When I walked away from Donald Trump's Republican Party, I did not walk away from conservatism. Instead, I gave up on a political party whose policies had become indefensible.

I support a pathway to citizenship for the "dreamers," but my approach to immigration is far less expansive than that of…

We as a society deal with death all kind of ways, however it happens.

Does the newspaper believe that Sunday, the day that most citizens take to praise God, to present facts about black males dying in homicides on the front page?

This was a sad day when deaths of black citizens were injected with…

Thank you for running the recent Fayetteville Observer editorial about the demise of the film industry in North Carolina. But I don't buy the premise that Republicans in Raleigh have not given movie makers incentives.

They have given them plenty: An incentive to stay away, an incentive to look…

Once again, a madman has entered an American school with an automatic weapon and wrought carnage upon innocent victims.

Recently I read with dismay the comments from the caller complaining about the number of homeless people in our area standing on street corners begging to motorists passing by.

I was reminded of a passage in the Bible where Jesus was teaching his disciples on the Mount of Olive.

He said “I…

I am concerned about the efficiency of the U.S. Postal service.

They seem to be either losing, misplacing or delivering to a wrong address.

I was supposed to receive a prescription for one of my medications by mail in February 2017.

According to the postal service, they received it initially and…
