Cold new flavors: Cold Stone Creamery at Cochran Commons now has a yogurt bar with a half-dozen low or nonfat flavors.

The 450-store chain TCBY, a pioneer in frozen yogurt, has opened a self-serve store at Town Center Plaza near UNC Charlotte.

North Charlotte

Bridge closed: Construction is under way to replace a bridge over McIntyre Creek on Miranda Road in north Charlotte.

Miranda Road will remain closed during construction, which is expected to take about 150 days.

Motorists can use Sunset and Beatties Ford roads as detours.

The bridge was damaged by flooding during storms in August last year.

Planners at the N.C. Department of Transportation decided to move up the schedule for replacing the bridge rather than repair it.


Community service: The Derita Lions Club, a volunteer organization, now meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at Texas Ranch Steakhouse, 1310 W. Sugar Creek Road.

For information, call Earl Thomas, 704 547-0499.
