Power Outage Pauses Life Without White Noise
When the remnants of Hurricane Nicole swept through the area Friday, winds took out a tree on McKay Road. Those of us south of Newton heard the power go out at 11:47 a.m. I say “heard,” because electrical power outages have their own sound.

I'm not going to tell you how to vote.  I hope you will.  I also hope you'll learn a little about the candidates whose names you mark on your ballot before you make your choices.  Some of you--likely most--will mark different names than will I.  That's OK!  That's how democracy works--and I still believe in democracy.

Vote Republican.
“Something evil is afoot in this country.” That’s how my late father-in-law put it, two and a half years ago, not long before he died. On his deathbed, his withered body ravaged by heart and kidney failure, as well as other maladies, he distracted himself from his pain by watching a lot of television news.

North Carolina will likely see more cases of COVID-19 this Fall and Winter.  While they didn't have serious effects, our Lincoln County Manager, one of our County Commissioners, and the County Attorney all had infections recently.  While President Biden said recently the pandemic is over, there are still some 400 Americans dying every day from COVID.
