What was the size of the crowd for this rally?
So glad to see the Council taking a look at this. Schewel is exactly right. Young white people smoke marijuana frequently without risking their futures. There's no reason people of color (or anyone) should be arrested for possessing or using small amounts of a drug which is less dangerous than alcohol.
Similar to Cedar Ridge High School teacher Amanda Harder’s situation, Massey Hill Classical High School (Fayetteville) teacher Lee Francis was suspended for ten days without pay after students complained about him putting an American flag on the floor and stepping on it… which he as doing in a lecture/demonstration about free speech guaranteed to U.S. citizens by the First Amendment.
“Some of [Trump’s campaign aides] say a pro-fact-checking stance is really an anti-Trump stance.”
I… wait… so they admit… what the ?!?!?!
I think that this sequel is a good movie to watch. It is frightening and has a lot of scenes that make you jump. I haven't seen the first one but after watching this, I think I should have watched it and it will be as good as this one.
such low key, warm, psychedelic cinematography (and Naomi Watts). beautiful film.

David you are an intelligent and articulate individual; that is a given as an individual who makes their living by the written word. Be that as it may I am somewhat saddened that you have not provided a comparative analysis between Sue & Price. You may invariably end up in the same place, but their is a story to be told here. The question is are you, in the truest spirit of the Indy, willing to take that step down the path less traveled to tell it? She has an amazing story - give the woman her due.
The Cheech and Chong gif used along with this article reinforces outdated stereotypes about cannabis users. I would hope that a progressive newspaper like the Indy would recognize that this sort of imagery isn't helping the cause. Let's try to catch up to 2016 and if you don't know what I mean then maybe you should take a trip to Denver.
Humm, let's see BCC ridership down after GoTriangle can't afford to go it alone and at Duke's direction drops Durham Station connection? Gee, I wonder why?
And while it is laudable that GoTriangle and the Durham City council have recently discovered the importance of NCCU, it is amazing that they have just now discovered that NCCU was missing from the original DOLRT plan (despite years of letters from public). The Final Environmental Impact Study (FEIS) was submitted to the federal government and now GoTriangle is projecting that NCCU may be the highest station ridership in Durham? What does that say about the efficacy of the DOLRT planning? Surely we as taxpayers deserve better!
Having submitted the FEIS to the Federal government and failed to secure the anticipated 25% state funding, GoTriangle is now recognizing NCCU as a viable destination while projecting the second highest station ridership? This after all of the extensive studies culminating in the FEIS, and they just ‘woke up’ to this realization now that they have failed to secure state funding?
With the NCGA reiterating the earlier 10% state funding cap (and requiring DOLRT project be re-evaluated in 2 years with other competing state requests in the NC state transportation budget), GoTriangle is desperately trying to perpetuate DOLRT fantasy by shifting objectives yet again. This despite the failure to secure Federal or state funding.
Meantime, GoTriangle bureaucracy continues, consuming our hard-earned tax monies, studying and restudying the same information, desperately hoping for a different answer (and inflated ridership) to perpetuate this ill-conceived albatross of a project called DOLRT without addressing local residents concerns. DOLRT will serve less than 2% of our current population!
And within 72 hours of GoTriangle’s press release, our elected Durham officials unanimously approve the expansion of a $1.6 BILLION project with only cursory public comment.
Stop this madness. Stop this runaway train. We need a viable transit plan. Where is Plan B?
Xtristos, automatically endorsing a candidate because she's a "female immigrant" isn't what a fine progressive journalist would do.
Wow - Liberal journalism at it's finest! Such objectivity, non-partisan, peer-reviewed factual statements. The one I find the most titillating is how Sue Googl gave herself a surname that is ironically similar to a F500 company. Just her sheer ability to make such a bold prediction makes her hands down the best candidate for the job! Forget the hardships she had to endure growing up in an oppressed society devoid of the very freedoms the fine people of the Liberal persuasion hold in such disdain. It amazes me how such a fine "progressive" journalist such as yourself would support a "good ole southern white boy" over a female immigrant - kind of goes against everything preached by the rainbow warriors.
@D M their rational is "Fuck the poor, this multibillion-dollar train is for wealthy UNC/Duke students and professors only"
It's all one giant scam so that Durham taxpayers can pay for a privileged class of individuals to have an alternative method of transportation that also shows how "Progressive" our city has become.
Isn't it interesting how Duke and UNC-CH aren't subsidizing a majority of this project despite the DO-LRT being built specifically for them?
They cut the MOST USED STOP? In favor of adding lightly-used Duke stops?
What was the rationale given for cutting out Durham Station?
Sue Googe was endorsed by "Indy Week"! Thank you Indy Week! http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/us-congress-fourth-district-we-endorse-sue-googe-in-the-republican-primary/Content?oid=5036737 As a Sue Googe Supporter I look forward to receiving Indy Week's Emails.
Seriously, this article represents exactly what is wrong when candidates who use #Voter #Oppresion not #Liberty to choose who represents #NC01 & #NC04. For the readers, please connect on the link given to Sue Googe's issues; common sense planning for District 4. I believe Pastor Powell Dew can certainly hold his own in a discussion with any voters in Durham County area. The writer alludes to fact these candidates are pawns. Caring & Knowledgeable Candidates for supporting their constituents? Agree 100%. And #SueGooge #PowellDew are doing an excellent job meeting their constituents. #Vote #November8 #Education #PersonalLiberty #Jobs #Growth #FightCorruption ( David Price, you're District map is outdated on your website!)
Logos? Really? What can improve with "representatives" like David Price, who have been in Congress for 30 years already? At this point the more proper term for David Price is ruler. Sue Googe is trying to actually represent her constituents.
Thom Tillis actually created that orange monster.
When Uber starts in markets, they pay well to get drivers to sign up. In my market I made plenty. Then they cut the rate and increased their percentage take. The money dried up. I got another job. But the drivers who continue to do this I'm concerned do not earn enough to take care of their cars. They let things go to long like brakes and mechanical needs. They operate them for 60 hours or more per week to make rent or mortgage or whatever they need to pay for in life. Then the cars go unchecked by city inspectors. It's just not safe. I won't use the service any longer. I know how stressed out these drivers and their cars are.
