A plausible uniform policy

It seems some parents are upset over the Bryan County Board of Education's decision to allow only the week of spring break for them to compose an email or letter on the proposed school uniform policy. That doesn't mean the plan itself is bad.

An idea to think about

The recently resurrected idea to move the seat of Bryan County government from Pembroke to Richmond Hill isn't new. Indeed, some south Bryan residents may have wanted to see it done since Fort Stewart opened for business and effectively cut this county in half in the 1940s.

In response

Please read the letter to this newspaper on page 5A from several Bryan County commissioners, who chastise this newspaper up one side and down the other for, among other things, failing to mention a major step in the Henderson Park project in a story in last week's paper.

The changing face of the BC News

Tales, myths evolve; legends live on

Their histories, accurate and complete, are lost to time and buried with them and those who knew them. I wish I knew more because their stories would read like a page-turning novel.

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.
