Mecklenburg County health officials believe too few Latinos in the region are being tested or treated for HIV/AIDS.

Nationwide, Latinos make up nineteen percent of AIDS cases, but only 14-percent of the population. Those figures are reversed in Mecklenburg County, with Latinos comprising 10 percent of the population but less than five percent of AIDS cases.

Gloria Perez of the Metrolina AIDS Project says the data is inaccurate here because Latinos are not getting tested.

Everyone Should Vote

I have a dream that on Tuesday, November the 4th everyone, I mean everyone will cast their vote.

Ever since I cast my first vote by absentee ballot in 1972, I have been amazed at the number of people who have never cast a vote for President.

Still, others have looked at me with disdain and have wondered why I have taken my right to vote so seriously.

Two Ethanol Plants Planned for the Carolinas

Corn is not exactly abundant in the Southeast, so it may seem strange that East Coast Ethanol is choosing to open its facilities in this region.
But the company's Chief Financial Officer John Long says it's a good business strategy.
"When you look at all the logistics, it's cheaper to rail the corn down here and ship the ethanol out by truck than it is to rail the ethanol down here which is happening right now," says Long.

"How you doing, ma'am. I'm Daniel Johnson, running for Congress here in the district. Hope you'll consider voting for me"
