Editor, Midway is a national insult to the rest of the people in Georgia.
As hard as I try, I just can't fathom $14.3 trillion. In fact, the only thing harder to try and fathom is probably that $14.3 trillion is not enough to cover our national debt.
There is a fallacious, salacious and slightly audacious rumor afloat that I can be a tad politically incorrect at times. Moi? Knock me over with a (organically-grown) goose feather.
Editor, What kind of world are we living in? What kind of world did you grow up in? I remember an old preacher once told me that God gave us 10 commandments and we have extracted 25,000,000 laws and ordinances from those 10 commandments.
The ongoing heat wave likely has many Coastal Georgia residents longing for the frigid winter months we couldn't wait to be rid of just a short time ago. But since we're not likely to receive a light dusting of snow any time soon, taking refuge in comfortable, air-conditioned spaces will have to do for now. Taking a dip in a nearby lake or swimming pool also is a great way to cool down and relieve the discomfort associated with heat indexes that reach 100 degrees or more.
Two years ago this week, 4.5 million of America's workers enjoyed a modest pay increase, as the federal minimum wage rose from $6.55 to $7.25 an hour. The increase was the final of a three-step boost enacted in 2007.
Did you know that the moon is moving away from the earth at the rate of 3.5 centimeters each year?
We all hear them - the whispers exchanged between soldiers of all ranks, the anxious questioning from spouses too afraid to really consider the possibility.
In a nation rampant with worry about Casey Anthony's next move and the prospect of up to 20,000 NASA workers losing their jobs in Florida after the shuttle program ends, who would have thought that three little girls from the tiny city of Midway having their lemonade stand shut down would cause such a firestorm of anger? The girls, sisters Kasity Dixon and Skylar Roberts and their cousin, Tiffany Cassin, were ordered June 29 to pack up the stand, which they'd set up in front of their Midway home.
Legislation recently was introduced that would require educators guilty of CRCT cheating to return any bonuses or incentive pay that they received to their local school system. Not surprising, the proposed bill already has received support from educators. Students, parents, taxpayers and any Georgia resident concerned about the state of public education should back it as well.
Editor, Project Reach God's Anointed New Generation Inc. and Executive Director Lavonia LeCounte give credit to God for inspiring them to host the annual back-to-school rally. The attendance was around 1,200. A special thanks to all of the program participants, sponsors and booth participants.
Consider this: An estimated several trillion cigarette butts per year end up as litter around the world. That's billions and billions of cigarettes flicked, one at a time, on our sidewalks, roadways, beaches, nature trails, gardens and other public places every single day. In fact, cigarettes are the most littered item in the world.
Reversing long-standing policy, President Barack Obama now will send condolence letters to the families of U.S. military personnel who commit suicide in combat zones.
OK, everybody, are we clear now?
Dear Editor, For more than 236 years, we Americans have owed our freedoms to the men and women of the United States Army. Now, at long last, the American soldier will be honored with the National Museum of the U.S. Army near our nation's capital.
