Two young, promising lives were taken early this week. Tiffany York, 17, of Midway and Michael Roark, 20, of Fort Stewart died in what police are calling a double homicide.
Virtual support is a trend that is growing more and more popular in the military community. When spouses have questions, they no longer have to rely solely on their family readiness group for answers. Now, with Facebook pages and forums dedicated specifically to military spouse support, it's easy to get instantaneous feedback.
As Democrats and Republicans fall all over themselves trying to come up with ways not to raise payroll taxes on millions of Americans - all with an eye toward next fall's elections - there is another, more sinister proposal working its way through Congress.
In case you have been vacationing on the moon, you may have missed the news that the student-athletes from the University of Georgia, the oldest state-chartered university in the nation, located in Athens, the Classic City of the South, came up a wee bit short in attaining the football championship of the Southeastern Conference. That honor went to the young men of Louisiana State University, who, having observed them in post-game interviews, are destined to become either, you know, great orators or, you know, quantum physicists.
An International Atomic Energy Agency report says that Iran is a major nuclear threat. The IAEA shared satellite images, letters and diagrams with 35 nations to support its claim. Iran claims that its nuclear program is for peaceful energy use only. Can we believe Iran? Can we believe the IAEA?

For more than 235 years, we have depended on the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights as the foundation of our judicial system. This system is being eroded by courts that are now making their own laws and throwing out the laws passed by our elected officials. The latest trend in the courts is to follow Shariah, which is Islamic law, and international laws that have nothing to do with this country.
Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives need to reassess the plan they've come up with to raise $290 billion a year in more taxes to feed the never-satisfied appetite of the federal government.
Today, I ask for a moment of personal privilege. It was two years ago this week that I wrote about the Three Wise Men who have so greatly influenced my life: Roy Hodnett, a real estate magnate on Saint Simons Island; Dr. Raymond Cook, my college professor, now residing in Valdosta and John W. Jacobs Jr., a broadcast pioneer and philanthropist from Gainesville. All three are in their 90s or close to it. All three are a part of the Greatest Generation. All three are family men of faith. I could not have asked for better role models.
