Barometer: Why is the Rhino Times’ plot to reduce Greensboro City Council a terrible idea?

Why is the Rhino Times' plot to reduce Greensboro City Council a bad idea?

The Rhino Times has a lot of terrible ideas, the latest one being a proposal to reduce the Greensboro City Council from nine seats to seven. After they floated the proposal, state Rep. Trudy Wade said she’d be willing to bring it up to the General Assembly. We want to know why you feel, as we do, that it’s a total load of crap.

Leave a comment if you feel like elaborating. We’ll publish the results in the next print issue of Triad City Beat, which comes out a day early, Dec. 23 thanks to a certain Christian holiday. #ThanksChristmas.

Triad City Beat This Week: Dec. 17-23, 2014

cover_murder

Winston-Salem and Greensboro have the highest rate of unsolved homicides among the five largest cities in North Carolina. Beginning with the Oct. 30, 2013 murder of Cranston Hargrove and continuing through April 2014, Winston-Salem experienced a nearly continuous streak of unsolved homicides, with the body count reaching about a dozen — all but one of them black and male. The reasons are complicated — relating to the social circumstances of the victims, trust between the police and community, and arguably law enforcement priorities — but the consequences are devastating for the families left behind. Jordan Green and Rebecca Harrelson break it down in this week’s cover story.

Getting away with murder: Unsolved homicides in Winston-Salem and Greensboro

cover_murder

by Jordan Green and Rebecca Harrelson

Cranston Hargrove, a 39-year-old Winston-Salem artist and entrepreneur, had planned an outing with his girlfriend to Woods of Terror on the night before Halloween, 2013.

A friend dropped in for an unannounced visit at the house Hargrove rented on Reich Street, an obscure lane east of Wake Forest University. It was long past dark when the two went outside to retrieve something from their cars, and the only light came from the front porch.

Two gunmen with semiautomatic handguns stepped out from the side of the house, where an abandoned car was parked, and shot Hargrove in the arm and head. His friend turned and ran, but Hargrove wasn’t so lucky. The gunmen fled to a car waiting at the end of the curb and sped away. Read More

Marwan’s brother, Dr. Adnan Mjalli, who is the founder, president and CEO of TransTech Pharma, encouraged the couple to move to the Triad. They settled in High Point, and built a rental-housing business in Greensboro. Read More

FCC approves new community radio station in northeast Greensboro

141217.GSOnews-Radio-eg

by Eric Ginsburg

The Federal Communications Commission has granted a construction permit for a new, low-power FM radio station, paving the way for a community-run outlet in northeast Greensboro.

More than a year has passed since a small group of Greensboro residents applied for the right to take to the airwaves, but last week they finally received some good news. As part of a nationwide, once-in-a-lifetime move, the Federal Communications Commission opened up frequencies to new, noncommercial ventures to broadcast low-power radio stations. And if all goes as planned, Greensboro will be one of the cities with a new outlet on the air. Read More

Exile on Jones Street: How the Dems will lose the next one

by Kirk Ross

There are a lot of mysteries in politics, but not as many after the votes are counted.

That’s why it is traditional to wait a few days before plunging into the next election cycle. It affords the people who are already poised for the next big race valuable insights as to what went right and what went wrong.

Given that, it was a little disconcerting to receive a fundraising note from the likely Democratic candidate for governor at around 3 p.m. on the day after his party took a pretty nasty drubbing in a hugely expensive and very winnable statewide race.
