  • The Bathroom Lie

    May 31, 2016 at 10:15 am

    I can’t believe, well actually I can believe, that our Governor said courts should interpret laws passed by a bunch of idiots. Is he looking for a cushy job after November? By the way, who is paying for all the travel expense while he is getting face time in Washington defending Hate Bill 2? Is […]

  • No “buts” about it

    May 27, 2016 at 10:45 am

    Ever encounter someone with a big “but”? My apologies WCHL, I guess I should’ve clarified the kind of “but” I’m referring.  You know the kind of responders who say: I would vote, “but”… Or how about Voting helps other people, “but” not me Or the one who says I’d vote for this candidate, “but”… As the saying […]

  • Don’t Fall For a Phone Scam: It’s Not the IRS

    May 26, 2016 at 10:15 am

    If you have received a phone call, purportedly from the IRS claiming it is suing you, you are not alone.  A rash of these scam phone calls is spreading across the Triangle and I have been one of their targets along with many of my friends and neighbors. The IRS is warning that it seeing […]

  • The Governor is Neglecting North Carolina

    May 25, 2016 at 10:35 am

    As a community we have so many important issues which need addressing. Here in Orange County we have close to 12,000 adults who cannot read or write, increasing poverty– with seniors making up a large percentage, a fractured mental health system and underpaid teachers. The State is ranked in the upper forties in Library provision […]

  • Spending on What?

    May 23, 2016 at 11:06 am

    I enjoy the graduation ceremony for the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. As the graduates march in to Carmichael to the cheers of parents and friends, accompanied by the stately tones of a brass band, it provides an opportunity to reflect not only on the accomplishments of each stellar class, of the talented […]

  • Why Would Black People Support Donald Trump?

    May 20, 2016 at 9:30 am

    As a Black woman at lunch recently with my five of my girlfriends I asked sarcastically, “Anybody here voting for Trump?” One responded with, “I’m voting for Trump.” For me to respond with ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND would not have been an opportunity for meaningful dialogue, so I asked… WHY do you support […]

    May 18, 2016 at 6:00 am

    If improving teacher pay in our district matters to you, this Thursday presents an important opportunity to speak up. Most parents and students in the district have had a taste of how low teacher pay and a high cost of living have affected our schools. Like the high school math class that went through five […]

  • Vaccinations are Important for our Children

    May 17, 2016 at 12:19 pm

    Vaccinations for children are often a source for questions, anxiety, and even controversy for a lot of parents that I see at our office. As a pediatrician, I’ve had many parents ask me a lot of questions.  Whether they are for or against vaccinations, they really just want to know about the safety of vaccinations, why they should […]
