In these positions he built a record of leadership and accomplishment.

Leadership and experience are Kleinschmidt’s strengths

TO THE EDITOR: I have known Mark Kleinschmidt for more than 10 years. He is a seasoned leader and consensus builder.

Endorsements show that Kleinschmidt is best choice

TO THE EDITOR:I am a Chatham County resident now, but I lived in Chapel Hill for several years. Chapel Hill is a unique place. It has many natural areas as well as an upbeat metropolitan feel.

Way down on MLK, visual art stands out

At first glance you might think UNC’s visual arts students get the short end of the stick. You’d be wrong. Sure, they have to buy their own paint and clay, and their art lab is farther down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard than Carolina North.In fact, as a musician whose biggest inconvenience is having to re-rack stands after orchestra, I originally felt vicariously enraged for my fellow artists-in-arms when I heard where their art lab was.

Yates not the only one to blame for football woes

TO THE EDITOR:We disagree with the popular notion that quarterback T.J. Yates deserves the brunt of the criticism of our offensive football team. While Yates is certainly not going to win the Heisman trophy, he is currently our best option at QB. If he were not, Coach Davis would play someone else. It’s important to keep in mind that our receivers this year are very inexperienced, with the exception of Greg Little, who is having his best year yet. Several of Yates’ incompletions have been the result of receivers cutting their routes short.
