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.

What’s with you, Vic Corey? One second you are crowing how Trump is the reason for you being richer, the next you are, as always, worshipping your idea of a “new Christian.”

First, the U.S. is not a business; it is a country. Trump’s planned bankruptcies, his finding ways…

Is it any wonder that the attendance is dropping in the NFL when you can only pay the head man, Roger Godell, $40 million a year and have as many as five commentators sitting around a table in their $500-plus suits as they blurt out that which you and I are looking at? Not to mention another two…

With regard to the letter to the editor from David French concerning illegal immigration, I would respectfully ask Mr. French to do more research before citing any more misinformation. According to the Cato Institute and other sources, “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration” (2017)…

With mid-terms behind us, the next Greenville election is for 2019 mayor and City Council. For six months following the 2017 election, I made no public statements and granted no interviews, preferring instead to observe actions of the new mayor and council.

Folk ask if I’ll run and perhaps…

Most of the mainstream media and the Democratic party leadership continually, and erroneously, declare President Trump as evil, racist and a hater of anything and everything the Democratic party stands for.

I suppose his economic policies that have benefited African Americans, Hispanics and others…

Henry Kissinger had much to say about our President Trump. “Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries haven’t seen before.” Yes, President Trump is much different from our previous president that was willing to bow to other world leaders.

Trump’s presence was…

When the powers of division and hate emerge in the land, it is people of “good will” who do the hard work of reconciliation and community building. As a response to 9/11, a dedicated group of people began to gather each month to pray for peace and justice.

The thing that distinguishes…

A "legal" immigrant is defined as someone who comes to a country from their country of origin through the legal processes in place. An illegal alien is someone unlawfully residing in the United States, whether by clandestine border crossing, visa deadline violation, or other means. A…

Once again, the Greenville City Council has failed to adequately question a Greenville Police Department funding request, thereby spending taxpayer money irresponsibly. In the Oct. 18 edition of The Daily Reflector, it was reported that the Greenville City Council unanimously approved a three-year,…

The open enrollment period is shorter again this year. There is only a six-week period to enroll, and the current deadline is Dec. 15.

The good news is that you have people in your community who are trained to provide assistance to consumers at no charge. Greene County Health Care has specially…
