As we near our Sixth Annual Rivers Alive event on Saturday, Oct. 22, I wanted to give you an opportunity to test your own water smarts. This is an opportunity to find out just how much you know about taking care of our local waterways. This little quiz is courtesy of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Editor, I am sending you some of my suggestions on how to cut military spending. For my qualifications on this subject, I spent 21 years in the U.S. Army, plus I was a military brat before that.
Phooey - that's about the only reaction from an Atlanta Braves fan that's printable in a family newspaper after the 2011 team completed the worst September collapse ever.
Georgia's unemployment rate is at a six-month high - 10.4 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. That's more than a full percentage point higher than the national unemployment rate of 9.1 percent. All over the state, families are struggling to make ends meet. Some have to choose between paying bills and buying food.
It was 4 a.m. and I was up for the third time that night for yet another trip to the bathroom when I heard the rooster crowing.
Anyone requiring further explanation why the Georgia General Assembly adopted its own laws against illegal immigration during the last session of the General Assembly need only to consider the recent nationwide round-up by duly appointed officers with Immigrations and Custom Enforcement. Of the hundreds of nonregistered aliens taken into custody by the federally empowered agency, more than 1,600 had felony convictions.
The injection of the sleeping giant, the Savannah Morning News, into an environmental-based fray is a welcome change. I am referring to an article by none other than Tom Barton, editorial editor of that same paper.
I was born during World War II. Since then, I have seen great industrial advances inspired by American business ingenuity. In the 1940s, consumers could buy a car in any color they wanted - as long as it was black. Air-conditioning was supplied by winding down the windows. Most cars had a stick shift rather than an automatic transmission. Motorist music sources were limited to an AM radio with few stations
Every parent familiar with the noisy and chaotic, physically, mentally and emotionally demanding reality of taking care of even one or two children – which is to say, every parent – owes respect bordering on awe for those who responsibly take care of many.
Everybody needs a guru. Someone you can go to whenever you find yourself stuck on the horns of a moral dilemma. Some climb the mountain tops of Nepal to sit before an old guy wrapped in a bed sheet and listen to him prattle about inner beauty.
Congratulations to the state Environmental Protection Division for dropping the hammer on King America Finishing by identifying the company as the source of the recent fish kills in the Ogeechee.
It's that time of year again - election season. And as campaign signs begin to grace more and more business windows and front yards, we wanted to take a moment to familiarize our readers with just a couple of rules regarding campaign-related news coverage and letters to the editor.
Kudos to the United States for repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which banned openly gay Americans from serving in the U.S. military since it was introduced in 1993. It's about time we brought the military into the 21st century.
I'll grudgingly admit that I sometimes avoid Army wives. Of course, as an Army wife myself, I know that's completely ridiculous.
Editor, I am a mother of five children, one of whom is very ill and confined to a wheelchair. After some scheduling confusion Wednesday over the dates of an audition, my son, Tyler, found himself at Snelson-Golden Middle School with no way to call me and no ride home. He bravely began to travel the long road back to Highway 84 and then headed up 84 to the stoplight near the Department of Labor.
As a spouse of a retired U.S. Army veteran, I have traveled the world and in my travels I have achieved many successes.
