Re: “Beach Music Isn't Just Easy Listening—It's a Sunny Slice of Carolina History

I've found that beach music never creates itself. Music eventually finds its way into the "beach music sound." Some of the best music today including soul / R&B that both is, and will eventually to be associated with beach music is being released on Ecko Records in Memphis, Tennessee.

In the last 5 years, 11 of the 15 musicals NRACT produced were premieres in the region. I commend them for taking risks and showing us something new.

Re: “In a Mid-Century Raleigh Neighborhood, New Mansions Are Built So High They Block Out the Sun

I understand the Glover's predicament. In my old neighborhood off of Six Forks Road, the same intense building of McMansions has continued at breakneck speed. What was once a neighborhood of ranch homes and split levels built in the fifties has now almost entirely been replaced with houses the size of that being built next to the Glovers. In reverse order, what very few ranch and split level homes are left stick out as sore thumbs. The Churchill Road area of Raleigh is (or was) both beautiful and convenient to many areas of the city. Unfortunately, that is no more.

While Charles Meeker was innovative in his desire to re-create Raleigh, the constant intrusion of development at warp speed was probably not in his plan (or maybe it was.) From North Hills to downtown to established neighborhoods now being over run with what could be called "steroid induced development", Raleigh's character has changed for the worse. But in the game of politics, it appears most Raleighites actually wanted this based on those they put on the City Council.

Back in my neighborhood, new houses are inching close to zero lot lines and the streets haven't fared any better. Where once one was able to take a casual stroll at the posted speed limit, those same roads are now adorned with numerous and unsightly speed bumps. i really have to wonder if this is the definition of progress.

Re: “In a Mid-Century Raleigh Neighborhood, New Mansions Are Built So High They Block Out the Sun

What part of a law doesn't this developer understand?? The way everything is permitted these days it's absolutely absurd to for this crook to act ignorant. I'm calling Bull on this ! He thought he could slither away with it! I hope this "David and Goliath" story swings in the Glover family's favor! Stop Corruption! TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!!

Re: “North Carolina FC and John Kane Want to Put a Big Ol' Soccer Stadium in Downtown Raleigh

@ Hunter23 "A combination of investors and loans" is not specific, and nowhere in the article is the phrase "private investors" used. Almost all city stadiums subsidize their cost through state/city taxes, even when there are private investors involved. Letting the area south of Mordecai languish with bombed-out property is obviously not the answer, but neither is razing entire blocks to build a massive stadium in the middle of residential neighborhoods. Why not retro-fit for local businesses, or create public space that doesn't require a high ticket price for attendance? I understand a city wanting to revitalize itself, so to speak, but callously displacing a working population that has been making Raleigh an actual city long before transplants to downtown decided it was "cool" to hang out around there is cold cold cold. Want to build a soccer stadium in Raleigh? Fine. Just put it somewhere that isn't going to make downtown residents lives' a congested mess, and find a way to do it that won't divert funds from more pressing issues. You think people in suburban north Raleigh would be cool with a mega stadium right in the middle of their neighborhood? I'm sure they'd love the noise and public intoxication around their kids.

Re: “North Carolina FC and John Kane Want to Put a Big Ol' Soccer Stadium in Downtown Raleigh

The article clearly states the building would be privately funded with the state/local gov pitching in for infrastructure enhancement. The proposed plan is to build new office towers for state employees adjacent to the stadium (you used the term "displaced" like they're being forcibly kicked out of their homes...they'd be asked to work in a new building - I know, the horror). Also, I'm wondering how the ugly/outdated non-tax revenue gov buildings and empty parking decks add to the character of Mordecai and surrounding area?

Re: “In a Mid-Century Raleigh Neighborhood, New Mansions Are Built So High They Block Out the Sun

"Strict compliance with the provisions of the ordinance would deprive Applicant from the reasonable use of the property," the board wrote as part of a long list of findings of fact. That's rich! So ONLY a 28' wall height allows 'reasonable use', all others being 'unreasonable'? Incredible!

