women with hairy arm pits!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Common Sense, on one hand I respect your answer to the question, as you have answered the original posters question. But I am just curious as to why you refer to black people as "African-Amer ican, and you refer to white people as "whites" . Lets be politically correct and refer to "whites" as Caucasian American or European American...or just plain old whites and blacks.  (Jun 28, 2009 | post #13)

Fired deputy: Daugherty administration is racist

I dont have a dog in this fight about the Sheriff but then again do you think a fired employee is going to have nice things to say about their former employer?  (Jun 14, 2009 | post #7)

Is Denver a boring dull place?

Basically, people do not come to Denver for entertainment. Lake Norman is the only reason people would come here for fun. There are a few bars though, if that is your idea for fun. The other thing would be Camp Meeting every August which is off of Camp Ground Road from Hwy 16. Growth in Denver has slowed dramatically over the past year.  (Jan 18, 2009 | post #8)

valley hills mall

I think Hickory has way too much investment is VHM to allow it to fail. Even though it is a private entity, I think VHM closing would be devastating to the city. Hickory is the place people go to shop from all over, Hickory in many ways is the only place that people go from Caldwell, Burke, Alexander, Catawba, Lincoln, etc... VHM is the center of Hickory retail, and everything is built around it. I just cant see it going away.  (Jan 18, 2009 | post #9)

Is Denver a boring dull place?

Denver is mainly residential. If you think Denver is boring now, you should have seen it 10 years ago. We have gotten a lot more businesses built here in the last 3-5 years. Most of these businesses are located off of hwy 73 near the hwy 16 intersection. It will be interesting to see how they manage during the recession. I have seen two separate brand new shopping strip malls that have yet to get a single tenant. Before the new businesses were built, most people traveled to Huntersville or Mooresville for just about everything. Denver is not incorporated. Locals have tried for years to incorporate the area, but have been unsuccesful so far. All services are county provided. Lincoln county, is still mostly rural. The only incorporated city in the county is Lincolnton, which is in central Lincoln county. Most of the growth is located in the eastern part of Lincoln, known as Denver. This is also where most of the population lives as well. once you venture west past East Lincoln HS, it becomes farms. Lake Norman is basically what has kept the growth coming and is the major "attraction " during the summer months. Eastern Lincoln county has seen a flood of newcomers in the past 5 years or so, many from up north. Most landed jobs in Charlotte and wanted to live near the lake.  (Jan 14, 2009 | post #5)

Advice on moving to Hickory, NC

forward looking, Hickory is a city of 40,000 residents. A medium sized city by NC standards. The area has steady unemployment (who doesnt these days). There is still growth going on in the city with new stores opening up next year. The city is very Southern and you will hear Southern accents abound unlike Asheville or Charlotte that have more transplants than natives. The city experiences all four seasons and is located in the NC foothills. The local college is Lenoir-Rhyne University and I have heard nothing but positives about there. There is also CVCC (Catawba Valley Community College) The High School to avoid is Hickory HS. Plenty of shopping and eating places. Old style downtown area. Check out the local website and also the information on city-data.  (Jan 7, 2009 | post #79)

Operation DRIFT: Street Racing Bust In High Point

I am glad the police and SHP are cracking down. Next weekend should be alot quieter in High Point since the racers will probably be too paranoid to race. Hickory has an issue with cruising and racing as well. The Hickory police have done a good job cracking down and I hope Hickory can get a similar Operation DRIFT as well.  (Nov 24, 2008 | post #27)

New stores and restaurants coming to Hickory

The Charlotte Observer had an article about the news Lowes in Hickory a week or so ago. I know they said it was going to be on 127 near 13th and 14th Av. I cant locate the article anymore. But I am guessing construction should begin soon. I didnt know that Macys was coming.  (Nov 6, 2008 | post #20)

New stores and restaurants coming to Hickory

A new Lowes Grocery store is coming to the area on Hwy 127, near 14th Ave NE. Not sure about the anchors, but it will have other stores attached.  (Nov 5, 2008 | post #17)

Hickory, NC officials agree to respect constitutional rig...

Street "preachers " need to stop and think, "is yelling and screaming at people who do not believe with me actually helping the situation?" It is my opinion, as a Christian, that shouting down at people or telling people that they are going to hell is no way to witness for the Lord and it angers people, hence it turns people away from your message instead of engaging them.  (Oct 14, 2008 | post #27)

Why is there not an effort to clean up South Center Street?

The city can do all it can to clean it up, make it look pretty, etc...but in the end it is the people themselves that live there and do not respect themselves or their community. You are correct that there is alot of crime concentrated in that area. It is mostly pubilc housing which in and of itself breeds crime. According to the Hickory Police website, an entire police district is centered solely around the S. Center Street area. I do not have much hope for that area and would avoid going through there if you can. It is located close to downtown Hickory. Charlotte had similar situations near its uptown and you could view large areas of public housing right near its skyline. Charlotte tore it all down, and rebuilt pricy condos in its place and relocated those who lived in public housing to other areas in the city. That is probably the only option for S Center St, other than that, it will stay the way it is.  (Oct 3, 2008 | post #2)

New Stores Coming to Hickory

I think the condos are still a go, not sure what the hold up is on that. I do know these projects are separate though.  (Sep 25, 2008 | post #148)
