Re: “Governor's School blues

I appreciate your feedback and comments as a mom whose daughter is our schools nominee for Governor's School. We have done the entire application process and are waiting till the decision in March. Being from the West coast, I have had to do much research in finding out just what Governor''s school is all about. To my dismay, I have found very little information. There was one parent who swore her son's eventual suicide was a direct reflect of his attendance to another who said quote, "if your child is a conservative and Christian, don't allow them to go." While we are parents that believe that our child should be exposed to things PRIOR to going off to college, I am not sure completely that this is the right thing to do. If any of you could expound on any of your experiences I would greatly appreciate your advice.
Thank you...

Re: “Gospel singer and pastor Shirley Caesar reflects on her life

When Pastor Shirley comes to Rich Square N.C. I'm willing to travel from VA. to be under her anointing once more. We enjoyed seeing her for the first time on 11/30/2014 @ Bishop Willis's Church in Franklin VA. She made me feel good when she let me embrace her, you could feel the anointing all over her and love. Lord we pray for her health to be bless each day and her faith to stay with you . Bless her works that she does on this earth and we know that her rewards awaits her in your heavenly home .Keep her and her people safe as they travel alone with her.

Re: “The two faces of Bo Lozoff

I came to this discussion about six years after the article's publication. I write only to thank those who beautifully came to Bo Lozoff's defense, and to thank Boand Sita Lozoff and all those who assisted them for their inspiration and their work.

How sad for all of us that destruction seems so much easier than creation.

Re: “After three deaths in two months, cycling advocates call for new bike plan, education, enforcement

I am an avid cyclist and every ride I see people with their faces/attention/visual perception buried in their phones. To which I yell at the top of my lungs "Put the God damned phone down and drive the fucking car!" Right now in my mind I can see one young lady whose startled response indicated either guilt or fear for being caught doing something NO ONE should be doing, texting while driving. I believe the level of addiction some people show to texting indicates a psychological/mental deficiency and they should be required to seek treatment. All it takes is one second of inattention for disaster to ensue. And while they may not be as vulnerable as a cyclist, they are putting their own lives at risk as well as anyone in their immediate vicinity. Cars should be manufactured with scramblers for cell phones which would be tied to the ignition switch. Whenever the ignition switch is on your cell phone would be inoperable. 911 should be the only number that operates while your car is running. If you are a psychological/mental midget who has a message/call that just HAS to be made at that moment in time, pull over to a safe spot, turn the car off, and make your precious communication. NO text message or phone call warrants the loss of an innocent human being's life.

Re: “After three deaths in two months, cycling advocates call for new bike plan, education, enforcement

Part of the problem is just bad driving in general. About 10% of us seem to signal turns and lane changes. I don't get it because with minimal practice it becomes automatic.

Another issue is that most drivers often cut across an oncoming lane when turning onto another road. This is illegal because it involves driving in someone else's lane. It is not so hard to move up far enough that one can turn from a right lane into a right lane.

Also most drivers around Durham don't seem to know what a yield sign means.

I don't know how much of this is applicable to the cyclists but the cutting across another's lane sounds like it may be what harmed Winberry. As for the rest, we all see, and are forced to tolerate, poor and irresponsible drivers everyday.

Re: “10 stories the mainstream media doesn't want you to read

Anybody with any sense gave up on the American mainstream media years ago. If you want to find out anything, read the Daily Mail, the Guardian and the Economist.

That said, IndyWeek should not be so quick to judge. Tremendous censorship goes on here, especially if revealing the truth harms the left wing narrative. Case in point: the scurrilous ripoff perpetrated by Kay Hagan and her family of the taxpayers over their solar energy installation boondoggle.

This story is tailor-made for a real, watchdog independent news outlet like IndyWeek to dig into. But, oh no, not one word. Silence. Crickets.

This begs the question: if a prominent NC politician can do this and and the NC media does nothing in response, should we take IndyWeek's posturing as a watchdog seriously at all? Or maybe it is just me who is tired of getting played....

Re: “After three deaths in two months, cycling advocates call for new bike plan, education, enforcement

Reducing speed limits is not the answer so much as the need to pay attention. Be aware there are others on the road, and mutual respect.

That mutual respect works both ways, bikers! So does "share the road." I ride often myself, but I don't try to hog an entire lane and slow up traffic for half a mile behind me.

While I am at it, lights are VERY important in the twilight hours, but the ones on helmets should be illegal. I hate it when a cyclist looks at me to make sure I know they are there, and I end up blinded by the helmet light.

This country was founded on the principle of a well informed public, which would govern itself through it's Representatives. Somewhere along the line someone decided it should be a misinformed public lead like sheep by the intelligentsia. Knowledge is power, stay informed.

Re: “Raleigh Planning Commission considering changes to 2030 Comprehensive Plan

" A Council committee recommended the changes with substantial citizen input this summer, in response to a citizens’ petition."

This statement is inaccurate. The council committee didn't make any recommendations regarding the Planning Department's proposals. All they did was send the proposals to the full council. The full council then sent the same proposals to the Planning Commission for consideration without making any recommendation of their own.

To date, no member of the full city council or the council committee that has reviewed these recommendations has made any recommendation to accept these proposed changes.

Re: “Sources: North American Soccer League poised to announce LA expansion

Just another team to fold. NASL will die soon, within a few years.

Don Garbage is going to put a MLS team in virtually every NASL city eventually, choking NASL to death which he is desperate to do. It does not have the funds/backing to compete.

Re: “Some questions that need answers as another attempt at Wake transit planning approaches

Money was easy in Charlotte prior to late 2008. It's good that Charlotte got its system underway before the bubble broke. Probably couldn't happen now. The days of easy money in Charlotte are gone forever.

Let's be honest: commuter rail is primarily a way to get state gov't workers into DTR. Disproportionate numbers of state workers live along the US 64 East corridor, the US 70 South corridor, and the US 401 South corridor that are all parallel to rail lines. On that basis alone, commuter rail makes some sense. State gov't might not be growing, but neither is it likely to shift a lot of jobs out of DTR.

I agree that nobody in north Raleigh or north Wake will ride rail, whether light or heavy, into RTP. Even improved bus service into RTP is questionable until I-540 becomes impossible -- it's not that bad yet -- or gasoline per gallon gets $5-6. Of course, a number of misguided rail zealots would like to harpoon RTP and drive all the development into DTR. Ignore them.
