Hello. Remember me? Some people call me Old Glory; others call me the Star Spangled Banner, but whatever they call me, I am your flag, the flag of the United States of America.
I've used Windows for years, along with a free alternative that I think could be useful for many. While I have heard much complaining about Windows, most do not know that alternatives exist.

B.R.A.G. coming to Hinesville: Little did I know when I started the Bike Ride Across Georgia in 1980, that it would still be going strong in 2007. This year's route will bring them to Bradwell Institute on next Friday. If you've never witnessed 1,600 people on bicycles, now is your chance. Just be kind and give them the right-of-way as they make their way into Hinesville to Bradwell. There will be plenty of festivities and food for everyone. This is the second time the bikers have been hosted by the city of Hinesville. The ...
How does a person transition from a life of regimented detail to one of flexible chaos? How does one stop living an ingrained way of life for 27 years and completely become the "anti-you"?

It is the strange fate of retiring British Prime Minister Tony Blair to be called a lackey for adhering to his own deep-felt foreign-policy vision.
There has been a lot of discussion on an event at a Boulder, Colo., high school on April 10.

In a recent speech, LCPC chairman Jim Thomas said the population of Liberty County could increase by as much as 32 to 50 percent by the year 2030.
Start this new year right by recycling your old phone books and the gazillion sales catalogs you received during the holiday season.
The way she was was a long way from what she became. I can't help thinking about how life veers so far away from the beginning of the journey and how the destination can vary drastically from where it all started.
For months now, I've heard complaints about the current state of the U.S. health-care system, but until recently, I had no specific reason to be dissatisfied. Then, I started my search for a new pediatrician for my daughter and "got a taste of some bad medicine."
The 2014 session of the Georgia State Legislature will begin Monday.
Dear Cameron: You have been in this world for a tad more than five years now. I think you would agree it has been a pretty good ride to this point. A lot of people love you and care deeply about you. When you are older, you will understand just how fortunate you are.
If you have not taken down your Christmas decorations yet, you are not alone. I like to stretch the Christmas season out as long as possible. I do not like the "undecorating" part, which is not nearly as fun as decorating. But there is one good thing about this time of year. You can join more than 100,000 other Georgians by "treecycling" your live Christmas tree.

The new year brings many things, including further budget discussions in Congress that could very drastically affect military life.
Recently, a co-worker who is fairly new to our staff here at the Courier made a comment that sent a wave of various emotions crashing over me.
Recently I've read some commentaries where people told about the moment they first realized there was no Santa Claus. I got to thinking about that, and I couldn't recall a specific moment when such realization came to me. It's kind of like I absorbed that wisdom during a progression of maturity. No single event did it.
When future social anthropologists examine the second decade of the 21st century, they probably are less likely to take note of Phil Robertson's critical remarks about gays than the fact so many paid attention to them.
This could be an important piece of information I am about to share. It depends on how much you care about the money being spent on our state's politicians. If you don't care and want to cop the "it doesn't make any difference" attitude, then I suggest you blow the dust off your dictionary and look up the word "apathy." Or go kiss a goat. Your choice.
It seems Republicans and Democrats alike can agree on something, if you believe the results of a new CNN/ORC International Poll which says two-thirds of Americans think the current Congress is the worst in their lifetime.