Re: “High Above I-40, Protesters Call for "Health Care 4 All"

I truly admire the passion and support the message. But it seems standing on an overpass during rush hour traffic could result in being more of a diversion. I can't imagine many people had a real opportunity to read the messages (without risking a car accident), causing the message to be lost and the efforts to be moot. This is certainly an important message, I just think there's a better place to share it.

Re: “North Carolina FC and John Kane Want to Put a Big Ol' Soccer Stadium in Downtown Raleigh

This will turn the Mordecai neighborhood & surrounding neighborhoods (one of the only places in downtown Raleigh with any character or calm) into a raving hell-hole full of drunks, strip mall style shopping and horrendous traffic. It will further congest traffic coming from north Raleigh down Capital into the city. Something like 86% of Americans don't follow the sport. Where's the $ to build that hideous altar to bloated capitalism & consumerism coming from? People's taxes? The same people who have to attend under-funded public schools and wont be able to afford the outrageously expensive and overpriced tickets? This is some classic yuppie bullshit.

Re: “In a Mid-Century Raleigh Neighborhood, New Mansions Are Built So High They Block Out the Sun

I beg to differ, some of these people may indeed take transit. BRT going through that part of town could take them straight to the park, and if they ever discover the pleasure of not having to drive then it could add up. Saying that single-family home density does not have an impact on density needed to support transit is a little short-sighted. If you look at the transects that traditional density patterns follow, you'd see that even SF density increases can complement density increases in surrounding neighborhoods that are closer to transit. For example, grocery stores follow rooftops (even the tall ones) and adding a little more density here and there could add up to support a grocery store closer to the community, which in turn could support transit and reduced trips and sprawl in other areas. Looking at this as a simple citizen vs. the big bad builders and government is counterproductive and erroneous.

At least some other publications and citizens are coming around to this reality:…

Re: “Farmworkers Blast Governor Cooper for Signing a Bill They Say Hurts Their Ability to Unionize

During his campaign, Cooper sold out refugees by agreeing with Trump and McCrory that there should be a halt to accepting refugees from Syria.

After taking office, he threw LGBTs under the bus with the so-called "HB2 compromise" that wasn't even supported by many members of his own party.

Now, he's sacrificing union members for political expediency.

Simply shrugging, saying "Oh bother" in a Winnie the Pooh voice, and doing whatever McCrory would do isn't what we voted for.

Cooper needs to simply run as a Republican in the next election or get knocked out in the primaries by someone who actually is going to act in the interests of the citizens of the state.

Re: “Study: Women in Wake County See Wage Gap Worse Than in Austin or Boston

But based on what this data shows, it looks like Wake County doesn't care about women that much, if it did this wage gap would not exist. I mean are we surprised? They don't care about poor old women who live in those Sir Walter Raleigh Apartments, I just don't get how our city leadership doesn't get called sexist when I see stats like this. And they are related because it's a way of saying "look at how progressive we are because we put some sign up in our yard" Even though they don't really care about the people they say they do. If they did, they would boycott businesses like Watts and Ward that is setup where a battered women's shelter used to be at. But I guess it's easier to just say nice things, than to take real action.

For the sake of clarification: shortly after I said this, several people did give us the finger from their car windows. I'd be happy to chat with any of them, if they read this.

Re: “In a Mid-Century Raleigh Neighborhood, New Mansions Are Built So High They Block Out the Sun

This kind of density won't reduce sprawl or traffic. Teachers, first responders, health care workers, etc won't be able to afford to live in the city. They will be forced to live in suburbs or small towns and commute in.

I live on Oak Grove Circle inside the belt line. 4 homes sold in past few years in the $300k to $400k range. Two were moved into and are being "fixed up" in keeping with neighborhood.

One was torn down, lot subdivided and two homes built and each sold in $800k range. Lots were pretty much filled up, causing tens of thousands of dollars in damage and repairs to neighbors from stormwater runoff. (We got new Infill stormwater regulations passed which should help with future projects).

Fourth home torn down and waiting to see what takes it place. Developer who bought house originally marketed plans for $1 million plus French Provincial which is in no way compatible with existing neighborhood.

Remember to vote in 10/10 City Council elections. David Cox and Kay Crowder stand for neighborhoods!
