'That Championship Season of 1965' recalled

Sunday was a day of many celebrations – it was a reunion among friends and former teammates and rivals, as well as the kickoff event for a week set to commemorate the 50th anniversary of “That Championship Season of 1965.” In 1965, schools were still segregated. The athletic teams from black high schools were overseen by the North Carolina High School Athletic Conference, which disbanded in 1969 shortly after desegregation. But 1965 was special – the Triangle picked up championship wins from local schools in NCHSAC divisions 1-A through 4-A.

JUSTISE IS SERVED: Freshman star leads No. 4 Duke rout of Orange

Quinn Cook uncharacteristically missed 3-pointers and Jahlil Okafor’s free throw woes continued Saturday night. Still, it was no problem for No. 4 Duke because freshman Justise Winslow filled in the gaps. Winslow scored a season-high 23 points, his second time scoring 20 or more in the last three games, as the Blue Devils notched their ninth consecutive win by beating Syracuse 73-54 in ACC basketball at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Local calendar decisions best

It is an example of the absurdity of North Carolina’s law on local, public school calendars that it specifically notes that “There are no educational purpose waivers for exemption of the opening and/or closing dates.” Of course. Why should educational purposes have any bearing on decisions involving our schools?

Giving up for Lent: No one size fits all

Lent is a time during the Christian year when many Christians note daily how God repetitively saves us.  Lent can be a time for individual, careful reflection about where and when we are cruel to ourselves and where and when we are deeply mistaken about ourselves.  It can be a time to inquire prayerfully about ways that a human life can become trapped in prosaic or original forms of evil.
