Pre-register teen voters

This is what happens when politics and ideology overrule common sense. In their zeal to "reform" the voting system in North Carolina, Republican lawmakers pushed through a change that has created confusion, more work and wasted money.

Going back in time at American Tobacco

At its height, The American Tobacco Company was the largest cigarette producer in the world. After it closed up shop in Durham in 1987, the campus of historic buildings sat empty for many years before being brought back to life as one of the largest historic preservation projects in North Carolina’s history. The end result is a home-run of adaptive reuse architecture.

Volunteer of the Week

Duke University’s decision to accept Chris Geary as an undergraduate turned out to be a great gift to the Durham community. As a volunteer for Partners for Youth, Chris has gone far past the required commitment of three hours a week spent tutoring struggling students who want to go to college. He not only tutored his student, but also helped him take the ACT, successfully apply to N.C. Central University, and navigate the transition from high school to college.
