New Yorkers migrating to Charlotte

New Yorkers migrating to Charlotte

ItalianAmericans from Brooklyn, AfricanAmericans from The Bronx and New Yorkers from the suburbs are flocking to the once sleepy town of Charlotte buoyed by big business like Bank of America and lots of Big Apple transplants.What has been dubbed the New York phenomenon swung into high gear around 2005, according to Erin Watkins, research director at the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce.There were 2,000 tax returns filed in Charlottes Mecklenburg County in 2009 by either individuals or married couples who filed in New York City or Long Island the year before, according to IRS data.The cost of living in New York is extremely high right now, while the cost of living in Charlotte is 93 percent 7 percent lower than national average where in New York City it is 140 percent, or 40 percent over the national average, Watkins said.Set designer and Brooklyn native Mike Patarote said that fleeing New York for Charlotte three years ago was the wisest decision of his life.Born in Bay Ridge, Patarote, 44, had worked in television for two decades creating props for Law and Order.His uncle, a staffer at Moodys, had been transferred to Charlotte 15 years ago, and Patarote frequently visited the burgeoning city.In the back of my mind, I always thought that it would be nice to move here someday, he said. But I didnt want to do it when I was retired I wanted to enjoy it while I was young.Patarote and his wife, Karen, a physical therapist, sold their threestory Midwood home in 2008 for $750,000, moved to the Tar Heel State without job prospects, and bought a fourbedroom, 3,000squarefoot home on a third of an acre with a pool and hot tub for $260,000.Karen Patarote found work in her field and her husband landed a gig with the Showtime program Homeland being filmed in Charlotte.The New York hankering for pizza is also being filled.There were very few people out here doing pizza like New Yorkers do it. All were chains, said former Huntington, LI, resident Keith Caminiti, 40, who along with his brother opened six Brooklynthemed pizzerias in the Charlotte area over 10 years. We filled a niche.Among the innovations they brought: pizza by slice for $1.95.It was easy to move, Caminiti said. I was young and I was just tired of never being able to save money, he said, citing the high cost of living with $3,000ayear car insurance and $9,000 property tax.Now, he pays just $3,000 a year in property taxes with his wife a Staten Island native he met in Charlotte and $850 for car insurance.And so many New Yorkers have relocated to the Charlotte area that Jersey City native Chris Pardo started a sports talk show on WAVO in Charlotte that deals solely with New York teams.When you have a halfmillion New Yorkers in the area, especially from Long Island, they want to talk sports, Pardo said. Its a huge population now..

Sometimes the answers aren nearly as complicated as we set them out to be. I found this to be particularly true when it comes to my son Andrew, who has autism.

The last several months have brought many changes for my little boy some good, like finally nailing potty training I can still hear the angels singing!, and some not so great, such as weight loss on an already tiny frame, and a general increase in his intolerance for the very loud, very intense, world around him.

We sitting in our living room, the four of us spread out in our respective spots on the couches, the lights dimmed and the television set turned to NBC, where it will stay programmed for the next two weeks.

It the Summer Olympics and our family has officially abandoned our usual TV line up in exchange for the opportunity to watch the world greatest athletes in action nonstop. There nothing quite as inspiring as witnessing their glory and defeat; there nothing as humbling as seeing the look in their eyes as they await the fate of their dreams, often just within or beyond their grasp by a margin of 100th of a second.

TAs and most PAs in line for pay boost Aug

TAs and most PAs in line for pay boost Aug

Teaching assistants and most project and program assistants at UWMadison will receive a 4.67 percent pay increase, bringing their compensation to a level comparable to the amount received by research assistants.

Provost Paul DeLuca says the pay boost will make the university more competitive in attracting the best TA/PA candidates.

UWMadison competes with other major universities for the best graduate students, DeLuca says. Graduate students contribute significantly to our research and teaching mission, and are vital to our ability to hire and retain the best faculty.

Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Darrell Bazzell says given the importance of attracting top graduate students, internal general purpose revenue resources will be reallocated to address the problem, along with federal research funding.

We realize this is a fairness issue and have been in discussions with graduate assistants about this situation for about a year, Bazzell says.

TAs and PAs have not received a raise since June 2009, and their compensation at UWMadison has been well below market levels. The average for UWMadison TAs was last among Big Ten schools for 201213, and nearly 14 percent below the Big Ten median. Among major research universities nationwide, UWMadison pay for TAs was 10 percent below the median.
