20 But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. 23 And those members of the bo…

A hint of embarrassment slides into his voice, when his mother says, I love you. Not that he doesn’t love his mother. Embarrassment or not, he responds by saying, he loves her, too.

First, a disclaimer; even though my first name is Forrest, I was named for my father, not the general nor the black contractor of the circa 1860s (I did however suffer through a period of my life when I endured the nickname of “Trees”). So I claim no special gift in determining the right or …

In the account of Abraham, Lazarus and the rich man (Lk.16:19-31), we encounter three men who are out-of-body who converse with each other across the chasm that separated paradise and hell, with the same personality and individuality that they had while living in-body on the surface of the earth.

The pitting of liberal black female Democrat Stacey Abrams against conservative white male Republican Brian Kemp vying for the governorship of Georgia has provided the MiracleGro needed for the full bloom of political punditry within the ranks of the political novelists.

The First Amendment is a two-way street. The President also has a right to respond. What the President has said is in response, unlike previous Republican Presidents who remained quiet and took the slant. The liberal media and the Democrats frankly lowered the level of conversation in this country.

A disenchanted ranter criticizes letter writers (Point of View) and writers of other worthy articles and twice emphasizes that writers are stating opinions and this is not reflective of what others may believe. 

I would like to make a brief comment about a petition being circulated about renaming Forrest Street here in Valdosta. There is no concrete evidence that the person that Forrest Street was named after many years ago had any connection with slavery in years past. The point is no one living to…

On Aug., 6, 2018, at  approximately 8 p.m., a leader cloud steered a thunderstorm into our area. I was sitting on the back steps and was able to witness and experience yet another thrilling moment in my life.

We join Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr in warning the public about a new scam where con artists are posing as government officials.

Sitting in the Valdosta city annex meeting space with a large group of business leaders, listening to a diverse group of people discuss the future of our community may sound boring to some, but it was refreshing.

After starting to read the letter to the editor titled “Shorthand indications of a coming dictatorship,” it wasn’t long before I said to myself, “yep, just another Ph.D. trying to cook someone’s goose.”

Cal Thomas is more in tune to what is really going on, July 18 and 19, 2018, while high-sounding and low-sounding words of Leonard Pitts, July 20, 2018, and George Will, July 21, 2018, are more about hysteria from the left, other anti-Trumpers and the biased media.

A potent personality — plus tact, talent, and tenacity — took Mary Hosbrook from the farm to a career as an artist and entrepreneur. Her life linked the 1860s to the 1960s, a century of expanding civil rights and women asserting their place in society.

I understand there is a move to rename Forrest Street after Barack Obama. Politicians already have enough things named after them. I propose that if we truly want to honor some great black individuals, by naming our streets after them, that we should look at some great black historical figur…
