I am disgusted that people continue to hit animals and birds while driving and do nothing about it. To the person who hit and killed the beautiful owl on Statesville Road at the intersection of Stumptown Road on Feb. 5, did it ever occur to you to stop and call someone to help? I called the… read more about The outcome might have been different
The diner has such double standards! I am hushed and rushed out if I try to use my cell phone in there, because of its policy. Then, this week, I see the diner owner's girlfriend behind the counter on her phone, bragging to someone that she can use her phone in there whenever she wants. They won’t… read more about They won’t have to worry about me being back
Recently, "in an effort to accommodate the two new restaurants coming to downtown Davidson," the Town of Davidson changed 23 parking spots, which were all-day parking, to two-hour parking (Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.). Many employees of the town's businesses used these spaces to park during the… read more about This move, to me, makes no sense
Any of you "Brits" out there know where to get a nice English crumpet in the Lake Norman area? Fresh Market has had two different brands in the last five years. They are Canadian-made, but I'm thinking they may have taken something out of the recipe! read more about Any of you "Brits" out there?
Peeved that so-called "planners" like Bill Coxe readily admit projections made by their predecessors in the 1950s and 1990s were wrong, but current "planners" have all the information they need to get things right this time. Birkdale seems like a pretty busy place and yet people gather there rather… read more about Get things right this time
To the young fella who works at the bakery, we don’t care if you eat all day and never gain a pound. We don’t care if we gain weight. read more about To the young fella who works at the bakery, we don’t care
To the man who was “screaming” bad words from his car (white color large SUV) passing on the Jetton Road in front of Rite Aid Pharmacy on Jan 20 around 2:50 p.m., I have to say, must be such a coward person! Just “man up” and let the person who you are mad with see your face. It is easy to say bad… read more about Solve your problem as a REAL MAN
To the residents of Birkdale that want a new traffic light on 73, you already have one on Sam Furr Road. Try paying attention when you drive and you won't rear-end someone and hurt yourself. The last thing we need are more traffic lights in this area. read more about The last thing we need are more traffic lights in this area
Why should the general driving public pay for the “beautification” of Exit 28 in Cornelius? If the powers that be in Cornelius feel a need to “beautify” this area, let them pay for it and not someone like me who doesn’t live or shop there. How anyone could think a vertical pole with wires… read more about At least put an American flag on it
Have you ever driven on the cut-through street in the Northcross shopping by Target? It's Knockando Lane in front of Rack Room Shoes, Game Stop, The Bagel Bin and UPS Store. Parking on both sides, barely room to squeeze through. Reduce parking to one side and make real traffic lanes. read more about Barely room to squeeze through
To the individual putting on makeup while driving a car, thanks for endangering the lives of other (much smarter) motorists. Crossing over the double yellow lines was an especially nice bonus – then turning into Hopewell High School. I pray you aren't a teacher! read more about I pray you aren't a teacher!
Trash everywhere!!!!! Why is there trash on every single road in Huntersville? I'm amazed that people litter like this and more amazed that nobody will remove it. Huntersville blames NCDOT and NCDOT says it's not their job. Very embarrassing to explain trash to a company visiting from out of town. read more about Trash everywhere...
Well here we go again, a multimillion-dollar payoff to a sports empire, namely NASCAR. I'm sick of the city acting as a clearing house for transferring tax money to billionaires and millionaires. It's too easy for these payoffs to cover up something unholy. read more about Well here we go again
This is for the peeved driver who has grandchildren in the car a lot and believes she has the right of way when turning right on red. While it is legal to turn right on red after stopping, if you have a red light or stop sign you must always yield to any other traffic in the intersection. That… read more about Ask the Huntersville police like I did
Why do people think glitter on things adds to the festivities? Glitter on cards, gifts, presents, etc should be outlawed, especially at Christmas. It makes a mess and gets all over the place. Months later, you still find little sparkles on the floor, in the rug, on clothes, even on some faces. read more about Glitter, glitter everywhere
One subject I have not read a lot about is the change in the number of HOV lane occupants on Interstate 77 going from two to three. Why aren't more people angry about this? I'm sure peeved about it! My wife and I will now drive in the free lanes. We will not pay to drive in the HOV lane. read more about We will not pay to drive in the HOV lane
To our friends and neighbors navigating a poorly planned, overused Catawba Avenue, please be a little considerate when you see someone trying to enter from one of the side roads like Nance, Silver Quay or Magnolia Estates. We know you’re aggravated. We just want to go to work. Thanks! read more about We just want to go to work
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
