Boo! Houses all over Cornelius are being decorated for Halloween. Jennifer Fowler of 17536 Harbor Walk Drive went all out. Send us a picture of the front of your house, and we'll run it. We're hoping for a safe and fun Halloween. Here are some safety tips for Friday:
I must share that I was in IKEA earlier this week and couldn’t believe the store already has a Christmas tree on display in their restaurant! As I write this, most of us are still working on setting up our Halloween decorations. Retail stores seem to have forgotten that we have two more holidays to get through before we can begin to think about Christmas.
And Thanksgiving is late this year on November 27th. That means we get extra time to prepare for the holiday, and this includes planning your table scape for this very special meal of thanks.

Former N.C. Rep. John Rhodes joined former North Meck Republican Women President Mary Lou Richardson in a very public protest against toll lanes Oct. 18, directly across West Catawba Avenue from Thom Tillis’ campaign offices.
Rhodes, of course, is in something of a grudge match against Tillis. Rhodes, the incumbent in the North Carolina House of Representatives back in 2006, was defeated by Tillis, who quickly rose through the ranks to become only the fifth Republican Speaker of the House.
