Season is for hope, renewal, redemption

There seems to be a lot wrong with the world today. Just in recent weeks, the deranged among us have killed our children en masse and individually. Our business and political leaders seem to be unable to represent our best interests.

Make road grant money available for all

There are some 20,000 miles of federal and state highways in Georgia - the interstate system and major roads that link our cities one to the other, carry our commuters to and from employment centers, and give structure to our thriving logistics industry and interstate commerce.

I wish I could’ve been there in Bethlehem

This column was a favorite of my friend, Otis Brumby Jr., publisher of the Marietta Daily Journal and Neighbor newspapers, who passed away earlier this year. It is dedicated to his memory.

Budget challenges facing our state

When the Georgia General Assembly convenes in January in Atlanta, revenue - or the lack thereof - may decide what gets done.

Build stronger educational, financial base for children

With the holiday season upon us, most Georgians are thinking about celebrations with family and friends, holiday breaks and, of course, gifts.

Parents and children from all types of families need to ‘play’

The differentiation between stay-at-home moms and working moms may not be as pronounced these days as it has been in the past, but I do believe it still is alive and well. I don't think either group works hard to keep this barrier in place; it just seems to exist due to different lifestyle habits, schedules and family routines.

There’s still time to make a difference

It's gratifying that generous Georgians raised almost $800,000 in one 24-hour period recently to benefit various nonprofits across the state.

2013 has been year of waste

Editor, Recapping 2012 as it comes to an end: mayor and council accept pay raises; city employees do not get a raise; empty buses continue to circle the community; the airport has no flights; the Romeo and Juliet balcony on city hall is completed; we spend money on visiting Chinese; we retreat to the expensive Georgia coast; Hinesville contract employees drive city vehicles home and to work, so we get a nice fat city tax increase. At least we dodged the TSPLOST.

Tax increase demands action

Editor, As the Courier reported Dec. 7, I went before the Hinesville City Council to oppose raising the millage rate. And I did state that the county elected officials (Hinesville, BoE, BoC) don't have a taxing problem, but a spending problem!

The U.S. government is broken, unbalanced

The federal government is not only broke, it's broken. Our founding fathers established three branches of government as a means to keep each one in check. These branches are the executive, the legislative and the judicial.

Bad habits sure are hard to break

I wish I could pick and choose which of my habits, traits and characteristics my daughter will inherit and pick up. Since Reese was born in April, I find myself increasingly thinking about trying to set a good example. I haven't actually implemented any changes, however. It's much easier to talk the talk than it is to walk the walk.

Republican party needs direction before it can compromise with Dems

Finding a spokesman for the Republican Party right now is reminiscent of the "Who's on First?" routine made famous by Abbott and Costello.
