Growing environmental concern noted

Since transplanting myself from the over-developed and polluted town of Cleveland, Ohio to the forested and marsh-lined county of Liberty, I have begun to change my attitude regarding the environment.

So many questions but so few answers

DO YOU EVER WONDER? Why are automobiles geared to go 120 mph when speed limits nationwide are 70? Why is it OK for a business to have barbed wire around the top of their fences, but it's against the law for homeowners? Why did automanufacturers do away with the dimmer switch on the floorboard? What do those large question marks on our historic site signs mean? When will Frank Cochran Drive be completed? Why have the good sitcoms on TV been replaced by violence, car chases, nudity, foul language and Hollywood scandals? Why do people find it pleasurable to ...

Recycling worth the effort

Well, don't you feel lighter, Liberty County? I wish it was as easy to "reduce" personally as it is to "reduce" as a community.

France: Victim of big government

France has often, for better or worse, led the way during its history: in state-building, when Louis XIV created the modern French monarchy; in proto-totalitarian politics, with its revolution of 1789; in mass-mobilized warfare, in the wake of the revolution. Now, France is being reduced to a sad object lesson, a warning of the deadening effects of big government economics.

Carter out of line with Bush remark

Former President Jimmy Carter recently said the Bush administration was "the worst in history" in international relations. Well, I will give President Carter some credence in knowing about a presidential administration being the worst. We can honestly say his administration was clearly the worst one during the past 100 years.

Slowing growth - or not

Georgia is the nation's sixth fastest growing state on a percentage basis and the fourth fastest growing on a numeric basis. The Peach State population is spiraling upward at an annual rate of nearly 15 percent per year. Close to 40 counties - mostly in north Georgia - exceed the 15 percent growth rate.

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).

Clinton, Obama pander to feminists

The front-runners in the Democratic presidential race have discovered the power of an idea whose time has passed - socialism in women's wages. Its power is in pandering to feminist voters, and its time passed because it never made any sense even when it was a bright, shiny new bad idea some 30 years ago.

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!"
