Looking back, 2018 was the best year ever for The 9th Street Journal.
Oh yeah, we just started three months ago!
Still, we published a great assortment of stories and photos that explored life in Durham.
We profiled Durham’s new fire chief Robert Zoldos and showed how his work as mayor of a small town in Virginia provides clues to what he might be like in his new role. (He also looks great in traditional German attire for Oktoberfest.) We examined how a new iPhone app steers you away from crime but raises questions about how technology can magnify social divisions.
And that’s just a taste of what we did … in three months! Stay tuned for lots more in 2019!
