Requests have no effect

The lack of maintenance on the sides of the roads on narrow peninsulas without sidewalks in Cornelius gets me very angry whenever I walk my dog and a large construction truck or speeding vehicle forces me into an area overgrown with poison ivy, snakes and rats. My repeated requests to have these… read more about Requests have no effect

I'm on to you guys

I am peeved that regular citizens can't see they are being pandered to by the likes of Phillips, Tarte and Puckett. Isn't it odd that none of them stepped up on the tolls for two years ... until right before an election year? And Phillips talks about Tillis being his best friend. How's that working… read more about I'm on to you guys

One slip and ...

I am beyond peeved when I see someone driving a car with a dog in their lap! And in this case, size does not matter. One slip and a very small dog can get in the way of the foot pedals while a larger dog creates a bigger obstruction. And if they don’t care about themselves, what about the pet? Do… read more about One slip and ...

Audit needed

I have lived in six states. And the NCDOT is the worst transportation agency of the six. I strongly suspect corruption within and around this agency: How else could such a deleterious contract as the I-77 tolls, with extortion from the citizens of Mecklenburg, Iredell and Cabarrus counties, be… read more about Audit needed

It's a win-win

Since NCDOT has determined that toll lanes are the solution to the traffic problems on I-77, I would ask our representatives in Raleigh to divest NCDOT pension funds from their current investments and place them all in on bonds supporting this wonderful project. It’s a win-win! read more about It's a win-win

Please stop the madness

Huntersville please stop! Stop cutting down all the trees! Every time I turn around, big forests of trees are being cut down! This town was a beautiful farming town just 20 years ago. We are now turning into a fast food, concrete city! Please stop the madness. I'd like to see less tree cutting and… read more about Please stop the madness

Turn off for a reason

What really annoys me are those who put all in danger by using their cell phones when pumping gas. It is as dangerous as smoking near the pump. Static electricity can ignite the fumes. Signs saying “Turn off Engine, Turn off electronic devices, No smoking” are there for a reason. That reason is the… read more about Turn off for a reason

Clean up your act

I am peeved at the people in our Birkdale neighborhood that do not clean up after their pets. When you decide to own a dog, you take on the responsibility to clean up their poop. By the way, it is also law in North Carolina to pick up your dog's waste. Clean up your act! read more about Clean up your act

Just ridiculous

To the runners and bikers who use Patrick Johnston Lane, please go in single formation. Either pick a lane or use the sidewalk. I'm all for a bike and runner-friendly community, but using the middle of the road with headphones on is just ridiculous. read more about Just ridiculous

Unsightly and unhealthy

I'm sure Huntersville can afford to have an extra garbage man with the garbage truck driver so when he/she comes around to pick up the garbage, the extra guy/woman can jump off the truck and pick up what's been missed (or at least throw it back in the garbage container). It's embarrassing,… read more about Unsightly and unhealthy

Why should this one work?

I never hear it mentioned that I-77 is going to be paid only by locals. Those traveling through Carolina will not be set up to pay the toll even if they wanted to. So they will be in the non-toll lane with me, which will be crowded. Only Tillis, Bradford and other Republicans will be in the toll… read more about Why should this one work?

Are you kidding me

To the blonde lady driving a newer model black Toyota Camry, how do you sleep at night? As I was loading groceries in my car, I heard a loud crunching sound, looked up and it was you trying to parallel park in front of the Rosedale Dry Cleaner, as you pulled straight in you hit the drivers side… read more about Are you kidding me

Peeved with mail carriers

I'm peeved with the mail carriers around here. Last place I lived, the carriers walked 500-plus house neighborhoods in 90-degree heat or 10-degree cold, but here they can't be bothered to deliver your mail if they have to get out of the truck and literally throw packages to your porch from the… read more about Peeved with mail carriers

Please don't honk

Per North Carolina law, a vehicle may not turn right on a solid red arrow (NCDOT Traffic Ordinance Manual Ch4 S2). Drivers turning right onto Gilead Road from the I-77 south exit ramp – please don't honk at cars waiting for the red arrow to turn green. We are just following the law. It would be… read more about Please don't honk

Buyer beware

A customer was returning a defective product that was missing a part. She had the original packaging and her receipt for the purchase made one day ago. The clerk, as well as the owner, immediately verbally jumped on the customer. They said they never sold any defective products. They actually… read more about Buyer beware

How convenient for them

Just got back from student night at the high school with 2,600 students. The administration said they never want to hear from parents because they want kids to deal directly with teachers if they have a problem. How convenient for them. Now if my 14-year-old son has an issue with a 45-year-old… read more about How convenient for them
