Moultrie is a such a beautiful town, and one of the reasons is our wonderful trees.
From the courthouse to the residential areas and throughout the county, we are surrounded with a marvelous array of magnificent trees and forests.
Each year I have tried to contribute t this beauty by giving away dogwood trees. Since I began this project - 31 years and counting - I have given away nearly 300,000 trees.
So once again, on Feb. 6 and 7 (Wednesday and Thursday) I will offer you these trees for free. Please drive down the alley behind Mattco Realtors to get your trees, and help keep our Dogwood City growing and beautiful.
Incidentally, this year on April 27, we are supporting a fund event called, “Moultrie Dogwood Festival. Great fun fo everyone.

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.

Tis’ the season when scammers hone their deeds
It might be the season to be jolly, and we all might hope for peace and goodwill, but the fact is this is also the season for scammers.

‘Black Friday’: It’s a subset of our capitalism
Someone asked me what the term “Black Friday” meant. Well my understanding is that it means businesses would like to end the year in the “black” as opposed to being in the “red” financially. So they have a big sale.
