Letter to the editor

Editor, I was in the post office in Hinesville on May 16, and there was a very lovely lady standing in line before me. The line was very long and she insisted I go in front of her. I said no and thanked her but she stepped behind me anyway. (I use a walker and am unable to walk without one).

Politics should be about solutions

Throughout the years, I've met with a lot of high-school and college students, and there's one question they come up with time after time: What, they want to know, is politics really about?

Thank you, W, you got one right

There are many things I don't like about Pres. George W. Bush, actually there are many things I don't like about him and many other politicians - Republican and Democrat. But I read something the other day that for once made me shout, "You go, boy!"

Chambliss prescient or pandering?

If they gave politicians awards for swimming against the national tide, Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss would win a gold medal.

Jail term doesn't prove guilt

In my darker dreams, I picture being handcuffed and stuffed into the back of a police car, while yelling, "It wasn't me. It was the one-armed man!

Home, mission on troops' minds

Like so many of the soldiers I lead, I miss family and friends at home in the Coastal Empire and beyond. There is not a second that goes by that I don't think about the families and the community we left behind. Our reunion will be sweet for sure, but for now we do our duty and focus on the mission at hand.

UGA is home of top college mascot

If I die anytime soon - and I have no plans to do so at the moment - please see that the first paragraph of my obituary reads, "He was past president of the University of Georgia National Alumni Association." You can save for later paragraphs the part about my being often mistaken for Brad Pitt and my uncanny ability to put commas where they don't belong.

Cool house with breezes, memories

"It's a funny thing." That's what Mama used to say when something baffled her. Like Mama, I prefer that things make sense. Otherwise, I'll ponder, figure, study and try to decipher that funny thing until it's somewhat sensible.

Another mom shares insights

I imagine, from time to time, you all get tired of reading about my adventures in toddler town and would like to hear from other parents. So, as you can imagine, I was thrilled when Hinesville Public Relations Manager Krystal Britton Hart took me up on my offer to guest write this week's column. Krystal has two daughters herself, one of whom is the same age as my daughter, Reese. I enjoy comparing notes and talking with her, and I'm sure our readers will be as interested in hearing what she has to say as I am. Enjoy!
