The apostle Paul wrote, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 3:13,14).

There used to be a thing called "telephone etiquette" in our society. It seems no longer to exist.
The other day my son and I were out in the boat fishing near St. Catherines Sound. We had taken along some frozen shrimp I had caught in a net earlier this month, and since I didn't want them to spoil I decided I needed to get rid of them.
Question: Kim and Clyde are playing in a stroke play tournament. On the seventh hole, Kim tells Clyde that he is swinging too hard and that is the reason for his bad shots. Has Kim breached the rules of golf?

If most Georgians hope to ensure a future quality of life at least equal to that of the past, it is clear that government accountability must improve.
Dear Editor: I am writing as the parent of a special needs son, age 12, in (Richmond Hill) Middle School that has just been elected by his sixth grade classmates as "Homecoming Prince" during the recent festivities and football game on Oct. 13. I cannot tell you how moved my wife and I are that these children are as nurturing and supportive of Charlie Penn despite his obvious "differences." He is very interactive and affectionate, but as we all know from the recent coverage of bullying that has led to horrible sadness and loss in communities elsewhere, children are not ...
Dear Editor: The election on Nov. 2 is probably the most important one in recent memory and may be the most important since the founding of our country. The choice is between moving ahead with the Democratic Party's progressive agenda or returning to a constitutionally limited government as was intended by our Founding Fathers.
Three homes in the upscale Ford Plantation in Richmond Hill will be auctioned off at the end of this month.
Last week, we began talking about how obedience to God is a must. We looked at two Old Testament examples of this idea: the Israelites and the brazen serpent (Numbers 21) and the account of Naaman (2 Kings 5).
One Sunday, while sitting around the dinner table, my sister Louise and I began to tell "Daddy stories" - the ones that stretched back to the early days of his preaching life. Since I was born 12 years after he was "made a preacher," as our folks said back then, I could only contribute what he had told to me about those days, not what I had seen.
Right after my daughter's birth, I thought I never had enough time to get things done. I had a new baby, I'd just returned to work and I was adjusting to a lot of "firsts." While I enjoyed my precious, new little one and devoted as much time as I possibly could to my career, laundry stacked up, dishes went unwashed, tumbleweeds of dog hair and dust rolled lazily across the kitchen floor and a thin layer of dust coated nearly every surface in my house.
True power, our power, is in our diversity and difference. It is not in the illusive power we chase in money and things. It is not in what we call unity. We are already unified through breath.
Teachers in Bryan County schools go back to work Monday, and the students will only be a week behind them.
Human beings always have had conflict with one another. Conflict can sever once-good relationships that can go unresolved throughout one's lifetime.
MOULTRIE - Having been in the news business for many years, I have occasionally been asked what was the funniest or strangest story I've ever covered. Well, there have been a number of instances along the way that brought some chuckles, otherwise making my day.
Raise your hand if you like moving.
I am a heavy user of the English language. If it carried a usage fee or royalty, I always would be over-budget (according to my husband).
It's no news that Congress is unpopular. In fact, at times it seems like the only real novelty on Capitol Hill would be a jump in its approval rating. In June, a Gallup poll found members' standing with the American people at a historic low for a midterm-election year. Which might have been notable except, as The Washington Post pointed out, that "Congress's approval rating has reached historic lows at least 12...times since 2010."
Results from Tuesday's primary runoff races are in, but have not been certified.
You may have noticed a different looking ambulance running up and down the roads in Bryan County recently. Bryan County Emergency Services has two "brand new" remounted ambulances and three slightly used medium duty ambulances with a totally new look, BCES chief Freddy Howell said Friday. Thanks to a donation from Orafol, the reflective material and graphic design has enhanced the ambulances' visibility, especially at night. These ambulances were all purchased from allocated and voted on SPLOST dollars and are brand new inside and out. While BCES hopes that you only see the outside of the ambulance, if you do ...

I suppose everyone has their take on the American Dream. For me, it's like standing outside and looking in. I don't know exactly how to frame my concept of the phrase. I would say that most of us natural born citizens would not know. Rightly so; we were born into it. The immigrant, of course, can compare. Further, I would wager, that most of us have never seen The Stature of Liberty standing out in New York Harbor, only once did I see it.
