DSI Witness News presents our own version of Women in Business featuring a woman who, sometimes does stuff, in our community: AURORA JOPLIN.
It’s been a fun week, but there’s one piece of business left to resolve. A couple months ago, Morganton Mayor Mel Cohen wrote a letter criticizing the Town Council for allegedly letting downtown slip into decay. Mayor Kleinschmidt responded with his own letter, but due to the fact that Morganton is still using the Pony Express to get its mail, Mayor Cohen never saw that response until just this week. And in the interest of keeping the debate going, we’ve invited him back up to Chapel Hill to offer his thoughts.
Chapel Hill mayor Mark Kleinschmidt is with us all week long, and so far we’ve had a lot of fun. But many of you have written in wondering: why does Mayor Kleinschmidt keep playing himself? Wouldn’t it be more fun if he got to play a wacky character too? Well, your wish is our command. And joining me to help make that happen, is UNC’s environmental mascot, Woody Biomass.
Mark Kleinschmidt came into the studio… and then all of a sudden, Mark Kleinschmidt came into the studio. It was a battle of Who’s Who.
When Kit unexpectedly leaves the studio, our uncredited announcer is left to deliver the April 1st episode all by himself. Bill Strom, Erskine Bowles, and Aurora Joplin all make “appearances.” Kit FitzSimons, Our Uncredited Announcer.
