::Editor Resigns From Independent Weekly

By Richard Saunders, The Raleigh Chronicle
Thursday, August 16, 2007

RALEIGH - Richard Hart, the editor of the Independent Weekly newspaper in Durham, has resigned from the free alternative publication that focuses on entertainment news and community activism events in the Triangle.

According to the daily News & Observer newspaper, Hart had worked at the daily paper as an editor before joining the weekly Independent in 2003, where he served as editor.

Under Hart's leadership, the paper highlighted many environmental issues in the Triangle such as the pollution in the Neuse River and Progress Energy's plans to store high level nuclear waste at the Shearon Harris nuclear plant in Chatham County.

In a column that recently appeared in the Independent, Hart did not disclose any details about why he was leaving.

In a column printed on August 1st in the Independent, Hart joked "This is my last column as editor of the Independent. After five years, 265 issues and countless calls and e-mails from flacks, fans, African lotteries and annoyed readers, it's time to move on."

Hart said that he was proud of his work at the Independent, particularly the paper's coverage of Hurricane Katrina and its effects on the poor citizens around Louisiana and Mississippi.  Hart is originally from New Orleans.

"I'm proud of keeping my hometown of New Orleans on people's minds from commissioning a frighteningly prescient story in 2004 about FEMA called "A Disaster Waiting to Happen" to periodic reports from a local Katrina refugee," said Hart in his goodbye column.

Hart also appeared on local television as a commentator on the NCSpin television show to provide liberal views on politics to counter the more conservative members of the panel. He also appeared on other local talk shows in the Triangle to comment on local issues.

The Independent Weekly would not comment on why Hart was leaving the newspaper and would not provide a forwarding phone number for Hart over the telephone.

The Independent Weekly is headquarted in Durham.

"So thanks to all at the Indy and the flacks, fans and annoyed readers who made the job so rewarding. Now it's time to goI think I just won an African lottery," added Hart at the end of his column.  . ::
