To all Caldwell supporters and the Caldwell campaign team, a heartfelt Thank You!
On June 5, I had the opportunity to speak to the board of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools. As on that very night 70 years before, ordinary members of our armed forces prepared to board ships, planes and gliders to invade Normandy on D-Day and do some extraordinary things we now honor.
Writers make the case for candidates for office in May 6 primary.
It's going to be a long and grinding campaign for governor. The election is more than two and a half years away, but the sniping started last year. It's going to get worse.
“We’ve got a new library in our front yard.”
My grandchildren's report should not have surprised me. These kids and their parents have chickens and bees in their backyard and a host of projects that sometimes make me wish I could be a child again, just to grow up again alongside of them.

Michelle Gardner’s letter (Jan. 26) discussed solar energy investment on the grounds of sustainability. Some simple math shows that investment in solar energy need not be solely about the environment.
The way we are using our energy, including the means and the rate at which we are doing so, is far too unsustainable for our modern lives. I truly hope that community investors in Chapel Hill will see the urgent need for new solar development projects and do what is truly best for their community.
It has come to my attention that Susan Gladin has been writing columns for the Chapel Hill Herald for 15 years. That is quite an accomplishment.
