Hooray for a bold and righteous Durham! Fairness and humanity trump the flow of economic benefits, in my book, and there's no reason to see them as mutually exclusive.
I'm so proud of and grateful for elected officials like Jillian Johnson, Charlie Reese and Don Moffitt for keeping their eyes on the prize. Thanks, too, to Mike Woodard for representing Durham so well in the General Assembly. So glad you're still there, Mike!
History will remember how these leaders moved Durham and North Carolina on the path to fairness for all.
Indy staff: I think you left out an important word in the paragraph on the bill just introduced at the legislature. "... as well as CREATE a statewide nondiscrimination ordinance."
"Woodard, along with two other senators, filed a bill today that would fully repeal HB 2 as well as a statewide nondiscrimination ordinance. "
Perhaps this sentence could be rewritten to explain that the statewide nondiscrimination ordinance would be enacted under this bill, not repealed?
. . .Countless churches should lose their tax-exempt status and / or be prohibited from federal programs because their church pastors and leaders (intentionally or not) refuse to provide economic opportunities to some of the very people who are being used as commodity for federal dollars. Also, (via BOGUS NONPROFITS) too many church leaders and pastors are involved in: deceptive trade practices / undisclosed identity-of-interest relationships, transactions, and collusion / federal contract procurement non-compliance / illegal nepotism / catching the poor (Psalms 10:9) / and unlawfully refusing to extend jobs to people in need instead of creating careers for their families and friends.

. . . federal programs and grants awarded to churches for addressing social poverty, and other maladies are not intended for accomplishing sealed and rigged bidding, and non-competitive businesses and careers for pastors families. Reiteratively, federal programs and funding are not to be transformed into private, family-owned church companies. Federal procurement statutes require government funding recipients to take affirmative steps to give economic opportunities to individual and small businesses.

Is Blue Coffee still trying to come back? Northgate has emerged as an option for entrepreneurs...
What a fantastic article!!!
Kudos to the staff at Roy's Kuntry Kitchen! Whenever my daughter and I are in town, we look forward to having Saturday morning breakfast at "the restaurant." It's wonderful having a staple in the community that embraces you with such hospitality. Although the salmon cakes, biscuits and fruit punch are my fav, this article has expanded my palette to consider trying the Obama drink on my next visit. Not sure if the fruit punch has a name..maybe you all could consider calling it Kasey Juice!
#26. Anne Tyler most definitely did NOT win the Nobel Prize.
Hit em where it hurts: their balls.
I'd keep an eye on the Facebook page and expect to see events there as they finish reshuffling, but if they come out with a new website, we'll update.
The article poses a question: "Is Emerald City a Nuisance to Its Lakewood Neighbors, Or Is It Just in the Way?"
The article provides a clear answer: "There have been nine assaults and 104 fights or disturbances reported, eight instances of shots being fired, and thirty-five reports about intoxicated people or drivers."
sorry i missed these events. how do I find out about future ones? Web link is dead. FB/Twitter links appear dormant.
Abe Jones has no business running for another public office. Period. He has a serious personal ethics problem and there is no way to repair this.
Karma has a way of catching up.
Luv this spot! Sending luv to the crew at Roy's from Houston.
Thank you Indy Week we truly appreciate you all, y'all come back and see us soon ya hear lol
Because the writers of Stranger Things, the Duffer Brothers, are graduates of Jordan High!
#18: Also notable -- the state's contribution (Hillsborough's, specifically) to the Bill of Rights in 1788.
#10: Jordan Staal was not a "star of the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes." His brother, Eric, was.
Well arent we using alternative facts? Just wow!! I was born and raised on the westend which is the neighboorhood that you are now calling tusk-lakewood. Please stop acting as tho the source of the westends problems are soley Emerald Cities. If im not mistaken & im not, a duke student was murdered near bivins st. A few yrs ago as well as the worker of the corner store on morehead ave as well as the young lady who was strangled in her apt. across from the ymca. Need i go on?. These crimes have occurred within the last 5-10yrs so i as a resident & citzen of Durham do not appreciate the lies in this article. The club is not responsible for how ppl act upon departure & cannot be held accountable & if they are will you enforce the riff raff that leaves the bars weaveing & bobbing in our newely redecorated & unrecognizable downtown area whose behaviors have been the same for years? Does this apply to the Saucy Crab restaurant on 15-501 that was shot up 10 minutes before the EC shooting? How about Wills bistro who had ppl shoot in the air because they were denied entry? Will they be closed as well? I will be screenshotting this & promoting it on my over 100 pages on over 100 social sites since it seems only the persons who have ulterior motives have voices here in this article, i will make sure the ppl who have the westend at heart... sees it all.
When are you going to apologize and when are you going to tell us what steps going forward you will take to make sure you do not make this mistake again?
