Clubs keep students involved

When they aren't learning the all-important reading, writing and 'rithmetic, Liberty County students find themselves gravitating to other on-campus opportunities to expand their horizons. Arts, music, athletics and civic participation top the list of popular clubs, but growing in popularity are organizations that help students improve themselves as members of society.

Long Commission chairman to continue

Long County Commission Chairman Bobby Walker withdrew his resignation last week, opting instead to stay on as the panel's leader until Dec. 31. In June, Walker said he was stepping down after questions surfaced about his role in having members of his family employed by the county. In July, he said he would stay on as chairman until the commission's August meeting. Now Walker says he thinks it would be best for the county if he stuck around.

Even squirrels think it's too hot in Georgia

I love the state of Georgia better than apple butter, but sometimes the place can try my patience. Like right now. It is just too hot.

Candidates' antics likely scared voters

Thankfully, the name calling and mudslinging that presented itself as a runoff is over and done with. After a race that sank state politics to some pretty low places, Republican Nathan Deal narrowly edged out fellow GOP member Karen Handel to win the right to face Democrat Roy Barnes in November.

Expressing emotion is OK

Taking walks down memory lane is sometimes painful when your fondest memories are of a man who is currently deployed to Iraq. The wedding photos I planned to frame and hang on my bedroom walls two months ago are still sitting in their box. And I'm still nervously glancing at them from across the room, knowing that I'll cry the minute I start to look through them.

Church, where are you?

Growing up in church has given me a unique perspective on walking the Christian walk. I've had opportunities to share the room with gifted men and women of God. Generally, as pastors and parishioners, we're able to quote scripture dealing with the "fruits of the spirit" - love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, faith, etc. However, we all know that quoting scripture and actually practicing what you preach are two separate things.
