Dear Editor, For more than 236 years, we Americans have owed our freedoms to the men and women of the United States Army. Now, at long last, the American soldier will be honored with the National Museum of the U.S. Army near our nation's capital.
Georgians have needed some good news on the education front lately. After weeks of almost nonstop scandal, controversy and bleak statistics, nobody could be blamed for thinking the state of teaching and learning was spiraling toward rock bottom.
"I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on Aug. 3 if we haven't resolved this issue (raising the debt ceiling). Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it," President Barack Obama said during a recent CBS interview.
You would think designing a license tag would be relatively simple, wouldn't you? Not in Georgia.
Editor, This letter is in response to a story published July 13 titled "Army spouse criticizes care at Winn."
Editor: The air conditioning must not be working in Washington, D.C. At least, not in the halls of Congress or the White House.
I've been having flashbacks lately. And no, I didn't use LSD when I was in college.
It's magic! This week, with your help, First Presbyterian Christian Academy will turn donated CDs and DVDs into useful educational tools for students. On Tuesday, FPCA will collect used CDs and DVDs - you know, those things that replaced cassettes and VCR tapes and now are sitting around collecting dust in your cabinets and entertainment centers.
Buying a house is a lot like joining the military. You sign the paper and you're in, whether you like it or not.
Editor, Your July 6 front page story was a very sad commentary of the times in which we live. The headline, "Lemonade stand operation goes sour," reflects much more than just the lack of judgment of the officers involved in this incident. In my opinion, those officers should have allowed the girls to continue to sell their lemonade unless the officers had been instructed by their superiors to do what they did. If they were instructed to take action, then they simply were following orders and rightly so. However, if they had not received any complaints and had not been ...
Editor, In response to the news article about the Midway police shutting down the girls' lemonade stand, I'm saddened and offended that we choose this story as front page news! Why is this breaking news? First, this is not news, and second, it is the law!
Editor, I was absolutely astounded to learn the Midway Police Department felt it necessary to enforce an ordinance by shutting down a girl's lemonade stand on private property because she didn't have the proper permits.
The ongoing heat wave likely has many Coastal Georgia residents longing for the frigid winter months we couldn't wait to be rid of just a short time ago. But since we're not likely to receive a light dusting of snow any time soon, taking refuge in comfortable, air-conditioned spaces will have to do for now. Taking a dip in a nearby lake or swimming pool also is a great way to cool down and relieve the discomfort associated with heat indexes that soar past 100 degrees.
It's summertime and the same topic that has reared its ugly head in past hot seasons - the shameful condition of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway - is, like clockwork, surfacing again. In plain speak, the waterway is dangerously too shallow in some areas, yet the federal government continues to refuse to do anything about it.
In the months before we married, I sought to show Tink the Southern mountains of my raising.
His "America First, America First, America First" inaugural address is seen by many as divisive, particularly those who are miserable that Donald Trump is actually ...
Varoom! Putt! Putt! Putt! Varoom! Putt! Putt! Varoom! Varoom!
Editor: The Pro Life march in DC on Friday did nothing to advance its cause. I have listened to many of the speeches and scanned ...
Editor: Contrary to what a recent letter to the editor said, Congressman Buddy Carter is the representative we need in the First District of Georgia.
More than a century ago, New York Surrogate Judge Gideon J. Tucker handed down a legal decision that included this observation of state lawmakers: "No ...
