CMS superintendent connects with Ballantyne by Kayla Berenson

CHARLOTTE – Earnest Winston, superintendent of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, addressed the Ballantyne Breakfast Club on Oct. 5 about graduation rates, plans for teachers and his vision for schools in the south Charlotte area. Resolving the overcrowding in south Charlotte schools is a top priority for the school board, according to Winston. “We recognize that growth and overcrowding are issues here,” Winston said. “Through our future bond referendums and our existing 2017 bond, we are going to try and address those over-

“We recognize that growth and overcrowding are issues here.” - Earnest Winston crowding issues. We are well aware that they exist.” In addition to the 2017 bond, Winston believes future referendums will be made to help resolve the issue. Winston is also focused on helping Community House Middle School, which has 1,950 students. Overcrowded high schools are also a concern

for parents. However, the process of establishing a new high school in south Charlotte is going to take time, Winston said. “We are studying a number of different options to provide that relief that was promised in the 2017 bond,” Winston said. “And as part of that process, we are engaging our board members, and see CMS, Page 4A

WAXHAW – After working in a salon studio for 14 years, a popular hairstylist has opened a high-end salon of her own. While some may be hesitant to go to a high-end salon because of the price, Brush’d Salon owner Nikki Bourgeault said the quality of the salon’s stylists and products make the experience worth the cost. Bourgeault has styled shows for New York Fashion Week, served as the lead makeup artist for an NFL cheerleading team and worked on well-known television shows. “I think a lot of it is what I have to bring to the table as far as my background and education,” Bourgeault said. “I’ve been in this industry for 14 years. And I have been a leader and have trained each stylist [at Brush’d] individually.” Bourgeault has also worked as a teacher for stylists at Aveda and works as a color educator for the hair brand Kevin Murphy. The stylists at Brush’d will be frequently re-educated to keep up with the latest trends in hair and makeup. The salon will be open Tuesday through Saturday, with the first two days of the week primarily used for education on current and upcoming fads like the long bob, shag cut and balayage color. “Education is super important to me for all of our staff,” Bourgeault said. “It’s necessary to keep them up to date with all the new and latest trends, and I want to make sure they are educating their clients as well.” In addition to the personal see SALON, Page 4A

Each Keller Williams Office is Independently Owned and Operated

CHARLOTTE – Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Chief Kerr Putney will retire at the end of this year and will return in the spring to continue his work around community policing, according to City Manager Marcus Jones. Putney will officially retire Jan. 1, 2020. Following a two-month hiatus, he’ll resume his role as police chief in March. Jones will name an interim chief to serve during Putney’s short hiatus. Putney will step down from the role following the Republican National Convention and a permanent replacement will be named at that time. “Chief Putney made a commitment to Charlotte to lead our security efforts during the RNC and I know that is important to him,” Jones said. “Because of his experience with the city’s efforts for the DNC in 2012 and his involvement with the current RNC planning, I want him to return and believe this approach gives us the best opportunity to host a more successful RNC for our residents, business community and visitors while also helping Chief Putney meet his personal commitments.” Putney joined CMPD in 1992 as a patrol officer, working his way up through the ranks, and was promoted to deputy chief of police in 2007. He was sworn in as Charlotte’s chief of police on July 1, 2015.

City updating business grant program by Kayla Berenson

In the past two weeks, 2,000 new jobs were announced in Charlotte. The city’s economic development committee will try to keep the trend constant by presenting a new Business Investment Grant Plan pilot program to Charlotte City Council. The plan has not been updated since 1998. According to Business Recruitment and Retention Leader Fran West, today’s projects in Charlotte do not align with the current policy, prompting an update. The 12-month pilot program would be more flexible than the current plan. It will incentivize businesses to locate in Charlotte’s targeted business areas, but it would also focus on the quality and quantity of jobs beyond location. Committee members were concerned about an equity gap in the jobs coming to Charlotte. “One of the conversations we’ve been having on council is that the quality of jobs… doesn’t correlate perfectly with the amount of income that’s being paid,” Vice Chairman Ed Driggs said. “In fact, I think we have a growing

