Here's a look at tomorrow's headlines:
TAXING TIMES: Orange Tax Revolt is calling on the county commissioners to rescind the 2009 tax revaluation. At least three North Carolina counties have done it. We spoke to one of them, and to two local legal experts who tell us why Orange County should not follow suit.
DENSITY REDUX: The Chapel Hill Town Council will talk again Monday about whether to extend high density zoning outside downtown. Then they'll talk about Ayden Court, where Carol Ann Zinn says she can either build a lot of (relatively) affordable, environmentally friendly townhouses (if she gets the density) or a lot fewer high-end luxury homes. Read Jesse James DeConto's preview of how the meeting is shaping up.
PEDERSEN'S PREDICAMENT: Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools Superintendent Neil Pedersen wrote a budget assuming no local funding increase. It included $900,000 in cuts just to keep pace with rising costs and student enrollment. Now, Colin Campbell reports, the superintendent and school board must cut deeper as county and state governments grappled with the recession.
A UNC expert tells us how the university is fighting global warming, Jesse reports on the latest news in high school athlete Atlas Fraley's death, and reader Jim Postma says it's time for a Proposition 13-like movement in Orange County.
