Work is continuing on an 8-mile section of natural gas pipeline through Davidson, which eventually will help supply gas to a new gas-fired electrical plant in Wilmington. Piedmont Natural Gas began the work in October, as part of a 127-mile pipeline project.
The 30-inch pipes follow a route in Davidson that runs roughly northwest to southeast. The work – and vast areas of brown dirt – is visible where it crosses N.C. 115 north of town, on Grey and Shearers roads, at East Rocky River Road and on N.C. 73 near the Summers Walk neighborhood.

On a sunny but chilly Monday afternoon, Scott Misenheimer and his bride of 26 years, Andrea, climbed into a well-decorated “police” pedi cab and started a last lap around the brick sidewalks of town, led by bagpiper Richard Monroe.
With 30 years of policing under his belt, “Sgt. Scott” is now officially retired. Dozens of well-wishers cheered along the route and others waited at The Davidson Village Inn to greet Scott as he disembarked and made the rounds shaking hands and enjoying hugs.
Jane Ellithorpe was there to hand Scott a dozen Dunkin’ Donuts in honor of her dog, Duncan, a pooch well known to Sgt. Misenheimer. Betsey and David Stewart’s Great Dane, Blue, got a reluctant head pat from Scott, who remembered a big scare from the dog as he was checking on their Hillside home one afternoon. Ralph Quackenbush told of how Sgts. Misenheimer and Scott Searcy offered him their “chimney cobweb cleaning services” when Ralph was laid up after hip replacement. Read the full story
