Dear editor: Flowers just don't seem appropriate. How do I honor someone like her? A tribute in writing seems more fitting because writing was Shirley Hiers' gift and she shared it with all of us.
Let's just suppose that someone took a buffalo calf from Montana and relocated it to Texas. Would that give us the right to sell it as a cow? What a stupid question, you may say. Well that's what's happening in the fishing industry.

The ongoing heat wave likely has many Coastal Georgia residents longing for the frigid winter months we couldn't wait to be rid of just a short time ago. But since we're not likely to receive a light dusting of snow any time soon, taking refuge in comfortable, air-conditioned spaces will have to do for now.
