I checked my pocket this morning and the only change that I could count on was two dimes and three pennies. Forget looking in my wallet. All that I have there are two $1 bills and family photos.
Editor, I read with great interest Len Calderone's article in the Wednesday, May 18, edition of the Coastal Courier titled, "Stand proudly as an 'unhyphenated American.'" I pretty much agreed with everything he said until he ruined it all by blaming liberals for the creation of ethnic "hyphenism" (his word, not mine).
Editor, On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Hinesville Municipal Court Judge Gary Sinrich, who recently was honored by the placement of his portrait in the city courtroom, recognizing his 23 years of service to the public.

In Georgia, a convicted shoplifter hypothetically could receive a tougher sentence than someone convicted of killing a dog.
Tax reform - and in politics, that's at best a benefit-of-the-doubt term - apparently is dead for this year in Georgia. Before lawmakers take it up again, and they will, they would do well to pay attention to a new report recently disseminated by the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute (www.gbpi.org), a nonprofit, nonpartisan economic analysis think tank.
Editor, After attending a recent city meeting, I don't think the city of Ludowici has adopted a municipal code of ordinances for more than 27 years or longer.
Editor, I think it's a shame that the Liberty County Board of Education is getting ready to invest millions of dollars in a football stadium while our kids are out on teachers' furlough days.
If you live in Long, Tattnall or Liberty counties, you probably have seen one of my cousins. I live in rural Tattnall County, but I have cousins all over the southeastern United States.
