Publicity for the upcoming total solar eclipse is making people more aware not to look directly at the sun. Why is it then that we look directly into the sun almost daily? On a sunny day when you drive, the reflections from the chrome and glass on other vehicles is blinding. It cannot be good for…

For the most part I ignore commercials, unless they are funny or have a dog in them.

But I saw one that got my immediate attention. I even felt the pride they had in their company, their product, their employees (showed their photos) and in their workplace they had an American flag prominently…

President Trump should pay close attention to the wise words of President John F. Kennedy when he said, “You should never negotiate out of fear, but never fear to negotiate.” And also to the words of President Eisenhower, “Show strength by being mild and quiet.…

Some gorillas dress up in suits and uniforms and fight holy wars over mythical truth. By now you've realized that I'm not writing about an animal like King Kong. I doubt that the really, large hairy gorillas have any knowledge or opinions about politics. I doubt that those gorillas fight wars,…

I look forward to going to my mailbox every day to pick up my mail. When doing this, I like to feel confident that only the mail that belongs to me is in my box. I also don’t like to have other people’s mail in my box.

Why? Because if I have other people’s mail in my box, my mail…

Kudos to Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools on its very low dropout rate.

I read the article, and then read the article again looking for the name of Kevin Sawyer. As the dropout and attendance coordinator for the district for the past decade he is mainly the one responsible for this feat. It…

I applaud the thought behind the National Night Out Against Crime event.
