Since December 26 when the Durham Housing Authority (DHA) was first notified of elevated carbon monoxide levels at McDougald Terrace Apartments, close to 900 residents have been evacuated and placed in hotels. At least nine residents have been hospitalized for carbon monoxide poisoning, and subsequent investigation has revealed abhorrent sewage, carbon monoxide leaks, and many failed federal inspections at the public housing complex. These revelations have prompted statements from local Representative David Price, the mayor of Durham Steve Schewel, and CEO of the housing authority Anthony Scott. Despite Schewel's effort to silence their protests during a recent City Council meeting, McDougald Terrace residents made their justified anger clear: they have lived in hotels and eaten unsubstantial food for three weeks, away from all they own, and they refuse to bear the violent brunt displacement for longer than they need to.

The tragedy that happened in Calabasas, California, last Sunday left the basketball world shaken as the NBA family mourns the deaths of Kobe Bryant, Gianna Bryant and the other seven victims in the helicopter crash. The Blue Zone gives you a recap of some big news from former Blue Devils in this emotional week:
Anyone who knows me knows that I bear what some might describe as an alarming allegiance to Cleveland, Ohio, the city I call home.
