BYH to the one who thinks that we are energy independent because of this president. The initiatives you speak of began...

Nov. 19 Bless Your Heart

BYH to the GOP: the administration is lifting the ban on importing elephant tusks into the US. The irony is that the elephant is the symbol of the party. Shooting this magnificent animal is akin to the GOP shooting itself in the foot several times a day.

I see now that the new GUC executive is making over $263,000 and to my knowledge he can't even coach college football. But you can't fight city hall even if you can find it.

As a military retiree I want to give a heartfelt thanks to all who show their appreciation for our service, especially the restaurants and businesses on Veterans Day and all through the year. I served from the Vietnam era to 1994. In the Vietnam years we were treated coolly, sometimes with outright disdain, but through recent years the public attitude has changed.

Dear BYH readers. Please don’t laugh. I have a suggestion to make to all the lottery winners in our area. Please consider donating some of your winnings to the Pitt County tax department in Greenville and Winterville. We, the senior citizens, will appreciate all help. I am in my eighties trying to do my best, but, please, we need a little help if you have a little extra.

BYH to DOT for the short time for traffic turning left onto South Memorial Drive off of westbound Regency Drive. Five cars max are allowed within the cycle, leaving seven to eight cars waiting till the next change.

Bless your heart to the mess that is animal welfare and control in this county. One jurisdiction has one rule, an adjoining jurisdiction has another. The policies are a thoughtless patchwork of largely non-working rules. It's long past time to get an integrated Pitt County (including municipalities) animal control and welfare plan. The mess we have now benefits neither humans nor animals.

Bless our hearts, what has happened to the Veterans Day movies where we get to watch our heroes on TV? There were hardly any military movies on. It seems we should have seen a few. This was very disappointing to some of us.

Bless your heart to the elderly lady at Grifton Mission Ministries on this past Veterans Day. You know who you are. I can tell you that you’ve made people very happy with your kindness. Be assured that we will pass it on in one way or another.

Bless your heart to all the people who complain about the premiums for the health insurance and the co-payments and so forth and so on, but what I really think we should do is do away with all the insurance companies and all the policies and everybody go to Medicaid. You can’t get better insurance than Medicaid.

I would like to thank the person who paid my food at McDonald’s on Friday, Nov. 3. May God bless you and thank you again.

BYH, these mountains you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb.
