My husband thinks it's wrong to lie to one's kids. On the surface, that seems just dandy, but you might be surprised how common lying to kids really is.
Editor, The city of Hinesville is joining cities across Georgia to celebrate Georgia Cities Week on April 22-28. This week is set aside by the Georgia Municipal Association to recognize the many services, programs and events city governments provide and their contribution to a better quality of life in Georgia. This year's theme, "The Magic of Cities," highlights the ways cities continue to transform to meet the needs of residents.

Do you really think if the state takes control away from local school boards to establish charter schools as the upcoming constitutional amendment proposes, they will do it better?

More than 300 million children worldwide are without shoes. I don't mean they have no Sunday shoes or no good school shoes - I mean they absolutely have no shoes.

This week, I reluctantly attended my very first MOPS meeting. Most know that MOPS stands for mothers of preschoolers, and since my daughter won't be a preschooler for another few years, I was a little confused about why I was invited in the first place. It turns out that MOPS, or at least the MOPS group that meets at Gum Branch Baptist Church, has branched out and now offers support and fellowship to moms of children who haven't yet started elementary school.

Junior E. Lee, general manager of the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company in Greater Garfield, Ga., recently called me, all out of breath. I usually am not that concerned because after Junior has sprayed Arven Ridley's barn for fleas, it sometimes leaves him winded. But I knew this wasn't the case. He isn't scheduled to de-flea Arven's place for another two months.
