Re: “Popular local cyclist Kent Winberry dies from injuries in Durham traffic accident

I wouldn't hold my breath on any kind of charges sticking against the driver, certainly not felony. A driver who kills a bicyclist (or motorcyclist) has about as much chance of being held accountable as does a police officer who kills a citizen.

Re: “Libertarian Sean Haugh could swing the Hagan/Tillis election

So, of course the first question that anyone who reads this article would ask, regardless of their political opinions, is "what happens if neither Hagan nor Tillis gets a majority of the vote ?" Run-off ? Person with most votes wins ? But of course, the journalistic powerhouse which is Indyweek neglects to address the issue.

Re: “After three weeks, a Raleigh teenager remains in jail after allegedly fighting on a school bus

Is it any wonder we have the highest incarceration rate on the planet ? This country is a police state - "land of the free", my a__.

Re: “It's becoming affordable in the Triangle—and it scares Duke Energy to death

Randy, sorry, but I don't believe you answered my question: how much of that $3 billion comes from voluntary payments (like GreenPower) from consumers like me ? My understanding is that these GreenPower payments are passed on to electric utility companies to support power generation using renewables, so the question is relevant. Perhaps I am mistaken, and if so, I'd be glad to hear why.

Re: “Staffers, parents concerned over kids' safety at Spence's Farm

Interested to read that climbing at Occoneechee Mountain is "not illegal". There are, in fact, signs all over the place stating otherwise. And a friend was ticketed by a park ranger for illegally "climbing and rapelling" there. The ranger (i.e. glorified cop) was an idiot, as rapelling means "to move down a steep cliff, rock, etc., by pushing your feet against its surface and sliding down a ROPE" and they did not have a rope with them.

Re: “Bow hunting legal; panhandling illegal

I've got no problem with responsible hunting, but the real answer for Lyme (and other tick-borne diseases) is here:

Why this system is so expensive (almost $1000 to get set up), difficult to purchase (one manufacturer, who's not real good about returning calls), and why government is not helping to get these things deployed (ok, well we know the answer to THAT one) - is a bit of a mystery.
