“We need better dog regulations in Colquitt County. Commissioners, please do something! Must someone be savagely mauled to put regulations in place as Dougherty County did?
"My neighbor has a large fenced backyard, yet every day several times a day, she opens her front door and let her two dogs out to run rampant in the neighborhood. Her comment when asked to come and call her dog was, ‘I don’t care where they go’. Why should we pay taxes if we do not have a right to our own property?"
“Do you ever think about the two main goals of the Republican party? Lower taxes for the wealthy and spending cuts primarily effecting the poor. I never get tired of their whining about poor people who only make a quarter of a million dollars a year and how they would get the ‘vapors" if they paid a dime more.
And how about those cuts they're so worried about? Next time you get a chance, ask one of them exactly what are they intending to cut. Chances are you'll get nothing but ‘crickets’. That’s their dirty little secret. Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid, that’s their targets. But you'll never get them to admit it."
“I saw the guns and knives for sale by the city. I don't see anything wrong. They are only going to sale to a dealer. That means to buy them you have to go through legal channels. If you don't want your local hoodlums and thugs to have guns then teach them better or punish them for their crimes."
“It’s time for the City of Moultrie to stop people from using the downtown area around the courthouse as a restroom for animals. This must be stopped. People cannot enjoy the courthouse lawn anymore because of fecal matter and the bushes in front of businesses smell like dog urine."
“Mr. Obama & Family make the personal choice to travel to Hawaii several times a year. There is no reason except they want to go, and the cost is not a factor that they consider(about anything). People who support Obama are showing how confused they are when they make these lame excuses for his irresponsible behavior."
“How about a ‘none of the above’ vote? I'm tired of voting for the lesser of two evils."
“You know we keep ignoring the big gorilla in the room ... foreign wars. In the very big picture they cost us billions of dollars and loss of precious lives. We fight in countries that are tribal and will never embrace real democracy. The cost of these wars is not just the immediate guns and ammo. Just think of the medical care that such events require for many years to come. It seems we have a war mentality."
In an emergency, can rescue teams quickly find you?
For the most part, we haven’t had any severe winter weather here yet. And winter doesn’t officially start until Dec. 21.
But we can expect some cooler temperatures and they often bring some tragedies in the form of house fires.
A great community
A few weeks ago my family and friends had a fund drive for me. I would like to thank everyone that had a part in The Day For Duke. Words can’t describe how I felt that day and still do!

One might find great resolve in Mandela’s life
There’s a scripture in the Bible that says “A soft answer turneth away wrath.”
Whenever we think of Nelson Mandela, that verse should come to mind. Many would say he epitomizes that notion even though in his younger days he might have exuded much more spit and vinegar in pursuing a cause.

It’s true: Objects are closer than they appear
You know that little warning on your rearview mirror that says, “Objects are closer than they appear.” Well, it’s true.

How did those lame names happen?
I’ve often wondered what process is used to determine the mascot name for a football team. Is there a committee formed to do this? Is it thrown out to the public in the form of a contest to come up with a moniker? Were two drunks in a bar involved?

In retrospect, tragedy seemingly gains new light
It’s often said that hindsight is 20-20. Many of us have instances in our lives where that thought would have application.
Now comes the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. As you recall, Zimmerman, described by some as a cop wannabe who couldn’t make the grade, killed young Martin. The jury acquitted Zimmerman of homicide charges. Many felt the prosecution was weak.
