BYH: To the city of Greenville. You spend dollars promoting uptown Greenville to draw many in. Now you want to drive...

Jan. 3 Bless Your Heart

BYH to those who do realize a shutdown of government means a paid vacation for nonessential personnel. They do not use any personal time off or anything. It's free money for them.

So the next big buying opportunity is Valentine's Day. The big retailers have out all the paraphernalia for bringing true love to your life. Best to shop early and get your sweetheart something made in China that says I love you cheaply.

Had a sinus infection over the holidays. The urgent care centers had lines out the door. Why is it that you can buy dope just about anywhere at any time but antibiotics are more controlled? I wish the drug dealers carried a line of antibiotics, milk, eggs and bread.

To the person complaining about the chessboard at the library: this is why eastern N.C. falters. When you get nothing, you complain. When you get something, you complain. Eastern N.C. is perpetually negative.

This new year I have decided to make my resolution to stop listening to all the negative people that continue to bring me down. Bless the heart of those who only find negativity and fail to find the good in opportunities. The new year, 2019, is headed in a positive direction and I hope y’all will join me.

A no BYH to the person who tore up our front yard in the middle of the night. That is just so wrong and rude.

BYH to ECU and the $8 million G.K. Butterfield Transportation Center off Pitt Street and Dickinson Avenue. There are many students, faculty and staff who would like to be picked up at the transportation center and dropped off at campus. It would be greatly appreciated if ECU administration would add the center to the daily route for us who do not have the ability to park near campus.

Bless the heart of Congressman Jones. I pray for a quick reocery from your illness. But you owe us, your employer, a full explanation about your illness. To do otherwise is to mimic the many other elected officials who are arrogant beyond measure in their elected positions. What say you, Rep. Jones?

Bless the hearts of those who believe the City of Greenville should be in real estate speculation and development. Mayor Connelly won because he knew how nasty governmental entities picking winners and losers could become. Apparently folks still haven’t grasped the significance of the city’s settlement with Landmark.

How about bringing minor league baseball downtown instead of a hotel? Other large urban cities have used minor league baseball as a support for local businesses and the revitalization of their urban core.

Bless your heart to all of us who made it through 2018 and look forward to 2019. Every year typically holds its challenges and its triumphs. Here's to all a healthy, happy and prosperous new year. Cheers!
