A Chapel Hill native who works at Weaver Street Realty in Carrboro, Don quipped: "You only have to be here three years and then you're a native."
He explained how Carrboro used to be rough and tumble and has evolved over the years. "Franklin Street and Chapel Hill was the way Carrboro is now. Hippie then...If my parents found out I was in Carrboro, I'd be in trouble."
What does he like about living here today? "I love that they are two towns acting as one."
Don described how he grew up with local muralist Michael Brown. He said his image appears in the "Parade of Humanity" mural on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. "I'm the one with the bucket with the hole...It's a bit of a left-handed compliment."
