Thursday’s full moon was the last full moon of winter and the smallest full moon of 2015. The smallest full moon of the year occurs when the moon is farthest away from Earth. It’s sometimes called the micromoon or minimoon. You can see the closest and biggest full moon of the year on Sept. 28, 2015 — the Harvest Moon. (Source: EarthSky.org)Thu, 05 Mar 2015 23:43:30 -0500
A woman said she and her 5-year-old son came face to face with a gunman feet away from their home Wednesday night near Deanna Road and Nations Ford Road.
The man approached the mother and demanded money and her son quickly ran off.

He then ran back over to the woman and put a gun to her head.
She said he stole her cellphone, money and jewelry and drove away in a black Honda.

Interstate 77 toll lanes are on track to being built after a judge denied an injunction to stop it.
The group Widen I-77, which has fought the proposed toll lanes from the beginning, posted a message to its website Thursday.
The post said that Judge Oswald Smith III denied the motion for a preliminary injunction.
Eyewitness News was in Alamance County Tuesday to see Widen I-77 in court as they fought the North Carolina Department of Transportation and Mobility Partners, which would build and run the toll lanes.
A group leader testified the toll lanes would be much more expensive in the long run than simply widening the road without tolls.
The group asked for an injunction to stop construction on the toll lanes before it even begins.
The state argued the tolls are needed as a solution for one of the most congested roadways in the state.
The plan is to build them on a 26-mile stretch of I-77 from uptown Charlotte to Mooresville.
Mobility Partners hopes to begin construction this summer, but Widen I-77 leaders said the fight isn't over yet.
They said they will be meeting with attorneys Friday morning.
