In case you missed it, here is some of what made headlines in yesterday's Durham News.

Read Jim Wise's story here.
TRAFFIC TIE-UP: The NC 54 corridor can be a bear at rush hour. Tonight the Durham City Council will weigh a development that proposes to put 365 apartments near the intersection with Barbee Road. Jim has that story, too, here.
HOW TO HELP LINCOLN: Find out how to help the residents facing the shutdown of Lincoln Apartments. Housing for New Hope is coordinating aid, from cash to mattresses. Get the details in this story and in the infobox in the column just to the right of the story here.
Jim is all over the Sunday paper. For a moving essay on what makes a house a home for the holidays, or anytime, read his My View essay. Find out who's giving the commencement address at Duke, who's tromping in the waters of Ellerbe Creek (and why) and why size does matter ... when it comes to syringes and the fight against AIDS.
