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: 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."
