Please don't say anything to Junior E. Lee about this, but I had several people come up to me after a recent speech to ask why they had not seen his observations in the paper recently. If he knew that, he might ask for a raise.
Casino gambling is coming to Georgia. That is probably the horse to bet on.
It was over Sunday dinner that my sister told me what I did not know. A childhood friend - the red-headed, freckle-faced girl with laughing eyes and the brightest sense of humor possible - was sitting vigil with her husband as death crept close.
Cigarette litter is nasty - and unnecessary. So join us in the next few weeks as we remind local smokers, "Don't flick it; dispose of your cigarette litter responsibly."
Georgia legislators this year amended laws governing procedures for appealing county tax assessments on real and personal property. The changes took effect July 1.
Editor, I read the article ("Police to provide hospital security," July 22, front page) with much disdain. Certainly, it's a multilayered mistake that could easily be driven by the position that Mayor James Thomas holds on the Liberty County Hospital Authority.
Editor, I'm a retired combat veteran and member of the Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission, and I'm announcing my intent to run for the District 2 seat on the Hinesville City Council.
Thank you, Liberty County and surrounding areas. Project Reach G.A.N.G. Inc. and its executive director, Lavonia LeCounte, give all credit to God for inspiring them to host this outstanding event. The attendance at this year's Back to School Rally was 1,500-plus.
Editor, We committed our infantry on two disastrous Mideast battlefields. You know, those places where Christian churches and Christians are not allowed. The result - many thousands dead and maybe a hundred thousand wounded. Some so horribly, their lives are destroyed. We wasted trillions of dollars. Well, maybe not. They say war is good for business.
I want you to hear this from me rather than from Donald Trump. I have been outed. I am a "bed-wetting liberal." No longer can I hide in the closet, among my bell-bottom pants and Nehru jackets that I am sure will be making a stylistic comeback one of these days.
Georgia is a state where we measure ourselves by how other people think of us.
I was hired Nov. 13, 1983, as chief deputy clerk of the Office of the Clerk of Courts of Liberty County, having served previously for almost three years as administrator of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit of Georgia's public-defender program and earlier for five years as a high-school mathematics educator. I readily realized how technology could be used in the office to automate redundant and laborious clerical tasks and to increase efficiency of work performed by office staff.
My husband is like a relentless teenager. When he wants something, he persists until it's easier for me to say "yes" just to get him out of my hair.
Editor, In March, I wrote in to express my horror at the prospect of the Riceboro mayor and City Council voting themselves healthy raises (more than double the current pay). This statement would only become fact if we choose to elect the same slate of officials in November.
Editor, I am really tired of all of the "political correctness," especially concerning the Confederate battle flag.

Another school year is underway in our state, which means that it's time to start complaining about the Georgia High School Association.
