A future with renewable energy

Imagine a future where America is powered by reliable, sustainable and cleaner fuel supplies that also generate good, middle class jobs and ultimately strengthen our economy. At the Department of Agriculture, we can. That future is much closer to reality in part because of the Obama Administration's investments, which have nearly doubled renewable energy generation from wind, solar and geothermal sources since 2008.

Shepherd Center rebuilds lives

Those of you who regularly check this space know this, but to the newcomers out there: I am a whiner. Like Goldilocks, I whine when the porridge is too hot. I whine when the porridge is too cold. But unlike Goldilocks, I whine even when the glop is just right.

Article didn't reflect Ludowici council meeting accurately

Editor, After reading an article in the Coastal Courier about the recent Ludowici City Council meeting, I feel I need to make a few points. The article states that the council discussed the mayor's travel pay; it did not. The meeting was set up a week early and for 9 a.m., even though the council said meetings would be at 6 p.m. This was a ploy to have a meeting the public wouldn't be able to attend. They did hire the police chief after a lengthy executive meeting, which only three members of the council attended ...

No one is perfect -- really, they're not

I'm always a little bit jealous of those military spouses who seem to have it all together. You know the type. They're forever patient with their children. They don't ever fight with their husbands. They present four perfectly dressed children at early morning activities and still somehow find time to straighten their hair and do their makeup just so.

Fix Georgia's health care at home

After a historic three days of oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court, the fate of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act known as ObamaCare lies in the hands of nine justices. Until the expected high court ruling in June, pundits and policy wonks will pick apart the questions and answers in the oral arguments. But Americans know that whether the law stands, crumbles or collapses, health care policy in these United States needs a fix.

Obama's Supreme Court challenge questionable

I've said it before and I'll say it again: President Barack Obama thinks that he is the supreme leader of the United States. If you studied your history - or lived it - you know of other "supreme leaders" that have arisen in other countries from time to time. That didn't turn out so good.

Daydreaming about wished-for headlines

I tend to daydream. Sometimes I look at the shape of the clouds above me and I can see a tea kettle or maybe the little fat guy that runs North Korea. And then sometimes I just close my eyes and think of headlines I would like to see, such as:

Questionable things going on in Midway

Liberty County collects property taxes from the citizens of Midway. I still do not understand why this is. I would like to know what services are performed by the county for the city. Personally, I think the county collects more taxes than it spends on city services. In other words, the county may be ripping off the city, and no one seems to be doing anything about it.

Litter prevention, accountability

I believe in miracles. I know many people do not, but Easter is a wonderful time to remember that miracles do happen. I have experienced several in my lifetime - some that were big and incredible and that I know made a life-changing impact on me. I also experience many small miracles that confirm how good life is just when I need a gentle reminder that this world is full of wonderful things.
