We are LIVE...with details on a deadly head-on wreck in Caldwell County.  Two adults and a child were killed.  Troopers say excessive speed was a factor in the wreck.

State lawmakers are debating a bill that would take a Mecklenburg County sales tax referendum off the ballot this November.  That sales tax, if approved, would be used for local teach pay increases.  Find out why some lawmakers say it shouldn't be on the ballot.

Did you enjoy yesterday's cooler temperatures and less humidity?  Al Conklin tells us to expect more of the same today in his First Alert Weather forecast!
