Bless our stormwater system's heart (does it have one?). Seemed to hold up pretty well to me, Calvin. Stormwater is...

Mother seeks answers in death


Saturday, June 30, 2018

It's been one month since my son’s body was found burning in storage shed. It has not been determined who, why and how they did it. I feel as though it's been swept under the rug.

I have not heard anything from the 26th of May until the 26th of June about what happened. It was as though he was an animal burning. No one called the fire department, no one knows anything, and ain't no way a fire at the magnitude was not seen nor heard that no one had in their mind to call any type of rescue.

I'm asking for help from anybody who can bring me closure and justice. He was a human and his life did matter. He left behind a son who requires special care and is only 7 years old. How is he going to understand what happened to his father, why he's not seeing his father. What will happened to this little boy? Does he suffer for the lack of somebody else's knowledge?

I don't understand why no one would tell what they seen or what happened to give this young gun a piece of mind as well as myself. It's not easy living day by day knowing that your child has lost his life and no one cares what happened. Life is literally stolen away from him — one that he was looking forward to being there for his son and his son looking forward to him being there for his father. Now he don't get that chance or opportunity anymore.

You would not want this to happen to one of your loved ones, so please come forth and to bring peace to bring closure, to bring justice to this hateful crime. His death was not an accident. He was deliberately murdered.

I was out of state when Sen. John McCain passed away and I just wanted to thank him for being the true American who served his country beyond the call of duty.

I was part of the maintenance crew from Norton Air Force Base in San Bernardino, California, that prepared the C-141 cargo airplanes that…

During the summer, while seated in a local eatery waiting to order a bagel, I encountered a stranger who placed my order (gratis).  With my permission, we chatted briefly and shared a few commonalities (one of which was arthritis). As we seperated, I expressed appreciation and left feeling…

For someone to support this president after everything he has said and done must require a boatload of cognitive dissonance and is truly a Faustian bargain.

What if it was your sister whose (expletive deleted) he grabbed and bragged about it? What if Obama said that? If you wouldn't give him the…

Inspiration comes from the oddest places sometimes.

I was reading an IGN article about how Sony refuses to open its PlayStation consoles to cross-platform gameplay for the popular video game Fortnite due to Sony’s longstanding rivalry with Xbox owner Microsoft.

It got me wondering as to why…

Why does Trump show respect to Sen. John McCain only after he dies? We all remember what Trump said about McCain: I only like people who are not captured. McCain was a Navy pilot who was shot down and was a POW for over five years.

This coming from a coward like Trump who would not join the…

As a product of public education and the daughter of a public-school teacher, I wholeheartedly support the Red4Ed movement. Attending May 2018’s march in Raleigh did nothing but reinforce my beliefs in the need for more funding for education, including raising teacher salaries. The sheer…

Hurricanes and dangerous stormwater don’t wait around for elected officials to produce expensive studies for the shelf, kick crises down the road, and ponder political calculations. Greenville has a documented $350 million stormwater infrastructure challenge to avoid dangerous flooding. Dilly…

“Location, location, location” is not only the real estate agent’s mantra. It applies even more to meteorologists. And perhaps it applies to you if you read your gauge faithfully and record the totals.

Depending on where you live, this summer’s precipitation totals have…

According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers survey in 2017, the most pressing world issue for millennials is climate change. Ninety-one percent of those surveyed agreed with the statement that “science has proven that humans are responsible for climate change.”

Summer is over and conversations about using reusable straws and saving the sea turtles are dying down now that we’re all not in “beach-mode” anymore. The tag #strawlesssummer focuses on a single object and time frame, and I don’t believe that it creates a lasting impact.…
