Make Halloween ghoulishly 'green' in '17

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. When the kids were young, I absolutely loved decorating the house inside and out for this creepy day. We had so much fun with that and with creating their costumes. Our house was for many years a must-see site at Halloween and at Christmas. I know Halloween is now a target for the silly ultra-politically correct crowd. That is sad because for kids and forever–kid adults, it is one of the most fun days of the year.

Advice for a president who needs it

Pardon this journalistic equivalent of spitting in the wind but I thought it was important that you hear from one of the "deplorables" who resides on neither the left wing or the right wing. Believe it or not, there are a lot of us in the middle.

Children do not need to worry about things they cannot understand

Q: My son just turned 5 and is starting to ask various questions about parents including why some people have two parents and he only has one. About two months before he turned 2, his "donor" said he wasn't "feeling it" (his exact words) with him and didn't want to participate in his life anymore. How can I explain that to my son?

Balance in life includes caring for community

One of the great pleasures I have in working with Keep Liberty Beautiful is getting to know some truly wonderful local citizens over the years. Particularly, getting to watch young people volunteer at a young age and as they grow up become even more involved with this program.

Lets each do our part for a clean city

The city of Hinesville tries to take a pro-active approach in all departments in an effort to better our city and be true to our roles as public servants. Why not have that same approach in code enforcement? These public officers enforce a variety of codes to include nuisance concerns, property maintenance, temporary signs, zoning issues and even property assessments following a disaster.
