  • 3. Flex That Legal Muscle by Geary, Bob
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    House Bill 589 is \"the most restrictive set of voting requirements passed by any state since the civil rights era.\" Reducing early voting time, ending same-day registration, and disallowing most provisional ballots are among some of its features. The US Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against North Carolina and Republican Governor Pat McCrory because it violates the 14th Amendment and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Geary states that the job of the NC Attorney General, in this case Roy Cooper, is to represent the people of NC and to defend the Constitution of the United States. He feels that Cooper should go into court and \"declare, in his legal opinion, that the law violates the US Constitution and should be struck down.\"

  • 4. Why Doesn't Durham Buy Art? by Vitiello, Chris
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    Vitiello examines the art gallery scene in Durham. Using Outsiders Art Gallery, owned by Pam Gutlon, as an example, Vitiello explains the difficulty galleries face financially. Outsiders grossed over $70,000 in art sales in 2012. With two-thirds going to the artists, rent and expenses took some of the remainder, leaving a profit of $334.00. In four years it was the first and only time Outsiders turned a profit. The owner is closing in 2013 and moving to Vermont. Vitiello examines other galleries, like Carrack Modern Art Gallery, Pleiades Gallery, and Craven Allen. All galleries have a different financial model, and he states that \"wisely, none is solely dependent on art sales for survival.\"
