(Photo by Chung Sung-Jun/Getty Images) RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A Rocky Mount woman has pled guilty to one count of bank fraud and one county of aggravated identity theft. From around 2015 to 2017, Elizabeth Williamson helped her elderly in-laws with day-to-day tasks, managed their medication, and payed their bills. She also stole approximately $96,500 from their bank accounts. To assist in carrying out her scheme, Williamson submitted a Power of Attorney to BB&T for use on the their bank accounts, stole their checkbooks, wrote checks listing herself as payee, and forged their signatures on the checks. She also used their bank account information to pay her bills and shop online. In order to avoid detection, Williamson submitted a fraudulent change of address form to the United States Post Office redirecting all of her in-laws’ mail from their home to her home. On at least five occasions, Williamson stole checks issued and mailed to her in-laws and deposited then into her own State Employees’ Credit Union account. It was also determined that she stopped refilling her in-laws’ medication and replaced the medication with vitamins.

AUSTIN (KXAN) — On a hot summer day, the splash pad at Bailey Park is a hot spot with kids running and splashing around. Nearby, laughter echoes from backyard and neighborhood pools. Summer is just kicking off, but it’s already been deadly for kids in Central Texas.  Colin’s Hope says five kids in Travis and Williamson counties have died from drowning.  Across the state, the non-profit says 39 kids have died this year. Many more have survived. “I really do truly believe that if we all talk about this and we talk about it with the same level of urgency that we talk about other things like seat belts, bike helmets and things like that then we can really change this,” said Alissa Magrum, Executive Director of Colin’s Hope “I mean these are preventable, so let’s prevent them.” The non-profit was named after Colin Holst. He drowned in a life guarded pool 11 years ago. Magrum says in the last few weeks she’s been hearing a lot from families after close calls. One of those families has been the Archibald Smith’s. They were at a get together when their toddler got into trouble in the pool. He had gotten out and was with his dad when he walked away. “I noticed my two-year-old at the time jumping in the pool without his puddle jumper on and went straight to the bottom of the pool,” says mom Jill Archibald Smith “So I ran over and jumped in with all my clothes, picked him up and was able to be there in a split second.” The Archibald Smith’s say they started swim lessons early with their kids and are now pushing those lessons even harder. “From that day forward we spoke about why it’s so important mommy and daddy need to be in the pool with you and why you never jump into the pool,” explained Archibald Smith. Colin’s Hope says always assign an undistracted adult to watch your kids if you have to step away. Enroll the kids in swim lessons. Kids who can’t swim should always wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket. The group also says families need to make sure they have multiple barriers around water.  “Don’t be afraid to ask questions if your kids are going to someone’s house ask what their water safety rules are. They may be different than your own and teach your kids to speak up for themselves,” said Magrum “We teach kids to ask an adult to be your water guardian and power kids to think about the safety.” Colin’s Hope will be taking swim lessons to Typhoon Texas in Pflugerville on Thursday, June 20. It’s for the world’s largest swim lesson event and starts at 8 a.m.

So, after eight years in decline and two months of sending in the clowns, the Lakers are once more the Lakers, the NBA’s glamour franchise, the stars’ destination of choice. It hadn’t seemed like that for years and never less than since Magic Johnson fled April 9, goring GM Rob Pelinka on the way out for back-stabbing him. MORE COVERAGE: Lakers agree to acquire Anthony Davis in blockbuster trade Whicker: With Kuzma staying and Davis coming, it’s no longer LeBron or bust for Lakers Alexander: Two days in, the Lakers have won the offseason … for what that’s worth Reaction to Lakers trade for Anthony Davis – LaVar Ball predicts no championships Diplomatically, Johnson didn’t actually name Pelinka … until May 20, when Magic felt forced to defend himself anew and went on TV to accuse of Rob of “betrayal”… coincidentally eclipsing the Lakers’ press conference for Coach Frank Vogel, the first time they took questions on their meltdown in what was supposed to signal they were getting on with their lives. It only seems ironic that it was Pelinka, whom Johnson left bleeding for the press to dine on, like chum for sharks, who executed Magic’s plan, which started with trading for Anthony Davis, leaving enough cap space for a premium free agent. Actually, it was everyone’s plan. Local teenagers could have seen this opportunity and made this