Pup hesitant to take backseat

Before my daughter Reese was born, I had another "baby." For several years, my golden retriever, Abbie, pretty much had it made. My husband and I welcomed her to our home when she was 12 weeks old in September 2007 and wasted no time showering her with affection, toys, treats and walks.

Sheriff appeals for help solving Walthour murder case

Editor, The Liberty County Sheriff's Office is issuing an urgent plea to members of our community for any information regarding the murder of Ernie Walthour. I want to remind everyone that a $25,000 reward has been offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this senseless crime. Our investigation indicates that someone out there has the information that could solve this crime. For the sake of Ernie's family and in the interest of justice, I am appealing to anyone who could help.

In end, you get what you settle for

It has long been my belief that the dreams tucked into our hearts are the compass we're given to find our direction in life. Children know at an early age what they're called to do. Sadly, too few grow up to follow that calling because life's demands and sensibilities get in the way.

Daily routine is a lot different

Primping is fun - at least I've always thought so. Most people enjoy looking their best, and before I was a mom, scarcely a day went by when my eyeliner and blow-dryer didn't see the light of day.

What you should know about Congress

Deeply unpopular and flagrantly unproductive, Congress is on its August recess right now. It won't return until Sept. 9, after a five-week recess, leaving itself just a few days to settle issues like raising the debt ceiling and passing a federal budget.

DOT letter far from the truth

Editor, This is in response to the letter to the editor from Ms. Karon Ivery, GDOT's District 5 engineer. Her last sentence said it all - "mandate a turn lane." GDOT was quick to mandate the turn lane for Midway's proposed McDonald's but did not supply the funds for the project.
