Turn old CDs, DVDs into educational tools

It's magic! This week, with your help, First Presbyterian Christian Academy will turn donated CDs and DVDs into useful educational tools for students. On Tuesday, FPCA will collect used CDs and DVDs - you know, those things that replaced cassettes and VCR tapes and now are sitting around collecting dust in your cabinets and entertainment centers.

Lemonade stand shutdown reflects bigger problem

Editor, Your July 6 front page story was a very sad commentary of the times in which we live. The headline, "Lemonade stand operation goes sour," reflects much more than just the lack of judgment of the officers involved in this incident. In my opinion, those officers should have allowed the girls to continue to sell their lemonade unless the officers had been instructed by their superiors to do what they did. If they were instructed to take action, then they simply were following orders and rightly so. However, if they had not received any complaints and had not been ...

Don't blame Midway PD for enforcing law

Editor, In response to the news article about the Midway police shutting down the girls' lemonade stand, I'm saddened and offended that we choose this story as front page news! Why is this breaking news? First, this is not news, and second, it is the law!

Midway PD too concerned with being politically correct

Editor, I was absolutely astounded to learn the Midway Police Department felt it necessary to enforce an ordinance by shutting down a girl's lemonade stand on private property because she didn't have the proper permits.

Getting too hot to handle

The ongoing heat wave likely has many Coastal Georgia residents longing for the frigid winter months we couldn't wait to be rid of just a short time ago. But since we're not likely to receive a light dusting of snow any time soon, taking refuge in comfortable, air-conditioned spaces will have to do for now. Taking a dip in a nearby lake or swimming pool also is a great way to cool down and relieve the discomfort associated with heat indexes that soar past 100 degrees.

Waterway repair is regional issue

It's summertime and the same topic that has reared its ugly head in past hot seasons - the shameful condition of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway - is, like clockwork, surfacing again. In plain speak, the waterway is dangerously too shallow in some areas, yet the federal government continues to refuse to do anything about it.

Justice system begging for overhaul

Not guilty! This was the jury decision that took most people by surprise in the Casey Anthony murder trial. Although, in my opinion, the evidence seemed to point to Ms. Anthony as the perpetrator of the hideous murder of little Caylee, the jury found her not guilty.

Hard times don't make state less inviting

As most Georgians know all too well, the Great Recession that sapped the nation's economy was especially harsh here. The state's fiscal house sustained even more damage than in most other states, with deep and sometimes devastating cuts in state budgets and huge private sector losses.

Gay curriculum in schools?

The phone rang the other day and on the other end of the line was Gay Blade, the world's flaming liberal. Gay spends a lot of time trying to raise my sensitivity toward liberal issues. So far, Gay has not had a lot of luck.

School's out; still on legislators' minds

While school may be out for students and teachers, it does not mean education is not on the mind of Georgia's Legislature.

No good spin on jobs report

Washington officials are famous for forecasting sunny skies when they can look through a window and clearly see it's raining. But even highly-degreed spin doctors inside the beltway will have a hard time making the June jobless report look anything but anemic.
