  • City Bonds Heavy On Housing
John Hammer

The City Council usually meets on Tuesday, but this week's meeting is Monday, August 1 at 5:30 p.m. and provides the citizens of Greensboro with their only opportunity to weigh in on the bond referendum before it is put on the ballot for the Nov. 8 election.

John Hammer

  • City Forgot Why It Won't Pay Chief Wray
John Hammer

John Hammer

I really didn't think that anything the liberal mainstream media did would shock me, but I am shocked that at the Democratic National Convention on Monday night, the Democrats handed out signs in the press area and the reporters took the signs and dutifully waved them when ordered to do so.
