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.

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. No one on the… read more about Hopefully the delay did not cost a life
Looked forward to my two young grandsons visiting on April 18. Thought it would be nice to take them to a park and took a ride to Holbrook Park. What a shame! On the playground, there had to be almost 1,000 inchworms, lots of spiderwebs, and mud and dirt on all the slides. Sad the town let it get… read more about What a shame!
What peeves me is Jill Swain – namely that she admittedly deters visitors from reading your paper because of the “Peeved” column. Who cares what Jill Swain thinks about your business – or what our neighbors have to gripe about? Given how The Herald promotes local events, business and news, why in… read more about Who cares
I know it's getting to be bicycling season, and a shout out to those who are trying to keep fit, but please, I implore you, stay on the side of the road. No one wants an accident. I get it, share the road, but you pack riders, who ride two or three abreast and think you own the road, are just… read more about A shout out
Can someone tell me why The Peninsula, Jetton Road gets to be repaved when Bethel Church Road has not been paved since the early 1970s????? Bethel Church Road is terrible. It will shake your vehicle apart, literally. The joke is, “Test drive a new car on Bethel Church Road. If it holds up, buy… read more about This is insane
A DDI with crazy masts that sail nothing, now a roundabout? This place is starting to look like a Joie Chitwood Thrill Show. Maybe we could attract some kind of Grand Prix with all these whacky roads. Flaming cars flying out of giant tubes sounds fun. read more about Now a roundabout?
Davidson town leaders are “solving” one problem by reducing the traffic on the town’s main commercial street and creating another for the residents of Potts, Sloan and Beaty streets. Great planning!! read more about Solving one problem, creating others...
Peeved at many residents in the three Wynfield communities. The four-way stop at Torrence and Wynfield Creek Parkway requires that you actually stop! If you must blow through this stop sign since you’re so important, at least slow down to the posted speed limit. Also, four-way stops do not allow… read more about Stop sign means STOP!
