Re: “Street Stories

Sardis Road is named after an ancient city from the Bible. Possibly one or two immigrants from the Northeast US assume it has a connection to a deli in New York

Re: “Local Woman Calls Out TV News Crew for Invasion of Privacy

Joe Pamilla, Julie Szulczewski and Mark Becker... does not surprise me in the least.
I guess when you're used to unethical behavior, it's not hard to "stand by it." Shameful.

Re: “Everybody Needs Somebody, Even the Nacho Slobs

This reads like a window into a dysfunctional relationship spurred forward by passive aggressiveness and disrespect. You both seem to feed off the dysfunction, instead on working it. You're a nice couple, and I wish you the best, but some counseling may help flesh these issues out. Passive aggressiveness can rot a relationship apart from the inside.

Re: “Street Stories

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew anything about Bunclody Drive ? It shares its name with a town that I come from in Ireland. Who ever named it must have an association too!???

Re: “Charlotte School of Law is not doing itself any favors

>> The school has an estimated 1,300 students, nearly 1,000 of which rely on federal student aid.

And therein lies the problem... these for-profit schools (Phoenix, DeVry, Kaplan, etc.) get a massive amount of their funding from taxpayers.

Re: “Students learn disrespecting teachers goes unpunished

I teach many different ages. Some students have excellent parents that instill good manners, which leads to respectful behavior in the classroom, but many of my students are "volatile, sensitive, arrogant, disrespectful and combative" as the author pointed out. The big ego trip that America is going through stems from the rubbish media (movies, books, tv shows, etc.) that has polluted the minds of the younger generations. Nowadays, it's "hot, sexy, and alluring" to dress like a prostitute. Women are prostitutes and men are programmed to be attracted to that. No value is placed on intelligence and the journey to obtain knowledge. Class, elegance, and quality has taken a long, if not permanent, vacation. The bottom line is I think this enormous disrespect in schools is going to get worse. Hence, I am moving out of the country. America had its run. I'm moving to Europe were elegance and respect for educators is still a normality.

Thanks for this. Alcohol is a huge factor in awareness of your surroundings and is not mentioned here.

Re: “A look at why the African-American cultural scene struggles to thrive in Charlotte

Know what's worse than being in a boring city? Being around fellow blacks who only talk about what they do for a living and undergrad. No wonder Charlotte sucks.

Re: “Water protectors at Oceti Sakowin camp in North Dakota brace for cold weather, eviction deadline

Desiree, The benefit you warned people to stay away from actually promoted cultural competency and unity at our fundraising event for Standing Rock. I can't speak to your experiences, but our event in the community brought Brothers and Sisters from various backgrounds together, we made friends, and are building partnerships for a Powerful today and hopeful tomorrow. Our Native guest speakers had a platform to share their voices and experiences. People listened and were moved. Dialogue occurred. Change happens in peoples' hearts, not just by blindly giving money away to a Cause then going on with every day life.

I encourage you to attend a School of Jai event in the future. We welcome you and hope your heart can be moved to building a community in Charlotte that our future seeds can be proud of.

If Charlotte keeps disappointing you, then you've got to be the change. See you soon!

Re: “Charlotte's Most Haunted Places

Does anyone know of apartments in the university area being haunted? My daughter said she saw something tall, dark, with no facial features standing in front of her door. This creeped me out for sure and I know there is no way an intruder got in and out without a trace. I'm just not sure what to make of it.

Re: “O.N.E. Charlotte pushes for restorative justice in CMS

These folks are pissing into a fan.

CMS isn't going to change. They are too much in love with their own power to influence our children.

Re: “Water protectors at Oceti Sakowin camp in North Dakota brace for cold weather, eviction deadline

Don't go to the benefit mentioned. It promotes cultural appropriation. Give the money you'd spend to ocetisakowincamp.org instead. We don't need middlemen. If you're willing to participate in theft of culture, what else are you willing to steal? We're already fighting theft of land and water security. HUGELY disappointed in Charlotte, yet again.

Re: “Where is Charlotte's independent film community?

I must say,I have to disagree with the statement about Charlotte not being big on our film communities. This city is rapidly flourishing with young directors, producers, and actors. I've produced 14 features and a sitcom pilot with relatively no problems at all. My indie film company, Dreamboat Motion Pictures is currently working on our latest film project, The Basement, written and directed by Jamie Strong will release in the spring of 2017.
