Sunrise in the Sandhills Good morning -- it's Thursday April 19, 2018 -- and today is National Garlic Day. Well why not? It's always national something day. By the way, it's also National Bicycle Day. Now, here's your Sunrise News from WIOZ:

A four-hour speed enforcement operation in Pinehurst on Tuesday resulted in 68 charges including speeding violations, driving without a license or with a revoked license, careless and reckless, and several other charges. AberdeenTimes-dot-com reports Pinehurst Police and several other law enforcement agencies conducted the operation on 15-501, and Midland Road between 10 AM and 2 PM.

(AP) - The gates are opening wider for North Carolina voters to cast ballots for next month's primary elections as early one-stop voting begins. There will be at least one site open Thursday in each of the state's 100 counties. Nearly 300 sites will be operational during the early-voting period before it ends May 5. The primary election day is May 8.

(AP) — Fort Bragg has dedicated a school to a woman forced out of her job after she pushed to allow black students to attend classes, years before a national court case made school segregation illegal. The Mildred B. Poole Elementary School is the first school on the Army post that’s not named for a soldier. Mildred Poole was the first chief administrator and principal of the Fort Bragg school system in 1948.

(AP) - Two state agencies have reached an agreement on a proposed increase for homeowners' insurance. The North Carolina Department of Insurance and the Rate Bureau have settled on a 4.8 percent increase statewide. The Rate Bureau had sought an 18.7 percent rate increase.

(AP) - Recent graduates of a now-closed law school all failed the bar exam. Eleven graduates of the Charlotte School of law that took the bar exam for the first time in February all failed. It had the lowest passing rate of any of the seven law schools in North Carolina. The school lost its operating license last summer and closed.

Governor Roy Cooper has ordered all United States and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff until sunset on Friday in honor of the passing of former First Lady Barbara Bush. Cooper says "Barbara Bush was an inspiration for millions of Americans and families around the world.”

There's a new service that will allow patients to consult with a doctor at a considerably lower cost than a visit to urgent care. UNC Urgent Care 24/7 is not intended for life-threatening situations like a possible heart attack, but include allergies, coughs, fever, nausea and the like. The patient connects by phone or on-line and the doctor can diagnose, recommend treatment and write prescriptions. Cost depends on patients' insurance coverage. It can be accessed at UNCurgentcare247-dot-com.

Today: Sunny, with a temperature rising to near 68 by 11am, then falling to around 57 during the remainder of the day.

Tonight: Clear, with a low around 37.

Friday: Sunny, with a high near 64.

Sandhills411 A Message from Dr. Bob Grimesey, Superintendent of Moore County Schools. "I'd like to remind our parents, staff and students eligible to vote that tomorrow, Thursday, April 19, one-stop voting begins at the Agricultural Center, 707 Pinehurst Avenue in Carthage. If you are not already registered to vote, you can both register and vote on the same day during the one-stop voting period. One-stop voting ends on May 5. Please be aware there are two items on the ballot, a $103 million bond referendum to replace elementary schools in Southern Pines, Aberdeen and Pinehurst, and a $20 million bond referendum for a Nursing Education Center at Sandhills Community College. I encourage each and every one of you to vote in this election. Again, one-stop voting begins tomorrow and goes through May 5.
