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.

A big shout-out to Alison Lord Stuart for her piece on voter IDs in Tuesday’s paper.

You are right on the “mark” regarding voter IDs. My husband and I have lived in many states, all of which required a voter ID at election time — until we came to North Carolina.

At each…

Last night (Monday, Feb. 11) I attended ECU baseball banquet in the new student union. There were almost 600 people there and they were treated to a great program.

Some facts that were revealed were that this team has a 3.44 grade point average which is the highest in the American Athletic…

Donald Trump once again exhibited his extreme ignorance, irrationality and intransigence in contradicting the analysis of his three top intelligence chiefs before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Jan. 29. It's hard to imagine how pompous a person must be to think he knows more than his FBI…

Mr. Kammerer's fine article on the Jones-Lee House (in The Daily Reflector on Sunday) highlights the urgent need to save one of the few remaining architectural structures of historic and aesthetic value left in our poor city.

Years and years of willful destruction and bureaucratic neglect pushed by…

It's official. We just had the longest government shutdown in history over nothing.

Democrats have agreed to fund $1.375 billion for 55 miles of physical barrier along the border, which is only a little more than what Trump would have gotten under a continuing resolution that funded the government…

Title IX has been a positive thing except where men's programs have been canceled to create slots for women. You can call it Title IX "balance," but ECU has 11 women's sports and only nine for men. To create this disparity ECU added women's lacrosse. Last time I checked, the state of North Carolina…

From Lake Norman to the Outer Banks, boating has long been a cherished pastime for many families across North Carolina.

Yet while many are familiar with the personal benefits you experience during a day on the water, the important economic contributions of boating are lesser-known.

Recently Courtney Patterson, a state NAACP leader, told a Greenville audience that the gains made by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 are in jeopardy. He encouraged Americans to be vigilant in protecting these rights and to exercise the privilege of voting.

I am tired of Democratic presidential hopefuls and their clean energy nonsense. Windmills and solar panels are generally a waste of time and money. Windmills don’t turn when there is no wind and solar panels don’t work when there is no sun. In each case the energy generated is DC, for…

If the legislature adopts the Carolina Cares plan advocated by Rep. Greg Murphy, hundreds of thousands of people will still be showing up at our hospitals without coverage, giving the hospitals the excuse to pad what they charge the rest of us in order to pay for treatment for the uncovered.…
