Your View: Guest Column - Election is about a failed Obama administration

Odd, is it not, that the only person fired for incompetence by the leader of a Democrat Party that claims Republican are waging a "war on women," is a … woman?!

Stan Spangle Sr.: Reports say some resent vets hiring program

I have seen and heard for several months about comments and hints of pushback about the Federal Veteran Hiring Preference and the Merit Systems Protection Board causing resentment among non-military federal civilian employees.

Your View: Guest Column - Guilford is organizing to address Ebola

Health Centers are critical partners in the containment of communicable disease outbreaks. Recently our medical centers, both nonprofit, and for-profit, have done a great job of coordinating with the local public health department, health care providers, school systems, large employers, and other key industries involved in health care management during the heightened awareness of the Ebola virus.

Your View: Fight disease; don’t eat animals

U.S., state, and municipal health authorities are working overtime and spending millions of dollars to stem the spread of Ebola, which has killed just one person here.

Your View: Help economy, don’t demonize wealthy

I hate to “reply to a reply ” but I can’t let Tom Taydus’ recent letter “The math does not lie” in response to my earlier letter go unanswered.

Your View: Support children; approve sales-tax hike

As a parent, I know that my children are always watching me and learning.  This is a double-edged sword.

Your View: How bad could Ebola possibly get?

Will someone please turn out the lights in this Obama White House, as they all appear to have gone asleep? That would be a reasonable request, except that the helm of our national ship of state is involved, and the fate of all its citizenry. Not enough that our national defense from terror abroad, but our national physical health is being compromised by this administration’s politics.

Your View: Vote Bronnert for City Council

Ward 4 and our city needs Jim Bronnert on our City Council.  If one wants to find out what kind of man Bronnert is, one only needs to see what he has accomplished

Your View: Guest Column - Vote for those who will serve the people

Somewhere along the historic line political roles have been reversed.  I was always taught that every elected public servant from either political party starting from the President of the U.S. on down to the City Council member were to report and serve the people they represented. After all, the United States is a republic wrapped together in a democracy.

Your View: We need real change and hope

I say to my conservative friends and others, we must get out and vote for Thom Tillis Nov. 4.  A vote for Tillis will help remove Harry Reid from the Senate leader.

Your View: The facts don’t suit Republican ears

Jo Branham Callahan says (Your View, Sept.30) I didn't do my homework in my previous letter. Really? President Bush absolutely lied to get himself an unnecessary, ill-advised war in Iraq, partly because he hoped to gain control of Iraqi oil, and because he believed it would get him a higher ranking among U. S. presidents.
