RALEIGH, NC (CAROLINA JOURNAL) -- A Monday event in Whiteville honoring former state Sen. R.C. Soles, D-Columbus, has been canceled, Carolina Journal has learned. According to a man associated with the event who did not want to be identified, Soles decided Thursday to cancel the event awarding the Order of the Long Leaf Pine after Soles learned that CJ had been unable to find any record showing that former Gov. Bev Perdue approved the award. The Order of the Long Leaf Pine is the most prestigious award that can be conferred by the governor of North Carolina.

Soles, a Tabor City attorney, was North Carolina’s longest-tenured legislator, serving in the General Assembly from 1969-2011. He continued to be re-elected even though he has been involved in a number of controversies.
