Return insurance regulation to states

Much of the impasse in Washington regarding health care reform relates to health insurance regulation and mandates. There is a very simple solution: Return the power to regulate insurance back to the states, where it rightly belongs.

Playing the fool

April Fools' Day has come and gone, but on the first of the month, I kept marveling at how - starting even before he ran, continuing through his campaign and certainly since Inauguration Day - Donald Trump has played us for a fool. Successfully, I might add.

Trumpism is in crisis already

This isn't a function of poll numbers, or any melodrama of the past months, but something more fundamental: No officeholder in Washington seems to understand President Donald Trump's populism or have a cogent theory of how to effect it in practice, including the president himself.

A reason to be 'Liberty County proud'

Editor: The theme for National County Government Month for 2017 is "Brilliant Ideas at Work." This theme could easily have been written to acknowledge the new momentum in Liberty County. The strategic teamwork framed by county, city, business, civic and lay leaders was rewarded with the successful passing of our SPLOST referendum.

The cost of the much needed capital and road projects can now shift from the property owners to all who shop in Liberty County.