concern that we’re not addressing the economic opportunity gap by stressing high levels of income with our incentives… Before it was just more jobs, higher salary, that equals bigger economic impact, and now we’re getting more into the social impact.” West said the program would take into account numbers from Standard Occupation Codes, and give a more comprehensive look at the company’s career growth, location, averages and benefits, which would incentivize them. Additionally, there were concerns about keeping jobs available to Charlotte locals. Councilman Matt Newton said he hoped to see a plan with the city’s workforce development partners to source employees locally. Assistant City Manager Tracy Dodson said there are partnerships in place and each company is customized. However, the city is doing what it can to provide opportunities for citizens to form relationships and partnerships. The pilot program would also allow businesses outside of the target area to be eligible for grants, as long as the business meets the majority of the grant requirements. Previously, businesses had to be in the target area as well as

meet all of the grant requirements. One of the requirements that was hard for businesses to meet was getting a $30 million investment. Businesses no longer have to meet that requirement but need to have at least $3 million in investments. “If you’re looking at a new back office support center, that’s going to be a very challenging number to get to,” West said. “Those could be great jobs with a great career path, so we wanted to make sure we could still be competitive in bringing those projects to Charlotte because I will tell you, every city, I feel like, is chasing that type of project. And so it will be very competitive in nature.” Though the requirements are more flexible, not every business that applies for a grant will get one. “Just because you check the boxes doesn’t mean that you get a grant,” West said. “We do a lot of homework and a lot of digging around, meeting and talking because we want to make sure of who and what we’re bringing here.” The committee approved the recommendation and it will be presented to city council.

relationships between clients and stylists, Bourgeault strives to make each visit to Brush’d a personal hair care and makeup experience. “We really want to take into account the client’s skin tone, face shape and other important factors instead of just giving them a standard experience,” Bourgeault said. To help stylists achieve this goal, Bourgeault said Brush’d will use high-end, high-quality products from Kevin Murphy Hair and Jane Iredale Makeup. “These products can’t be found at a grocery store, Target or CVS,” Bourgeault said. “They are exclusively at this salon.” Though Bourgeault hopes the experience and products at Brush’d will set it apart from other high-end salons, she also believes her commitment to actively working at the salon while running the business will

be unique. “I think it’s really rare nowadays to actually go into a salon and see the owner there,” Bourgeault said. “And I will be there, working.” The salon will feature eight salon chairs, three hair washing stations, a makeup station and a selfie wall for clients to take pictures of their hair after their service. Prices for services will vary depending on stylists’ experience and education. Grand opening Brush'd Salon offers tours and discounts from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 12 at its new location at 9925 Rea Road, Waxhaw.

ultimately, they will make a decision on what that outcome will look like. But we’re still committed to providing relief in the south part of town. But it is a process that we’re going through, and it’s important that we engage board members as part of that process.” Mary McCray, who chairs the school board, said there are additional challenges when it comes to the new high school. “When you’re given a challenge, you rise to the challenge, so the board did,” McCray said. “Legally, we can only build on land that we own. So it sort of puts us behind the 8-ball whenever staff brings us recommendations and we get out in front and talk about those recommendations as if the board has approved them. The board has not approved anything. Staff is churning and churning to bring those recommendations to us when it comes to various things we can do for the new south high school.” South Charlotte resident and former CMS teacher Rhonda Rivers said the growth is a testament to education in the area. “It’s a compliment to the quality of education that children in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and in South Meck that they’ve been receiving here in south Charlotte and the Ballantyne area,” Rivers said. “My main concern is that we can keep up with the growth, making sure that children have adequate facilities and space to learn and making sure that we can continue to recruit and retain quality teachers.” Rivers said it meant a lot to her and other residents that Winston made an effort to address their growth concerns. “It says that he’s willing to make sure he partners with parents and understands the vision so that we can collaborate and work together and move in the same direction,” she said. “He shows us that he is involved, interested and informed of the needs in every area of town and that’s important to the parents. I think he was well-received today and that’s important. We have to be on the

same team and understand that at the end of the day, it’s all about what the children need.” Winston said it is important for him to hear parents’ concerns. Before the meeting, he took the time to meet with other concerned parents in the area. “We may not always walk away in agreement on how to come to resolution, but I think it is very important that people feel that they’ve been heard, that people care about the issues that they’ve been raising and hopefully together, we can come to a resolution that meets everyone’s needs,” Winston said. Winston also said in addition to working with parents, he feels lucky to work with an engaged board, teachers and support staff, from janitors to cafeteria workers and bus drivers. “I am still enjoying the job and the people that I have the privilege of working with,” Winston said. “Some people tell me I’ve got a tough job, but I know that working together collectively, it’s not an impossible job.”

