The executive committee of the Pasquotank Democratic Party nominated civic activist Linwood Gallop to fill the late Bill Sterritt’s at-large seat on the county’s board of commissioners Saturday afternoon.

I have several post Thanksgiving topics I was hoping to cover today.
In a tri-meet held at Pasquotank Tuesday evening between the Panthers, Northeastern and Northside-Pinetown wrestling teams, Northeastern left with two wins.
He reminds me of the last kid picked in the sandlot football game. He isn’t very big, and he doesn’t have the strongest arm.
It makes me sad to see Bob Steinburg involved with the city of Elizabeth City as the city’s lobbyist.
Let the games begin, and I’m not talking reindeer games here. I’m talking about the political gamesmanship already beginning in the congress. Most of the rhetoric of revenge and retribution is coming from one man and one political party. For any of us who hoped the 2020 election would end the reign of the orange king, boy were we wrong.
In a normal market, creditors demand higher interest from borrowers to whom they lend money for longer periods of time.

Few tropes in North Carolina political discourse annoy me more than the claim that Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson is “fascinating.” In a state that elected Jesse Helms to five terms in the U.S. Senate, a political career fueled by bigotry hardly registers as unusual. The victims of Robinson’s — and Helms’s — myriad prejudices would not view the presence of a bigot in public office as an occasion for curiosity. Robinson is, in fact, a mere recrudescence of a familiar political type.
I should have returned from a summer trip to Canada and Alaska via Texas.
The U.S. soccer team seems to have captured part of the national imagination, again. We have advanced in the World Cup, though I imagine most Americans do not understand how or why we have advanced.
Bertie County photographer Tom Brennan has come a long way from that $1.50 plastic drugstore camera he used to shoot images for his first show in 1978.
Throughout the history of our region, country stores have been a vital part of the cultural and financial fabric of our communities.
“And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” — Luke 2:13-14
Author Kathryn Louise Wood says her writing is inspired by places, history and what she refers to as the “what-ifs of the world.”
Key West’s Tropic Cinema is now showing a series of films that it calls Holidays at the Tropic.
