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. She is safe and healthy unlike her sibling that was dead… read more about I only have one word for you: Karma!
To the coaches who play their son or daughter all the time. Not because he or she is one of the best players on the team, but because he can.

I am peeved at the drivers that show a total lack of respect for our community by speeding on Birkdale Commons Parkway and in the neighborhood of Birkdale.

Davidson – a progressive, “green,” sustainable, environmentally aware community – with wealth and influence.

I understand that riding a bicycle is great exercise, but do you have to ride on the very edge of the narrow back roads here in Huntersville.

Peeved that so many people using lawnmowers willfully cut their grass so that debris and grass clippings spray all over the road and/or sidewalk.

When I walk into a frozen yogurt store, I pick up the cup, serve myself, then walk over to the cashier to pay. Am I the only one who thinks it absurd that a tip jar is sitting there?

It seems that local and state governments are using the police and courts to indirectly tax us through excessive penalties for minor infractions.
