Play it safe around water

It's Memorial Day weekend, and that means summer is officially here. With the warmer months come opportunities for outdoor fun - trips to the playground, picnics and, of course, swimming.

Not all lawmaking is as clear as day

Want to know what's causing a lot of people in Washington to work long hours right now? Here's a hint: it's not immigration reform or gun control or, for that matter, any other legislation coming down the pike. Instead, it's a pair of 3-year-old laws.

Student loves newspapers

I always have liked print newspapers. Partly what inspired me was an American Girl movie about a 9-year-old girl living in the 1930s during the Great Depression. Her name is Kit Kittredge.

America needs more voters who actually care

Another member of the U.S. House of Representatives has introduced yet another bill in a futile attempt to limit how long members of Congress can stay in office. The measure, authored by Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., would limit House members to three terms, or six years, and senators to two terms, or 12 years.

Violent discipline means someone failed

Editor, I am writing to express my shock and dismay over an incident I witnessed on May 9 in the early afternoon as I was leaving a hardware store. A young mother - and I use that term loosely - was severely and literally beating a small boy with a strap that looked like it had been made from a radiator belt. The child was screaming in pain and terror, and I felt compelled to stop and say something to the woman.

Make your house 'smart,' save water

Last weekend, my husband and I toured the 2013 HGTV Smart Home in Jacksonville Beach. I am kind of a house-and-garden junkie, and I avidly record shows on HGTV to watch when I have time.

Urge to compare children is hard to resist

I'm finding it hard not to compare my child to others her age. Reese is healthy, communicative, active and right where she needs to be developmentally. At her 1-year checkup, our pediatrician was pleased with her growth and progress. He assured me she is hitting all of her milestones right on target. That news was music to my ears because, just like every parent on the planet, all I want is for my little girl to live a long, healthy, happy life.

Midway minutes flap draws apology

Editor, I would like to extend my heartfelt apologies to those citizens who had planned to conduct business before the Midway City Council, others who were in attendance and to the citizens of Midway for the unprofessional conduct of the mayor pro tem and another Midway councilman at the May 13 council meeting. These two elected officials left the meeting in protest over a legitimate request for an oral reading of previous council minutes as provided for in "Robert's Rules of Order" the lawful rules governing the conduct of business before the council.

Midway Council members walk out of meeting, should resign

Editor, Midway Councilman Levern Clancy Jr. and Mayor Pro Tem Curtis Roberts Sr. should resign immediately from the Midway City Council. I was at the monthly council meeting Monday when past council meeting minutes were due to be read, which is the procedure according to "Robert's Rules of Order" - the rules that govern Midway's meeting procedures.

School nurses have important role

Editor, Parents should be able to send their children to school with the peace of mind that they will remain safe and healthy. Given that today's children face more chronic health illnesses - asthma, diabetes, food allergies, etc. - than ever before, I take my role as a licensed, professional school nurse very seriously. I am grateful for the teachers, administrators and professional support staff with whom I work each day. They help to create a healthy learning environment for every child in the Liberty County School System. My knowledge, assessment skills and judgment help to ensure I can provide quality ...
