A groundbreaking was held Saturday on a plot of land that will pave the way for the future of the Coopers Ruritan Club.

Rocky Mount DMV locations to remain the same

As the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles continues its headquarters move to Rocky Mount over the next few months, it wants to remind area residents that the new complex on North Church Street will not include any customer service locations.

Salvantion helps us to view sin differently

"But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered." (Romans 6:17)
I understand exactly what the Apostle Paul meant when he said, "You used to be slaves to sin." But I didn't understand it until I was born again. Salvation gave me a whole different perspective about the life I used to live.

Luke's Word for the Week

Did the devil cause COVID-19? This was the question from my son, Benjamin, one early morning as we were enjoying some deep theological talk. (It's a byproduct of being the son of a preacher and having to deal with your Dad who loves to talk theology.)
It's a good question, and one that we, followers of The Way, must wrestle with.
So let's dive in.

Intersections: God and Life

While preaching has fallen on hard times in some Christian circles, I'm going to assume for the sake of this article that you believe biblical preaching and teaching is a critical part of your discipleship and the church's growth in Christlikeness (see 2 Timothy 3:14-4:2). Yet, despite the importance of preaching, my guess is that many Christians give little thought to how they can get the most out of their church's weekly sermon.

Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook

UNBELIVEABLE.... I couldn't believe my eyes when we got a photo of a dog in need. We did the right thing; we forwarded the photo and address to Animal Control and the very next day the dog was seized. There are rules and regulation for the protection of animals. None of them was being done. The dog had no food, no water, no shade and no shelter. In fact, it was in a small dog crate just sitting in the back yard with some trash. How and who did such a horrible thing?

Step away from the world and enjoy!

I'm a firm believer that people are only entitled to complain about one type of weather.
In other words, a person shouldn't complain about the heat and the cold. That's just being whiney.
Being "full-figured" and "folliclely enhanced," it should come as no surprise I'm not a fan of hot weather.
The last few days have been wonderful, with temperatures touching the high 40s as a low and not rising above the mid-70s.

Community journalism at its best

Even if you don't typically follow local sports, I encourage you to take a look at the second section in today's Graphic.
Like everyone else, we've been tossed multiple curve balls during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Numerous events we traditionally cover didn't exist this year.
One of our favorite traditions in Nash County is high school football.
