TARBORO — There are some health rankings in which a county finds itself in the No. 1 position.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STD), for instance.
But that’s the case with Edgecombe County, which is No. 1 in the state in reported cases of HIV and Chlamydia, No. 2 in the state in reported cases of AIDS and gonorrhea and No. 17 in the state in reported cases of Syphilis. (More)
Response: What in the world more Princeville drama?
PRINCEVILLE — A heated Princeville Volunteer Fire Department business meeting Wednesday night resulted in the chief and the chairman of the board being demoted, another board member ousted, and a law enforcement officer standing between two firefighters to prevent a physical altercation.
In an 8-6 vote, the firemen ousted 10-year-veteran chief Billy Boddie. For more than two years, some of the firefighters have accused Boddie of mismanagement of funds and other infractions while others supported the chief. (More)
Response: If I could say two words about the Republicans: “RACIST IGNANTS!” Yep their bills are geared towards black folks but white folks either don’t know and/or don’t care because they these laws affect them also. Sad! How do their white friends sit up in church, on the golf fields and other meeting places with these ignants and not tell them they are not concentrating on real issues.
North Carolina’s proposed, “Healthy Marriage Act,” is amending their current divorce law by extending the hold from a one-year wait to a two-year wait, before a divorce can be final.
Yes. If you live in North Carolina, the Republican government wants all of you — your body, your religion, your voting rights, and your marital status.
They continue to pass horrendous anti-choice laws, one of them forcing a women wanting an abortion to view an ultrasound of the fetus and be lectured on it. They go one step further into, “Are You Kidding Me Land,’ by requesting the this be done four hours before the procedure.

Gov. Pat McCrory rolled out an ambitious but dubious plan to privatize North Carolina’s Medicaid system.
Under the plan outlined Wednesday by McCrory and N.C. Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos, the state would bid out the delivery of Medicaid services to a handful of managed-care providers.

Response: What I do not understand is the following: Community Care of North Carolina has become a national model for its delivery of Medicaid services. McCrory’s own Medicaid Director Carol Steckel testified in February to the N.C. General Assembly that her former state of Alabama is looking at North Carolina’s Medicaid system as a model for saving money and improving care, results largely due to Community Care of North Carolina. If privatization is adopted, Community Care of North Carolina would have to submit a bid to continue to administer Medicaid services along with other for-profit companies interested in contracting with the state.
Show you how ignant I am when it comes to movies I heard people say they had gone to see Temptation. I thought they were talking about the group Temptations. I am not a movie going person but I go from time to time with the family however many times the family go and the children take one of their friends.
Well my wife and I went to see Temptation by Tyler Perry last night and it was good. I have enjoyed everyone of his movies that I have seen.
If anyone that has gone to see Temptation and if they are cheating on their spouse then the movie ought to bring them in. Not! Hell when HIV came out years ago I thought it would slow folks down but it appears to me that folks just don’t care. !!Well I am scared! so never have and never will cheat on my wife.
But how many in a church are really together or are they just there because of tradition? Some folks even close family are sitting up in the church and don’t even speak to each other. But they act as if they are going somewhere. They are! Straight to hell! Now I will eat and drink to that! Well! Sunday April 7, 2013.
