Butler-West Charlotte on radio tonight

The Butler-West Charlotte football game at Lion Stadium tonight will be broadcast live by WFNZ 610 AM radio. The game begins at 7 pm. The Bulldogs have never beaten the Lions going back to when Tom Knotts coached in the late 1990s. Last season, West Charlotte stunned an undefeated Butler team in week 4 when they beat the Bulldogs in Matthews. The game was eventual forfeited by West Charlotte because of eligibility issues, but coach Mike Newsome said that doesn’t matter to the players who want to win it legitimately on the field.

“We’re talking to our kids about doing something we’ve never done,” Newsome said.

Myrick’s for electric and hydrogen powered cars

It wasn’t long ago you couldn’t find a Republican who publicly supported electric or hydrogen powered cars. Not so any more. From John McCain down the line, Republicans openly support alternative energy sources and believe the U.S. needs to wean itself off oil. Sue Myrick’s press release today:

I applaud the Governor for pledging to use anti-gouging laws to protect consumers and the EPA’s quick action to temporarily waive federal gas standards to prevent further price increases.”
“It is times like these that illustrate why we need to wean ourselves off our addiction to oil. A hurricane won’t spike the price of Hydrogen or an electric powered car now, would it?
Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09)
