Readers of Durham’s Herald-Sun had a chance this week to read a guest column from Carolina Journal Radio co-host Donna Martinez. It focused on the plight of a Chapel Hill businessman who’s likely to lose his livelihood because of the details of the state’s new smoking ban. Cape Fear Business News picked up a column from Karen Palasek, the John Locke Foundation’s director of educational and academic programs. Palasek explored the impact of money on new rules regarding access to mammograms. Meanwhile, the Jefferson Post recently featured a column from Melissa Mitchell, who discussed the reasons she enjoys managing the John Locke Foundation office. The Greensboro News & Record‘s lead editorial writer, Doug Clark, also cited the N.C. History Project this week in a blog post focusing on rogues from North Carolina’s past.
