The Obama administration’s recent decisions about trying terror suspects in civilian courtrooms prompted a response from John Locke Foundation senior fellow Marc Rotterman, whose column on the topic appeared this week in the News & Observer. Meanwhile, the Mooresville Tribune picked up a recent column from N.C. Education Alliance Fellow Kristen Blair that focused on school violence trends. The Duplin Times published Carolina Journal Radio Co-Host Donna Martinez‘s column on a Chapel Hill businessman who’s likely to lose his business because of the state’s pending smoking ban for bars and restaurants. In other opinion-page news, the Cape Fear Business News and Beaufort Observer are among the media outlets that have picked up the latest property-rights column from JLF Legal and Regulatory Policy Analyst Daren Bakst. A separate article in the Beaufort Observer also directs readers to Bakst’s column.
