MUMBAI, India – In a recent MSNBC interview I described President Donald Trump as a “brain-eating disease.”

I did so because his indecent behavior, and nonstop outrageous tweets and actions, force you as a commentator into a terrible choice: either ignore it all and risk…

It sadness me that we have young people in this country that willfully destroy our history when they obviously do not understand anything about history. How many statues must the country lose before this activity is stopped?

Statues are erected because the people at that point in time want to honor…

General Hugh Shelton is the greatest leader that North Carolina produced in my lifetime.

I don't think there is any doubt about it.

For more than 30 years, this man was in critical positions of leadership for this country.

I cannot imagine anyone else who has a resume anywhere close to that.

He is…

I would like to thank Nash County Sheriff Keith Stone, the members of his department and the Tar River Regional Drug Task Force for all their efforts in removing drugs from our county and the communities of the county.

The members of law enforcement locally, statewide and federally do an excellent…

The House Judiciary Committee just voted to make it impossible for a state to always keep people convicted of violent offenses from carrying concealed weapons.

That was just a detail in a very long day and really dreadful debate about the right to bear arms. In a normal world it might be the talk…

It is pathetic the way Congress acts.

They play around like peacocks and cannot get anything constructive done.

They are just there for the pay and the perks that go with being a member of Congress.

No wonder they score so low every time they have one of those polls where they ask the public who…

The participation of Patillo Middle School and Stocks Elementary School in a new pilot program to assist children experiencing trauma in their lives promises to pay dividends to all who participate.

Teachers, administrators and staff  at the schools are working with the NC Resilience and…

North Carolina has collected less state revenue so far than projected for the 2017-18 fiscal year, to the tune of about $134 million. Alarm about this would be premature – we’ve learned in recent years not to panic based on only a few months of data – but the trend does…

I am calling about the police chief's pension.

I don't have any problems with it. As far as I concerned he has earned that pension.

Police work is very stressful. There is not a more stressful job these days.

As he met the criteria, which he is bound to have done, then he is entitled to…

I am calling in response to a recent Letter to the Editor about better education.

In the first paragraph, he states schools are failing our low-income children.

No, they are failing all of our children because teachers have to focus so much on poor behavior that they cannot teach to smarter…
