Make election count

Editor: Next month, the voters of Midway will be electing a mayor and city council. The big question is who should the voters elect? Let's begin with the incumbents.

Lets each do our part for a clean city

The city of Hinesville tries to take a pro-active approach in all departments in an effort to better our city and be true to our roles as public servants. Why not have that same approach in code enforcement? These public officers enforce a variety of codes to include nuisance concerns, property maintenance, temporary signs, zoning issues and even property assessments following a disaster.

Parents, don’t worry about kids liking you

I am sometimes asked if I think the "parenting pendulum" is swinging back toward where it was 60-plus years ago or at least toward a tolerable middle point.

Only rain should go down drains

Ever wonder what those little drain holes are for in sidewalks and next to streets? Is that where those urban myth alligators are? Or are alien outposts hidden below the community waiting to take over the earth? Or are these convenient little holes for citizens to dump cigarette butts, plastic bottles, grease, and yard debris in?
