Nashville, N.C. — A Nashville community is praying for a miracle as one of the youngest among them battles stage four cancer.
More than 150 bikers throughout the southeast and dozens more from neighboring communities gathered at Bunn Chapel Baptist Church for prayer and songs after a charity ride Sunday in honor of 11-year-old Jayden West.
“Just today we raised right at $3,300,” said Christopher Hedgepeth of the Street Soldiers Motorcycle Club. “Just today and we have bikers that come from Fayetteville, Greenville, Virginia, and Raleigh.” (Source: Read more)
All of the Edgecombe County Mayoral Candidates for the upcoming elections in October and November have been invited to the Democratic Women of Edgecombe County meeting today at the Rocky Mount Braswell Library at 6:00 P.M.
Going to focus on things that matter most. Been focusing on certain things but folk ain’t appreciative so therefore it is over now.
Going to do away with some things that are not needed such as expenses that I can do without and/or can reduce the expense.
Going to resign from doing some things so I can free myself up and that means just relaxing on the computer. The main thing is I will be at home or at my daddy’s house. My main focus will be home, church, attending school sporting events and whatever matters most to me.
I have been promoting folk who are ungrateful so if I quit promoting them, they can make it so it does not matter if I do. What will matter is the time I invest in doing what I do.
I am going to stop trying to attend so many events capturing history and will pick and choose what I attend because obviously history does not mean anything to a lot of folk.
The Political Agitator’s response: I must agree with the response from my State NAACP President during the Rocky Mount NAACP Image Awards. Maybe the AG has justification for his response other than he is running for Governor and trying to appease some folk. But what Dr. Barber said makes sense to me. See it for yourself and please comment. Watch the response: Video/Photos: Rocky Mount NAACP 3rd Annual Image Awards Featured Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II NC State President/National Board Member

My son just told me that Quontellas Norwood had been shot last night. As always when I hear something I do some research. I visited Norwood’s page and I got a confirmation that it is true.
This is touching because I look forward to seeing my boys on the football field and basketball floor since I video the games.
I really don’t know Norwood’s condition however it was posted by someone on his page he was ok. I will take the trip to the hospital along with my son and a couple of more students.
Wishing Norwood a speedy recovery.
