Editor, Those of you familiar with the Long County School System are aware of the student growth and financial struggles faced by our system for many years. We are a low-wealth system, ranked 171st out of 180 school systems. Our students and teachers presently occupy many classrooms built in 1951 or earlier. The hardships we have faced have been many, but with the dedication of previous and present boards, superintendents, administrators, teachers and staff, we have survived.

Yes, I know that I am, occasionally, prone to embellishment. But trust me when I say this is the law and the gospel: I have a longtime friend who only calls me when someone dies. Most times, I know the person, but sometimes I don't have a clue the person ever existed.

During the early part of the 20th century, many towns and cities across the nation were established and developed into mayor metropolises, due to the transportation system presented by the railroads. Just a few miles south of Savannah on the railroad, was the origin of what is today, the city of Richmond Hill. The railroad with majestic locomotive engines pulling long lines of cars, with horns blasting penetrating sounds to warn traffic at crossings, are all a part of it.

The older one gets and the more one tries to do, the more the years seem to fly by. From time to time we need to reflect on what is going on in our lives. Most will do this about school, jobs, finances, etc., and it is good to do those things. But let us not forget to look at our spiritual well being.

I know, who would have thought that Southern Baptists, of all people, would meet in Las Vegas. But we did, and evidently made an impression on a number of people. The writer simply stated, "Ten thousand Southern Baptists descended on Las Vegas earlier this week with a twenty dollar bill in one hand, and a copy of the Ten Commandments in the other. They didn't break either one ...

Less than a day apart, the state agency in charge of issuing pollution permits gave the green light to two proposed coal fired power plants in south Georgia.

Dear Editor: The past few days, we as a nation have seen controversy rise in the state of Arizona over its new law, requiring law enforcement agents to ask for identification papers of those they suspect to be illegal immigrants. This seems to be focused more towards illegal Mexican aliens, since Arizona does border Mexico, and while most of us think of Mexicans when we hear "illegal immigrants," we need to remember that illegal aliens come from all corners of the globe, be it Mexico, China and many other countries. But while we need to remember that this law is ...
