Federal regulators have concluded their investigation of a power outage that led one of Duke Energy's nuclear reactors on Lake Wylie to shut down abruptly in April.

A preliminary report from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission says Duke didn't follow
proper guidelines in testing upgraded equipment on one of its power generators at the plant.  NRC spokesman Roger Hannah says the commission will wait on deciding on whether to issue a violation to Duke.

We’re still talking about the chicken suqaar from Jamile’s.

Yes, the shrimp rolls at Ben Thahn (Vietnamese) were fresh and delicious. And the tres leches and flan from El Purgarcito (Salvadoran) sweetly capped our afternoon.

But Jamile’s (Somali) chicken suqaar—a stewed chicken dish prepared with greens, salad lettuces, and spongy bread called canjeero—was flat out phenomenal.

It's a tough week to be a cankerworm in Charlotte. The planes have taken to the air and are dropping a substance that's designed to make a deadly meal for the wormy millions. City officials hope this week’s spraying will vastly thin the ranks of the cankerworms.  They expect the green worms back next year, but in lower numbers.  WFAE's Lisa Miller considers the plight of the cankerworm as the corpses begin to mount.
