Firearms expert argues against more gun laws

Better to outlaw pants! Belt loop as effective as ‘slide fire’ device! By Eric Noevere Editor’s note: Thanks to local firearms expert Eric Noevere for tbis two-part series in which he theorizes that the Las Vegas killer differs from the New York City terrorist and from the Texas church shooter. “It hurts when we already have laws for background checks,” notes Noevere. “The Texas shooter should have been disqualified from firearm ownership based on his conviction for domestic violence while in the Air Force. Somehow the system failed to be updated to reflect this, and he was allo…

Trump statement on Texas shooting

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families of today’s murderous attack in Sutherland Springs, Texas. This horrible act of evil occurred as the victims and their families were in their place of sacred worship. We cannot put into words the pain and grief we all feel, and we cannot begin to imagine the suffering of those who lost the ones they loved. Our hearts are broken. But in dark times such as these, Americans do what we do best: we pull together. We join hands. We lock arms. And through the tears and the sadness, we stand strong. My Administration is providing its full sup…

LAS VEGAS – Unlike the Manhattan killings perpetrated Oct. 31 by an apparent Muslim terrorist, the Las Vegas shooting Oct. 1 differs dramatically.

DOT considers another ‘roundabout’

Unlike Arapahoe proposal, this nightmare spot needs big-time help! BEAUFORT — State transportation officials will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 8, for a proposed roundabout at the intersection of U.S. 70 (Live Oak Street) and N.C. 101 in the Town of Beaufort.

The meeting will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Beaufort Train Depot, located at 614 Broad St.…

Local dogs excel in Akita Nationals

WILMINGTON, OHIO – Oriental resident Angi Diamond recently embarked on a road trip to attend the 2017 Akita Nationals. She and her two ‘veteran’ Akitas had been preparing for this competition for months, including plenty of ‘road work’ in the wee hours at Windmill Point near Diamond’s home. “The competition is stiff, not just with Akitas from all over the United States but also from Columbia, Italy, Croatia, and Russia,” wrote Diamond in an email to this Newspaper. Tyra, named “Pet of the Month,” two years ago on a popular news website, won Best in Sweeps with Angi sh…
