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 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
It is unsettling to me and am very peeved about people that use the new greenways in Huntersville without any respect for others on the greenway. Dogs being walked without leashes, motorized vehicles such as motorcycles and golf carts driving through while others are trying to ride bicycles and… read more about It would just seem like common courtesy
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 ...
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
Healthy Huntersville – sounds great, but in order to be a truly healthy Huntersville, we need sidewalks! It is a shame I live about one mile from multiple grocery stores and there is no way to walk there safely. Plus a walkable town is a plus nowadays. People looking to move to a new town look for… read more about Build it and they will walk
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
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
I had a deer run directly into my car, it was writhing on the side of the road, I was pulled over with my front end smoking, crying and unsure of what to do. Someone in a white sedan was right behind me, saw the entire thing and just drove on. Then all but one person exited without a second… read more about So for everyone else, shame on you
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
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
Column after column, protests, letters, litigation ... whoa ... what the heck! It is plain to see that carrots dangled: e.g., bonuses for communities ... mayors and commissioners were on board until the real truth came out!! Now there is a lot of backpedaling. What this all boils down to is big… read more about Get with the times, Raleigh!!!!
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
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
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?
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 that buried in the proposed Huntersville budget is $6 million for glorified walking trails known as greenways. This substantial sum could be used to improve local roads, service bond debt or simply remain with taxpayers. Instead, it's being spent to win the votes of a small minority of… read more about Peeved at how money is being spent
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
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
Took my mother and family (party of six) for Mother's Day brunch with reservations made two weeks in advance. After waiting 40 minutes past our reservation time, we were finally seated. The check included an automatic 25 percent gratuity charge for less-than-stellar service. Guess that was the… read more about They are X’ed off my restaurant list
To the 'sportsmen' that were spotlight fishing/spearing Friday night, what were you thinking! Your multiple mega-watt spotlights, generator and the outboard motor along with your conversation is something I don't need in my backyard at midnight. read more about What were you thinking
After nearly three years of delays and construction, we end up with, what looks like, a tribute to steel galvanized pipe for the Roosevelt Park walking bridge along Griffith Street. Yuck. read more about After nearly three years of delays and construction ...
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
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
