The greatest investment

Education is an investment. That's true both for students and bill-paying parents – and states. And with increased investment comes a rightful expectation of greater returns.

Alternative energy sources not the answer

The key to helping families at the pump and reducing our dependence on foreign oil is to spend tax money on developing renewable energy sources. President Barack Obama actually said this in his weekly radio address. He also said we need to increase our drilling at home. Yet he deliberately makes it difficult for the oil companies to drill in the United States and offshore, knowing that the lack of locally produced oil will drive up the cost, justifying his "spend" agenda.

State takes immigration into own hands

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ...There can be no divided allegiance here.

Recognize our true local heroes

In a coastal county like ours, water truly is everywhere. Liberty County has an abundance of wetlands, marshes, rivers, creeks and, of course, access to the Atlantic Ocean. We are fortunate, but we also have a distinct responsibility to this wealth of water spaces. We need to take care of them and protect the birds and aquatic life forms that depend on these water sources, just as humans do. When these creatures show signs of problems because their environment has been tainted, you can count on the issue working its way up the food chain to us. We should all ...

Risks are scary; worth it

My husband and I now are just a few small steps away from making what may be one of the riskiest decisions a military family can make. That's right - we're buying a house. With only the finalities left in the process, I'm starting to pack up my clothes - most of which don't fit my new pregnant figure anyway - and perusing paint swatches for a nursery.

Help break the Easter/Christmas habit

Well, another Easter holiday has passed and many of us rejoiced in celebrating the anniversary of Jesus Christ's resurrection.
