The article in the News Argus dated Thursday, April 13, 2023, “Teacher supplement increase recommended during budget review” is insulting and demeaning to the teachers and staff of Wayne County, N.C.
Letter to Editor
Concerning the Goldsboro City Council, all of them need to resign. It would be the best thing for the people of Goldsboro. So far they have wasted millions of taxpayer and utility customers money. They promised more parking spaces for downtown businesses, but instead there are less. I would …
The loss of Randy Guthrie as assistant city manager is another catastrophic blow to the functionality and sustainability of Goldsboro’s government. City Manager Tim Salmon's bio on the city's government webpage, "City Manager – City of Goldsboro (goldsboronc.gov)," does not indicate any prio…
The medical staff of our hospital conducted its quarterly staff meeting Tuesday evening. Hospital-based physicians described the change from our first wave of COVID-19 that led to the hospitalization and death of many elderly people, to the recent surge that caused much younger patients to b…
Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.
Thank you, Tyler Stocks, Chandler Johnson and all who contributed to the in-depth reporting exposing the mismanagement and negligence of Goldsboro city leaders. I am especially grateful that Mrs. Shycole Simpson-Carter expressed the difficulty of working in a toxic environment while being em…

While I am at the Philadelphia Flower Show this week, I found a column from the past that fits with this floral adventure.
It’s disappointing that the mayor of Mount Olive chooses to support an industry that is a major air polluter in our area. Joe Scott spoke in favor of the expansion of Sampson Enviva (the pellet plant located outside Faison near I-40 exit 355) at a public hearing before the Division of Air Qu…
Council continues to waste taxpayers’ money on golf course
Thank you for finally printing some news about the Disclosure Statement complaint that was filed last year against Mayor Allen (”Supporters rally around Williams,” News-Argus, May 22). Even though the report overlooked some key details regarding the complaint, and handling by the city.
The Wayne County Board of Education, through its Chairman Mr. Don C. West, submits the following statement in response to the article printed by the Goldsboro News-Argus on April 16, 2019, titled, “Schools OK 'white privilege' assignment.”
I was born Feb. 22; however, this birthday was bittersweet. On Feb. 22, 1999, I married Sgt. Aaron A. Figueroa at 2:20 p.m. We had a private reception with 22 of our closest family and friends. My birthday would have been our 7,300th day (20 years) as Mr. and Mrs. Figueroa.
Well, folks, I was going to focus my writing on just art matters; however, after listening again to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “street sweeper speech,” I’m inclined to combine the two: art and social matters.
Congratulations to PepsiCo for its recent purchase of Israeli seltzer company SodaStream.
All we seem to hear about today is about building a wall on our southern border. The subject seems to be creating our own wall of division and creating chaos among our politicians and the general public.
I read with interest the comments Ms. Liz Meador made in her column of Jan. 13 concerning the building materials that make up a wall.
This is in response to the Jan. 1 article concerning the death of a young intern killed by a lion at a Caswell County conservator, and the Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) effort to misuse this tragic event to advance their deceptive animal rights agenda. But first, let me say, like many, I…
It is highly instructive, as well as frightening, to review the actions and speech of Democrat Party leadership over the last 10 years. The Democratic National Committee has moved so far leftward that it bears little resemblance to the party of John F. Kennedy.
I believe your readers will be interested in a recent email I received from Rabbi Dennis Prager:
Sorry, there are no recent results for popular commented articles.
