I have strong opinions. You probably do, too. Most people have deeply felt convictions about at least some matters of public controversy. Given the right context, most are willing to express their views to others and debate their disagreements.

How do we form our opinions? When we are children, our…

Reading the positive news stories in the paper is always welcome, but there are events that make me stand and cheer! Events like the prayer meetings for law enforcement and the public schools, and the recent decision by Camden County Sheriff Tony Perry to put our nation’s national motto, "In…

In response to the article written by William F. West about Coast Guard Cmdr. Bruce Brown’s lament about low Coastie interest in Elizabeth City, I’d like to say I am reminded of the expression, “Giving goes both ways.”

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

The line for a ticket was 30 people deep and every chair in the waiting area was filled. Another dozen customers stood along the walls. I learned later that about 100 people waited outside when the…
