    Inside, the walls are crowded with lots of kids’ art work, pictures of students receiving awards and inspirational quotes from people like Steve Jobs. Pennants from the teachers’ colleges hang outside every classroom door.

    First, the Gay Street basketball courts had been in need of serious repairs. The adults and children had been playing on the same concrete that was used to fill the former pool located on the site.

  • Column: Left created the culture that Trump takes part in

    This election certainly feels like a joke, but it isn’t.
    Our liberal/progressive media has created a smoke screen to obscure the real issues. The media allows people like Hillary Clinton to point their fingers at us and pretend they didn’t create and celebrate the culture that Donald Trump merely takes part in. The terrible things he said when he was a Democrat were OK then. The real issues are being ignored.

  • Column: A positive break amid the nastiness

    ◆ Lindsay Pettus – Not enough room here to cover all the great things Lindsay has done for the community. Love his work with the Katawba Valley Land Trust, which preserves our precious natural resources and allows all citizens to enjoy them.
