Just keep moving forward

This Saturday, I participated in and finished my first 5k race. Never mind that I came in second to last. Never mind the sharp pain shooting through my seemingly ever-expanding hips. It felt nice to finish something.

Welcome troops, honor those overseas

It's wonderful to have members of the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team back home. The last of the Vanguard troops have walked across Fort Stewart's Cottrell Field, uncased their colors and embraced the loved ones who've patiently waited for their return, bringing Fort Stewart back to full capacity.

Two of my favorite schoolteachers, grandson Nicholas Wansley and Mandy Bragg, were married last week. It was a beautiful and moving ceremony. I pray their marriage will be as happy as they, their families and friends were on that special day.

Consider why so many people are unemployed

You throw back the comforter made by Guanzhou Meishi Textile Co. and slip out from under the Egyptian cotton sheets. After brushing your teeth, you dress, putting on a shirt made in Thailand and a tie imported from the U.K. The look is complete with a suit made in Hong Kong. Not wanting to be late, you check the time on your Swiss-made watch as you slip into a pair of Italian loafers.

Government must end abuse of aid program

Politicians have been quick to criticize the federal stimulus package, calling it a waste of tax dollars.
