Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom where there's been a surprising development in the Union County school redistricting controversy. It wasn't on the agenda, but the school board voted and passed the plan much to the anger of many parents who've been fighting it tooth-and-nail for months. You'll hear what people on both sides of the vote have to say on WBTV News at 11:00.
We've also located the maker of a video featuring some athletes from Bessemer City High School holding guns, drugs and uttering profanity laced gangster rap. He'll tell us why he made it and we'll also hear from the mother of two daughters who appear in the video.
They're freezing their wet beads off at Mardi Gras in New Orleans tonight. While the cold rain can't douse the last party before Lent, it will make its way to the Carolinas and Eric Thomas say we could get another dose of sleet or freezing rain later this week.
Plus, they are rescuing buried classic Corvettes in Kentucky at the National Corvette Museum after a 60-foot sinkhole gave way under the building. Eight Corvettes fell in. One of the first they pulled out today, fired up on the first turn of the key.
Please join Molly Grantham, Eric Thomas, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00 tonight!
