Stormy week not over

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom. It's been a stormy couple of nights, and it's far from over. Our summer weather pattern of heat, humidity and evening thunderstorms will be with us for several days. Eric Thomas says the only exception might be Saturday.

Teachers crowded the government center tonight, demanding County Commissioners find the money to give them a raise they say they deserve. Much of the commission is set on a plan to add one-quarter percent to the sales tax rate to pay for raises. There are some taxpayers who are strongly opposed.

We're also talking with Medal of Honor recipient, former Sergeant Kyle White, who now lives in Charlotte and works in finance. White single-handily saved members of his platoon from an ambush in Afghanistan. Several other of his buddies were killed and White tells us the toughest moment for him was seeing the families of his dead friends as he was presented the honor in the White House.

Not sure you've seen pictures of the Texas mansion which is falling off the edge of a cliff into a lake below, but there's bad news for the homeowners. They are now on the hook to clean up the wreckage from the lake as it's a source of drinking water for the area.

Please join Eric Thomas, Delano Little, Molly Grantham and me for WBTV News at 11:00 tonight!
