My father has worked for years In the Golf Course business. He teaches Golf Course Operations at Florida Gateway College, therefore he is well educated in pesticides and their effects. I myself have gained a pretty proficient knowledge on the subject from growing up around it for years, and working in the landscaping business myself. The fact is, Sevin is a pesticide that is meant to kill insects and invertebrates. It is eliminated fairly quickly out of the system of vertebrates, BUT it large quantities or concentrated, it can make anything really sick. It is easily breathed in, and animals like dogs will lick it off themselves. It is a poor treatment for fleas because of this reason. And, it kills honey bees in massive numbers. The best resolution for fleas is an IGR, an insect growth regulator. It prevents juvenile fleas from reaching sexual maturity, and laying the next generation of eggs. It is much safer, and less harmful for beneficial bugs. You can also use a spreader to treat larger ares with Over and Out, which every hardware store sells. It will kill the fleas almost immediately.
Angel, thank you for what you are doing here. You are letting our Lord love through you in a very difficult way...
I to am a Christian who is transgender. I am a female soul clothed in a male form. For me, God *asked* me to give up my right to a sex change because my wife depends on my remaining (at least nominally) male. Both Christ and my wife give me the grace to live as an openly transgendered person, expressing myself on the feminine side of androgynous.
Like you, God has called me to love others as a transgendered person. Part of that love is directed to other trans people who need to know that God loves them as they are, feels the anguish that can be part of a serious sex / gender misalignment, and wants to help. Another part of that love is for my Christian brothers and sisters to help them grow in their willingness and ability to love others (believers and not) who are very different from them.
I want others to see Jesus in me, His Spirit shining in a 'Brett' coloured hue as an authentic person, a clear vessel through which His love flows and good fruit are produced.
Angel, please think of me in prayer!

As I read this article, I have flashbacks to the days when I was a student in one of the first English classes taught by Mr. Eddie Davis in Weldon City Schools.As a teacher, he knew he needed more than a textbook for students who attened one of the poorest school districts in the state. He took a chance with us, by going before the School Board requesting permission to take us on educational field trips outside the state of North Carolina to expose us to the arts. Words can not describe the impact the teaching of Eddie Davis had on my life as a teacher, parent and Educator for over thirty-three years. I will always remember him as my favorite teacher at Weldon High School!
lovethyneighbor, the following link is Best of the Triangle winners in the restaurant category from the past five years. You can sort it by cuisine, county, etc. Enjoy!
I can't seem to find the actual list of best restaurants in the Triangle (as opposed to articles about the party celebrating the list, etc.). Can someone post the link here? I want to know where to eat!
Awesome article, awesome person congrats
"Ground water is an incredibly valuable resource. And there aren't a lot of people speaking up for it" - Bill Homan of Duke University
According to Holman's statement above, I was wondering if CWFNC and other Citizen Award-nominated participants used the power of social media in their campaigns to promote awareness related to their causes.
I know the statement did not come from you directly, however, maybe you could expand that part of the topic by studying how the influence of social media is helpful in promoting awareness to the public about certain issues going on in their communities. The lack of social media exposure may be a factor behind the statement since it is easier for the public to be exposed to regional or national issues than local.
Myself, I am an avid social media explorer and often reply on Twitter for news. I thought I'd share my thoughts regarding your article. Thank you for taking the time to read my message.
I've researched and written about the Eugenics movement, even a very distant relative's involvement in its origin (Paul Brandon Barringer at UVA).
It is a horrible chapter in our history that should have been stopped before it started. But it attests to the power of propaganda - the same kind that had so many believing for so long that those of African descent were less human than others.
I believe it is also important that we recognize more modern forms of these atrocities, now, and not wait for decades to make necessary reforms or reparations.
I believe our state's "mental health" practices and laws serve as a more subtle continuation of the old Eugenics program, and I know there are safer and more compassionate alternatives, like Finland's Open Dialogue program, that the state should be implementing.
There is plenty of evidence that the drugs forced on those branded with the more politically correct labels used today cause infertility and hormone imbalances, as well as diabetes and even death. Forced drugging and incarceration in prison-like psychiatric hospitals (like Cherry, which once did sterilizations) is just another example of violation of human rights.
The petition linked below elaborates on the issue and is available now for signatures for those who wish to end eugenics for good.
Please share it and consider this issue.
Eddie was the impetus for many of us who became involved in efforts to improve education for the children of North Carolina. He is truly an inspiration--even today!! One day I saw Eddie walking the halls of The Ethelyn R. Strong School of Social Work at Norfolk State. I stopped him and learned that he has family in Virginia. That afternoon, I shared with my students the achievements of a truly great man who is modelling the values of social work!
Here is our website for our easy method for making tempeh at home.
We produced Betsy's Tempeh in Mich. for 9 1/2 years and developed a new user friendly tempeh that our customers loved.
I have to agree completely. That the Duke-State and UNC-Wake rivalries have been diminished since conference membership hit double digits has been an absolute travesty. A "pod" system makes perfect sense. This state made the ACC and anyone with respect for history has to recognize that.
Jubala Village Coffee on Falls of Neuse in North Raleigh, hands down. They do fresh pour-overs, siphon brewing, Aeropress, Chemex and amazing shots. No old nasty stale coffee in urns here, it's all done fresh to order, and well sourced from CounterCulture. Highly recommend.
I have four yorkies and two days ago I put sevin dust in the yard to kill the fleas and now two of my dogs have been having vomiting and diarrhea. Since they don't go outside unless we are present and have had nothing else new in their diet or the environment nor have they been anywhere to catch something contagious I wonder if some dogs are sensitive to sevin dust and others are not. For years I have used sevin dust on my cats with no ill affect, but I won't be using sevin dust anymore just in case. I also use frontline but since I live in the deep south of Alabama (the flea capital of the world) we are constantly battling fleas. I will have to find something else that is safer than sevin dust. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
Don't forget about the wonderful Patel brothers--especially since opening their shiny new location on chapel hill rd in Cary
Good list. An addition I would suggest is Around the World Market, with two locations in Durham and Raleigh. This is where I go for all my Indo/Pak groceries. Awesome selection, fresh prodcuts from high turnover, and very good prices.
