More From Speak Up

January 02, 2018

I am calling in regard to some recent comments pertaining to President Donald Trump.

I just want to say even though he won the presidency, I think people need to understand that not everyone supports him.

To see some of the comments such as what he did in the past should not matter now and that he…

I would like to know why the city of Rocky Mount continues to give City Councilman Reuben Blackwell and the OIC $50,000 to do a highway construction class in which you only receive a certificate to be a flagman, the person who holds the stop sign.

The carpentry class is nothing more than a safety…

Thank you, Rocky Mount, for the beautiful decorations that were downtown in some of the store windows, and also at the Imperial Centre and the Rocky Mount Mill area.

Everyone should take a ride through before the decorations are taken down.

They are really beautiful.

I had only one Christmas wish this year.

It was that Ebenezer Trump would be visited by the ghost of Christmas past, present and future.

Maybe ghosts like Thomas Payne, Abraham Lincoln and Sojourner Truth would be good candidates and that he would become the most decent and honorable man that this…

I would like to say kudos to the wonderful lady who helped me find my car in the Walmart parking lot recently.

Thank you so much.

I like the idea of sending young convicts to fight our foreign wars. It has to be a free offer extended to them; you cannot coerce anyone, but you can make them a deal.

If you go over there and fight for a year or two in the war, then when you come home your criminal record will be expunged,…

I find it very interesting that every since President Donald Trump has been in office he has been trying to stir up a war with North Korea.

Guess what happened to the Kia automobiles that were produced in South Korea? 

There was a major recall on these vehicles because drivers could…

There are hard working dedicated individuals throughout the federal government and not just in the armed forces.

All these civil services do a great job; the post office for instance.

They work crazy, long hours.

The Department of Defense is much more wasteful than the post office, which is…

The city of Rocky Mount gets a grant from the Futrell Maudlin Foundation to pay people to pick up litter.

People, we have missed the point. You put a stop to littering by enforcing the law.

You do so with heavy fines and public service time.

I recently visited the outdoor living Nativity scene in downtown Rocky Mount by First Baptist Church.

It was way better than I thought it was going to be.

They did a real fine job and I think everyone should take all of their children there next year to see it.

They did a great job.…
