Friday, October 26, 2018
Rae Carruth becomes a free man, more about his release last Monday. Local regulations will have to wait for Charlotte's electric scooters. The $1.6 billion Powerball ticket was bought in South Carolina. Will we ever know who won? And President Trump returns to town on Friday to campaign for Mark Harris in North Carolina’s 9th. Mike Collins and our roundtable of reporters details those and other stories.
On this edition of the Charlotte Talks local news roundup…
Electric scooters are back in the news as city council decides against local regulation of the scooters to increase safety, and instead are waiting to see what the state legislature does about the issue.
And the Mega Millions finally had a winning ticket for the $1.6 billion prize, and it was sold in South Carolina.
Join host Mike Collins for those stories, an update on the suburban charter school conversation for area suburbs and much more with our roundtable of reporters on the Charlotte Talks Local News Roundup.
