My notes from the Airport meeting at White Cross

I attended the meeting at the White Cross community center, in Southern Orange County. There was a good turnout of people. The community center is a building housing gymnasium / basketball court and space surrounding it for spectators.  The room was full of attendees.  

The group that arranged the meeting is called “Preserve Rural Orange”; they are just getting organized to oppose the airport.  They were handing out ‘No Airport” signs and bumper stickers at the meeting and asking for donations to offset the cost of printing.

Obama is messing with us.

Many of OP readers stood in lines this morning aiming to obtain tickets for the Rally next week in Carrboro. Looks like he’s asking us to do it all over again tomorrow in many of the same places for a rally occurring Monday evening at the Smith Center.

Locally, tickets will be obtainable again at the Moorhead Planetarium and also at the Carrboro town hall. Will I get in line again tomorrow? Probably. I am such a sucker.
