Thanks to Hinesville for assistance in time of family crisis

Editor, This is a thank-you note to the residents and officials of your wonderful town of Hinesville.

Sequestration could have catastrophic effects on Hinesville, local community

On Jan. 2, 2013, our city may experience an event that will have negative economic impacts on the community for years to come. Other communities with military installations will experience the same or similar negative impacts because of sequestration. Sequestration is a term that generally means seizure. In this case, though, it means additional budget cuts in the federal budget for the next 10 years. According to Sen. Saxby Chambliss, who recently participated in a news conference at MidCoast Regional Airport near Fort Stewart, our city and surrounding areas could see the immediate loss of approximately 7,000 jobs. The ...

Program links needy to potential helpers

Most people fall into one of two categories: people who need help but don't know how to ask and people who want to help but don't know how. The people who don't fit into either of these categories fall into a whole different category for self-centered people with no compassion, so I just won't go there.
