Here's a look at today's Durham headlines:

DEACON MURDER: Testimony began Tuesday in the murder trial of Tory Nelson, who was just 18 when authorities say he brutally stabbed 89-year-old church deacon Charles Davis and stole his car. Jesse James DeConto has the story in today's N&O.  

In today's Durham News:

CRIME PREDICTIONS REBUFFED: Sheriff's Maj. Paul Martin (left) predicts a race war in Durham and crime spreading to the suburbs. The problem? The stats don't back it up, and even people who follow crime say "there's a disconnect." Jesse has that story too.

BUSES TO BIKES: You know the old bus station just off the downtown loop? (It was replaced by the fine Freelon-designs transit hub off Pettigrew.) Randolph Lawrence of Durham thinks the city should turn it into a bike shelter, complete with showers and changing rooms. (Tell us what you want to see happen to the old bus station at editor@nando.com.) Jim Wise reports.    

GOT A FEELING? The Rhine center studies things that go bump in the night and then some.  This Friday night the sort of Duke affiliated paranormal research center honors a former FBI agent who made a career following hunches and intuition. Jim has that story too.

Vianey Martinez wonders how well the Durham schools are preparing her for college. Alex O'Connell reports a construction program for girls at Southern High is spreading out of state. D.G. Martin misses Reynolds Price and Lisa Price says the Arizona shooting present a new opportunity for sensible gun control. A jam-packed issue. Tell us what's on your mind on these and any other issues with a letter to the editor at editor@nando.com.

And thanks for reading,

Mark Schultz
