"I would like to rave about the city's sign ordinance. My wife and children were hit in an accident because there were streamers and banners at an intersection. I think if you went out First Avenue toward the highway, everything is cleared up. I think the city is doing a very good job."
"The incidence of alcoholism is significantly higher among those who start drinking in their teens and those who start drinking in their 20s. There is a sound biological basis for having the legal drinking age at 21."

"This is a response to 'How I See It' in the paper recently. It's interesting that there are so many companies that you know of that have been turned away from Colquitt County. It appears that you have knowledge that many of the city and county officials do not have. I would encourage you to attend the meeting of the Moultrie-Colquitt County Development Authority. Call the Chamber of Commerce and find the time of the meeting and join them and give them your insight so that they might do a better job for our community."
"These copycat lawsuits against the drug task force sound like the copycat school shootings. When one person gets media attention because of a lawsuit, everybody wants to jump on the bandwagon to see what they can get."
It's about kids
