What You Need to Know About North Carolina for May 18, 2015

Greetings from Kansas City. Many of you have asked me about the status of this newsletter now that I’ll be living and working in Kansas City. To be honest, the answer is we’ll see. Although I’m here for a week, I’ve still got several weeks back in North Carolina that are ripe for newsgathering and also finding a format that fits where I am now. Plus, I want to keep up with what’s happening in my home state. It’s still a great place and I’ll miss it.

One thing that won’t change, my love for the rocking chairs and variety of restaurants at Charlotte-Douglas International along with its cheaper for now long-term parking lot and direct flight out here to Kansas City.

That’s just one thing you need to know about North Carolina. Here are a few things that caught my eye over the weekend for this quite warm (for you) Monday morning:

The Greensboro Massacre historical marker will be in place and dedicated in the next few weeks.

Greensboro’s new mobile food markets are adding more perks.

These Asheville high-schoolers brought their prom back to their campus for the first time in approximately 30 years.

The City of Charlotte has accepted the terms of the new I-77 toll lanes, while other surrounding communities are still debating their merits.

Efforts are beginning to bring a film museum to Wilmington.

How Wilmington is addressing its food desert issue.

And finally how one Eastern NC church body is changing from the inside out thanks to better eating habits and a community garden and a Raleigh church building is changing focus.
