Noble: The Emanuel Nine, four months later

It's off the front page of the newspapers. There are no packs of reporters prowling the streets. The banks of television cameras across from the church are all gone. The politicians and celebrities have all gone home.

Parker: Yo ‘heart’ el papa

Tatum: How to sing the blues

I got this a few years ago from a twisted musician friend of mine. Of course, I don't usually publish something I get by email, but this was pretty funny and unlike most memes, pretty good natured. So in honor of the upcoming Carolina Downhome Blues Festival, I thought I would share it.

Moment of Nature - Sept. 25, 2015

Last month, I wrote about how the extreme temperatures in June, the current drought conditions throughout the summer and the probability of bugs attacking trees is likely, all of which are wreaking havoc on our community trees. As of this writing, we've had gone 21 consecutive days with no measurable rain fall within the city center.
