Editor, I'm a retired combat veteran and member of the Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission, and I'm announcing my intent to run for the District 2 seat on the Hinesville City Council.
Thank you, Liberty County and surrounding areas. Project Reach G.A.N.G. Inc. and its executive director, Lavonia LeCounte, give all credit to God for inspiring them to host this outstanding event. The attendance at this year's Back to School Rally was 1,500-plus.
Editor, We committed our infantry on two disastrous Mideast battlefields. You know, those places where Christian churches and Christians are not allowed. The result - many thousands dead and maybe a hundred thousand wounded. Some so horribly, their lives are destroyed. We wasted trillions of dollars. Well, maybe not. They say war is good for business.
I want you to hear this from me rather than from Donald Trump. I have been outed. I am a "bed-wetting liberal." No longer can I hide in the closet, among my bell-bottom pants and Nehru jackets that I am sure will be making a stylistic comeback one of these days.
Georgia is a state where we measure ourselves by how other people think of us.
I was hired Nov. 13, 1983, as chief deputy clerk of the Office of the Clerk of Courts of Liberty County, having served previously for almost three years as administrator of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit of Georgia's public-defender program and earlier for five years as a high-school mathematics educator. I readily realized how technology could be used in the office to automate redundant and laborious clerical tasks and to increase efficiency of work performed by office staff.
My husband is like a relentless teenager. When he wants something, he persists until it's easier for me to say "yes" just to get him out of my hair.
Editor, In March, I wrote in to express my horror at the prospect of the Riceboro mayor and City Council voting themselves healthy raises (more than double the current pay). This statement would only become fact if we choose to elect the same slate of officials in November.
Editor, I am really tired of all of the "political correctness," especially concerning the Confederate battle flag.
Usually, when we picture streams, we are thinking more of a pastoral landscape.
With the legalization of fireworks this year, Georgia residents had a blast over the Fourth of July weekend - literally.
With the state's Solar Power Free Market Financing Act now law, Georgia is expected to have a banner year for new solar installations in 2015. But after that, the future begins to look murky because of the looming expiration of the federal investment-tax credit for solar energy.
Blessed are we, the peacemakers. Ours is a lonely lot. I had hoped I could cut back on pacifying petulant poops and spend more time on my latest passion - learning to play the flugelhorn. Alas, it is not to be. My skills as a peacemaker are once again required. And wouldn't you know it? I had just mastered the aria "Lascia ch'io pianga" from Handel's opera "Rinaldo." Rats.
As the self-proclaimed Islamic State, also known by the acronym ISIL, continues to grow and advance in the Middle East and even in our homeland, it is clear that we are not doing enough to eliminate these radical Islamic terrorists.
My sister and I stood in the charred remains of a life that once was and said not a word. What was there to say? Finally, I spoke.
November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, and I encourage everyone to increase their understanding and awareness of care at the end of life.
From one of my favorite cities, Savannah, comes the sad news that Pinkie Master's Lounge will close at the end of the year.
