Bless the heart of American democracy. In 2016 Obama nominated Merrick Garland to replace Justice Scalia and Mitch McConnell said that it was important for the Senate to “give the American people a voice" in filling the vacancy "by waiting until the next president took office." Justice Ginsb…

BTH of Justice Ginsburg. She will be missed. I hope that the voters get to decide who should nominate her replacement.

I was beyond outraged to learn that Parade magazine is no longer published each week. When I moved to Greenville and learned I could receive this beacon of journalist excellence each Sunday in the Reflector, I immediately canceled my subscription to the New Yorker. Now I guess I’ll have to s…

BYH Greenville police. Not getting a handicap parking spot in Greenville is a huge problem. Most places have replaced them with other things, but if you want to start giving tickets start with Food Lion on 10th Street at Hardee Crossing, then Harris Teeter at Bell's Fork. You can write ticke…

A very big thank you to the Emmanuel Baptist Church for stepping up and helping the students of C.M. Eppes get back to learning face to face. You have no idea how much your generosity and grace has impacted a population of students that need a real face-to-face connection during this time.

Ladies and gentlemen, would you please leave your phones alone while driving? The rest of us are left to deal with your lane-drifting, slowing down and speeding up for no reason, and making love to your phone at stoplights instead of paying attention, thus preventing two or more other cars f…

We visited the Sycamore Hill Gateway Plaza at the Town Common this weekend and were deeply impressed by its history and symbolism. Even though that history is tragic, the memorial engenders hopeful feelings. It’s as if it’s telling us that acknowledging the sorrows and wrongs of the past can…

Congratulations to the ECU baseball team and coach for receiving the AAC award for academic excellence for the fifth straight time. Your many fans appreciate your discipline and hard work. We look forward to the first game this year!

Bless your heart, Joe Biden. You missed the point. Mr. Trump downplayed the virus to save the public fear. If you Democrats would work with Mr. Trump, things truly could be great.

BYH Greene County water. We are seniors on fixed income. We buy distilled water for coffee and spring water to drink. Our bill for the past two months has been over $100, we have no leaks, and no way to protest the high price we are now paying. A man on disability lives alone and also paid n…

BYH to the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion. This group of black women stood up to a white Army and ran the fastest mail service in Europe during World War II. Let’s reinstate them!

BYH to the folks supporting the text amendment that was created to allow JPII to have regular sporting events with amplified sound and stadium lights in a residential area. This amendment will apply to all city residential neighborhoods, so one day you may be faced with a similar situation. …

BTH of people complaining that the government is ruining this country, telling us what we can and cannot do during this pandemic. I hope they remember that in November when it’s time to vote.

I will never forgive Trump for killing my mother. She was in her 90s, diagnosed with non-treatable stage four cancer. We could no longer care for her at home and had been placed in a nursing home hospice care facility. Had Donald Trump done his job, this would not have happened.

Bless my heart! I am tired of reading submissions from the core few grumpy residents of Planters Walk. The vast majority of residents are not impacted by the light and sound from the stadium. I have a practical suggestion for those who have no patience for youth enjoying playing outdoors in …

Bless your heart ECU, the “service” university. Loan your neighbor C.M. Eppes some classroom space while they are repairing the roof. Your classes are online, do the right thing. These kids would benefit from being on a college campus.

BYH ECU football players. I'm sorry the university sees you as nothing more than cash cows. Take heart. There are ECU fans and Pirate Club members that want the season deferred until it is safer for you, the coaches, the officials, and the stadium workers.

Bless our hearts. Fox News has a cult following. Everyone listening to their false claims and conspiracy theories, those are the ones that are going to vote. Take heed. This ought to get all others fired up and vote, vote, vote!

The upcoming COVID football season will be real fun. The team who wins will be the one with the fewest infected players. Of course if you get behind you can put in a few infected players, which will scare the opposing team into submission. Reminds me of those dragons who spit fire. Was it Be…

BYH. Tired of Walmart managers and their no-mask wearing dramas? It’s not like they’re saying go back home and change out of your pajamas.

Thank you to the Greenville Public Works Department for your efforts to clean up all of the debris from the recent storms. You are the best. BYH to the citizens that continue to put their debris in the gutters instead of on your lawn.
