The Independent Weekly 20th Anniversary

Here's what The Indy was writing about the week of March 12.

5 years ago: Mary-Russell Roberson's last piece in a series about urban sprawl in the Triangle explored what can be learned from Atlanta's mistakes. Apparently, we didn't learn too much--the Triangle was recently rated the 3rd most sprawling metro area in the country.

10 years ago: Jackie McNeil, Durham's newly sworn-in police chief, told Melinda Ruley about his plan to attack Durham's real and perceived crime problem by implementing community policing programs.

15 years ago: Barry Yeoman interviewed Pat Barry, Leon Dworsky, and Deborah Greenblatt about their experiences being Jewish in the South--being part of and separate from Southern culture.
