Happy Thursday, Charlotte Smart Person

Today is Honesty Day, so there are a few things I want to get off my chest. First, my favorite movie right now is "Pitch Perfect." I'm obsessed, and will probably see the sequel the day it comes out. Second, I was a Tennessee Titans fan before I moved to Charlotte. It was a mistake. Go Panthers. Finally, this is my first time writing the newsletter. The name's Corey Inscoe. Nice to meet you.

Your Thursday headlines:
  • Bank troubles: A Charlotte-area whistleblower suing Wells Fargo is now facing foreclosure from the same bank. “The reason I can’t pay my mortgage is because I did my job at the bank,” Robert Kraus says.
  • Coal ash: Much of the coal ash at two Duke Energy power plants in Eden and Wilmington will stay on site in lined landfills. The landfills will hold more than 6 million tons of coal ash combined.
  • Big beer: Triple C Brewing has finished nearly $600,000 in upgrades, boosting its brewing capacity by 50 percent. We've said it before: C5 is all for more local beer.
