The Durham-Chapel Hill metro area added 5,900 jobs year-over-year in May, with the largest gains made in the leisure and hospitality sector. James W.

The pending return of NCAA investigators to Chapel Hill might not feel like good news for the University of North Carolina and its supporters. But the probe promises welcome resolution, a chance to dispel the scent of suspicion that clings like a skunk’s spray to a school once considered a national leader in balancing the demands of athletics and academics. The return also has the potential to cast the NCAA in a bit of positive light just when the organization needs it most.
