Abstract:
In the November 2006 election, many voters will elect members to the non-partisan post of Soil & Water Conservation District Supervisor, a position many of them have never thought about. Every district has three elected members, two appointed members, and $4,000 in annual funding. The state has ninety-eight districts, including the nation's first--Brown Creek in Anson County. The district was home to Hugh Hammond Bennett, the \"Father of Soil Conservation.\" During the period of the Dust Bowl in the 1930s, he was the chief evangelist and architect of the soil and water conservation system. Ross discusses how the system has evolved during its seventy-year history.

Abstract:
Environmental pollution and hazardous waste remain a problem at the local, state, and national levels. Much pollution is legal because of state and federal permits granted to businesses. Still, there are businesses that violate the law. The INDEPENDENT examines eight Wake County pollution sources. The facilities profiled were selected using three main criteria: the number or egregiousness of the violations; proximity to population centers; and fines assessed since 2003.
