New page? Yes, this section is now printed on paper with slightly reduced page dimensions. But the story type you are reading is the same size as before. We've launched a long-term project to convert the entire Observer to a page size that is now standard in our industry. This requires gradual changes in our production processes.

Council candidates: The Indian Trail Town Council will interview candidates for an open seat on the council on Tuesday.

The seat was vacated by John Hullinger, who resigned from the council because he has moved to Phoenix for a job.

Ten people have applied for his seat. The council will choose Hullinger's replacement after the interviews.

The new council member will serve the remainder of Hullinger's term, which ends this year.

Tuesday's council meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Indian Trail civic building off Indian Trail Road.
