I love hearing the stories, such as this one. Danville is my home and I have heard so much about C.B., Carl Hubbard, Rodney Townes ,Chelsey Lewis, G.B. Knight , Larry Jones, and others. So when you talk about heros, these are true heroes. When I finally got the chance to meet him, I was so amazed because of his journey down the road that opened up opportunities for a young men like me to succeed. Thank you my friend.
The puzzle I have in my 2/19/14 Indy is "A Walk in the Woods" by Chris King, not "Egged On". Can you post the solution for it please, thanks!
I think the point that Peter makes about the diversity of a neighborhood is right on. In my experience as a broker, the strongest neighborhoods, with the most appeal, are the ones with a wide array of design options. I dare say that many of the homes that were originally built in Oakwood would be built in this style or something similar if they were built in this era.
A lot of this pollution is coming off of toxic laden farm and forestland... from land applied poisonous sewage sludge.... to learn more...
Duke Energy's revenues totaled $24.6 billion for 2013, up from $19.6 billion in 2012 on the backs of the consumers..... to pay for new toxic nuclear power.... and now the consumer will pay for their criminal activities of poisoning a drinking water source with the help of their snuggle buddy, NCDENR??

This is "business as usual"..... No surprises here.... The environment is in tatters, public health is dismal.... all placed at the feet of the corrupt DENR and their political bed partners....

Awesome story. I never knew him but Mr. Percy was my great great uncle and I have read so much about him.
I met CB at Duke and followed him to Wash U., he was and continues to be a great guy! He is extremely intelligent and caring!
Duke was a very difficult journey for any Black student in those days, but we survived via God's grace and hard work!
Is there a reason why this puzzle will not download in the larger PDF?
I own a house in Oakwood. But, currently reside in DC. Cherry and Gordon received all of the proper approvals. Now, when the house is nearly 80% complete the approvers have changed their mind? That is outrageous. What is the desired outcome here? That these folks walk away from this and have it's remnants end up in a landfill? It seems incredibly cruel and not at all the spirit of the neighborhood I knew.
Is it fair to nitpick at the supporting actors in this play? The story is structured to highlight the devious cunning of Henry II and Eleanor, with the others intentionally weaker so that they can be manipulated by the stronger main characters. Any actor should appear not as strong or less cunning next to Ira David Wood III and Lynda Clark, otherwise the play would be unbalanced.
After conversation with major polluters, the McCrory (aka Pope) government reduced environmental protection in exchange for hefty political contributions. The environmental protection people then pronounced polluters as "customers" who were always right.
This is a great story! I attended Wash U with CB. He was a great help in my one area of weakness -- quantitative classes. He was smart, unassuming, personable. I knew he went to Duke and played ball there. Didn't know he was their first. He is a great guy. I would have no doctorate and academic career were it not for him.
Thanks for a nice article. It took me back in time, and I would add a few to his list of notable hotel bars, if I could. I traveled and lived abroad for years. Hotel bars were where I always went first because, as a woman, I felt safer there than local pubs whose character was unknown. I went to hotel bars for many of the same reasons in the article, too: for their cache, the legends surrounding them, the ambience of the hotel itself. For example, even when I lived in Monte Carlo and worked in a private club, I still went for drinks at the Hotel de Paris, because of it's elegance and what that felt like wrapped around me. A hotel, in the very old days of travel, was the center of town. From it, you could get your bearings, find the best restaurants, learn what the locals did. That is no longer as true, but, although I don't drink any more, when I travel, I still often choose to eat a meal or watch a game in a hotel bar, for many of the those reasons.
When you have members of the city council using the government as their own personal HOA, you're bound to have others conclude that they can do the same.
It would have been interesting to have pictures of 515 Euclid attached to this article. Ms Wiesner lives in a house that's 500sq/ft larger than the one proposed with the same number of stories. And as for scale, the house was clearly build to the zoning limits of the lot... encroaching not only the side neighbors but the street itself. Yes, the look vaguely matches the neighbors, but at the same time, it's an obvious teardown that doesn't "really" match the look nor feel of the original neighbors. Every single point in Wiesner's quote could be applied to her own house. If she doesn't believe it, perhaps she should take in the view of the big green wall from her neighbor's front porch.
My point is... where's the line? In my view, this house is no less out of place than what's already been built.
It appears the "deck is stacked" against North Carolinians. Governor McCrory and six others will protect Duke Energy as former employees and/or friends of the company. The one saving grace is the FEDS are now on the case, and will investigate the coal ash spill.
Get ready to drink up, governor!
To chappa hillian: In both of your comments to this site (one here and one for another article), you mention that it should be 47th. However, 48th is correct - DC is included, thus we are 48th out of 51, which does leave three slots below us. If you click the link to view the lists (always near the end of the stat documents), you will see the 51 "states" and that DC is included. I agree with your overall sentiment, so I wanted to let you know about the numbering for any future posts.
From five year of volunteering and being fully involved with the V21 community this article is sadly accurate. There are some really wonderful, solid people who go hear. But this place encourages silence- among who? People who aren't male, people who aren't heterosexual, and people who aren't white. What happens when people are encouraged to be silent by a trusted religious authority figure? Are people selectively silent when they're told not to speak? Rarely. The silence permeates to issues of abuse. Witnessing hurt individuals reach out to this "church" after being slandered (or worse) for their sexual orientation, gender, or race and watching the church dishonor and placate them in favor of preserving the machismo false Jesus was enough to get me to leave. There was hardly one blatant 'ism' or act that outed this church. Perhaps this explains the veiled theology. If you stay on the fringes you can enjoy the music and messages, the Sunday performance where God isn't always invited to attend the services. But stay away from the belly of this beast if you don't want to get burned. Tyler, the fact that it's getting worse isn't a reflection of a worldly attack against your ministry. People are speaking up because they're hurt.
Good point Mark -- I should draw a distinction between the artist who suddenly and misguidedly decides he can write (remember Todd McFarlane's 90s Spider-Man?) and the creator who is talented at both, like Lemire.
I hope you enjoy Trillium!
Microphones get knocked over and broken at shows all the time - I'd bet even your favorite Dave Matthews cover band has broken a few microphones, not to mention spilled beer and water on the crowd. Nothing was thrown at the sound engineer - I was standing directly in front of him. Frankly, he was set up way too close to the stage, and yet when there was a problem with the microphone in the middle of a song, he didn't even go up to fix it so they could finish, which is exactly what any good sound engineer would have done. The bathroom, nor any other part of the venue, were in no way shape or form "trashed" - the non-staining stage make up was quickly and easily cleaned up, requiring no extra effort beyond normal cleaning after a show. If this venue truly gave their all to support the music scene as you said, they would have known what to expect when booking bands in that genre, who put on performances like that at other venues all the time, with no complaints from the owners about the fact that they brought that many people out to their place of business on a Sunday night.
