The Assembly, an online news magazine, is best known for its investigative reporting on politics, business and the environment in North Carolina. This week, reporter Emily Cataneo shares an update on the increasingly-unhinged story of Charlotte, the purportedly pregnant stingray at a small aquarium in Hendersonville.

We highly recommend reading the story, which is both entertaining and informative. And The Assembly is well worth subscribing to – particularly for their regional newsletters.
