Paul Ryan has long been cast as Congress’ Boy Scout: earnest, honest and brimming with the best intentions, whether you agree with his proposals or not.

Donald Trump is putting an ugly end to that.

Or, rather, Ryan himself is, with his example of utter submission to Trump. Other Republicans…

I would like to respond to the Letter to the Editor in Thursday’s Rocky Mount Telegram headlined, “Trump’s candidacy tapped into the plight of the U.S. middle class” by Mr. Peele. The shallowness and hypocrisy of the analysis boggles the mind. Here are some assertions that…

I am calling about the recent Speak Up column where some person called in and wondered why the Speak Up columns were solely about Trump.

I don’t know what paper this caller has been reading but the paper hasn’t been very positive about Donald Trump.

I am an older lady and I wish the Telegram would not write all of these horrible things about these people that we have elected to run our country now.

It certainly was encouraging to see dozens of city residents come together Friday to exchange ideas about downtown revitalization efforts.

Ratio Design, a company hired by the city to develop a master plan for the downtown district, hosted an Open House meeting at the Imperial Centre, where people…

The first time I lived in the nation’s capital, Ronald Reagan was president. The conservatives I knew there were proud of their movement’s accomplishments, in such areas as reforming taxes and challenging the Soviet empire, as well as disappointed by inadequate progress on such issues…

Whoever is responsible for the Speak Up columns that are in the paper daily, I am trying to wonder if you are pro-Trump, are you alt.right?

I've been looking at this paper for a week now and for the last few days it seems very one-sided.

Now you are thinking about Hispanics being conservative.…
