For the second time in less than six weeks, columnist Holly Audette has stated that renters do not pay property taxes. As Ms. Audette frequently tells us, she is a business owner, so I’m sure when Ms. Audette calculates what to charge her customers at her bed and breakfast, property taxes ar…

The great evil of our country is the white man. The white man is the problem. The white man is privileged. That’s what I got from Martha Johnson’s and Robert Reich’s columns in your newspaper this week.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “kangaroo court” convened earlier this week with only nine members, two of which claim to be Republican but we know that not to be true. U.S. Reps. Liz Cheney, R-Wyoming, and Adam Kinzinger, R-Illinois, are Republicans in name only and both are diehard opponents …

I read the recent column by Bob Schofield (The Daily Advance, July 21) saying that the GOP’s hysteria about the vaccine is killing people. I laughed out loud at such an ignorant statement. Apparently Schofield wants to be politically correct, but the facts tell a different story.

The author of the letter to the editor in your June 26th edition was right on — all lives matter.

Conservatives accept that problems are just a part of life. More accurately, they accept that other people's problems are just a part of life. Their own problems are of course a sign that some evil conspiracy or another is at work.

At this point in the Biden presidency, America is firmly divided into two groups. One that is completely embarrassed by Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris and one pretending that they aren’t. The fact that Biden has the authority to launch missiles when he can barely read off a telepromp…

After reading a writer’s letter to the editor titled “Womble’s claim of danger to deputies not shown,” I was reminded of a recent conversation I had with a young man pertaining to that very subject. I agreed with the letter writer.

I was interested to read Staff Writer Paul Nielsen’s story, “Council OKs $15 hourly wage for all full-time workers” in Thursday’s edition. I wonder how many readers understood that, aside from a few city workers, the wage increase will affect almost no one in Elizabeth City?

In response to your July 10 story about the new electric vehicle charging station at the McDonald’s at Tanglewood, what a great idea. It will be very handy for travelers who are always trying to make good time by being able to make one stop and “kill 3 birds with one stone”: eat lunch, use t…

The Chinese Communist Party has been buying silver by the truck load for a number of years. In so doing, it was presumed that the motive was to replace the American dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Now, the International Monetary Fund has a plan to flood the world’s economy with as mu…

Elizabeth City City Council member Johnnie Walton said during a recent city council meeting that the city has enough elementary schools, raising the question: Why do we need someone to start another one at Christ Episcopal Church?

I have read and accepted that many people in the Roman Empire thought that the followers of Jesus were cultists and cannibals who ate flesh and drank blood. They probably thought Jesus’ stories were just as ridiculous as some on the left now think that stories of Clintons and others drinking…
