Doors open at 5:30 pm for tonight’s CMS Board meeting

The closing of schools is a hot topic in Mecklenburg County, but mostly for those who live on the West side of the county where schools aren’t nearly as crowded as the ‘burbs.

4AA Football seedings released, but no Independence

It’s almost not right to see the 4AA playoff seedings without Independence. But thanks to school reassignment in 2010, Indy was left with an undersized and inexperienced team that fought hard, but continually came up short. Against Butler Friday night, the Patriots suffered their worst loss in more than 10 years, a 61-6 drubbing.

Watch for the preview of Butler’s first round match up in this week’s Mint Hill Times.

We pledge to bring much needed transparency to the legislative branch of state government as well as the necessary fiscal responsibility in managing our state’s impending budget crisis.”

Representatives Stam and Thom Tillis had previously provided the following list of Republican priorities for the legislative session to begin in January. […]