New powers emerge on the gridiron


For much of this season, the Charlotte Latin boys soccer team has chased hope. It’s been a while since any Charlotte-area team has advanced past the state semis in the NCISAA’s highest division of boys soccer. Country Day lost in the semifinals in 2015, but it was

he football powers that have long dominated the four major conferences in Union County, Matthews, Mint Hill and southern Mecklenburg County are idling while threats are emerging all around them, ready to assert their domination as we head into the 2020s. I spent last Friday on the sidelines at Weddington High School in utter disbelief. I’ve been covering Charlotte Catholic for over a decade now, and the whooping they got from the Warriors was something I’ve never seen before and may never see again. Weddington, the defending 3-AA champs, is hardly an underdog, but the Warriors were 0-6 all time against Catholic entering that game. Weddington lost a good portion of their offensive firepower – save for all-American running back Will Shipley, who is spectacular by the way – and much of their defense. But they’ve retooled in a big way. Weddington beat Catholic 45-0 last week. The Cougars hadn’t lost a conference game since 2009, a streak of 66 consecutive games. I don’t think they’ve ever lost quite like that. The Warriors are emphatically now the new class of the Southern Carolinas. But look around ... it’s happening everywhere. Take the Southwestern 4A, where Butler has set the standard for so long. They beat Myers Park to win it last season but needed overtime to beat winless Rocky River two weeks ago. They rebounded to beat Porter Ridge last week, but still. On Oct. 12, Butler will face nationally ranked Myers Park, who is trying to take over that conference after falling in the regional final last year. How about in the So. Meck 7? Ardrey Kell was awarded the conference title last year after three teams finished 5-1 in league play, but the Knights finished with a losing record. That didn’t seem very championship-worthy to me. The Knights are 5-1 overall this season and flexing their muscles as the league standard. It looks like similar things could

Bucs rally for confidence-boosting win

We believe this group can compete for a state championship and it’s games like this that really validate it and lets us know that we’re good enough and we have the confidence to do it.” • Dustin Swineheart Country Day coach

by Andrew Stark

CHARLOTTE – The Country Day soccer team has been inconsistent at times this season, and it seemed that was going to be the case again Oct. 3 as rival and unbeaten Charlotte Latin raced out to a 3-0 halftime lead. It had to have been a case of here we go again for the Bucs, who had given up three firsthalf goals in the team’s previous meeting earlier this month before eventually falling, 5-1.

But this time it was different. “At halftime we told the boys this,” said Country Day coach Dustin Swineheart. “The second half of this game is a mental battle and it’s the belief that you think you can go and get this game back. A game like this can really boost this and help these guys have the confidence, but it was up to them.” The Bucs came out in the second half with much more confidence, looking to prove they were capable of competing with the best in the state, despite their

10-9 overall record and 5-4 mark in the CISAA that has them tied with Providence Day for third place in the conference. “We’re more dangerous than the scoreboard indicated last time, and I think that’s why teams have been sleeping on us,” said senior Philip Scheurer. “This time it came down to finishing chances, and we were able to make the most of ours.” The Bucs got a goal and an assist from Johnny Bingham, but see BUCS, Page 3B

Ardrey Kell, CISAA teams on the rise 1. Myers Park (6-0) Last week: No. 1 Result: Beat Rocky River 62-7 This week: Butler (4-2) Quarterback Drake Maye threw five touchdown passes as the Mustangs destroyed Rocky River 62-7. The Mustang offense is averaging 56.8 points per game this season. That’s more than three touchdowns per game better than last year’s squad scored when they reached the regional final. Even scarier, this defense has three shutouts and allowed 31 points through six games. Both of those statistics are by far school records at this pace, but bigger tests

