Editor, We committed our infantry on two disastrous Mideast battlefields. You know, those places where Christian churches and Christians are not allowed. The result - many thousands dead and maybe a hundred thousand wounded. Some so horribly, their lives are destroyed. We wasted trillions of dollars. Well, maybe not. They say war is good for business.
I want you to hear this from me rather than from Donald Trump. I have been outed. I am a "bed-wetting liberal." No longer can I hide in the closet, among my bell-bottom pants and Nehru jackets that I am sure will be making a stylistic comeback one of these days.
Georgia is a state where we measure ourselves by how other people think of us.
I was hired Nov. 13, 1983, as chief deputy clerk of the Office of the Clerk of Courts of Liberty County, having served previously for almost three years as administrator of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit of Georgia's public-defender program and earlier for five years as a high-school mathematics educator. I readily realized how technology could be used in the office to automate redundant and laborious clerical tasks and to increase efficiency of work performed by office staff.

With the state's Solar Power Free Market Financing Act now law, Georgia is expected to have a banner year for new solar installations in 2015. But after that, the future begins to look murky because of the looming expiration of the federal investment-tax credit for solar energy.
Blessed are we, the peacemakers. Ours is a lonely lot. I had hoped I could cut back on pacifying petulant poops and spend more time on my latest passion - learning to play the flugelhorn. Alas, it is not to be. My skills as a peacemaker are once again required. And wouldn't you know it? I had just mastered the aria "Lascia ch'io pianga" from Handel's opera "Rinaldo." Rats.
As the self-proclaimed Islamic State, also known by the acronym ISIL, continues to grow and advance in the Middle East and even in our homeland, it is clear that we are not doing enough to eliminate these radical Islamic terrorists.
My sister and I stood in the charred remains of a life that once was and said not a word. What was there to say? Finally, I spoke.
Editor, Regarding the Confederate battle flag, Tom Crawford gets it mostly wrong in his opinion piece in the Coastal Courier of July 15.
One of the most important statutory jobs that the clerk of superior court has is custodianship of the county's jury lists. Ultimately, the clerk is charged by law with protecting and preserving grand- and trial-jury lists so that no one can alter them or do anything to them that would give anyone an unfair advantage during jury selection for civil or criminal cases.
