Re: “Undercover at North Carolina's Final Gathering of Trump's Army

Kenneth, you express so well the frustration most of us feel. For you to have had the courage, the self control to attend the rally speaks volumes of your fine character. It has been a ghastly time, a growing malignancy in our country. I believe that truth, honor, and substance will prevail. And then the reunification of our brothers and sisters will begin.

Re: “KKK Drops Flyers In Raleigh Neighborhood As Part of Seemingly Coordinated National Campaign

This is bizarre! Of all the years I've lived in Durham and Raleigh, I've never heard of anything so ridiculous! I work at Real Estate By Design in Durham and someone once left a flyer for a cat washing service (LOL), which I thought was crazy enough, but this takes the cake!

Re: “The Restaurant Merry-Go-Round at 403 West Rosemary Comes to a Strong Stop at Northside District

Had dinner at Northside District this past weekend and everything about our experience was excruciatingly slow. Empty drinks went unfilled. When the food finally came out, everything was pretty tasty, but why does it take 40 minutes to make a salad? Its not like the dining room was busy whatsoever.

Re: “The INDY’s Endorsements for the Chatham County Board of Commissioners

I'm going to respectfully disagree that "Howard was correct to support the zoning measure." This particular measure defies any kind of common sense and was pushed through with very little opportunity for public input until it was already essentially a done deal. I agree that some kind of county wide zoning is a good thing, but changing all unzoned areas to 1 acre residential is just plain lazy and irresponsible. Several times I asked why it was done this way. The best answer I could get is that it is for "consistency". I'm not sure why we need this kind of consistency in such a diverse county. At a minimum, shouldn't the watershed around Jordan Lake be zoned as something that prevents development? The Army Corps already forbids building much of anything on their land, so this newfound "consistency" is awfully confusing. Zoning farm land for residential use and then grandfathering the agricultural use is, in my view, a sneaky way of setting the stage for future development.

I may vote for Howard anyway, but I'm sure going to disagree with her position on this issue.
