Values needed on the bench

Friday, October 12, 2018

This year as many voters go to the polls to elect officials, we search for criteria to validate our vote. What qualities should we value most and which candidates possess those qualities? Scripture provides timeless qualities in Deuteronomy 1:13, “Choose wise, understanding and knowledgeable people from each precinct and I will set them over you.”

The Bible mentions three important qualities to be considered. Wisdom refers to the ability to bring harmony even when great differences exist. Understanding refers to the ability to penetrate the realities of life and deal fairly with parties in dispute. And knowledge is the broad experience gained in life by making correct choices and following the right path.

These qualities are not exclusive biblical concepts; but they are qualities that work in a lawful society. These are qualities I have found on display in the life of attorney Daniel Hines Entzminger. He seeks to insure that everyone is treated fairly regardless of their level of representation.

As a practicing attorney, he seeks to bridge the gap in people’s lives between failure and success in the criminal justice system. He seeks truth, justice and fairness, balanced with compassion and accountability. As a husband, father, son and brother, he understands the value of second chances and he seeks to provide people with purpose and direction.

Daniel Entzminger has demonstrated an interest in finding ways to help people become the best version of themselves. I am confident your family and mine will be in good hands with Daniel Hines Entzminger serving on the bench as District Court Judge. Please consider giving him your support and vote in the upcoming election.

Dr. Gregory F. Murphy has done a great job during his first term as a representative for N.C. House District 9, and I am supporting his re-election. As a citizen of the City of Greenville and County of Pitt, I am a witness to how he communicates with people and his immediate responses to their…

This November's election will have significant consequences for both voters and nonvoters. While many voters have focused on national and state issues, local races are often overlooked, but they have serious consequences as well.

Pitt County voters will elect a District Court judge who will preside…

Eastern North Carolina has experienced three “100-Year” floods in less than 20 years. As I write this, another hurricane is on its way to the Florida Panhandle, which could bring eastern Carolina yet more rain and flooding. Thanks to human-caused climate change, these catastrophic…

The election on Nov. 6 may be the most important one of our times.

Our president has exploited the politics of division, not for the betterment of our country, but for his personal gain and power. He believes the Justice Department and our court system should always do his bidding, rather than…

The 2018 elections are fast approaching on Nov. 6.  Paula Dance, candidate for the Pitt County sheriff, certainly offers positive experiences and a dedication that is unwavering.

During her 28 year tenure in law enforcement, 26 years with Pitt County, Dance has worked to create a more unified…

New rules on the use of public spaces proposed by the Trump administration and Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke pose a grave danger to this country's most precious free speech rights and must be stopped. The public comment period for the regulations ends Oct. 15 and people around the country are…

As a 20-year citizen of the town of Grifton, I want to personally thank the staff of The Daily Reflector for being a voice for the people of Grifton as well as others in the area affected by the low-lying location in which Duke Energy chose for its electric substation.

I hope and pray with the…

Ah, the Republicans. In 1987, Ronald Reagan promptly withdrew Douglas Ginsburg’s Supreme Court nomination merely because he had smoked pot as a young man.

But no such problem for Brett Kavanaugh. Instead, our presidential “p.... grabber in chief” regaled his unhinged base by…

I just could not let the recent back-to-back letters using Christ and God references in support of Kavanaugh and the Republicans slide by. 

As for Kavanaugh, he flatly stated that the devil's triangle he referred to is a drinking game. It is not, it is a three-way sex act. He said that boofing…
