The official 2019 every-other-week recycling schedule, in case you didn’t get it in the mail, or you lost it or your dog ate it
Warning No. 1: Risk of bottoming out on Tate Street
The alleyway running from the 100 block of Tate Street to McIver looks innocent enough, but when entering from Tate Street, watch out. This car bottomed out on the sidewalk Friday morning, requiring a tow truck to rescue it. The driver said he had driven up from McIver before and gotten out onto to Tate with no problem. He wasn’t the first driver this has happened to. Don’t take anything for granted there.
News from Tate Street: A non-pizza restaurant is coming
It turns out there actually is one type of restaurant that hasn’t been tried on Tate Street: dumplings. The upfitting of the former University Laundry location, next to China Wok, appears to be nearly complete for the opening of May Way Dumplings. The restaurant looks to be a Greensboro location for a shop in Winston-Salem’s Reynolda Village.
For a limited time only: The ’60s come back to the Weatherspoon
The Weatherspoon’s contribution to UNCG’s yearlong look at the 1960s is a lively exhibition featuring a large sample of the museum’s collection of works by Andy Warhol, Diane Arbus and Larry Clark, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg, among others. “1960s: A Survey of the Decade” will be up until February 17, and it’s a terrific example of why the WAM is considered one of the leading museums of modern and contemporary art in the Southeast. A separate exhibit features Warhol’s prints, Polaroids and photographs, also from the museum’s collection.
Another current exhibition, “Dread & Delight: Fairy Tales in an Anxious World,” also is worth a long look.
Warning No. 2: Parking tickets are no joke
It’s not too unusual to see a car get the boot for unpaid parking tickets, but this scofflaw apparently had enough to merit the parking-enforcement version of double-secret probation.
Be advised: There aren’t enough parking-enforcement officers to ticket every culprit, but they do come around reasonably often. And when they’ve had enough of you, they will boot you.

A group of MBA students at UNCG are working on a plan to revitalize the Tate Street business district. They’re seeking feedback from Tate Street customers and nearby neighborhoods. It would be very helpful to them if you could fill out this online survey. It’s short; I filled it out in less than five minutes.
Becky Paterson of Sister’s Jewelry and Gifts initiated the project with the help of Reggie Delahanty of the City of Greensboro Economic Development office and the Bryan School of Business and Economics. It’s independent of UNCG’s planning for a Visual and Performing Arts Millennial Campus, which is already taking shape on Tate Street.

Double Oaks event Oct. 19 to benefit Rett Syndrome research and child of longtime College Hill resident Josie Clark-Tripodo
Two new dog-bag stations have been put up in College Hill. They’re at the corner of South Mendenhall Street and Rankin Place, in front of the apartments at 200 S. Mendenhall, and on Jackson Street between Spring Garden Street and Morehead Avenue in front of 406 Jackson Street. Neighborhood pedestrians and dog walkers can thank neighbors Wes Gilbert, Clara Kelly and Lyddan Pawlowski for installing the new stations.
The two new locations bring the total to four in College Hill. The others are at Springdale Park, on Spring Garden Street near Springdale Court, and on the pergola at the corner of South Mendenhall and Walker Avenue.
The College Hill Neighborhood Association cordially invites all of the neighborhood’s dog walkers to make the fullest use possible of these facilities.
James “Dorn” Yeattes, 56, of Tate Street, died Thursday at his home. Dorn worked as a self-employed mechanic. He also was a gardener and sold produce at the weekly farmers’ market at Elam and Walker avenues. Survivors include his brother, Jeff Yeattes, and his wife, Karen, of Tate Street.
Funeral services will be held on Monday at 2 p.m. at Peace United Church of Christ. Burial will follow at Greenhill Cemetery in Greensboro. The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the church.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to Peace United Church of Christ, 2714 W. Market Street, Greensboro, NC 27403, “or in memory of Dorn, take time to do a good deed for someone.” Click here for more information.
Spartan Open Pantry seeking donations of food and/or money to help feed homeless and hungry students at UNCG
Each year many new and returning Spartans are coming from families who are experiencing challenging economic times. This is presenting unique challenges for many of our Spartans that are trying to do well in school, “fit in,” and figure out what their future will look like. … Without support systems in place, these students, many of whom prefer to remain hidden during hard times, are facing these challenges alone while struggling to provide for their own livelihood.
— the UNCG Dean of Students office
We rarely think of undergraduates as poor, hungry or homeless, but there are low-income students who struggle to get by. The Spartan Open Pantry at UNCG helps provide food for these students and some staff members, and it needs support from the community.
Donations can be brought to the Associated Campus Ministries building, adjacent to the Walker Avenue Parking Deck. Monetary contributions can be made with checks written to the Wesley-Luther Campus Ministry, ACM Center, UNC Greensboro, 500 Stirling Street, Greensboro NC, 27403.
The pantry’s current specific needs include:
- Dry pastas
- Canned pasta sauce (no glass, please)
- Canned meat
- Canned fruits
- Hot cereals such as oatmeal and granola
- Any feminine hygiene products
Two items the pantry has plenty of right now are canned beans and corn.
The pantry is run by Wesley-Luther. It’s located at College Place United Methodist Church at Tate and Spring Garden streets. It’s part of a program called Partners Assisting the Homeless & Hungry Spartan, operated by the UNCG Dean of Students Office.
