Two Tar Heel Retirements
This morning, longtime Raleigh mayor Charles Meeker announced that he will not be running for re-election. Meeker’s retirement could signal the start of a new political era for North Carolina’s rapidly-growing capital city. In other retirement news, Woody Durham, “The Voice of the Tar Heels,” stepped down as Carolina’s play-by-play announcer after 40 years of calling UNC’s football and basketball games.
