Sound off


Stop putting people down

Is it true that a lot of times people put the blame on someone else when they themselves can’t even solve their own problems? Think about it and then let your conscience be your guide. Then write something to your senator, congressman, president, mayor or governor of your state that would help America. Stop putting down people and do something that would cheer up all people in America, even yourself if you’re down in the dumps. No one is perfect. In God you should trust. Leave the president alone to do his job.

Just don’t get it

Response to Sound Off “Show some respect” [July 26]. Many respect the office of the president. It’s currently what’s in the office that shows disrespect. What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come sexual immorality, bigotry, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. He has used foul language in describing certain emerging nations, wakes in the morning engorged with tweet denunciations of almost anyone. Some people just don’t get it.

Defining a racist

Want to respond to sound off article “Why a racist?” [July 26]. The caller said, “Why is it you can’t say anything about anyone or you’re a racist?” Simple, if you write, act, or say words that match the definition of a racist, then you are a racist.

Look in the mirror

White supremacy, you can be in denial, or say, “I am the least racist person in the world.” It is a hateful stench you can’t escape. Facts: nine black worshipers in Charleston, South Carolina, 11 in a synagogue in Pittsburgh and 21 in a heavily Latino group of Walmart patrons in El Paso, killed all with manifesto in the ideology of white supremacy, (nationalism). Tucker Carlson says, “It’s not a problem but a hoax.” To him and others, look in the mirror.

Clean up pond

This is the for the community around Rhodes Pond. I hear people talking about how bad things look. I see a lot of machinery around the pond, but they don’t do anything to clean it up. If they can’t clean up the pond now, they could clean some of the debris. You would think they would want people coming from Fayetteville to see this beautiful country area for what it really is.

Loud mufflers are back

I was calling to say I appreciate the quietness we had around Erwin, but the loud muffler drivers have come back. Now we’ll wait to see if anything will be done about it.

Why beer?

For Denim Days, why would the Erwin Chamber want to have them sell beer and allow beer tastings at such a family-friendly event?

Paid for by Democrats

There is an ad on TV. It’s paid for by ARC magazine. ARC has become a liberal company. It says, “Paid for by ARC,” but it’s really paid for by the Democratic Party.

Ignores middle name

I want to know why people have three names. Your first, middle and last. But when you get ready to retire, they only call you by your first and last name. They are confused by your middle name. Or if you always go by your middle name, but you retire and they call you by your first and not middle, people won’t even know who you are.
