If you were watching The History Channel last week, the events in Chapel Hill looked eerily like the events used to bring Lenin, Stalin and Hitler to power.

Reminiscent of the KKK, law enforcement and the chancellor appear intimidated by the drunken mob that tumbled the Civil War memorial erected in 1913 by granddaughters of loved ones lost on both sides of that war apparently because neo-abolitionists were offended by its presence.

The blessings of liberty have come at great cost, not only at Gettysburg, but also Normandy. The carnage on the south side of Chicago serves as a reminder that those blessings of liberty have not been secured for everyone. For those offended by the destruction of this memorial, “shutting out the light to expose the shadows” only serves those who celebrate the Divided States of America.

Donald van der Vaart in his column “Solar power deals increase electricity bills” states that the long term solar energy contracts which Duke has been forced to accept are bad for Duke customers. In his opinion Duke power customers will be forced to accept overpayments for electricity.…

Back in the 1970s, America, in its dependence on fossil fuels, suffered from the OPEC oil cartel embargo. It caused everything to rise, inflation, unemployment, interest rates, all connected to higher prices at the pump. President Carter saw our national vulnerability to polluting toxic finite…

Over Mayor P.J. Connelly’s objection, the Greenville City Council finally passed an acceptable stormwater plan. It wasn’t the strongest possible plan to protect citizens and property from flooding, but it was much better than a weaker plan supported by the mayor. Mayor Connelly said in…

This past weekend my wife and I headed to Westwood to watch the UCLA Bruins host our Pirates in a three-game baseball series. What we witnessed was collegiate baseball played at the highest level!

From the slick fielding to the great at-bats to the phenomenal pitching, the games had the feel of a…

Big "Teddy Bear" Bernie Sanders has been shouting, "Free medicine for everyone!" because 71 percent of the people in America, according to the polls, favor free health care.

The fact is though that Medicare co-pays, deductibles, and principle payments (part B) fill up the Medicare program…

There was a time when I had pretty hands. That was then and this is now. I don’t mind that my hands don’t have the smoothness of my youth, but nonetheless my hands are problematic.

You see I can be out and about, here at home or any place at all and it happens. I may be puffed up, proud,…

As a disabled veteran of the Vietnam War, I am deeply concerned that there are people in high places who are in the process of choreographing yet another useless war for the fine young men and women of our military to go get maimed and die in for no legitimate purpose.

In particular, and mark my…

Medicaid expansion could provide affordable health care to about 9,800 Pitt County residents struggling to get by on very low incomes. Without affordable health insurance, people must make too many hard choices as they triage their bills and obligations. Which is least crucial, groceries,…

I am writing this letter in response to the March 23 letter about white supremacist attitudes that have been prevalent throughout United States history. Likewise, racism and intolerance of all marginalized minorities is not just a part of American history; it is also a part of Evangelical church…
