Some are apparently confused on what Black Lives Matter is all about.
The fact that Gov. Roy Cooper refused to allow the parents of UNC football players to attend the Carolina-Syracuse game is a very telling example of the ludicrous power grab the governor has been enjoying since he first started realizing he could control people’s lives with a simple “COVID-1…
When I think about who to vote for, I don’t consider party, personality, color of skin, sex, etc.; I look at a person’s track record along with their policies.
For centuries, Christianity was expanded and nurtured by the Catholic Church until the Reformation of the Protestant movement. Protestant worship by the new denominations was suppressed by the Catholic Church. Then in the 1600s, pilgrims and Protestants came to the new continent to practice …
I was happy to see the NFL start on Thursday. The champion K.C. Chiefs — I guess I can still call them that, because I can’t call Washington the Redskins anymore because the indigenous population might be offended — played the Houston Texans. No trouble with saying their name right now, I do…
As the subject of debates comes up more and more often, I can’t help but review Sleepy Joe Biden’s gaffes over the past months when he has forgotten what it was his handlers had told him to say about certain subjects and instead has simply uttered some sort of jumbled, confusing response tha…

For the past two months, there have been numerous articles written about the City of Rocky Mount’s proposed construction of a hotel, parking garage and residential and retail development in Edgecombe County.
I come before you with only a pen and paper petitioning you, God, to hear my cries and the tears that keep coming non-stop — this pain has come too often, innocent people killed for hate crimes.
The liberal Democrats must believe that mail-in ballot voting for president will give Joe Biden an advantage over President Donald Trump in the upcoming election in November.
I noted an old crime as a current event in a recent letter. While that was certainly poor research on my part, it caused me to ask myself some questions:
Harry Truman once said, “The country has to awaken now and then to the fact that the people are responsible for the government they get. And when they elect a man to the presidency who doesn’t take care of the job, they’ve got nobody to blame but themselves.”
I generally enjoy reading the Telegram’s “Letters to the Editor” since they provide an uncensored view into the thoughts and opinions of our local citizens. It is however disturbing when repeated statements are made that are clearly at odds with reality.
If Joe Biden is elected and pushes Obama’s agenda as a puppet for the liberals who loved Obama, this is what this country will be facing: Higher taxes, cuts in Social Security and pension plans, threats to 401K and tax deferred saving plans.
