Here's a look at today's local headlines:
SCHOOL FUNDING SHIFT: Durham County Voters approved money for a new high school when they approved a bond in 2007. So why do school officials now want to spend the money on something else? Virginia Bridges reports.
OCCUPY'S NEXT PHASE: The crowds are gone, but the Occupiers are still at work, making connections, learning from one another and others, and preparing for what comes next. Monica Chen reports on what the Durham-Chapel Hill area's 99 percent are up to.
Alex Mitchell tells his side of the 751 South story (we expect some letters on that), Carlton Koonce goes looking for his roots (and there's a talk at the main library on Monday you may want to check out ) and Matthew Brown, a beloved drummer and staple of the local music scene, has died at 42.
I caught "Marley" yesterday, now playing at the Carolina and Chapel Hill's Chelsea. If you've already seen The Avengers or comic book fantasy's not your style, it's a riveting, rollicking look at the reggae icon, a creative force cut short at 36. Highly recommended.
