Jeff it never seems to amaze me how you can write up these stories when it includes certain folks in the community such as Knight and Blackwell. I have been active in the politics of Edgecombe, Nash and Wilson Counties since the 90’s so I am glad I don’t have to rely on this paper. You see my friend you have an upper edge on the black community because you can always say what the white community is saying and feeling and that in itself make it look like the racist white folks are not alive and well. Hell Bobby Gorham bless his soul spent much of his wealthy finances running around Rocky Mount and even got into black churches trying to silence the black city councilpersons by saying he didn’t want their input on the "Coming Together in Rocky Mount." I have had much respect for you although I very rarely agree with you, but I am about to change the way I think of you. I guess the news in the area will always be slanted since we do not have a real black reporter nor a black newspaper. This is why I video all the meetings and record on my blog what really goes on because the papers print it in a fashion many times that educated political black folks should not have a say in who represents us. How ignant. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher
Note: This is my response to Jeff. I will see if he post it to his blog. He never did print my letter to the editor concerning the appointment however the Wilson Times did. Oh well.
Justice in the Twin Counties took a strange, lumbering step forward last week with the appointment of Robert Evans as new district attorney.
Evans has been a fine District Court judge for the past 10 years and will no doubt serve the Seventh Prosecutorial District equally well in his new position. His replacement has not been named, but insiders for some time have mentioned Rocky Mount City Councilman Lamont Wiggins as a strong candidate for a judgeship. Wiggins, too, would make an excellent juror. (Rocky Mount Telegram)
