I am a 17-year-old Junior at Hough High School. I also helped to found the charity E2D Inc! Saturday is a huge day for E2D. I need to tell you all about it. 3rd Annual E2D Lemonade Stand Day – “Squeezing the Digital Divide!” Saturday, May 16th, 9am-12pm – All over Davidson, Cornelius and Huntersville.
What is the appropriate price for a cup of lemonade? Not just any lemonade, but the kind that’s made of water and powder that little kids sell on the street corner in small plastic cups? Before you answer, what if I promised you this cup of lemonade would be equally the most satisfying and gratifying lemonade you’ve ever had?
The proceeds from these lemonade stands won’t end up in the bottom of piggy bank or spent on candy and gum. No! This lemonade will positively transform the lives of some young students forever. (Now this may be the first time you’ve heard of a lemonade stand doing that!)
[Among other spots, volunteers will have a stand set up at the ‘Tawba Walk in downtown Cornelius Saturday afternoon. Details on that event in our Events Calendar. See more about the 2014 Lemonade Stand day on CorneliusNews.net.] Read the full story

Daniel Gittleman and holocaust survivor Frieda Roos-Van Hessen.
By JONATHAN COX
The words “published author” have a nice ring to them, but Community School of Davidson junior Daniel Gittleman has learned just how difficult it can be to earn them. He wrote his children’s book “From Singer to Survivor,” an illustrated account of the life of Holocaust survivor Frieda Roos-Van Hessen, when he was 12. Five years later, after multiple revisions, fundraisers to pay for printing costs, and wrangling with Disney’s copyright lawyers over an illustration, the book finally has been published.
“There were moments when I doubted it would ever be published,” he said. Read the full story
