Good paper today.
PROBATION REFORM: Read two stories today on how our elected leaders are trying to fix the broken probation system. On the N&O front page read Joe Neff and Anne Blythe's story on what Gov. Perdue is promising. On the Durham News front page read Blythe again and learn what DA turned judge Jim Hardin is doing closer to home.
RE-ENTRY PROGRAMS: One way to keep probationers from comitting more crimes is to give them a job. Read Stan Chambers story and learn how, even in this economy, several programs in Durham County helping ex cons re-enter the workforce.
VIEWPOINTS: We're still getting e-mails on Pam Saulding's pit bull column. You'll have to wait until Wednesday to read those (or you can just sctoll down the Bull's Eye blog a bit). Today read columns by Melissa Rooney (citizens need transparency on Jordan Lake) and a counterpoint to last week's column on streetlights. Today Treyburn reader Shirley Lennon says they do too deter crime and her neighborhood wants them.
Thanks for your comments as we've taken the Durham News twice a week. Please keep the suggestions coming, either by posting comments on the Bull's Eye blog posts or e-mailing us at email@example.com.
Have a great weekend,
