The Woman Who Shares My Name instructed me that this week's column was to be about positive things. She says she is tired of bad news and thought you felt the same way. "Surely, you can find some positive things to write about," she said, "and temporarily take people's minds off all the terrible things going on in the world. I think your readers would appreciate that."

Most mornings, I spend about five minutes pulling my freshly washed hair into a ponytail. It's easy, it's efficient, and, I like to tell myself, it's even chic. When I know I'll be meeting important people or attending special events, however (like, say, the United Way annual campaign kick-off party or a chamber of commerce breakfast), I break out the products and utensils and spend an extra 20 minutes or so coaxing my locks into what I hope is a more professional-looking style.

A Richmond Hill Police Department officer was patrolling Highway 144 near the Fish Hatchery shortly after midnight Aug. 13 when he spotted "a sedan travelling in front of my vehicle having difficulty maintaining its lane," a report said. "The vehicle was observed moving from the right edge of its lane to the left edge. It continued this manner of driving continuously. Based on my training and experience with subjects driving while intoxicated, swerving within a lane is a cue for a driver operating a vehicle while intoxicated."

Editor, I would like to preface my comments with the statement that Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield is a vital and virtually irreplaceable national strategic asset. If it is significantly reduced or closed, the loss would be a loss to the nation as a whole. There are very few places in the country like Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield, where the transportation and training assets readily are available for immediate deployment to virtually anywhere in the world.
