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 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…

The Production Gap Report, a document developed by six leading environmental organizations, was released in November 2019. I recommend you read it. The “Production Gap” represents “the discrepancy between countries’ planned fossil fuel production and global production levels consistent with …

It was our God, the creator of heaven and earth that intervened the 2016 election, not Russia, and raised up and anointed Donald Trump to be America’s leader. God is blessing Trump’s effort to restructure our economy and military and to lead America away from the cliff of communist-socialist…

I appreciate Gov. Roy Cooper and Health and Human Services Sec. Mandy Cohen making the trip to Greenville Monday and their willingness to discuss issues related to the health and wellbeing of eastern North Carolinians. Unfortunately, I was unable to participate due to clinical commitments in…

From what I can gather, the world is likely a better place without Iran’s brutal General Soleimani. However, President Trump’s decision to take the man out is a frightening and appalling abuse of power that sets an extremely dangerous precedent, in my view.

To be inspired, challenged, loved and made to laugh, spend an evening with Lucille Gorham, who died last January. For the sake of our community and our world, she’s someone to keep fresh in our memory, especially as we approach MLK Day.

Pointing out President Trump’s negative characteristics gets tiresome, but I can’t let this one pass: Killing the top general of Iran was questionable but threatening to strike Iran’s cultural sites is a cheap shot unbecoming to the leader of the free world.

Tobacco Farmers are paid 9 cents for the tobacco in a pack of 20 cigarettes. That’s less than a half a penny per cigarette. Tobacco farmers haven’t had a pay raise in 37 years. The federal government should step in and mandate a pay raise for the American tobacco farmers so they can grow the…

Certainly none of the members of the Greenville City Council are as boneheaded or mired in climate change denial as as our president and so many in his administration. The council should be applauded for their previous efforts at “greening” our city but there is so much more that we all coul…

The current resident of the White House knows nothing of the realities of war. Had he served in the Army as a participant in the Vietnam War — as he rightfully should have — he would not now display such a cavalier attitude about starting yet another war for other people to be maimed in and …

In 2018, North Carolina voters amended the state constitution to enshrine the principle of voter ID. The previous state voter ID law was struck down by a Federal Appeals Court in 2016 when the Obama Justice Department argued that it unconstitutionally suppressed minority voting.

Another year in Greenville has ended, and the city continued to make great progress. The City Council has worked closely with city staff to accomplish our goals, and we were delighted to get the chance to continue those efforts during the next two years.

Wow, reading Vic Corey’s letter paraphrasing an interview with this so called prophet Mark Taylor (Public Forum, Dec. 28) just proves that the cult mentality has fully taken root in Trump’s Republican party.
