@MayorMarkK SINGS “Proud Mary”

As we reported earlier, today is our last DSI Witness News show of the year. We’re taking a much-needed break this holiday season, to recharge our creative energy. And hopefully you’ve enjoyed the bits we did this week. But we figured, since today is our last show for a while, we really need to send the year out with something memorable. And so, for the next three minutes, please enjoy the REAL Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt, with his rendition of that old classic, “Proud Mary.”  Take it away, Mayor Kleinschmidt!

Please welcome, once again, self-proclaimed Carrboro citizen par excellence extraordinaire, Ms. Aurora Joplin.
