The Catawba County Board of Commissioners has approved architectural plans for the new Sherrills Ford Branch Library.
The 10,000-sq.-ft. facility to be erected on 2.5 acres near the intersection of N.C. 150 and Sherrills Ford Road, is expected to be completed in 2014. Commissioners have set aside $2.9 million over multiple fiscal years to make it happen.
Sheriff Coy Reid announced today that the Catawba County Jail is launching a new inmate video visitation program.
A rear-end collision occurred just before 9 a.m. at the intersection of Northwest Boulevard and 7th Street in Newton. A pick-up truck struck a passenger car from behind.
The driver of the passenger car was transported to Catawba Valley Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The rainy conditions did factor into the accident.
