The mall might be stalled, but Mint Hill still has a lot to celebrate.

In this week’s Mint Hill Times:

  • Adam Houston reports Bain Elementary will get a completely new building by 2010; this, along with the new high school means Mint Hill will have two new schools in two years.
  • Tim Long reports Discover Mint Hill is close to a reality. The event, scheduled the Saturday before Mint Hill Madness, will show off Mint Hill’s best cultural institutions. And there’s lots (and we mean lots) of prizes they are giving away.
  • Adam Houston reports on the Chamber’s preparation for Mint Hill Madness: “We’re up to our armpits in alligators,” Madness man Jack Bryan said.
  • Tim Long reports coach Mike Newsome liked what he saw in Butler’s victory over North Meck last week: “The defense was dominant,” Newsome said.
  • Adam Houston reports Mint Hill Arts will recognize their first year in the Grace building by publishing a book.
