None charged in battery thefts

August 20, 2010

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.

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.

County continues property revaluation process

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.

Rick Sain, Catawba County Schools facilities management director, said the staff and visitor parking lot is complete and the driveway for parents to drop off students is finished. However, a new road that connects Arndt and to Sulphur Springs Road is still under construction.
