  Pet Feature ~ Meet Bear and Bella Today I received an email from Melissa, a local lady that read one of my blog posts. As most people who subscribe to my blogs know I blog a lot about localism in the Lake Norman and Charlotte areas, about living green, and about pets. I am a firm believer that pets have an innocent way of enhancing our life’s if given a chance. Melissa had read my, ‘Operation Noah’s Ark’ post which was about the rescue of hundreds of animals in an animal hording case. In fact this post has created more emails and calls than any other that I have written thus far; emails and calls asking who to contact to adopt these animals. For the past month I have wanted to have a pet of the week or month that needs to be adopted, in hopes of being a link in assisting pets get a se...

  Where’s the GAS? I have to honestly say I have never seen anything like it before… we are literally running out of GAS! Passing gas station after gas station and the pumps are dry. The easiest way to tell if a gas station has gas is by the lines of cars waiting to get to the pump. So essentially we have gone from shopping around for the best price to just paying any price to have it.This situation started a few days after Hurricane Ike hit the United States. We have been told that a fuel pipeline that supplies much of the southeast was shut down during the storm and the gas is flowing back to Charlotte at the rate of four miles an hour.Industry experts are predicting that the problem should be resolved in about a week. I can honestly say that experiencing this brings new meaning to sh...

  What’s Hangar Skate Park? Denver, North Carolina has something new / something different / something good and that something is Hangar Skate Park! What’s that? Well it is the brain-child of 36 year-old student pastor Chris Sigmon (aka Siggy) of the 7X Youth Group at Denver Baptist Church here in Denver. It’s a Skate Park that reaches out to the young people to help clear up misconceptions about the kids who ride boards. It was created to offer a positive place where kids can skate and belong.Tell me more . . . the park opened on June 21, at the former R-Anell Homes property (that Denver Baptist Church purchased about a year ago) the concept is jumping ramps on skateboards or BMX bikes then breaking for Bible study. Currently the skate park is outside and the ramps and benches are cove...
