    Charlotte area "ring cities"

    Improvements at the train station in Kannapolis have recently been completed. https://www.independenttribune.com/news/kannapolis-train-station-improvement-project-completed/article_c277cb60-ffd7-11e8-8e3d-079028bf7894.html

    The Bad News Report

    Very valid point!! Plus at the end of the day, Apple's decision seems to be based heavily on geography and current infrastucture. If you look at the major expansions and additions of staff.; Austin already has huge Apple presence as it is, plus I believe that Intel which is a big supplier to Apple has a large presence in the Austin area. All of the other locations are on the West Coast and probably due to the fact, that Apple's major suppliers are Chinese based. I did see Pittsburgh and NYC were listed for additions in the next 3 years. But I agree with the premature announcements of WRAL...they were blabbing prematurely.

    In essence this is just an expansion of their current operations in Austin....probably cheaper for them in the long run

    Panthers New Team HQ and Facility

    Isn't this proposal a mere shift from their current practice facilities in Spartanburg? Not sure where the team's HQs are located at now.

    NC Research Center in Kannapolis has an addition coming next year.

    Another bar/restaurant bites the dust

    I forgot that this chain is still open. I remember the one in Salisbury use to have a great breakfast buffet back in the day (mid-80's)!
