The same kids, over and over again. After a while, his faith in the juvenile justice system to rehabilitate offenders was so low he turned to his religious faith to find a new path.</p> Mon, 20 Aug 2012 14:19:00 +0000 Frank Stasio & Susan Davis 3964 at http://wunc.org Meet Jon Powell Honoring Hoover Adams http://wunc.org/post/honoring-hoover-adams <p>In 1950, World War II veteran Hoover Adams scored a $15,000 loan from his father-in-law to start a newspaper in Dunn, North Carolina.&nbsp; He called it <a href="http://www.mydailyrecord.com/ee/dunndailyrecord/index.php">The Daily Record</a> and from the start, the paper’s mission was to feature hyperlocal coverage of Harnett County. Church meetings, civic club activities and hog killings took precedence over political elections, plane crashes and national events that happened hundred of miles away from the paper’s home base. Adams’ news model was a success.

Even though this group is the nation’s most diverse and most technologically savvy, how will they fit into the workplace of the future?</p> Wed, 08 Feb 2012 11:20:00 +0000 Leoneda Inge 3281 at http://wunc.org "Gen Z" in the Workplace Judges Hear Arguments in Redistricting Case http://wunc.org/post/judges-hear-arguments-redistricting-case <p>Judges heard more than three hours' worth of arguments yesterday over litigation challenging newly drawn congressional and legislative maps.<br> Fri, 13 Jan 2012 11:05:00 +0000 Jessica Jones 3452 at http://wunc.org
