Duke Student Group Develops Plan to Beautify Durham, NC
The nonprofit Keep Durham Beautiful does exactly what their name implies in Durham, N.C. Trouble is, they are a small organization and they needed some help to make sure they were effectively tracking impact. They turned to a volunteer student group out of Duke University, the Duke Interdisciplinary Social Innovators (DISI) for help. The DISI team includes students from the Sanford School of Public Policy, Fuqua School of Business and the Pratt School of Engineering. DISI is a model of innovation and community service, and is entirely run by students.

26 Arrested Protesting Chicago Public School Closings
Twenty-six people who are against Rahm Emanuel's school closing policies were arrested at City Hall today during a sit-in where they blocked elevators and sang protest songs made famous during the Civil Rights Movement. After delivering a number of petitions calling for a moratorium on school actions to the mayor's office on the fifth floor the group headed to the first floor lobby and disrupted city business. Among those arrested were Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) officer Kristine Mayle and a number of teachers, parents and community activists. The sit-in happened on the last day of a three-day march for education justice that moved hundreds of people through the South and West sides of the city.

The property also includes two barns, two steel storage bins, and a silo; a long driveway encircling a massive tree outside the home; and beautiful gardens surrounding a century home that enjoys stunning views of the rolling farmlands from both its outdoor and interior living spaces. The footprint of the original brick homestead remains to this day, while later additions of a solarium and an upper level bedroom wing have given the home additional living space. Lined with majestic trees on the west and south sides, the home features both a stamped concrete and an interlocking walkway to a covered front porch that has both a concrete and a wood floor. The 3-season solarium on the south side of the home is surrounded by a deck, which connects to the front porch for wrap-around access from the front to the back yard. The entrance foyer is ceramic-tiled and has a double coat closet, and the tiles continue through a pocket door entry into a mudroom with a water closet, a laundry area, and access to a covered drive-in storage shed and workshop covered with ivy. The foyer opens into a traditional country kitchen with a huge breakfast/dining room, and which features hardwood flooring, wood cabinetry, a ceramic-tiled back splash, plenty of counter work space with a breakfast bar, and includes appliances. The main level’s den has a wood-burning stove for cool weather coziness, and both this room and the adjacent family room showcase the home’s original pine flooring - which can also be found throughout much of the upper level - and in keeping with its century character, some of the original trims and baseboards can also be seen throughout the home. Most of the windows are quite large, allowing for abundant natural lighting, and this home does have a basement level - although unfinished, yet giving the home great storage space. At the foot of the carpeted upper level staircase is the sliding door walk-out to the solarium, where the gorgeous outdoor scenery can be readily enjoyed. The upper level features four bedrooms and a modern 4-pc washroom with a skylight, built-in linen/toiletry storage, a combined bath and shower area, as well as easy care vinyl flooring that mimics the look of a painted vintage wood floor. The second and third bedrooms are quite cozy, with the third bedroom finished with carpeting. The fourth bedroom is a later addition to the home, has a spacious sitting area, is carpeted as well, and has two walk-in closets (one is off the hallway into this room). The bright master bedroom has wonderful views of the farm and rolling hills of the countryside, and comes with two double closets. This home is within the catchment areas of North Cavan and James Strath Public Schools, St. Alphonsus Catholic Elementary School, Crestwood Secondary School, and Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School; as well as Westmount Public School, St. Catherine Catholic Elementary School, Adam Scott Collegiate and Vocational Institute, and St. Peter Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs. Peterborough is a short 20 minute drive for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, as well as medical and professional services - while with quick access to Hwy 115, the heart of Durham Region is just 45 minutes away.

