The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is a bad deal for North Carolina and in spite of Duke and Dominion’s slick, big money push to rush it through, it will not go unchallenged.

Their high pressure gas transmission pipeline, behind schedule and still lacking approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory…

Much has been made of Melania Trump’s absence from the capital.

But our new president’s most intense, primal, torrid relationship is in full “The War of the Roses” bloom here. And it is not with his beautiful, reserved wife. It’s with the press, the mirror for the…

I want to call and nominate Judy Mesko's recent Letter to the Editor for letter of the year.

And now, things that are Really Happening in the world of Donald Trump.

The New England Patriots are a dynasty. In the years to come, they will be viewed as such.

Super Bowl LI (51) was the fifth Super Bowl won by the Pats.

I am calling just to say a big thank to the nice lady out on N.C. 97 from old U.S. 301, N.C. 97 West going toward Leggett. She is picking up trash almost every day and trying to put an end to all the littering that is done in that area.
