Calling all Christmas trees that need recycling to the ‘Chipper’

I wish Christmas was every day of the year, but, sadly, it does not work like that. I still like to stretch the Christmas season out as long as possible, but I do not like the "undecorating" part. It is not nearly as fun as decorating! But there is one good thing about the post-Christmas season: You can join over 100,000 other Georgians by treecycling your live Christmas tree. On Jan. 10, we will "chip" all those trees into useful mulch or give them away for fish habitat in local ponds. So this year's mulched Christmas trees can ...

Looking back on a year of saying goodbye to friends

When the New Year arrives every year, I, like most, look forward to the next 12 months filled with promise, opportunity, and a chance to reform bad habits. I've already done that. In early November, I went on a serious diet instead of waiting until mid-January. Tink was puzzled.

Community made donation of holiday meals to elderly possible

Editor, Once again, with help from this great community, Seven Ministries was able to have another successful Christmas Giveaway of turkeys and hams to senior citizens. This annual event is made possible from your donations to The Jackie Gilliard-Henderson Memorial Scholarship Walk-A-Thon. The donation overflow assists our ministry of giving and we’re able to put funds back into the community. That allows us to host other events like our back-to-school rally. And along with awarding scholarships to graduating high school seniors, we’re able to provide support to the local Manna House, the Liberty County Homeless Coalition, and other ...

Thanks for forum for opinions

Editor, Thanks a lot for printing most of my letters over the years and withholding the ones that would have gotten me arrested. I am preparing to move north to New York City and will sorely miss all the reasons I chose to write those letters while I lived here. I'm not sure the New York Times is going to print my thoughts, but I'll still send them my ramblings when I feel it is needed.

Man cherished by many belongs to all

It happened a few months back. My father-in-law celebrated, to our great joy, his 88th birthday. There was no pomp or circumstance involved. He abhors that. Because he is among the most beautifully well-mannered people I have ever encountered, he politely took all the calls though he really wished we would just treat it as another day and leave him alone to watch the news channel.

Fort Stewart Experiences Unique Birth

Rushed, often unexpectedly early baby deliveries are not something new to any hospital. In most cases though, at least the mother makes it inside the building before giving birth. That wasn't quite the case at Fort Stewart, Georgia's Winn Army Community Hospital in the early morning hours of Jan. 15.

Budgeting must be open, fair

As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, chairman of the Economic Development and Tourism Committee, and a member of the House's Ways and Means Committee, last week was a busy one for me. We gathered for four days of hearings at Gov. Nathan Deal's office, where the budget was presented. We also listened as state agencies offered input about budget needs and then asked questions regarding which programs worked well or were under- or over-funded.
