Former Wilkes Doctor Still Without License

A former North Wilkesboro physician who lost his license to practice in 2002 because of a drug conviction has been denied a new license. James Thomas Bowman applied earlier this year for reinstatement, five years after a consent agreement with the N.C. Medical Board that came as a result of his selling drug samples to others for a period of more than four years. Doing so is a violation of federal law. Bowman pled guilty to the charge in June, 2001, and was sentenced tothree months in Federal prison, followed by house arrest and a two-year probation. He applied for reinstatement exactly five years after being sentenced, and the Board issued a denial five years and one week after the letter of consent. In the denial letter available on the board's web site, the reason for denial is given as "past history with the Board, [the need of] an intensive re-entry period and possible further training [because Bowman has not practiced in five years], criminal history, and a probation violation in 2003. At Bowman's request, the board has scheduled a hearing on the matter August 15th.

Statesville Doctor's License Suspended

A Statesville doctor is under disciplinary action by the state because she became involved with a patient. According to records of the North Carolina Medical Board, Dr. Michelle R. Martin had a three-year intimate relationship with an unidentified patient without ending the doctor-patient relationship. The board also alleges Dr. Martin continued to treat this person and prescribed several controlled substances during the relationship. In addition, Martin is accused of prescribing medicines to a family member. Both are considered examples of unprofessional conduct, but are not illegal. The board has susspended Martin's medical license for six month, but is allowing her to practice provided she completes a course on maintaining proper boundaries and one on prescribing controlled substances and that she performs 100 hours of community service.

Missing a Four-Wheeler?

Sheriff deputies have recovered an apparently stolen four-wheeler. They did it with the help of local repair shop owner Denver Eller. He came to have the ATV in a rather odd way. Eller tells deputies sometime last week, he was called by a man who did not give his name, and asked if he could fix a four-wheeler. He told the man to bring it by his house and he'd have a look at it. Now, to most of us, that would mean to drop it off during business hours. When Eller got up Monday morning, there it was, a yellow Suzuki ATV, sitting in his front yard after having been dropped off quietly during the night. He later learned the ATV might be stolen, and called deputies. As of when the report was filed, deputies had not been able to locate any identification numbers on the ATV to run through the national crime database. It may have to be partially disassembled to find one.

Local Woman Charged with Assault

So far, a Wilkes woman doesn't face a charge for assaulting a law officer. But from the description of what happened at her house, that is a possibility when prosecutors review the case. Danielle Weyker is charged with assaulting her boyfriend, Jessie Cortner Monday evening, and ended up on the receiving end of a shot from a Taser when she refused to cooperate with deputies trying to arrest her.

The deputies were called to the couple's home about 7 p-m Monday. They found Cortner with two large welts on his side, and a couple of scratches that looked like claw marks. Cortner said that's what they were, and that they'd come from his girlfriend. After further questioning, deputies learned the scratches came not from her fingers, but from a belt. When a deputy tried to arrest Weyker, she refused to go, told him not to touch her, and ran off. But that was only the beginning. Over the course of the next few seconds, the deputy briefly grabbed her arm and was rewarded with a slash from her fingernails. She continued to refuse to calm down, and after warning her he would use the Taser if she continued what she was doing, the deputy discharged the device into her side, immobilizing her for several seconds. After that, she no longer fought, and was arrested. As of when the crime report was released, she faced charges of simple assault and of resisting arrest.

Lose One, Get Two

Firefighting agencies in the area should be breathing a sigh of relief, now that the North Carolina Forest Service has committed to replace an important piece of aerial wildfire fighting equipment. The Service has been working to eliminate the CL-215 Water Bomber, a plane that can dump 12-hundred gallons of water at a time on remote, hard-to-reach wildfires. According to a news release from 45th district state senator Steve Goss, the division has committed to replacing the single CL-215 that served this part of the state with two Air Tractor AT-802F aerial water tankers. The CL-215 carried 12-hundred gallons, while each of the AT-802's carries 800 gallons. That means total airborne water capacity in the region will go up, and wildfire crews will gain the advantage of the smaller, more maneuverable planes to place water more accurately. The AT-802F is a modified cop spraying aircraft manufactured in the Texas panhandle.

Pressure Washers Stolen Sunday Night

Two Wilkes residents have reported pressure washers stolen in the past few days. Jesse Alexander and William Prevette both made their reports to sheriff deputies yesterday. Alexander says his pressure washer disappeared from the back of his pickup truck, which was parked at his home on Rock Creek Road, sometime overnight Sunday or early Monday. It's a 5-and-a-half horse Campbell-Hausfield washer, worth about 800 dollars. Prevette reports his Troy-Bilt pressure washer, worth 300-dollars, was stolen from his home on Old Highway 60 in Roaring River during the same approximate time-frame. Neither Alexander nor Prevette was able to come up with any possible suspects, and it's unknown at this time if the two cases are related or not.

Support our Troops Plate Available, Pre-Orders Sought

The Support Our Troops! license plate is now available in North Carolina. The extra cost of the Support Our Troops! specialty plate is $30 which will benefit North Carolina active-duty troops and their families. North Carolina residents can download the official Support Our Troops! plate application and get see more information on the North Carolina page of www.SupportOurTroops.org.

Before the DMV will manufacture the plates and place them in tag offices statewide for general sales, the organization which sponsored the plate must assemble an initial group of plate 300 applications using the form provided by the state. Once those 300 are turned in the DMV will make the plate available in the normal manner to everyone statewide.

The Support Our Troops! plate does two things: It shows support for deployed neighbors, and it raises patriotic private money to assist the families of North Carolina troops with education, car repairs, medical and home expenses, family emergencies and immediate finances -- needs that dad or mom could meet if they were home.

The Support Our Troops! license plates is currently available in 23 U.S. states with nine more expected to issue them this year. Support Our Troops will have the plate available in an additional 11 states in 2008.

Extreme Bike Event Saturday in Traphill

The Tour de France isn’t the only place where fit cyclists will be taking on tough terrain this month. Weekend warriors from across the Southeast will descend on Traphill Saturday to test their limits and join the fight against cancer in the fourth annual Hurt, Pain & Agony Metric Century. The American Cancer Society Relay for Life benefit bike ride rolls at 8 a.m.from Traphill Elementary School.

The event will draw riders eager for a challenge. The Hurt, Pain & Agony ride opens with a steep six-mile climb out of the foothills to Roaring Gap atop the Blue Ridge. Plenty of shorter hills follow as the route winds through the highlands of Alleghany County and Grayson County (Va.). Riders will encounter several extreme stretches with grades as steep as those faced by racers in the toughest mountain stages of the Tour de France. Of course, if you go uphill, sometiem you have to come downhill. The 66-mile (106 km.) route includes miles of more forgiving terrain along the Blue Ridge Parkway and quiet country back roads. Riders will fly to the finish line, thanks to a six-mile descent at the end of the ride.

Attorney Asks Judge to Move Parsons Trial

The attorney for former Wilkesboro police chief Gary Parsons has filed a motion for a change of venue of Parsons' court case. He is asking that the case be moved from Wilkes County to Yadkin County. Parsons was removed from the police force last year after pleading guilty to several charges. The charges include dressing up his son in a Wilkesboro police uniform and arming him with a handgun.
