On Friday, July 19, our car completely stopped at Fourth and Elm streets. All systems were off! My husband and I were in a panic as we were in the right hand lane and could not move the car out of the street.

Two lovely ladies stopped and offered a jump. Then two gentlemen got out and offered…

Byron York’s message in his column published on July 16 is summarized in the title, “To win, Dems need voters to ignore economy.”

On July 17, President Trump visited our fair city. He arrived days after tweeting that four Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

How many racist statements must this president issue before the weight of his words and actions drag him beneath the waters of that “swamp” he so fervidly pledged to drain? And what will be the proverbial “straw” that finally breaks the back of affirmative silence that…

The Pitt County Branch of the NAACP stands against the language of hate and bigotry that left a devastating mark on our community. We live in times when we should be able to look to our nation’s capital for messages of unity and hope.

Tonight is a time to try my soul. I turned on my television around 9 p.m. and was ashamed of my fellow citizens of Pitt County. I heard “send her back” chanted by those citizens. I heard the sounds of hostility in those voices I never believed I could hear from people I might know. I…

The Trump-instigated chant (“Send Her Back”) didn't surprise me, but I am not one who believes this is Greenville's culture. Greenville citizens have always been cordial to me, even the ones who hate my guts.

Trump was proud of himself as he fired up his brain-dead fans and approved the…
