A shout out to Dr. John Morrow who is retiring as Pitt County’s Health Director. I loved the tribute Brian Floyd, President of Vidant Medical Center wrote about our “community’s doctor” last month (December 23) on the Reflector Opinion page. If you were away for the holidays…

It was in 1983 that parents told leaders of the Diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana, west of New Orleans, that Father Gilbert Gauthe had molested their sons.
