“I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike.” See if you can get that earworm outta your head NOW.
Cary and its citizens have always been commited to the environment – and now we have proof. Certifiable proof.
March has traditionally been the time when I write about “Women’s History” – our struggle for the vote and women’s suffrage, or our lack of representation in government or lacking a seat at the table of our private sector companies. It makes sense to do this, given it’s Women’s History Month.

When was the last time you looked at a paper map to get somewhere? A long time ago, I know. I remember ordering the AAA TripTiks not so long ago – plotting the route we would take while on the road to a vacation. Ok, so now I feel old.
Last night I had the opportunity to see a thought provoking documentary by Zach Galifianakis called, “Democracy for Sale.” Yeah, I know, you don’t think of Zach of The Hangover Movie fame as being the that kind of guy, but I have to say I was impressed.

Since I’ve been on Council and for a number of years before that, the Cary Town Council and Town Staff have taken a few days every year to pause and plan for the upcoming year.
