    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro City Council members are considering canceling the annual Gun and Knife Show in light of the recent mass shooting at a Florida high school. Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughn told NBC affiliate WXII that the entire City Council is in support of canceling the show, scheduled for Aug. 25 through Aug. 26 at the Greensboro Coliseum. Vaughn, who describes herself as a gun owner, said the idea came about in response to a conversation she had with her daughter, a high school student, about the Florida shooting that left 17 people dead. “As a council, we thought...

    On a cloudy day in early November 1979, a caravan of Nazi and Ku Klux Klan members careened into Greensboro, North Carolina, winding toward a local Communist Workers’ Party protest that had gathered in the city to march against the state’s white supremacists. The communists, wearing berets and hard hats, spotted the fleet and taunted the new arrivals with chants of “Death to the Klan!” The KKK convoy slowed, and stopped. Far-left protesters, bearing both wooden planks and concealed pistols, began surrounding the motorcade, beating the doors. As TV cameras rolled, the trunk of a Ford Fairlane, stuffed with shotguns...

    "You can't start a fire. You can't start a fire without a spark!" Bruce Springsteen fans in Greensboro, North Carolina, won't be dancing in the dark anytime soon, because The Boss canceled an upcoming concert. And you can blame the governor and state lawmakers. Springsteen moved the concert in protest of the state's so-called "bathroom" law, which, among other things, forces transgender people to use the restroom associated with the gender on their birth certificates, not their gender identity. Springsteen released a statement saying, "Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and...

Springsteen and the E Street Band were scheduled to perform at the Greensboro Coliseum on Sunday night as part of their current tour, which continues in the United States this month and heads to Europe in May. On Friday afternoon, Springsteen released a statement saying that he could no longer play the show.

    In the wake of protests at the University of Missouri, students of color at Guilford College are rallying against perceived racism on their campus. Guilford College is in Greensboro, North Carolina. Like their compatriots in Missouri, the protesting students have released a list of demands. If they are "not met within a week," protesters promise they will rally on campus again. Among other things the students want, they are pushing the college to have professors, administrators, and staff to admit they are racist, that no black people should be in any marketing campaigns for the time being, and an investigation...

    GREENSBORO, N.C. – Two North Carolina churches recently suffered thousands of dollars in damage as their buildings and property were trashed and spray-painted with pro-homosexual messages. Officials at Bales Memorial Wesleyan Church in Jamestown arrived last Saturday to find the church sign broken and pelted with eggs and silly string. Some of the church windows had been smashed, flowers were uprooted and parking signs were ripped out the ground. The hood of the church bus was scratched as if it had been keyed, and a sign was shoved through the front grill. A number of messages were also spray painted...

    The Guilford County Department of Social Services (DSS) scandal has left a mountain of questions in its wake as to how it came about, and now county officials investigating the matter are finally starting to get some answers. **SNIP** One Guilford County DSS employee told the Rhino Times this week that the problems in the department go very deep and this latest crisis is just one manifestation of those issues. “No management manages,” the employee wrote in an email. “No policy is completely followed. People are authorized benefits that are not thoroughly evaluated. Workers have to keep authorizing clients that...

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Some Greensboro City Council members are having their trust of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum tested again after learning no one representing the museum ever signed loan papers. The loan from the city was for $1.5 million and wouldn’t have had to be paid back if certain conditions were met. The city paid the museum the first half of it — $750,000 — in October, but today the council learned the loan papers were never signed. Some council members are wondering if the city should ask for the money back.

    A Civil Rights pioneer has died. Franklin McCain was one of four teenagers who sat down at an all-white lunch counter in Greensboro on February 1, 1960... The freshmen from North Carolina A&T ignited a sit-in movement in the Jim Crow south that led to other key chapters in the Civil Rights era... Initially McCain and the other men were known as the A&T Four, because what they did was viewed as so controversial. In time, the city adopted them as their own, and today they're more commonly known as the Greensboro Four...

    RALEIGH -- In an odd political bedfellows moment, three North Carolina congressmen - two progressive Democrats and one religious-right Republican - joined forces Monday to urge the Obama administration to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan. At an anti-war town hall meeting in the Legislative Building, Republican U.S. Rep. Walter Jones and Democratic U.S. Reps.David Price and Brad Miller sought to keep the pressure on the administration to end the American combat operations by the middle of 2013. "Our concern is that too many times, administrations will say that the date for coming home is a year from now, 18 months...
