Pastor's choir is a few singers short

Occasionally someone comes out of the woodwork, or in this case the palmettos, and causes a stir heard around the world. And so some fringe preacher from Florida declares that he will burn a Koran, and the next thing we know, it's the biggest news story of the day. Heads of state and generals had to stop what they were doing to ask that he please not do this.

Obama's grab toward 'infrastructure' won't work

Who is trapped in a deeper, more inaccessible bunker? The 33 Chilean miners getting food, water and messages from the outside world through a tiny borehole, or Rahm Emanuel and the fellas at the White House who have apparently not yet received word that the American public is summoning itself for a shattering rejection of the administration's spending?

It is important to remember

Most of us who have lived through historic moments can recall with some clarity where we were and what we were doing on those days, and Sept. 11, 2001, is no different. But it's often the case that the details tend to get a little fuzzy as time passes.

What economic meltdown?

For almost three years now the press has been full of descriptions of a "great recession," "financial meltdown" and "economic disaster." The reports of banks closing, pictures of long lines of unemployed and tragedy of people losing their homes through foreclosure persuade many that this country is in dire straits, suffering now and in danger of future bankruptcy.

Americans are facing a troubling reality. The economic recovery they were promised has not materialized. There's growing talk about a "new normal"-a new way of life to take us through a long period of failed recoveries.

Great place to live; where do we work?

As the saying goes, "Richmond Hill is a great place to live." We're such a great place to live that our population has more than tripled since 1990.

The latest, greatest debate

In all the hubbub over the construction of a mosque at Ground Zero in New York City as a reciprocal gesture of friendship to Muslims who have agreed to build the Ali Khamenei Baptist Tabernacle in downtown Tehran, you may have missed the latest debate between Georgia's gubernatorial candidates sponsored by the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company, located in a pool hall in Greater Garfield, Georgia.

Jewish New Year is time to reflect

This evening I'll be dipping pieces of apple into honey and wishing my husband and children L'shanah tovah – wishes for a sweet and good year. Later, we'll attend worship services in Savannah and listen to the sound of the shofar (ram's horn) being blown.

Make healthy cooking, eating fun

I've always heard and read that it's a good idea to involve children in meal-preparation efforts, because they're more likely to eat dishes that they helped cook. That makes sense.

Supports Kingston, Carter

Editor: Every decision by voters should be taken very seriously. It's our role as active citizens in this republic. This year, we have rare open seats for the U.S. Senate seat and our coastal Congressional seat. Our home front faces incredible challenges from a weak economy and illegal immigration to a lack of an energy policy and a broken healthcare system. Add to this a volatile world from the middle east to China and Russia and enemies circling America and Israel.

Renewables offset high gas prices

As Americans hop in their cars this summer, gasoline prices are at a six-year high. Thanks to surging demand and continued turmoil in Iraq, gas is quickly approaching $4 per gallon.

Village resident is proud of it

Editor; It's about time Richmond Hill City Council is seeking ways to ease drainage problems in our neighborhoods with the purchase of 24.75 acres of swamp land from Mulberry Co., LLC. I believe the purchase of this land when developed for recreational use will definitely be an asset to the city.
