What will happen on Sept. 30

Sept. 30 is the end date for those in Congress to reach an agreement on the budget and spending. The threat of a possible government shutdown looms. What does that mean for those of us outside of the political power circle?

Race discussion deserves public forum

Editor, Having grown up just south of the Mason-Dixon line, my childhood life experiences were fully integrated. Upon reaching the age of majority, I was off to experience the world starting with the civil-rights movement, then several years of war and the associated inhumanity of mankind against their brethren and the pain and poverty it creates. This was followed by many years in different states and countries observing life.

Kingston keeping eye on aging submarines

A good many members of Congress seem to be perfectly content to just sit back and watch the nation's defenses, both domestic and abroad, walk a netless, high-wire tightrope.

Losing a friend does a number on the heart

It seems too many loved ones recently have said good-bye to this vale of grief and sorrow and said hello to sweet eternity. Heaven is blessed, but I am distressed.

Another tragic shooting will awaken gun debate

Monday's news that a shooting rampage left 12 dead at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., was jarring and also left us asking the one question that matters most and yet is hardest to answer.

More points to debate

Editor, I'm not much with back-and-forths, but I never shy away from a good debate, either, so as a rebuttal of sorts, I will address the comments made in Bruce A. McCartney's letter to the editor:

Fighting child abuse, neglect should be priority

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month in Georgia, as proclaimed by Gov. Nathan Deal. Child abuse is a subject I don't like to think about, let alone write about, and you probably would just as soon not read about. But it is there, and we need to acknowledge it and demand some solutions.

Don't be at kid's beck and call

Call me an old-timer, but moms and dads just did things differently when I was a child. The overall approach to parenting seems to have changed so much. My parents fostered independence in my siblings and me. They wanted us to learn early on that we needed to be able to speak and do things for ourselves, and the sooner we understood that, the better off we'd be.
