Judge clears way for police to check for undocumented immigrants

Those seeking stronger enforcement of this country's laws against illegal immigration - which is long overdue - can take heart from a decision this week by U.S. District Judge Tom Thrash in Atlanta and, prior to that, a decision by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The labor battles in Michigan

Michigan gave birth to the United Auto Workers. The union was founded at a convention in Detroit in 1935. After its famous sit-down strike in 1937 in Flint, Mich., the UAW won recognition by General Motors and, in the next several years, by Chrysler and Ford. It was the advent of an era of industrial unionization that may be coming to a symbolic end in the same place it started.

Season is for hope, renewal, redemption

There seems to be a lot wrong with the world today. Just in recent weeks, the deranged among us have killed our children en masse and individually. Our business and political leaders seem to be unable to represent our best interests.

Make road grant money available for all

There are some 20,000 miles of federal and state highways in Georgia - the interstate system and major roads that link our cities one to the other, carry our commuters to and from employment centers, and give structure to our thriving logistics industry and interstate commerce.

Parents and children from all types of families need to ‘play’

The differentiation between stay-at-home moms and working moms may not be as pronounced these days as it has been in the past, but I do believe it still is alive and well. I don't think either group works hard to keep this barrier in place; it just seems to exist due to different lifestyle habits, schedules and family routines.

2013 has been year of waste

Editor, Recapping 2012 as it comes to an end: mayor and council accept pay raises; city employees do not get a raise; empty buses continue to circle the community; the airport has no flights; the Romeo and Juliet balcony on city hall is completed; we spend money on visiting Chinese; we retreat to the expensive Georgia coast; Hinesville contract employees drive city vehicles home and to work, so we get a nice fat city tax increase. At least we dodged the TSPLOST.

Tax increase demands action

Editor, As the Courier reported Dec. 7, I went before the Hinesville City Council to oppose raising the millage rate. And I did state that the county elected officials (Hinesville, BoE, BoC) don't have a taxing problem, but a spending problem!

The U.S. government is broken, unbalanced

The federal government is not only broke, it's broken. Our founding fathers established three branches of government as a means to keep each one in check. These branches are the executive, the legislative and the judicial.
