Seniors: Know your rights in nursing homes
Wednesday, September 20, 2017
RALEIGH – "Please don't put me in a nursing home" is a sentiment I hear often from my senior clients. Many people seem to equate nursing homes with captivity and the end of all freedom.

Wednesday, September 20, 2017
A new study links gum disease with an increased risk of several types of cancer in postmenopausal women, even in women who never smoked.

DURHAM – When R. Kelly Bryant passed away in Dec. 2015, he was 98 years old.

McCain's INT leads Aggies to win
Monday, September 18, 2017
CHARLOTTE – Whether it is Boone in 2013 or Kent, Ohio, in 2016 or Charlotte last Saturday, North Carolina A&T has become adept at going on the road and winning games conventional wisdom says they cannot win.
