Hospital is accredited

Wednesday's Coastal Courier included a letter to the editor that questioned Liberty Regional Medical Center's accreditation by the Joint Commission. The letter writer's source was a website published by the Partnership for Health and Accountability, www.gahospitalqualitycheck.org.

One life can remind us of what is important

This is an opportune time of year to take stock of our blessings. Actually, every day should be a time of thanksgiving, but it seems we are too busy being too busy to appreciate just how blessed we are.

A first step on the debt

Nancy Pelosi is remarkably consistent. During the election campaign, she attacked Republicans for proposals to tackle the nation's fiscal problems. After the election, she is attacking the co-chairmen of President Barack Obama's fiscal commission for the same offense.

Watch football, learn handy things

Well, here we are more than halfway through the 17-week NFL season and my husband's quest to school me in the ways of the gridiron has not produced favorable results. I like to think of myself as an opportunist, though, so I'll take the scraps of knowledge I have retained thanks to my football fanatic spouse's three-hour tutorials and put them to good use. Hey, I may not know the difference between a running back and a quarterback, but I have learned enough to avoid embarrassing myself - or so I'd like to think.

Lawmakers hear State of Courts Address

The Georgia Senate had a busy week. We held numerous committee meetings to review legislation and listen to testimony either opposing or supporting bills being considered.

Apparently, the substance - whatever it is - imparts this knowledge and experience within the first 30 seconds of being sworn into office.

Don't bother remaking an established image

A few years back, someone I knew ever so slightly died. Though I didn't know him well, I knew him to be mean, egoistical and quite a bully.

In the end, parents are usually right

Expand health care, not government

It's official: Indiana has given in and adopted ObamaCare's Medicaid expansion. Before jumping into the weeds of Indiana's Medicaid-expansion agreement with the Obama administration, it is important to realize the agreement still fails some basic principles of reform.

County imposing unnecessarily high taxes

Editor, I saw the movie "Selma" on Sunday night and was inspired anew by the courage and conviction shown by one man. His actions impacted a nation - actually, the world - for generations to come. I am no Martin Luther King Jr., that's for sure, but I hate seeing people placed under unnecessarily heavy burdens, particularly in this great country of ours.
