Letter to the Editor Contributor

To the editor:

This is a response to Michael Maharrey’s opinion article “In God you must trust — or we'll pass a law.”

Dear Editor,

Thank you for publishing my comments on the recent dog hunting situation where many of our friends and neighbors were charged with various violations after a multi-year long undercover sting operation by N.C. game wardens. I was pleasantly surprised at the conversations that ensued.

To the editor:

I just experienced one of the most emotional and heartwarming conversations ever. 

Ms. Antoinette Catalano is a disabled female that was traveling home to Tampa Florida, via Amtrak. Ms. Catalano and other passengers became engaged in some verbal disagreement and she was asked to leave the train for reasons unbeknownst to Hamlet Police officers. 

To the editor:

This is in response to Mr. Maples' defense and interpretation of the recent hunters being charged with various and numerous charges. 

To the editor:

I would first like to say I have the greatest respect for members of law enforcement and the military. I pray every day for their safety and success. I understand our system of government in the U.S. and N.C. and appreciate everyone involved. From the law makers to the individuals who devote their lives to enforcing those laws. Like many of you, there may be a few laws I disagree with, but like all of you, I am honor bound to follow them.

To the editor:

May 1 is gone, but certainly not forgotten. Now is the time for reaction, reflection, and even criticism — by all interested parties. 

To the editor:

There is an ongoing battle in the North Carolina legislature over whether to criminalize female genital mutilation (FGM). Why a battle? The mutilation of little girls’ genitals defies all standards of humanity and cries out as a hideous violation of human rights according to the United Nations and World Health Organization. The CDC estimates that 513,000 girls are at risk of FGM in the U.S.!

To the editor:

BSA Troop 64 in Rockingham is now accepting applications for youth between the ages of 11 and 17 who wish to join scouts.

LETTER: Small-town nostalgia

To the editor:

In 1966, my family moved to Hamlet, North Carolina. My father was the terminal superintendent there with the Seaboard Airline Railroad. We came from Savannah, Georgia, and had no idea what to expect.

To the editor:

This is a response to Michael Maharrey's opinion column “Is the Bible 'Pro-Government?'”

Let's begin by stating some obvious facts.
