Dream big, America. Happy July 4

Evidently, computers here to stay

MOULTRIE - So this guy came up to me and unloaded on me about computers. For a moment, I didn't know how to respond. I didn't invent computers nor had I stolen his.

The A-10 Warthog is well worth saving

Savannah, my hometown, is also home to the 1st Ranger Battalion. I have many young friends here who are Rangers with multiple tours in Afghanistan and Iraq.

On "Sugar, Sugar," and bathing suits

One of my favorite songs of all time is the 1969 hit "Sugar, Sugar" by the Archies. The song rose to # 1 on the billboard hot 100 list – knocking off the Rolling Stones from the top of the chart – and stayed there for four weeks. Not bad for Saturday morning cartoon characters that never performed a live tour…because they were a cartoon band.

Retired general hopeful for Iraq

In my home hangs a photograph of a rather large and deep hole on the side of an asphalt road. It is the aftermath of an improvised explosive device - or, in more simple terms, a homemade bomb - that went off just as the Humvee in which I was riding passed over it.

Reasons for ‘The Season’

As I speak to and email friends, family and business contacts back in England at this time of year, I am reminded that the land of my birth is in the midst of what is still thought of as "The Social Season" or simply "The Season."

Bryan County Emergency Services wishes you a safe July 4

The sounds of summer, July 4th, Independence Day - children jumping into pools, burgers sizzling on the grill and fireworks lighting up the darkness as communities celebrate. Sadly, all too often these happy sounds have to compete with emergency sirens or are replaced with the noisy hustle of a local emergency room.

State needs power to fix problems

What's a state to do when the federal surface transportation program heads toward its Sept. 1 expiration date with little promise of a new transportation bill, and the Federal Highway Trust Fund's expenditures outpace tax receipts about $1.25 billion a month?

Understanding stormwater pollution

Understanding stormwater pollution actually is quite simple. When it rains, it pours, and when it pours, the storm-water process is set in motion.

A recent Gallup poll which asked 1,027 adult Americans how much confidence they had in 17 of the country's institutions may show what most folks already know.

Memories and mama's soul food

Mama used to fry biscuits. If you had known Mama, that wouldn't surprise you, because she fried every food possible. In the course of her life, I knew her to fry green beans, corn, grits and cornmeal mush.

Learn to love little things

I wish toddler enthusiasm was infectious. I love seeing my 2-year-old daughter happy about anything and, to an extent, her elation at simple things does wear off on me. However, it would be nice if I could get as excited about anything in life - anything at all - as Reese does about blowing bubbles. Or sitting in a wading pool in the backyard. Or getting a taste of apple juice that hasn't been cut with water to reduce the sugar content.

Oh where is the delete button in life?

I was on my computer the other day - just as I am every day of my life - and I tried to save a project I was working on, but it would not save.

MOULTRIE - I recently tried to make a phone call to a company to address an issue relative to my profession. As I would expect, I got a recording. This is the world we live in today.

Nostalgia sells; he's not buying

Have you noticed how "nostalgia" sells? This hit me like an antique butter churn the other day as I was watching television, and so many of the commercials have incorporated "old rock" music into their marketing spiels. And we can say, "Yes I remember that one!" We might even say, "Hey, that was our song!"
