A plan to remove Nash County from the 7th Judicial District would cause major problems for the area.Republican-backed legislation to redraw the state's judicial districts would do just that, splitting Rocky Mount into separate judicial districts at the county line.The bill would place Nash County in a district with Franklin, Granville and Person counties, a sprawling, geographically peculiar area compared to the boundaries of the current 7th District that comprises Nash, Edgecombe and Wilson counties, an area that has many things in common.Such a split will complicate joint crime-fighting efforts by the Nash and Edgecombe county sheriff's offices and the...

And he's likely always going to have some supporters who cheer him on because he "tells it like it is."But even they should be ashamed of what multiple people allege Trump said Thursday during a meeting in the Oval Office about immigration. He asked why the U.S. would want more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in... [Read More]

We see it on TV and at the movies all the time.Police, firefighters, military personnel and others in the public safety realm running toward danger while human nature tells us to flee or stay sheltered, protecting ourselves from whatever danger lurks.We're dazzled and amazed by the bravery, the instincts, the skill it takes to be thrust into a tenuous situation and be able to save the day.But what about the heroes amongst us?Those TV shows or movies have to be based on some sort of...
