Re: “One Fish, Two Fish, Local Fish, Ugly Fish

What is "ugly" and extremely cruel is animal abuse. Science has shown that fishes are sentient, they suffer fear and pain. Fishing causes immense fear and pain to these sentient beings. All of the nutrients we need in order to thrive can be obtained more healthfully, humanely, and environmentally responsibly from plant sources. Needlessly harming animals for food or any other reason is animal abuse: plain, inhumane, and unjustifiable.

If you want seafood please opt from among the many marvelous vegan versions there are of virtually every type of seafood imaginable. They're better for us, for the other animals, and for the environment, and they're delicious! http://fishfeel.org/seafood/

Re: “After Years of Looking the Other Way, a South Durham HOA Cracks Down on Front-Yard Gardens

So they want a garden. They buy a house with a shady backyard and a HOA. Sounds like they engineered a bad outcome. Thats a their problem, not a HOA problem. Good thing the indy is inked with liberal tears because they never fall quietly.

Re: “After Years of Looking the Other Way, a South Durham HOA Cracks Down on Front-Yard Gardens

The Woodcroft HOA sounds sadly out of touch with current home trends. Family-friendly neighborhoods with play equipment and gardens--whether in front or back yards--are seen as attractive and friendly neighborhoods to new potential homeowners. Ignoring the majority of residents' wishes and forcing homeowners to dig up gardens is almost as illogical as making the comment above that said an HOA was necessary to "protect themselves from people like these." You need to be protected from living next to a computer scientist who wants to grow tomatoes with his kids?

Re: “What Do Lakewood Residents Think of Their Neighborhood's Newest High-End Restaurant?

My wife and I have lived in sight of the Lakewood for going on thirty years. We remember the Davis Bakery, the gas station that was where the Azteca is and the ABC store that is now Cocoa Cinnamon. I do not recognize my neighborhood in this article. This is not a traditionally Hispanic neighborhood that is suddenly being overrun by whites. It is the same diverse neighborhood that welcomed the Hispanics when they moved in. And I welcome the Lakewood to the neighborhood. They took a building that was empty for much more than a few months and gave us an attractive addition to the neighborhood. Affordable housing is an important and complex issue, but this unnecessarily divisive article does not further the discussion. The title of this piece should have been "What Do a Handful of Lakewood Residents Think of Their Neighborhood's Newest High-End Restaurant?" They do not speak for all of us.

Re: “After Years of Looking the Other Way, a South Durham HOA Cracks Down on Front-Yard Gardens

A similar conservative highjacking of the HOA and selective enforcement of covenants happened to us in Fairfield neighborhood in Durham 2 years ago.

HOAs are set up to protect developers and are not designed to serve the needs of the entire community for 20+ years. As such, a small minority can force their will against the rest of the community, as appears to be happening in Woodcroft.

This is why we moved to Watts-Hospital Hillandale!

So thankful my neighbors are considerate of their community and not so self entitled to believe that rules dont apply to them. More free time than common sense today.

Grow in your backyard, seriously nobody wants to see that. People live in neighborhoods with HOAs to protect themselves from people like these.

Re: “After Years of Looking the Other Way, a South Durham HOA Cracks Down on Front-Yard Gardens

if this is even true, was it existing gardeners on the board who voted to use a prefessional hoa management company?

Re: “After Years of Looking the Other Way, a South Durham HOA Cracks Down on Front-Yard Gardens

And that whole comment in the article about "battling resale values" is complete nonsense. We've got three houses in our cul-de-sac that recently sold; each had multiple offers above asking price on their first day on the market.

Re: “After Years of Looking the Other Way, a South Durham HOA Cracks Down on Front-Yard Gardens

So annoying the demographic most responsible for Durham's rising home values -- young professionals with families -- is supposed to *raise* property values? The Woodcroft HOA doesn't seem to have thought this through. Take a walk through the parts of Durham with ballooning values, like Burch Ave, Old North Durham, Cleveland-Holloway and Watts-Hillandale, and you'll see tons of frontyard gardens.

Re: “In Carrboro's first kava bar, Krave, getting kozy is hard

Citing the FDA as a credible source = poor journalism. Dig deeper and get to the root. The FDA/our government, directly responsible for dispensing (via internal organizations, created to perpetuate our collective fear of natural/ethno medicines that have been used mindfully and with great positive affect for thousands of years by our own ancestors) alcohol, cocaine, heroin, coffee/tea/caffeine, sugar, commercial tobacco, and a vast array of pharmaceuticals. All are addictive or have multiple side effects, cause major health issues with short and long term use, and contribute to the downfall of our society by way of dumbing down and placating the masses with one end goal in sight: control.

Re: “La Farm Bakery's Carolina Gold Rice Bread Shares Gems of the Past

Please make a Gluten Free version, for the many true Celiacs in this area.
I am disappointed at the lack of Artisan GF baked goods. I am willing to pay the extra for a good product, I am tired of freezer bread.
