Few faces change on Carrboro Board of Aldermen

The Carrboro Board of Aldermen added one new face Tuesday night.  Incumbents Jacquelyn Gist, Randee Haven-O’Donnell and Sammy Slade were all re-elected, alongside newcomer Barbara Foushee. This is the first time Foushee, whose sister Valerie is an N.C. senator, has run for office. She won around 25.33 percent of the vote, according to unofficial results from Orange County precincts.

UPDATED: Mother and son found dead in home on Deming Road

When Dirk Cotton and his family moved to their home on Deming Road in 2005, one of Margaret Gibson’s sons knocked on their door with an apple pie at hand.  “I thought it was a really sweet thing to do. I hadn’t seen anyone do that in decades," he said. "The incident was surprisingly depressing."  Thursday Oct. 12, the Cottons found out their neighbors, Margaret Gibson, 86, and her son, Eric Gibson, 53, had died in their Chapel Hill home in 442 Deming Road.
