Dear fellow citizens of Rocky Mount,

This week was Sunshine Week, not that we saw a lot of it, either meteorologically or metaphorically. What we got for the start of the week was dark clouds, some wind and even snow.

Once again, President Trump has made a cowardly, cynical and monumentally stupid retreat on the issue of guns. No one should have expected otherwise.

Forget everything he said in the wake of the Parkland shooting about the urgent need for meaningful action. Trump now takes a position that will…

I just returned home Sunday after having open heart surgery.

On Monday the phone starts ringing with calls from telemarketers.

I don't feel like talking to them.

Why can't there be some legislation done to keep these people from calling you when you are trying to rest and recover at home?…
