In the news this week: 603 new jobs coming to Charlotte. New jobs from an as yet unnamed company coming to High Point. And the Greensboro Partnership, which is in charge of bringing new jobs to Greensboro, wants more money so they can help a fellow start a company to make wooden bow ties.

Reference to the Rhino Times “Short” August 28, about Greensboro Police Department officer body cams not being public record. It’s probably because they’re protecting the privacy of all the people that they contact in the ordinary course of business. Videos on the internet are coming from the citizens shooting recording devices.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
or P.O. Box 9023, Greensboro, NC 27427.
The country is undergoing a constitutional crisis. Dear Leader is proclaiming he will act without Congress. Large portions of the judicial branch legislate from the bench. In this state the attorney general has publicly stated he will not do his job if laws he doesn’t agree with are challenged. The federal attorney general does the same at the behest of Dear Leader.

The Greensboro City Council did hear some great news at the work session, the plans for the creation of a Battleground Parks District.
The district would include the Greensboro Science Center, the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, Greensboro Country Park, Forest Lawn Cemetery and Jaycee Park, including the Spencer Love Tennis Center.
Combing all of those into one destination will give the area over 400 acres of park and recreation area to promote.
The plans include providing comprehensive signage and wayfinding, improving the connectivity between the existing recreation areas, establishing a brand to market the area and creating better transportation options within the 400-acre area. There will also be some kind of combined ticket options. One branding proposal is to use the catch phrase, “Where history meets nature.”
The good news is that both the Greensboro Science Center which continues its expansion and the National Military Park, are on board with the idea.
Greensboro Science Center Executive Director Glenn Dobrogosz gave the last part of the presentation on the idea because nobody wanted to follow him. He is so dynamic and enthusiastic about the Science Center and this plan that you know it is going to work.
He asked where else in the country did you have a national park, a city park and a museum-aquarium-zoo operated by a nonprofit all working together. I think the answer was nowhere else.