await for Myers Park starting this week with Butler. These teams have jockeyed for position over the last couple seasons, splitting the last four meetings. Myers Park has won two of the past three though, knocking Butler out of the playoffs both times. 2. Ardrey Kell (5-1) Last week: No. 4 Result: Beat Harding 28-27 This week: at West Meck (3-2) The job Greg Jachym has done in his first season with the Knights has been nothing short of miraculous. This team came into the year surrounded by

hype that maybe this could be the season they’d put it all together, but there were so many questions. Jachym and his talented team have provided all of the answers, including last week when they edged Harding by a point. But good teams find a way to win, and the Knights are proving they’re legit each and every week. This week is a battle of defending co-conference champs from last year. 3. Providence Day (5-1) Last week: No. 3 Result: Lost 14-13 to Christ School see SUPER 7, Page 2B

This week: at Charlotte Latin (6-0) The Chargers blew a golden opportunity last week when their offense couldn’t get going against Christ School and they suffered their first loss of the season. They won’t move down, however, because of what happened around them. Defensive end Jacolbe Cowan made the announcement that he’s committed to Ohio State, and he teams with North Carolina commit Kedrick Bingley-Jones to form a nasty defensive front. They’ll need the offense to play much better, but this front four is good enough to carry the Chargers to a state title.

be at play in the CISAA, a league mostly dominated by Charlotte Christian over the past decade or so. The Knights had a shocking 50-point loss earlier in the season and were defeated by Country Day to end a long conference winning streak. I’m not ready to say Charlotte Christian is losing its grip on the top spot, it’s that others have come up to challenge the Knights. Country Day is 6-1, off to its best start in at least a decade. Charlotte Latin, despite losing its starting quarterback early in the season, is 6-0 and off to its best start since Daniel Jones was its quarterback. Providence Day looked unstoppable until they sort of stopped themselves in a 14-13 loss to Christ School that dropped the Chargers down to 5-1. Providence Day and Latin meet this week in a critical battle, which will have the winner that much closer to joining Country Day as they challenge Charlotte Christian. The Knights aren’t out of it. Christian is on its third quarterback already this season, but starter Matthew Tuomala is due back from injury soon and they’re talented and well-coached. This week will be a big one with huge conference matchups across the board, and time will tell how it all will play out. But don’t say I didn’t tell you so if the powers change across the board in 2019.

4. Butler (4-2) Last week: No. 5 Result: Beat Porter Ridge 35-14 This week: at Myers Park (6-0) The Bulldogs struggled to do anything last week and ended regulation tied before beating winless Rocky River in overtime. Last week, the Bulldogs got defensive and shut down a Porter Ridge ground attack that had been running for close to 300 yards per game during their four-game win streak. But the Bulldogs were resilient, limiting the Pirates to just 37 rushing yards on a paltry 1.3 yards per carry. They’ll need more of that defense this week as the Bulldogs try to slow down unbeaten Myers Park. 5. Charlotte Latin (6-0) Last week: No. 6 Result: Beat High Point Christian (28-14) This week: at Providence Day (5-1) The Hawks just keep winning. For the second consecutive week, coach Justin Hardin led his team to big road wins, this one defeating High Point Christian by two touchdowns. The Hawks defense forced five turnovers to help with their effort. Offensively, Charles Watson threw a pair of touchdowns to Andrew Sum-

ichrast and Carter Stockwell, who also added a rushing touchdown. Ja’varis Bufford also added a late score that essentially put the game away. A win over the Chargers would make a big statement. 6. Country Day (6-1) Last week: No. 7 Result: Beat Catawba Ridge 28-21 This week: at Ravenscroft (5-2) Quarterback Russell Tabor and receiver Stephen Payne have a nice connection going, and the two helped carry Country Day to a big non-conference win last week against Fort Mill’s newest public school. Tabor was 8-of-15 for 165 yards, two touchdowns and a pick. Tabor also ran five times for 18 yards and another two scores. Payne was the beneficiary of both Tabor touchdown passes and finished with four catches for 117 yards.

