College campuses will more closely resemble the rest of American society under the U.S. Department of Education’s proposed rules for handling sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and her administration unveiled a series of draft regulations interpreting Title IX on Friday morning. While they triggered opposition from some victims’ rights groups, the rules seek only to restore fundamental fairness and replace illegitimate campus kangaroo courts with a deliberative quasi-judicial process.

Every time an election rolls around, we’re encouraged to get out and vote.

This year, as just about every election year in the past 20 years, we were told this was “the most important election” of our time.

Let’s take a look at some of the candidates who won this all-important election.

To the editor:

What a beautiful sunny day we had from morning to night — 73 degrees for the daytime and a cool 65 for when the sun went down. It had been a few years that rain was not in the forecast. Our crowd was fantastic. Dealing with the hurricanes the weeks before, l think we all were ready to enjoy an outing of some kind.

100th Anniversary of Armistice Day

Written by

Sunday, 11 November 2018, marked the 100th anniversary of the signing of the cease-fire agreement (i.e., armistice) that effectively ended World War I.

The first anniversary of this unofficial end of WWI (the Treaty of Versailles, which officially ended the war, was not actually signed until the following June) was recognized by President Woodrow Wilson in a message to the nation:

RALEIGH - The NC House is set to come back in session on November 27.  In the meantime, my office remains open to help you with constituent concerns or questions. 

Please reach out to me or my legislative assistant, Judy Veorse, at 919-733-5823. 

RICHMOND COUNTY - The Richmond Observer received the following "Letter to the Editor" in conjunction with the upcoming election and the endorsement of a particular candidate:

NORTH CAROLINA -- This week, Family Research Council Action's Values Bus Tour will be joined by congressional candidate Mark Harris as it hosts rallies across the state.

Harris will join the Values Bus team on Thursday and Friday, leading up to a rally at the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte with President Donald Trump.

Raleigh, N.C. – The Republican-led General Assembly has consistently enacted balanced budgets since taking control eight years ago, keeping North Carolina on a responsible and sustainable trajectory.

At the same time, the legislature invested more in education than any other year in state history for six consecutive years, rebuilt the rainy day fund to exceed the statutory recommendation for the first time ever, and increased teacher and first responder salaries – all while cutting income tax rates.
