Billy Graham is heading home.A hearse carrying the body of the Charlotte-born evangelist is part of a 10-car motorcade that departed late morning Saturday from Asheville’s Billy Graham Training Center at the Cove. It should get to Charlotte around 2:20 p.m., although that time is fluid. And at about 3 p.m., the procession is scheduled to arrive at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte.That’s where funeral and burial services will be held next Friday for the man who started life on a dairy farm near what is now Park Road Shopping Center and went on to become a globe-trotting preacher of the Gospel and a pastor to several U.S. presidents.To many in western North Carolina, Graham, 99, who died last Wednesday morning at his longtime home in Montreat, was a neighbor. Some of them rose early for the chance to be among the first Graham admirers to pay their respects.Hundreds of people lined the streets of downtown Black Mountain Saturday morning as Graham left his beloved Blue Ridge Mountains haven for the last time.Only the sounds of clicking cell phones, the whir of two helicopters circling overhead and a few “thank yous” broke the silence as a procession of two black Cadillac hearses and a half-dozen black SUVs moved down East State Street toward Interstate 40.“Millions of people would love to be here right now but can’t,” a woman in the crowd whispered to her companions as a State Highway Patrol escort of eight motorcycles came into view. “And here we are, just (living) 15 minutes away. That’s huge, ain’t it?”The gathering crowd held mostly local residents, but Ann Lyons had flown in from Texas for the procession. Her minister grandfather had known Graham, and the family has deep roots in Montreat, the small town in a mountain cove where the Grahams had lived for more than 60 years.“Montreat’s a special place,” Lyons said. “You can still feel that small-town feeling.”Lindsay Higgins, on the other hand, had lived just a few doors down from Graham since moving to Montreat from San Diego three years ago, seeking a quieter place to raise her two children. She never got to meet the famous evangelist as his health declined, but said it was “special just knowing he was nearby.“It’s very sad,” said Higgins, 33. “You can definitely feel it in Montreat. Just knowing that he’s not here — there aren’t enough people like him in the world, so it’s really sad.”Lynda Davis, 69, a former housekeeper for Graham gospel singer George Beverly Shea, sat with a hand-lettered, neon-yellow sign beside her folding chair. “Well done thou good and faithful servant,” it said of the man Davis calls “our Mr. Billy.”Like so many local people, Davis has a treasured memory of the Grahams. Hers dates to 20-some years ago, when she was asked to the Graham home to sing at a funeral service for their longtime groundskeeper.“I felt like I was standing on hallowed ground — I could hardly sing,” she said. “I sang ‘How Beautiful Heaven Must Be’ — barely got it out.”Davis was struck by how h

Pilot Vlog 162. Flying the Cessna Citation XLS private jet to charlotte, Nc. During this flight we have the ATC communications recorded and cockpit video of the takeoff and landings. The sidestep is part of an instrument approach clearance where the pilot is cleared for an approach to one runway but, to land on a parallel runway once it’s in sight. If you were on a visual approach, you would just request the other runway and be cleared for a visual approach to that runway, if available. Just before the hand-off to Charlotte Tower we were cleared for the visual approach to 36L. So, we should have just request 36R.

One of the first questions you’ll need to address when you begin to create a website is which colors to choose for the design. Not surprisingly, a website’s color palette is one of the first things that site visitors notice, which is why it has such a fundamental part in the overall design process.
Colors influence a website’s look and style, but also play a significant role in that site’s performance. In other words, the colors you choose for your website can impact its success in terms of visit duration, returning users, click rates, or sales.
So how do we proceed with choosing the perfect colors for a professional website? This is where color theory comes into play. Color theory is an important concept in art and design.
At the heart of color theory is the Color Wheel. I’m sure you’ve seen it before. It looks like this. [show in VG]
The color wheel is an illustrated organization of colors, based on the relationship between them. The base of the wheel is comprised of the three primary colors – red, blue and yellow. Added between those are the secondary colors – green, orange and purple.
In the elementary color wheel, which has 12 colors, the additional six tertiary colors are added, formed as a mix of the primary and secondary ones – yellow-green, green-blue, blue-purple, purple-red, red-orange, orange-yellow. Also common is the 24 hues color wheel, which has a more elaborate breakdown.
The color wheel is divided into two general categories: warm colors, which revolve around yellow, orange and red – including most brown hues – and on the opposite side are the cool colors, revolving around blue, green and purple – including most gray hues.
There’s no right or wrong in choosing warm or cool colors. The choice depends on the effect you want to achieve. Warm colors are considered to be stimulating, and convey action and vitality. Cool colors, on the other hand, are considered to be tranquil, and have a calming effect.
Whether you choose to work only with cool or warm colors depends on your brand identity and on the atmosphere you want to create on your site. Of course, combining warm with cool is also a possibility.
Successful color combinations follow a set of color schemes, most of which are based on the position of the colors on the wheel itself. For instance:
Complementary Scheme: This formula takes two colors that are positioned exactly opposite from each other on the color wheel, like red with green, or yellow and purple. Using two contrasting colors together makes your design more lively. To create a full scheme, add a neutral color to the complementary duo. Beige, light browns, light grays, black or white.
Analogous Scheme: In this formula, you’ll use three colors that are adjacent to each other on the wheel, like orange, yellow-orange and yellow, or purple, purple-blue and blue. Any three colors that sit next to each on the wheel harmonize well, because of their closeness.
Color Triad: Ready to use some geometry? The color triad scheme takes any three colors on the wheel that are of an equal distance from each other, forming a perfect equilateral triangle. Possible combinations would be yellow-green, orange-red and purple-blue, or yellow-orange, red-purple and blue-green. This scheme tends to be very vibrant. You’ll want to create a balance where one of the colors dominates, and the other two are supporting colors.
Split Complementary Scheme: With this formula, start by choosing one color, and adding the two colors that sit right next to its complementary color (creating an isosceles triangle). Possible combinations here would be red, yellow-green and blue-green, or purple, yellow-orange and yellow-green. This scheme offers a refined contrast, one that isn’t quite so bold as the regular complementary one.
Tetradic Scheme: Here you will be forming a scheme from two pairs of complementary colors, making a rectangle on your wheel. For instance, you could combine yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-purple and red-purple. This scheme is particularly rich. You don’t want color-chaos on your website, so pick one color to set the tone, and the rest to add a nuance.
Monochromatic Scheme: As the name implies, this scheme utilizes different hues of the same color. You could use a wide spectrum that includes the darkest and lightest hues of that color or narrow it down by using the tones around either the dark or the light area. Monochromatic color schemes have a clean and minimalist visual impact…
