  • Orange crush

    I wasn’t looking too bad until Louisville’s fourth-quarter run put the Deacons away for a middle-of-the-road 24-13 win. Oh well. Daniels: The Deacons’ defense, holding to form, forced relatively few punts and limited the number of long plays against it. The fifth-ranked Cards, averaging 38.9 points and 476.8 yards…

  • What does Frank Burns think?

    So Winston-Salem isn’t the only city hoping to finance a downtown stadium-retail-mixed-use development with public funds. Fort Wayne is taking that highway, too, and its paper of record is a little more skeptical than the Journal has been so far: Even those who share city officials’ and stadium backers’…

  • Welcome to the world, Leilan

    So you have to wonder how many phone calls the Lexington Dispatch will get from readers angry over its story on the first baby born in Davidson County in 2007 — to an unmarried teenage couple. Here’s another question: Did the Dispatch consider not running the…

  • 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…

  • Everything for everybody

    Greensboro’s notables present their wish list to Greensboro taxpayers. GCS Superintendent Terry Grier: Personally, I want to work together with the city councils in Greensboro and High Point and the county commissioners on a plan that would guarantee all (area public) high school graduates a minimum two years free…

  • Eight bills and a bottle of bourbon

    Residents living on the new Winston-Salem downtown stadium-mixed-use site have until April 1 to clear out, with whopping $800 help with expenses. Billy Prim is so kindly going to fork out those expenses, even though he doesn’t have to. But tell me if Prim isn’t going to to come…

  • Pulling the plug

    The N&R’s Rosemary Roberts piles on, using Gerald Ford’s death as yet another opportunity to slam President Bush: Ford’s death this week focuses needed attention on a president who faced problems in the 1970s not unlike the president who will succeed the divisive President Bush. Then and now, America…
