As you ride on Highway 150 East towards Mooresville, you might notice some changes starting to take place on an old barn just before you get to the Marshall Steam Plant. A project of the Lake Norman Folk Art Festival, one of the founders of the festival, Robert Oren Eades will paint 4 x 8 sheets of plywood on the barn to promote the festival. After helping to get the festival started, Eades has continued to work with the festival and serves on the executive committee for the festival. This will be the fourth annual event and this year may be its best year yet. The barn project is made possible thanks to a grant that the Hickory Museum of Art received to “paint” the historic barn. Although the sheets of plywood will not be attached to the old barn, the project will announce Sherrills Fo...

From the aerial point of view of an osprey cruising one of Lake Norman's many coves for a possible nesting spot, the torn-up earth near Mooresville's Exit 31 looks far from hospitable. Acres of exposed red clay are dotted with pieces of massive earth-moving equipment, and concrete and steel structures have punched up from the dirt like skeletal fingers uncovered in an archeological dig. Inhospitable, indeed. For an osprey. But to Steve Welly, it looks like the beginnings of mixed-used heaven on earth — Langtree at the Lake. "We've been developing property for more than 35 years and, frankly, felt this was one of the best sites we've seen," says Welly, president of Ohio-based RLWest Properties, the majority owner of Langtree.   But the path to this point — with vertical construction unde...

Officials from San Bernardino County and two of its cities have formed a local agency to consider the plan. Securities industry representatives have been quick to register their displeasure and say it will only make loans harder to get. Lake Norman, Huntersville, Mooresville, Davidson, Charlotte and more. Discussion of the idea is taking place in one of the epicenters of the housing crisis, a working-class region east of Los Angeles where housing prices have plummeted.

Let's go.          When considering a physician for a specific issue like this, it’s also a good idea to consider the particular specialty of the doctor.  Unless your allergist has training specifically in the areas of environmental health and imm...