7. Charlotte Christian (3-2) Last week: N/R Result: Beat Trinity Christian (28-20) This week: Christ School (4-1) The Knights took down a Trinity Christian team that was unbeaten with star running back Chavon Mceachern and three offensive linemen that are 350 pounds or bigger. They hadn’t scored less than 49 points in a game, but the Knights defense tightened up and played exceptionally well. Offensively, Henry Rutledge led the ground game that has the Knights back in business after an unexpected loss to Country Day. Charlotte Christian will have to defend the pass this week against the Greenies, but a win could set them up to run the table down the stretch. Dropped out: Charlotte Catholic (2-3)

Week 8 high school football game picks Ardrey Kell (5-1) at West Meck (3-2) Jared Joseph, Cedric Gray and Michael Hetzel continue to star on offense for Ardrey Kell, who may have been fortunate to win by one point over Harding last week. West Meck tied for the conference championship last year, and running back Willie Hopper Jr. and Jmari Taylor have already run for over 1,000 yards combined. Winner: Ardrey Kell Butler (4-2) at Myers Park (6-0) The heavyweights of the Southwestern 4A meet for the showdown of the year. Myers Park is averaging more than 58 points per game while the defense has allowed just 31 total points through six games this year. Butler clamped down on Porter Ridge’s run game last week and showed why that defense can be elite. Can the offense keep up, though? Winner: Myers Park Sun Valley (1-5) at Charlotte Catholic (2-3) Parkwood mauled Sun Valley 40-6 last week, officially putting an end to any playoff hopes unless the Spartans score a few highly improbable wins starting with this one. As bad as the Cougars looked last week, they are the defending state champs until someone beats them in the playoffs and should come out playing with a purpose. Winner: Charlotte Catholic Charlotte Christian (3-2) at Christ School (4-1) Charlotte Christian looked much better last week with backup Brett Adams holding it down for injured starter Matthew Tuomala. Christ School has one of the top QBs in the state with Navy Shuler, but this Christian defense looked unbreakable last week. Winner: Charlotte Christian Country Day (6-1) at Ravenscroft (4-2) Country Day quarterback Russell Tabor is making big plays with his arm and legs, leading the Bucs revival. Ravenscroft quarterback Gavin Mason has over 1,000 yards, 14 touchdowns and loves to spread the ball around. Whichever quarterback plays better wins. Winner: Country Day

Charlotte Latin (6-0) at Providence Day (5-1) The winner of this game will be set to challenge for the league title while the loser automatically gets put in a tough spot. Latin forced five turnovers last week and got another great game from quarterback Charles Watson and running back Carter Stockwell. The Providence Day defense is nasty, but the offense has to get it in gear against this opportunistic defense. Winner: Providence Day Covenant Day (2-5) at High Point Christian (4-2) Covenant Day moved the ball well last week against Metrolina Christian but couldn’t stop the Warriors defensively despite forcing three turnovers. Speaking of turnovers, High Point Christian committed five of them at home last week and could be upset prone. Winner: High Point Christian Independence (3-3) at Porter Ridge (4-2) Indy quarterback Arnold Taylor threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns with Brevin Caldwell and Trevor Bryan (two TDs) as the beneficiaries. Porter Ridge was limited to 1.3 yards per carry last week at Butler, but the Pirates want to run the ball. Who wins the battle of two conflicting styles of play? Winner: Porter Ridge Providence (2-5) at South Meck (0-7) Providence got going on the ground with Jamir Price and Jake Snapp, who scored two rushing touchdowns and on a 70-something yard catch and run. South Meck is still looking for its first win of the season and should get it soon, just maybe not this week as the Panthers look to run through the conference schedule. Winner: Providence Rocky River (0-5) at Hickory Ridge (5-1) Rocky River was very impressive in a close loss to Butler two weeks ago but couldn’t even get in the way of Myers Park last week. Hickory Ridge is still alive in the Southwestern 4A title chase and won’t be distracted this week. WInner: Hickory Ridge

Country Day stars Tyler Swineheart (No. 10) and Philip Scheurer were instrumental in the 5-4 win over 14-0 Charlotte Latin on Oct. 3. Swineheart scored three second half goals and Scheurer put in the winner with 46 seconds left in regulation to help the Bucs overcome a 3-0 halftime deficit. Andrew Stark/SCW photo

