She loves that Red, White and Blue

Did you miss the flag dedication of the beautifully big American Flag located here in town on Hwy. 17 near the overpass? Yeah, me too.

Burned up over water

I have seldom seen so many people hot about water. Almost overnight, water conservation ranks right up there with banning gay marriages, abolishing the IRS and stopping the spread of children's health care as leading topics for fist-shaking argument.

Dear South Georgia: We want your water

In a recent column, Bill Shipp wrote about Atlanta's thirst for water reaching deep soon into South Georgia's resources.

Let the buyer beware GREAT plan?

" Let the buyer beware" may be appropriate when considering House Speaker Glenn Richardson's GREAT Plan to eliminate Georgia's property taxes, replacing them with additional sales taxes. An independent study by Georgia State University's Fiscal Research Center suggests another adage, "if it looks to good to be true, it probably is." The study suggests that it is unlikely that Richardson's proposal would raise the revenue needed to cover the loss of property taxes, leaving Georgia with a state budget awash in red ink.

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.

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.
