Why criticize the government

Some readers think that I take delight in criticizing President Barack Obama. I don't. I would prefer to see a strong president leading our country, a president who understands how our country has succeeded for the past 200-plus years, a president who wants our country to advance economically, a president who does not apologize to the world for what America has accomplished, a president who understands the importance of a tough defensive position to protect our citizens, a president who understands the words, "We the People."

Visit with children a real eye-opener

Cheating by Georgia’s school systems is not acceptable

Gov. Nathan Deal says he is "alarmed" by a recent state report on cheating on national standardized tests in Georgia's public schools, this time in Dougherty County.
