North Carolina Treasurer Dale Folwell, who has investment responsibility for the state’s pension funds, said he voted the 4.9 million shares held by the retirement plans against four of the bank’s 15 directors.

Tree falls on church

A large tree fell on the fellowship hall at New Outreach Christian Center on Monday during the early after rain storm. Pastor Brenda Stevenson said that they are in need of volunteers with saws to cut up the wood. The fellowship hall serves as the area where Pastor Stevenson and members of the church feed the needy three times a week. The church is located at 3900 Gossett Avenue in Charlotte.
