The sisters are two of 63 students in Catawba Valley Community College’s cosmetology school, a program experiencing record enrollment.
“It’s because the economy has been so bad,” said instructor Joyce Thomas. “People are looking for work where they’re going to get a job in the field, and everybody’s always going to get their hair done. It’s guaranteed.”
The Carolina Panthers and the word âturnoverâ were supposed to only be synonymous with one another in the off-season.
On Saturday night, the two were connected early and often on the field. The New York Jets capitalized on five Carolina giveaways on their way to a rugged 9-3 preseason win at Bank of America Stadium.
âWeâre capable of making plays, we just need to keep working,â said Panthers starting quarterback Matt Moore, who completed 6 of 17 passes for 57 yards and one interception in one half of play.

Four passengers in the Dodge were injured in the wreck.
From the opening kick-off of the seasonâs opening game it became quickly clear that turnovers would play a big role in Maidenâs contest against North Lincoln.
In fact after Maiden fumbled the gameâs opening kick-off, it appeared the turnover battle would bounce the way of the Blue Devilsâ visiting opponent.
However, between one interception by Richard Kerekes and ensuing 44-yard return that set up a Maiden touchdown before half-time and a third quarter interception by Alex Lomax that set up another Blue Devil score, the home team was able to turn the turnover tide in their favor.
The Bandys Trojans sported a new look Friday on the plains of Plateau Road â conservative.
The Trojans were not the pass-slinging teams of the past three seasons. They lined up under center more, and they ran the ball a lot more.
âWe are going to ram the ball down opponentsâ throats every play,â wide receiver Dylan King said. âThatâs all we are going to do â just run it down their throats, run it down their throats.â
Two people got a shock this week when they tried to start their vehicles and nothing happened.
They returned to their cars and found thieves stole their car batteries.
The thefts happened on two different occasions in the parking lot of Catawba Valley Community College’s main campus.
Both incidents happened Tuesday afternoon, about four hours apart, in broad daylight.
“When the person took the battery, they did it quickly,” said Capt. Roy Brown, of the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office.
They’ve practiced drills for weeks, sweated in 90-degree weather, and now they’re ready to take the field on Friday nights this fall in crisp uniforms.
No, it’s not area football teams; it’s the marching bands.
High school band and color guard members, as well as their directors, practiced for weeks in preparation of upcoming football and marching band season.
And just like the football players who make touchdown passes look effortless, band members, too, work hard to deliver an exciting performance every Friday night.
The county tax office, which is amidst a more than two-year revaluation process, aims to mail property owners new valuation notices in mid-November.
Revaluation, which takes place every four years in Catawba County, aims to reflect accurate land values in the county.
State law requires North Carolina counties to conduct property revaluations every eight years, but counties are allowed to revalue property more frequently.
