New Bern

Where's North Carolina?

In the South, or course. While patches of progressives (and progression) dot the landscape though not necessarily in this order; Asheville, Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro/Winston Salem, New Bern and possibly Wilmington, large areas of the state are in ….. literally, no man's land. The western part of the state gets a healthy dose of its politics from the pew of an evangelical church. The east, from decades of murmurs regarding both Raleigh and the federal government and their decisions, whether it be lack of funding or intrusion and displacement from once inhabited sections of the Outer Banks. The ties that bind however are having, understanding and an appreciation for education. But its more than just a noun. It's the ability to think things through; sometimes sleep on decisions, understand other people through sociology and amassing some degree of knowledge that presents itself, at a moment's notice, during the course of life.

GOP Mayor cracks down on...female swimmers?

And this guy wants to be our Governor:

New Bern Police Chief Frank Palombo says a criminal summons was issued on Tuesday for Mayor Lee Bettis. The 46-year-old faces misdemeanor charges of assault on a female and disorderly conduct.

The charges stem from a June 16 incident at a YMCA pool. WITN-TV reports that Bettis and a woman argued over whether she was bumping into the mayor's wife.
The woman says Bettis shook her, but he told the TV station he never touched her.

"I don't know what happened, officer. One minute she's standing there yapping at me, the next minute she's shaking like a leaf. Maybe it's epilepsy."
