Put college in students' REACH

In a week highlighting more disappointing actions among so-called leaders at the national and state level, in a climate where good corporate citizens often are demonized, a shining beacon was celebrated June 11 at the Georgia Governor's Mansion: the REACH scholarship program.

Commissioner wants all-stars to play

Editor, I wholeheartedly disagree with the Liberty County Recreation Department board's decision to cancel the Mite Boys all-star games. The foolishness perpetrated by the coaches was unfortunate, but the board should have taken a position that would have allowed the children to play ball.

A story of friends, strangers, baseball

This is a story about heroes - good people doing good things. The cast of characters in this performance shares one thing in common: They are strangers to one another. They will meet for the first time via this column. That is what makes this such a good story.

Deal right to start harbor project

Georgia has its place on more than its share of "Top 10" lists - everything from World's Busiest Airport to among the world's top producers of peanuts and peaches. It also is on the country's "Top 5 List" for a distinction that few realize, especially those who live in our part of the state. That is, Savannah is the country's fourth-busiest port, and second only to the Port of New York (including NYC and New Jersey) on the East Coast. More than 2.9 million containers moved through Savannah last year as imports or exports.

Congress needs to remember its job

I've noticed a recurring question as I talk to people about Congress. What can be done, they wonder, to get Congress back on track? Is our national legislature capable of serious policy making?

Thought-provoking ER experience

Since she started day care six weeks ago, my little girl hasn't had an easy go of it. Having stayed at home with one parent or another the entire first year of her life, Reese's immune system hasn't built up much resistance, and she seems to pick up every bug, virus, flu and cold within a 5-mile radius.

Recognizing good neighbors

Good neighbors come in many shapes, sizes and forms. However, they are similar in these ways: they care about their community and their neighbors, and they take pride in their home and yards and in their neighborhoods and in their community.
