Quote from: Beetle on February 27, 2019, 13:38:45 pmI'm saying it is ridiculous that this guy is stepping down.    It was a party about a TV Show.



Probably just doesn't want to deal with the media -- perhaps he was ready to retire

That's kind of how I figured most of these vandalism people looked like.

Image wise, I have no idea of the prototypical vandal.  I think the Indiana dude looks like this guy with glasses.

Not judging a cover, he did it. And saying yes, looks like the stereotype that would do that. That's the point.

And I would say he looks more like a WildMtWalleye that had a bad night sleep.

CHAPEL HILL
In two weeks, a plan is due for the future of the toppled Silent Sam Confederate monument, but so far the UNC Board of Governors has not debated the issue openly, and a special board committee has met only once, in private.

The panel's meeting, on Feb. 7, was not announced publicly and notice wasn't given to media organizations -- an apparent violation of the state's open meetings law, according to Amanda Martin, general counsel for the N.C. Press Association.


Silent Sam's future is 'a very public conversation,' UNC leader says. But it hasn't been so far.
https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/article226908194.html

A UNC-Chapel Hill trustee, Dwight Stone, emailed one Board of Governors member, Michael Williford, to say returning Silent Sam to campus was a very bad idea.

"Mike, putting the statue back up will make us ground zero for every nut job organization on both sides of the issue," Stone wrote on Aug. 27. "There will be no way to guarantee safety and I promise you whatever is put back up is going to be the target of every one of these groups to destroy. Not only will it cost up [to] a million dollars a year of taxpayer money to try to protect it, but we will never be successful doing so without armed guards standing around it 24/7. What kind of visual signal does that send to every parent or potential parent of every student at UNC."

Winston Salem Mayor announced that the statue will be moved today. I remains to be seen where the statue owned by the UDC will end up. The owners of the Salem cemetery, where there are confederate graves has offered to allow the monument to be erected in proximity to those graves.

The American Battlefield Trust has closed on a key acquisition in northerneastern Culpeper County that spans 200 acres of fiercely fought-over Civil War battleground, including more than 5,000 feet of Rappahannock River frontage .

The Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit preservation group bought the 12-acre "Culpeper Crossing" site fronting U.S. 29 from Culpeper developer Bob Currier for $1.8 million. He had previously rezoned the land for commercial use, once envisioning it for various tourist attractions, including a butterfly conservatory and a living-history village.

I go right by that site every month for bidness. The canoe/kayak launch at the river crossing got shut down years ago because the land owners got fed up with the litter, noise and drunks. A state administered launch would be great. You can tour Civil war sites: Rappahannock Station, Brandy Station, Graffiti House, Catlett Station, Bristoe Station, Kelly's Ford and more in a half day.
