Only the idiots at NCDOT would consider a "superstreet"into the already doomed DDI on Catawba. Maybe they can throw in a couple traffic circles in as well and then take eight years to complete it. God help us! On a side note, I like how Catawba has now become a speed trap with two patrol cars… read more about Only the idiots at NCDOT would consider a "superstreet"

The swim beach just sounds like another project with no forethought or planning, since 2008 no less. Is this supposed to be some kind of boon to the area? Who is going to wait in their hot stuffy car for a parking spot. I feel for the folks on Nantz. Maybe they could hire a Spanish company to put… read more about Another project without forethought or planning
For us on the east side of I-77 we say thanks to those neighbors helping us merge onto Catawba Avenue and not blocking intersections. Did people actually see the signs much less read and obey them? This "DDI" is just the tip of the iceberg as where traffic is going from here. Boycott Exit 28,… read more about Boycott Exit 28, when it’s finished!
I was at recess the other day when I stepped in a bunch of dog poo. I've stepped in worse, but still ... EWWWW!I was not happy to step in a bunch of poo. I think that the person walking their dog should pick up their dog's poo, especially on the school playground! read more about EWWWW!
There are two town board members, Jeff Neely and Ron Julian, who are acting like 2-year-olds. And one of them even resorted to offensive language from the podium at a recent meeting. In town government, things should be settled by votes and not juvenile name-calling, making faces and off-color… read more about It's time to grow up
If you really want to express your displeasure with the construction on Exit 28, avoid using the exit once construction is complete.

Every day, my neighbor’s children drive off from their parents’ house and honk their car horns. Sometimes they go around the block so that they can repeat the honking. I wish they would exercise consideration for neighbors and reserve the use of car horns for their original intention, preventing… read more about Honk elsewhere, please
To the gals that work out at Gold's Gym. Yes, your breast implants are beautiful and we can all see them. Now you went and supersized them. How about covering your new real estate up?

Seriously, is there an idiot out there who believed that Exit 28 would be completed on time? We should know by now that any completion dates for public projects, especially for DOT projects, are meant to appease the public. They aren't going to happen! read more about They aren't going to happen!
Articles touting higher high school graduation rates need to factor the following: Required credits lowered from 32 to 24 and if test scores too low, you take over. Most articles on this are disingenuous to say the least since these changes aren't mentioned. Dumbing down continues in the schools! read more about Dumbing down continues in the schools
What propaganda about recent graduation rates at local high schools. No wonder! They ran me off? MA in English ... gave my job to a reading teacher for ninth grade. After I failed 12 rich lazy seniors, the principal passed them anyway. My job teaching honors/advanced seniors went to uncertified… read more about Rates are up, but diplomas are free
I appreciate the long article on discrimination in west Davidson and the space it gave to Mr. Brice's careful detailing of the actual record of town services there. The Davidson administration surely realizes that some in west Davidson will always have a grievance, will remain unappeased, will… read more about West Davidson will always have a grievance
Peeved that Mecklenburg County Commissioners, including our own Karen Bentley, are trying to ban tobacco from all county property in an effort to save lives while ignoring other heart disease-linked behaviors like obesity and unhealthy diets. Why not ban all unhealthy behaviors from county property? read more about Why not ban all unhealthy behaviors from county property?
I appreciate that bicyclists love their sport and respect their right to share the roads. In our area, the rural roads are often narrow, two lanes with winding curves and hills, making it impossible for automobiles to safely pass a group of bicycle riders and leaving cars trailing behind the pack… read more about Bicycle riders - extend the courtesy
Have they poured enough cement for the Diverging Diamond at Exit 28? I have traveled to every state in the great USA. You do not see cement medians! Also, I think the NCDOT missed the geometry class on hypotenuses. Straightest line is the most direct route. Even a marathon runner will clip a mm off… read more about Only in Cornelius!!
We all have places to go and things to do. Yes, this diamond interchange at Exit 28 is a royal pain. For now anyway. People, quit blocking the bloomin’ intersections. It's the law first and foremost. Emergency vehicles can't get through (I witnessed that one). Others can't turn or go straight if… read more about We all have places to go and things to do
Is anyone else fed up with medical software? Why is it that every time you make an appointment with a doctor office they have to ask your age? Why couldn’t they use the last four digits of your social? Very hard to tell your birth date when you are at work or in public. That is extremely personal… read more about Must have been a man that wrote that software
I now have a better understanding of the events in Ferguson, after dealing with an illegal parking problem with the Davidson Police Department.

Bridge over I-77 at Exit 28. It easy for those responsible for the construction to blame this mess on traffic on the “budget.” Of course, this hell of traffic is directly related to lack of good planning!!!

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
