Will Bush be the last hawk standing?

WASHINGTON - This is the center of the storm in the debate over the Iraq War, George W. Bush's White House. The president is meeting in the Roosevelt Room with nine conservative journalists to discuss the war, and, as with a hurricane, the eye of the storm is unbelievably calm.

Topic: Response to article

To characterize our community leaders as apathetic is unfair. Perhaps the accuracy in your statement lies in the inability to generate support. You were correct in your quote that "there is no reason that the room should not have been packed." That is where the TRUE apathy exists: there are too many parents that don't care. Unfortunately, for every group of parents that show no interest in their children, a small group of helpless ones lie in the shadows. This is where our efforts need to be concentrated.

Good offices can breed Congressional success

If you pay attention to the news or watch C-SPAN, you've no doubt got a pretty good idea of what members of Congress do.

Concessions and then some...

Any elected official who proposes raising gas taxes or fees to fund transportation infrastructure needs in Georgia is probably not planning on re-election. Yet every policy-maker knows the state needs an innovative approach and deep pockets to plan for a future without mind-boggling traffic congestion.

Bush legacy will be defined by Supreme Court

Johnson is identified by Viet Nam, Nixon by Watergate, Carter by a lousy economy, Reagan by ending the Cold War, H. Bush by Desert Storm, and Clinton by Monica Lewinsky. So by what will George W. be identified?

Middle route to school integration

When it comes to race in America, the instinct of left and right is to be clear-cut - binary, even. On or off, up or down, yes or no. Black or white, so to speak.

I have emailed Jack Kingston two times now. I feel that I have been pushed to the side or "swept under the carpet.

Fairness Doctrine threatens our rights

Even while we are busy defending our Second Amendment rights against efforts to enhance the Brady Law, there is a movement afoot to restrict our First Amendment rights as well … a movement that can make the defense of our liberties much harder.

Once upon a blood moon in Georgia

Not a single person in my breakfast club has mentioned the "blood moon." And that includes me, until now. I wasn't really sure what it was even though my emails from some preacher have hammered me recently with a "better beware" kind of verbiage.

Johnson deserves district seat

Editor, Lately your newspaper has printed several letters stating that Buddy Carter is just like Jack Kingston. These claims are extreme exaggerations and pretty farfetched.

Midway needs better fire-protection deal

It's good when the fire department is quiet, but the Midway Fire Department is the busiest department outside of Hinesville. The Midway volunteers do an excellent job with a quick response time. Many residents are not aware of Midway's coverage area, but the Midway Fire Department covers Midway's 4 square miles and 40 square miles of unincorporated areas of Liberty County. It also supports other fire departments when called upon for assistance.

Tales, myths evolve; legends live on

Their histories, accurate and complete, are lost to time and buried with them and those who knew them. I wish I knew more because their stories would read like a page-turning novel.

Make healthy cooking, eating fun

I've always heard and read that it's a good idea to involve children in meal-preparation efforts, because they're more likely to eat dishes that they helped cook. That makes sense.

Hinesville needs own Fourth celebration

Editor, I saw an item in Friday's paper informing me about the fireworks at 9:30 p.m. at Cottrell Field on Fort Stewart. Having been raised here, I already knew that, but was surprised to see they were shooting off their fireworks at 9:30 p.m., instead of closer to July 5, if you catch my drift. As I reflected on years gone by, my blood began to boil.
