Re: “Taking on the school cafeteria

My teenaged daughter and I agree that a better option for high schools would be a modern token-operated automat, a wall of hot and cold dishes back-loaded from a kitchen. They were popular in colleges years ago. Here's a photo: http://theautomat.com/automat_2010.jpg

Never underestimate kids. Give them fresh food options and they will eat.

BTW, the cafeteria ladies at ECHHS are the best.

Re: “Chapel Hill consultant says free parking isn't free, or a good idea

No such thing as free valet parking when the hand that takes your keys extends to receive a tip as well.

Re: “Haven faces state scrutiny—again

How many helpers does Ms. Spear have?
Instead of trying to sabotage her efforts, why not mobilize the community service spirit of local teenagers? Many have service hour requirements for h.s. graduation and this might be a fulfilling means to that end.

Re: “A rural row over Maple View Farm

Bah humbug! Cancel the parties, the music, and the happy singing of small children.
