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.

Bless your heart Pope Francis. Tear down that Vatican wall. Bless your heart President Obama. Tear down those walls around your Washington, D.C., estate. Bless your heart Speaker Pelosi. Tear down that wall around your Napa estate.

If walls are immoral, lead by example. These walls were built to…

After reading Bill Redding’s letter to the editor and viewing Sunday’s Meet The Press, I was prompted to add my thoughts on greenhouse gases and global warming. We are on the brink of a world disaster of a magnitude never seen before, except perhaps during the Ice Age.

When normal high…

Today (Tuesday) I was stunned to hear that Carol Folt will be resigning from her office as Chancellor of UNC Chapel Hill; but I was not as stunned as when I read the remarks made by Harry Smith, Chair of the UNC Board of Governors (BOG). In the wake of her announcement Smith stated that he was…

It's much too early to pick or accurately predict who might be the Democratic presidential nominee for 2020. But premature as it may be, and as totally uncertain with a wide and varied cadre of candidates, isn't it refreshing to see real, honest, down to earth human beings running for the office?…

With the death and funeral of President George H.W. Bush, our nation was jolted out of its dark mood by memories of a man who: frequently served his country with distinction; found nobility in his service to others; recognized that his moments of influence were fleeting and used those moments to…

I have a good plan for Silent Sam: Bring him to Little Washington, N.C., and put him in Oakdale Cemetery. I don’t think the people here will harm him.

The people here are much nicer than the people in Raleigh that are shipped in from every country and a whole lot of thugs, after all, the city…

This wall is a waste of money — money that could be well spent helping the lives of American citizens in need.

We are one of the only first-world countries in the world to not have universal healthcare, but we would rather spend billions of dollars on a wall.

This wall may put a bandaid on…

I was at a basketball practice. To improve shooting from the foul-line, the coach instituted a drill. If the player didn’t make the shot, the rest of the team had to run relays or do push-ups. This was for every player and every shot. It was grueling.

There were lessons, but the one that was…

The 27th Annual Eastern Carolina Unnatural Resources Fair is coming Feb. 1-3 with your support. If our residents weren’t creative and enjoyed entering, we wouldn’t have a fair.

In 26 years, we have had approximately 10,000 creative entries recreating our used resources. The fair is up…

Mitch McConnell is abdicating his Constitutional duties as leader of half of the first branch of government. Doing nothing is not an option and not the way our system works, and he degrades the office by acting as a minion whose job it is to protect the president at all costs.

This is the same man…
