  • Kudos to Cool Spring Downtown District

The new Astros baseball stadium and tens of millions of dollars in new construction and economic development on our doorstep bring us nearly endless opportunities.

  • Reporting the good news

    We’ve all heard the phrase, “Bad news travels fast.” That seems like the case these days. In fact, a reporter once told me the news doesn’t report on planes landing. I guess no one would read a story with the headline “Plane successfully lands at Charlotte Douglas.” That’s why I’m

  • Objectivity is very near death in America

    For some time, I have thought that objectivity is dying in – or disappearing from – America. The confirmation process for Brett Kavanaugh solidified my suspicion. Objectivity is very near death in America. From the Cambridge Dictionary, objectivity is “the state or quality of being objective and fair.” Then, for being objective:

  • Riding the storm out

     For many people in the Carolinas, this week has been hellish with the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. My heart goes out to so many that have lost so much.  A few days prior to getting my storm preparation on, I was doing a mental inventory of what I needed versus

  • Miss Potts, me and FBI investigations

     “You’d better be careful,” my wonderful seventh grade teacher, Miss Winifred Potts, preached to my class more than 65 years ago.  Miss Potts had a set of strategies to encourage us to behave, in and out of class. To discourage mischief- making while she was writing math problems on the

  • ‘OthelLIT’ in review: An evening of fanciful fun

    “Othello” is a Shakespearean tragedy, based on Giovanni Battista Giraldi’s “Un Capitano Moro,” that is estimated to have been written in the year 1603.

  • Atticus Finch and I. Beverly Lake

    What explains the staying power of Harper Lee’s book “To Kill a Mockingbird” and the film that starred Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch?  For some, it is its poignant story of Jean Louise, or “Scout.” Scout’s love and respect for her father, Atticus, gave her the courage to face the

  • Cross Creek Chordsmen bring ‘Fun, fun, fun’ to Fayetteville

    The term “barbershop quartet” often brings to mind a vision of men wearing boater hats and striped vests. But local crooners The Cross Creek Chordsmen are anything but dated. With a modern twist on a classic theme, this chorus brings the best of both worlds to every show. The group

  • Historic carriage rides offer a new perspective on downtown

    When strolling through downtown Fayetteville, it’s almost like taking a step back in time. The quaint local shops, the historic buildings, and, of course, the horse-drawn carriage rides.
