“A Rant to local government street or road department for not correcting the dangerous drop off in the pavement turning area of Rainwater Road at the intersection with Carpenter Road in the southeast corner. Put up something. Or better yet, widen it to prevent falling into the ditch with vehicles turning onto Rainwater Road. This road is very much used because of ABAC, the Experiment Station and YMCA traffic.”
“It’s sad when someone steals from you, but even more sad when it’s family. Everyone gets mad at you and all they get is a slap on the wrist. No wonder there are so many thieves now. It’s because nothing is gonna happen to them.”
“I agree with "Living Proof" that the schools are not disciplining the students for misbehaving. I also believe this is a direct result of parents not allowing schools to discipline their children. I have been a teacher for over 10 years and I have watched discipline in our school almost disappear because parents refuse to allow the schools to discipline their children.”
“First, the self-styled ‘patriots’ wanted to secede. Now, some of them are flying the flag upside down. This is disrespectful of the flag and country. If the ‘patriots’ ever want to gain any lasting political stature in this country, they need to try to appeal to the voters rather than just annoying the dickens out of everybody with their intractable extremism.”
Fix it please

Students aren't blueberries
Dear Public School Teachers in Georgia: It looks as if you have survived another year of underwhelming support from state legislators, many of whom would kiss a tree toad if so instructed by the anti-public education crowd. I know it is frustrating but as my daddy used to say, consider the source.

You knew this was going to be a special season.From the season-opener, a 7-5 win over Crisp County and UGA signee Robert Tyler, to the very last pitch in Marietta May 15, the Tift County baseball team took us on a great journey that reached even further than on the baseball field for me.
May 21 Column – George F. Will
Leaving aside the seriousness of lawlessness, and the corruption of our civic culture by the professionally pious, this past week has been amusing. There was the spectacle of advocates of an ever-larger regulatory government expressing shock about such government's large capacity for misbehavior. And, entertainingly, the answer to the question "Will Barack Obama's scandals derail his second-term agenda?" was a question: What agenda?

Letter to the Editor for May 15
As a grandson of Henry Harding Tift and a long-time resident of Tift County, I would like to tip my hat to Edd Dorminey for the pivotal role he played in petitioning the state legislature to officially recognize the original intent that Tift County be named in honor of Capt. Tift.
A day late and a dollar short...sort of
I caught a lot of flack the past couple of days because, and I quote, “You write a column and you didn’t write about your mom for Mothers Day?”Yeah. Um. Just yeah.
