We're speeding but apparently not fast enough for a fix
We're speeding but apparently not fast enough for a fix

Most of us apparently are driving too fast on U.S. 401 south of Louisburg all the way down to the new Rolesville Bypass.
But apparently we aren't going fast enough -- yet!
And many folks are dying on that miserable, out-dated stretch of two-lane highway.
But apparently, we haven't gotten the death toll up to where the state's Department of Transportation is willing to take action to remediate the problem.
Sound like a plot from some "B" movie that you realize from the opening credits is going to have a bad ending?

You (should) have a right to know what you're eating

First, a few words about our bias. We believe that Americans have a right to know what they are eating -- and how it was grown.
Okay, that said, if you happen to agree you may be surprised to find out that our own Congressman G.K. Butterfield helped spearhead a piece of legislation through the U.S. House of Representatives last week that prevents states from requiring that food containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) having to be labeled as such.

'Same legislation' mystery solved; it's all from ALEC

Last week, I criticized the Republicans in the General Assembly for missing the deadline on the state budget and for going on vacation instead of holding marathon sessions to atone for that sin.
Now nine key Republicans, including House Speaker Tim Moore, have decided that taking a junket to San Diego to attend the three-day American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) Annual Conference is more important than the citizens of North Carolina.

How gullible and stupid are we, really?

Dear editor:
Wow!! The Franklin Times is a wealth of information.
With the info regarding the "open public commissioners" Monday night meeting there are two things that come to mind. (1) democracy is in danger; and (2) stop payment on Pete Tomlinson's check immediately to represent the Franklin County taxpayers.

Preserve Market House!

Dear editor:
It's with hurt and sorrow to hear that the folks in Cumberland County now would like to do away with the Market House building and anything that it stands for.
Just seems to me like we don't have a past anymore and no future to go to. We are doing away with a building that has stood the test of time.
