Vince Wheeler: Just thinkin’ ...

That idea under discussion by folks in Charlotte for moving coal ash to Charlotte Douglas International Airport sounds pretty intriguing. And from what some environmentalists are saying, it’s a much better solution for storage than putting it in a pond beside a drinking water supply.

Thomas Sowell: The Left versus minorities

If anyone wanted to pick a time and place where the political left’s avowed concern for minorities was definitively exposed as a fraud, it would be now — and the place would be New York City, where far left Mayor Bill de Blasio has launched an attack on charter schools, cutting their funding, among other things.

Your View: Guest Column - Montlieu site is good fit for Academy at Central

There is an important vote on Thursday for our High Point schools. With one vote, the Guilford County Board of Education has the opportunity to reduce overcrowding in one school, High Point Central, and pave the way for a new future at another school, The Academy at Central.

Your View: Guest Column - What if the power went out permanently?

High Point has just gone through one tough time. Thousands went without power. But as I walked around my neighborhood that looked like a war zone, I had but one thought. What if it had been 100 percent.

Clarence Page: Rep. Paul Ryan’s ‘inner city’ blues

Alas, poor Paul Ryan. I take the House Budget chairman at his word that he did not intend to offend African Americans with his statements about how the culture of some men “in our inner cities in particular” does not value hard work.

Your View: Guest Column - Guilford school officials support teachers

It is difficult to put into words how thankful all of my fellow educators and I are that the Guilford County Board of Education is investigating the best way to protect education, even if it means putting  their own neck on the line.

Mike Hughes: Disarmament without real security is a mistake

Would Russian tanks have rolled into Crimea if Ukraine had nuclear weapons? That question has recently been asked by a lot of Ukrainians.

Other View Editorial: U.S. must keep pressure on Russia

Chuck Bino: Random thoughts on financial obligations

Recently, an advertisement for legal services that I’ve never seen before on TV got my attention.  It wasn’t hawking financial assistance for a bad hip operation, mesothelioma, denied disability benefits, or effects from a bad drug. If overwhelmed by debt, it stated that the best way to improve one’s credit score was to declare personal bankruptcy.
