My final preparations for The Great Saunter, my epic 32-mile walk around Manhattan island, which I agreed to do because I actually thought I was agreeing to The Great Flaunter, an event in which I could flaunt my knowledge of old Alfred Hitchcock movies:
The confirmation of Loretta Lynch as attorney general of the United States is a historic one for the fact of her being the first African-American woman AG, but it’s also historic because she grew up here in Durham. Born in Greensboro, she moved here as a kid.

Q. You blew it in your answer to a person who lost insurance and went off Cymbalta. You suggested ways to manage depression without medication. Would you suggest someone “manage” diabetes without medication?
After close consultation with my family, my advisers and the magic eight-ball, I have decided to place my hat in the ring for the presidency of the United States.
The memory of Antonio Dixon has a chance to live on beyond his family, friends and neighborhood kids. His mom is working to build a scholarship in his name for students at Durham Technical Community College.
Downtown Durham has enjoyed outdoor sculpture placed at strategic locations for almost a year. Those who walk past them regularly may already feel they belong, and the occasional visitor, especially to the Durham Performing Arts Center or the American Tobacco complex has to believe these works of art indicate a city interested in the arts.

Begin with Line 7 (As everyone knows, Lines 1 through 6 are only for chumps) — Enter wages, salaries, tips, coins found in bottom of vending machines and the $5.02 check you just got for being a member of a class action lawsuit that you had no idea you were a member of. Attach Forms W2, 1099, 1099 E, 1099 R and W3 EZ, which isn’t.
This past week at the front desk of The Herald-Sun, a steady stream of people came in to buy copy after copy of newspapers celebrating the Duke University men’s basketball national championship. It’s the fifth national championship for Coach K, but you know that already. Even a certain player’s grandmother called to get extra copies.
My Frye boots, big, bulky and battered, the oldest living household survivor of the 1960s, passed away peacefully April 2, 2015 after a long period of increasing obsolescence and occasional embarrassment when I tried to put them on.
Celecoxib (Celebrex) is a kind of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) called a COX-2 inhibitor. Supposedly, it is less likely to cause gastrointestinal irritation and ulcers than classic NSAIDs such as diclofenac, ibuprofen and naproxen.
Standing in a crowd of hundreds outside Duke Chapel Friday as I reported on the annual Stations of the Cross, I noticed a boy about my son’s age playing with a rock. He accidentally dropped it on the ground a few times, the same way my kid would have, then picked it back up, passing it back and forth from one hand to the other as he played with it.
The Neil Offen Column yesterday posted strong first quarter results that breezed past Wall Street’s extremely low expectations and even surprised some family members who haven’t laughed in months. In a conference call with analysts, Neil Offen Column CEO Neil Offen, citing those results, told Wall Street, “nana nana boo boo and so’s your old man.”
Invitations to artists come for a variety of reasons: There is a call to spotlight landscapes or portraits or abstractions. The group at the Ackland Museum Store gallery, however, has studios at Durham’s Golden Belt complex, and that is the common thread that brings them to Chapel Hill.

I related to the episode because I, too, (ahem, cough) am facing down 40 this year. I’ve still got several months left of my 30s, but the hill beckons me over.
