Re: “CL contributor's first-person account of the first two nights of protests following Scott killing

It sounds like the police were engaging in standard riot patrol, and only started using their batons after being pelted with water bottles and bricks.

Re: “Death of Charlotte biker brings cycling community together

I've came across this Article because a few nights ago me & my mother saw a ghostly shadow like figure in the sugar creek area around 11 o clock pm the figure was on a bike (with no reflection from our lights you could not see the rims or any features of the figure) riding along side a train where they are currently doing construction. The figure rode along the drivers side where my mom was close to the car and disappeared (i didn't see it but she saw it and it frightened her) and reappeared in the middle of the passing train.. rode alongside and disappeared again. i was wondering if the person died on the tracks but i found not articles relating to a cyclist or train death other than this article considering this man rode in that area it could've been this popular cyclist. I've heard if you keep a significant item of a person who died in a traumatic way they get trapped between worlds & wander. RIP to this gentleman i hope his spirit finds its way.

Re: “Rev. Robin Tanner hopes to reframe religion in the Bible Belt

You look 14 on TV. Your voice sounds like a 15 year old. Your views sound like my 16 year old granddaughter. Change your hairstyle to make you look your actual age. Get a voice coach to improve the sound. Think views through before speaking.

Re: “Union members launch largest organized labor mobilization in state history

Dearest Elias:

Unlike voting, which is a constitutional right, flying, banking, driving, cashing checks, and picking up checks of any kind are personal privileges. Furthermore, if you get sick days, pay raises, a minimum wage, vacation pay, and health benefits on your job, you got them because of the American labor unions.

Re: “Union members launch largest organized labor mobilization in state history

they are promoting that you don't need a photo ID to vote....is this suppose to be a good thing? you need a photo ID for virtually everything you do in life like flying, driving, banking, picking up or cashing your welfare check, etc...but you don't need an ID to vote. A good friend of mine use to say "unions represent the lame and lazy". I guess this a perfect example.

Be glad I didn't leave you with the burden of paying the price of a one on my sick or dead dogs... Yet you chicken shit hide behind your computer tip tapping something you haven't a clue about...

Re: “Chris Frye's got a workout for you — if you're up to it

In reply of first comment ...Nikki and Hallie Smith two lesbians that Offered me 10,000.00 cash for me to provide "DNA " for them to have a baby. I told them I would explore the process with them. They paid me 2000.00 cash for my time to have physical mental blood test .the girl I was dating (Michele Pulaski) at the time asked me to hold off for the time being to see where our relationship was headed I conveyed Michele's concerns to Nikki and Hallie that got very angry and decide to post this billshit. Don't you think if I took money from a credit card the CC company would recover for them.... Which makes this statement false off topic. Please remove

Re: “The life, death and rebirth of Tommy's Pub

The required amount of toilets varies based on the type of occupant. A bar requires more toilets than a retail shop or office. For any commercial building permit a toilet calculation is required to show there are enough toilets to meet the occupant load. In this case if you put a new bar where an office or store was and the restrooms are shared with other tenants then all of those occupant loads are added together and it appears as though it resulted in the need for (1) new male and (1) new female. To comply with the current NC building code the male/female designations are required. If you run across an establishment that has restroom signage making all restrooms unisex they made that change after they opened for business.

Re: “The life, death and rebirth of Tommy's Pub

Thanks for the reply, however why would there be "confusion and miscommunication" when the text of the bill is right there on the NCGA website?

http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2015E2/Bills/House/PDF/H2v4.pdf

Do you see any language in there that applies to the restrooms at private establishments? I do not. Did you contact Dan Bishop, the Charlotte attorney who was HB2's primary sponsor, if he envisioned HB2 being applied to private establishments?

As a Libertarian I want to see private establishments have control over their property. So I'm 100% supportive of the places that have put up their "our bathroom is open to everybody" signs. But I think it's pretty irresponsible to portray HB2 as either prohibiting restaurants/bars like Tommy's from building unisex bathrooms or forcing them to build three, when nothing in the language of the legislation as signed into law could be construed as containing such a

Re: “The life, death and rebirth of Tommy's Pub

Dork Knight, I did put some thought into that before going to print, but I respectfully disagree with your take on it. I simply wanted to show an example of the confusion and miscommunication that's led to delays in opening a new location.

The bathroom issue and the fact that he thought he needed to build two more led to major delays in opening this spot. It's what he believed was needed, regardless of whether it was. That's why I confirmed with code enforcement and clearly reported that HB2 had not had any effect on how occupancy affects bathrooms. Definitely no "political posturing" intended.

Re: “The life, death and rebirth of Tommy's Pub

HB2 has no effect on private bathrooms. Incredibly irresponsible for CL's editor to needlessly spread fear and inject ignorant political posturing into an otherwise-enjoyable article about a small business overcoming ad

Re: “The life, death and rebirth of Tommy's Pub

Do something new. A "dive bar" doesn't just pop up instantly. Letting Tommy's Pub just die would be the most respectful thing to do in this situation. Are those twins still involved with The Dirty Hippie? Ask them what a good name for a new bar would be.

Re: “Will Puckett bids farewell to the Queen City

I was part of the villa heights community organization when that Cordelia Park mural was done and I must disagree with Jenna's statement. We applied for a matching grant from the city for this and both Will and especially his wife put in countless hours helping us fundraise so that we could have a nice neighborhood art project. Everyone from the community was invited to participate in the art work.
