Democratic voters will select the next council member for the East Ward and Republicans will choose the next representative in the West Ward with no cross-party opposition in November. In most other wards, the Democratic primary winners are heavily favored to win the general election because of a strong party advantage in voter registration....

See, the problem is that Greensboro is used to thinking of economic development within the very narrow confines of attracting an outside business to locate here. Even with ideas that are marketed as visionary, like the downtown performing-arts center, the discussion returns to the idea that the project will draw in newcomers....

Shecame more than two weeks ahead of her due date. We experienced the first signs around 4:30 a.m. on a Friday morning, checked into Women’s Hospital and waited. For most of the day, nothing seemed to happen. Then, around 8:30 p.m., the contractions began in earnest and labor progressed rapidly until she arrived at precisely midnight....

The provision, which has been part of state law since the 1920s, gave neighboring property owners the ability to petition against a rezoning request that undermined the values of area properties or destabilized the community. If neighbors met a required threshold, approval by a city council would require a supermajority vote of 75 percent....

The telltale symptoms can be as far-reaching as social disconnection from the non-animated world, but as subtle as constant quoting and laughter. If possible, I would speak only in quotes from the greatest run of televised humor in history. Alas, I must press on with real-world anecdotes and speak to people with sentences I craft myself....
