The Carrboro Board of Aldermen will consider adding its voice next week to those calling for UNC to cut ties with Triangle radio station WRDU 106.1, which bills itself as “Rush Radio.”
The resolution will be discussed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Limbaugh sparked the controversy March 1 when he called Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and used other misogynistic language after she testified in support of President Barack Obama’s contraceptive health care coverage plan.
At least 10 major advertisers have pulled their support from Limbaugh’s show in response to the comments.
Chapel Hill Transit will provide shuttle service on its "Tar Heel Express" to and from the North Carolina-Virginia football game this Saturday.
Temporary road closures will take place between 6:30 and 10 a.m. Saturday, April 9, during the Tar Heel 10 Miler road race. The resulting altered traffic pattern will impact major roadways, including Cameron Avenue, Raleigh Street, Franklin Street and Raleigh Road.
Chapel Hill Transit (CHT) is advising its riders to expect possible schedule delays. CHT Saturday buses serving downtown Franklin Street and UNC campus area during this time may be detoured. While CHT will attempt to operate normal printed schedules on all routes, delays may occur. Riders should plan to travel after 10 a.m. to avoid possible schedule delays. For more information, please contact a CHT customer service representative at (919) 969-4900.
The Chapel Hill Police Department will have officers stationed at various intersections to guide motorists. The following information highlights plans along the race course.

Not your December's Barnes
North Carolina and Kentucky have changed significantly since the two met on Dec. 4 in Chapel Hill.
The Tar Heels won that one, 75-73, even though freshman forward Harrison Barnes did not play well.
In 25 minutes, Barnes scored 12 points but missed six of his 10 field-goal attempts, committed three turnovers and was limited to four rebounds.
Sometimes people ask you the darnedest things during interviews. For example, drummer Ollie Campesino of the Welsh band Los Campesinos! told me he's never been to North Carolina before; and he wanted to know what we call people here: "North Carolinians?"
"Sure," I said, "and sometimes also Tar Heels" -- a phrase he'd never heard before, which surprised me even though it shouldn't have. So I found myself trying to explain the meaning and origin of the term before I stopped and asked myself, Why am I running up this poor guy's overseas phone bill with this?
"Good to know," he said.
Anyway, if an extremely polite young man with a thick accent slips up and refers to the wrong person as a Tar Heel today, I hope the offended party will be kind. And for some chit-chat about the music of Los Campesinos! and their show here Friday night, check the interview. Here's what the tour's opening night in Baltimore looked like.
