By Dexter Liu NOTE: My wife and I plus another friend from Oriental went to the D.C. rally on January 6th.

Under the United States Constitution, it is my sacred right — as it is for any Democrat — to support his or her candidate of choice. Indeed, historically w…

Veteran Tax Return Preparer Always Puts Clients First

WASHINGTON, N.C. – Sharper than a tack, Richard Pitts, 74, has been preparing tax returns for more than five decades.

Live, on-the-scene reports from Washington, D.C

Submitted by Pamlico County residents Kara Ireland and Debbie Caraballo Final Update. We departed DC around noon, everything was peaceful when we left but from what we understand things are getting explosive and a small group has stormed the Capital. This does not represent the whole and what this small group participated in is not acceptable. It is very sad that over the last year this country has endured violence, hate and destruction. This is not America! Only we the people can stop this hate. The media is quick to focus on the negative but they neglected to show all the peaceful gatherings th…

Resort island developer asked to donate ferry

BALD HEAD ISLAND –  Recently, State Treasurer Dale Folwell  asked owners of the ferry system between Southport and Bald Head Island to give the entire system to the Village of Bald Head Island or to the newly formed Bald Head Island Transportation Authority.

SHAME on AMERICA Election fraud occurred. Supreme Court agrees to review.

Try finding this story on most of national news media!? By Jeff Aydelette | News Analysis WASHINGTON, DC – I am old enough to have watched the Twilight Zone when it was a first-run TV show. Every episode was great. I remember one in particular. The famous actor Burgess Meredith portrayed a book-loving introvert. The plot called for him to have somehow survived a nuclear war, yet he had plenty of food, water, and provisions.
