After several months of many phone calls, multiple visits from technicians, and misinformation from Suddenlink Customer Service, our phone, TV, and internet are still less than 75 percent in working order.

In astronomy, a corona is a white or colored glow around a luminous body, like the sun’s yellow circle behind the moon during an eclipse. This sounds a good deal like the silver linings around clouds that my optimistic parents used to bring up whenever our family faced hardship — what others…

On the third day of hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I am profoundly struck by the universal contempt that every Democrat who has spoken demonstrates for the laws Congress passes and the Constitution they are based on. Democrats all advocate that when a law is defective or fai…

In response to the Oct. 9 letter by Ernie Larkin, I would point out that Larkin has memorized all the Democratic talking points. For his information, a president’s involvement with the Justice Department or any other department in the executive branch does not skew our system of checks and b…

Most readers will have decided by now whether they will vote this year and who they will vote for. This letter is directed, however, to those few of you who have not yet made both of those decisions.

Our forefathers were believers in Jesus Christ and crossed the ocean to America to flee persecution and to worship our God freely. These brave men and women made a covenant with God to produce a righteous nation according to the Holy Scriptures.

As a Catholic priest I have been paying a lot of attention to what leaders in my faith say about what it means to be pro-life. It is not solely to be opposed to abortion. It is also protecting people in poverty and supporting efforts to end poverty. It is caring for the elderly and migrants.…

I wish to correct the Sept. 22 letter to the Reflector from Vic Corey about COVID-19 deaths. It claimed, based on a misreading of CDC reports, that the number of deaths due to COVID was only 6 percent of the number reported in the media, about 10,000 vs. 200,000-plus.

Democrats and their mainstream news allies are now insisting that even when Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed and sitting on the Supreme Court she should recuse herself from hearing arguments before the court resulting from the election. They say since Trump appointed her and he will be a…

Ever since Republicans took control of Congress in 2014, the constant drumbeat has been to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The logical question is, with what? President Trump has said that he will unveil his plan after the 2020 election. From 2008 through 2016, I served on the AM…

As a student at ECU and a fellow with NextGen North Carolina — a youth vote mobilization nonprofit — I talk to my classmates and other young voters every day about what’s at stake in the 2020 elections. My peers and I have known for a long time that we’re approaching the most important elect…

I would like to take this opportunity to respond to a letter by Dewey Funkhouser which appeared on Sept. 10. He claimed that Republicans spread lies about liberals: and his primary example was the “lie” that liberals want to take away our guns.

Dr. Ted Noel, an anesthesiologist with 36 years of experience, shows in his video how poorly masks protect you from the COVID-19. He demonstrated several different types of masks that are commonly worn by the public showing that the wearing of a mask — unless it is a Hazmat Mask — does nothi…

There appears to be a lot of confusion about the effectiveness of masks in preventing transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Our president, who has no formal training in medicine, admonished Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the CDC, for his claim that wearing masks p…

From juggling virtual learning and working from home to economic uncertainty and simply trying to stay healthy, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted each of our lives in countless ways. For those living with substance use disorders, the stress and isolation have made this period more challenging.
