Cary, NC – Guy Noir needed a raincoat Saturday night as Garrison Keillor brought A Prairie Home Companion to Booth Amphitheatre.
The sky drizzled all evening with umbrellas periodically opening and closing across the great lawn like a field full of moths. But the weather couldn’t dampen the fun for the packed house, there to hear Keillor’s witty and nostalgic show. Read more
Cary, NC- A few years ago, Ralph Ashworth wondered aloud: “Wouldn’t it be nice if Cary had a co-op gallery?” He had seen co-op galleries on his travels and thought the concept made sense in the growing community he called home. Read more
Cary, NC- Continuing our Hidden Giants series, here’s another Cary company quietly growing like kudzu. It’s called Lonesource and it sells, well, everything for business.
I met with Bradley King, President and CEO, to find out how they started their “one source” concept. Read more

Morrisville, North Carolina – Here in Cary, we are fortunate to have a good neighbor in the Town of Morrisville. The folks of Morrisville are fortunate to have a Mayor who is “in it” for the good of the town she loves.
We were greeted warmly by Mayor Holcombe in Morrisville’s beautiful Council Chambers on Thursday of last week. Read more
Cary, NC – I can’t say I’ve ever been convinced that a politician was simply in politics to do the “right thing” until I met Mayor Weinbrecht.
He’s like the other people in your neighborhood. He works a full-time job as a programmer (at SAS), is devoted to his family and his church, volunteers for activities in the community and loves Cary.
When talking with him, his sincerity is obvious: he just wants Cary to thrive. His words aren’t contrived, there are no “talking points” and he is forthcoming with his opinions. The Mayor responded to my e-mail request to interview him in 11 minutes. Read more
About the Hunt
The Hunt is an all day event and will test your knowledge of Cary – food, history, shopping, sports and much more. It will also test your ability to strategize.
Along the way, you’ll see places you didn’t know exist. You’ll feel the thrill of competition. Most of all, the Cary Scavenger Hunt is an adventure in your own backyard.
The 2013 Hunt will start on the Page-Walker Center in downtown Cary. Each team will get a clue book. Clues are assigned a point value and cover topics including:
- Cary Food
- Cary History
- Cary Business
- Cary Parks
- Cary Art
- Lots more
Trust us – no one will get all the clues. So pick your spots, analyze the clues and be strategic with your time.
The Hunt is a competition between teams in two categories:
- Adult Teams
- Family Teams
All teams can be two to four members. Get all the details on the Sign Up page.
We’ll all gather at Page-Walker at 9 a.m. on September 21, 2013. Teams will receive their clue packets and have until 1:30 p.m. to solve the clues and get back to the starting point.
Cary, N.C. – We met with Cary Town Manager Ben Shivar on Friday. We sat down in the conference room in the Administration Building on Academy Street.
It was “casual Friday” and staff was scurrying around in jeans. Ben had on a sports jacket and button down. I teased him about it and he chuckled.
Ben is a pleasant, thoughtful man. “Tell me about your background”, I said. “Well, I have 33 years in local government service,” he said. We joked about whether or not that makes him qualified for the job and then we talked for an hour and a half. Read more
