Library offers summer programs

MOULTRIE — The Moultrie Colquitt County Library hosted an “American Girl” program with funds from a United Way grant called “Teens Taking Charge.”

Local teens that were involved in the Teen Leadership course selected the program to receive the grant.

“American Girl” was held over a six-week time period and was based on the popular “American Girl” book series.

The girls enjoyed getting to know each other through activities such as sewing, historical games, crafts, and basic cooking.

The grant enabled the library to purchase resources that will allow the program to continue periodically throughout the years.

Coming up this summer are Fizz Boom Pop: Science Show at 6 p.m., on June 3; The Magic of Science at 10 a.m., on June 5; The Circus King at 6 p.m., on June 10; The Ken Scott Show at 10:30 a.m., on June 12; Sea Mobile from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on June 13; Bugs vs. Machines at 6 p.m., on June 17; Pete the Cat at 10 a.m., on June 19; and Edible Science at 3 p.m., on June 24.

Programs at the Doerun Library will include The Magic of Science at 2 p.m., on June 5; and Pete the Cat at 2 p.m., on June 19.

Anyone interested in attending or for more information about the upcoming summer programs, can contact Michele Croft at the public library at 985-6540.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
