Your View: Guest Column - Out of state money attempts to unseat Hagan

BY THEODORE ZIOLKOWSKI

There is no such thing as a perfect candidate to vote for. Sometimes we are forced to pick  between the “good the bad and the ugly.”
The candidate who is average, the candidate who is bad or the candidate who is terrible.
In North Carolina we have to pick between an average Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan and terrible Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate Thom Tillis.

Clarence Page: Impeachment: Palin's crusade, GOP's headache

Sarah Palin has joined a rising drumbeat of Republicans who call for President Barack Obama's impeachment. Democrats can barely conceal their glee.

Tina Dupuy: Immigrants and the Cootie Offense

You don't have to say anything if the police don hazardous materials suits — the message is clear: the protesters are gross.
Dangerously gross.
And if they're posing a public health threat, it trumps all other matters and the contagion can be scrubbed away.

Mike Hughes: No strength, no peace

Independence Day was a perfect time to visit the Carolina Field of Honor at Triad Park in Kernersville. I’ve been to quite a few war memorials, and the Carolina Field of Honor is easily one of the best in the country. There’s still more work to be done at the site, and more donations are needed, but the central obelisk and fountain area is very impressive.

Robert Lindsay: Border chaos: Incompetence or by design?

The discovery of penicillin, splitting the atom and the vaccination for Polio boggle the mind.  Protecting America’s southern border (all borders for that matter) is easy by comparison.  Since April 2014,  an additional 292,000 people have come into America illegally. To put the number into perspective, that’s almost three times the population of High Point.

Your View: Are ‘Heart’ folks going wrong way?

Regarding the 'street diet' articles in the paper recently, apparently the We Heart High Point folks do not know their "beloved" High Point very well.

Your View: Bad election law brings bad results

Following the tragic death of Davidson County Commissioner Billy Joe Kepley, a long-serving and well respected commissioner, the Davidson County Republican Party per N.C. State Election Law gets to appoint a replacement to serve out his term. The Republican Party Executive Committee appointed Steve Shell to serve the remainder of Kepley’s current term.   Shell was the highest vote-getter in the primary election.

Paula Williams: Teachers take pride in seeing students grow

Twenty-five years ago this August, Doris Davis, then principal at Montlieu Elementary, took a chance by giving me a second-grade teaching position, and my journey with Guilford County Schools began.  I had stayed home with my own children while they were preschoolers, so when our youngest began elementary school, I went back to teaching in 1989.

Your View: Walker/Berger race will impact Tillis/Hagan battle

The outcome of Tuesday’s runoff election between Phil Berger Jr. and Mark Walker will not only determine the Republican nominee for the Sixth Congressional District race, but it will also have a potential negative impact on the upcoming Senate race between Thom Tillis and Kay Hagan.

Our View: Childish senators walk out on their responsibilities

It has become obvious that the state’s Republican leadership isn’t marching in lockstep as it runs North Carolina’s government.

Clarence Page: New border politics: Blame Obama first

As thousands of unaccompanied Central American children stream across his state's southern border, Texas Gov. Rick Perry took a paranoid turn.
