blue bayou

Apparently, the Blue Bayou is in a bit of a financial jam and will have to close unless they can raise $4,000. Here's the note we got, unfortunately too late to put in the paper:
 Hello! Well the time has come for the Blue Bayou to say Goodbye unless we can come up with $4000. in donations to stay open. We have some great acts this week trying to help us out:

 I hope the community can come together to save the Bayou. It's definitely an institution in town!

paper this week

What beautiful weather we've been having! I hope everyone's enjoying it as much as I have been. Yesterday, I was even lucky enough to open the doors and windows in our place and enjoy the afternoon sunshine.

This weekend, I hope to see some of you at the town's farmers markets. I'm planning on hitting both of them, and I'll be out taking pictures at the Hillsborough Farmers Market's Easter events.

But now, onto what's in this week's paper:
  • THREE CHARGED IN TEEN'S DEATH. Three Hillsborough men are facing first-degree murder charges in the death of 19-year-old Paylor James Daniels.
  • ACTING POLICE CHIEF NAMED. Lt. Davis Trimmer will assume the command of the town police department April 2 at 5:01 p.m. until a permanent replacement for  Chief Birkhead can be found.
  • BIRDHEAD: 'I CAN'T DO BOTH.' The decision to step down as Hillsborough's police chief to concentrate on his hid for sheriff was one Clarence Birkhead has toyed around with since last month.
  • 'THEN IT JUST GOT LOUDER.' A tornado touched down along Bushy  Creek Road last week.
  • STAFF DECIDES BOOK'S FATE IN MIDDLE SCHOOLS. School officials previously misspoke about a decision made by a committee on the fate of 'My Sister's Keeper.'
  • MEETING FOCUSES ON COMING TOGETHER, MOVING FORWARD. Hillsborough and northern Orange County residents came together Saturday, March 27, for a  meeting to discuss the  future of their community and to talk about ways  they can be more involved.
  • Plus, Educator of the Week, Illusions of the King, Panthers  get their first win of the season, Eno River Farmers Market Easter photos and more!
