Shelby Gains a New Historical Marker

At their meeting in January, the NC Civil Rights Trail Advisory Committee approved a historic marker for the City of Shelby. The marker will bear the following inscription:
 
SHELBY SIT-INS
African Americans, led by
local high school students,
held sit-ins and picketed
businesses in Feb. 1960
to demand desegregation.
           
Plans call for erecting the marker at 104 E. Warren Street in Shelby. The new marker will be delivered this spring. Planning for dedication of the marker will be left up to local parties.
 
The North Carolina Civil Rights Trail is the newest initiative of the NC African American Heritage Commission. The Commission is grateful to execute this initiative in partnership with Visit NC, and with support from the William G. Pomeroy Foundation.
 
You may be richer than you think!
 
Unclaimed property funds are escheated (turned over) to the NC Treasurer for safekeeping. These funds consist of bank accounts, wages, utility deposits, insurance policy proceeds, stocks, bonds, and contents of safe deposit boxes that typically have been abandoned for one to five years. Funds become unclaimed because the company loses track of the consumer, due to an incorrect address or other missing information.
 
Your name may be on the list, so check it out here. It’s free! 
 
 
As we enter the spring season, it is my hope that it will be a time of re-growth for our great state of North Carolina. The pace of session has kicked into full gear and I've been working on legislation intended to help the people of District 44, and North Carolina in general. People are desperate to get back to work and get on with their lives without the heavy-hand of government weighing on their heads. I believe people care about their fellow human beings and want to do the right thing toward them. It is more than time that they are allowed to do this without fear.
 
I wish all the best for you and your families as we celebrate the season of Easter.
 
May God bless you.
