LETTER: November is just around the corner

To The Editor:

[N.C. Speaker of the House] Tom Tillis found a way to get the teachers a raise. He needs the credit.


Jun. 25, 2014 @ 04:58 AM

LETTER: Investigation warranted into the 'rush to frack'

To the Editor:

Susan Alexander's letter [June 19 Herald] was excellent. You can't “chuck a rock” at the Mining and Energy Commission


Jun. 21, 2014 @ 04:59 AM

LETTER: Thanks to Rabin, Stone


Jun. 21, 2014 @ 04:58 AM

Jun. 20, 2014 @ 04:59 AM

LETTER: Pursuit of 'buried treasure' on track to ruin Sanford

To the Editor:

Sanford is a wonderful place to work, play and raise a family. It’s too bad that not everyone agrees. Some have sold out to the fracking industry to the detriment of us all.

LETTER: Can't thank local pharmacy enough

To the Editor:

Medicine Park Pharmacy has got to be the top pharmacy [in our area], and it's privately owned. It beat out [a very big-name store] and every other chain out there.
 


Jun. 20, 2014 @ 04:56 AM

LETTER: It's time to retire some N.C. officials

To the Editor:

The voters will not be able to stop all the damages heaped upon the state in the upcoming election in November, but they should be able to chip away at [the Republicans'] majority status.

LETTER: In Pittsboro, positive approach yields results

To the Editor:

Last week, I noticed that once again the Pittsboro ABC Store, under the leadership of its board and chair, Jim Nass, presented another ABC distribution to the Town of Pittsboro.


Jun. 19, 2014 @ 04:59 AM

LETTER: Speech was a highlight of impressive commencement

To the Editor:

I attended the Lee Senior Commencement Service ... and was very pleased with the address by [Athletic Director and basketball coach] Reginald Peace.


Jun. 19, 2014 @ 04:58 AM

LETTER: The high cost of greed

To the Editor:

Much has been written about the fact that Mike Stone and his cronies broke promises they made in 2014 that they would not pass legislation about fracking until all the rules were in place.


Jun. 18, 2014 @ 05:00 AM

LETTER: Voters should remember reps stance on fracking

To the Editor:

The other day, I bought a Coca-Cola. As I sipped from the bottle, I read the list of ingredients printed on the label. All of them were listed, but if I gathered each one up, I don't think I'd be able to make a batch of my own Coca-Cola. That's because while the ingredients are listed, the formula that tells you how to make Coca-Cola is not.

LETTER: 'America is you and me'



Jun. 13, 2014 @ 04:58 AM

LETTER: What a disappointment


Jun. 13, 2014 @ 04:57 AM

LETTER: Make your voice heard


Jun. 11, 2014 @ 04:59 AM

LETTER: Leaders have surrendered our state with energy bill

To the Editor:

On Wednesday morning, Gov. Pat McCrory held a ceremony on the campus of North Carolina State University to sign Senate Bill 786, the Energy Modernization Act. Instead of a ceremony, it should have been referred to as the unconditional surrender of our state's green heritage to the petrochemical industry. The governor should have been ashamed to sign a bill that is the inverse of our state's motto "Esse Quam Videri."
 


Jun. 11, 2014 @ 04:58 AM

LETTER: Law doesn't bode well for economic development

To the Editor:

The fracking legislation signed by Gov. McCrory is bad for N.C., bad for regional economic development in Chatham and adjacent counties, and little more than a Trojan horse for offshore drilling.
 


Jun. 11, 2014 @ 04:57 AM

LETTER: Calm down

To the Editor:

The editorial page in Friday's Sanford Herald was full of it. Lee County Commissioner Kirk Smith damned Jay Calendine by silly supposition in the letters column.


Jun. 06, 2014 @ 04:57 AM

LETTER: Innocent until proven guilty

To the Editor:

Let me start by stating that the following comments are mine and do not represent those of the Lee County Board of Commissioners.


Jun. 05, 2014 @ 04:59 AM

LETTER: Editorial board is wrong on lawsuit

To the Editor:

This is in response to The Herald’s May 30 editorial about the dropping the lawsuit against Lee County taxpayers.


Jun. 05, 2014 @ 04:58 AM

LETTER: Fracking: Health, safety too important to rush

To the Editor:

Ray Covington neglected to mention in the two-part Take 5 segment that he is the owner of North Carolina Oil and Gas, a company that, when fracking comes to North Carolina, will profit.


Jun. 04, 2014 @ 03:05 PM

LETTER: Citizens deserve an apology

To the Editor:

What a surprise — the lawsuit against Lee County’s Republican commissioners has been dropped. 


Jun. 04, 2014 @ 04:59 AM

LETTER: Lee commissioner’s claim is unfounded

To the Editor:

As the adage goes, it is impossible to please everyone at once.


May. 30, 2014 @ 04:59 AM

LETTER: Wake up, America

To the Editor:

The Veterans Administration (VA) scandal on veteran health care benefits is nothing more than “slow-walking” patient support to reduce costs.


May. 30, 2014 @ 04:58 AM

LETTER: Sen. Tillis — an alarming prospect

To the Editor:

Thom Tillis in the United States Senate? — an alarming prospect for a beleaguered Democracy
