Fans of the movie "Dirty Dancing" are gathering in the small mountain town of Lake Lure this weekend for the "Dirty Dancing Festival." Much of the movie was shot there. This year is the 25th anniversary of the film's release.

Everyone knows the line: "Nobody puts baby in a corner.'

Dirty Dancing helped catapult Patrick Swayze into stardom. And it was his death from cancer in 2009 that became the impetus for the Dirty Dancing Festival in Lake Lure in Rutherford County. Lots of people called the town and asked if they were going to do anything special.



The new Giordana Velodrome in Rock Hill is hosting its first national championships this weekend. Cyclists are coming from around the country to compete in what’s called the Elite Omnium.

The Omnium is to bikes what the decathlon is to track and field. Thad Fischer is the man in charge of all things cycling for the city of Rock Hill.

Christopher Warren-Green has renewed his contract as music director of the Charlotte Symphony.  The man who conducted during the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last year will be staying on in Charlotte through the summer of 2016.  And Warren-Green has some big ambitions.

About 1,700 people packed into the NASCAR Technical Institute in Mooresville yesterday for what was billed as a victory rally for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan.

Tim Conway of Harrisburg waited outside with his 16-year-old daughter, hoping to get in. He said the choice of Ryan for a running mate makes for a perfect 1-2 punch. He likes that Ryan has experience as chairman of the House Budget Committee.

Canada’s largest home improvement retailer has rejected an offer from Lowe’s to buy the company. WFAE’s Marshall Terry has more on that story.

There will no longer be free unlimited access to the Charlotte Observer's online edition starting later this year. In a call with analysts, the company that owns the Observer says it will install pay-walls before the year is over.

McClatchy Newspapers didn’t exactly how much they’ll start charging for access to Charlotte Observer.com. But the company did talk about a new combined digital and print subscription package it will offer and what it will include.

A Concord woman struck gold in a thrift store after buying a $10 painting that's been valued at upwards of $20,000.

Beth Feeback found the painting at a Goodwill store near Greensboro and only wanted it for the canvas. She planned to paint over it with her own artwork.

“I paint kind of oddball stuff,” Feeback says. “I’ll like paint a cat head over Jesus’ face on some kind of dollar store iconography painting and then, you know, Jesus is a cat, which is kind of fun.”
