Young people have totally unrealistic expectations of marriage.

They have been coddled and sheltered and told all their lives they are brilliant and wonderful.

They expect to find in a marriage partner that same sort of idea.

Sorry but that person doesn't exist.

My comment is in response to the Speak Up on Sept. 7.

Police do not have too much power.

They have limitations and restraints as do all of us who have jobs.

Are there some who are too quick to anger?

Of course, however, there are many other occupations such as doctors, emergency response personnel,…

Congratulations to Piggly Wiggly grocery stores marking your 100th anniversary.

There are many qualities I enjoy about your store.

First, I enjoy the personal service.

Someone is always willing to help you and greeting you with a smile.

I read the comment from the Speak Up caller in the paper on Sept. 3 and just had to shake my head. What that caller suggested is one of the oldest political tricks in the books.

Most people are aware that Angela Bryant is a liberal Democrat but I have never seen this newspaper take it this far.

Such bias extremity.

Mrs. Bryant, what is so difficult about where and how to vote?

The sun is not getting hotter.

Actually this summer's temperatures were not all that high.

In my opinion, very questionable leadership has caused Elizabeth City State University to suffer.

ECSU is the smallest institution in the University of North Carolina System, and one of five historically black colleges and universities in this system. ECSU is struggling for its very existence. The…

I don't agree with the column that consuming porn online is safe.

Who is this person?

Pornography is addictive.

With the internet porn is just a click away.

That is terrible.

There is nothing safe about it.

The problem of illegal immigration is too hard. It’s too tough a nut to crack. Or so the thinking goes.

You have to let all the people in, and once here, you have to let them stay. Doing anything else is inhumane. Doing anything at all is too difficult.

Imagine actually enforcing the borders.…
