Fires destroy two Mint Hill homes

By Michele Dotson

Separate fires rendered two families homeless within three days in the Mint Hill Area last week.

On Thursday, February 28, a home in the 6200 block of Eagle Claw Court was completely destroyed by fire that was reported by a neighbor at around 10:30 am.

“I left for work at about 7:30,” said the owner, who wished to remain anonymous. “You know, it was my normal routine. I made my coffee and went out to work.

Mint Hill Bloodhound is crowd favorite at Westminster

Nathan the Bloodhound from Mint Hill won the hearts of all the spectators at Madison Square Garden in New York City earlier this month making every- one smile at his antics in and out of the ring. Three year old Grand Champion CH Flessner’s Internation- al S’Cess, better known at home as “Baby Nathan,” won the breed and went on to be the first Bloodhound to win the Hound Group at the 138th Westminster Kennel Club show and ad- vance to Best in Show.

Nathan was clearly the fans’ favorite and they let it be known as soon as the 135 pound gentle gi- ant put his big paw on the green carpet at the Garden. Their screaming and clap- ping every time Nathan’s droopy face appeared on the jumbo screen just made him that much more animated. […]
