called to Walmart regarding a shoplifting and theft of some video games.  Store management watched the white male removed the video games from their packaging inside the store.  They attempted to detain the man, but he was able to get away from store staff and leave without paying.  The man left the area on foot, so Police began tracking him through the nearby area.  Police stopped at the GameStop and asked if they had recently received some video games for cash.  They had and the list of games was the same as the ones stolen from Walmart earlier in the day.  In-store surveillance was obtained of the suspect, and Police were able to get the suspect's name as he had to show a photo ID to sell the video games.  Charges are now pending an arrest of the suspect from Moravian Falls.

She Didn't, But Someone in Her Name Did

It appears a North Wilkesboro woman may be the victim of Identity Theft.  Wilkesboro Police were called by the victim this week.  She said that her employer said they had received a FAX concerning unemployment benefits.  The victim explained that she had not filed for any benefits and called the Unemployment Office.  After speaking with an agent at the unemployment office, she was advised to go online and fill out a Social Security Fraud Report.  She was also advised to contact her bank.  There is no word on suspects at this time.  Police and the victim are still gathering information and paperwork on the ID Theft.

SAFEKids Car Seat Check Saturday

SafeKids Wilkes County in partnership with Empire Chevrolet will be sponsoring a free child safety seat check on Saturday September 20, 2014 from 8:00am-12:00pm at Empire Chevrolet in recognition of Seat Check Saturday. Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. Many times deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts. The goal of Seat Check Saturday is to make sure all parents and caregivers are correctly securing all children in the right car restraints (rear-facing car seat, forward-facing car seat, booster seat or seat belt) for their ages and sizes. Only 46 % children ages 4-7 were properly restrained in booster seats in 2013. From 2008 to 2012, more than 3,390 children were killed in car crashes, and an estimated 613,000 children were injured. In 2012, 121,000 children under age 13 were injured as passengers in car crashes. In 2012, 37% of children killed in car crashes were not in car seats, booster seats, or seat belts. Again, SafeKids Wilkes County in partnership with Empire Chevrolet will be sponsoring a free child safety seat check on Saturday September 20 from 8:00am-12:00pm at Empire Chevrolet on Hwy 421.

90-Year-Old Student at WCC

You're never too old to learn, and Wilkes Community has a 90-year-old student to prove it. Jean Miller, of Laurel Springs, N.C., believes that learning is an ageless process, and this 90-year-old woodworking student at Wilkes Community College is a shining example of a lifelong learner.  “I went to high school in Sparta. That’s what I had to start with and then I have an associate’s degree from WCC. But I didn’t get that until I was 62."  The ageless Miller said, "I just always wanted to go to school. After my kids all got out of school, I had the opportunity, and I just went."  "I didn’t really mean to get a degree. I just wanted to go to school,” explained Miller. She graduated WCC with an Associate's Degree in May 1986.  Years ago when Miller graduated from high school, she worked in a factory and then as a waitress. She spent eight years working at Doughton Park, a 7,000-acre park on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Then she worked at High Meadows Golf and Country Club in Roaring Gap, N.C., for 17 years. When she left High Meadows, she joined her husband in operating Miller’s Campground in Laurel Springs and started taking classes at WCC. She has been taking classes ever since. Miller says that she enjoys talking to students in the class and seeing what projects they are doing. And she says the class helps stimulate her mind. Through the years, Miller has encouraged others to take classes. Miller added, “Once you get an education, you can’t ever run through it and nobody can take it away from you.”

Gov McCrory and the State's Military

Governor Pat McCrory met with the Military Affairs Commission at Cherry Point this week to hear from members and local officials about the status of the state's military installations, the Reserves and the National Guard. The governor also addressed the group, reminding them of his commitment to supporting and strengthening the state's military presence and personnel. Governor McCrory said. "To that end, I’ve signed into law legislation that protects installations from encroachment so the military can conduct training to fulfill its assigned missions. In the General Assembly, we’ve garnered support for National Guard infrastructure modernization and improvements." Speaking about recent legislative accomplishments, the governor mentioned signing into law a bill creating the equivalent of in-state tuition for veterans at our state’s community colleges and universities. He also discussed legislation he signed that provides college credit for military experience, as well as for professional licensing and certification.  The governor cautioned that despite these recent successes, more needs to be done to ensure the state's proud military heritage stays strong.

Sen Hagan on Fighting ISIS/ISIL

During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing this week, U.S. Senator Kay Hagan, Chair of the Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee, questioned Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey about their plans to deal with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). “I am pleased that the strategy the Administration has developed for defeating ISIS includes training and equipping the moderate Syrian opposition,” Hagan said. Among her questions to Secretary Hagel and General Dempsey, Hagan focused on what the Administration’s plan is to attack and disrupt the funding streams that support ISIS and pressed the witnesses for details about the leadership of the moderate Syrian opposition. Additionally, Hagan expressed concern about radicalized Westerners, and even Americans, currently fighting with ISIS and how recruitment efforts by ISIS and other terrorist groups could be stopped.

Wilkes County Financial Report Good News

It was good news for the county according to the Financial Report the Wilkes Commissioners received this week.  Wilkes Finance Officer Jerry Shepherd told Commissioners that Standard and Poor's Rating Services has raised the credit rating for Wilkes.  Recently, Wilkes went from an A+ up one notch on the rating to a AA-.  Also the SPUR rating increased from an A to an A+.  The rating increases reflect the county's financial stability at this time.  Also Shepherd said that while the bad news in July was that the expenses exceeded revenue, the good news for August was that the revenues exceeded expenses by 6.9 million dollars.  Commissioners also discussed the November 1 opening of the New Detention Center or New Jail thus ending the inmate housing costs to other facilities.  In fact,  the Dedication of the new Wilkes County Detention Center will be held on Wednesday, October 22 at 3:00 pm.
