Chapel Hill church provides sanctuary for undocumented resident

Sitting on a tan couch on a Friday afternoon, Rosa del Carmen Ortez-Cruz and a visiting friend crocheted intricate stitches of thin, pink yarn into a small spiral, about half the size of Ortez-Cruz’s palm.  This is how Ortez-Cruz has spent most of her time over the past two weeks — crocheting, reading the Bible, sewing and learning English — all within the confines of her office-turned-bedroom, 50 miles away from her family and home.

CHCCS students join national gun violence protest, walk out of classes

“I need to feel safe in my own school,” Chapel Hill High School first-year Isabel Sharp said. “I think that the walkout was an effective demonstration of how we need stricter gun laws.”  Wednesday marked one month since the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. that killed 17 people. To protest gun violence in schools, students at every Chapel Hill-Carrboro City high school participated in a walkout Wednesday, joining high school walkouts across the country. Students stood for 17 minutes to honor the 17 victims of the Parkland shooting.
