Re: “New State Law Means Raleigh City Council's Zoning Decisions Could Come Back to Haunt Them

"...and Senator Norman W. Sanderson, representing Carter, Craven, and Pimlico counties"

Pimlico is a racetrack in Maryland... Pamlico is a county in NC.
TN, KY, OK, MT (maybe some others) have a Carter County, but NC has Carteret County.

Re: “In Dire Need of a Kidney Transplant, Charly Lowry Takes a New Look at Her Life's Work

My sweet little Charly,
My mind takes me back to the days when you were at the daycare center at Union Chapel with me.. I was Director at the center, your mom brought you in .She went on and on about how and why she named you Charly..I thought that was so unique. She was so proud of you and all of your accomplishments even as a little child .We knew that God had great things in store for you..Thank God that she lived long enough to see you accomplish a lot of those goals.. mom has not truly gone she is in the eye of the beholder.. look in the mirror ,she is still here in part in you Charly.. wherever you go, whatever you do,,,...look in the mirror.
Baby,,soar like an Eagle to the heights that God has planned for you,,, you will never be alone in any of your endeavors,,God can be the wind beneath your wings....
Your adversities will be your testamony one day.
Love you, Alice Jacobs Cummings

Re: “The Disruption on the New Raleigh City Council Is a Blast from the Past

This article is ridiculous. Since when do all the councilors have to vote for committee's just because that's who the mayor wants. Didn't we elect the individual councilors to make decisions independently of anyone else? The mayor is not a dictator. I'm glad we have councilors that will stand strong and vote how their conscience tells them to.

Re: “Durham's Sheriff Wants to Put a Stop to Spontaneous Protests on County Property

As far as I know, there is no permit available to commit crimes against persons or property. Arrests for drunken and disorderly behavior, or disturbing the peace are subject to the discretion of the officers at the scene. If Duke students are involved, we know that how they are dealt with depends on the relative wealth and influence of their parents.

Re: “Durham's Sheriff Wants to Put a Stop to Spontaneous Protests on County Property

So, what happens when Duke wins a national championship and a crowd of 51 fans spill out of their downtown beer joints and engage in "a public display of sentiment for or against a person or cause? Will the Sheriff then start arresting folks for disturbing the peace? I do not like the idea of the Sheriff having the authority to pass such judgements. Crimes against persons or property are crimes and should be acted against, whether or not a proper permit to display sentiment has been granted within the specified time period.

Re: “A New Thrift store at the Scrap Exchange Might Seem Redundant, But It’s Good for the Future of the Nonprofit—And the Triangle

Just to be clear, TROSA Thrift Store does still have to pay to dispose of many items that are unsellable. While we do our best to try to have zero waste, through the methods described in the article, there are still some items that are broken or soiled and not in a condition to sell or even give away. Some items that come to us are only appropriate for the dump, as detailed in this story:…

We've worked closely with The Scrap Exchange and others to minimize waste, and are excited for their new store and our continued collaboration. Congratulations to the Scrap Exchange, and I'm personally excited for when the books get moved into the new space!

Re: “Durham's Sheriff Wants to Put a Stop to Spontaneous Protests on County Property

I'm in favor of the Sheriff doing his job - that's what we pay him to do. Sworn officers do have some discretion in making arrests for misdemeanors and, in our community at least, they seem to handle such situations evenhandedly. IMO, the Sheriff has the wherewithal under existing statutes to keep the peace. The additional ordinance desired by the Sheriff that further restricts peaceful assembly is not needed and would create the potential to obviate First Amendment rights merely for the convenience of the Sheriff.

Re: “Global Warming Could Be Part of the Reason N.C. Is So Damn Cold Right Now. (Seriously.)

Yes, there are natural cycles, no that's not what's happening today.

This graph shows CO2 for the last 800,000 years, the spike on the right hand side is us, that started with the industrial revolution when we started dumping massive amounts of carbon into our atmosphere:

You can see the natural Milankovitch cycles at work (Milankovitch cycles are caused by changes in the sun's energy, called 'insolation'.).

Now look at the spike on the right side - you can see it looks nothing like those natural cycles. That spike is us, it begins at the start industrial revolution ~1800, which is when we started dumping massive amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. Note that it's both a bigger than theMilankovitch cycles AND the rate of change is much faster.

You can see very clearly what natural CO2 cycles look like, and you can just as clearly see that the spike in the last 300 years is nothing like the previous, natural cycles.
