Earlier in the week, the moon was supposed to be closer to earth than it has been in many years – just how much closer, I didn't research. And, of course, it was supposed to look much bigger than usual.
Secretary of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki probably had the Vietnam generation in mind last Wednesday when he spoke of the nation's broken covenant with those who have served us in the armed forces.

Editor, There are few things in life as unforgiving as a raging fire. I was reminded of this Thursday.
The mission of the United Way of the Coastal Empire is simple - to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities. It is a call to action, inspiring everyone to give, advocate, volunteer, and become a part of making our community a better place to live.
Editor, I wonder how many people ever think about the danger of nuclear power. We know the benefits because we take advantage of them every day. How many of us ever stop to think about the fact that we have a nuclear power plant very close to us? For some, it might be comforting to know that because of nuclear power, a vast amount of energy is at our fingertips, and that is true. No one has to point out to me the shortages we would incur if it were not for nuclear power.

Ches McCartney, known as the Goat Man, was born in Iowa in 1901. He ran away from his family's farm when he was 14. In New York, he married a Spanish knife-thrower 10 years his senior and joined her act, serving as her target. Just before dawn one day, the wife snuck away and left him. He married at least two more times. He had one son, Albert Gene, by his third wife, Sadie Smithhart, and possibly two to four other children.

Editor, I would like to publicly thank Capt. David Edwards of the Liberty County Sheriff's Office for his efforts with Operation Safe Prom at Liberty County High School.

In session for two days this week, the Georgia General Assembly completed the week on Wednesday, the 30th day of session. With 30 of 40 session days complete, legislators are closing in on the marathon and almost to the finish line of the 2011 session.
Day 29 (March 14): The Capitol was a sea of green today as we welcome the Grand Marshall and other members of the St. Patrick's Day committee from Savannah. At first glance it appeared that we were in for a long day with 23 bills on the calendar. However, one of the things that a legislator learns is that the number of bills does not necessarily dictate the length of a day as much as the subject of the bills.
