BYH, we can do it, whatever we set our minds to. Just remember, we are AmeriCANS, not AmeriCANTS.
BMH. I am sick of the gun nuts running the show. They will not be satisfied until all of us become victims of gun violence. It is past time for real gun control in this country.
BYH to the article on Farmville building a new library. Beneath the present photo of the public library the article states that the library opened in 1930. It leads you to believe that the building shown is the building relating to 1930, but that's incorrect. The library opened upstairs in the old municipal building where the fire department is now housed. The building appearing in Monday's DR was constructed in the late 1950s or early 1960s with the addition in 1997.
I have heard that if your neighbor's dog bites you that you can do nothing because the "first bite is free." If that is true, how about if I bite the beast first?
BYH every driver in Greenville: Pedestrians have right of way. Please learn how to drive before ending someone's life.
I believe when I retire I shall be sure to get out every weekday in morning rush hour traffic and pull as far as I can to the right at the stop sign and turn my left turn signal on, back traffic up on the busy highway while I double check to make sure there aren't any vehicles coming from Vanceboro before I turn left into my neighborhood, find something enthralling that keeps me looking at my phone for 10 more seconds after the stoplight turns green and drive 25 mph below the posted speed limit.
Soccer, otherwise known as the real football, is only the hottest sport in the world. Why doesn't ECU have a men’s soccer team?
BYH I would not consternate too much about The ECvelo Spandex-Speedsters crowd concern over the commuter LimeBikes.
I had a point I wanted to make in BYH but could not figure out how to do it without offending the politically correct group. So I will say nothing at all. I think that is their aim.
BYH, explain to future generations when they can't farm the land, breathe the air or drink the water that it was good for the economy.
BYH to the "unprofessional clothes at Vidant" complaint. They don't wear their white coat all the time for the same reason the military doesn't wear their dress uniform into combat. Have some common sense and stop being offended by everything. It's really no big deal.
BYH to the city slickers complaining about potholes and poor road conditions in town. Drive out to the country roads and hit one of our 8-inch-deep potholes or the dips in the roads going 55 mph and y'all will be glad to get back to town. DOT please help us all.
BYH, and a toast to you: May you get want you want. May you have what you need. And may you not get what you deserve!
