Local Awards Get Rolling 

Morisen records hosts CMJ showcase in November

When Mecklenburg County manager Jones announced his intentions to fund a tax cut with lottery proceeds meant for school construction, Easley was apoplectic. Never mind that he’d urged passage of lottery legislation that allowed just what Jones was planning to do. (Language that prohibited lottery money from supplanting local funds had been removed from the bill somewhere along the way.) The county countered by saying that, regardless, the schools are still getting more money than before. Either way, it’s just proof that North Carolina is well on its way to bearing out some lottery opponents’ predictions.
