Here are the top stories in Mooresville today:
Mooresville, also known as “Race City USA” with famous residents such as NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Earnhardt Jr. (as well as many others), has a very strong Real Estate market. According to The US Sun, “As a result of this influx of cash, [brought in from high end residents] house prices in Mooresville have jumped 118 percent on average since 2012, per Realtor.com. To put that into perspective, between 2012-22, the average house prices across the nation rose 91 percent.” This is great news for the area! Be grateful we live in such a wonderful, desirable place!

Take advantage of a great opportunity to catch some Division 1 Lacrosse play. Mooresville High School will play host to a college lacrosse game between Georgia Tech and Liberty University on March 11th. Hope to see you there! (Gm4Sports via Twitter)
With Creek Week approaching there is an emphasis on local waterways. One way to help keep our waterways clean is to make sure to pick up pet waste. Pet waste, which is often left on lawns, trails, and sidewalks flows down driveways, streets, parking lots, and other surfaces, when it rains, picking up other pollutants on its way. Once that water enters storm drains, it flows into local creeks, streams, and lakes. The Mooresville Stormwater Division says because it’s not filtered or treated, it can harm animals including fish and snails and degrade water quality. Residents and visitors are encouraged to pick up after their pet(s). Carry a bag with you on walks and make sure it’s properly disposed of in the garbage or even flushed (minus the bag).
