Re: “No Funny Stuff During Monday's Solar Eclipse, North Carolina Officials Tell State Workers

Couldn't they have issued a statement that said "don't be an idiot"?

Re: “You Can Now Go Drink at RDU on Sunday Mornings

I am offended, Tommy ! I have partied both early and late.

AND I have gone to Sunday School.

Re: “Should Wake County Spend Up to $20 Million to Convert a Failed Fuquay-Varina Golf Course into a Park?

the land will be landbanked by the school system, because land doesn't get cheaper.

Re: “North Carolina FC Has Come a Long Way in Two Years. But Is Raleigh Ready to Be an MLS Town?

It would be great if every article on this subject didn't attack Hurricanes attendance. Ten years of no playoffs would hurt attendance in Montreal, for crying out loud.

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

"razing entire blocks to build a massive stadium in the middle of residential neighborhoods"

Where are you getting that? This is not "in the middle of residential neighborhoods" - it's between the State Government complex and the railroad easement and Capital Boulevard. There are literally no residences in the area.

As for traffic, I look forward to seeing what improvements would be offered - the renewed Capital is going to be substantially better than what we have now, and improvements to Peace are anticipated.

I'm not going to reflexively say no because it's different. It's time we got beyond that knee-jerk response.

Re: “Raleigh Is the Second-Fastest-Growing Major Metro In the Country. Can It Keep Up?

Thank you for this article, Mr. Fine. If I am not mistaken, my full statement on Zebulon was that they had not seen the influx of residents that other towns in Wake had, but they will soon. This is a countywide issue.

Re: “Wake County Commissioner To Wake GOP Official: Show Me Proof Voter Fraud Exists

For the record, I never received a response from the Wake GOP or Mr. Hellwig.
