  • “Very Interesting”: the ESP Show on “Bruce-gate”

    Thursday morning, I boogied down to Carrboro’s low-powered radio co-op, WCOM, to join with Carrboro Mayor Mark Chilton for a modified two-step with the boys of the ESP Show. With practiced professionalism, Geoff Gilson and the dangerous “Mad Dog” Aaron assembled a nice overview of the recent Weaver St. Mkt. Lawn public access issue. Having […]

    Now that the initial uproar over Carr Mill Mall’s management’s rather strained decision to implement new restrictions on public access to Weaver Street Market Lawn [MAP] has quieted down a bit, I thought I’d put together a quick recap covering the last couple weeks of letters, posts and comments. The Wiki Roots wiki has a […]

Few comments I hadn’t heard before: “Milian said Thomas’ dancing set a bad example; other performers would think they could use the […]

  • Licensed for the Lawn: We can dance if we want to…

    Ruby (of OrangePolitics fame) asked earlier today I have only one question: when are we holding the first dance-in on the lawn? Oh, and when are the owners and/or board or WSM going to take some leadership on this issue? Looks like soon, very soon.

  • Weaver St. Market: Licensed for the Lawn!

    Caught this young scofflaw just a short time after the private press conference announcing WSM’s new policy of “licensing” lawn performers. The, short notice, private press event, held by Ruffin Slater, general manager of the Weaver St. Market (WSM) co-op, and Nathan Milian, property manager of Carr Mill mall appears to have been short on […]
