The Commentators: Daria Barazandeh

Commentary by Daria Barazandeh As a resident of Chapel Hill and consumer of OWASA water who is deeply concerned about the effects of the commonly accepted practice of putting a toxic chemical in our water supply known as hydrofluorosilicic acid, or more commonly called fluoride, I have launched a local movement to have it stopped.

Adopt-a-Pet: Rudy

Described as a “stately gentleman,” Rudy is a chesnut-colored eight year old dog with the heart of a puppy and the manners of an adult companion. Athletic and a big fan of play, Rudy enjoys his time outside, especially with a human friend. Especially fond of tug-of-war and walking/running around town, he’s the kind of dog who likes to get to know his surroundings. While he was here at the station, he calmly and carefully investigated the area and then came right back for some scratches behind the ears. He clearly knows when it’s playtime (and boy, does he...
