"I am really disgusted at the Mooresville Soup Kitchen at allowing the number of free-loaders use their facility.  If you have ever driven by the kitchen and noticed the nice autos lined up and down the street,you know what I mean.  These people do not need the free hand outs received there.…

In the post-Thanksgiving period, there seem to be three priorities for food: dieting, using leftovers and planning what you serve for holiday get-togethers. Let’s leave the “dieting” ideas for January, OK? Then let’s focus on the other two: a couple of things that help you use up leftovers a…

Thank you, Ann and Wil from Cornelius for calling to speed up my plan to publish my sister’s recipe for holiday fruitcakes! Apparently, Wil is the only person in his family that likes fruitcake and his son sends him the holiday “store bought” fruitcake which, as we all know, is like a brick …

In 1989 we had just moved into our new house in Charlotte. At 3 in the morning our phone rang, and it was my brother-in-law telling us to go downstairs and find a safe place because the eye of the hurricane was over Charlotte. This was Hurricane Hugo.

In the fishing world, a brush pile is a fish attractor that is deployed on the lake bottom by individuals looking to make catching fish easier. For simplification purposes, I use the term “brush pile” to denote a structure made of natural cellulose-based materials, such as trees, bamboo, etc.

You just never know where you will pick up great ideas for improving your diet. I’ve been housebound for several weeks with three torn lateral collateral ligaments and needed a lot of assistance.

Attention flower people, gardeners, etc....toss the old song, 'Spring Will Be a Little Late This Year' out!  I've never seen so many flowers and trees blooming so early.  What a welcome sight!  Spring has sprung, albeit early!  Welcome another old tune, 'Spring Is Here,' so enjoy!

In response to person upset about joggers passing his house and his dog chases them and he then has to chase the dog. Solution for you: “joggers” have the right, your dog does not….tie the dog up, fence the dog in a yard or keep your dog in the house!!!!

For someone looking to stretch the budget or interested in just switching pizza night for something different, try this! It was our family’s favorite Friday night dinner. It’s a substitute for mac and cheese or other easy meals, and it’s really cheap to make. It’s not going to help your New …

For safety reasons on narrow streets the Town posted No Parking signs in our subdivision. However police will not ticket scofflaws even when they park the wrong way under the no parking signs or block stop signs. Why?  Police once said why should they when State gets the money.

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share my Mother's recipe for Better Than Sex cake. To round out a meal that starts with Rumaki (those delectable bacon-wrapped pineapple, water chestnuts soaked in soy sauce and brown sugar or stuffed mushrooms wrapped), pe…

Cintra is literally, shoving a toll road down our throats with all this dust. Where is the safety enforcement by NCDOT on I-77?

The State of NC could save tons of money by doing away with speed limit signs as well as stop signs and stop lights. Why you ask? Because no one seems to heed them anyway.  If a light is turning yellow as one heads under it and 3-4 cars behind them come on through, what is the use? And no on…

Thank you for your article spelling out all the forms of plastic that can be recycled at Harris Teeter. I've been recycling plastic shopping bags there for a decade, yet never knew they accepted so many more forms of plastic too. I'm so glad to know they can be repurposed too.

Shout out to the gentleman who hoisted my new microwave out of the cart and into my van at Lowe’s Saturday, unasked. My little family moved to Mooresville in August, and we have been repeatedly impressed with the demonstrated kindness here.

Before we start with new things, how about a discussion about that Lemon Sorbet recipe? I’ve had readers ask, “Was that a misprint to have 2 cups of lemons? I’ve never gotten that much juice for two to three lemons in my life!” Right you are! It should have had maybe seven to eight lemons li…

Regarding incorporating Denver, Trish Patrick implied that Lincoln County can’t, or won’t, manage the population and sub-division housing growth in Denver. Why doesn’t this grassroots group focus its resources and time on “fixing” Lincoln County instead of proposing another layer of governme…

I was meeting a friend for lunch, and while I was waiting for her to arrive, Tracy Hawkins, who worked at the restaurant, and I began talking. I asked her if there was a moment in her life she would never forget, and she gave me the following information:

The first impoundment on the Catawba-Wateree River system, in descending order from the headwaters, is Lake James. Wikipedia says the reservoir is named after James Buchanan Duke, the tobacco tycoon and benefactor/namesake of Duke University.

There are some truly nice people out there and my wife and I would sincerely like to thank the couple who sat next to us at the Epic Chophouse on Saturday January 14th.. They heard that it was our 49th wedding anniversary and without any mention, directly to us, went ahead and paid for our d…

As I look both back and ahead, I can’t help but shake my head at things I have submitted to this cathartic platform. Here, we go on about traffic, parking, etc., while the “world” is seemingly spinning out of control. I am peeved at myself, for having such a small mind, and not considering t…

I admire fly fishermen, but when I encounter a “water swatter” locally I often wonder, “Why is that guy or gal making this harder than it has to be?” I imagine I’m like other anglers in that my reluctance to embrace fly fishing starts with how hard it looks and how much work it is. There’s t…

Mobile Phones; I accept the reality of their near-necessity these days however, if you are driving they create a hazard. If you are a parent, they disconnect you from your responsibilities as a parent. I shake my head as I encounter people in public who have their heads buried deep in the re…
