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: “The Durham City Council Rejects a Controversial North Durham Rezoning Request

I thought NIMBYism was only allowed in Chapel Hill/Carrboro.

Pretty sure this will eventually go through, since it is NOT in Chapelboro.

Re: “Just Because the President Is a Scientific Illiterate Doesn’t Mean Climate Change Isn’t Real

Just because the Independent Weekly is a Scientific Illiterate doesn't mean it has to post idiotic statements about the President of the United States. More FAKE GRAPHS and associated NEWS.

Re: “Critics Say Duke Energy Is Trying to Roll Back Regulations and Corner the Market on Solar Development

Like it or not, as a consumer of electricity, you are going to pay for all of the operating costs. The coal ash management was done completely in compliance with applicable regulations. Yeah, there were failures, it is part of the price you pay to generate electricity.

Accepting the consequences of consuming electricity (or any utility) is part of the deal, like it or not. Most people have no idea what generating electricity (using any source) entails. This is why there is usually an outcry over policies and procedures that are industry standard. The general public does not understand what has to happen for you to plug in your hair dryer and get it to run.

Keep in mind, that if one does not wish to fund the entire cost and assume the consequences of purchasing power from the local utility, then they can always stop doing so, by generating their own power.

Re: “Critics Say Duke Energy Is Trying to Roll Back Regulations and Corner the Market on Solar Development

Since Duke owns and maintains all of the power grid in its territory it makes complete sense that they need to control who and what is connected to it.

Especially true for solar, which has unreliable/unpredictable and somewhat uncontrollable output relative to coal, nuclear etc plants.

Re: “The Durham-Orange Light Rail Heads to Washington, D.C.

What's a couple billion when it's not your money?
