Deviled Legs, i've made the corrections on the story and in the slide show. thanks for letting us know!
Karlie, thanks for recognizing the amazing and talented local athletes!
I have to speak up for my rollergirl sisters and point out that, while the photography is great, your write up is cool, and my girls look sensational, both the picture caption and the CRG section of your article incorrectly identify two of my teammates. Please note that Mrs. Tina Jett, with the hot pink hair, is known as Red Mojo on the track. Miss Abbey Dethlefs is the fury known as Kelly Clocks'em.
Thanks again for the coverage!
Thanks Grayson. Look forward to hearing Polvo's new stuff when it comes out. Best regards guys.
Hey Mrs. Watkins
Recordings with Brian weren't available for us to use at the time of publication. We asked the band as it exists what they would like us to use, and they suggested some recordings. This is what we chose from that list. Thanks.
Interesting that the slide show is set to Polvo from This Eclipse, on which Eddie Watkins is the drummer. Strange choice, since he was told that he would not be asked to be part of the new, tweaked Polvo, and was replaced with Brian Quast. You should have used something Quast plays on, to fully embrace the hoopla of Polvo version 3.0
Awesome video -- for more short videos on the work of UNC SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) and the current sit-in against UNC Sweatshop apparel, visit www.youtube.com/elenainthemachine
UNC SDS is OUTSTANDING!!!! There is hope for this country. Thank you for your courage and commitment to create a better world. With you in the struggle until justice is served, Dahlia
I am from Indiana and our National Guard units have been deployed repeatedly to supply the soldiers needed for this occupation. The same Guardsmen are put in harms way over and over again.
What a waste of our youth. Kick the bums out. Elect Obama.
Love the music, love the faces, love Dan's T-shirt, amazing!!!
Sonic Perno is king
Awesome Derek. Total fun watching & I loved the winners t-shirt. Disappointed only in the beer they drank!
Jeremy, Thank you for taking the time to do the beautiful story on Steven. You truly put into words what we were feeling. The sounds, the heat, and the many different wishes running through all of our minds. Thank you for honoring us with the priviledge of meeting you and for sending our families a copy of the article and pictures. Thank you again, Vickie Wessell
I think you need to do more coverage of stories like this and in order for change to happen, this needs to be front page news or as close to the front of the paper as possible.
While I agree that his record could cast doubt on his character, as far as his infractions are concerned, people need to realize that the world inside of those facilities are very different from the outside world. First of all, most facilities don't abide by the laws of the land because they have their own laws. Second, it is survival of the fittest. What would you do if you had to fight for your life from harassment and sexual innuendos coming from not only other inmates but mainly the correction officers that work there. And yes, they threaten your life if you speak out against them or even attempt to write grievances that seem to never surface. So, tell me what do you do? I know that no one's perfect but just imagine if those young fellows involved with the Duke Lacrosse Rape case didn't have the "Dream Team" of attorneys representing them, would they have been any less innocent or more guilty? THINGS THAT MAKE YOU SAY HMMMM!!! Just stop and think about situations such as this and if we all started to question and challenge the justice system, officers of the court, and those sworn to protect and serve us, you might find that the picture painted by all these individuals aren't truly as it seems. YOU KNOW THEY CAN LIE TOO!!!
What an intruiging dance piece -- "Why Fall When You Can Walk In It" (I hope I got that right) -- by Courtney Greer and collaborator Joan Nicholas Walker. I would certainly like to see it.
No column on an offender would be complete without a reference to the conviction record and prison behaviors.
Felony record includes:
BURGLARY 1ST DEGREE (PRINCIPAL) and ROBBERY W/DANGEROUS WEAPON (PRINCIPAL)
Prison Infraction History includes:
ASSAULT INMATE W/SEX INT, DAMAGE STATE/ANOTHERS PROPERTY, PROFANE LANGUAGE, DISOBEY ORDER,
FIGHTING, UNAUTHORIZED LEAVE, THEFT OF PROPERTY, THREATEN TO HARM/INJURE STAFF, and UNAUTHORIZED LOCATION.
More information might give readers a more accurate picture of this offenders true character.
The folks at Indy don't usually print infraction histories of inmates, especially when it doesn't support their anti-law enforcement or anti-government agenda.
This is the way fashion is supposed to be presented. A true breath of fresh life from the typical spread that does no more than stir the trends that produce a world of look alikes. Fashion is more than a look, its a way of life. Well written. Great photos. Y'all ROCK!
this aricle was inovating and brought out a different view of what fashion is all about. I think the use of regular people brings to life how we can embrace our inner fashionista. Loved the entire Fasion's Futures section (article, multimedia, and models wardrobe). I think this brings a new and fresh "look" to the Independent. I will be look out for the next publication.
Thanks for putting this out there. I'm part of the marching band that's in the article. Check us out at www.myspace.com/cakalakthunder and sign up for our newsletter!
