RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - North Carolina flags will sit at half-staff Thursday in honor of Col. Richard W. Holden, Sr. of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol. Col. Holden was a 35-year veteran of the Highway Patrol before his retirement. He was also its first African-American commander. 

He died on August 22 at the age of 67.
“Col. Holden led the North Carolina State Highway Patrol with a great amount of dedication and excellence,” said Gov. McCrory in a statement. “We will all remember and cherish his legacy. He set a fine example for future commanders with his leadership. Ann and I will be praying for his family and friends during this difficult time.”
Col. Holden joined the Highway Patrol as one of the original six African-American cadets to enter the Highway Patrol’s Basic School.  In 1999, he took the helm of the high-profile law enforcement agency and served with distinction in that position for five years. 
Col. Holden is survived by his wife, daughter, son and eight siblings.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - One or more findings have been detailed in audit of the state's occupational and licensing boards and commissions. The results include inadequate oversight by state entities of the boards and commissions.

The results were released by State Auditor Beth Wood's office.
The Report Summary:
This audit analyzes operational and financial information for occupational licensing boards and commissions (Boards) for the purpose of identifying areas that may warrant further attention or examination from legislatures, auditors, state-level entities, and Boards. 
While not the original objective, this audit also analyzes state-level oversight of Boards for the purpose of reporting on the level of oversight activity. 
The results of our audit disclosed items that are considered reportable under Government Auditing Standards. Specifically this report found that Boards operate with ineffective oversight from state-level entities, multiple instances of noncompliance with N.C. General Statutes, and other items identified for further review. 
Boards and State-level entities generally agreed with our findings and recommendations. Details about each item are provided in the Audit Findings, Recommendations, and Responses section of the report.
The entire report can be accessed at http://www.ncauditor.net/EpsWeb/Reports/FiscalControl/FCA-2014-7092.pdf
