Re: “Greyhound station moving from downtown Raleigh to make way for development

The article gives short shrift to Raleigh City bus service available to the new bus station. The writer notes that " CAT hopes to run 15-minute service downtown.". Raleigh's Route 1, which stops in front of the building, runs 19 hours a day (4:30 am to 12:05 am) already with 15-minute headways 6 hours per day and 30 minute headways most of the remainder. There are 42 city buses a day running from the new bus station location to downtown each day. I don't mean to minimize the inconvenience of the move, however.

Re: “4-year terms for Raleigh City Council? Mayor McFarlane and Councilor Baldwin go another round.

Actually the current system dates from 1972, not 1947. 1972 was when then councilmember Michael Boyd, dissatisfied with the 1947 system where all council members were elected at-large and the council chose the Mayor, tried to get the council to change the system and when that failed he circulated a petition and get the necessary 5,000 signature that forced a referendum, where the voters adopted the current system. That referendum law is still in effect -Gerry Cohen

Re: “2012 Primary Voting Guide

how about a box listing the early voting sites in Wake/Durham/Orange rather than force your readers to search the web for the info?

Re: “Meet 22-year-old Lee Storrow, your Chapel Hill town councilman

excellent story. Lee ran a great campaign. He even called me in June for campaign tips and historical insights and I haven't lived in Chapel Hill since before Lee was born. I raised $1109.60 when I was elected to the Chapel Hill Town Council at age 23 in 1973. -Gerry Cohen

Re: “Light or commuter rail?

excellent story, tho fact checking I would point out that the 11:45 Raleigh to Charlotte train originates in Raleigh, it is the 4:50 pm train that starts in New York.