City Hall This Week - Ep. 125
DURHAM, N.C. -- The following highlights from the October 3, 2011 Durham City Council meeting and other topics of interest will be featured in this episode of "City Hall This Week." The show will also be available to watch on demand at www.DurhamNC.gov/DTV8/CityHallThisWeek.cfm. City Makes Progress on Failed and Struggling Developments The City Council received an update on what is being done to address street and stormwater improvements needed in Durham's failed or struggling developments. These are developments that have not been completed by the developer, often because of a bankruptcy situation due to the recent economic downturn. Public Works Department Engineering and Stormwater Services Manager Ed Venable explains what the City is doing to make sure the improvements are still made on this episode of "City Hall This Week." City Council Approves Teer Quarry Contract Plans are moving forward to reduce Durham's risk during future water shortage emergencies and to adapt to continuing growth. The City Council approved a $993,820 site design contract to allow for the evaluation of Teer Quarry. The City hopes to use the quarry as a short-term water storage and pumping facility that can meet Durham's needs during emergencies as well as be expanded for long-term operations. To find out more about Durham's water supply sources, visit www.DurhamNC.gov/Departments/WM. City Continues Support of Central Warrant Control Office The City of Durham and Durham County are continuing their support of a Central Warrant Control Office in an effort to make sure that outstanding and backlogged warrants are handled as efficiently as possible. To help fund the cost of the office, the City will pay up to $182,516 to help pay for eight full-time clerks and one full-time supervising clerk, plus specific office costs. In addition to the shared clerical costs of operating the office, the City will also pay $282,181 for the salary and benefits of four officers in the Warrant Squad Division. Durham County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Brendan Hardigan explains why the Central Warrant Control Office has become an effective law enforcement resource on this episode of "City Hall This Week." City Accepts Federal Lead Abatement Grant The City's lead abatement program is getting another boost -- thanks to a $416,550 Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The grant will be used to provide help to 30 homes that are occupied by young children. Community Development Department Housing and Rehabilitation Program Manager Donald Ham explains why lead is especially hazardous to children under the age of six and how he hopes this grant will help stem the effects of lead exposure in Durham's youngest residents on this episode of "City Hall This Week." Other interviews featured on this episode of "City Hall This Week": • Community Development Department Interim Director Reginald Johnson and other City Staff -- Unveil their plan for making sure the Southside Revitalization Project sets the standard for how such projects should be handled in the future. • City Attorney Patrick Baker -- Explains how future elections will be changed by Durham's 2010 Census numbers. • Transportation Department Director Mark Ahrendsen -- Offers some important information about the upcoming half-cent sales tax referendum to support transit improvements in Durham. "City Hall This Week" is a news program dedicated to informing Durham residents about what is going on inside Durham's City Hall. Each edition is taped on the first and third Tuesday of the month -- the day after City Council meetings. It airs three times a day on DTV8 (Time Warner Cable channel 8) through the week of the next City Council meeting.

Confronting Inequity and Structural Racism by  Building Community Schools: Here’s How to Do It
Our speakers will include: • Jeannie Oakes, Senior Fellow In Residence, Learning Policy Institute • Jitu Brown, National Director, Journey for Justice Alliance • Marianna Islam (moderator), Director of Programs & Advocacy, Schott Foundation for Public Education The last few decades of privatization efforts have devastated public schools across the country, especially those in poor neighborhoods and communities of color. But the last thing we should do is look back wistfully to the education system of years past that did not serve the needs of the whole child: even before the first wave of charters and vouchers arrived, many schools were already failing the children who needed an opportunity to learn the most. Handing our most important public institution over to private interests didn’t solve the segregation, funding inequities, or systemic neglect of our most disadvantaged students. Not only did it make those problems worse, it introduced entirely new problems that children and their families must navigate every day. But out of that failure a growing movement of parents, youth, educators and community advocates are building a better path forward: community schools. As shown in our Loving Cities Index, barriers to a student’s success can be found both inside schools and far beyond the schoolhouse gate. Using whole-child wraparound supports — like health and dental clinics, mentoring, and counseling — community schools become hubs of activity and progress in the neighborhoods around them. And through collaboration with community based organizations, businesses and colleges to offer students real-world projects that make learning more relevant and engaging, they build connections that can open the door to future opportunities. The community schools model holds in its core both research-proven methods and hard-won local insight from community members about what is most needed locally. Many towns and cities across the country are already implementing a community schools strategy, and many more are planning to. The Partnership for the Future of Learning recently released a “Community Schools Playbook,” a comprehensive step-by-step guide to establishing community schools that you can pick up and get started with today. Join us for a lively discussion about community schools — both in theory and practice.

School Safety Video for School Lockdown Emergencies
School Safe helps keep students and staff safer in the event of a lockdown emergency. It is a simple device that installed on a classroom door allows the door to be quickly and easily secured from inside the classroom during a lockdown. In the event of a school lockdown most schools do not have the facility to lock a classroom door from inside the room. Typically, in an emergency situation, the teacher has to find their keys, go into the hall and lock the door, putting themselves and their students at risk of exposure, then come back into the room and shut the door locking themselves in. At the same time they have to get their students into a safe location in the room and cover any windows. This a lot of time and is potentially dangerous. School Safe minimizes the risk of exposure by allowing the door to be closed and locked at all times while still allowing ingress and egress without the need of a key. In an emergency simply pull School Safe down and the door latches. This takes only seconds and secures the room quickly and efficiently. School Safe is very affordable and easy to install by school maintenance or custodial staff. To learn more watch our ordering and installation videos on our web site.

