If you walk in my Windsor office, you’ll likely notice a wrestling championship proudly displayed across from my desk. It says WCW World Television Champion.
To the Editor:
Last month, on Sept. 14 (the Feast of the Holy Cross), was the 700th Anniversary of the death of the greatest poet of all time, Dante Alighieri. On that day in the year 1321, he passed from this world into the “Paradiso” that he envisioned in the splendid “Divine Comedy.”
Many individuals chose their own career paths due to a specific passion or strong calling.
The shameful exit from Afghanistan, the crisis at the southern border and mind-blowing multi-trillion-dollar spending plans have grabbed the headlines of late, but other Biden blunders are already hitting us closer to home. Take the results of the president’s wrong-headed energy policies, fo…
I recently saw that Twiggy, the model and fashion icon of the 1960’s, celebrated her 72nd birthday. It is just another reminder of how quickly time passes. Her real name is Leslie Hornby, if you care to test your friends with a bit of trivia.
I have followed the opinion page of the Chowan Herald with moments of frustration or sadness and with some moments of hope. There was a recent message that stood out: a letter to the editor brings our attention to 2 Timothy 4:3,4: “There will come a time when people will not tolerate sound t…

I passed by a cotton field recently and noticed that it was beginning to turn white. It brought back memories of my days when cotton was “King” in the south. This was prior to the era of mechanization and, though highly profitable, was very labor intensive.
“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts …”
There have been many days recently that I have wished so hard that heaven had a phone, so I could talk to my dad, grandma and grandpa just one more time.
Time out, those two words have probably been heard or said by many. Though the context in which it is used may vary, the definition in itself remains the same.
