Be thankful we live in America
As we prepare to celebrate the upcoming holiday and the inauguration of our 45th president of the United States, let us all be especially thankful that we live in the greatest country in the world, the land of the free and the home of the brave!
One purpose of this letter is to thank the person who recently replaced the American flag and the “Make America Strong Again” signage in our front yard.
A second purpose is to say to the person or persons who illegally removed, destroyed and/or desecrated at least 10 similar signs and flags during the past several months of the presidential campaign that you are forgiven. We understand multiple police and crime-stopper reports were filed by citizens throughout the county for similar crimes.
As we inaugurate our next president, regardless of political affiliations, we ask that all Americans who love our country join together in support of our new administration. Just as President Trump and Vice President Pence take the oath of office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, let us all unite in our support of “law and order” and the principles upon which our country was founded. May God bless America!

While our president makes his farewell tour “showcasing” his legacy at taxpayer expense, I continue to believe one’s legacy should speak for itself

Variety at steak?
I love Bojangles, but we already have three in Salisbury. Why not a Steak and Shake?
