Postscripts: Fit to be tied in Chapel Hill

Fit to be tied at Chapel HillBenn Wineka, a senior at the University of North Carolina, has started a Coach Roy Williams Tie Tracker as part of a basketball blog for Tar Heel fans.
Wineka and his brother, Sam, and their friend Matt Clements, started “The Rafters” several weeks ago as “A Biased UNC Basketball Blog for Tar Heel Fans.”
Clements and Sam Wineka are 2008 UNC graduates now living in Washington, D.C., with blog contributions from Benn Wineka back in Chapel Hill. All three are graduates of West Rowan High School.
The Tie Tracker caught the eye of ESPN.go.com Page 2 columnist Paul Lukas, who mentioned it in his Nov. 12 post, “Spying on Roy Williams,” and linked the story to The Rafters.
The Rafters bloggers also are contributing UNC items to bustersports.com. “The Rafters” can be viewed at therafters.wordpress.com.
With his tracker, Benn Wineka hopes to document every Roy Williams game tie this season and keep a running record of how the Tar Heels play with each tie pattern.
Paisley, anyone?
Busy days for DA
When Rowan County District Attorney Bill Kenerly announced in July that he would retire at the end of 2010, he didn’t know he’d be leading the criminal investigation of former Gov. Mike Easley’s campaign.
The Wake County district attorney, Colon Willoughby Jr., asked Kenerly to take the case because Willoughby had too many ties to Easley. Kenerly said yes.
So how does the Rowan DA plan to work special prosecutor duties into his already-full schedule?
“It is my plan to continue to handle the murders, and add the ex-Gov to my caseload,” Kenerly said in a recent e-mail to the Post.
He was planning to take four to five murder cases to trial before retiring, and three of those cases are already prepared, he said.
“If the special prosecutor thing results in a trial, I hope it will be during 2010. Otherwise I plan to retire as announced, then continue with the special prosecution if needed.
“Still early and confusing.”
