The great American actress Katherine Hepburn was once asked to assess the acting ability of a certain young thespian.

Hepburn said that watching her act was like peering into someone's head. “You can see the wheels move.” “Click.” “Click.” “Click.…

It has been more than 60 years since I became eligible to register to vote.

During the past years I have made it a point to cast my vote in local, state and national elections.

I have always tried to vote for the candidate who would serve the best interests of the people they represent.

Early voting kicked off with a bang last week, with Nash County leading the state in the number of voters who cast ballots on the first day.

I travel to Fort Walton Beach, Fla., every May or June.

I am disgusted by our roads, the grass and the weeds.

When you hit Fayetteville, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida, they are so clean, neat and cut.

You don't see tall grass.

Every day I travel from Rocky Mount to Tarboro on U.S. 64…

We four former Chief Justices of the Supreme Court of North Carolina, two Democrats and two Republicans, are writing to express our support for the re-election of Senior Associate Justice Robert H. (Bob) Edmunds in November.

I see a lot of houses around for sale.

They sit there and they don't move.

If the prices were slashed these houses would be selling.

They are not selling because people perceive the prices are too high.

You can make it all go away today.

The histrionics, commercials, bad language, bad hair, bad politics. All of it.

Just hop on down to your friendly county elections office and ask for a ballot. Mark it up, slide it through the machine. Put a sticker on your shirt. Be done with it.
