One day over lunch, a friend and I were talking about the murderous felons we know as Tink quietly listened.
Editor, I spent a couple of days this week riding around Liberty County and must say I am totally at ease. I saw many sights: responding fire trucks, Animal Control at work, Department of Inspections at construction sites, empty city buses running, bustling activity in all government buildings, trash pick-up happening, and all other government functions seemed to be hitting on all eight cylinders. I even noticed that the sheriff had added expensive SUVs to his fleet rather than the stranded and less-costly police patrol cars. And to top it all, the city fathers made another recent trip to St ...
September is full of Keep Liberty Beautiful events that I hope you will want to be involved in.
Congress made Labor Day a federal holiday in 1894 to honor the contributions workers make every day to our nation's strength, prosperity and well-being. But in 2015, on a day when we will celebrate the value of work, it's distressing that two of our nation's best policy tools for encouraging and rewarding work are in jeopardy: the federal Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit.

In each of the 18 meetings, we received input from residents about how they would like to see their parts of Liberty County grow in the future.
In 1983, the Georgia General Assembly enacted legislation creating a magistrate court in every county. Formerly, the magistrate court was called "the office of the justice of the peace" or, alternatively, the "justice court."
It is time again for our quarterly Recycle It! fairs. The quarterly Recycle It! Fairs are scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, at three locations: the Liberty County Health Department in Flemington, Walthourville City Hall and the Midway Police Department. Three locations means that it is easier than ever for you to drop off these types of recycling items.
For some reason, Southerners - more than people in any other region - love nicknames. It's really a show of affection when we care enough to bestow a nickname rather than call a person by his Christian name.
The campaigning for next year's elections is starting to draw more attention, and with it comes a focus on voters and their mood. Which is all well and good, but it leaves out of the equation one large bloc of citizens: people who are eligible to vote, but don't.
In recent years, there has been a marked increase in public awareness of childhood apraxia of speech. Despite this awareness, this neuromotor condition remains poorly understood by many parents, teachers and even some pediatricians.
In 2016, Georgia voters will have the opportunity to vote on a constitutional amendment creating an Opportunity School District (OSD), which would step in and place chronically underperforming public schools under state control.
Unless you are one of the intrepid public servants we keep sending back to the Gold Dome to get you out of our hair, or a lizard-loafered lobbyist lurking around the Capitol with free lunch coupons or members of the news media with coffee stains on their shirts and cynicism in their hearts, the name Brian Robinson may be unfamiliar to you.
