After talking about her career in education, test scores, students and other such matters, Williams thought it odd that L’Homme didn’t want to take a tour of the school.

Northwood rips Chapel Hill in Big Eight tussle

“We tried to come back from their opening and we just played flat,” Marsh said. “This was not one of our better games. It was a series of things that led to everything going in their favor. Northwood was just the better team tonight and it showed.”

Northwood got the opening kickoff and marched to the Chapel Hill 10 before stalling and settling for a 27-yard field goal by Tyler Whitaker.

But after that defensive stand by the Tigers, everything else went awry.

Where stand the state’s two Jims?

As the 2014 election cycle draws to a close, few states have drawn so much national attention as North Carolina, thanks to the tight Hagan-Tillis race, the dramatic turn in state government from blue to red, and our status as a presidential swing state in 2008 and 2012.

For longtime residents of the state, however, national attention is nothing new.

REVIEW: ‘A Will for the Woods’ leaves a legacy

“A Will for the Woods,” the documentary that won the Audience Award and Environmental Award at the 2013 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, is returning to Durham this weekend for screenings at the Full Frame Theater at American Tobacco Campus. On the weekend of Halloween and All Saints’ Day, the film reminds viewers of what kind of legacy they want to leave on the earth.

“A Will for the Woods” is a moving, thought-provoking look at the idea of green burials, a growing trend across the country for those who wish to be buried in a more traditional, environmentally friendly way. There’s no machine to fill in the grave, people with shovels do that. There’s no metal coffin, but rather reclaimed wood. There’s no embalming fluid. No usual cemetery, but one that preserves nature.
