    Regarding the Aug. 16 news story “S.E. Raleigh still seeks fix”: As an auditor of local governments and nonprofits for almost three decades, I think I can speak with some authority as to the nonprofit Southeast Raleigh Assembly. Critics complained that SERA had abandoned its core mission...

    Beverley S. Clark: Weak county leadership

    Regarding the Aug. 19 news article “Wake’s millionth expected Friday”: “Gee whiz, Andy, Wake County’s got a million residents!” Barney Fife would hardly recognize the place. Sadly, today they’d probably never make it to the YMCA on Hillsborough Street...

    Eleanor Kinnaird: UNC deflection

    Thank you for the Aug. 7 editorial “Paper chase” on the overreaction to the discovery of minor plagiarism in Mary Willingham’s master’s thesis that was most likely sloppiness. It was not only Willingham’s sloppiness but also her adviser’s.

    Maria Saunders: Hospitals, not prisons, for mentally ill
