Rundown neighborhood needs people who care

Editor, Well, it looks like I have to be the Len Calderone of Hinesville. Recently, Liberty County - to include Hinesville - declared war on garbage, litter, trashy yards, cars in yards, yadda, yadda yadda.

Let's get radical for just a moment

I'm going to suggest something very radical. Let's establish a fixed date for Easter and leave it there. I would prefer the last Sunday in April or the first Sunday in May. Maybe even the second Sunday in May.

Midway mayor should be 'weak'

Editor, Like many of you, I read Len Calderone's "Midway Perspective" columns with interest. When I was on the city council, I would audio tape the city council meetings and have access to city documents, which I use to review his reported facts. I cannot always support his opinions, but his facts appear to be indisputable.

Spend money paving roads, not on land

On April 15, 2013, Midway Councilman Terry Doyle requested that the city attorney address his concerns about whether Midway Mayor Dr. Clemontine Washington could commit the city to spend $130,270 (over and above the amount of a project grant) to pave about one-third of a mile of Old Sunbury Trail without the approval of the city council. Doyle never received a response. Since the city council's responsibility is to oversee the mayor, the city attorney should have made a declaration.

Have you ever hit a shark on the nose?

I was just recently reading about people who "swim with the sharks." It seems there is some kind of thrill they get from this. I guess it's about an adrenaline rush. They get in a tank with maneaters, and sometimes they even touch them as they swim by.

Celebrate Easter for promise of hope

I remember all of the Easters of my life more clearly than any other holidays. Christmases blur together with only a few standing out in my memory, such as the one when it snowed all day, the year I lost my voice completely and the two times that I wasn't home - one working in Washington, D.C., and another in London.

Are you looking for some fun this week? Or are you feeling like doing some community good?

Don't question others careful choices

Deciding to have only one child was not an easy choice for my husband and me. We weighed the pros and cons, considered our careers and work demands, examined our finances, mapped out future plans, took our ages into account, set goals for ourselves and our daughter and thought long and hard about the options before us. Really, we did.

Get out and enjoy Georgia Cities Week

It's a great time to be a resident of Coastal Georgia. As Hinesville's mayor, this is my favorite part of the year. The people of this great city are out, enjoying the warm weather. Places in the city are buzzing with activity. The purpose of community is even more apparent. I'm even more excited for this week, April 20-26, when we'll celebrate the people, places and purpose of Hinesville during Georgia Cities Week.

I wish I had been there. In Jerusalem. With Jesus.

Independent commision's role questionable

Congress appointed an independent commission to travel the United States and hold meetings with active and retired soldiers and their spouses. The commission is designed to see what is important to our military and their families - even though there already is a proposed budget that outlines the cuts that will affect our military families.

Sign up to be an organ donor

Editor, Have you ever received a gift that stands out in your mind more than others? Last year, 829 people in Georgia received gifts that will always have a great impact on their lives. It was the greatest gift of all - the gift of life. Will you help others receive this great gift?
