Rebuilding teams are fun to discuss, their blank canvasses leave so much open to interpretation. That’s where the Charlotte Hornets are today. Following years of middling trades and overpays, the Hornets chose not to retain Kemba Walker last summer, beginning the tear-down that was expected for years. Losing one of the greatest players in franchise history was a blow but Aw the other end of that loss are a few small victories.

So when it became clear that the mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, where the convention was set to be held, was going to be a stickler on social distancing rules that would rain on Trump's parade, he chose a city that promised lax restrictions no matter what the health risks to attendees and the community at large.  On June 11, the Trump campaign announced Jacksonville, Florida, would host the raucous rally portion of the convention—the only part Trump really cares about. Meanwhile, all the behind-the-scenes wrangling...

The Duke’s Mayo Classic will feature Notre Dame against Wake Forest on Sept. 26 at Bank of America Stadium, home of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. The Duke’s Mayo Bowl will be held at the same site at a date to be determined later and feature a matchup between teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big Ten Conference. The Southeastern Conference will rotate with the Big Ten every other year moving forward. Last year, Kentucky defeated Virginia Tech 37-30 in the Belk Bowl on New Year’s Eve....
    I’ve already written twice about Donald Trump’s decision to kind of/mostly move the 2020 Republican National Convention from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Jacksonville, Florida. In my last installment, I noted that it would be difficult to meet the president’s goal of having a full house for the television cameras, in part, because people cannot be in two places at the same time. The Republican Party is contractually obligated to hold its national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, but Democratic Governor Roy Cooper would not guarantee that state health restrictions could be lifted for the Aug. 24-27 event. The solution, then, was to keep the convention in Charlotte in a strictly legal sense by holding all the regular business meetings there,...

    The Republican National Committee has chosen Jacksonville, Fla., to host part of this summer’s party convention, after largely abandoning the city of Charlotte, N.C., over disagreements on coronavirus-related crowd restrictions. The decision on Thursday was expected and followed a nationwide search for a new host city.

    North Carolina’s largest city has blocked its police department from purchasing chemical agents, like tear gas, normally used in crowd control or dispersal, in the next fiscal year. The move is part of several reforms approved by the Charlotte City Council Monday night. The motion introduced by Councilman Braxton Winston to eliminate the portion of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s budget designated for chemical weapons passed along a 9-2 vote. PHILADELPHIA POLICE INSPECTOR CHEERED BY FELLOW OFFICERS AS HE TURNS HIMSELF IN ON CHARGES OF ASSAULTING PROTESTER “The people of Charlotte will be pushing forward with new models to keep our community safe,” Winston told the Charlotte News & Observer. “We are not looking backwards.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Charlotte City Council has voted to stop funding chemical agents for police use after the city’s police boxed in and gassed demonstrators protesting the death of George Floyd. The measure to defund the chemical agents passed in a 9-2 vote Monday night after being introduced by a council member who was arrested during one of the protests, news outlets reported. After a demonstrator documented the use of gas last Tuesday in a widely shared video, the mayor condemned it and the police chief called it “disturbing.” The city’s police department has spent $103,000 on chemical agents in 2020, City Budget Director Ryan Bergman said. Taking them away “will be a slap on the wrist” for...

    Republican Party officials are in the process of scouting at least nine cities across at least six states as the party scrambles to find a new location to host portions of this summer's Republican National Convention. As Fox News reported earlier this week, the Republican National Committee (RNC) is moving toward holding the official business of its quadrennial presidential nominating convention in the original host city of Charlotte, N.C. – and the main celebrations in another city.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The police chief in North Carolina’s largest city will ask the state’s courts to release video of an encounter in which police officers appeared to use chemical agents on demonstrators who were boxed in while protesting the death of George Floyd. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney was set to immediately petition the courts for the videos’ release, the department said in a statement Wednesday night. The clash was recorded Tuesday by Justin LaFrancois, the publisher of an alternative Charlotte newspaper. He said officers fired tear gas and flash-bangs from in front of and behind the trapped protesters. He also said officers were perched on top of buildings and fired pepper balls onto the crowd.

    A protester in North Carolina was arrested with an AR-style rifle with two 30-round magazines — as cops used “chemical agents” in a shocking confrontation decried by local politicians. Disturbing live video from a reporter with Queen City Nerve shows protesters marching through Charlotte Tuesday with their hands in the air chanting “Don’t shoot” — before a series of flash bangs left everyone scrambling and screaming. However, they appeared to be penned in from all sides by riot police as smoke from tear gas enveloped the air around them, with the narrator saying pellets were also being fired from a car park to the side. “It went bad really fast,” Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles admitted on Kiss 95.1 Wednesday, calling...
    Hours after President Trump tweeted that the GOP is “now forced to seek another” location other than Charlotte, N.C., to host this summer’s Republican National Convention, party officials said that the convention indeed “will be held in another city.” And Republican sources confirm to Fox News that the search for a new site is getting underway, with party officials heading to Nashville, Tenn., later this week. TRUMP SAYS GOP 'FORCED' TO SEEK OTHER SITE TO HOST CONVENTION The decision comes after North Carolina's Democratic governor said GOP leaders needed to provide plans for a scaled-down event due to coronavirus pandemic health concerns.

    North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper says the likelihood that the Republican National Convention will take place in Charlotte depends on the party's willingness to scale back its event. He informed the Republican National Committee in a letter that it's "very unlikely" the GOP would be able to host a "full convention" in August. In the ongoing saga between the RNC and Cooper's administration, the two are at odds over health and safety measures and the size of the crowds that can be accommodated. "They have demanded a full 19,000-person crowd at the inside arena in Charlotte. We've continued to say we want to talk with you about a scaled-down convention, but we cannot guarantee you that at the end of August,...

    BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. could not have had a bumpier return to racing after NASCAR’s 10-week shutdown. How bad was it? Stenhouse crashed on the first lap of the first race back and finished last. He followed it with a 25th-place finish at the second Cup race at Darlington Raceway, then was 24th in the Coca-Cola 600. In three races, Stenhouse plummeted seven spots in the standings to 24th. Stenhouse finally snapped out of it Thursday night in a second visit to Charlotte Motor Speedway with a fourth-place finish for his new JTG-Daugherty Racing team. “It was just really good to just have a smooth race with really no issues,” Stenhouse said. “It...
    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina’s top health official asked Friday for more details on how GOP leaders will protect attendees of a Republican National Convention this summer during the COVID-19 pandemic. President Donald Trump has threatened to move his formal renomination elsewhere if he does not soon get guarantees of being able to hold a large-scale event. In a letter responding to correspondence by convention officials, state Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy Cohen sought more specifics beyond the safety protocols the GOP leaders said they want approved for the August event in Charlotte. In particular, Cohen asked to confirm whether Trump wanted to hold his nomination event on the convention’s final night with “people together in a crowd-like...
    Hours after North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper called on the Republican National Committee to outline how the party plans to conduct a safe national convention, the RNC sent a list of health and safety protocols for approval on Thursday. The memo, addressed to the Democratic governor, came with a hard deadline of June 3.  Earlier this month, the CEO of Charlotte's Host Committee, John Lassiter, told the Charlotte Business Journal that the local body has raised more than $50 million of its $70 million fundraising goal for this year's convention. That money would not move with the convention to a new venue in Florida or Georgia.  The letter makes no mention of wearing face masks, which is recommended by the Centers for...
