Re: “Updated: State votes to revoke charter for Raleigh's Dynamic Community school

As a parent of a child with sever disabilities I resent him being used as a political foot ball for the unrealistic goal by forcing him into unworkable situations in public schools. Done all in the name of integrating. The abuse and neglect many of these special needs children suffer on a daily basis in public schools should be at issue. For a charge of segregation it would mean that these children are forced to attend Dynamics. They were never forced. The parents chose this school, were involved in this school unlike any other school in the public school system. In fact most parents aren't allowed to work or have visitation to their child's classroom in public schools. There is little parental supervision and the public school supervision is a joke. As children have been known to be locked in quiet rooms, strapped to tables, bullied, neglected or expelled while in public schools. Nothing is ever done to the public schools because there is no parental oversight. There was massive parental oversight at Dynamics and parents who were there know that these allegations were and are baseless or trumped up for a political agenda and financial gain. It is the height of arrogance to think that by destroying this charter school that these kids will be force back into public schools for the agenda of integration. Those who have financial ties to other alternatives to public schools where in authority to push to shut down Dynamics.

Re: “Residents at the Velvet Cloak Inn rise up against property owners in legal fight that has ramifications for North Carolina

I had fond memories of the Velvet Cloak and even looked into purchasing a unit to live in, boy did I dodge a bulliet. It is such a shame to lose a piece of Raleigh history should it be torn down.

Re: “NC Libertarians: Republican anti-voting bill "a nightmare for free elections"

Limiting early voting, ending pre-registration for 17 year olds who will be 18 by election day, ending same day registration even with an ID and ending paid voter registration drives. It seems to be me that voter registration should be as simple as store loyalty cards. To clarify those plastic discount cards with a code. The card would have to presented to vote and the card could be scanned to check in. It would require fewer poll workers and the check in process would be much faster. Such a system would go farther in eliminated voter fraud than what has been purposed by HB589. I don't know what they were thinking by limiting early voting. It actually hurts their vote totals because people who have jobs don't have the time to hang around in long lines to vote like people on welfare.
