When my daughter was small and we were riding in the car, she opened a piece of candy and tossed the paper out the window. My husband pulled over and made her pick it up. He said, "Not only I, but thousands have fought for this country. I lived a year in Viet Nam in filth and will not have a member of my family being responsible for causing litter in my country!"
I went out today and picked up piles of cigarette butts, candy wrappers, soft drink and beer bottles, and fast food containers from the road in front of my house. When we toss out litter to the side of the road, its like spitting on our flag! This is our country. How many have fought and died for it!
We should all be responsible for keeping it clean. We can't all serve in the armed forces, but we can all do our part by not littering our highways and roads. I give my promise to my husband, Jimmy Revell, who fought for our freedom, and to all those who serve in our armed forces, that I will do my part to keep our roads and highways clean by not littering.
I challenge everyone else to do the same. We have a great country and it is our responsibility to do our part to keep it that way!

One of our own
(Attention Colquitt County Board of Commissioners.)
I am aware the list of applicants for our new administrator has been narrowed to three candidates. In that list is one of our own, Chas Cannon.
In the first three months of 2014, Georgia has lost 35 of its residents to the ravages of fire. These numbers are among the highest in the nation during that time period and reflect the very real dangers that face each of Georgia’s residents when it comes to fire safety. Fire does not discriminate, and can strike at any time and in any type of home.

Hey guys, we aren’t going to win this one!
There must be a fine line between a dream and a nightmare. I think we can say that all nightmares are dreams but not all dreams are nightmares. Both can be stupid. Almost all of them are illogical.
Congratulations, you made school, community proud
If you were not at the 2014 Colquitt County High School Packer Idol competition this past Thursday, you missed a wonderful evening of music by some of the most talented students in our county.
