I am peeved at what seems to be a economic focus on city center creating minimum wage jobs and creating very few good paying manufacturing jobs in the county. These are the jobs that create marriage, home buying and families. If we could get that $500,000 a year head of economic development guy to… read more about Refocus
I am writing to please ask all drivers to be aware when making the legal U-turns that the drivers making a right on red or green have the right of way. I have my grandchildren with me in my car a lot and have almost been hit at least three times with drivers making the U-turn and not even looking… read more about It is very frightening and irresponsible
The new mail carrier needs to change his methods! He insists on sorting through the mail at each house instead of before starting his route. I am not getting my mail until almost 6 p.m. as a result. If we privatize the USPS, this would never happen. read more about Change your methods
To the Davidson students who saw fit to demonstrate recently, I don't see you demonstrating over the assassination of the two NYPD officers! Why? Not politically correct enough for you? read more about Not politically correct enough for you?
Watching the Panthers game Dec. 21, I was embarrassed by the way Cam Newton was acting. There was in injured Browns player on the field, and Cam was too busy showboating to stop and show a little compassion! I realize he was happy that they had the game wrapped up, but seriously! He needs to grow… read more about Stop the Cam show and become a team player!
To all the parents that drive their kids to Hough High cutting through Bailey Springs, either drive them all the way to campus or don't take them. The turning on Bailey Road after letting the kids out is dangerous and makes us going to work wait in longer lines unnecessarily. read more about To all the parents that drive their kids to Hough High...
I am SO peeved! What is wrong with people who do not dim their bright lights when they are approaching other cars! Even when I flash my lights to remind them, they keep them bright! Didn’t they learn that courteous response in driver’s ed or driving school? Thank you for letting me get that off my… read more about Dim the lights!
Wow, we can find $158 million in "bonus money" to buy support of local politicians for implementing tolls on Interstate 77, but we cannot find $80-130 million to simply widen the road where needed, without tolls. Let the people speak, put this issue on a referendum and tolls will be overwhelmingly… read more about Let the people speak
It makes me nuts that so many people park their cars in the bike lanes outside of Joe Gibbs Racing in the business park. There is a fundamental difference between parking lots and bike lanes. They aren't interchangeable, folks! What's worse is the police department next door doesn't seem to care.… read more about They aren't interchangeable, folks!
Now that the diverging diamond construction is finally done, how about taking down the “No Turn On Red” sign on Liverpool. read more about How about taking down the “No Turn On Red” sign on Liverpool
I'm sure the parents of the Davidson College students that disrupted Christmas in Davidson last weekend are proud to pay $45,000 per year for their ignorant, liberal kids to attend the 11th ranked liberal arts college in the USA.

Where are all the decorations in Cornelius? The quaint little Town of Davidson looks festive. We need more decorations in Cornelius to at least act like we are celebrating. read more about Needs more decorations in Cornelius
To Davidson College students who interrupted services to protest the Ferguson ruling, did any one of you actually read the grand jury and witness testimony available online? Did you read the journal entry that validates the officers’ version? No? Read first sources before you decide. Resist the… read more about Read first the testimony first
As someone who attended college during the many protests of the 1960’s, I can appreciate peaceful protests. What I struggle with is elitist and entitled students protesting an issue they have no knowledge nor education about. Research a topic before you follow some disgruntled agitator or liberal… read more about The world needs more leaders, not sheep.
I just finished reading your article on Abersham/Fisher Farms. Gary Wirth is quote as saying “this (land) isn’t suitable for baseball and athletic fields.” If the town elders can’t find room for badly needed fields for our youth on 500 acres, they aren’t looking very hard. read more about Try a little harder!
I was trying out a new pedi-cab and the service was very slow. I didn't want to say anything, as the cyclist-driver was clearly working very hard to keep us moving. When I got off (not having mentioned anything about the stroll-speed), he looked at the meager tip and scoffed that he was not the… read more about How rude!
I was cast as Judas in a nativity play recently. Since then, the actor playing Christ and all of the other apostles have been going for dinner after each rehearsal. Every time I try to come along, they rudely rebuff me, calling me a blasphemer. It is just acting! read more about It is just acting!
More often than not, I find myself being addressed by a cashier as "honey, baby, sweetie, etc." Most of the time these cashiers are barely old enough to be out of high school. Are they not being taught the basics of good manners? In my opinion, this is disrespectful. Calling customers by these… read more about Good or bad manners?
