    13th Congressional District

    There were 17 candidates, now there is one.  It looks like political newcomer Ted Budd from Advance, who won the Republican primary in the 13th Congressional District, is the odds-on favorite to be the congressman from the district that includes most of Greensboro and almost all of High Point.

    The wheels are finally in motion for state legislators to consider legislation that covers the use of body-worn cameras, and the storage and public availability of the videos recorded.  That issue is expected to be a topic of discussion at the North Carolina General Assembly’s short legislative session that begins later this month.

    Shotgun weddings are never fun and they are especially not fun when the bride was all set to marry someone else.  But, like it or not, Guilford County mental health services is getting a shotgun wedding at the hands of the state, a move that county commissioners this week called “horrible” and “dictatorial.”

    The liberal mainstream media are relentlessly attacking NC House Bill 2, better known as the “Bathroom Bill,” passed by the state legislature last week, which states that the use of restrooms and locker rooms will be determined by biological sex.
