I just learned that NCDOT will be putting in bike lanes on the new 10th St overpass from Evans St. all the way to the...

Dec. 15 Bless Your Heart

I should've voted for Mr. Best so we could get that self-driving car thing going in Greenville. You people can't drive. This ain't bumper cars. But you go right on ahead, keep on tearing up your car and wasting gas with your drag racing, tailgating, swerving through traffic and generally making others angry. I'll see you at the next stop light.

BYH to the writer about the robbery of firearms from cars. So if someone breaks into your car and steals your gun, it's your fault? Logic.

BYH to irresponsible patients. Pay your bills! You have to pay up front for most things ... gas, cigarettes, groceries, manicures, hair salon visits. But for some reason, we help you get better and you can't seem to find a nominal amount to pay on your bill. With no finance charges added. Shame on you.

Bless your heart to our city fathers for contracting for yet another out-of-town contractor to count the parking spaces in downtown/uptown. We need to hire some city employee that knows how to count and save the money. Paid parking? It costs nothing to park at the mall.

I find myself a bit confused by the term "less fortunate." For instance, I am 99 percent positive that I am less fortunate than Bill Gates. I can only guess that there must be a nuanced version of this particular terminology. As with most things, this too can be graphed on a bell curve.

Bless your heart to the H&H drug store in Grifton. I’m sure a lot of children were very happy on the past two Saturdays. On Dec. 2 you were generous and gave out candy bags at the Grifton parade, and on Dec. 9 you had Santa Claus at the store bearing gifts. This grandmother wants to thank you very much.

OK, riddle me this: The Ford Raptor is a very nice looking truck and is tapping on the door of $70,000. All well and good. The confusing part is that it is billed as an "Off Road Vehicle." Assuming that someone is in their right mind, who would take this thing down a woods path? Not I.

The red light cameras are just one more reason to stay home and shop with Amazon.

BYH to “free sample.” It means try one. Free sample is not plural. It is singular, which means one! Teach your family, young or old, some more proper manners in public. That way everyone else other than your family can try a free sample of whatever it may be.

The congregants of the Pitt County Council on Aging love you, Rosie Grinder. We do love and appreciate you for all you do for us. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours.

BYH, there are two primary choices in life: to accept things as they exist, or to accept the responsibility of changing them.
