Abstract:
A year from opening, the Durham Performing Arts Center is already saddled with doubt. The reasons for this doubt include not securing the naming rights for the center, financial costs of construction, the cost of ticket prices, competition with Carolina Theatre in Durham and the Progress Energy Center in Raleigh, and filling the theater for performances. Attracting talent is also an issue as the rental rates exclude many local, nonprofit, and grassroots organizations. The issues surrounding the building and the opening of the theater are discussed in detail.

Abstract:
A recent community event in Chatham County focused on the socio-economic and cultural factors that drive immigrants to risk their lives to come to America. Despite the risks that come with leaving their homes, many Latinos feel the risk is worth it and that North Carolina is a favorable place to live. Speakers and attendees at the event talk about perceptions of America and how to fix some of the problems associated with the immigration system.
