Blimey O’Reilly! Ron Rivera Certainly Has a Lot to Answer For
Rule Britannia, indeed! The Carolina Panthers traveled across the pond to play — and WIN — in London. Our brother reporters at The Biscuit UK had some strong words for Coach Ron Rivera in the post-game presser, resulting in Coach making an abrupt “brexit.”

“I am artist and I have voice!”
On Nov. 5 (or NOW if you’re an early voter), Mecklenburg County residents will vote FOR! or against a 1/4 cent sales tax to fund arts & culture, parks, and education.
We asked Davita Galloway how she feels about it. And, when you ask Davita for how she feels … you get an answer.

Charlotte Selected for Grant to Empower Young Adult Parents
The Annie E. Casey Foundation and the Winer Family Foundation have awarded Leading on Opportunity a combined grant of $135,000 to help improve outcomes and close disparity gaps for low-income parents and their children. Charlotte is one of only four countries in the nation to receive these funds. The Biscuit will continue to follow this initiative as it develops.
Like you, we turn to our media friends to help us look beyond the creative community. They tell great stories we’re happy to share, but sometimes we’re left wondering if there isn’t another story just waiting underneath.

Back in 1917, Louis Ratcliffe started a floral business, appropriately named Ratcliffe’s Flowers, at 431 South Tryon Street. The business operated until 1989 when Carpe Diem moved into that location (which has since moved to Elizabeth).
In 2000, First Union (now Wells Fargo) decided to move the building across the street while it created an underground parking deck and the park now known as The Green. A year later, the building was moved back and incorporated into a new building. The old neon sign still stands at 431 S Tryon as a monument. So, the next time you park at The Green keep your eyes peeled for this piece of Charlotte history.
