The General Assembly is about to tackle the constitutionally touchy issue that in other states has raised questions about religion in schools  and drawn court scrutiny.  The state House is expected to vote soon on a bill to require one minute of silence at the beginning of each school day. The requirement would begin next school year.

Districts offering courses on Bible  By Bo Petersen  Gazette Staff Reporter  Students in some history classes in Lincoln and Gaston soon will have a textbook already in use in Kings Moutain: The Bible.  Under pressure from some parents and students, local schools officials want to teach the Bible as a history course.  Joining 50 or more school systems  across North Carolina:  • The Lincoln County school board on Monday approved offering a course for all three of its high schools, condensing three Gaston College courses — world religions, and Old and New Testament surveys with an emphasis on the Bible.  • Gaston school officials are planning to offer a similar high school  Please see BIBLE/2A  Official seeks  investigation of HUD chief  Attorney general charges Cisneros lied to FBI agents  WASHINGTON (AP) - Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros misled the FBI about payments to his former mistress, Attorney General Janet Reno concluded in seeking appointment of an independent counsel. Cisneros said he committed no crime and vowed to stay on.  "Information provided by Secretary Cisneros concerning his payments to (Linda) Medlar was false," Ms. Reno told a special court in documents released Tuesday. She asked that the independent counsel also investigate whether Cisneros and Medlar conspired to conceal information about the payments during his confirmation to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  The three appellate judges on the special court now must select a counsel to decide whether Cisneros' actions constitute a criminal viola-  Please see HUD/3 A  "I am disappointed by the decision, but I ... am confident the independent counsel will conclude that I did not engage in criminal wrongdoing. I intend to stay and fight."  Henry Cisneros  Housing Secretary  Labor board's move could create Major League lockout  WASHINGTON (AP) - Baseball owners were hit with an unfair labor practice complaint Tuesday that could lead to both an end of the seven-month strike and the start of a management lockout.  The National Labor Relations Board accused owners of illegally eliminating salary arbitration and the anticollusion provisions of the expired collective bargaining agreement with the players union.  Fred Feinstein, the agency's general counsel, said within two weeks he will decide whether to ask the age  ncy's five-member board for permission to seek a preliminary injunction in federal court to restore those rules. If a judge issues an injunction, players say they would end the strike, the longest work stoppage in the history of U.S. professional sports.  "Obviously, we're pleased with the result," union head Donald Fehr said. "Obviously, it's the right thing to do. Obviously, we'd like to be back at the table and bargain this out."
