Organizers of one of the largest protests in region history hope to balloon their recent success into something bigger.
Greater Hickory Metro residents have a chance to grab a piece of gourd history and local treasure next month at a memorial luncheon for National Gourd Lady Margaret Sparkman.
YMCA officials announced this week they will hold a luncheon in Sparkman’s memory on June 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Adrian L. Shuford YMCA in Conover.
Authorities determined there was no evidence of criminal misconduct by a Hickory police officer who shot a man during a traffic stop in December.
District 25 Attorney Jay Gaither's office announced the findings this week after a six-month investigation of the shooting.
Fire officials say it will take crews about four months to complete a $105,000 renovation project at Newton Fire Department’s Station No. 3.
About a thousand people lined U.S. 321 Business in Newton during the weekend. Most were protesting anti-gay remarks made by a Maiden preacher earlier this month.
A group of counter protesters also gathered to preach their perspective on what the Bible says.
