 Please go read Richard Oppel’s story about an absolute miscarriage of justice in the original trial of Leon Brown and Henry McCollum.
It is great that they are finally out after 30 years in prison, but the fact they were ever there at all is a disgrace.

For the last few years, a group of friends and I have been working to get a free, public concrete skatepark built in Pittsboro, NC. We have raised money through hook and crook, fundraisers of all types, community events, etc. etc. etc. Due to those efforts, the town has given us land, but we have to raise the cash to build the park. Progress has been made.
Tonight, we will hold another fundraiser at the art gallery owned by my wife. 6 months ago, we bought 50 blank skateboards, sent them out to 50 artists, local and national, who were willing to donate their time and skill to help us get this park built. The boards will be auctioned off, with all proceeds going to the park fund. 
As an added bonus, The Mountain Goats, aka John Darnielle (pictured above), will play a short set to help us get people in the door and eyes on the boards. 
All details here
See most of the boards here
I cannot thank John, and all those who have helped us in any way enough for their efforts to see this through. After 25 years skateboarding, it still blows my mind to see what a group of like minded individuals can get done when they put their minds to it. We have always fought for a common goal and even now when skateboarding has grown to proportions beyond belief, those who have made it a true part of their life know that it is only through hard work and community effort that things get done.
Thank you, hope to see you all tonight.
