Hundreds of people may or may not have rallied Tuesday night in front of the Rocky Mount Police Department, Nash County Sheriff’s Office and Sharpsburg Police Department. They may or may not have chanted, celebrated and cheered the quick response of area law enforcement officers in the rescue…

Go ahead and laugh at Donald Trump’s claims that he was foiled by a finicky microphone on Monday night, but I can relate. When I write a bad column, it’s all my keyboard’s fault.

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.

If you are not happy with the system, you don’t turn to violence, you educate yourself so that when you go to the ballot box, you can vote for…

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

You just never know.

If you get wounded the government has to take care of you.

Every time someone throws away a dollar or more on a lottery ticket bought in North Carolina, it makes state officials very happy.

In 2015-16, the state found 2.39 billion reasons to be happy. That’s how much money the N.C. Education Lottery grossed in the last fiscal year.
