High schoolers take challenge

In a major crisis, our first impulse is to address people's immediate needs. With the Haiti and Chile earthquakes, that meant providing food and shelter to the victims. In the case of the recent economic recession, the government stepped in by extending unemployment insurance, providing COBRA subsidies and promoting mortgage refinancing guidelines, among many other programs.

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. Americans as a whole are a charitable and thoughtful people, and always seem generous with our time and outpourings of goodwill towards those who serve.

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. Some might say that the "People's Work" is never finished and as a member of the "People's House," all of the ...

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. The vote followed a Jan. 7 vote taken after an executive session when the media and most attendees had left the meeting.

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.
