On October 31, the North Carolina General Assembly passed  a bill aimed to finance storm recovery costs.

When I was thirteen, I failed my hearing test. I had faced problems with my ears before—recurrent ear infections led to a childhood ear surgery, as well as some reduced hearing ability. But this time, something was different.

'He responded well': Matthew Hurt stars in Duke men's basketball's win against Winthrop

(11/30/19 6:52am)

Anyone familiar with the Duke men's basketball program has likely heard of head coach Mike Krzyzewski’s concept of the 'next play'—that is, no matter what just happened, be it good or bad, what's most important is what you do next. It is a critical facet of Krzyzewski's coaching philosophy and something he has instilled in generations of players dating back to his first few years in Durham in the 1980s.
