For both Georgia and the United States as a whole, the election of Donald Trump as president is going to mean some major changes in our lives.
Editor, Well, the rollercoaster ride is over and many in this country were overwhelmed by the result. This is especially true of the pollsters, who got it wrong; and the liberal media, who tried everything to elect Hillary Clinton. The voters of America got it right when they elected Donald Trump the 45th President of the United States.
We are celebrating recycling this week at Keep Liberty Beautiful. America Recycles Day is Tuesday. It is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and to buy recycled products.
We ask much of our men and women in uniform, and they ask little in return. As a nation, we are ultimately responsible for ensuring whatever effects veterans suffer in the mission of defending our nation will be treated here at home. So on this Veterans Day, the question we must ask ourselves is: If veterans fought for our freedom, shouldn't we fight for theirs?
When the good folks of Lennox Valley began to stir on Friday morning, many wondered if the events of Thursday evening had been a dream. Let's face it – most of the previous six months seemed like a nightmare, so why should election night have been any different?
Tuesday is Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day! I realize that many of you do not share my enthusiasm nor have any idea what GIS is or why it deserves to have an entire day dedicated to it.
There's a moral to this story.
Most of us have been blessed with an abundance of things, maybe even an excess of material goods. I know I am guilty.
Less than one-third of Americans view elected officials as "honest," and a lack of transparency lies at the core of this distrust.
Could this really be happening in our Valley?

Among the important choices voters must decide now through Nov. 8 is one that impacts whether local communities lose control of the education decision-making processes for their children.
One of the dangers of providing you with my opinions each week - besides not having a clue where to put commas - is that it is easy to lose touch with reality and start acting like all the media pundits who think they are so smart that their IQs should be measured with a yardstick. My momma didn't raise me like that.
Editor: Every time the Democrats do something, it costs the American people money. Locally, SPLOST is a good example. But when Washington does something, it really costs us. The best example is Obamacare. Next year, the rates are going up from 25 to 116 percent. Obama said in a recent speech, "You are getting better quality, even though you don't know that Obamacare is doing it." I'm not too sure about the better-quality part.
Editor: The party of Lincoln, Eisenhower and Reagan is dead. It has been kidnapped by a lunatic known to his delusional supporters and some others as The Donald. I value a two party system, and believe it or not, this Democrat is saddened to see the GOP's total demise.
The year 2016 is over, but I want to start 2017 by looking back at some of the positive things from last year.
Donald Trump was supposed to take over the Republican Party, but the question going forward will be whether the Republican Party takes over him.
As we end 2016, we pause to consider how much have we emancipated?
Rick Downs needs your help now.
