Will you have to help pay Duke's $490 Million Dollar Coal Ash cleanup bill?

North Carolina regulators completed hearings on Friday on due's proposed rate hike, with regulators asking why Duke didn't aggressively pursue coal ash cleanup until they were forced to by state and federal regulations. A ruling is expected in December.

Lawrence is the current qb for Clemson, if you have living under a rock.

Meet Becky and Bessie. They are 8 year old bonded sisters that need to be adopted together. Becky just had one of her back legs removed due to bone cancer.

Both girls are spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.
