— A Fayetteville woman who runs a home for homeless female veterans has until Friday to apply for a license for the charity.

The North Carolina Secretary of State's Office sent a letter last week to Barbara Marshall saying it could not find a license for the nonprofit, which operates the Jubilee House.

Marshall, a Navy veteran, must provide the state with financial documents for the charity along with an application for a license, which is required to seek donations exceeding $25,000.

Spokeswoman Liz Proctor said Marshall could face fines and other penalties if she doesn't meet the deadline.

Marshall told reporters last week that she plans to establish a formal board of directors and publicly account for donations and expenses.

The transitional 7,200-square-foot shelter was refurbished as part of the TV show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" last year.

About 4,000 volunteers, including first lady Michelle Obama, donated time to repair the 5,000-square-foot home.

    I THINK SHE JUST CONNED THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND THE STATE, AND THE SHOW SO SHE COULD GET A NEW PLACE.

    Did she have permits when the TV show and the prez wife built the house. I stoped watching the show a long time ago when I realized that many of the homes they built had to be sold for property tax and ins
