Pre-teen worries about health reform

Editor, My name is Chantai Thomas. I am 12 years old and live in Ludowici. I have an 8-year-old sister named Chyrish. My mother is physically disabled because of a car accident and my sister and I live with our disabled grandparents. My grandmother, Cynthia, is 58 and has major back troubles. She is almost unable to walk. Her legs and back cause her great pain and she is going to have surgery to fix her problems. I fear that under the new health-care plan, her insurance will not cover the costs of her surgery.

Can you believe summer is almost over? I'm not ready for it to be over, although I might prefer it to be just a little cooler. I'm particularly not ready for the fall cold and flu season or the extra concern and preparations the H1N1 or H5N1 virus may mean for our community.

Democrat not sold on health care reform plan

I called Democratic Congressman Jim Marshall who represents Georgia's 8th Congressional District in Middle Georgia to check the status of health care reform currently lurching its way through Congress. I know what is being proposed. What I wanted to know was if this hydra-headed monster has a chance of passage.
