  • Deems May reply to Dr. Harmon

    August 18, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Dear Dr. Harmon, Your August 12 opinion published by in response to my feelings of Coach Davis’ firing, indicated that my letter “could not have hit further from the intended mark.” I must respectfully disagree by saying that if my letter elicited  combative responses from you and Mr. Chansky of Chapelboro fame, then the […]

  • Another T.W.O Cents Response to: "A Letter to Deems May"

    August 15, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    This T.W.O. Cents column is in response to “A Letter to Deems May.” Dear Dr. Harmon:   You first make the argument that “Reasonable People” care about the University and not what Deems does or who he is. By making that argument that way, you assume that anyone that has a different point of view must […]

  • In Response to "A Letter to Deems May"

    August 14, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    I, too, am a graduate of UNC. I find Dr. Harmon’s letter to Deems May interesting, at best, and honestly he makes a couple of legitimate points. My question to the good Dr. would be why he fails to mention that Butch Davis, as far as I know, was mentioned nowhere in the NCAA findings? […]

  • A Letter to Deems May

    August 12, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Dear Deems,   Your August 01 letter published by could not have been further from the intended mark. The subject should have been the University of North Carolina, but it was Deems May.   Your letter included the pronouns “I” 37 times, “my” 11 times and “me” 7 times, for a total of 55 self-references […]

  • Don't Drive Angry

    August 9, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    When I first moved to Carrboro in 2003 I was so impressed by this community’s patience and decorum on the roads.  Having moved from Washington DC, where I was born and raised, I was accustomed to a far more aggressive scene.  I was used to seeing things like: people leaning on their horns, screaming out […]

  • Thorp and the Football Coach

    August 3, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    Prior to last Wednesday evening, I was one among a group of friends who had struggled, deeply troubled with the drumbeat of news about the UNC football program.  It was not about the gridiron prospects of the coming season, but about rule-breaking of various sorts that was a growing threat to UNC’s reputation as an […]

  • Our Towing Economy

    Guest Column by Mike Harris I usually ride my bike around town, but on Wednesday July 20, the bike needed some adjustments, so I had to strap it to the back of my Honda Accord and drive up Franklin to The Bicycle Chain. After turning left into the parking lot between Vespa and Noodles and […]

  • Stop Speed Bumps!

    July 21, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    Guest Column by Eric Plow In spite of a bad economy, dwindling tax revenues, and unmanageable fiscal debt, cities and towns all over the US have passed bonds (translation: borrowing money) to install thousands of speed bumps, along with 3-way and 4-way stop signs, in an effort to appease neighborhood activists who want to inconvenience anyone […]

  • Why I Support Butch Davis… and the Right to Other Opinions

    July 19, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    Guest Column by Barry Leffler Butch Davis should remain the Head Football Coach at Carolina.   Until it is proven Davis knew about John Blake and his egregious wrongdoings… the coach should stay right where he is leading the great young men who represent our hometown university.   I have known Butch Davis and reported […]
