Household tips to improve water quality

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.

Some high praise for Comcast response

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.

City shows its respect

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.

National debt has to be bridled

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.

Being politically correct is harder than it looks

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.

How woud Sheriff Taylor handle it?

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.

Weather too hot to handle

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.
