Who is policing the police?

We expect the police to obey the laws we hire them to enforce. Yet, every day, some violate these same laws, claiming the right to do so just because they are wearing a badge. The courts know the laws are being broken by law enforcement officers, but they turn their back to what is transpiring. The politicians know the laws are being broken, yet they allow those officers to continue doing whatever they please. Why? Money!

Georgian views Obama bomb

"Democratic candidates must treat Sen. [Barack] Obama just like any other candidate. They must not treat him differently because he is an African American."

Democrats and the drug scam

Democrats hate that Republicans are willing, on the issue of embryonic stem-cell research, to let their straitened moral views supposedly stand in the way of medical progress. But Democrats have their own ethical problem with medical progress - based on their moral qualms about the profit motive.

Birth of a changing America

The child was about to become a Mexican national. Yet, because of an illegal action by the child's mother, the child was born an American citizen. How did this happen? The child's mother illegally crossed the border from Mexico into the United States. She had her child on American soil. This woman waited at the boarder until she was ready to deliver and then crossed over. According to the Constitution, the child automatically becomes an American citizen.

Stormwater runoff is good rain gone bad

I love a good rainstorm - I always have. My mother used to check the weather forecast for thunderstorms because I was fascinated by them and wanted to watch them outside. However, it's not really a good idea to sit outside during a thunderstorm.

Be flexible with child' milestones

My 2-year-old is a chatterbox. I have no idea where she gets it from. (I'm being sarcastic, of course; it's obviously a trait passed down directly from me.)

Once upon a blood moon in Georgia

Not a single person in my breakfast club has mentioned the "blood moon." And that includes me, until now. I wasn't really sure what it was even though my emails from some preacher have hammered me recently with a "better beware" kind of verbiage.

Midway needs better fire-protection deal

It's good when the fire department is quiet, but the Midway Fire Department is the busiest department outside of Hinesville. The Midway volunteers do an excellent job with a quick response time.

It also supports other fire departments when called upon for assistance.

Tales, myths evolve; legends live on
