Porch Quote 

What should we name after him?
"It just seems ludicrous to me to name something after him that he fought so hard."
--Former Raleigh City Council member Oliver Williams on U.S. Rep. Walter Jones' bill to rename Falls Lake for former U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms. Enterprising N&O reporter Barbara Barrett did some research and found out that in the beginning, Helms opposed spending money for parks around the lake. Which raises the question -- what would it be appropriate to name after Helms? Send your ideas to editors@indyweek.com and write "Helms naming idea" in the subject box.
