local news

I asked facebook Durham Herald Sun about local news coverage and this is what they sent me.

 
 
 

 
 
 

 The McClatchy Co. owns the N&O and late last year bought the Herald-Sun. About a month ago, the N&O closed our Chapel Hill office and moved the news and advertising staff to the Herald-Sun's office near Northgate Mall in Durham. The CHN and all the N&O's 10 community papers are changing (look for an announcement later this week). Our goal is to make the Herald-Sun the leading news source in print and online for Durham, Orange and eventually northern Chatham counties. The two papers -- the N&O and HS -- will share content in print and online. Feel free to call me at 919-829-8950 if you have more questions.

Immigration forum

This evening I attended a Chapel Hill/UNC forum about immigration and the law. The county sheriff and town police chief were there. They said the IDs issued by Faith Groups were very helpful and encouraged other districts to use them. The current Trump immigration order bans refugees from all countries not just the 7 nations often listed. None of the officials remember any local police being involved with deporting people. However, depending on the crime someone is arrested for, data is entered into systems which can be accessed by ICE. The immigration lawyers present advised legal immigrants with visas or Green Cards not to travel outside of the US nor near the US border states.

Contacting White House about immigration

I went to the white house web site to contact Trump about his latest ex order about immigration. I tried to call the numbers listed. I used 202-456-1414 this Sunday afternoon and a pleasant woman answered and explained that the comment line has not been activated for this administration and I should complete the on line form from the web page which I did.

This should be an interesting forum.

Election Results (national)

11/13/16 Election Result analysis for those of you who like numbers.

The election results show how divided the US is and I hope will mean that the winning side will take in consideration some of the issues of the losing side. Personally I know that the current Electoral College are the rules of the game and I accept the results. (Since Trump won, I have been mulling over a large number of “might have beens” but will save that for another time.)

 Exit polling indicates that most women voted for Clinton and most men voted for Trump; younger voters (under 45) voted for Clinton and older voters for Trump (as always, older voters had higher turnout); minorities (Blacks, Asians, Latinos) for Clinton and Whites for Trump. Protestants voted mostly for Trump, Catholics were more split (45% Clinton, 52% Trump) while Jews and other non Christian religions voted a lot more for Clinton as did the 15% of Americans who stated they had no religion.
