What are YOU looking for?

When you go to the self check-out line at the Taj maTeeter on Friendly Avenue, scan who is in line behind you before you start to scan your groceries.  It might be Sour Bob.  If it is, you’ll want to follow his concise guidelines… or else. I have linked to Sour Bob under “new finds” (thanks [...]

What are YOU looking for?

Do not make the mistake of thinking that Commissioner Billy Yow is an aberration in Guilford County, he has a lot of fans… or at least his t-shirt does.  Internet surfers continue their attempts to locate an outlet selling the racist message but they find me instead.  I saw two guys wearing the shirt at Lowe’s [...]

Welcome news for Greensboro neighborhoods.

Over the years my neighborhood, and many others, have appealed to Greensboro’s Department of Transportation (GDOT) to install speed humps on some of our streets to slow traffic.  It is not unusual for cars to travel in excess of 45 mph along our narrow streets that are used as a “cut through” for folks trying to [...]

What? When did Beanie Babies go out of vogue?

EBAY gone stupid: This is the perfect flake to start or add to your collection. The seller got $5.50 for it. I’m going to start looking at my cereal as offering more than just nutrition

At long last

The Guilford County Republican Party has spoken.  In a press release, carefully worded to make Republican Commissioner Billy Yow shake in his boots and to reassure the African American community that Guilford County’s Republicans are not racist yahoos, the Party’s Executive Board is unequivicable in its righteous indignation and scathing condemnation of the recent behavior of one [...]

Piling on

Cone cites Yost on Yow.  The Rhino was critical of our self-avowed rebel County Commissioner in todays edition (links come Monday).  Hammer and Co. have built a reputation for always being the contrarian, but in the case of Billy Yow they see that there is no contrary point to champion…. Billy Yow must go. The N&R has [...]

On behalf of Action Greensboro, The Weaver Foundation is purchasing the 4.3 acre Duke Power site on North Church Street @ Friendly Ave. for an undisclosed amount, “(b)ut it is being sold at a very favorable price…” according to a Duke Power representative.  There is speculation [...]

School Uniform Links

I’m not going to get stuck on school uniforms, but it was recently stated in an Aycock staff meeting that other Guilford County middle schools are going to see “how it goes at Aycock” before proposing similar policies.  My school is apparently going to be the proving ground.  Just my luck… I need another public controversy [...]
