Self-sufficiency message shouldn’t thwart efforts to refine new energy

The headline on the report from the International Energy Agency proclaimed that the United States would be, by 2017, the world's top oil producer, stepping ahead of Saudi Arabia. The report also predicts the United States will be the world's largest producer of natural gas in three years, surpassing Russia.

Ecology is in a losing battle with politics

Large parts of many New Jersey cities and sections of New York City are built on reclaimed swamp, low land and former salt marsh going back more than 100 years of development. This is true of the more populated areas of the entire Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Those wetlands no longer exist to capture and contain rising water.

We are all to blame for church membership dip

A recent study from the Pew Forum on Religion and Life reveals that for the first time in our history, more people in the United States claim no religious affiliation than those who do. There are now more than 13 million self-described atheists and agnostics (nearly 6 percent of the U.S. public), as well as nearly 33 million people who say they have no particular religious affiliation. Why is that?

Counting siblings as well as blessings

One of the things I'm most thankful for is growing up in a family that gave thanks. Three times a day, at every meal, my father said this blessing: Heavenly Father, pardon our sins, and give us hearts to be thankful for this and all our blessings. Amen.

Republican party can — and must —work to change with the times

The election victory by President Barack Obama over Republican challenger Mitt Romney ends hopes for now of putting the country back on a more moderate course after four years spent veering hard left. And it leaves Republicans and conservatives here and elsewhere facing tough choices.

It’s time to change the nation’s election process

The elections finally are over. The emails and calls have stopped. The dreadful television ads have disappeared. We no longer have to listen to politicians make promises that they likely never will keep. During all of the election madness, were you satisfied with the whole process? I wasn't, and I think that the election procedure needs to be completely overhauled.

Thank you to Georgia’s parents

Editor, November is Parent Engagement Month in Georgia, and schools across the state are highlighting the role parents play in a student's education. In addition, Nov. 15 is National Parent Involvement Day, a time for all parents to consider how they can get more involved in the education of their children, regardless of grade level.

Join fight to increase pancreatic cancer five-year survival rate

Editor, Over the past 30 years there has been a revolution in science and medicine, resulting in increased survival rates for many diseases but, unfortunately, pancreatic cancer has not benefited from these advances because, historically, there haven't been enough people who know about it. As a result, pancreatic cancer is the only cancer with a five-year survival rate in the single digits, at just 6 percent. Even more alarming is that the disease is expected to move from the fourth- to the second-leading cause of cancer death in the United States by 2020 - possibly as early as 2015. We ...

Manna House unable to provide holiday meals for local families in need

Editor, It is with regret that the board of directors of Manna House announces that it may be unable to provide Thanksgiving turkey baskets to needy Liberty County families. Manna House depends upon community, United Way and federal funds to support our mission. While the community has remained generous in their donations, the hoped-for federal funds for this year have not materialized. Without this money, our ability to purchase turkeys has been curtailed.

Friendship Missionary Baptist changes name to Thee Living Word of Georgia

Editor, I am to inform the community that Friendship Missionary Baptist Church is changing its name to Thee Living Word of Georgia. Our church was established in 1892 and has been known as the little church on the corner. During our 120 years of service, we have been deemed a strong pillar of the community.

I’ve waited a long time to brag

I brag too much about my baby. I also email and post too many photos of her on social-media sites. I can't help it. That might not seem out of character for a new parent, but it is for me. I spent all of my adolescent years and a good chunk of my adult life claiming I didn't want children. So, it seems to outsiders that I've done a complete 180, although that really isn't the case.

Mommy play dates are important

Motherhood seems to make it nearly impossible to keep and make friends. It's not that old friends aren't still amazing. But if they don't have children, it can be hard to find any common ground. Chances are non-parents and single women don't find discussions about teething and diapers very interesting.