El Kilombo, Durham, NC: Toward a Just City
Help us raise $10,000 by November 30, 2012 by donating at indiegogo.com/ajustcity WHO WE ARE: El Kilombo Intergaláctico is a community organization made up of migrants, students, working class residents, and people of color in Durham, NC. We opened the doors of our community center on May 1st, 2006 as a neighborhood social space and program center. We started free programs -- youth and adult education programs, health and legal clinics, a weekly dinner, neighborhood festivals and more -- proposed and created by residents to support our community's general well-being. Over the past six years we have grown beyond our space to create a community garden that provides healthy food and an outdoor community space, employment cooperatives that provide stable and dignified work, and a low-income housing cooperative through which we have acquired, renovated, and collectively manage housing for nine low-income families (and we are expanding!). We have done all of this on a shoe-string budget and with no paid staff. Through thousands of hours of community labor, we are working together to build a community and a city based in equality and cooperation. Although we've built a strong community through the center and its programs, we've also experienced directly the effects of 'urban revitalization' as it has displaced many neighborhood residents - all low-income people of color living in the city center. The financial crisis has also disproportionately affected our community, with cuts in social services, rising unemployment, and defunding or privatization of public housing and public schools. OUR VISION: We believe that to fight the disparate effects of both development and crisis on low-income communities of color, we must build, from the ground up, our communities' capacity for self-determination, spaces "where everything that is done for us is done by us." Help us raise $10,000 by November 30, 2012 by donating at indiegogo.com/ajustcity

City Hall This Week Episode 187
DTV8's "City Hall This Week" hosted by Senior Public Affairs Specialist Amy Blalock, will feature the following highlights and other topics of interest. Durham Updates City Code Regulating Dangerous Weapons Durham's city code regulating the discharge and possession of dangerous weapons has been updated. The City Council approved the changes because some of the previous regulations conflicted with state law, making them unenforceable. At the same time, some authority to regulate firearms and other dangerous weapons within the city was not being recognized. City Attorney Patrick Baker explains more about why the changes were needed. City Council Adopts 2013-2014 Budget Guidelines The City administration now has guidelines in place to serve as a blueprint for the development of the 2013-2014 budget. Because the City's revenue is only projected to grow slightly next year, the City Council says increases in spending must continue to be limited. Through the guidelines, the Council is directing the City Manager to develop a budget that limits increases to what is needed to accommodate population growth and cost factors. It also clearly identifies funding requirements driven by state and federal mandates and major city initiatives that support Durham's Strategic Plan. City Council Provides Financial Support for Redevelopment of Whitted School As part of the Southside revitalization effort, the City is doing its part to help redevelop the Whitted School. The County is repurposing the building so that it will provide both affordable senior housing and a pre-kindergarten facility. To help with that effort, the City will provide $500,000 in construction and permanent financing at an interest rate not exceeding 2 percent. The building is expected to open sometime in 2015. City Accepting Applications for Durham Youth Commission Youth who want a voice in their City's government are invited to apply to serve on next year's Durham Youth Commission. The commission is open to 9th-12th graders, and members commit to serve a one-year term. Senior Community Relations Coordinator with the City's Office on Youth, explains how the Commission helps develop leadership skills as well as represent Durham's young people in local government.

School's Dormitory & Pool House - Abandoned 2001
School's Out Forever - A Dormitory & Pool house explored at an Abandoned Independent Boarding School, Lately a college, that i recently visited in February 2015. The property has sat derelict, slowly decaying away & awaiting redevelopment since December 10th 2001. The main house & former stables are Listed grade 2 properties. The boarding school for girls, at South Park was opened c 1930 by a Miss Mulliner. Its numbers grew and other large houses were acquired to house the girls, namely Durgates Lodge, Aston House, and Wigram. In the 1980's the Legat Ballet School joined the establishment and in the early 1990's the College was amalgamated with Micklefield School from Seaford. In 1997 it had a further change and then became known as Bellerbys College. Pupils from the School have in the past taken part in village life. They have helped with bell ringing and senior pupils ran a Sunday School for twenty years. It was a common sight to see the girls walking in a crocodile to church every Sunday morning. During the Second World War, when the Girl Guides were not able to camp under canvas, Miss Gowdie the headmistress kindly allowed the First and Second Guides Companies to hold their summer camp at Aston House, now known as Beech Hill. The girls slept in the house and used the grounds and the swimming pool by day. Many local children had cause to be grateful as this is where many of them learnt to swim... (info from village history website). The Dormitory building showed the usual signs that the metal thieves had been busy at some point, before or during the on-site security being present, it is not known?. I was surprised by the amount of clothes pegs to the size of the two changing rooms for the swimming pool, the student class size must have been quite small. Sorry if it appears i'm in a hurry...my camera battery was getting low & i was trying to get all the remaining out-buildings explored before it died completely, which i did. although i missed a couple of areas which could be worth a return visit at some point in the future... maybe?
