Local donut chain being investigated after a dozen people get sick

Good morning! It's Christine Nelson writing you this email from the WBTV newsroom. John Carter and I met with producers first thing this morning. So I am able to give you this first look at the stories making headlines as you wake up this morning. Tune in to WBTV News This Morning for full details.

LIVE: A local Dunkin' Donuts store is the center of a health investigation this morning. Some of its employees got sick with a stomach bug and it spread to those employees' relatives! WBTV's Kristen Hampton is live at the store in Union County with details of what we learned could be the source of the problem.

This story a lot of you are talking about on our WBTV Facebook page (www.wbtv.com/facebook). Tonight there will be a Sweet 16 birthday party for missing Salisbury teen Erica Parsons. You remember, she hasn't been seen in more than two years. Organizers are making this an event others in the community will benefit from. We'll tell you how you can take part.

We have a winner! If you haven't heard already Dale Bernhard, Jr. won the Daytona 500. The green flag was finally waived after the race was delayed for hours. What people are talking about this morning is the confusion that was caused after the network decided to air last year's race during the rain delay. It will make you chuckle.

Other headlines:

-CIAA begins this week!

-Sochi games over. Where U.S. fell in Olympic medal count

 

See you on air!
