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

First, in today's N&O, staff writer Jim Wise reports on Tuesday's groundbreaking for the $48M Rolling Hill/-Southside redevelopment project just south of downtown (now being called just Southside by the city). Here is a link to that story posted yesterday on the N&O and DN websites.

Jim and I will sit in on an editorial board meeting at 1:30 p.m. today with Mayor Bill Bell and City Manager Tom Bonfield. It's a regular meeting held every couple of years to give the newspaper staff and city leaders a chance to talk about a range of issues. What questions would you ask the mayor and manager. Let us know at 919-932-2003 or editor@newsobserver.com or by commenting on this post.

And in today's Durham News:

INCENTIVES ON THE TABLE: Greenfire couldn't do it, so now a Kentucky firm wants to put a hotel in the old CCB/SunTust/Hill Building downtown. And they want $5M in city incentives and $2M from the county to do it. Read Jim's story to get the details. 

MODERN-DAY SLAVERY: We didn't tme it to coincide with this week's national spotlight, but today we begin a two-part look at what Triangle area groups are doing to fight the problem of human trafficking. Correspondent Amanda Keener has our report.  

$3.6 BILLION INVESTED: And on today's opinion page Michael Schoenfeld, chairman of the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce, says private investment in the Bull City over the past four years totals $3.6 billion. Find out why the chamber is bullish on the Bull City.
