Two vigils were planned in Charlotte Sunday to remember victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris - one at mid-afternoon organized by leaders of the local French community at Freedom Park and another organized by the Islamic Center of Charlotte this evening at Marshall Park. Meanwhile, South Carolina authorities have been using a new law to check up on violations at small day cares, and the campaign has led to the closing of 56 day care homes.

Sunday in San Diego, a Charlotte woman named Harriette Thompson ran her 15th marathon in 16 years. A pretty impressive accomplishment in its own right, but it’s downright remarkable when you consider she’s about to turn 92 years old. Thompson finished the 26.2 mile race in just over seven hours---setting a new record for a woman over the age of 90. WFAE's Duncan McFadyen visited Thompson at her Charlotte home before she left for the marathon.
