He thanked his wife, EMTs, and medical staff for their roles in ensuring he could be treated.Stein said Anna's recognition of the signs of stroke was critical to ensuring he got the care he needed. He shared more information from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) about what to look for if you believe someone may be facing a stroke.Neurologist Dr. Dena Little with UNC Medical Center says time lost is brain lost and the best treatments can only be given within a few hours of the symptoms.It's why she says knowing the signs and symptoms are so important.READ MORE: https://www.wcnc.com/article/news/politics/north-carolina-politics/north-carolina-ag-josh-stein-stroke-health-politics-regional/275-10ae29c7-16ef-4770-a0d1-245c29dfcf92On Wednesday, the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners will start hearing public feedback from the community on its upcoming budget.Teachers, education advocates, and other stakeholders are expected to be at the meeting to advocate for more money for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.The district is poised to get less than half of the additional money it requested from the county government.The CMS school board and others have a few weeks to try and convince members of the Mecklenburg BOCC to give them additional dollars for the upcoming school year.READ MORE: https://www.wcnc.com/article/news/education/cms-advocates-petition-mecklenburg-county-funding/275-053a8237-80dc-421b-b54e-d9394eddc2f9Watch Wake Up Charlotte each weekday morning from 4:30 to 7 a.m. on WCNC Charlotte, and as always, join the conversation on social media using #WakeUpCLT!

Shenanigans On Sheridan

On this episode of “Shenanigans On Sheridan” Chris and Phill invite their downstairs neighbor Ashely and they discuss the time Chris was once propositioned by an 80 year old man and his tight-40 wife. Unfortunately for Chris, he doesn’t pick up on social cues too well. Listen to the episode and tell me it doesn’t sound like a proposition for a threesome. There’s a repair man, scotch, 3 people, I mean, come on. Chris is such a loser.
