Cougars’ comeback leads to record night

RANDLEMAN — It took a record-breaking performance for Southwestern Randolph to win its latest football game. And that could mean more records for the Cougars this season. Southwestern Randolph overcame host Randleman for a 28-23 victory Friday night. Junior receiver Adam Cole scored two touchdowns to set the single-season school record for victories. The Cougars (7-1, 2-1 Piedmont Athletic Conference) have matched the school record for wins. They’ll try to break that in Friday night’s showdown at Providence Grove. It took plenty to defeat Randleman, which built a 10-0 lead. The Tigers (3-5, 1-2) have been on a conference championship…

HUDSON: Biden, media have moved past Afghan chaos, but I won’t

HUDSON: Biden, media have moved past Afghan chaos, but I won’t

It’s been over one month since President Joe Biden fully withdrew our troops from Afghanistan on Aug. 31, 2021. More than five weeks later, my office is still working with American citizens, residents and allies who have been left behind in the country now fully controlled by the Taliban. President Biden’s withdrawal was completely botched, culminating in the tragic loss of 13 of our brave servicemembers, including SSG Ryan Knauss from Fort Bragg. Just last week, we learned the suicide bomber behind that deadly attack was a former prisoner released after the president made the premature decision to abandon Bagram…

HUDSON: Democrats’ ludicrous claim that most expensive bill in history will cost $0

HUDSON: Democrats’ ludicrous claim that most expensive bill in history will cost $0

Freedom is under attack. Liberal politicians in Washington think they know what’s best for you when it comes to your health care, what your children are learning in school, what kind of car you should drive, and how you spend the money in your bank account. Their reckless spending has already led to skyrocketing inflation. Unfortunately, Washington Democrats are doing everything they can to advance trillions more in government spending and new taxes that will transform our society and only make inflation worse. Last week, Democrats worked to advance their $3,5000,000,000,000 infrastructure bill. Only 10% of this bill goes to…

GINGRICH: Biden’s border disaster

GINGRICH: Biden’s border disaster

As President Joe Biden vacationed at Rehoboth Beach, the disaster at the U.S. southern border continued to metastasize. Anyone who has seen pictures of thousands of people crossing the Rio Grande en masse knows the administration has achieved complete failure. Anyone who has seen the overhead drone footage of more than 12,000 people gathered under one bridge in South Texas knows that massive, historic incompetence is being allowed to flourish. At the same time, it’s clear that — despite all the Big Government Socialists in Biden’s party who complain about America — we remain the one country people desperately try…

HUDSON: Reagan’s warnings on inflation still ring true

HUDSON: Reagan’s warnings on inflation still ring true

“A President’s greatest responsibility is to protect all our people from enemies, foreign and domestic. Here at home the worst enemy we face is economic — the creeping erosion of the American way of life and the American dream that has resulted in today’s tragedy of economic stagnation and unemployment.” President Ronald Reagan said these words in 1982. However, they ring as true today as ever before. As the crisis on our southern border worsens and inflation reaches new highs, last week Washington liberals ignored these problems and continued their reckless spending spree. The House passed legislation which would once…

Labonte contends in Caraway feature

SOPHIA – Bobby Labonte, a NASCAR Hall of Famer, had to settle for second place at Caraway Speedway. That’s because Jonathan Brown won for the first time in the SMART Modified Tour, edging Labonte in Saturday night’s 99-lap race. Brown became the seventh different driver to win on the SMART Modified Tour this year. Labonte previously won this year at Dillon Motor Speedway and Carteret County. “We were off a little bit in qualifying, I didn’t feel like I got a good lap, but we were able to start third on the redraw and get some points for the 30-lap…

It’s shaping up as a potential special season for the Patriots. “They’re aware of it,” Brown said of the place in history early in the season. “I want them to understand that it’s something special.” This week, the Patriots try…

Rep. Ted Budd meets with restaurant owners in Asheboro and Burlington

ASHEBORO — Two restaurants in Asheboro and Burlington received a visit from Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC13) today as "Help Wanted" signs have become an increasingly more prevalent sight across the state. Budd talked with owners and workers at the Golden Corral in Asheboro and the Biscuitville in Burlington about the ongoing labor shortage and the importance of ending the current federal stay at home unemployment bonus. “The federal government’s enhanced unemployment payment of $300 extra dollars each week has incentivized workers to stay at home and not get back into the workforce. Essentially, these additional payments constitute a stay at…
