  • Not-so-fearless prediction

    FOX Sports Pete Fiutak breaks down tonight’s Orange Bowl. Fiutak’s “fearless” prediction: Louisville 27, Wake Forest 17. The N&R’s Rob Daniels follows suit, predicting a 27-20 Cards victory. I don’t see such average wins for Louisville. It’s either going to be a Louisville blowout or a tightly-contested Wake…

  • Clear the decks

    Will Winston-Salem get more federal money now that Democrats are in control of Congress? The Ferguson Group’s Leslie Mozingo hopes so, lest the city and the county take a closer look at its $120,000 contract In an e-mail to city and county officials two weeks ago, Mozingo…

    Greensboro’s notables present their wish list to Greensboro taxpayers.

Then and now, America…

  • The shame

    I’m not sure what John Edwards means when he says: ”Instead of staying home and complaining, we’re asking Americans to help. Most of the good that has been done in New Orleans has been done by faith-based groups, charitable groups and volunteers.” Seems to me that Americans are already…

  • Red-headed stepchild

    This would be funny if it weren’t so predictable: Now that Center City Park has opened, attention shifts to its neighbor to the north, a little-known, little-used green space across Davie Street. That would be Festival Park. The 0.6-acre, city-owned plot features grass, a few trees, a band shell,…

  • Where was the love

    I realize it was a different time. I realize the nation was dealing with Watergate and Vietnam. I realize the ’76 election was close. But I still have to wonder where the love for Gerald Ford was before we elected the worst president in our country’s history.
