This is a bit weird. I find myself in the position of having to defend politicians. Well, not all of them, just the good ones.
As Republicans and Democrats prepare for their national nominating conventions next month, it's clear that this has become one of the strangest - and most entertaining - presidential campaigns since at least 1912.
Cigarette litter is ugly but, more than that, it is nasty and unhealthy.
With the Fourth of July quickly approaching, the Hinesville Fire Department wants to remind the public that while fireworks can be fun, they can also be quite dangerous. Be sure to follow these important safety measures:
The ladies in Caroline's Beauty Salon were on pins and needles after hearing Raymond Cooper, host of the daily radio talk show, "Renderings with Raymond," utter the chilling words, "I have the biggest news flash in Lennox Valley history," just after Vera Penrod announced that Elbert Lee Jones and Marvin Walsh were scurrying into the radio station across the street.
On Friday, June 10, I had the distinct honor of attending the public memorial service for boxing legend Muhammad Ali. I was accompanied by life long friends Quinton Lewis, Jackie Scott and Marc Anderson. The trip began on a whim, and somewhat a response to a dare. Ali died June 3, and the following day, after attending the funeral of a family friend, I casually mentioned that once the funeral arrangements were made, that we should go. Accepting my dare, the guys said yes.
This may be the first time I've ever written these words, but here goes: Georgia could learn a lesson from Louisiana.
Behind the little house in which I spent a happy childhood - where I toted books from one room to another, where I knelt by my bed nightly to pray, where homemade biscuits buttered and sprinkled with sugar were a favorite treat - is a little shed that, to the outside world, is noted for its ugliness.
Maybe it's my fault. Maybe it's my fault to expect a superintendent to exhibit excellence. Maybe it's my fault to not only expect excellence, but to also require you to prove it. Maybe it's my fault that you confused accountability with bullying. Maybe it's my fault for thinking that having "F" schools for the first time in Liberty County School System history is not acceptable. Maybe it's my fault that I do not sit quietly and approve a budget without knowing the line items like everyone else does. Maybe it's my fault to ...
Editor, Now that Hillary Clinton is the presumptive presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, I thought that I would give the voters some reasons to vote for Hillary.
Hello, my name is Sara, and I am addicted to shopping. I make no apologies for this addiction - I mean hobby.
I've always said that gossip in Lennox Valley was born in one of three places: Maxine's weekly column called "Rumor Has It," Raymond Cooper's radio show, or Caroline's Beauty Salon.
During his first 18 months as a U.S. senator, David Perdue had not made much of a splash on the national scene. He was just another backbencher in a Senate dominated by bitter fights between party leaders.
I don't know how schoolteachers manage to do what they do, and do it as well as they do, given the obstacles tossed in their way by politicians, bureaucrats, special-interest groups, ideologues, social experimenters and assorted other navel-gazers - none of whom could carry their book bag. They sure don't do it for the financial reward. That, we save for semi-articulate professional athletes and Hollywood liberals who earn obscene amounts of money pretending to be someone else.
Now that the final election totals are in, let's look at a couple of Georgia's voting trends.
The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce recently chose George and Babs Holtzman to serve as the 2016 Christmas Parade Grand Marshall. Why, you might wonder?
Sometimes, it seems like we have forgotten what Thanksgiving is about. We should be thankful every day. Even the poorest of our poor is still ...
Editor: Many people think that because a columnist is syndicated, he knows what he is talking about. They don't. Such a column was in ...
As Liberty County transitions under President Elect Donald Trump's administration, I humbly request that all citizens respect the office of the president of the ...
Thanksgiving is here, and I thought I'd get a jump on the crowd by offering up some things for which I am thankful in ...
The election-night coverage of the 2016 vote began with images of the Clinton campaign team gathering in the Javits Center - under the symbolic glass ceiling ...
Dear Gov. Deal:
