Caller needs to expose boss' practices

Editor, This is to the Sound off caller in Sunday's Coastal Courier who referenced a supervisor who apparently marks the time card of a county employee as worked, even though she does not show up for work.

How to improve future sessions

One of the more amazing spectacles in the days after the government shutdown ended was the obsession in Washington with who won and who lost in the showdown. Yes, the capital is focused on next year's elections, but honestly! There was only one real loser, and that was the American people.

Don't fall for silly scheme

Editor, Citizens of Hinesville beware. There is a company that goes by the name Registered Disbursement Division, and it is sending out letters stating that you have already won large sums of money and all you must do is send them $20 or $25 to process the check.

Thanks for helping family in time of need

Editor, There are no words to express my sincere gratitude for the outpouring of love, care and concern after the loss of my daughter, Allyson Burrill, in June. My family was honored and humbled by the overwhelming level of support from the Hinesville community, Air Force Detachment 607, the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and many others who provided prayers; words of comfort; served as pallbearers or honorary pallbearers; sent food, flowers or cards; provided personal services; shared their remembrances; or otherwise assisted our family during this time of sorrow.

Votes really do count, use them

Editor, The city of Midway's elections are coming. I was told by many people that their votes wouldn't change anything, so they don't plan going to vote. This is where our system fails.

Athletes' minds work in fascinating ways

My parents told great stories. I've told you that. How they would both weave long, intriguing tales from not much of a story or one that was so good to begin with that it took little embellishment.

Swarm of gnat nation has arrived

Just a wisp of time elapsed, and the almighty sand-gnat is back with a vengeance. Like a swallow returning to Capistrano or a martin to a gourd, the little varmints are back just in time for the Blessing of the Fleet. They just refuse to give up.

Don't be at kid's beck and call

Call me an old-timer, but moms and dads just did things differently when I was a child. The overall approach to parenting seems to have changed so much. My parents fostered independence in my siblings and me. They wanted us to learn early on that we needed to be able to speak and do things for ourselves, and the sooner we understood that, the better off we'd be.

Irritating, you got to love it

Even by my impossibly high standards, this has been a good week. It began with a whack upside the head from a reader in South Georgia after I opined that those who want to change the way we teach our children in public schools ought to have their kids in public schools. I was referring to the efforts led by Sen. William Ligon, R-Brunswick, to overturn the Common Core curriculum in the recent legislative session.

Legislative session was an embarrassment

Having had time to reflect on the recently completed 2014 session of the Georgia General Assembly, it is with great regret that I have to say it was the most embarrassing performance by your state legislature that I can remember.
