I am tired of news commentators, reporters, political candidates, you name it, people of all kinds criticizing and blaming President Barack Obama for the mess that is the Middle East.

I walked into the Division of Motor Vehicles office on Avent Ferry Road at 9:20 a.m.

Donald Trump hasn't endorsed John McCain, who is running for re-election to the Senate, because he said that McCain has never stood up for vets properly.

Please help, I don't have the money to place an ad in the paper about a white bunny that has been found on Amherst Drive.
