    INDIAN LAND - Mack Patterson manned the phones on June 3 at the new Domino's in the Commons at Doby's Bridge shopping center. That was the first day of business for the pizzeria, and, as owner, Patterson was involved in every task.

    Judging by the level of energy and excitement inside, one would never guess that Patterson had done this more than 40 times before.

    "This is my 42nd store in our franchise," Patterson said. "I see all the stores on a regular basis."

    They are spread out over Mecklenburg, Gaston and Lincoln counties.

  • Writer glad to be smiling again

    Going to a dentist for a six-month checkup is routine for people with a decent income or dental insurance. I was among that group at one time.
