Jon Broyhill and Nation Hahn’s
unusual bond, stunning break

News & Observer [Raleigh, NC], by Josh Shaffer

Original Article

Posted By:muncssister, 4/28/2013 1:14:23 PM

Raleigh - Their friendship began in the Pentecostal church, teenage chums in a fading furniture town. They spent every day together in rural Lenoir, their lives revolving around youth group, prayer meetings and sleepovers. They passed afternoons at the local coffee and waffle shop, joking with a handful of church friends. They clicked. But it wasn’t always an obvious friendship. Nation Hahn had a zeal for liberal politics even as a teen, a rarity in the foothills of Caldwell County. He took Advanced Placement classes at Hibriten High. He graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. He moved quickly into

Comments:
This very bizarre local story has seen some national attention... In a nutshell, the young couple´s best man murdered the wife in their home. They are all democratic party operatives and it appears an FEC investigation into some missing congressional campaign money may have set the whole thing off.

The victim worked first as deputy campaign finance officer for Edwards, then Kay Hagan.

What´s not clear is why the bond between these two men, who appear to be such an odd couple.

Article doesn´t mention that Broyhill´s middle name is "Wayne". Personally I would run away as fast as possible from any contact with an individual named "Jon Wayne Anything".

I expect a lot more to come out on this story, but don´t expect Hahn to become a national advocate for Knife Control.

Just another story that demonstrates the wickedness that lives deep in all human hearts, a wickedness that the Democrats try to deny even exists.

ASHEVILLE- A 9-year-old boy is getting international attention from his battle with a Buncombe County school over his right to carry a “My Little Pony” lunch bag to class. Grayson Bruce, a student at Candler Elementary School, is now being home schooled because his mother, Noreen, said her son was bullied at school for carrying the lunch bag. She said school officials would not support her son. Noreen Bruce said she is scheduled to meet Thursday with Buncombe County Schools Superintendent Tony Baldwin to discuss the issue. In the meantime, Grayson and his lunch bag have become a sensation around

   

 

  


 
Gridlock continues as unspeakably horrible
commute home stretches into hour 18

The winter storm has mostly moved into the Carolinas, but metro Atlanta traffic remains gridlocked at 6 a.m. Wednesday as Tuesday’s afternoon rush hour from hell stretched into hour 18. Traffic is still bumper-to-bumper and barely moving on several Atlanta interstates, including on I-75 north of downtown, on I-20 west of downtown and on the top-end Perimeter. Students remain stranded at schools, as commuters lucky enough to make their way to makeshift shelters begin waking up in churches, fire houses and stores that remained open all night to provide a warm place to stay as temperatures plummeted into the teens.

Roman Tritz’s memories of the past six decades are blurred by age and delusion. But one thing he remembers clearly is the fight he put up the day the orderlies came for him. “They got the notion they were going to come to give me a lobotomy,” says Mr. Tritz, a World War II bomber pilot. “To hell with them.” The orderlies at the veterans hospital pinned Mr. Tritz to the floor, he recalls. He fought so hard that eventually they gave up. But the orderlies came for him again on Wednesday, July 1, 1953, a few weeks before his

Mecklenburg County commissioner Kim Ratliff apologized Tuesday night to the public and her colleagues for saying she preferred that the next county manager not be a white man. Ratliff, the board’s vice chair who is a Democrat and black, said in a brief statement at the board’s regular meeting that she regrets making the statement. “My comments were meant to encourage all candidates to apply for the position and not meant to exclude anyone,” she said. “I realize now my comments may not have been appropriate, and I regret making them.”

RALEIGH The Senate, after a long debate that invoked faith, constitutional rights and health statistics, approved a bill that would restrict abortions by stepping up requirements for clinics and doctors. The Senate passed the bill by a vote of 29-12 as opponents filled the gallery above and hundreds more waited outside. The bill now goes to the House. After the vote, people in the hall began chanting, “Shame, shame, shame.” A woman in the gallery who yelled “Shame on you” was arrested. Lt. Gov. Dan Forest ordered the gallery cleared moments before the Senate adjourned.

You don’t go to school to become a professional sports mascot. So there was no one around to teach Michael Zerrillo that every mascot has an expiration date. He figured that out on his own in the spring of 1995 when an accident on an air-pressure catapult tore his Achilles tendon and several ankle ligaments. If you lived in Charlotte in the ’90s, you undoubtedly saw Zerrillo perform without ever knowing his name or seeing his face. A former Arizona State gymnast, Zerrillo was the second Hugo, beloved mascot of the Charlotte Hornets.

Proposed menu includes steak biscuits, pizza bagels, pancake and sausage on stick. A plan to offer free breakfast to all Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students goes before the school board Tuesday, with the premise that students who eat breakfast are more successful and better behaved than those who skip it. The federal subsidy program for low-income students will cover the cost of biscuits, pancakes and other quick breakfast items for all, according to the presentation on the agenda. The goal is to eliminate the stigma of school breakfast

The pope and the devil:
Is Francis an exorcist?

VATICAN CITY Is Pope Francis an exorcist? The question has been swirling ever since Francis laid his hands Sunday on the head of a young man after celebrating Mass in St. Peter´s Square. The young man heaved deeply a half-dozen times, convulsed and shook, and then slumped in his wheelchair as Francis prayed over him. The television station of the Italian bishops´ conference said it had surveyed exorcists, who agreed that Francis either performed an exorcism or a prayer to free the man from the devil. The Vatican was more cautious Tuesday, saying Francis

The NC Toxic Free Kids Act (House Bill 848) was designed to ensure that children´s products are safe by asking manufacturers to disclose the presence of toxic chemicals and requiring that they phase out the use of three Priority Chemicals in children´s products. This bi-partisan bill was created by NC Reps Chuck McGrady (R-Henderson) and Pricey Harrison (D-Guilford) to address the fact that here is no comprehensive system in place to assure that highly hazardous chemicals are not being used in children’s products The chemicals targeted for phase-out under the bill are Bisphenol A (BPA)

AUBURN, Ala. -- There was a funeral at the intersection of Magnolia Avenue and College Street this weekend, and thousands of people traveled great distances to be here, determined to say a final goodbye to a pair of old friends. Many took pictures, hoping to freeze the moment in time, while others paused to say a few words before offering a final gesture of love. Few tears, however, were shed, despite the finality of the day, and the undercurrent of sadness touched all who attended. Everywhere you looked, people were hugging and smiling, soaking up the sunshine on an

RALEIGH With Republican Gov. Pat McCrory and other conservatives controlling state government, what’s a North Carolina liberal to do? According to one group, they should: • “Crippl(e) their leaders (McCrory, Tillis, Berger etc.)” • “Eviscerate the leadership and weaken their ability to govern.” • “Pressure McCrory at every public event.”• “Slam him when he contradicts his promises.” Those were among the talking points and action steps in a memo from a group called Blueprint North Carolina, a partnership of advocacy and policy groups based in Raleigh. The memo was emailed to groups last week with a warning:

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
