  • So many questions in need of answers

  • Connections of the heart

    Hurricane Florence remains a nightmare for millions of North Carolinians, thousands of us in Fayetteville and Cumberland County.

  • Stalked by a turtle named Flo

    Everybody talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it. Someone out on The Internets said that the prolonged waiting for Hurricane Florence to hit was like being stalked by a turtle. I would give them credit for the phrase, but I can’t remember where I saw it,
