I recently read an article in The Daily Advance entitled “Brown laments low Coastie interest in Elizabeth City.” I hope the article and the comments made by Cmdr. Bruce Brown will serve as an eye-opener for our state and local officials. Here we have a situation where one of the largest…

What in the world is going on these days in Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s mind? I had to check my calendar recently after I heard the former mayor of New York City tell us that there were no serious attacks on America by Islamic terrorists before President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary…

So things are surely becoming complicated for the old North State. One thing I read in a courtroom in Atlanta, Georgia, when I was a witness to a crime has stayed in my mind ever since. It was on a plaque and it said, “If you always tell the truth you never have to remember what you said!…
