Every week, we, the lowly taxpaying peons of Huntersville, march our containers of trash to the curb, only to have them skipped over by the collection trucks.

I know people love their dogs but why do they feel the need to bring them on their boats and then let them run loose on the islands on the lake? These dogs run around scaring my children.

Why is there no safe way for a pedestrian to walk from Cornelius to Davidson on N.C. 115 under the railroad? We are new to the area and figure there has to be a back story to this. Going under the railroad bridge is not safe. There isn't proper room between you and a speeding car. There's always… read more about Is there a safe way to access south Davidson on foot via 115?

I would like to “thank” whoever put out the obvious litter of kittens in the Ramah Church Road area. The kitten I saved is quite humorous, although it’s another mouth to feed in my already stretched budget, but it was the right thing to do.
