Coming Sunday in The Chapel Hill News

Here's a look at some stories coming in Sunday's paper.

HOME BREAK-INS: We've got a story in Saturday's N&O on Chapel Hill's year-end crime stats (not much change but home break-ins spiked.) Read more about crime and safety concerns in Chapel Hill and in Hillsborough. And tell Associate Editor Dave Hart whether you "Agree or Disagree" with our editorial on public safety priorities.

FIGHTING FIRE WITH FELT: After Sunday, you may never look at Chapel Hill Fire Chief Dan Jones the same way. Find out what the Fire Department, the Chapel Hill Museum and a bunch of puppets in a garbage can are doing to teach kids fire safety. 

GETTING ORGANIZED: Have you heard of the Orange County Organizing Committee? 400 people showed up for a  meeting on Rogers Road a few months ago. On Tuesday night, an 80-member leaders committee started getting down to work. Learn why Church of Recconciliation pastor Mark Davidson says it's the most exciting model for community organizing in his 27 years of ministry.

Letter writers sound off on butts, that Meadowmont office building and the feeding frenzy swirling around John Edwards. And a reader offers his proposal for how to pay for a freestanding Carrboro library. All that and more, and it's free.
