  1. IT IS GREAT YOU ARE NOW INCLUDING THE CRIME BLOTTER! PLEASE DO KEEP THIS IN AS A FEATURE!

  2. Could you please report some education news?
    Samuel Ding, 6th grader, Smith middle school, he was qualified for AIME, American Invitational Math Competition. He is the only 6th grader qualified for AIME. Only top 2.5% students from AMC 10 American Math competition qualified AIME. Most of AIME qualifier are 9th grader or 10 th grader. He is the only 6 grader in Chapel hill. Last 3 years, in Chapel hill, no 6th grader qualified AIME.

  3. This is some really good work!
