Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.
GOP primary day tomorrow in South Carolina and the predicted turnout is looking very heavy—upwards of half million voters are expected to cast ballots. A record 38-thousand absentee ballots have already been counted.
This is reprehensible—thieves are breaking into personal cars and stealing from firefighters when they’re out on a call. It’s happened four times in the past month. CFD says the crooks are listening to scanners and strike when the station is out responding to emergencies. It’s not just in Charlotte. Fire stations in Kannapolis, China Grove and Mount Mourne have all had similar break-ins.
Can you imagine LEGO’s spread out over 3 acres? This weekend the sold-out LEGO KidsFest National Tour hits the Charlotte Convention Center. Organizers are expecting 28-thousand people to attend.
It should be a great weather weekend with temperatures pushing 70 degrees. Enjoy.
Please join Eric, Molly Grantham, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00!
