A realization that times have changed

With the arrest of George Zimmerman, who now stands accused of second-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, maybe the nation collectively can exhale. This case has brought to the surface simmering issues many thought had long since been put to rest.

The adventures of being a pit bull owner

My dog has a chair in the living room. It's one of those huge, rattan papasan chairs from the 1970s that we picked up from my husband's grandpa.

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.

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 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.
