The gift to Mint Hill that keeps giving: How the town got the land for its current town hall

March 11, 1982 was a milestone for Mint Hill. Yes, it was 11 years to the day that Mint Hill was incorporated. But it was also the day that John McEwen and wife Scottie donated 5.5 acres to the town for its first town hall. Previously, the board had met in a barber shop, doctor’s office, and fire department.

In this week’s Mint Hill Times, read about the donation of the land. In next week’s issue, we look at why the town hall looks so modern, and why it was one of the first eco-friendly buildings in the area.

This week’s Mint Hill Times editorial calls for a practical solution to the immigration problem that is more akin to what Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch wants: Set up a program that will allow the current illegals some level of legal status, and then restructure immigration laws so that we never again have this problem. Who else is on board with this idea? In addition to Murdoch and Obama, Michael Bloomberg (and many other CEOS and Mayors), George W. Bush, Karl Rove, Trent Lott, Ken Mehlman, former chairman, Republican National Committee, and Republican strategist Michael Murphy. […]
