Americans must work for greater good

Editor, "Greater Good" is a point or ideology that has been defined, perceived and twisted. So what does this mean? I wonder if it's even fair to apply this concept because, at the end of the day, the definition is construed. Man is still making that determination.

Choose your way to make a difference

This month, more than 500 local volunteers have made a positive difference for our local waterways by participating in the Statewide Rivers Alive waterway cleanups in Georgia.

Several more groups have cleanups scheduled in the next three weeks. Rivers Alive is a statewide effort to preserve and protect our waterways in Georgia.

Tax is a tax, whether SPLOST, LOST or property tax

Editor, I just read Liberty County Administrator Joey Brown's column. Maybe, if government wasn't so secretive, Liberty County citizens would be able to get all of the proper information that Mr. Brown has at his fingertips.
