Sticker: Osama has left the building

I don't know about you, but I believe Osama bin Laden was killed. I don't believe that they slipped him off the side of the boat alive where he was picked up by a mini-sub and was taken to where they keep Elvis and Jimmy Hoffa.

Six ways to Sunday drives in Georgia

Transportation policy may not have been the priority during the legislative session, but in the long shadow of the Gold Dome, proposals, plans, ideas and reports were moving right along. And now that the regular legislative session is over, expect greater focus on the good, the bad and the ugly of future transportation decisions for Georgia.

Reform finally on front burner

The time, 2008, and candidate Barack Obama told a Spanish TV audience on Univision, "What I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I'm promoting." When 2010 rolled around, Hispanics were wondering why the now President Obama hadn't kept his word. They are still wondering.

We're all in this fight together

One of the most amusing things I've witnessed as a military spouse is the continuous competition between branches of the military.

Give credit where it is due

As a Vietnam veteran and a resident of Liberty County, where so many trees have been planted in recent years in memory of fallen warriors from Fort Stewart, I took a special interest and satisfaction in the recent success of our U.S. military taking down enemy No. 1 in the war on terrorism, Osama bin Laden.

Military heroism deserves appreciation

Dear Editor: I very much enjoyed reading Jameson Cunningham's thought-provoking column in last Saturday's Bryan County News regarding retired Navy captain and Sen. John McCain, and I want to thank you for publishing his comments. I concur with Jameson's opinion that the senator certainly should be considered a true American hero for what he personally endured while serving his country in Southeast Asia.

New 'sheriff' on open meetings

There's nothing nuanced about Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens' understanding of the state's "open meetings" law - and that's a good thing.

Ax failed agencies to cut the deficit

Each year since 1969, the federal government has spent more than it has taken in from taxes, causing the United States Treasury Department to borrow to keep up with Congressional spending. The federal fiscal year starts Oct. 1 and during the first four months of this year, the treasury has had to borrow $169 billion just to pay interest on the borrowed money.

Higher jobless rate is cause for optimism

Normally, an uptick in the unemployment rate would not be considered good news. But it is a peculiarity of the economic recovery that April's increase in the unemployment rate from 8.8 percent, a two-year low, to 9 percent is actually cause for optimism.

Home is where a caring heart is

For many of us, the word "home" signifies refuge, safety, caring, warmth and love - a sanctuary where we belong. Home is the place that we know is waiting for us at the end of our daily journey into the rushed and sometimes chaotic world. I love coming home in the evening- even if it is a particularly late night, which happens often. The first thing I listen for when I walk in the door is a greeting from my wife and daughter. Nothing beats a "Hey Honey" and "Hi Daddy, how was your day."
