Raleigh man faces murder charges after fatal shooting

RALEIGH, N.C. — A man will appear in court Monday for his connection with Sunday's fatal shooting of a 20-year-old man.

Around 2:30 a.m., officers with the Raleigh Police Department located a gunshot victim, Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas, in the 3500 block of Single Leaf Lane in Raleigh.

Thomas was transported to WakeMed, where he died as a result of his injuries.



RALEIGH -- Saint Augustine’s University is negotiating to acquire St. Paul’s College in Virginia, a financially troubled college that is fighting to hold on to its accreditation.

The executive committees of both historically black institutions of higher learning met Tuesday to discuss the acquisition of Saint Paul’s, located in Lawrenceville, Va. St. Aug’s, located near downtown Raleigh, has agreed to manage St. Paul’s beginning Jan. 1 with the eventual goal of acquiring the school and creating a campus at the Virginia location.

The deal would come as Saint Paul’s has lost enrollment after losing its accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, which had raised questions about the school’s financial stability. The decision meant students wouldn’t be eligible for federal and state aid so the college won an injunction in federal court to keep its accreditation.

Trustees of St. Paul’s College, stripped of its accreditation earlier this summer by the Southern Association of Colleges and School (SACS), voted Thursday to reopen the institution next month and offer a full 2012-2013 school year of classes and programs as it works to resolve SACS’ issues with the college.
The decision by the small, rural central Virginia college, boosted by a district federal court ruling Wednesday temporarily halting the effect of the SACS decision, came as officials at St. Paul’s insisted they want no fight with SACS, only an opportunity to demonstrate the institution has complied with the litany of SACS concerns that led the accrediting body to place St. Paul’s on probation two years ago.
“We will have class on campus this fall and next spring,” said an enthusiastic Dr. Claud Flythe, interim president and chief executive officer of St. Paul’s, a college founded in the 1800s by the Episcopal Church.


St. Agnes Hospital served the city's black residents for decades from its location near the St. Augustine's College campus.

The hospital, which also served as a training ground for hundreds of nurses and operated a medical school for a quarter of a century, closed in 1961, when Wake Med opened.

Now, developer Billie Redmond is partnering with Rex Healthcare to build a primary and urgent care center on the St. Agnes site.

General Discussion Forum / Question GE Profile vs Frigidaire Gallery

Hey folks I need your opinion

I'm looking to outfit my kitchen with the following

Glass Electric Cooktop
Wall Oven (to be installed below cooktop)
Over the Range Microwave

What are you opinions with the GE Profile vs Frigidaire Gallery Series?

I have heard folks say that Frigidaire sucks but I've had regular GE in the past.

Elizabeth City State’s newest director of bands wants the Vikings to march in a new direction: toward membership levels the band hasn’t seen since the 1970s.

In 1977, the program had about 150 band members. Since then, the number has fluctuated over the years but has failed to again reach that benchmark. Currently, there are about 60 active band members.

“It’s been inconsistent over the past seven or eight years with membership,” said Tomisha Brock, who was named ECSU’s new director of bands in December. “I think the largest they had in that timeframe was about 80 to 90 members.”

What is going on at DEL State?

The students of Delaware State University will gather in front of the campus administration building to protest against the actions of their very own administration. They are demanding that they have more African American tenured professors and stop the constant decrease of admitted African American students. It is understood that by the start of the 2012 fall semester, Delaware State University will be less than 50 percent black. The students of this historically black institution find this unacceptable and believe the culture of their university is fading away.

Given the fact that the Supreme Court is now hearing a case that could potentially end affirmative action, we wonder what will happen to Blacks who live in Delaware and the greater mid-Atlantic region if Delaware State turns white like West Virginia and Bluefield State. Where will they be able to go to school if segregation is legally reinstated? The passing of this law will affect the collegial education and other aspects of American life where minorities are affected

General Discussion Forum / Dr. Yancy is back @ SHAW U
« on: August 15, 2011, 10:33:06 AM »

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Shaw University Board of Trustees Chairman Willie Gary announced Monday that Dorothy Cowser Yancy will return for a second stint as interim university president next month.

The announcement comes after Dr. Irma McClaurin resigned the presidency last Tuesday.

Yancy is the former president of Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte. She served as interim president before McClaurin was named to the post.

McClaurun served as the university's 15th president for less than a year following a September 2010 appointment. Sources tell ABC11 that her relationships with faculty and staff quickly soured when she fired several professors soon after taking control.
