More From Speak Up

I am calling in response to the person who said they think the price of gasoline should be $4-$5 per gallon.

My question to this person is, don't you realize everything on the store shelves come over the highways and when the price of fuel goes up, the price of everything on the store shelves go up…

The old family unit with the father in charge is ancient history.Father knows best and all that.

Families are headed up by single moms. The father is still in the picture, but he is not in charge of anything.

He provides financial support, but mom makes all the big decisions like where the…

I am calling about the old tent revivals.

You don’t see them any longer.They used to be all the rage.

A traveling preacher would come to town and hold a tent revival.

The idea was to get people to attend and get moved by the spirit and turn over a new leaf.

I guess nowadays we rely on TV to…

Parents are not doing their children any favors when they pile up a bunch of money to leave an inheritance.

Grandparents, too.

Children deserve a good home life and a good upbringing, but beyond that they really don’t deserve anything else.

You are not doing them any favors when you give them…

Thanks to the city of Rocky Mount that we as citizens receive informative, helpful tips included with utility bills.

How helpful it would be for us to know where are the emergency shelters within Rocky Mount and the Twin Counties.

I would like to make a complaint about Pineview Cemetery.

If you haven't seen what it looks like, you need to ride there and look at it.

With our tax money, nothing is being done out there.

You cannot even see where the people are buried.

Please assure me and the other citizens of Rocky Mount that when you widen U.S. 301 that you will not be filling in the area over by Lowe's or across the street from Sam's Clubs.

Those areas already flood.

If you fill them in, that water is going somewhere else, probably in someone's house.

I read in the paper recently that Shelly Willingham was given the honor of a living legend of historically black colleges and universities.

There is not a person I know who deserves it more.

He is a very nice man, whether you are giving it to a black man, a Caucasian man or anyone.

I am glad to see…

I wonder how many more excuses Hilary Clinton will have for her presidential loss?

I have not read her book nor do I intend to, however, I have read bits and pieces and heard excerpts from it.

Why doesn't she just take responsibility, take ownership and own up to the fact that she lost because the…

I am turning to Speak Up to find some answers.

I cannot go to the school as I am afraid it will be held against my children.

This involves children in special education classes in high school.

Some have been placed in what they call an inclusion classroom.

I was assured that there would be two…
