Who would think that here in America, one of the richest countries in the world, we would have a problem with our people going hungry? But it is a problem.
Japan recently turned over to the United States enough weapons-grade nuclear material to make dozens of nuclear bombs. This was one of President Barack Obama’s few foreign policy “successes,” as part of his nuclear disarmament initiative. But his foreign policy successes may be more dangerous than his “failures.”
I am hoping you or the chief of police (or both of you together) will consider an editorial regarding how to treat stoplights when the power is off. (Editor’s note: Intersections with non-working traffic lights are supposed to be treated as four-way stops, according to state law.)
RALEIGH — During most of its history, North Carolina was a state of widely dispersed residents. There were no truly big cities and many small towns. Particularly along the state’s rivers and streams, you’d find a thriving mill town or farming village every few miles.

Have you ever noticed that just about the only people who ever talk about trickle-down economics are liberal Democrats?
We can only imagine the pain that Deborah Dunklin Tipton continues to bear over the death of her son Robert E. Tipton, Jr. My own brother died when he was 6. My parents never got over this loss their entire lives removing Rodney’s portrait, pictures and possessions to try to minimize their grief.
Several government agencies, particularly the IRS, FBI, DOD, State Department and NSA have made serious errors, with criticism and condemnation from both the media and the public.
THUMBS UP to Guilford County Schools for the good news received this week that the district’s student dropout rate declined for the 2012-13 school year. This is the sixth year in a row that the dropout rate for Guilford has declined.
