Fighting family violence

Wearing the uniform, the respect, the benefits, the purpose; serving in the United States military is a commitment that comes with great admirability. Military families are resilient, adaptive and strong, right?

Were it not for 'Trees,' this might not be

If you are a regular observer of this space, you are no doubt familiar with the story I am about to share. I have told it several times over the years. With your indulgence, I would like to tell it again. It is about seeking out a college professor to thank him for turning my life around.

The septic tanks of Glynn

In the news: If you think you're getting overdeveloped in our area, imagine being in Glynn County, where county commissioners recently approved a developer's request to put in up to 1,500 septic tanks on 3,000 acres near the Little Satilla River.

Neighbor's flag upsets woman

Editor: On June 15, I got new neighbors. It was a joyous day. The neighboring house has been vacant for months. To know that the small house next door will not fall into disrepair and become an eye-sore was a relief to me. And, the new occupants were familiar to my husband. He met them two months prior, in April. When he walked in the house, he told me people were looking at the house and asking questions concerning the neighborhood.

The war has been over 152 years, y'all

My son, a learned philosopher, says of an impending competition between two football teams he particularly dislikes: "May they play a zero-zero tie in the mud."

Young ‘thief’ needs to learn value of things others own

Q: We've just been informed that our 7-year-old son has been effectively "expelled" from the private school he attended last year because of repeated instances of stealing small items from classmates and, on one occasion, from the teacher's desk. We're rather shocked because our son was the highest-performing student in his first-grade class and the school's administration promised to work with us concerning the problem. Through the school year, he stole at least 20 items from other children, things like pencils, pencil sharpeners, and several of these new toys called "spinners." He's an only child ...

Spaceports have not worked, neither would Camden's

Editor: Some writers and elected officials have extolled the virtues of spaceports as if they were general manufacturing industries producing industrial or consumer products. Apparently, they have little knowledge of the "typical" spaceport. History proves that unless it is a NASA spaceport, taxpayers will be paying for decades for a project that never produces even the smallest fraction of the promised jobs and prosperity.
