Road repairs in residential areas in both Nash and Edgecombe counties are sadly lacking.

While areas of interest such as the downtown area get all the attention, which now our increased taxes pay for, homeowners pay taxes with threats of names in the newspapers or loss of property or interest fines…

I would like to have more clarification from Chief Moore about shooting into a house.

It doesn't matter what room a person is in, it seems to me if someone shoots at your house, they are attempting to shoot the people inside.

It’s so sad - efforts by some people here to keep black and white folks in our local community from getting along peacefully any more. the recent clamor to tear down the 100-year-old Confederate monument on Falls Road is an example of what I’m talking about.

Those statues have nothing…

It's time we had a national referendum on defense spending.

You could do it in one day, a one-item vote.

It could be stated real simple, just say the Pentagon budget is $600 billion per year, do you favor slashing defense spending in half?”

The current taxes for Social Security, Social Security disability and Medicare tax for 2017 are:…

I would really like to thank the Telegram for listening the public’s outcry and doing a more thorough and in-depth investigation on the crime stats that were given by the chief.

I am glad that business owners spoke out sharing their experiences and also former Chief Manley’s honesty in…

As a candidate and as president, Donald Trump has hardly been a shrinking wallflower, and he is always eager to engage in bombastic kindergarten feuds at the drop of a tweet.
