Matt Drew, pastor at Elevation Church’s Lake Norman campus at Kenton Place, turned over the keys to a 15-passenger Ford Transit to Mayor Chuck Travis Monday. The church raised the funds to purchase the van as part of what Drew called a “mission to engage with the community.” Read the full story

Lake Norman residents woke up to a thin blanket of white Tuesday as less than an inch of snow fell overnight and into Tuesday morning. Some private and charter schools in the Lake Norman area were closed Tuesday because of snow on the roads.
Pine Lake Prep and Woodlawn School both called off classes for the day.
Meanwhile, Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools had classes as normal. But at around 1:30, the school district decided to cancel all after-school activities, including sports and extended day program. Any community programs scheduled in schools also are canceled, though the After-School Enrichment Program (ASEP) remains on schedule. CMS said it made the move because temperatures are expected to drop below freezing in some areas of the county Tuesday evening.
More snow is forecast Wednesday night into Thursday. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning from 4pm Wednesday through 7am Thursday, calling for accumulations of 3-6 inches in a wide area of western North Carolina. The snow and cold temperatures could make roads hazardous, the weather service said.

As most of us slept early Saturday, workers on the Catawba Avenue bridge over I-77 erected a pair of 38-foot aluminum masts and attached cables, a nautical-themed decoration for the the newly rebuilt Exit 28 interchange.
The work is the final major step in the $5.4 million project, which has included converting the highway exit into a crossover pattern called a “diverging diamond interchange.” The North Carolina Department of Transportation is paying for most of the rebuilding, while the Town of Cornelius is picking up the roughly $2 million cost of the mast and cable structure and other aesthetic improvements still to come.
(Update: Town officials say the first phase of the improvements cost about $689,000, including about $170,000 for the masts and cables and $160,000 for concrete walls and lighting. Still to come are decorative bridge abutments and landscaping, which will make up the bulk of the aesthetic improvements’ cost, at $1.4 million.)
