Aug. 11 Bless Your Heart


Saturday, August 11, 2018

Had a conversation with the young preacher. He asked if I had a happy marriage. So I asked him how long he had been married. He said 11 years. So I told him he needed to stay married for another 30 years and then he would know the answer. Marriage is a road less traveled or maybe the road not taken. Either way it has potholes and fake road signs. And red light cameras.

BYH: To the person who slammed old people. You must have no thought of tomorrow, for one day you will be old. Old is a gift given by God. You sound young and foolish. You should respect all old people for they are ones filled with wisdom. You may learn something if you would listen. But you do not sound like someone smart enough to listen.

Having a statue on our courthouse lawn to treasonous fighters who rebelled against our country and killed millions is clearly a symbol of oppression and a monument to slavery. It is a constant reminder for everyone to know their place. If it was a just memorial to the dead, move it to a cemetery where the rest of the dead enjoy their memorials, BYH.

BYH Pitt County Board of Education. Parents are ultimately responsible for their child’s health. Teachers, counsellors, etc are temporary caregivers. Temporary caregivers should work based on instructions from the parents or guardians. How does the BOE get to ignore a “do not resuscitate” order? Reference Aug. 6 DR article. Any questions about that order should be addressed before an emergency and the order should be honored. This is overreach of government.

BYH to the writer about firearms, but they should have said anyone that uses a legal or illegal gun in commission of a crime, resists a lawful order or points guns at police is a threat. The status of the gun does not change the act.

I enjoyed the article on the Butterfield Transportation Center and the accompanying photos. Couldn't you at least have had a photo of those who think they should get the credit. I imagine the photos you printed brought gallon after gallon of fresh tears which added to the stormwater runoff. I coulda been a contenda.

The town of Fountain is literally falling apart. The streets, sidewalks, and public areas are a disgrace to anyone living here. Please, commissioners and mayor, do something!

BYH Mayor “Road Paving Machine” Connelly. I have lived in Greenville since 2001 and I have never witnessed more road paving in our city. I like it when I leave work at 5 p.m. from downtown and return the next morning on a newly paved road. I’m sorry for the road pavers that have to work all night, but it sure beats waiting in traffic during the day.

BYH, wherever the crowd goes, run in the other direction. The crowd is always wrong.
