Re: “Statement from owners of Varsity Theater (yes, it’s closing tonight)

I am so saddened by this news. Franklin Street needs a revitalization. Devastating.

Re: “Where are Durham's billboards? Find them on the Indy's map

It is upsetting when I read list-serve notions that Durham would be better served if there were no billboards. Only in Durham do people hate billboards! In our current economy, how can anyone with common sense ever suggest eliminating jobs? Billboards foster jobs through the business they represnt. (those would be local businesses)The Durham community needs to keep in mind that all of the benefits that Fairway is proposing cost taxpayers absolutely nothing and increase Durham's tax base. And what do we get? A free Amber and Silver alert system, better looking billboards and more than a million dollars in free advertising space for non-profits and community messages. By the way Fairway is not adding any new billboards, they are only updating the ones they have. Under the law as it is now they can not even update their own billboards without aproval first. How ludicrous is that? So people who do not like the billboards the way they are now, you will like them better after Fairway fixes them up and makes them fit into the 21st century! Wake-up and smell the commerce billboards bring into Durham and even if you think they do not effect you, think again!
