Conover has canceled its annual Christmas in the Park event due to a forecast for heavy rain Tuesday evening.
The event will not be rescheduled, according to a release from the city.
N.C. Rep. Mark Hilton won't seek a seventh term in the N.C. House, and he said the decision was driven by a desire to spend more time with his family â€” not by growing suspicions surrounding loans he received from an economic development company operated by a fellow legislator.
"The time has come for me to spend more time with my family," he said.
"When I first got elected, I wasn't married, and I had no children.
Since then, me and my wife have been procreating and having children biannually. We have three and we are going to stop there."
The colors of the holiday season are on full display in greenhouses throughout the Catawba County Schools system - and theyâ€™re on display in The O-N-E, too.
Be sure to get a copy of the Tuesday O-N-E for photos and stories about area high school studentsâ€™ efforts to grow poinsettias - and their experience. Readers will also find out how to support this learning initiative - while adding holiday color to their homes - in The O-N-Eâ€™s coverage online, http://www.observernewsonline.com/content/sales-support-students.
