Re: “Modern Oakwood house sees its day in court

I have photographs of a Frank Lloyd Wright house on a street off East Ave.. I believe it is the Boylton house. There is no other house quite like it. There it is.
Whenever it was that people came to feel they owned the neighborhood view, past, present, and future reflects some sort of reason for me to not be a part of it.
I'm involved in advancing factory modular buildings because without using that technique you can't keep up with demand.
Fair housing requires a surplus and I'd rather have a crane set things together in a day, than two or three months or a year of construction traffic and noise.

Re: “Modern Oakwood house sees its day in court

I wonder how these lawyer fees affect Gail? I imagine they could pay for some REALLY nice blinds to shut out that "oddball" structure.

Re: “Helicopters, assault vehicles and more: The federal arsenal in the hands of local law enforcement

This sort of armament is revolting and troubling. Is it safe to say we're living in a police state? What can be done to reverse policy like this?

Re: “N.C. protestors refuse deal from courts

The best defense against the big power companies is to clean house in the 2016 elections...the GOP Governor and his cronies have to go.

Re: “Durham development: What's being built where and who can afford it?

This is a Triangle-wide problem now. As bad as it is in Durham, it's worse in Raleigh. Rents are skyrocketing there so fast that soon everyone who makes less than 6 figures are going to be pushed out of the city and into the far-flung reaches of Wake (or worse, Johnston) counties. I have lived in Raleigh for a very long time and I love my city but I about about to the point I can no longer live there.

Good for her. It would be nice to see a trial schedule published, so that interested parties might bear witness.

It's always good to hear from you, Delta Rae Fan No. 1. We'll be writing about FarmAid.

Re: “Durham development: What's being built where and who can afford it?

Irv919 is right. This is a completely manufactured problem. A non-story. These downtown units being built are mid to upper market and were not built to meet HUD's (or Indy's) definition of affordable housing.

Stay tuned for next week's feature by Indy's cutting edge research team: "The Average Citizen Cannot Afford To Eat at Vin Rouge Every Night", and "Bus Drivers Do Not Make Enough to Buy a Lexus"

Re: “Is Farm Aid coming to Durham in 2014? Maybe

Amazing that there are no update regarding Farm Aid coming to Raleigh. Biggest music news for the Triangle in a long, long time and Indy Week is silent on this.

How does Indy Week see themselves as relevant?

Re: “Tillis defunds the Democrats

Lets all hope that Hagen defeats this turd(Tillis)....Democrats must rise again ... the current dictators who are in power now will destroy the state of NC..they are constantly trying to destroy our democratic process....all the while selling us out to big oil and Duke power.

Re: “Durham development: What's being built where and who can afford it?

News flash for all the college-educated, creative class types moving to Durham and driving housing prices up and displacing working class, working poor and retirees out of their old neighborhoods. If you don't want to be asshats like the Caktus folks who painted over our downtown mural of the Eno River, then start putting your money where your mouth is (as well as putting pressure on elected officials) to support the only proven way to mitigate gentrification--the Durham Community Land Trust. Land Trust housing stays affordable for generations and allows neighborhoods to retain their diverse character. So write a check to the Land Trust or to a pro-Land Trust official or candidate or you could be a Caktus person. Frank Hyman

Re: “Live: Nickel Creek carries on in Cary

Nickel Creek's setlist was a great mix of new and old, vocal and instrumental. I was really hoping for a classic crazy interlude during "The Fox," but the mini jam was good too. They did a superb job with the new material from The Dotted Line, but "Hayloft" is pretty terrible as well as being a completely annoying earworm. As much as I was walking in the clouds last night with having the trio back after 7 years, I woke up this morning with that terrible song in my head.

Also, nice work threading "mutual admiration society" in there. Can we have a 10-year anniversary tour from MAS?

Re: “Durham development: What's being built where and who can afford it?

'Plenty of affordable housing"? REALLY? I will be retiring soon and my income will drop to around 28k/yr. I am SO NOT interested in living in substandard housing in substandard neighborhoods. Really not happy about maybe spending my twilight years fending off miscreants coming through the window. Part of the problem is that is is against NC to have set asides so that a small portion of new construction can be set aside for seniors and others with lower incomes. I've been looking and in fact there are VERY few affordable apartments available in Durham.

Re: “NC health insurance subsidies could go away

The bridge may get a little wobbly in NC when the next series of elections start in 2016...I think many Republicans may be in trouble..Because we have lots of swing voters..The GOP got in power because a lot of democrats voted for them..But they didn't campaign on the issues they are implementing so we ended up just swapping crooks...so which crooks better serve us in the end. eh

Re: “Zack Schilawski of Carolina RailHawks to enter law school, possibly ending his pro soccer playing career

I think I speak for Zack's family, we've not missed a game (middle/high schools,Wake Forest U, a game in
New England and EVERY RailHawks' game) . He's a Grandson every family would love to have.

Z. loves what he's doing, is very bright and asses every play in practice and on the field. We understand and share his dilema. We also know that he'll do well, whatever his decision. GO Zack! Gramma Jean
