"As human beings we have the ability to think, move and communicate in a heightened way. We can cooperate, understand, reconcile and love. ... So in 2017, don't forget the to-do list, but remember to write a to-be list too."

"Experts have previously linked such characteristics to the emergence of humanlike hands and coordination, and to shifts in human cognition. But the fact that monkeys produced rocks with these same traits demands a different evolutionary explanation. And if modern-day monkeys modify rocks in this way it is possible that extinct monkeys and apes did too, leaving behind archaeological assemblages of their own. Archaeologists thus need to refine the criteria they use to identify stone tools intentionally produced by members of the human family, Proffitt and his colleagues argue."

Basically, other animals do it too and it may have been skewing our claims of ancient human activity. #evolution  
The artifacts bear a striking resemblance to objects produced by our ancestors

"Nature delights us if we simply pause and notice, and this bird makes us do that -- makes us pause and makes us notice."

The bird that's the color of snow and the size of a thumb was first spotted at the arboretum in May and since then visitor numbers have gone up 40 percent.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation is holding an open house and public hearing on Project U-4714: E. John Street /Old Monroe Road improvements on Tuesday, October 11, 2016. The open house will run from 4;00-6:30 pm and the public hearing will be held at 7:00 pm at the Stallings United Methodist Church located at 1115 Stallings Road, Stallings, NC 28104.

This road project will have significant impact to the towns of Matthews and Stallings. As a citizen of Matthews, I highly recommend that my neighbors attend and inquire. While traffic flow through this corridor is certainly important, the long view for a safe, livable and walkable downtown with character is paramount. Communities first.
