Bless your heart to those that categorize all teachers as whiners. Who taught you to write your letters. Too bad you didn't learn empathy and compassion. If you had a heart a quarter the size of the Grinch's, I would suggest that you volunteer in a classroom. The majority of teachers are not there for the money, they love passing on knowledge to the children. Some teachers may have to deal with not enough classroom funding, overcrowded classrooms or children who are lethargic because the last time they had a meal was at school the day before.

To all the folks that get so upset about vehicles not pulling off the highway when a funeral procession approaches: This is a custom that people from other parts of the country are possibly not aware of. Unlike eastern N.C., folks from most other parts of the country yield to rescue squads (to allow the person a chance to live by getting them to a hospital in time for treatment) and therefore, may not feel compelled to stop for a funeral procession to pass by. Not Born Here.

Bless your heart Jill Hollis for sharing the ups and downs of living your life with ALS. Your walk with God has impacted so many lives. All who love you are rejoicing that you are “Finally Home” in the arms of Jesus after your struggle. Many are lifting your sweet family in prayer. Thank you Lord for Jill. She will be missed, but her life of faith will live on in our hearts.

I would like to send a bless your heart to the very nice lady who drove the burgundy Chevy Blazer. On August 30, I went to the doctor and found out I had a fracture in my foot. I was put in a very awkward boot. She asked me in the parking lot if I would be OK and later as I was crossing Arlington to the bus stop. See, there are still lovely people in our world.

Bless your heart whoever wrote about the Pitt County Schools and their no-raise policy and gonna cut benefits. We as bus drivers and safety assistants need to load up on one of Pitt County's buses and go to Raleigh and rally with some of the headhunters up there about our present grievances. Let's come together and get the ball rolling. I need benefits, and you do also, along with a cost-of-living raise. The heat is on baby.

Bless your heart Greenville Police Department when you give parking tickets in neighborhoods where students reside at 5:45 in the morning yet you never give tickets in other neighborhoods, like the ones near the stadium.
Bless your heart to Pitt County for receiving a rating of “C” from the Civitas Institute for the ratio of county government growth to population growth. A grade of “F” to Civitas for placing ideology above the needs of our people.

Bless your heart to Greenville Recreation and Parks and the City of Greenville pool for making the last pool day, a day for the dogs. About 70 dogs and their owners enjoyed swimming in the cool, clean water of the city pool. Some dogs dressed for the occasion while others just dove right in to enjoy the water. Bless your Heart to Jersey Mikes for donating the sandwiches and to Coastal Beverage for donating soft drinks for the humans. Thank you Greenville for being such a dog friendly place. Cora Tyson and the rest of the Board of Friends of Greenville Off-Leash Dog Area.

Bless your heart to all those ECU campus police and Greenville police officers who do not slow down for pedestrians crossing at Charles and Library streets. Not only has this happened to me, but I have witnessed three separate incidences of police officers rounding the corner coming from the downtown area obviously speeding, without lights or sirens, whizzing past pedestrians just as they scramble to make it up onto the curb.

Bless your heart to the paper carrier who delivers on Lum Brown Road in Williamston. Thank you so much for throwing the paper on our porch. My husband and I are elderly and have trouble moving about and having the paper on the porch is a big help.
