This week is a very big week for the Greensboro City Council. The controversial bill, known as SB36, could be passed by a NC House Committee. If the bill is passed it will completely change the way Greensboro is governed....

While driving to an interview earlier this week I happened to see a plume of smoke hovering in downtown Winston-Salem. Of course the journalist in me hurried to the scene, while the human in me called 9-1-1....

I always enjoy the end of March and the preparation for an issue where we writers are allowed to flex our humor muscles and write sarcastic and satirical things about our community. It’s almost like I get to write what I wish happening, rather than write about the things that are actually happening whether I like it or not....

Let me be the first to admit that I have thoroughly enjoyed the craft beer movement. I may have gained 20 pounds from drinking 8 and 9 percent beer on a regular basis, but as Roy Williams would say, daggumit, I enjoyed every sip.

As I write this, the Triad and communities across North Carolina are doing their typical ‘run to the store for bread, rush home before any white stuff touches the road, cancel everything’ routine. While the damage might be far less than a tornado or hurricane, nothing is more crippling to a southern city than winter weather....

The space is called The Miraverse at Manifold Recording Studio. It’s about 15 miles outside of Chapel Hill on a country road off US 64. I was heading that way just after noon on Sunday, taking US 421 south out of Greensboro before picking up the six-fo’ in Siler City....

I didn’t know Dean Smith. I came to Carolina long after he had retired and his health began to decline. The impressions I have of him come mainly from others’ accounts, pictures and videos. But it is easy to see the impact he left on the basketball program, the university and the NCAA....

Groundhog day is generally one of the most inconsequential days of the year for people in the south like me and really for most folks. After all, Punxsutawney Phil is only right 40 percent of the time. Really, all I think of on Feb....
