City Project.
Ignite High Point.
We continue to read headlines in the paper about these subjects and what do we hear, confusion.
Can I suggest something? What name comes up when you think of success?  High Point University President Nido Qubein.  This man and his team not only has everyone in High Point sitting up and paying attention, he has put High Point University on the national map.  This man is a true visionary in getting things done in such a way that has people all over America envious of HPU.
Why pay big bucks to out of state people, just ask for his help. I bet he and his team could come up with something that would make our city more attractive to visitors and make all of us feel proud of our hometown.

Jesus said love your neighbor ... and enemy
As general rule I don’t respond to letters, but this one time I will. It was suggested recently that I didn’t read the Word, that my comments must have come from something I heard.
I am very familiar with the Apostle Paul’s statement and I knew someone would go there. You see, these so-called conservatives always piecemeal God’s word giving half-truths as Satin does. That is written so go to Matthew 15:8 where it says this: “People draweth nigh unto me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.” Verse 9: “But in vain they do worship me teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”  Skip to 18: “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts murder adulteries and so on therefore I will continue to do as it says in John 2:5: “Whatever he says do it.”
I’ll continue to eat the whole book, but I know that Jesus came to fulfill the law with just two commandments — love God and love your neighbor. On these two hang all the laws and the prophets (Matthew 22: 37-40). Nothing about running people down or demonizing them. Love them, yes, even your enemies.

Thanks for Army band performance
A special thank you to the High Point Arts Council for arranging the concert by the Army Ground Forces Band at Oak Hollow Festival Park on May 23. The music contained a variety of pieces that appealed to all ages.  The setting over the lake was beautiful. Just wish more people could have been there.
Thanks again, Arts Council.
