BYH to people who bash teachers. You literally would not last one class period at my school. I get cussed at, chairs...

Judge overstepped authority

Legal precedent: a legal case that establishes a principle or rule. The rule is used by the court to decide later cases with similar issues or facts. No ruling has been leaned on more than Roe v. Wade. The ruling established the right to kill an unborn until fetal viability, the time that the baby could live outside the womb. Viability is subjective. Only God knows if the baby would live. WWJD?

Judge Bryan Collins has set a new legal precedent. Collins has canceled millions of votes on voter ID and the tax cap. Collins contends that the vote is invalid because the General Assembly is invalid because of district gerrymandering. Therefore, any law passed by these legislators are invalid. Sorry Gov. Cooper, you can’t disperse the billions of dollars for hurricane victims. Sorry teachers, no pay raise, no funding for more teachers and funding for more schools.

Judge Collins holds an elective position in Wake County. I estimate that at least 90 percent of North Carolina voters had no voice as to whether this man qualifies as an unbiased judge. What right does he have to cancel our majority vote?

I would like to say thank you to the staff at Lake Forest Elementary School of Pitt County. Thank you so much for your dedication to the students there and “Creating Lifelong Learners.”

Can you even imagine a world without teachers like Ms. Williams, the kindergarten teacher and the…

Should we make it against the law for men to have vasectomies? Oh, that's right. It's men making the decisions (about women's bodies). Maybe the government needs to outlaw Viagra. That should eliminate some pregnancies. Perhaps our government should start litigating men's health care issues…

I have followed with interest your series on the opioid epidemic with which we are currently struggling. A major concern has to do with access to treatment. The standard of care for persons addicted to opioids is medication assisted treatment, a combination of medication, such as Buprenorphine or…

Behold: the father of lies is come. (John 8:44)

The Washington Post just announced that Trump has passed the 10,000 mark of provable lies. I have never seen as dishonest a bunch as every member of this administration.

Just look at Attorney General William Barr. He auditioned for his job by writing…

In response to Dr. Cook’s Public Forum submission, I agree with the need for greater price and coverage transparency from medical insurance companies. I do hope that someday soon we achieve that goal.

However, as a gastroenterologist (GI specialist), I was taken aback at your inadvertent…

As a physician, I am interested in learning about cost-effective practices. Last year, I attended a conference where the speaker, a physician and chief cancer control officer of the American Cancer Society, spoke about screening tests for colon cancer. He spoke about a non-invasive testing method…

I read with great concern, shock and some anger your May 6 article entitled "New ECU leadership faces significant challenges." As an alum and North Carolina taxpayer, I believe ECU deserves better leadership.

Your article indicated ECU has seen a $60-70 million swing in cash flow since 2016 with a…

Like most people, I read Bless Your Heart to get a mild chuckle and an occasional feel good story. However, I found the comment in the third to the last entry in Saturday's column to be offensive: "Women who have abortions (with the exception of rape and incest) are women with no morals." In my…

In his May 10 letter to the editor about the Muller report, Vic Corey opines that "(W)e are about to expose all the crooked players in our government — the majority being lying, godless Democrats."

While we acknowledge the First Amendment right to express opinions, it seems to me that Mr.…

A major problem in our society today seems to be a lack of empathy. That ability and willingness to put ones self in other people's shoes, seems lost and archaic.

What happened to the following sentiments? "Give us your tied, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The…
