Community message from Clarence Birkhead, Sheriff of Durham County

(02/18/23 5:00pm)

As gun violence continues to plague Durham, I am calling on the community to step in and help us prevent it. Now is the time to become change agents. As I travel across Durham County – be it speaking before a medical group treating victims for resulting physical and mental trauma, attending the riveting play at Hillside High School (“State of Urgency”), or being approached by a local citizen asking what we in law enforcement are doing – there are things we can all do.

Religio and the breach

(02/20/23 5:00am)

There is a breach in our society. A breach is a breaking, a gap, a hole, a divide in something that was once whole. I’m not sure how whole we’ve ever been as the human race, but the breach is on full display these days in inhumane violence in schools, malls, universities, and the streets. These acts of violence should cause us to tremble in the face of terror rather than numb us into doing nothing. Our hearts should be hurting and our souls aching. 

The more you know: Brower and O'Neill can be the catalysts for Duke men's lacrosse's bounce back season

(02/17/23 9:24pm)

Placing No. 8 in the Inside Lacrosse Preseason Poll, there have been high expectations and hopes for Duke coming into its 2023 spring season. Starting off hot with two resounding wins before a nail-biting 12-13 loss to Jacksonville, the Blue Devils have largely shown signs that the faith placed in them was not unfounded. To hope to exceed expectations and bring home an NCAA title for the first time since 2014, the Blue Devils put their trust behind two stars that were just placed on the Tewaaraton Award watch list. Senior defender Kenny Brower and electric junior attackman Brennan O’Neill are prime candidates for the award, an honor that annually recognizes the top male and female college lacrosse players in the United States.

No. 9 Duke ended the first quarter against No. 11 Virginia Tech Thursday evening down 23-11. The rest of the game was an uphill battle, and Duke never quite got the edge again, the ultimate 61-45 loss against the Hokies in Blacksburg, Va., marking its lowest-scoring game of the season.

The sky was a cloudy gray and a light breeze danced through the air — perfect weather for a 7.8-kilometer run.

No. 9 Duke women's basketball crushed on the road as No. 11 Virginia Tech claims revenge, narrows gap in ACC

(02/17/23 3:37am)

As the Blue Devils walked into Cassell Coliseum Thursday night in Blacksburg, Va., they had high hopes of continuing their win streak in an already remarkable season. After Duke picked up a 66-55 win against Virginia Tech three short weeks ago, the Hokies might have been another stepping stone to the ACC crown. However, the visitors seemed to forget the unfortunate reality of being on top—the only way to go is down.

'Looney Tunes' is the best to ever do it

(02/17/23 1:00pm)

Who’s the greatest anthropomorphic cartoon rabbit? That shouldn’t be a difficult question. What about the greatest cartoon duck? The greatest pig, the greatest coyote, the greatest Tasmanian devil? Maybe some answers come to mind. Any show would be lucky to have even one of these characters in their series, but if one show had all of these wacky and zany characters, then it might stand to reason that it’s one of the best shows of all time. I’m glad to say that one show DOES have all these characters, and it is “Looney Tunes.”
