CORE Coalition MOA Signing
On 08/29/17, an event was held for the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between agencies in Edgecombe County. The purpose of the agreement is so all agencies involved can share information on naloxone uses. Naloxone is a quick acting drug that counters an opiate overdose. Many agencies who are first responders in Edgecombe County are using naloxone, but the numbers of usage are not reported to the state. As a result, state resources are not being dedicated to the opiate crisis in Edgecombe County.
With the MOA signed, the agencies who make up the C.O.R.E. (Coordinated Opiate Recovery Effort) Coalition can now share their data with each other and compile it in a unified database. Members of the C.O.R.E. Coalition include Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office, Edgecombe County Health Department, Vidant Edgecombe Hospital, Eastpointe, Edgecombe County Rescue Squad, Edgecombe County Emergency Management, Pinetops Police Department, and Tarboro Police Department.
Edgecombe County Manager Eric Evans has been supportive of C.O.R.E. all along and was in attendance for the signing. Special thanks goes out to the Edgecombe County Health Department for hosting the event.

The Watch Dog response: Good God Oh Mighty! But these trues! #thetruthwillsetyoufree! not #theirversionofhistory!
As monuments to the Confederacy are swept away from public spaces, white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the president of the United States have been fretting over the so-called attack on history, presumably their history. Their white history.
Attack, assault, erasure, destruction — well, truth and justice in the face of denial and dissembling can certainly feel like that. But there is no such thing as whites-only history, there never was, not even with regard to the Confederacy.
Like millions of African Americans, I am the descendant of a Confederate soldier. True, we are most likely descendants through coerced sex and rape, but we are descendants all the same. According to Ancestry.com, the DNA of the average African American is 29% European. These bronzed southern soldiers are literally our forefathers too.

The Watch Dog response: Have to follow what is going on because eventually the trues will come out. You see “they” been saying all the time that the antifa group is connected to the Democratic Party. But the sad part is some folk believe everything they hear instead of waiting to get information as it is presented. When you error that is okay but then acknowledge the trues when you learn them. It is okay to error but it ain’t okay to not make necessary corrections. Keep on believing everything “they” say those that have a different agenda other than the Democratic Platform. Now don’t get it twisted just because some folk are Democrats those who do not operate per the Democratic Platform they have to be dealt with also.
Then Donald Trump used the phrase “alt-left” to describe the anti-neo-Nazi protesters in Charlottesville last week, most people had no idea what he meant. I’m actually not sure he knew what he meant.
“What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the ‘alt-right’? Do they have any assemblage of guilt?” Trump said during a rambling press conference.
If the alt-left exists, it’s probably best represented by “antifa” (short for “anti-fascist”) — a loose network of left-wing activists who physically resist people they consider fascists. These are often the scruffy, bandana-clad people who show up at alt-right rallies or speaking events in order to shut them down before they happen, and they openly embrace violence as a justifiable means to that end.
Antifa is not a monolithic organization, nor does it have anything like a hierarchical leadership structure. It’s an . . . (Vox)
Do the confederate flag have anything to do with slavery?
Do confederate monuments have anything to do with slavery?
But this is not anything new, black folk have been saving white folk all of my 54 years and long before. Black folk raised their children, cooked for them, did their laundry and more so let’s not forget.
But yes the photo speaks volume but let’s not make it appear the love we have for all folk didn’t just begin now.
This Explains That
Wish the whole world could see this photo. These are the moments that reveal the true face of America.
This hero rescued children at their Cypress, Texas house hit by the historic storm. This is the best of America. We are one.

The Watch Dog response: You see they don’t want to talk about these trues. It ain’t no way they would go for that. Prime example of why these confederate monuments need to go and now! #thetruthwillsetyoufree not #theirversionsofhistory
