Feb. 14-19 at the A.J. Fletcher Music Center, the ECU School of Music presented a fabulous three-day flute symposium that featured spectacular guest musicians. ECU flute faculty Christine Gustafson organized the event and performed brilliantly.

I attended two recitals and they were both fantastic. After each number, the audience gave the musicians a standing ovation to express their appreciation of the outstanding musicianship. It was wonderful to be given the opportunity to personally meet the artists at a fine reception held after the recitals.

I, and the citizens of this community are so very fortunate to have such incredible musical talent available to enjoy. You can see all of the upcoming events by visiting the ECU School of Music website at http://www.ecu.edu/cs-cfac/music/. Dr. Gustafson, you are a great gift to the community and to the ECU School of Music. Thank you very much.

If the ECU chancellor search would follow the guidelines that Calvin Mercer outlined in his letter to the editor published Wednesday, I believe the outcome would be a highly qualified new leader and an enhanced national reputation for ECU.

This assessment is based on my involvement in numerous…

My name is Kennedy Tate, I am in 11th grade and I am a Boy Scout with Troop 30 at Jarvis. I am writing this letter to express my concerns about the Green New Deal proposal. I do believe in the preservation and conservation of the Earth. However, the GND does this in an ineffectual and costly manner.…

ECU chancellor resigns. What’s next? Here’s a win-win-win-win for taxpayers, students, parents and ECU.

I’m pretty sure I’m in the ballpark on these numbers. A head hunter company conducts a national search. Cost, plus expenses bringing in candidates, is likely $100,000 plus.…

This is alarming!

The Trump administration and acting EPA administrator, Andrew Wheeler (a former coal industry lobbyist), have put forth a proposal that could have devastating effects on the waters of the US and specifically here in NC where we have 12,210 square miles of watersheds. Their…

I am writing this letter to thank all the volunteers who made my last Upward Basketball season so much fun!

Special thanks to Mr. Lennie Furlough for organizing the Upward program at Jarvis Church, and to Mr. David Campbell for spending many hours serving as my team's coach.

I also appreciate all…

It seems to me that many of the acts of terrorism (read mass shootings) through the world today are by white supremacists. These shootings are then dismissed by many people I know due to ignorance and fear of the victims religion or cultural background. After the most recent act, in New Zealand…

Dear Sen. Tillis,

Four weeks ago I shared with one of your staff members that I admired you as a man of courage and conviction when you penned your Washington Post op-ed opposing the president's "executive overreach" on immigration.

You stated, “It’s never a tough vote for me when…

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go.” (Dr. Seuss) This timely quote reminds me of a conversation I had with a cousin of mine recently. He informed me that his daughter at Bertie High School, where I graduated in…

When my husband and I go to the theater, we usually get front and center seats. We have also enjoyed living our lives, where ever we have been, in that same location. It’s our choice and the privilege of the young. If you work hard, aim high, and fit right in, you get the good seats.

But…

What good is a city if not for its neighborhoods? A city's neighborhoods define its character, its safety, its attractiveness and its beauty. Big buildings, parking garages and businesses can certainly appeal to prospective residents, but only supplement the surrounding neighborhoods.
