    HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Donald Trump will hold a rally at the Millis Center on High Point University's campus Tuesday. It starts at noon and the doors open at 10 a.m. "This has sparked such a debate amongst the students that it's been really awesome to see," says Julia Fiedler, a sophomore at HPU. That debate is not over Trump's economic plan or his views on immigration. Instead, it's about whether he should even be allowed on campus. "I'm a little disappointed in High Point University for allowing him to be here because I think of this environment as one...

    This High Point Carbine was taken from a home defender in Arizona. Long guns offer a lot of advantages as defensive arms.  They are easier to hit with, offer increased practical ranges, and can have more power and deterrent value.  They have disadvantages;  it is easier to take a long gun from a person than it is to take a handgun.  Disarms of armed defenders are rare.  Cases where the disarmed defender is shot with their own gun, much rarer.  It happened in Arizona a week ago.  From APACHE JUNCTION — Pinal County authorities say an Apache Junction-area...

    Tired of seeing the New York Times getting all the headlines with their treason, the Washington Post has decided to join in the fun of betraying its country's most vital national secrets.This self-styled military expert, William Arkin, must surely be aware it is a gross and illegal violation of national security to release code names. (Ask Kissinger about "Umbra.") Of course that didn't stop him from writing a book that does just that a year ago, either.In fact, Mr. Arkin considers himself more of an activist than a journalist.

    Editorial: Teen's disappearance leaves grief, frustration November 01, 2002 The disappearance last week of Christopher Dixon is devastating to his family, heartbreaking for the community and frustrating for law-enforcement officials. No one knows whether the 13-year-old High Point boy ran away or was abducted. High Point police lean toward the first possibility, but an expert on such cases thinks abduction is more likely. Police say they have received calls reporting possible sightings of the boy, but nothing so far seems to have provided a definite lead. By all accounts, Christopher was not the type of youngster to run away from...
