Re: “Primer: What The Senate Health Care Bill Looks Like and Other Things You Need to Know Today

I'm pretty sure blue laws are unconstitutional; maybe we should fight them in court. Oh, wait... the AG won't have any lawyers for stuff like that.

Re: “Four Years After His Death, Jason Molina Lives on Through a New Book and a Revived Reunion

Thanks to the band at Motorco tonight. It was beautiful. I never get chills in late June during a Carolina summer, but tonight those chills came to me frequently during your wonderful set. "The Lioness" nearly caused hypothermia.

Re: “Mayor Bill Bell Has Overseen a Bull City Renaissance. So Why Has Durham’s Poverty Rate Gone Up on His Watch?

someone just asked me what i thought about this article again. i said that this article posits Bell as possibly slave to developer interest and betrayer of his people. Steve Schewel is framed as the (former) owner of [the] independen(ce)t. Jillian Johnson is forwarded as the voice of minority interests. Jillian and Steve came to Durham as students. Not that they ain't great. This article glosses institutional influence and probes developer impact.

It's (not so) subtle.

Especially with the upcoming election.

Re: “The Holloways Start a Food Truck Dynasty on Rigsbee Avenue

I've had the pleasure of meeting Frank and being served by him across the street from Surf Club on a cold winter's night late last year. He was cool, told us about his family's business, served up some great food, and since we were his last customers and he was getting ready to head off he offered us some free bottles of water. I have tons of respect for what he and his mother are doing and wish them the best. And like you said, not only is the food great, but it is consistently so and it's not over-priced like most of the others on your top ten list.

Re: “The Durham County Sheriff’s Office Says It Doesn’t Participate in ICE’s Secure Communities Program. Tell That to Jairo Garcia del Cid.

This kid gets picked up for stealing a car, ends up in jail, and is not in the country legally. Hard to be sympathetic for his plight. People like this should be deported. Kudos to Durham Sheriff's office for keeping our county safe.

Re: “Wake's Budget Gives School System Less Than Half of What It Asked For

I would suggest that you change the headline to reflect the actual content of the story- e.g. "Wake County gives School system less than half OF THE BUDGET INCREASE it asked for".

Re: “In Raleigh and Wake County, Taxes Are Going Up as the Legislature Offers Tax Cuts

I love content that explains money - but this one is pretty simplistic. The tax increases in Raleigh have nothing to do with the state. It's mostly the costs of urbanization and growth. Transportation, parks and greenways, and other amenities all cost money. Wake and Raleigh each have lots of them, At the county level, Wake's schools have done a lot with a little - and its reassuring to know that the county and the school board are working to get some of politics out of the school funding process.

As a city, Raleigh has added incredible service and recreational resources, the county has excellent schools and they boast some of the lowest taxes in the state. I think some of us are worried about the pace of development - but the economics and tax policy is impressive - and compared to Orange and Durham, Wake is hitting it out of the park.

Its easy to blame everything on the state. They deserve it - especially when it comes to healthcare and Medicaid expansion - something that counties are doing nothing about. Gentrification is undermining affordable housing everywhere - and the counties are all benefiting from the increase in property taxes. And like it or not - Wake has seen impressive job growth -something that benefits everyone.

So please help us connect the right dots so we can stop the partisan nonsense and start holding every politician accountable for helping to create communities that we all can be proud of.

What are the kitchen inspection and food safety laws for food trucks? The same as restaurants or different? How often are they inspected for food safety? Thanks

Re: “Wake School Board Grapples with Getting Half of the Money It Asked For

Why isn't the Indy asking WCPSS why they believe they have the right to retain the $20,000,000 ? It's taxpayer money directly intended for the school system. If they have that much left over, then what didn't the WCPSS fund in previous years? The headline is misleading, where is the mention that the County Board contributed more than their original proposal ?
The WCPSS talks about mistrust but they do nothing to foster trust --especially with all the hyperbole and attempts at creating a guilt ridden environment. The WCPSS consistently practices a lack of transparency, proposes unsustainable and at times grossly incorrect projections- but they want the taxpayer to trust them? When questioned they get angry and obfuscate. Then, much like this article, the media spins the tale that the County is unwilling to support education. Where is the media holding the WCPSS accountable ? Where are the articles detailing how taxpayer money is spent or mispsent? Where is a full picture of spending by the WCPSS? Is it just easier to eviscerate a BoC that is attempting to reign in an unsustainable trajectory of spending ?
