Lights Go On at NC16 & Optimist Club Road
The lights will go on this week at the intersection of NC16 (bypass) and Optimist Club Road.  It may or may not make the intersection less deadly--but it won't do much to make it less troublesome.

Big Left And The Big Lie
They call it the Big Lie. Of course, I call it the Big Lie as well. Or the Great Lie. But what each of us means is something totally different. And only one of us is right.

Goodbye Is Tough Business For Pet Owners
The minute we welcome a pet into our life, we launch a process that will eventually lead to a painful goodbye. We know this deep down, but we push it aside until we can’t avoid it.

America Is Important

To Mask Or Not To Mask
In a commentary related to the decision of the Lincoln County Board of Education last week to end its mask mandate and to make masks optional effective September 29th, let's consider this:  in its current form, the mask mandate doesn't do much to protect your child.  That's not its intention.  It was designed to keep schools open and make the figures look better.

Confederate Monuments Go Down, Maoism Goes Up
This was a sad day for Virginia, for Dixie and for America. The work of famed French sculptor Antonin Mercié, in place on Monument Avenue for 130 years, was long considered one of the finest equine and military-themed statues in the world was taken down.

House Names Enchant Me
What’s more enchanting than a house with a name? I’m talking an official one painted on a swinging shingle out front such as “Wind Knoll” or “Cedar Run” or “Boone Farm.”

One More Remembrance
There were heroes and villains.  The villians were political and religious zealots determined to bring terrorism to the US.  The heroes included the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93, who kept one group of villains from accomplishing a fourth attack and gave their own lives to save others.  Saturday was the 20th anniversary of that day that changed lives forever.

Thoughts on 9/11
This is the 20th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks.  Next Saturday (Sept. 17th) is Constitution Day, an annual celebration of the US Constitution, a document that espouses the dignity of all--including those who are different.  I maintain that the two are very closely related.

Afghan Hordes Pose Real Threat
The enemy is within our gates. Indeed, he’s been there a long time. And America and the West cannot be said to be combatting or even grappling with this problem so much as simply and sadly rolling over and playing dead.

I was out on I-85 several times this week, and traffic flowed along unimpeded. But it got me thinking once again about the real problem, which too many people still fail to grasp.

Amusement Parks Have Their Purpose
I found myself at Tweetsie Railroad recently, watching my four-year-old granddaughter and her parents ride the Tilt-a-Whirl. It was the perfect cap to a day in the park, as a welcome respite from dreadful headlines about Afghanistan and Haiti and COVID.

Lake Lure A Model Conservative Community
It may be one of the best conservative communities ever I’ve seen. It’s Lake Lure, nestled in the southernmost foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and it’s one of our state’s hidden gems.

Here's the latest update from NC Senator Ted Alexander.
Friday, August 20, 2021

Vietnam Redux Or Apocalypse Postponed?
We all knew this would happen, didn’t we? Twenty years after three airplanes were hijacked by Mohammedan terrorists... And what to show for it all? More than two trillion dollars down the drain and thousands of military and civilian deaths––all for nothing.

Tillis Blames Biden for Afghan Situation
As Kabul fell to the Taliban and the enemy the US had fought for over two decades could at last claim victory, there was plenty of blame to go around.  As usual, most of Washington (and politicians elsewhere) pounced on the opportunity to bash their political rivals.

Wuhan Clan Continues Its Mad Rampage
A similar funhouse-mirror distortion exists today, with the kung ’flu, a mere insect upon the backdoor screen, being placed in front of a powerful magnifying glass and made to look like some giant monster from a bad 1950’s science-fiction flick.

Susan's Fund
On August 1st, Lincoln County lost one of its most dedicated animal welfare advocates when Susan Hillen Larsen succumbed to pancreatic cancer. It is not an exaggeration to say that Susan saved thousands of animals single-handedly.

Calculus And Covid
I studied Calculus in college. A mystery until I understood the concept behind Calculus. But after a few weeks I understood that it involves the study of rates of change.

COVID-19 Update
The COVID-19 'fourth wave' continues to roll over the entire USA. Skeptics and anti-vaxxers continue to deny the figures and argue with the advice of public health officials, and no doubt, they'll call this report 'fear-mongering.' All the same, we have a responsibility to report what based on good sources and solid evidence we believe to be the truth.

Arrivederci, Randy Andy!
According to The New York Times, the embattled governor is facing multiple counts of breaking state and federal laws. But what will sink Cuomo are the multiple charges of sexual harassment that span a number of years.

Of Dims, Whims, Skims, Flam-Flims & Bad Hymns
Liz Cheney needs to go. Quite where, I don’t know. Maybe she’ll slink off to an ignominious retirement when she loses her upcoming re-election bid, misrepresenting the great state of Wyoming in Congress.
