E3D organizer Pat Millen (fifth from left) received a check for $10,320 from Peninsula Community Foundation chair Todd Wiebusch. With them are others associated with both End Davidson’s Digital Divide and the foundation.
The Lake Norman community is responding to the technology challenge issued earlier this year by Davidson-based nonprofit E3D, which wants to put computers in the hands local schoolkids who lack them. Organizer Pat Millen says help is coming in big and small ways – from donors as large as the Peninsula Community Foundation to events like the Biggest Lemonade Stand Day Ever planned in Davidson Saturday.
The Peninsula Community Foundation recently presented E3D with a check for $10,320 to help fund the group’s goal of helping close the digital gap among families in local schools. Working with local social service and school leaders, E3D is identifying students at public schools in Cornelius and Davidson who lack computers and internet connections.

DAVIDSON – A few years ago over coffee in downtown Davidson, I talked to Rabbi Michael Shields about the growth of his congregation and it search for a permanent home. He told me that Davidson seemed a natural location for Lake Norman’s Jewish community to put down permanent roots. Much has happened since then, including a merger of the local Reform and Conservative Congregations, and now the renamed Temple Kol Tikvah of Lake Norman has that long-dreamed of home. This Sunday, April 14, the congregation will dedicate the new synagogue at 605 South St. – the first permanent synagogue between Charlotte and Statesville. Read the full story

Davidson native and musician Jake Troth got a moment in the spotlight Wednesday, Jan. 2, when he performed live on CBS’s “Late Night With David Letterman” alongside rapper Big Boi. They performed “Apple of My Eye,” a hit-in-the-making Mr. Troth co-wrote with Big Boi, of Outkast fame.
Jake Troth sings with Big Boi on “Late Night with David Letterman.”
The tune comes off Big Bio’s recently released album “Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors,” available on iTunes.
In a Facebook post Wednesday afternoon he described the gig on “Letterman” as his first TV appearance.
Mr. Troth, 24, is making a name for himself well beyond his home town, both behind the scenes as a ghostwriter and producer and for his own music.
He studied fashion design at Savannah College of Art and Design, but has long been into music. He’s been profiled as a “GreyGoose Rising Icon,” where he’s noted for mixing “rock, folk and Broadway-inspired tunes into his own songwriting and performances.” His song “Material Things” was the theme song for the VH1 show “House of Consignment,” and his music has been featured on the VH1 show “Mob Wives,” ABC Family’ s “Jane by Design,” and MTV’s “TeenWolf” and “Underemployed.”
