AS ELECTION FILING CLOSES, ROBIN KNAPP FINALLY ANSWERS THE MAIL

Published

on

In a detailed post made concurrent with the closing of campaign filing, the highly regarded County Commissioner, Air Force Veteran and famed NCIS Agent has offered a detailed answer to those asking, and sometimes begging, for him to run for Sheriff. Knapp acknowledged the persuasiveness of the public, confirming in his post “…a lot of you were VERY persistent (smile)” and stating that his desire to run for Sheriff was “forefront in his thoughts”, but that he kept a close hold on his intentions.

Knapp cites two specific reasons for holding off on this election: potential health concerns in the family that he needs to tend to, and his desire to fulfill his promise to the public by completing his term as a commissioner.

Knapp hasn’t yet closed the door for 2022 and it appears that there’s still a large part of him that wants to put his vast experience in the seat.

The commissioner also had some sage advice for the campaigns already underway, “It is my earnest wish and hope that ALL campaigns will be conducted in a clean, mature and professional manner with the highest level of integrity” – remarks that seem pointed directly toward the Sheriff’s race which is already scarred with nasty mudslinging.

Without Knapp, and John Yopp having dropped out, the Sheriff’s race remains a three way battle to 8 May, with both Boyd Brown and Walter J Scott attempting to unseat incumbent Hans Miller.

VIDEO: Black Rose Tavern accused of kicking out Black man for charging phone

Published

on

A Jacksonville man says he was kicked out of a Midway Park bar Tuesday after he was trying to charge his phone. 

Jacksonville resident Kenneth Foster lost power at his home because of Hurricane Florence and needed to charge his phone, but when he went to Black Rose Tavern in Midway Park to charge it, he was kicked out.

“I left Hungry Howies to go to Black Rose Tavern to get a drink and I needed to charge my phone,” Foster said. “I saw children charging their phones.”

Foster said that when he asked the owner of Black Rose Tavern, John Bova, if he could charge his phone he was met with the reply that “this ain’t that type of bar”.

Bova, however, is claiming that Foster walked in the door, and, without asking, plugged in his phone.

“He walked in the door and plugged in his phone, and my wife who was the bartender walked over and asked him if she could help him and asked if he needed something to drink. He told her that he needed to charge his phone.”

Bova told News In Onslow that Foster began getting hostile with his wife, which is when he stepped in, told Foster that he could not charge his phone and informed him that he needed to leave.

Bova explained to Foster that they are a private club and that he cannot just walk into their place business and plug in his phone.

It was after being told to leave that Foster pulled out his phone and started recording.

Foster said Bova grabbed his phone and bruised his finger but he will not be pursuing criminal charges.

“I know the man racist,” Foster told News In Onslow.

The bar owner said that he is not racist and that his business is diverse.

When you talk about scamming, you think of the American Red Cross. A non-profit organization that accepts donations and never help people like their mission say they do. Some citizens of Onslow County, North Carolina can tell you about their experience with the non-profit organization and what happened Tuesday, September 18th.

Tuesday, officials in Onslow County told local residents that the American Red Cross would be feeding them in different locations throughout the county, but at two locations the non-profit never came.

Two of the locations, Richlands Library, and New River Shopping Center had people waiting nearly three hours for American Red Cross meals that never came and now the organization is saying it was a ‘big mistake’.

RHOA Kandi Burrus “The Lies!”

American Red Cross representative Charlotte Rodriguez told local reporters, “It was a big mistake that we should not have made.” 

It’s funny how the organization acknowledged their wrong but never apologized to the people they wronged.  Always want you to donate your money but have a hard time with integrity.
