Here's a look at today's local headlines:
FOOD TRUCKS RULE: Oh, wait a minute, that was supposed to be "Food Truck Rules." But Durham does love its meals on wheels. Read Jim Wise's preview of tomorrow night's public information meeting about the city's proposed new regs.
DANCE, DANCE, DANCE: The American Dance Festival opened its new $1.5 million studios on Broad Street this week. Katelyn Ferral reports the opening number was like a party in the streets.
NEW DSS DIRECTOR: The county has named a new director of the Department of Social Services. Michael Becketts of Baltimore replaces Geri Robinson (Gail Perry served in the interim), who is suing the county over her firing of a year ago.
CITY PLANS STRATEGY: Jim also reports today on how the City Council is not waiting for Southern Durham Development's, and its friends in the legislature's next move. The council closed the doors at a special meeting last week but hopes to have something drafted by September.
We've got more pics from Watts-Hillandale (still enjoying that neighborhood awesome-ness), Bob Wilson's take on the 751 South, er, water and sewer extension bill, and your letters. Tell us in 300 words or less what you think about food trucks, or anything else, at email@example.com.
Stay cool, and thanks for reading,
