NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes Statement on Biden’s Visit

NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes Statement on Biden’s Visit

RALEIGH, NC – “Vice-President Biden’s trip today is a great opportunity for him to discuss the titanic debt that the Obama Administration has placed on the shoulders of my children and grandchildren’s generation. With unemployment for recent college graduates having been as high as 19% in North Carolina under Obama’s watch, it’s clear that more of the same failed policies from Biden isn’t what is needed to create jobs. After three years in office, one thing is clear: while Obama and Biden’s promises may sound good on paper, the reality is that they have failed in the short-term, and Obama’s increased deficit-spending is dangerous to long-term prosperity.   While Vice-President Biden will be talking about Obama’s “next budget”, it is […]

Drive By Truckers

04/20/2012 Doors open at 6:00pm Show starts at 6:30pm Tickets: $25 adv. $30 day of Brought to you by 98.3 FM The Penguin Presents with special guests Megafaun Far more than on any of the Drive-By Truckers’ previous albums, Go-Go Boots rises like smoke from the old Muscle Shoals country-and-soul sound. Having recorded with Bettye LaVette and Booker T. Jones, and having spent a lifetime listening to classic soul albums by Bobby Womack, Tony Joe White, and especially Eddie Hinton, it was inevitable that the Truckers eventually produce this album. We knew they were pin-your-ears-back rock and roll. But here in Go-Go Boots, the Truckers are country, and here, too, the Truckers are soul and rhythm and blues. It looks […]

Austrian Native Wolte Leaving Lasting Impact on Pirate Golf

Austrian Native Wolte Leaving Lasting Impact on Pirate Golf

By Sam Hickman ECUPirates.com GREENVILLE, NC Feb. 23, 2012 – Golf is a difficult game. The best players in the world consistently shoot over par. One can play a hole beautifully and card a birdie before venturing through the woods on the next hole, painfully accepting a triple-bogey. For anyone familiar with the sport, it’s an inevitable, harsh reality. Those who excel through 18 holes of physical exhaustion and mental fatigue are the ones that remain poised. They can shake off back-to-back lackluster holes with an immaculate wedge shot that shifts the momentum, the round, and the day completely. This headstrong attitude is what defines sophomore golfer Fanny Wolte. A native of Graz, Austria, Wolte wasted little time making a splash […]
