What do you think about our beautiful highways and backroads? You can thank your representatives! They have created budget restraints so harsh that the DOT cannot even afford to have our litter picked up and our medians mowed. It is so embarrassing and uncalled for! Looks like a third-world …

BMH, I still make military corners on my bed and I still don’t wear a hat or cap inside and continue to do a lot of other things taught in the military that are just common courtesy. That makes my case for a stint in the military for everyone here as they do in Israel. Maybe that would make …

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer have been raising a huge ruckus, insisting that various White House officials appear before Congress to testify regarding how the president conducts his duties under Article II of the Constitution.

BYH, I’m not sure if it’s inconsiderate, careless, dangerous or just plain stupid — probably all of the above — but what kind of person tries to take a left (no light) onto Fire Tower at 5 p.m.? Four cars behind them and they just set there until it’s all clear. Fortunately, I had plenty of …

Don Cavellini’s letter of Dec. 26 defending the removal of a statue honoring the lives of men who died in war and attended UNC-CH was troubling. Mr. Cavellini implies that there is only one way to look at the issues of the Civil War. That is a misguided view. Ignoring the economic factors th…

It’s nearly impossible to have even a short conversation with a college administrator, politician or chief executive without the words diversity and inclusion dropping from their lips. Diversity and inclusion appear to be the end-all and be-all of their existence. So, I thought I’d begin thi…

In years past I had not been happy about the Democratic Party which I belong to, but for about the last three years I am proud of the party. There are a lot of well educated young women who worked hard to turn the party around with their huge win in 2018. These women are dedicated, hard-work…

I agree with the BYH in connection with Bradford Creek Golf Club. Apparently the mayor plays beach volleyball and can afford to belong to a country club. Is income from beach volleyball going to support its program? At one time BCGC was an asset to the city until new management took over.

Everyone knows that North Carolina is a closely divided purple state. Everyone knows that in 2020, many statewide races and control of the state legislature will be hotly contested. And everyone knows that with Democrats increasingly dominant in urban areas and Republicans in rural areas, th…

What type of mental condition is it when you lose an election and cannot seem to move on? Isn’t there some type of therapy that will help? I’ve heard that a Greek salad has health benefits.

I’d like to BYH to our proclaimed 21st century ”chosen one,” but after what he’s done I think we need to consult the Wizard of OZ and see if he can find a brain for this man. He lies when the truth would be beneficial, he distorts history blaming President Obama for giving Iran all the money…

How fitting that Mayor P.J. Connelly proclaimed Greenville a city that embraces diversity, equality and inclusion on the 91st birthday of our national hero and saint, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King.

The impeachment trial’s wild card is Chief Justice John Roberts, and how he interprets his role as presiding officer. The Constitution says the Senate has “the sole power” to try all impeachments, and when the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice “shall preside.”

Special counsel Robert Mueller warned last July that the Russians had conducted a “sweeping and systematic” campaign to undermine the last presidential election, and that a new attack was already underway. “They’re doing it as we sit here,” he told a Congressional committee.

It would be nice to have faith that, as the Senate prepares its role in the rare and momentous trial of President Donald Trump, it will do the right thing. Confronted with a mountain of evidence that an American president abused his power by shaking down a vulnerable country for his own pers…

Among the many inspiring displays at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington is a statue of U.S. Olympic athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos thrusting their clenched fists into the air as they received their gold and bronze medals at the 1968 Olympics in M…

It’s certainly not unusual for teachers to stay in their classrooms long after school ends to grade papers and plan for upcoming lessons. It’s part of the job I expected when I became a teacher. But something I didn’t expect was having to work a second job to make ends meet because state law…

The Republicans and their dear leader they let Putin install are the second most dangerous threat this Constitutional democratic republic has ever faced. In their single minded assault on our democracy, they flat out stole the 2000 election, which got them two right wing Supreme Court Justic…
