Photographer Alvin Jacobs of Charlotte does what you’d expect a photographer to do: Lots of personal portraits and fashion photography are in his portfolio.

And then, he has a passion project. He travels to cities with social unrest. He’s captured protests in places like Ferguson, Baltimore, Charlotte. Last weekend, it was Charlottesville.

The golf world is focused on Charlotte right now. The PGA Championship continues Friday at Quail Hollow Club and will finish up on  Sunday. Across the nation though, participation in golf has dropped from about 30 million people in the mid 2000s to about 25 million today.  Steve Mona is the CEO of the World Golf Foundation, a group that promotes the sport.

There have been two more homicides in Charlotte. There have now been 57 homicides in Charlotte so far this year.  This time last year there were 33.

CMPD says it’s conducting a homicide investigation after officers found a deceased man with an apparent gunshot wound in a vehicle at the intersection of Fugate Avenue and Monroe Road last night.

It's been almost a week since a bridge construction crew sliced through cables that send power to Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands, forcing an evacuation of tourists.  Officials are now saying it could be this weekend or early next week before the power is back on.

To get some perspective on the economic impact of all this during what is the Outer Banks' peak season, we reached Wit Tuttell. He's the executive director of Visit North Carolina. That's the tourism arm of the state commerce department.

Ok, so we're going to get a bit gross.  A researcher with N.C. Central and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences is studying personal hygiene and its effects on the microbes on our skin. To do it, Julie Horvath is taking samples from people's arm pits and from in their ears - not the most appealing things to be studying. Nevertheless, we got curious about it and reached out to Horvath to find out more.

The clock is now ticking, the deadline is set. Republican leaders of the General Assembly have one month to redraw 28 state legislative districts ruled to be illegal racial gerrymanders.

If they don’t, a court will.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools

 

Most school districts don't have an ombudsman to handle complaints. But CMS got its first one this month. Earnest Winston says he sees his role as a way to provide families with the information they need in order to be "empowered and engaged." His hiring has drawn controversy.

This weekend there will be a commemoration marking the 100th anniversary of a lesser known piece of Charlotte's history. In the summer of 1917, the U.S. Army established a training camp on what is today the city’s westside. It was called Camp Greene and at its peak there were up to 60,000 troops there training for the battlefields of World War One. That was almost double the amount of people in Charlotte at the time.

The head of the North Carolina NAACP hopes to be allowed to enter the Statehouse again after Monday. The Rev. William Barber has been banned since May 30, when he was arrested during a protest over health care. He is charged with second-degree trespassing. A Wake County magistrate imposed the ban on Barber and other arrested protesters as a condition of their release on bond.  Barber says the ban is wrong for several reasons.
