Worry wars with pride

As far as I'm concerned, every job in the Army is just as important as the next. If the cooks can make a hearty meal instead of flavorless boiled chicken, it makes a big difference in morale. If there are thorough soldiers working the radios and monitoring the cameras, it makes for a more efficient war. When mechanics are skilled with maintenance, everyone can do their job properly.

When we stroll the streets of our community, walk down the isles of our stores or stop to rest on a sidewalk bench, many of us watch and listen to others, taking note of what may be happening in their lives.

Georgia is home to education wasteland

Kathy Cox has resigned as state school superintendent to take a new job in Washington. I have no way of knowing who will win the post this fall, but I do know that what public education lacks more than dollars is a strong and effective advocate. No one - not Cox, not the State Board of Education, not the Georgia School Board Association, not the Georgia Association of Educators and the Professional Association of Georgia Educators, not the Georgia School Superintendents Association, not the charter school groups, not the city and county school boards, not the governor, not the General Assembly ...

LeConte could use extra helping hands

Editor, Hello, local friends and supporters. Many of you have expressed an interest in volunteering some of your time and talents at LeConte-Woodmanston.

I pray and you can't stop me

Editor, After reading a recent Sunday paper I was inspired not only by my faith, but also by my anger. In your state and national news section, an article about senior citizens who were told they can't pray before meals because they are federally funded just stuck in my craw.

Future wizards win kiss with HAMlet

Sweet berries good for snacks, memories

It is that magic time of year again when one can find little black jewels nestled among green leaves and thorny vines. I called these little jewels "bri-berries" when I was a child on the farm. Later, I learned their correct name is dewberries. But back then, all blackberries were brierberries to me.
