Remember the sacrifices they make

Since the tragedy of 9/11, our nation and its communities have experienced a heightened awareness of the sacrifice and service of military members and emergency response personnel.

General Assembly nearing end of session

The 2010 legislative session of the Georgia General Assembly is almost completed, with only seven session days left. Working into the late hours of the night on Crossover Day, last Friday, the House passed many important pieces of legislation. Given that Crossover Day is the last day that a bill must pass one chamber in order to be considered by the other, the members of the House continued to debate legislation as long as time would allow.

Council did not listen to taxpayers

The Hinesville City Council's recent decision to increase the salaries of the mayor and council members was a surprise to most residents of our city.

Certain police units take actions too far

Editor, On Saturday, April 3, my son was stopped and cited by the Hinesville Police Department for failure to obey a stop sign (layman's terms: a rolling stop). Simple enough right? Wrong! An unnecessarily embarrassing, emotional and degrading search ensued that involved four squad cars - including members of the Crime Suppression Unit - the K-9 unit and a very stoic supervisor with a camcorder. After a complete search of his vehicle, my son was given a ticket for a rolling stop and a warning for an open container (they found and confiscated a dusty, empty miniature brandy bottle in the ...

Liberals should quit resorting to violence

Editor, Violent protests are the exclusive domain of liberals. Liberal mobs riot in the streets, attacking police, turning over cars and setting them on fire. They take these opportunities to loot businesses in the middle of their violent activities. Many children of liberal parents are raised to be hoodlums. They are taught to be violent to get their way.
