What a Greenville business executive could contribute more to the UNC system’s Board of Governors and the UNC System’s 17 universities is his value of efficiency. How he has displayed efficiency is through supporting the consolidation of state controlled ECU Physicians Group and Vidant Medical Group. How he can display efficiency is through the passage of two initiatives. One is moving consolidating the UNC system’s offices into one building. Another is the UNC system handling the financial parts of all system campuses instead of each campus operating independently. It is through such initiatives that Harry Smith’s hope of better controlling UNC system tuition and fees may be realized.
Old Faithful refers not to the famous Yosemite Park geyser, but to nuclear power. This energy source provides a substantial source of power, with nearly a third of the state’s electricity generation. Currently challenges to its predominance include a diversity of energy sources, including alternative fuel sources like biofuels and traditional fuel sources such as natural gas. What may make nuclear energy worth continuing an investment in is cost. North Carolina energy costs, ranked as among the least expensive in the United States, can attribute this to factors such as nuclear power being a low cost energy source.
