Editor, Is there really a problem with climate change? Some scientists, who think they know more then God, believe there is.
Editor's note: Lawmakers and the administration announced they had receached a compromise that will forestall default, if it is approved in Congress today. This editorial was written before that announcement:
A few weeks ago, my husband underwent corrective eye surgery through Fort Stewart's Warfighter Refractive Eye Surgery Program. WRESP is a free program that provides eye surgery and aftercare to qualifying soldiers.
It's about time that the citizens of Midway replace the city council. It is one thing to pass laws, but another to use common sense.
I do love to cook - and unfortunately, I love to eat, too - but one of my least favorite household chores is cleaning up the kitchen after a meal. It has taken me close to 20 years, but I finally have convinced my husband that cleaning up after a meal is a joint responsibility.
Editor, I recently sent a rather caustic letter to Comcast in reference to what I feel are unforgiving rate increases in the time of our high unemployment and struggling economy. An extract of the letter was published in The Courier. I got it off my chest, didn't feel much better, and thought that was the end of the matter.
Editor, On Thursday morning, July 6, I rode in a funeral procession in Hinesville. On the trip from the Methodist Church to the cemetery I saw one of the most touching and heartwarming exhibitions of respect and Christian love that I've ever experienced. Every vehicle in the opposite traffic lane stopped or pulled off the road onto the shoulder while we passed, and many even turned their headlights on.

Editor, The key word in Edith Anderson's "In the pulpit" column on July 17 is "pastor." There are preachers and there are pastors. Rick Brown, who Edith wrote about, is a pastor.
Editor, Midway is a national insult to the rest of the people in Georgia.
As hard as I try, I just can't fathom $14.3 trillion. In fact, the only thing harder to try and fathom is probably that $14.3 trillion is not enough to cover our national debt.
There is a fallacious, salacious and slightly audacious rumor afloat that I can be a tad politically incorrect at times. Moi? Knock me over with a (organically-grown) goose feather.
Editor, What kind of world are we living in? What kind of world did you grow up in? I remember an old preacher once told me that God gave us 10 commandments and we have extracted 25,000,000 laws and ordinances from those 10 commandments.
The ongoing heat wave likely has many Coastal Georgia residents longing for the frigid winter months we couldn't wait to be rid of just a short time ago. But since we're not likely to receive a light dusting of snow any time soon, taking refuge in comfortable, air-conditioned spaces will have to do for now. Taking a dip in a nearby lake or swimming pool also is a great way to cool down and relieve the discomfort associated with heat indexes that reach 100 degrees or more.
Two years ago this week, 4.5 million of America's workers enjoyed a modest pay increase, as the federal minimum wage rose from $6.55 to $7.25 an hour. The increase was the final of a three-step boost enacted in 2007.
The year 2016 is over, but I want to start 2017 by looking back at some of the positive things from last year.
Donald Trump was supposed to take over the Republican Party, but the question going forward will be whether the Republican Party takes over him.
As we end 2016, we pause to consider how much have we emancipated?
Rick Downs needs your help now.
Dear Cameron Charles Yarbrough:
Editor: Thank you to Mrs. Patricia Fleming of the Kingdom Church of Christ, formerly the Jr. Church of Christ, for successful free Christmas dinners to ...
Happy New Year! 2017 offers tremendous promise and opportunities whatever resolutions you have made for this year.
