Re: “Protesters dump 500 pounds of coal in front of Bank of America

They should have taken this coal a few blocks down the street to DUKE. They are the REAL culprits in destroying NC's air, water and land. BOA as far as I can tell has been on the forefront of converting and building their new sites to LEAD specifications. This article was very thin, we all know its hot and old people can't breathe. This is an issue CL should dive deeper into.

Re: “UPDATE: Fun police want to stop entertainment after midnight

I have been playing in and going to see bands since I was 15 and I am very proud of this history. I feel it has affected my development in a positive manner, providing me rare opportunities to connect with a community of fellow artists and fans.

The proposition to ban "Bar Entertainment" at establishments that are within 400 feet of residences is a direct attack on this community of artists who help make Charlotte a world class city.(http://charmeck.org/city/charlotte/plannin…)

This proposition also punishes local small business owners. Those proprietors of neighborhood bars will loose revenue and may eventually be forced to shut down. In this economic environment it doesn't seem fair or smart to put pressure on businesses who work hard to contribute to our community in a positive way.

Many of us who work uptown, don't want to play uptown too.

Many others certainly don't have the money to play or party uptown.
