funny how you assume her no vote is simply because she doesn't want you to have insurance. That's moronic conclusion to reach. the handout train just keeps on rolling.
My question...what kind of cheese do I have to use? Is any queso fresco sufficient? How about Mozz...asked the gringo?
Also, what's the name/recipe of the tomatoe dipping thing? Does it have to be spicy?
Major props to the Independent for their World of Bluegrass coverage. These videos are fantastic and capture the spirit of the event. Please continue this type of video coverage for music events.
Wrong, Kontras is from Chicago, but based out of Hickory, NC. So technically it's Hickory, NC's Kontras Quartet. Otherwise, great write up.
I came in from Winston-Salem on Saturday for this. On the street I heard nothing but praise for the event. A couple of folks told me how big a deal this was for the city of Raleigh. This was the first exposure that a lot of people have ever had to Bluegrass outside of an Andy Griffith rerun. The IBMA crowd was impressed with yhe hospitality shown as well as the turnout. I think this was an incredible sucess for Bluegrass, for Raleigh, and for NC. Can't wait until next year.
Thanks for the careful reading and the comment, Evan. This has been corrected.
Wyatt Rice is Tony's younger brother, not his son......please correct this....thank you.
Bluegrass Musician and life long Tony Rice fan.
Terrible sound on the radio(XM) except for Del McCoury.Sound man couln't keep up with performers.Didn't hear a drum set,but may have been one.If not,ALLRIGHT!!!!! Rice had tears in my eyes not only for the effort,but the content.One man who has never forgotten where he came from.
this pad is great! AND so are leon and dorothy
Ms. Jimmy Carter still going strong and sounding good. Alright Blind Boys of Alabama.
Your comment seems like a bit of a potshot, to be frank. It's hard to be aware of unknown artists showing in unknown locations. If you know of some exhibition, artist, or visual phenomenon that you think needs writing and reading about, why not immediately send me an enthusiastic note about it instead of posting snarky comments on a review?
I write about the arts because I get ripped from engagement with work on its own terms. Like, for instance, the unknown high school artists I wrote about in this piece in June about the Creative Mentorship Program that the Durham Art Guild and Student U put together: http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/durham-ar…
Technological changeovers may not be immediately evident in this sentence, which could have just as easily been hand-set verbatim in lead type, but then it wouldn’t be the same sentence, would it? Messages don’t mean independently from their media.
I see what you mean!
Kind of like how this exhibition would have received zero coverage or consideration by you if it had been presented by an unknown high-schooler in an unknown, but otherwise identical space, but because it was done by a famous art professional and is in a gallery, you give it 1,000 words!
> Sure, be reasonable. But if that’s all you are, “the other side will just roll right over you.”
Yes, and this principle was enunciated long ago by Jerome K. Jerome:
"In this world it is necessary to adopt the principle pursued by the plaintiff in an action for damages, and to demand ten times more than you are ready to accept. If you can feel satisfied with a hundred, begin by insisting on a thousand; if you start by suggesting a hundred you will only get ten."
- Jerome K. Jerome
How long until Limbaugh calls her a "slut"?
So all I have to do is troll a governor (attention whore at the behest of poor parenting) to become famous for being a self seeking drama queen?
Glow stick thrower here. The Suuns thanked us after the show, hung out with us, and gave us priority tickets to their show in Boston. What bands want and what the audience think bands want are two different things in Raleigh and will converge as the festival matures.
Fantastic! What a great moment for Ari, Ninth Street Bakery, and Durham!!
I suspect that Gov. Pope and Mr. Skvarla, et.al, would like nothing more than to have ALL of the employees of DENR simply get up and leave. Whacking the environment has become great sport as well as profit to them as they deregulate and sell off our heritage to their corporate masters.
They will be positively giddy next year when the fracking boom begins across the state.
Best wishes to "Susan" and thank you for your service to our families for so many years.

Dear Friends, I recommend PEER. ~ Beverly Kerr, BREDL.org
Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER):
PEER is ready and willing to come to the aid of employees in need. With PEERs guidance, resources and strategic support, peers benefit by participating in a full-fledged campaign that can focus on a particular issue, incident or agency. The purpose of a PEER campaign is to help employees document and expose wrongdoing by public agencies.
A peer is eligible for free media training and assistance. Staff members are on hand to help you use our press lists, compose press releases and set up press conferences and other events. PEER members also have access to our publishing house, which we call the vanity press. In short, if you draft a white paper or other report, PEER edits it, prints it, distributes it and acts as press agent for the project.
Another very effective means to alert the public to problems plaguing an agency is to have PEER conduct a confidential survey of employees. This involves having interested employees actually write the questions. PEER provides postage and distributes the questionnaire to all staff. Because responses are anonymous, employees can answer truthfully without fear of reprisal.
Free campaign planning is another benefit to becoming a peer. Bring PEER to your state or office for brown bag presentations, private meetings, conferences, and so on. PEER can also set up conference calls for employees to meet over the phone when it is difficult or impossible to safely gather outside of the office.
In addition to all of these services, members can use PEERs web page to post information about their agency, display forbidden documents or network with allies. The potential for activity is limited only by your energy, creativity and imagination.
Being a peer means making a difference. If you are reading this and are not a member please join. If you are a member, please sign up a colleague. And lets start working for a better tomorrow inside your agency.
