Re: “Raleigh neighbors prevail over student housing complex near N.C. State

I agree with Kay Crowder's assessment. If NCSU is capping undergrad growth, then housing for graduate students and young professional fresh out of school---and perhaps even university staff members---makes by far more sense.

Re: “Today, Moral Monday is back in Raleigh

The same old, tired, failed ideas from the left. I say to the MM protesters-- KEEP IT UP! It reminds us of the failure that awaits if the left gets back in control.

Re: “Durham Police mangle traffic stop

This judge made a horrible ruling. The judge was very unprofessional and just ignored current law. The officer had probable cause when he smelled the order of marijuana, so he can take as long as he wants now on this stop. The consent was just the icing on the cake. The consent wasn't vague either. The driver told officer green, when confronted about the odor of marijuana, "you can search". The judge is the one who mangled officer green's case and hard work. The judge just put another drug smuggler back on the street. Of course someone from the aclu would comment on in correct reporting and facts. Of course this story was not reported correctly. Typical of this current climate.

"Koch Brothers' Aspen Institute?" Since when, or is there another Aspen Institute?

Re: “What does Gov. Pat McCrory have to hide in his travel records?

If I'm reading the second table correctly, the costs for some of those out of state trips were covered or partially covered by private funds, including the GOP Governors events.

I'd like to hear about that trip to Augusta, though.

Re: “Don’t let Durham Police headquarters screw up East Main Street

Why does the DPD need a new home, anyway? They've got a nice big building up on Chapel Hill Street, why move out and rip up historic structures for something new and hideous?? Obviously the city and county leaders , as well as architects, have different ideas and NO common communication when it comes to public spaces. Tear down, build up; tear down, flatten out, build up, change the whole atmosphere of historic Durham. At this rate, there will be NOTHING left of the Durham that long-time inhabitants have come to know and love, in their own ways. Please TAKE OVER and IMPROVE that 19-acre vacant lot on Fayetteville street!! don't destroy the memories and locations of some of the best small businesses in Durham.

Re: “Coal ash dump pits Chatham County versus Duke Energy

I just wrote to NCDENR asking them to look into a new technology called Chelok that can be used to safely and economically remove metals from the ash, on site. Unfortunately Duke Energy is not giving the company Periodic Products any real consideration. I don't understand why since it would probably end up being cheaper and of course better for the environment to clean the ash on site vs. hauling toxic ash around the State! Not to mention the metals recovered could be used for other industries.
Here is the link below for papers done by the company showing lead and copper can be removed from the ash as well as waste from the mining industry: http://www.periodicproducts.com/company/technical-information

Re: “What does Gov. Pat McCrory have to hide in his travel records?

Are those political party (GOP) events normally fair game for publicly funded travel? I would think that those partisan events should be covered by the party, the campaigns, or the individual attendee.

Re: “What does Gov. Pat McCrory have to hide in his travel records?

Seems our governor went to the Augusta Masters on the public dole and got away with it.

Information "Not Provided" is unacceptable.

Re: “Don’t let Durham Police headquarters screw up East Main Street

Alice, there are no renderings as of yet. The city is simply asking for thoughts on what the public thinks would be important for the new headquarters. Here's a link with more information that is hyper linked in the story above. http://durhamnc.gov/ich/op/gs/Pages/Durham…

Re: “What does Gov. Pat McCrory have to hide in his travel records?

Looks benign to me. If had gotten the request for this information, you'd still be waiting. And waiting. And waiting. And then you'd get a bill for the estimated cost of dissemination, to be paid in advance of filling the request.

But while we are at it, how does this compare to Dumplin's travels and costs?

Re: “Don’t let Durham Police headquarters screw up East Main Street

Perhaps I am missing it in the article, your call to action is to review the new design of the building and comment but yet, there is no link or information where someone can actually view the plans and renderings surely provided by the architect . Can you provide the information or, at least, instructions on how someone would be able to find it?

Re: “Justin Williams is a gifted singer-songwriter whose personal problems get in his music's way

I always wanted to warn other women about him. I never want anyone to experience what I did with him. I wish that he would get help. I also hate this article because it was his music that seemed so sincere and beautiful that made me fall in love with him. I had to get a restraining order against him in 2012 and so I did not see this article until now. I feel sick even revisiting a subject I would like to think I have moved on from and healed from. But simply put, I hope one day he takes ownership for what he has done, only so more women are not hurt.

Re: “The agenda behind the sea level rise bill: from the Carolina coast to the Kochs

You are absolutely right the things you mentioned in the article are too brilliant.Instead, Rouzer and his fellow Republicans passed House Bill 819, which restricts the ability of state agencies to accurately forecast and prepare for sea level rise. As a result, developers can continue to profit from building in vulnerable, low-lying coastal areas free of additional regulations that would apply if the state accounted for higher seas. this line is so precious to promote this post. http://www.couponpitara.com/offers/vistaprint/

Re: “The state GOP supports sweepstakes industry and empowers sleaze

I thought Jim Black went to jail for bribing Mike Decker to become a Democrat and then vote for him to be speaker. You know, the usual, cash transferred in a brown paper bag in the men's room at IHOP sort of thing...
