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.

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
A hit and run occurred April 28 in the Hough student parking lot after school. Your child’s silver Nissan is damaged. Three of the four security cameras are not working, but the administration insists safety is its utmost concern. A $200 reward is offered to anyone with information. read more about Safety is its utmost concern?
I get peeved at people who complain about the police. Being a police officer in this country is the hardest job on the planet. You have 15 or 20 million people in the country from God knows where to do God knows what. Our U.S. Congress has made it a big payday for some people to resist arrest and… read more about The hardest job on the planet
To the peeved resident complaining about "special" parking spots for families at a local elementary school, you should ask the staff first about why the spots are labeled before making any assumptions. At my elementary school, there are two designated spots for two different families. These spots… read more about Don't make assumptions
I've enjoyed reading the peeved column. Now that the mayor is critical of it, I am totally devastated and traumatized. I get amused at some who complain about insignificant matters. And don’t see why anyone would care about what Jill Swain thinks about the feature. read more about Enjoys Peeved
I went to a reading of Edgar Allan Poe's poems last week. I heard a practiced, if uneven, reading of "The Raven" and then the organizer announced that, due to a mix-up, the second presenter would also be reciting "The Raven." Why would they force us all to listen to his long poem twice? Organize… read more about Organize your event!
So, Jill Swain, who is supposed to be representing ALL of the residents in Huntersville is peeved. And so she writes about the fact that she is peeved that the Huntersville Herald has a peeved column for residents of the area to sound off. So is it that only Jill Swain gets to be peeved and have it… read more about Peeved helps us sound off
Thanks to whoever made the decision to move the sign and barriers at the corner of Jetton and John Connor that were obstructing the view of oncoming traffic. You prevented many accidents from occurring especially with the early morning sunlight. It had become a dangerous intersection. read more about Thanks!
Really?? I see at a local elementary school parking spaces with personal family names reserved for “special” moms who are volunteering to the school. Really?? Aren’t those parking spots a public place??? Why reserved for special families??? Who is checking this out making sure it is legal??? read more about Favoritism?
When the DDI was created, concern for human life was left out of how to improve the bridge. While sitting on the bridge in typical backed up traffic on the narrow two lane side (westbound) two emergency vehicles with sounds blasting were attempting to go west bound across the bridge.
