  1. […] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Charlotte Talks, Charlotte Talks. Charlotte Talks said: Thursday: 2010 Local News Wrap-Up. Reporters look back on some of the biggest news stories from the economy to… http://fb.me/QzsQHgp2 […]

  2. The only coverage I noticed on Chief Monroe’s disclosure lapse of Marcus Jackson’s record was on WFAE. The Charlotte Observer gave him a break, for whatever reasons.

  3. Whenever I walk or drive down the street and see a Latin looking person, my first thought is not “he/she is illegal.” My first thought is “what a hard worker trying to make their place in this wonderful country. ” Also, I agree that the phrase “illegal alien” is incorrect. Although I believe strongly that the ones who are not documented are indeed illegal, I think they should be called “undocumented refugee.” I would not call them “immigrant” since they are not immigrants who have gone through the immigration process.

  4. I understand that there is is a penalty for canceling the contract, but what is the long-term cost of continuing forward with the contract?

  5. Christianity is under attack. We are commanded to proclaim the gospel that we believe in and Christians are being silenced essentially. There are progressive micro aggression movements happening on college campuses all across the United States of AmericaThere are programs in public schools that impose secular sexual and intimate knowledge on State Avenue. public servants are also of the faith are being forced to perform same-sex marriage is an even now there are programs pushed to call pastors to perform these ceremonies in their churches. Food services being told they have to provide materials and the favors to the festivities surrounding these ceremonies
