‘My wife and I enjoyed this play’

TARBORO — Dear Editor,

Roberta Cashwell and the Tar River Players have provided us another wonderful play to celebrate the Christmas season. In this, their 7th season, they gave us a Christmas Carol, done in a novel and unique manner.

The audience is a part of the play and characters are running up and down the aisles and everywhere. The audience was encouraged to sing with the actors (at least I think we were, I know I did).

Highlights include Jim Buttermilk as the skinflint Ebeneezer Scrooge who everyone hates, but who has an epiphany after being visited by various ghosts and he turns good.

One of those ghosts is Jacob Marley, deceased partner of Scrooge, played by Cousin Bryan Haislip. In a real role reversal, Bryan who played Clarence the Angel in last Christmas' production, returns from hell to help reform his stingy friend.

The best laugh of the night (Saturday) was completely unintentional. The win decanter and glasses had been accidentally broken in a previous scene. Jayson Ducket, playing the part of Mr. Fred ad libbed, “those who are able, partake of the wine”, or something to that effect.

My wife and I enjoyed this play as much as a play we saw at ECU a couple of weeks ago, at 1/3 the price.

This play is at ECC 3 more days, Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 8pm, and Sunday at 2pm

Don't miss it!

    On July 28, 911 was called because my husband had a bad headache. I was transferred to communications in Edgecombe County, where I spoke to a female operator. I informed her I needed Rescue because my husband had a bad headache and gave her our address and telephone number.

    To the Editor:
    Sheriff Knight’s “guys” may have worked hard on the case concerning Melvin Ray Fox, but did they really? Probably not for the sheriff, but for someone else behind the scenes. Not condoning Mr. Fox for his crime, because he should be punished, but not necessarily in the manner of leaving behind his wife as well as his 3-, 5- 7- and 13-year-old children.

    Yes, I voted “no” to extending the town manager’s contract as stated in the news article and “yes,” town manager Alan Thornton was correct when he said I did not get the answers I wanted to some of the questions. Some of the questions and answers are as follows:

    Concerning the Tarboro High 2013 Vikings football team: They have heart and desire. That was shown Friday night versus Washington. Just like last year’s state championship game, we got behind against a very good team. The Vikings didn’t quit even though they had several injuries throughout the game.  Right up to the last minute we had a chance  but, things didn’t go our way.

    To the Editor:
    It appears Mr. (Garland) Shepheard is shaking up things in our fair city according to a recent Daily Southerner article. Hurrah for him. This citizen, for one, believes the status quo needs a little shake up.
    I don’t know if Mr. Shepheard is disrespectful with his words and/or
    actions at council meetings or not. I don’t attend them any longer. It isn’t that I don’t care that some residents may suggest.

    To the Editor:
    So who are you Mr. Allen Dennie Jr.? I have never heard of you. I have tried to find your voter registration on the North Carolina State Board of Elections website and I can't find it.
    Somebody said that you have an impressive resume. I say and ?
    But what I find interesting is the following. Mr. Dennie the current Sheriff is the following: "The sheriff of any county should be a person who has a personal interest in the citizens that work live and visit their county,"

    To the Editor:
    I am glad that opinions are being expressed regarding my actions at the Town Council meetings,  both by Mr. Walker and Mr. Wooten.
    It is my intention to expose the concerns expressed to me by the taxpayers of Tarboro, and when I find something that causes Tarboro not to be the Town we can all be proud of, I will speak up. I was told by people in Ward 8 when I ran for this office not to be like the rest of the Council and I expressed that to the members. The problems that exist in Tarboro should not have to be aired in public or at the Town Council Meetings and there should not be any discord.
