Good morning to you on this Thursday, May 10, 2012, from the WBTV News morning team...John Carter reporting to you this morning!

Some interesting stories to tell you about this morning...and plenty going on this morning at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The family of Jasmine Tharp is holding a news conference later today...from Columbus County, where the Charlotte teenager was shot to death.  We're working to get details on what's going to be said.

The proposed psychiatric hospital for Huntersville is being moved...we'll have a live report with all new details about what's happening.

A former coach for a local high school basketball team is charged with five counts of felony sex offense.

A proposed Charlotte City budget includes a possible tax increase.

Plus...Kristen Hampton will be live from Charlotte Motor Speedway, where there's plenty of activity this morning...even though the big races aren't going to be here for another week!  It's a story all new for the morning show...be sure to tune in.

Plus...a big change in our weather from what we had yesterday...take a look outside, where it's clear and a beautiful moon is shining.

All that and so much more when you join us this morning from 4:30 to 7 AM.
