New Year's Eve Plans - 12/29/09 10:09 AM
Looking for New Year's Eve Entertainment nearby? Try comedian Jeff Dunham's show at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte. The show starts at 7:00 p.m. and will wrap up in plenty of time for you to stop in a nearby restaurant or bar to catch the midnight countdown! If you really want to make a night of it, book a room at Charlotte's new Ritz Carlton (there were still rooms available when I looked online) or one of many other great hotels in the uptown area. Happy 2010! (5 comments)

Short sales can result in higher prices than foreclosures and can be less damaging to local neighborhoods but are often extremely challenging to complete. Under the plan, borrowers will receive $1,500 from the government if they sell their homes (3 comments)
