Dear Editor: My name is LaKeya King and I attend Richmond Hill High School. I'm currently in 12th grade and will graduate May 24. My family relocated to Richmond Hill due to my dad being an officer in the United States Army. We have lived here for seven years. While I have been here I notice how beautiful and peaceful it is living in this neighborhood. Richmond Hill has grown tremendously. ...
Certainly a major area of concern for motor truckers and the average American family is the high price of gas that is continuing to hamper our economy. Of particular concern to me is the increased cost of diesel fuel and its effects on the trucking industry. I believe this problem underscores our need to invest in a robust domestic fuels infrastructure, focusing on cellulosic biodiesel and other fuels.
I'm going to start off by noting I don't know who sent this email Thursday to reporter Jessica Holthaus. She doesn't know who it is either.
Dear Editor: In response to Ms. DeBry's column of April 19: I don't know many people who haven't used a "pie" chart to illustrate something. I'm still trying to figure out how Michelle Obama's use of one could have raised so much "ire." She has been in public service for years and I'll just bet she earned every penny that she has. All Democrats are not on welfare, I thought ...
My friend Elizabeth Johnson is a boat captain on Tybee Island. For a living she takes anglers 50 to 75 miles off the coast and tells them how to bait up and where to cast and how to reel in. She's the kind of person who goes at life like Earl Scruggs goes at banjo, which is full tilt boogie.
"Traditional gardening, landscaping and landscape maintenance practices are often driven by outdated aesthetic fashion and shortsighted economic interests, with little ethical consideration. As a result, our traditional practices are often quite harmful to our health and the environment in general." - from the EPA
There are vastly differing views on the changes made by the Jekyll Island Authority and Linger Longer Communities in a major development project reported and commented upon recently in the media. The so-called concession to keep the 'town center' project out of the Shore Protection Act jurisdiction is certainly welcome, but hardly magnanimous - nor evidently all that it first appeared to be.
Howdy All, Richmond Hill High School Soccer gets it!! I want to take this opportunity to share all of the wonderful things happening in Richmond Hill High School's Soccer program. As many of the local parents, recreation department organizers, TV and Print newsmen, and co-workers at RHHS and Bryan County Schools have come to know; Coach Wright (RHHS Boys) and myself (RHHS Girls) have worked very hard over the last four ...
Try this hot scoop for a piece of outright absurdity: Knowing she has no chance of winning the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton continues to run full speed ahead against Barack Obama for president.
Internet-savvy bank customers in Georgia can go online and check and balance their accounts from the comfort of their home, even at 2 in the morning. But let that same taxpayer be curious at 10 a.m. about how his taxes are being spent in Georgia, and he'd have a tough time finding out.
Editor: With regard to the proposed conference center, the reason for all the controversy is the change in scope and location – from a convention and aquatic center on Brisbon Road to a conference center and hotel at J.F. Gregory Park. The first public mention of a hotel was at a city council meeting where an artist's rendering was presented. A few days later at an Arts on the ...
In coffee shops, diners, and community meetings, much has been debated about the 2008 Georgia General Assembly session that concluded two week ago. Some have criticized, some have ballyhooed, some jumped for joy, while others registered indifference. The reality is that it was a successful session.
Dear Editor: [The following was sung on the occasion of decorating the graves of the Confederate dead at Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston, S.C., 1867.] Sleep sweetly in your humble graves, Sleep, martyrs of a fallen cause; Though yet no marble column craves The pilgrim here to pause. In seeds of laurel in the earth The blossom of your fame is blown, And somewhere, waiting for its ...
Well, this is my final column for the 5K training, because training time came and went – and so has the 5K.
In April of each year, in conjunction with the Georgia Municipal Association, the City of Pembroke participates in Georgia Cities Week.
There's a woman I'm looking for. Perhaps you know where she is. If you do, please help me find her again.
Editor,, I would like to take this opportunity to discuss something important.
I've noticed a recurring question as I talk to people about Congress. What can be done, they wonder, to get Congress back on track? Is our national legislature capable of serious policy making?
Since she started day care six weeks ago, my little girl hasn't had an easy go of it. Having stayed at home with one parent or another the entire first year of her life, Reese's immune system hasn't built up much resistance, and she seems to pick up every bug, virus, flu and cold within a 5-mile radius.
For some, July 8, 2010, was a momentous day in the state of Georgia - but not for a good reason.
Sixty-nine years ago last Thursday, Allied forces stormed the heavily fortified beaches of Normandy. Through their courage and sacrifice, they cut a foothold in Northern France and began a march that culminated in victory.
I have said it before, but let me repeat: I have no problem with charter schools. I did have a big problem with the ham-handed way last November's charter-school referendum was rammed through by proponents.
Identity theft continues to be a real problem in the United States - and our senior population is at extreme risk.
Georgia's citizens have been kept in the dark regarding two troubling occurrences related to the ongoing update of the Jekyll Island State Park Master Plan:
What was thought by many, especially on the left, to be domestic overreach by the George W. Bush administration in the name of national security now appears to be standard practice under the Obama administration.
I'm a bit old-fashioned when it comes to values. Now, mind you, I'm not talking about politics here; I try to steer clear of hot-button issues when it comes to this column. However, I could see how the two could become easily confused or even intertwined.
