Biggest Waste of Tax Money 

Trolley Tear Up

The brand new, much heralded, $40 million Charlotte trolley — which the city initially said would cost less than $20 million to build — ran for less than two years before the city tore up major parts of the line to make way for light rail. Since the new South Boulevard light rail line and the trolley weren't jointly planned, it turned out that parts of the tracks had to be moved and will later be rebuilt. But hey, both projects are already so far over budget, tens of millions of dollars more can’t possibly make a difference, now can it?

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
