It is your last chance to recycle all those electronics and household items that are taking up space you need for the holidays.

Political support for Medicaid expansion in Georgia is on life support, and the prognosis may be terminal. This doesn't mean, however, that there isn't a pathway forward for those looking for health-care solutions. It's the same pathway that has solved many of our problems: innovation.
Editor, This letter is in response to the editorial in your Sunday, Oct. 25, paper by Wesley Tharpe titled "Bolstering Ga. families through targeted tax reform." His Georgia Budget and Policy Institute has released a report that calls for a "targeted tax cut to working Georgia families." He elaborates on the plan: "A single Georgia mother with one child and working full-time at the minimum wage gets a tax cut of about $500 under the proposed reforms. A married family of three making about $38,000 a year receives an estimated tax cut of nearly $700."
The history revisionists are still as busy as bees trying to rid us of all vestiges of the Old South. That means some brave soul is going to have to tell Wheeler County that they have to change their name because the county is named for Confederate Gen. Joe Wheeler. Oh, and while you are at it, change the name of the county seat of Alamo. It might just offend Mexicans who got a bad rap at the other Alamo in 1836. They were just mad at the time because they couldn't register to vote.
Editor, I would like to respond to a Sound off in the Wednesday, Oct. 28 paper. The caller brought up the fact that people on Social Security retirement are not getting a raise this year. This is now three years in a row, and it is unfair to the retirees.
This is what the future looks like.
Wow! I have so much to be thankful for!
Editor, I have recently had the fortune to visit Hinesville. Over the course of the 10 or 12 years, I have visited your fine city. And I will tell you, you have some of the finest restaurants I have ever had the gastronomic pleasure to frequent. As a frequent visitor, I manage to keep abreast of some of the local politics and policies. Having family and friends doesn't hurt in that respect.
Editor, More than a thousand fatalities. More than a thousand lives lost on Georgia's roads.
When I was 6, the boy with hair the color of cotton and eyes tinted sapphire came to live with us. He was the same age and size as me, but more timid and less secure. Depending on the day, we were either the best of friends or the worst of enemies.
If you have just arrived in our fair state from some alien environment like the planet Krutopia or maybe Vermont, I need to explain to you a cataclysmic event taking place this Saturday afternoon in the city of Jacksonville, Florida, which is a suburb of Greater Metropolitan Brunswick, much like Vermont is a suburb of Canada.
Coastal Georgia public officials, bicyclers, joggers, hikers and walkers are being urged to express their support at 1 p.m. Nov. 4 in Darien for constructing the proposed Coastal Georgia Greenway from Savannah to St. Marys, which would be part of the proposed East Coast Greenway from Calais, Maine, to Key West, Florida.
The phrase "GASB 77" is not just a random collection of letters and numbers.
