Outgoing governor won’t be among NC’s greats
We have had distinguished North Carolina leaders: Frank Porter Graham, William Friday, James Holshouser , Jim Martin, Terry Sanford, Jim Hunt.
Pat McCrory and the Republican N.C. Legislature have acted like spoiled children — not willing to work for North Carolina citizens — only themselves. Compromise? Forget it. We need people in Raleigh who have integrity and care for all of our citizens.
I want my North Carolina back!

Light needed for left turn
I would like to know if anything can be done about the stoplight at the corner of Lee and East Innes streets. It is extremely hard for a driver turning left at that intersection to turn with the way the light works now. Traffic gets backed up both ways and it is a real nuisance for anyone in those lanes.
Why can’t the city or whoever is responsible have a light that is green for left turns instead of the blinking yellow light? That is definitely not fixing the problem.
