TRC & City Council

It is all good news. I am especially impressed with Mayor Holliday for his leadership and Councilman Phillips for simply showing up.

Local blogs alive and clicking

It has been an interesting couple of weeks in the local blogosphere so I thought a few others ought to know about it.  My bi-weekly N&R column touches on just a few of the issues that local bloggers have been covering.

They’ve figured out where the people with jobs live, and they’re coming over.” We’ve had our fair share of hard-luck-story con games make the rounds in our neighborhood over the years.  To combat it, [...]

Minj no more

It is a sad day for wing lovers in Greensboro.  South Elm Street’s Minj Grille is closed with a sign on the door directing inquiries to a telephone number which connects you to an attorney’s office.  (Previous coverage - me, Cone) My family just hates this development.  Son Jackson has been working there on weekends washing dishes and [...]
