I-75’s no burden
“To I-75 a burden, to start with our crime rate is no worse than Moultrie's, we are opening new businesses in Tifton each month and the noise level is no worse than any other city. As far as tickets on I-75, they are only issued to folks breaking the law and those are the only one's that are complaining. Tifton is a nice place for most of us!!!”
Kiss it goodbye
“I see where the state is asking for a bunch of federal money to improve the Savannah harbor. If the state secedes, we can probably kiss that money goodbye. ”
“We don't need to form a group to monitor what Republicans say and challenge them. We already have one. It's called the mainstream press. What would be great is if the press did its job and challenged Democrats too, instead of propagating their lies for them.”
“I have some suggestions for folks complaining about traffic light timing and the ones complaining abour being ‘harassed’ by law enforcement and given tickets — change your route if the traffic lights waste your time and don’t commit traffic offenses to draw law enforcement attention. You’d be surprised at how they will leave you alone when you obey the traffic laws.”

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.
