North Carolina hasn't had a full budget since the 2018-19 fiscal year because of political standoffs between Democratic Governor Roy Cooper and the legislature. The budget for the current fiscal year is more than four months overdue. Local governments and school systems have had to operate without a clear and definite figure on how much money they’ll get from the state. That may at last be about to change.

"Manners Maketh Man"
Back then people knew not only to say “thank you,” but they also knew that the proper response was “you’re welcome.” These days, when you sit down in a restaurant, if you thank your waitress, seemingly eight or nine times out of 10, the kid will say, “No problem,” or “Not a problem.”

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.

One More Remembrance
