    Communities in Schools announces new partnership, hopes to tackle students’ non-academic needs

    BURLINGTON, N.C. — For some students, succeeding in the classroom is about a lot more than academics. Emotional and social needs can make doing homework or paying attention in class difficult.

CIS currently partners with more than 400 schools across the state, but Eastlawn Elementary is the first partner school in the Alamance-Burlington School System. J’Taime […]

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Catherine Brown sits on her stoop. She prefers to be outside, she says, because of the conditions inside her apartment. “Roaches, mold, bed bugs,” she said. “I didn’t sleep all night.

    Dangers of debris in roads: What to do, who to call

    HIGH POINT, N.C. — We’ve all seen debris in the road. Tire shreds, car pieces, furniture. New numbers from AAA show just how dangerous that debris can be. A AAA Foundation Traffic Safety study shows that, over the last four years, more than 200,000 crashes nationwide can be attributed to debris in the road.

    New animal services director hopes to bring stability to troubled Guilford County shelter

    MEBANE, N.C. –A Mebane ordinance aimed at regulating panhandling appears to have diminished the activity significantly. Police Chief Terrence Caldwell said since city council approved the new solicitation ordinance at its Aug. 1 meeting, the police department has gotten only two calls about panhandlers, and zero people have applied for permits, which the ordinance requires of those who want to solicit. “I don’t know why they would choose not to, but that does seem to be the case,” Chief Caldwell […]
