Unemployment Declines
RALEIGH-“The unemployment rate for April
declined in 88 of North Carolina’s 100 counties. The
jobless rate rose in 11 counties and remained the
same in one,” said Glen R. Jernigan, Chairman of the
Employment Security Commission (ESC).
The figures released today parallel the significant
decrease in the statewide unemployment rate which
was 8.2 percent in April, down from 9.7 percent in
March. 'The national unadjusted rate for April was
9.2 percent slightly lower than 9.5 percent in March.
Jernigan said, “Current figures probably result
from the fact that a number of workers who were
temporarily unemployed have now returned to jobs
even though shorter work weeks prevail.” In April,
production workers averaged 37.0 hours per week,
down from 37.4 in March and well below 39.0 in
April 1981.
Thirty-six counties registered double-digit
unemployment. Swain County was highest with a
rate of 26.1 percent, an increase over 25.4 percent in
March. For the third consecutive month, Swain has
had the state’s highest unemployment rate.
Foods Can Inhibit Iron

For many people,
getting enough iron in the
diet can be very difficult.
And, says Dr. Mary Ann
Spruill, extension nutri
tion specialist at North
Carolina State Univer
sity, it is necessary to see
how well the iron
requirement is met by a
person’s food intake.
Dr. Spruill explains
that iron from meat, fish
and poultry, is absorbed
by humans. It is unaffect
ed by other foods in the

Community Trustees in
regular sessioh May 24
reviewed operations the
past 60 days, approved
line item budget adjust
ments and proposed a
budget for 1982-83
totaling $5,866,661.00.
The board also approved
some policy changes and
heard administrative
reports from department
Chairman A. F. Waller
presided. Eugene Will
iams offered the invoca
tion. Dr. J. Winton
Odham, vice-president
for administration
services, reviewed the
financial operations and
outlined line item budget
adjustments and the new
budget proposal for the
board. It was noted the
college this year was
funded at 97 percent of
the state budget alloca
tion and that with shifts
in line items the year
could be completed in the
black ink with little to
spare. The fiscal report
and new budget were
approved. The proposed
outlay of $5,866,661 must
yet be funded by state and
local authorities but the
fiscal chart is needed to
plan for the new year.
But another classifica
tion of iron found in fruits
and vegetables, as well as
meat, lish anu poultry, is
absorbed only about 5
In the latter case, other
substances may act as
inhibitors, which hinder
absorption of iron, or
enhancers, which help it.
Dr. Spruill says
inhibitors include tea,
egg, antacids, and milk,
while meat and ascorbic
acid are enhancers.
Orange County, for the sixth consecutive month
has had the lowest unemployment rate of 3.3 percent.
Wake County dropped to 4.0 percent in April from
4.7 percent in March.
The largest increase in unemployment occurred in
Davie County which registered an increase of.5.0
percentage points. The largest decrease in
unemployment was registered in Dare County, down
9.6 percentage points.
Unemployment decreased in all ten of the state’s
standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSAs).
The Raleigh-Durham area decreased from 4.7
percent to 4.1 percent, Asheville from 9.2 percent to
8.1 percent, Burlington from 10.7 percent to 8.8
percent, Charlotte-Gastonia from 6.6 percent to 6.3
percent, Fayetteville from 8.6 percent to 7.8 percent,
Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point from 8.7
percent to 6.9 percent. Hickory from 9.6 percent to
7.9 percent, Jacksonville from 7.3 percent to 6.6
percent, Salisbury-Concord from 7.7 percent to 6.0
