Re: “Franklin Street at a crossroads

To the comment about parking: I've lived in Chapel Hill for over a decade now. I have never once failed to find parking downtown, though I prefer to take the bus when I can anyway. That said, it can be tricky to find if you don't know all of the many, many places to look. This resource helps: http://www.parkonthehill.com/

Re: “Pain in the Ass fails to make short list for I-40/440 construction name

No, but I think we should hold onto "Royal Goat Fuck" for a future project. I'm sure there will be adequate opportunity to use it for future efforts as well.

Re: “For Gov: Dalton, maybe Foxx & Bowles; Miller? Not Cowell.

Cal Cunningham didn't run against Dalton four years ago. Dan Besse, Hampton Dellinger, and Pat Smathers did. Maybe one of those three is interested in Lt. Governor again?

Re: “Fashionable giving

I know I've mentioned this elsewhere, but another great way to give to IFC this holiday season (as well as three other great area nonprofit causes) is to shop Weaver Street Market's Hope for the Holidays gift program. Each year Weaver Street Market works with local charities to raise money throughout the month of December. When you purchase any of our designated Hope For the Holidays products, we donate to several worthy causes. This year's organizations include El Futuro (http://www.elfuturo-nc.org), the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service (http://www.ifcweb.org/), PLANT @ Breeze Farm (a local incubator program for future farmers), and our own Cooperative Community Fund (an endowment to support sustainable local nonprofit initiatives). For this year's gift items list, please see the link below. There are many locally made gift products, from cards to soap to some of our own specialty breads, wines from NC vineyards, and other locally made foods; as well as fairly trade gifts from afar including African gift baskets, teas, chocolates, and fine coffees. http://www.weaverstreetmarket.coop/images/pdf/hfhlist.pdf

Re: “Now Serving Gift Guide 2008

One other holiday idea... I'm partial, since I work here, but I couldn't let this article go by without promoting Weaver Street Market's Hope for the Holidays gift program.

Re: “Elections 2007: Cakewalks and catfights

Just a friendly note, Will Raymond didn't run a 2003 campaign. You must've meant 2005. :)
