What people are talking about 7/3

And then there were two. The Republican site selection committee has dwindled the list down to Cleveland, Ohio, and Dallas for its 2016 Republican National Convention. “As we move closer to choosing a host for our convention, I’m more confident than ever that we’ll have an outstanding partner to showcase our party and our Republican nominee in 2016,” chairperson Enid Mickelsen said.

• Workers in Durham should have smiles on their faces. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Durham’s average wages grew the 14th fastest in the nation to an average of $1,255 weekly – the highest among North Carolina’s nine counties. Wake County’s wages grew a measly 0.5 percent to $984 per week. Of course, if you don’t make as much, I’m sorry.

• Safety first. Last month Raleigh City Council approved a contract with the Downtown Raleigh Alliance to provide security patrols for parking decks and parking lots. The nine safety ambassadors will be on duty Monday thru Friday, 6 a.m. to midnight; Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to midnight; with some additional hours at specific areas. Call 368-7962.

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July, and leave the fireworks to the pros!
