You can find all the election results, including Orange County approving a half-cent sales tax for light rail and improved bus service, on www.chapelhillnews.com and www.newsobserver.com.
Here's a look at what else we have today:
TRASH TALK: Looks like Orange County (Chapel Hill, anyway) could get a transfer station after all, and it appears heading to Millhouse Road not far from where former CH Mayor Kevin Foy proposed it some years back. Get the details here.
BOYS AND GIRLS: Eight years in the making and $250,000 later, supporters of a Boys and Girls Club broke ground this weekend on the project site in the Pine Knolls neighborhood. That's Jaylin Sanders taking a turn on the ceremonial shovel. Read my story and see more photos here.
RENT PROTEST: Collins Crossing, formerly Abbey Court and before that Old Well, is home to some of our community's newest residents, Latino and ethnic Karen refugees from Myanmar (Burma). Now a new owner is making changes. Find out why some are worried their days at the complex could be numbered in Sarah Mansur's story here.
Viv Taylor finds a church in today's My View, Debbie Meyer looks at the Preservation Society's look back, and a group of UNC biologists says Weaver Street Market is feeding the hype against genetically modified plants. All that and letters from Pittsboro to Cedar Grove.
Now is a good time to send letters. With the elections and transit vote over, the mailbag is nearly empty. Tell us what's on your mind -- Obey Creek? the transfer station? -- at firstname.lastname@example.org.
