Looking for news you can trust?Subscribe to our free newsletters. A monster snowstorm had just walloped North Carolina, and the city of Greensboro careened to a halt. Families were home building fires, sticking carrot noses in snowmen, sipping mugs of hot cocoa. Dan Smith, though, was worried. When he awoke that morning in January 2018 and saw his street hidden under a thick white blanket, he pondered how hard it would be to get to a hospital. Two of his kids—Asher, eight, and Reese, four—ran in and out of the house in winter coats, cheeks pink, begging to go sledding. They weren’t the ones he was concerned about. Smith worried about his daughter Moira. In some ways, Moira is like a lot of six-year-olds: She loves bubble baths, giggling with friends, and vanilla frosting. She has tremendous blue eyes, a toothy smile, and cascading blond hair. But in other ways—ones you notice as soon as you meet her—Moira is different. She can’t sit up and has only … [Read more...] about Six-Year-Old Moira is One of the Sickest People in America. So Why is North Carolina Trying to Gut Her Health Care?

Updated 3:39 pm CDT, Friday, September 7, 2018 GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Police have filed charges against former University of North Carolina basketball player P.J. Hairston, the latest in legal problems dating back to his college career. The News & Record of Greensboro reports Guilford County Chief Assistant District Attorney Howard Neumann said Friday the 25-year-old Hairston is charged with assault on a female, interfering with emergency communication and injury to personal property.

Raleigh, N.C. (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department has asked a federal judge to halt North Carolina’s law requiring people to use restrooms corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates, citing the harassment of transgender people since the measure was enacted earlier this year. The request for a preliminary injunction, filed late July 5, provides the most extensive look yet at the Justice Department’s argument that the bathroom-access requirements violate federal law. The filing comes just after North Carolina lawmakers left the measure largely intact during their session that ended July 1, all but ensuring that the measure’s fate will be decided in federal court. Republican Gov. Pat McCrory had yet to sign their minor revision into law on June 6. Pressure to change the law has come from business leaders, entertainers and the NBA. The governor and legislative leaders say the law is needed to protect women and children from criminals who would pose as the … [Read more...] about Justice Department demands end of North Carolina’s bathroom discrimination
