I am calling to say that I didn’t realize there was so much hatred in this world until after Donald Trump was elected to be president.

People are really allowing their true colors to come through.

There is so much hatred in the paper and on TV.

May God have mercy on all of us.…

President Barack Obama, doing a good deed for the Thanksgiving celebration, pardoned a turkey again this year, saving the bird from ending up on the dinner table, much to the delight of children everywhere.

I missed the annual…

America needs to back off from trying to get Israel to give up more land.

Gov. Pat McCrory seems to have questioned practically every aspect of North Carolina elections, and hard-working elections officials across the state patiently have listened and responded. But with each day, Democrat Roy Cooper’s lead in votes grows. It is time for McCrory to accept that…

I was calling to thank Bill Stancil for the wonderful article for Darrell Johnson. It really made it sound like Darrell.

Nash County commissioners made the right decision last week in requesting that Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools officials provide them with an estimate of what it would cost for the county to offer merit-based bonuses to locally-funded school employees.

I read with pleasure the article on the retirement of police officer K9 Chance.

I was so happy that he had a loving family to go home to.

It made me think about an article that I saw that the paper ran several years ago.

There was a program at the prison in Nashville and they took dogs that were…
