Herman Cain is excellent candidate

Editor, The American Dream is an ideal instilled in children across this great nation as they make their way through school. We have always been taught that hard work, persistence and sacrifice are the keys to success and that, in America, the sky is the limit in regards to achieving that success.

Keep this election season clean, fair

Election season is upon us. Here's hoping Liberty County is treated to some good, clean races.

God's time is right time for life events

There's a fine line between a cute baby bump and being so uncomfortably ginormous that your walk becomes a waddle. I recently crossed that line.

Public doesn't understand Tea Party mission

Has everyone taken leave of their senses? The president of the Teamsters Union, James Hoffa Jr., shouted, "Take these (expletives) out," at a Labor Day rally while Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Los Angeles, attacked the Tea Party by saying, "As far as I'm concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell."

Statue of Liberty, a symbol of our country

My wife and I recently made a trip to Long Island, N.Y., to visit a brother of mine and his family. During our stay, we went into New York City to take in a few sights. The weather was hot and humid, and our party included my two nephews, 4 years old and 10 months.

Parting thoughts on 10th anniversary

Before we leave the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93 over Shanksville, Pa., allow me a couple of parting thoughts.

The challenge: Oysters, no saltines

The History Channel recently had a feature titled "You Don't Know Dixie." It was a great production that explored our language, food, music, inventions, humor, vices, etc. I've been a lot of places in the South, and I've learned that we have broad experiences that may be very similar in some respects but will vary greatly in others.

Going back to a 'new' New York

I love New York. I love the sights, the sounds, even the smell of New York. As a 19-year-old girl from the Midwest, moving to New York City in 1986 wasn't merely an adventure, it was the equivalent of moving to a different planet.

Expectation of war now almost normal

I was just 11 years old on Sept. 11, 2001 - just a homeschooled girl on her way to an Iowa livestock sale to help her church provide the hot meal, beef and noodles (with a side of corn, of course). As a natural-born people watcher, I mostly just sat back and observed other's reactions. I had no reaction of my own.
