The city of Hinesville recently observed Homeless and Hunger Awareness Week, which consisted of a town hall meeting, canned food drive and other events designed to shed light on the community's prevention programs and assist members of the population who are in need.

Midway, all governments must be accountable

Whether it is the federal government, state, county or city, the government is owned by the people. That's why the U.S. Constitution starts out, "We the People." Often, elected officials perform acts that do not benefit the taxpayers or make commitments that the people cannot afford or do not want to spend money on. After all, the money that government wastes is the taxpayers' money.

State must use funds as they were intended

Alan Brown's frustration with the way the state has handled a fund that's supposed to support driver education for the state's young people - a fund established under a law carrying the name of his dead son, who hydroplaned on a wet road eight years ago and hit a tree - certainly is understandable.

Husband's commitment is invaluable

After nearly three years as a military spouse, I've grown accustomed to life without family around. I came from a very close-knit family - you know, the kind where grandma phones over when she sees a car she doesn't recognize in the driveway from across the highway. That means it took me a while to get used to this more independent way of living.

Be grateful to our veterans

The United States military has been in the news a lot lately, from the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" to the Dec. 31 deadline for all troops to return home from the war in Iraq. Such politically charged topics can bring strong opinions to the forefront. But Friday will be the one day when everyone should put their opinions aside to honor the nation's veterans and active-duty service members and give them the respect that they deserve.

Ham hock mission thwarted by revolution

When I awoke Monday morning, it was as if I had been in one of those fogs I used to experience back in the 1960s. As I stood in front of the mirror with a tube of toothpaste in one hand and my toothbrush in the other, wondering why I came into the bathroom in the first place, it all started coming back.

With age comes appreciation for life

It may sound cliche, but I'm reminded more and more often these days that the older I get, the less I know. Conversely, however, I also have noticed that as my age climbs, so does my appreciation for the people and blessings in my life.
