NC Health Advice for Diabetics 

Because temperatures are reaching dangerous highs this time of year, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services' Division of Public Health is encouraging people with diabetes to take extra precaution to maintain healthy blood glucose levels.  According to the North Carolina Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System survey, at least 750,000 people in North Carolina live with diabetes. Managing diabetes is important in any season, but hot weather requires extra precautions. Time spent creating routines and preparing for emergencies is the key to a safe and enjoyable summer. The North Carolina Diabetes Education Recognition program, recently recertified by the American Diabetes Association, urges people with diabetes when traveling to - Shield medications and medical equipment from high heat and direct sunlight, and never leave them in a hot car.   As for food choices, - Limit sweetened or alcoholic beverages and foods with high sugar and fat content. High fiber foods such as whole grains and vegetables are great choices to stay healthy. For more information on Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs in your area visit Diabetes North Carolina online at http://www.diabetesnc.com/.

NC Gov and NC Congresswoman on Sanctuary Cities

Governor Pat McCrory says he is opposed to sanctuary cities and there is no place for them in North Carolina.  “I don’t believe in the concept of sanctuary cities because every law enforcement officer is sworn to uphold not only the constitutional law of North Carolina but also the laws of the United States, and that includes immigration laws,” said Governor McCrory.  “I don’t believe anyone should give sanctuary in any part of our state and nation where we are not enforcing the laws, especially toward people who continue to commit violent crimes.” The governor expressed specific concern about criminal cartels that are now operating in North Carolina.  “We cannot allow any sanctuary for drug traffickers, human traffickers or violent criminals in our state,” said Governor McCrory.  The governor made the remarks this week at the 2015 Annual Training Conference of the North Carolina Sheriff’s Association.  Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., last week voted in favor of legislation that would ban so-called sanctuary cities from receiving certain taxpayer-funded grants from the U.S. Department of Justice.   The term “sanctuary cities” refers to nearly 300 communities that have adopted laws or policies that limit the extent to which local authorities can assist the federal government on immigration matters.  H.R. 3009, the Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act, passed the House by a vote of 241-179.

More Stolen US Flags from Local Businesses

Flags are making news again her in Wilkes.  Apparently, 3 local businesses had flags stolen the same night.  Wilkesboro Police were called to the Bestway Rent to Own at Mall Square on Tuesday morning.  The owner reported that their American Flag hanging outside the front door had been stolen.  Also two other neighboring businesses at Mall Square, Colossal Clouds and Wilkes Print and Ship, reported their American Flags hanging outside were also stolen overnight Monday.  Unfortunately, neither business had surveillance cameras and there are no suspects.  Just last week, Wilkesboro Police were called to Advantage Storage where an American Flag was stolen from outside that business.  In that incident, video surveillance showed a black female taking the flag.  These flag theft investigations are ongoing by Wilkesboro Police.
