CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - WBTV is on your side tonight, with a new segment. We've heard from many of you over the past few months. You're stressed out over all the bad news out there. Many times, your emails and phone calls ask us where all the good news is.

We want you to know that we hear you.

We can't stop covering the news of the day, but we can bring you more stories that will encourage you... and leave you smiling.

Today, our first story focuses on Carolina Panthers players taking a break from the gridiron.
