If Dewey Funkhouser's recent letter is to be taken literally and seriously, one would be led to believe that anyone other than liberal voters are lying, biased, disillusioned, fear mongering, money grubbing "Bible thumpers."

I gather from his comments about President Donald Trump voters that Mr.…

In the past, I have read Dewey Funkhouser’s submissions with bewildered amusement. His latest missive actually made me feel sorry for him.

He is a talented artist, former minor league baseball player and an honorable Army veteran. He is also a very angry man who could find peace with just a…

What follows Wednesday and Thursday? This week, it’s “Don’t Fry Day” — an occasion to raise awareness for sun safety and encourage everyone to protect their skin.

An estimated 5.6 million Americans will confront skin cancer in 2017. Unfortunately, the “all…

One of the many definitions of disenfranchisement is “to deprive someone of a right or privilege.” I want to discuss a situation that doesn’t affect me, but feasibly could affect some state employees.

I received a letter dated May 19, 2017, from the N.C. State Health Plan…

Thank you so much to the Greenville police officer, who directed traffic Sunday at the final turn of the 31st annual Fiesta Biathlon in Greenville and who was courteous enough to cheer me on to the finish line while blasting the Rocky theme song “Eye of the Tiger.” It was so…

It’s estimated that about 40 million people will be traveling this Memorial Day weekend to reach their vacation destinations or backyard barbecues — the highest number of travelers in 12 years. But congested highways won’t be the only thing aggravating drivers. Police across the…

Many commentators say that Michael Flynn lied to Vice President Mike Pence. How would they know that? Was anyone present during their conversation? Getting the truth from Pence is laughable. I say Pence knew the truth and is guilty like the rest of them.

I have said, and I repeat, that as horrible…

The op-ed column published in The Daily Reflector by Dr. Allen Oseroff, a retired cardiologist, proposing socialized medicine for all Americans was fantastic.

Of course, the Democrats rejected it in favor of mandated health insurance in 2010, and Republicans refer to socialized medicine at…
