Speak Up

September 23, 2017

A good number of people like to live just out beyond the city limits.

They like the things a city has to offer, but they don't like city taxes or the city meddling in their affairs. They figure it is the best of both worlds.

I've heard it described as country living and city convenience.

I just wanted to leave a big thank you to Mr. Lagrange for his Letter to the Editor that was published Sept. 6

It was a very good letter and I just want him to know that I don't know him, but I would like him to know it is very much appreciated.

The economy is heating up, but gas is still stubbornly cheap.

Gas should be $4-$5 per gallon but it is not.

Before the hurricanes, it was $2 per gallon.

Gas prices are being kept down artificially to prop up sales of big trucks and SUVs.

There was more traffic this summer than ever before, and it…

I am calling to comment on the article about the high-speed chase in which the fellow from Halifax County was chased all the way from Scotland Neck into Tarboro.

Excellent letter to the editor on Sept. 4th by Jack Dunn, where does the move to punish previous actions in history end?

It wouldn't have to go up if the freeloading county commissioners would quit taking those high priced trips to learn more on how to run a little two-horse town county.

I would like to make a comment about a recent Letter to the Editor.

I would like to tell the writer that he was doing OK his article with information if it is correct until he got to his last paragraph and he condemns all Democrats as morally bankrupt secular progressives within the Democratic…

I am calling about Hurricane Harvey and the devastation that was done in Texas.

I think if there is anyone, no matter where they are in the United States, who wants to go and carry their boats to help people they should go.

I think we need to help feed these people and make sure they have a dry…

I would like to respond to the individual who called the Speak Up stating our chief of police should be found guilty and sent to prison with the rest of the criminals.

Isn't that the most ridiculous thing one can say about our chief of police who protects us and all the police who work under him…

Once again, an outstanding essay has been written by a person who is against capitalism and in my estimation against democracy as well.

My suggestion is that he or she remove himself or herself from this country.
