Historical accuracy - yes! I've said it before and I'll say it again: anyone who thinks removing confederate memorials is a good idea is just as foolish as anyone who thinks waiving a confederate flag is a good idea. The flag is clearly and irrevocably awash in racism. It was *created* to fly in battle in a war that was about slavery; it was *created* to rally troops to fight to keep slavery alive in the South. It was, pure and simple, in support of the wrong side of history; a Bad Cause.
The Chapel Hill Town Council was to continue its discussion this evening about how to fund the extension of sewer service to the Historic Rogers Road Neighborhood, in its first meeting of the 2014-2015 session. However, town staff is again recommending a continuation of the public hearing.

Did you know that visitor spending in Chapel Hill and Orange County accounts for over $160 million in economic impact ever year? Tourism is a clean business that creates jobs and tax revenue that helps keep our county the amazing place it is. I was appointed to represent the Town Council on the Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitor's Bureau at the start of this year, and am committed to increasing the economic impact from tourism over this year.
To celebrate the great visitor and tourist attractions in Orange County, I'm headed on a stay-cation over Memorial Day weekend. I'll be packing my bag on Friday and won't return until Monday afternoon, but I'll never be more than 25 miles away from my home. I'm spending Friday night in Carrboro, will be visiting Hillsborough and Northern Orange on Saturday, and will be finishing up in the southern part of heaven on Sunday.
Our theme this year is "Weaving Communities: histories, homes, lives." We'll be featuring oral history performances on Northside and Rogers Rd history, presenting community honors for all this year's successes, and providing a preview of our new history exhibit. And of course, we will be enjoying kids' games and festivities, music, dancing, and of course, delicious food (support from Mama Dips, Vimala's, Bread and Butter, Open Eye, and our grillmaster Calvin).
Come celebrate the end of the school year, the coming of spring, and the community we are ALL a part of Saturday, May 3rd!
Whether you can come for the entire event or just 20 minutes. come join us. This is an incredible gathering of folks from all corners of Chapel Hill/Carrboro, from the university, and beyond. We have so much to be thankful for, and so much to celebrate.
Thanks to each and every one of you, for your contributions to the Center and the community overall. We hope to see you here!
