Publisher's perspective: Class is in session for daddy-to-be

May 3, 2012

After almost eight months of my wife’s pregnancy, we’ve been through a few educational adventures in furniture assembly, nursery preparation and wardrobe navigation. I’ve even read up a little on being a good daddy-to-be courtesy “The Caveman’s Pregnancy Companion: A survival guide for expectant fathers.”

Dear People of God:

We write to you as Bishops Diocesan of the three Dioceses of The Episcopal Church in North Carolina to share our opposition to the state’s proposed constitutional amendment, Senate Bill 514, also known as Amendment One.

Darts this week to the Catawba County Board of Commissioners for departing from leaders’ elected duty of governing our county and instead taking a partisan action that is nothing more than an attempt to spotlight a hot-button issue on this year’s statewide ballots.

Publisher's perspective: Diversity makes the county great

April 3, 2012

The U.S. Postal Service letter carriers in Catawba County had an extra burden this weekend, but I know their efforts in delivering an edition of The Observer News Enterprise jam-packed with news and information will benefit our readers greatly.

From the editor's desk: Squirreled away under a vehicle

April 3, 2012

While the rest of Newton is preoccupied with the city’s alleged feral cat problem, I’ve witnessed a far more hair-raising animal issue lately.

Victimized squirrels.

That’s right, squirrels abused by vehicles large and small and, in at least one case, an unfriendly feline along North Main Avenue.
