Childhood choices affect whole lives

To this conclusion I have come: the most deadly years of our lives are the ages of 16 to 21. Those years give us a headiness that comes from new freedom - a driver's license - and the passing of the torch from strict childhood rules to more trust, different restraints and relaxed curfews.

The three scariest words in English

What are the three scariest words of the English language? On a serious note, it could be, "You have…(fill in the blank)." The "blank" could most likely be the scariest word of all.

Local supports Johnson

Editor: Lately your newspaper has printed several letters stating that Buddy Carter is just like Jack Kingston. These claims are extreme exaggerations and pretty farfetched. You see, I knew Jack Kingston when he first came to Savannah after finishing at University of Georgia. I met him while participating in Republican Party events. He was dating Libby Morrison, later his wife, and looking to become active in Chatham County politics. I supported and worded for Jack when he made his first run for the Georgia State House seat. Later, when I was the Chairman of the Chatham Party Republican, I worked ...

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.

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.
