Here's a look at today's local headlines:
POLICE OFFICER SHOT: Still no word on the condition of the Durham police officer who was shot in the line of duty yesterday. His name was not released, but he was alert when taken to the hospital. This stiory broke too late for today's DN, but appears online and in the N&O. (Link here)
SOUTHERN DURHAM END RUN: Rebuffed by the City Council, the developers of 751 South are now talking to Chatham County about providing water to their proposed 1,300 home project near Jordan Lake. The irony? The water from Chatham would originate in Durham. Read correspondent Matt Goad's story. (Link here)
ART FOR DIABETES: If you've never done a Third Friday ArtWalk, now's the time. Correspondent Debbie Meyer reports how an exhibit opening Friday at Susan Frosch's Basement gallery on Chapel Hill Street was inspired by a friend's son living with the disease. (Link here.)
Do you drive into Chapel Hill each day? If you take NC 54 you've probably seen the giant window posters of Dean Smith and Michael Jordan. They're raising a ruckus in Chapel Hill (well, mostly a ruckus of strong support). If you'd like to add your two cents, join the conversation on my Facebook page (link here) and you could see your comments in a future edition of the newspaper.
