    Some call Susan Sparks a modern day dynamo. She was a lawyer who became a comedian, and then a minister. This weekend, she graced the stage in Charlotte, performing before a crowd of nearly two thousand at the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.  Her story will astound you.

Here is the scoop from our GOOGLE Hangout.  

They're calling it the shock heard around the state. It's a talker: the arrest and resignation of Mayor Patrick Cannon. Joining us to discuss: Jeremiah Chapman who is a community organizer in Charlotte, an MBA student and a former JCSU student. Also joining us is Lillian Mayer, a student and Charlotte native. 

Both Chapman and Mayer say they were surprised to hear the news about Patrick Cannons arrest Wednesday. 

"It was something I didn't expect," Chapman said. He was at work when he heard the news. "I just met Patrick Cannon recently, and I was shocked to hear the news." 

Mayer was also at work when she got the news.

"I was definitely surprised. I was at work and I saw it first on social media, and I had to go to my news sources and validate it. I was surprised."

 The vast majority of people seem surprised by the recent events, including those in the political sphere. Some students today said they believe it was entrapment.  Chapman believes it definitely could be entrapment since federal agents have been trailing him since 2010.  Mayer agrees.

"Just to hear the large amounts of money they lured him with, it's suspicious," she said.
