Re: “Wake Commissioners and School Board Members Haven’t Gotten Over This Year’s Budget Fight

I expect the elected leadership of Wake County to move through the 'bumps and cuts' of personality quickly and to get to the business of providing a quality education to Wake public school children--my own grandchildren among them. Should the NCGA be 'flouted' in that process, so be it.

Re: “Parting Shots: A Column Ends, But the Struggle Continues

Done well, Bob Geary. I'll buy at the next PR opportunity.

Re: “Some questions that need answers as another attempt at Wake transit planning approaches

I can hear your angst in every line written. The strategy must first integrate our present Triangle assets (bus) and then move onto rail. Commuter rail from Johnston County through Wake County to Orange and Durham Counties makes the most sense given today's density, although a spur to the airport and the RTP must be completed as a part of this larger project. Light rail is realistically a decade (and billions of dollars) away. As for concern about a half-cent sales tax, nothing has changed. Let the people of Wake County decide.

Re: “A vision for downtown Raleigh that includes water

Arthur B, the reason Raleigh acquired the bowling alley (which has been razed and the impervious parking removed) along with the Milner Inn was to restore the natural floodplain of the Pigeon House Branch Creek. As the new Downtown Remote Operations Facility is built just north of I-440, all of that impervious surface will be removed as well. More important than a San Antonio-styled river walk is the health of the PHBC--the most polluted waterway in Raleigh. As the Capital Boulevard Corridor is improved, the floodplain can be used for recreation (soccer fields, etc). The Corridor vision includes separate lighted greenway paths for bikes and pedestrians. It's no SA River Walk--just a clean, beautiful park-like entrance to our wonderful downtown.
