More From Speak Up

The retired federal employee’s letter in the paper came as a shock to me.

The fact that sitting congressman and senators can vote on the pensions of retired federal employees, I had no idea that such a thing could occur.

It sounds like it is illegal to change the pensions after they have been…

There is a great deal of sadness with how the time capsule was unearthed at Braswell Park by students of Lincoln Elementary School in 1967.

it was never publicized or put in the paper.

In June the city clerk's office responded to us that the time capsule had been dug up. Unfortunately some of…

The rich have it made in this country. They can buy these big luxury SUVs. Poor people cannot buy them.

The rich can fill their gas tanks up with cheap gas and can drive to the moon and back on the cheap.

Poor people cannot do that. The rich have it made here.

You get the feeling Colin Kaepernick is missing those big NFL paydays he used to enjoy.

He blames collusion for his predicament.

Actually it is the case that he is on the downside of his NFL career.

My premiums the day he took office were $225/month.

Now they have gone to $527/month.

I wonder if anyone else has had their premiums go up like mine have.

I was reading an article about the reservoir being closed for safety reasons.

Why are not the other landings closed?

The one at the park, the water goes up and down daily, and it is not safe there either.

The one at Battle Park, they would have to keep it closed all the time.

I am handicapped and…

My comment pertains to the Speak Up stating teachers are not entitled to the pay they receive or even raises because students at the college level cannot read and it is their fault.

I say to that individual and others who believe that, a teacher teaches and a student learns.

It is incumbent for…

I am calling about the caller who thinks the price of diesel fuel is unrelated to the price of gasoline.

Therefore the price of goods hauled by diesel fuel burning vehicles…