call. I wrote about Davis a year ago after LeBron James arrived but Paul George didn’t, leaving the Lakers with one maximum salary slot for this summer, although I mistakenly listed AD as a 2019 free agent when he was under contract through 2020. That distinction turned into a nicety that didn’t matter last fall when Davis, who hadn’t said a discouraging word about the Pelicans’ struggles while making the playoffs twice in seven seasons, told them privately he would refuse to sign in 2020 if hey couldn’t fulfill his destiny there. Of course, the ultimatum got out in nano-seconds. Worse for the Pels, AD didn’t merely want them to be a good team. They were already at that level, having won 48 games in the 2017-18 season. Said Davis in what looked like a warmup for his farewell address: “Going to the playoffs every three years doesn’t help my case.” If everyone thought the Lakers were behind this, that was giving them too much credit. They were actually just along for the ride. It was James driving this on the Lakers’ behalf, and his … and, of course, AD’s. Davis had just fired his agent, the well-regarded Thad Doucher, replacing him with Rich Paul, LeBron’s agent and once one of the Bron troup of young insiders known as the “Four Horsemen.” In January, with the Lakers trying to come up with trade packages to satisfy the furious Pelicans, Paul went public with AD’s request to be traded… a no-no. The NBA fined Paul $50,000, which was like a tip in LeBron World. Johnson then reportedly offered everybody, including Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball, but Pelicans GM Dell Demps showed no interest. Not that Demps was just speaking for himself. The Pelicans’ fury at seeing their star wooed away came from owner Gayle Benson, who was reported to have said AD would go to the Lakers “over my dead body.” Benson, the owner of the NFL Saints who had shown scant interest in her NBA team, settled for firing Demps and hiring former Cleveland GM David Griffin, who hoped to heal the breach with AD and, if not, to find a better package than the Lakers could offer. But Davis was already gone, in his own head, at least. Not even seeing the Pelicans land the exciting Zion Williamson in the draft could turn him around. The Pelicans’ preferred trade partner was Boston. The Celtics had by far the most to offer with three No. 1 picks and young prospects that could include Jayson Tatum, with GM Danny Ainge hoping that acquiring AD would keep free agent Kyrie Irving from leaving. But neither the Celtics and Pelicans was in charge, either. Paul, or actually, James, was. Paul informed the Pelicans that Davis would only re-sign with two teams, the Lakers and Knicks. If Ainge hadn’t gotten message, Paul warned him away as subtly as if he carved it out of stone tablets. “They [Celtics] can trade for him but it’ll be for one year,” Paul told Sports Illustrated’s Scott Price. “I mean, if the Celtics traded for Anthony Davis, we would go there and we would abide by our contractual [obligations] and we would go into free agency in 2020. I’ve stated that to them. “But in the event that he decides to walk away and you give away assets? Don’t blame Rich Paul.” With the Knicks having little to trade aside from their No. 3 pick, that left only the Lakers for New Orleans to deal with. The Lakers noticed. The package they reportedly offered includes Ingram, Ball and Josh Hart, less than they offered at the trade deadline when Johnson reportedly made Kuzma available. Suggesting that no one else was pounding on their door, the Pelicans didn’t bother to run out the clock before draft day, agreeing to the deal over the weekend before. Assuming this goes down as reported, the credit goes to Pelinka, who needed it after being villified in the press and surrounded by the committee of Jeanie Buss, friends and her family that turning their coaching search into a slapstick comedy in which their top two candidates as humble as Ty Lue and Monty Williams  both withdrew. The Lakers’ way is now clear with the ability to bring in a third star, be it a second-tier free agent like Kemba Walker or Jimmy Butler, or an elite one like Kyrie. Davis just turned 26, making him an invaluable bridge to the future they needed with James going into his age 35 season. Not that we can be sure they’re headed for greatness, as in the days of Jerry Buss and Jerry West. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”] However thin-skinned Johnson showed himself to be, his warning about all the people seeking to be involved rings true in a front office in which Pelinka, struggling to gain footing, is merely one actor along with Jeanie, Jesse and Joey Buss, Linda Rambis, Kurt Rambis and Tim Harris. Then there’s their new assistant coach/master of intrigue Jason Kidd, who will either be on Vogel’s staff, looking over his shoulder, or both. In any case, the great expectations will be back, making this a welcome day for Laker fans. It was a long time coming, but not as long as it looked like it was going to be.
