I will say that the stores I have been in this week all have posted signs that a mask is required to enter. These are larger places - Food Lion, Harris Teeter and Walmart, all in Aberdeen. In the last two days I have noticed that the majority of customers in these three stores have been w…

Nice work, thank you for volunteering to help people who otherwise would not have any power. I am sure it made a huge difference in their lives and gave you a chance to see how really fortunate we are here in the USA, with something many of us have come to take for granted. Those who brin…

I'm not positive that the staff reporters write the headlines for their articles. Maybe so. My journalism class goes back to the dead ages (some 64 years ago) when I was editor of the school newspaper. Dear Miss Robinson insisted that headlines should be written by someone other than the …

I was in Food Lion today (US 1 store) and I don't think I saw any shoppers without a mask on, including one adorable little girl. People had trouble following the arrows for one way aisles, but that is usual. I think I am the only one that does! I'll say again, I wish Kent would move to S…

There are a number of vendors at Twigg & Company (Aberdeen on US 1) who make masks. Some relatively simple, others with added filters. I have a large collection, but elastic around my ears doesn't work when added to glasses and hearing aids, so I use ties for mine. Shoe laces work great.

I think you have to rely on common sense (fat chance) just as the last church/state thing was settled by the courts and most churches did not open up, but this isn't a matter of that as addressed in the constitution. It's really left up to the individual businesses to enforce, which I dou…

So happy for Sheila and bless all the people on the front lines at Moore Regional Hospital who cared for her and for her family. Five star story.

What a nice thing to do for the residents and their families and friends. Rather than "shorten the lives of those whose days were already numbered," I think it brings joy to them and may even lengthen their days by having something to look forward to. It's a win all around, except for peo…

I am grateful for the organizers of any protests or gatherings in Moore County to be thoughtful about the process so as not to endanger anyone or anything. It doesn't make the news except for The Pilot, the rest of the media aren't interested, but I am sure most residents of this county a…

I think they are right - this horrid virus can weasel its way in despite best efforts to avoid it. I personally hate to leave home my one day a week for a few hours. He's not in the high risk category so I hope he and his wife do fine.
