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

I saw the mayor posted pictures on his social media account about the large stormwater project downtown, I bet Mercer has steam coming out of his ears right about now.

Driving to the park at town common this weekend was splendid due to the new American flags displayed in the park. Thank you Greenville for this beautiful patriotic symbol that honors are military veterans for their service.

BMH, I honestly don't believe there was any "collusion" between Trump and the Russians, but why all this denial of subpoenas for testimony and financial records? If there is nothing to hide, why all the obfuscation? If this is an out and out attempt to suppress the balance of power provided by the constitution, there is one word for that — treason.

Back in the 1950s my father always carried a handkerchief that had been laundered and ironed. He told me that a gentleman always carried a clean handkerchief in case a lady should need one. I guess handkerchiefs were a casualty of the war on women or women's lib.

In this country we believe in separation of church and state! Except of course for the religion of global warming. You must believe in that or else you will get called lots of bad names. Doesn't bother me what you call me as I have been married for over 40 years. My bride has already used all those names plus some she invented solely for me.

BYH, don't like abortions? Just ignore them like you ignore racism, sexism, white supremacy, police brutality, homeless veterans, climate change, Flint and Puerto Rican residents, science, facts or a half million children in foster care.

We need to remember one critical component in the fight against opioid addiction. That being: if you do not start taking the stuff you will not get addicted. And now you are going to tell me that all addiction stems from the doctor prescribing the opioid. I doubt I will buy that.

BYH, read Matthew 25:41-46 and see just how far Trump and his Republicans are from Christ's teachings. Never again believe that pap about them being the party of values, morals or faith. If anything, they represent the opposite of the Christian faith.

BYH, Ben Carson. So comforting to know we have a cabinet secretary who has no clue about his job. What else is new?

My daughter graduated from ECU recently and has decided to stay in Greenville because she thinks Greenville is heading in the right direction for young professionals. Thank you to the city leaders for helping to make her decision much easier.

BYH, one failed shoe bomb and we all have to take our shoes off at the airport. 31 school shootings since Columbine and no change in gun laws.
