My pet peeve is the citizen who moves to a politically conservative state like North Carolina from a liberal state to escape high taxes and big, oppressive government that robs him of his liberties, and then votes for liberal Democrat politicians whose policies raise his taxes and rob him of his… read more about My pet peeve is...

I am confused by the decisions of the Davidson town leaders. They want to ease the flow of traffic on Main Street, the town's commercial area, and reroute it into the residential areas of Potts-Sloan-Beaty. Potts and Sloan seem too small to handle this traffic and Beaty already has enough traffic… read more about Davidson town leaders: I am confused
I am peeved over an apparent total lack of enforcement of traffic signs on West Catawba Avenue approaching the Exit 28 construction site. Signs indicate that all traffic in the left lane MUST TURN LEFT. Despite these signs having been up for awhile, most vehicles in the left lane pass up the longer… read more about Signs indicate that all traffic in the left lane MUST TURN LEFT...
What has become of the dog park at Ramsey Creek Park?Shame on the town for not keeping it manicured. Shame on dog owners for not picking up after their dogs. Of course, it's hard to find and pick a pile clean in a tall field or without baggies people have become accustomed to, but mostly shame on… read more about What has become of the dog park at Ramsey Creek Park?

Why on earth would the new Cornelius police boat be harassing boats coming in and out of Port City Club, a business that depends on part of its revenue coming in by boat? If nothing else, wait out by the no wake zone to stalk your prey and quit scaring the customers that want to take a nice boat… read more about If nothing else, wait out by the no wake zone to stalk your prey
NCDOT and Blythe could take a lot of lessons from CalTrans. Send some of these jokers out there to learn how to build roads and bridges. I watched CalTrans take down a four-lane overpass on a major freeway in one night. One night! I didn't see anyone working on Exit 28 this weekend. read more about NCDOT and Blythe could take a lot of lessons from CalTrans
After the neighbor's house burned, a solution to finding houses on this street was to change the street name. Today, on one end of Country Club Lane, the street sign says Sandy Shores Drive, but on the other end: Sandy Shore Lane. I warned Cornelius that a Sandy Shores existed in Bahia Bay!!!! Now,… read more about Now, everyone is LOST!
I do understand why the construction above the I-77 at Exit 28 is taking so long. It is because there are no people working full-time there. I have pictures of beautiful days and no one is working. At night when I travel though that bridge, I see a few workers. One is working another three or four… read more about It is going to be a hell!!!!!!!!
Looks like we are getting a toll road right or wrong. The latest studies report that traffic will increase, not decrease. Oh, and no one can even estimate the cost of the toll. That's a red flag. Along with forgetting how to build cars and appliances and outboard motors, I guess we also forgot how… read more about It seems to me that it would be much cheaper...
When NCDOT opens the second lane on Exit 28, they should make it a toll lane and charge people $9 to get to the other side of town. That way we'll always have at least one lane that never gets congested and they'll be “giving drivers a choice.” Makes about as much sense as I-77 tolls. read more about Makes about as much sense as I-77 tolls...
To the northern-accented couple by the original candy at The Fresh Market on Aug. 13 … the metal scoop is not to pour yourself a handful of candy while you browse, waiting for your wife … who is taking the top off a candy container to pick out a piece with her fingers. Wife: “I'm not going to buy… read more about Nothing entitles you to steal!
I am peeved with people that really have a need to show that they are helping with donations for this or that reason. My God! If you are able to donate ... great ... good for you and for whatever you are donating to ... but please ... there is no need for publishing as a HERO … read more about There is no need for publishing as a HERO
Anyone been to the Cornelius exit lately? They call it a "Diverging Diamond." I call it a "Diverging Disaster!!!” read more about I call it a "Diverging Disaster!!!
Why doesn’t the NCDOT or the CPD put up barriers to prevent people from cutting into the line going over the bridge? These people block cars who are trying to turn onto the highway and back up the adjacent turning lane. Let’s be sensible,put up some kind of divider! read more about Put up some kind of divider!
I love the wishing well on Catawba!I have walked or ridden by it since 1999 and am sad to see it aging and falling into disrepair. Instead of tearing it down why don't we ask the property owner if they would like some help in restoring it to its previous charm? read more about I love the wishing well on Catawba!
Why would someone blame our governor and/or state legislature for the I-77 toll road debacle, when it was our local Democrat leaders that pushed this disaster-in-waiting down our throats? Talk about an uninformed voter! Geeeesh! read more about Talk about an uninformed voter!
My peeve is that the instructions for the "Peeved" column specifically say, “up to 50 words,” and then you publish pieces that are significantly longer than that limit. Why set a limit if you use ones with as many as 200 or more words? (44 words). read more about Why set a limit?
Cleveland Spruill is the new police chief. He wants to equip the police department with Harleys.

So, the Town of Davidson doesn’t want a replica of Exit 30 for the downtown area. Yet those same people approved a development to cram 16 homes on a small tract of land on a quiet but personable street. In their words, “If you want privacy, this development is not for you.” No consideration for the… read more about Thanks Davidson!
No one at the NCDOT has a brain. They can't widen U.S. 21 or N.C. 115? So they are selling our roads and America to a Spanish company. No American company would want this business?
