Editor, Osama has assumed sea temperature. How long will it take for the liberals in the media and around the country to condemn America for killing the world-famous religious leader and honorable man, Osama bin Laden? They may be silent for a day or two, but soon they will praise the evil man as misunderstood or justified in his terrorist actions.
Sheila the Family Wonder Dog is one proud pooch today.
There's nothing nuanced about Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens' understanding of the state's "open meetings" law – and that's a good thing.
Each year since 1969, the federal government has spent more than it has taken in from taxes, causing the United States Treasury Department to borrow to keep up with Congressional spending.

Finally, our summer vacation has been planned. I'm quickly learning that making plans as a civilian and making plans as a military dependent are two very different things.
The annual countywide planning workshop attended by local officials is a necessary and useful tool. Getting leaders of the community together to discuss problems, devise strategies, and prioritize specific goals is an exercise that has paid dividends for Liberty County and other communities that have similar retreats.

Do you ever wonder what is in your water? I do. Even with a water filter at home, I still get a little suspicious of where my water has been and what it has gone through. I think I have seen too many things over the years at these cleanups around our waterways.
Mother's Day is today and mothers across the country are being honored, which they should be every day.
I've just pulled together some poll results on a variety of questions that involve things that go "bump in the night" as well as conspiracies.

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.
