A new lawsuit alleges a congressional redistricting plan drawn by Republicans in Raleigh is “one of the worst partisan gerrymanders in modern American history.”

It is not just a wild assertion made for effect. The plaintiffs said they can back it up.

The lawsuit, filed by the Southern…

Hillary Clinton continues to baffle the experts with her “lack of knowledge and ineptness” handling classified emails – both received and transmitted. Yet these same folks – FBI, DOJ, Executive Branch, Democrats in Congress and the news media – hold her and her minions…

I would just like to send a great thank you to Angela Southerland at the Walmart Pharmacy in Rocky Mount.

For three times I have had problems with getting my prescriptions refilled and every time she has been able to work out whatever the kink are to get it refilled.

The other columnists have reliable keyboards. I’m not saying it’s a conspiracy, but they…

Black Lives Matter and its supporters should be ashamed, but they are not because they have an agenda and it is not what is best for black Americans.

Turn signals are standard equipment in all vehicles, to my understanding, and they need to be used.
