I recently heard Cornelius Police Chief Hoyle speak at an event. He said crime rates are way down (mostly due to national trends).

I-77 toll lanes to continue even though most of the public thinks the deal stinks. I-485 extra lane to remained closed to anyone for 5 years. Sure glad I sat through construction traffic to build a completed lane that can't be used for 5 years. What's the common theme here? $$$$$$$$ and how the… read more about Totally disgusted
I just heard on “NBC Nightly News” that the day after Daylight Saving Time begins is considered the most dangerous day in the USA. I agree and wish that the time would just stay one way or the other. I would ask our representatives in Washington to do something about this, but I do not think either… read more about Could not agree on the time of day...
Just experienced the “diamond” ... old Catawba was way better. New Exit 28 Catawba – crazy! Driving north on I-77 under the “mast,” couldn't see it unless I looked really hard and I was right under it. A lot of money spent on something one can hardly see. read more about Just experienced the "diamond"
Our town leaders seem to just adding to their tax pool but the town is outgrowing its ability to serve its residents. A new development on Huntersville Concord Road, numerous units behind the library, Vermillion never stops (how many units are they squeezing into that small area on Huntersville… read more about Overwhelmed
For those who are sick of the unthoughtful litterbugs out there, take action yourself. Here is how: Take down the tag number, the date, the street where you witnessed the littering and the time. Send this information or you can call it in and those irresponsible people will receive a letter. We… read more about Take action
Anyone notice the two very tall commercial city street lights on Liverpool Parkway that fell over for no reason during the big 12 hour, 1/2" snow event last week? Hope the installers were not the same ones involved in the sailing masts on the diverging diamond. read more about Let's hope...
Peeved the town board approved a three-year tax rebate scheme or "incentive grant" for a single existing business, Forbo Siegling LLC. What objective criteria exists to weigh future incentive grant applications?

It's so annoying how rude people on cell phones are to others. They must think when they answer their phone a soundproof bubble encircles them. No matter how loud they talk, the people around them can't hear them. I was in line to return something at Kohl’s and hear someone talking loudly about… read more about How rude!

It's 9:30 p.m. Feb. 17 and the package I'm suppose to receive today via the United States Postal Service hasn't been delivered. The tracking information states there was a "deliver attempted" at 5:30 p.m. today. I think it's funny how I was casually shoveling the one inch of snow we got from my… read more about Didn't see hide nor hair...
Why the heck does the recycling get picked up every other week?!!? Everyone I have talked to agrees with me that it should be picked up every week and I always have way more recycling than I do regular garbage!!

To the a-hole who was laying on the horn at One Norman Boulevard because the traffic light showed a green arrow. Well if you knew any better, that lane is a "shared lane" for motorists going straight (which was red) or to take a right turn, the other lane is for a left turn only. Next time I will… read more about That lane is a "shared lane"
Well, just got back in town, couldn't wait to see the bridge with the shiny wires and lights. What the!!!!! You got to be kidding me. Can’t see the four wires. Yes, looks like only four of them. You can’t see them from Interstate 77 because the poles are only 15 feet tall. And the trees block it… read more about Just saying!
Why do people drive down the road, and throw out cigarette butts out the window? Like the lady in a Black Trailblazer on Wednesday morning on U.S. 21 near Sam Furr. She had all kinds of patriotic signs pasted to the rear of her car and signs of caring. It is time that we stop treating our land… read more about Stop treating our land like a garbage dump
It really upsets me when a medical office wants me to pay my deductible before I have seen the doctor or medical professional. I think I should pay for “services rendered” and not for “possible services available to be rendered.” I for one insist on paying after my visit. If that’s not agreeable to… read more about What's your opinion?
I hate the “formula” that public libraries have been using for the last few decades to determine when a book is discarded. The formula has to do with how long it has been since it’s been checked out and not if it’s worn out. So the bookshelves in the library are more than half empty and the library… read more about I hate the “formula” ...
I am disgusted that people continue to hit animals and birds while driving and do nothing about it. To the person who hit and killed the beautiful owl on Statesville Road at the intersection of Stumptown Road on Feb. 5, did it ever occur to you to stop and call someone to help? I called the… read more about The outcome might have been different
The diner has such double standards! I am hushed and rushed out if I try to use my cell phone in there, because of its policy. Then, this week, I see the diner owner's girlfriend behind the counter on her phone, bragging to someone that she can use her phone in there whenever she wants. They won’t… read more about They won’t have to worry about me being back
Recently, "in an effort to accommodate the two new restaurants coming to downtown Davidson," the Town of Davidson changed 23 parking spots, which were all-day parking, to two-hour parking (Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.).
