Donald Trump is riding a wave of popularity, at least by Trump standards.

The president's job approval rating hit 44.6 percent this week in the RealClearPolitics average of polls. That is the highest it has been since March 2017. And while that is not high by any measure, it is good for Trump,…

My father used to talk about a recurring dream he had in which he was walking into a beautiful white building with grand columns, knowing that it was his new home. When he was elected president, he said the image finally made sense to him. Once in the White House, he never had the dream again.

Thank you for your generous donation to the Moravian Church's mountain retreat and conference center.

Sure, odds are you've never visited this facility in Ashe County, and you might not be a Moravian. But state legislators are sending $75,000 of your tax dollars to the church's Laurel Ridge Camp,…

In North Carolina and across the country, rank-and-file Democrats are counting on a big blue wave to wash over congressional, legislative and local elections this year, as well as over gubernatorial contests in the majority of states that, unlike ours, elect their governors in non-presidential…

After hearing what is apparently taking place in our General Assembly we have to ask why we even need 170 members in the General Assembly? We could save millions of dollars, free up lots of office space and greatly simplify state government if we permanently furloughed 150 or more of them. They…
