I already wish I had never heard the term "freezing fog." What is this fresh, freezing cold, hell?
I'm sitting in my home office looking out on Umstead Drive where the cars have been sitting still for at least the last 10 minutes. Have heard reports of at least two people who got stuck and are walking home miles in the snow.
Apparently, this is the stormaggeddon we've been waiting for. I can't wait until it freezes tonight!
How are y'all doing?
I just received this
article from a neighbor. It focuses on the state once again opting not
to use federal monies for important state activities. My guess is that
in the future the state will do less environmental monitoring and then
use that as an excuse to repeal current regulations making them even
weaker. The last two days I have been attending LUMO (land use
meetings.) An important issue is House Bill 74 which was passed this year. It's
goal was to prevent local governments from passing regulations which
will protect towns more than the state or federal laws. (The Republican
logic was that government regulation prevents job formation. By that
logic Chapel Hill should have one of the highest unemployment rates in
the state but of course we have one of the lowest unemployment rates. )
Fortunately it did NOT repeal current local legislation such as the
rules Chapel Hill has to protect water sheds, prevent erosion and
regulate development near streams. However, any revisions of those rules
under HB74 would require 100% (not majority vote) by the local
government. This means that as the town rewrites and in some cases
Jose knows someone at the HUD office in Raleigh, and today I talked with two people in the national office. They said that we have grounds for filling a report.. Here is the exact wording -
"Housing discrimination based on your race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability is illegal by federal law. If you have been trying to buy or rent a home or apartment and you believe your rights have been violated, you can file a fair housing complaint."
Both people with whom I spoke interpreted "national origins" to mean that non-U.S. citizens cannot be discriminated against.
