We made a mistake.

The staff of the Randolph Bulletin wishes to apologize to our readers for an article that was submitted to us by a reader and was included in our November issue. We appreciate our readers submitting articles and we include many of them in our paper. This time, we failed to proof the article and catch the offensive language that was used in the article called “Masks”. We sincerely apologize for this oversight. The language and content of the article were not to the standards we strive for and should not have been published. We will do better making sure any article submitted to us meets the non-political, Christian standards of our paper in the future.

  • Grace Saunders Kimrey: “Poet Laureate of Liberty Street”
    Grace Evelyn Saunders Kimrey (1910-2001) was the “Poet Laureate of Liberty Street.” I called her “Miss Grace” in deference, and to flatter her, I once asked if she thought her books would become a “best seller” — to which she replied “it would be nice, but poetry rarely sells!” Another reflection on Miss Grace’s wit […]
  • Pottery of North Carolina
    Like many towns on the Deep River, one cannot imagine how busy Franklinville was and how many potters it could support. One of the oldest was Enock Spinks Craven {1810-1893). Craven produced salt-glazed utilitarian stoneware and taught his nephew James Madison Hayes (1832-1922) to make pottery in his shop. Hayes madepottery in Franklinville before moving […]
