Looking back

Here's what The Indy was writing about the week of Oct. 15:

5 years ago: Chris Hammond detailed Seth Elliot's life as the only Triangle's only bike messenger and his contributions to Critical Mass, a cycling awareness group that met a surprisingly mixed response in Chapel Hill. Carolina Tarwheels Bicycling Club president Don Belk said he didn't feel an awareness group was needed in a cycle-conscious area like Chapel Hill and might antagonize tolerant car drivers.

10 years ago: Barry Yeoman investigated trade schools where government-sponsored training is negligible at best and fraudulent at worst. These schools fool poverty-stricken people into signing up and applying for financial aid--ultimately leaving them with a useless diploma and crippling student loans.

20 years ago: Steve Schewel analyzed the political implications of an increase in the number of black mayoral candidates in the state's largest cities.