In the win over Latin, it was the Bucs who controlled the set pieces and took advantage of the 50-50 balls. Coach Swineheart said that in some of the losses, those have been the issues that have held his team back, but the margin for error has always been small. Now, with a win over an unbeaten rival after an unlikely comeback, coach Swineheart and his guys are hoping the momentum carries over into the postseason. “I don’t think anybody but our fans and ourselves thought we had a chance today,” Scheurer said. “We were down 3-0 and it was pretty demoralizing, but I always knew there was a chance. Up until the last minute we kept on fighting and it turned out for us. I think this could be big for us.” Although the Bucs lost to Covenant Day in their following game, they are hoping the win over Latin can propel them the rest of the way. “We took one on the chin from these boys the last time, so it was a good validation for these guys that they can compete with anyone,” coach Swineheart said. “Right now, this is the highlight moment for them so far. It’s really sweet and I’m proud of them but I hope we can use this and let this carry us.”

BUCS (continued from page 1B)

looked dead in the water after Latin star Daniel Derraik scored his second goal of the game to give the Hawks what seemed like a comfortable 4-2 advantage. But that lead would not last. Junior Tyler Swineheart scored three second-half goals, including one with the ball bouncing around the box and with just a few minutes remaining. With 46 seconds left, Scheurer pocketed the game-winner past the Latin keeper, and the Bucs held on for an improbable 5-4 come-from-behind win they are hoping will spur something special. “I think right now it’s two things for us,” coach Swineheart said. “First, you obviously want to finish high in your conference, but secondly it’s a belief inside of this team that they can win every game that we play. We believe this group can compete for a state championship and it’s games like this that really validate it and let’s us know that we’re good enough and we have the confidence to do it.”

ing home-field advantage all the way, which is huge. That was bad.” While they have been on a recent slide, this Latin team seems to have it all. Offensively, the team is averaging nearly 3.5 goals per game with a very balanced attack. Daniel Derraik leads the team with 13 goals and 13 assists, but he’s had lots of help lighting up the scoreboard. Braden Panther has scored 10 times and dished out seven assists, Ben McCarter has scored eight goals and dished out five assists and Mack Carpenter has scored eight times and added eight assists. All four of those players are seniors and a big reason why the Hawks have transformed from a team that finished 12-8-1 last year and lost in the first round to one that has spent much of this season unbeaten. A big part of the recent surge in goals allowed has been an injury to McCarter that occurred in the Country Day game and the loss of centerback Andrew Cowan. Those holes in the defense have become apparent, but this team is geared for a playoff run with a much-improved defense centered around McCarter, Cowan and the goalkeeper brother tandem of senior Sam Shumate and freshman Sutton Shumate. That combination has limited opponents’ goals from 35 last season to just 19 this year. That, combined with the senior scoring options, has the Hawks wanting to get back to health and get back on the track they were riding. “We have been playing really well and the defense has been good,” Horton said. “I think guys were exhausted. We don’t sub much in the back (against Country Day). We didn’t sub any except for the injury. “We have to be better, but we have been playing well. Hopefully, we can get back to it.”

LATIN (continued from page 1B)

the Hawks who last claimed a state title for southern Mecklenburg all the way back in 2008. With Charlotte Latin cruising through opponents and finding new ways to win with their diverse offense and much-improved defense, it seemed like they could be the team to break the recent trend. The team went through a five-game stretch early in the season where they allowed just one goal. They outscored opponents 53-10 on the season through its first 14 games, all of which they won. But that came crashing to a halt when the Hawks suffered two injuries in their back line and a stunning 5-4 loss to Country Day, a middle-of-the-pack team hovering around .500. That loss stings worse after the Hawks jumped out to a 3-0 halftime lead and seemed to be in complete control. Turns out they weren’t. In the Hawks following game, they lost again, this time 4-1 to rival Providence Day. A defense that had allowed 12 goals through their 14-0 start has now allowed seven in just the second halves of the past two games and nine total. Long-time coach Lee Horton hopes it’s a wake-up call for the once-unbeaten and now reeling Latin squad that played Charlotte Christian on Oct. 10 in their final regular season win after South Charlotte Weekly’s press deadline. “I hope it is,” he said following the loss to Country Day on Oct. 3. “It’s a big thing for seeding. Even though we beat Wesleyan, the seeding is done with strength of schedule and common opponents outweighs head-tohead. They beat Country Day and now we’ve split with them so it could keep us from hav-
