Whether you support Donald Trump or think he is guilty of nefarious deeds regarding Ukraine, he is not going to be removed from office unless Republicans have a death wish. This, despite ponderous pontifications by liberals that at least 10 Republicans senators will turn on him and provide a…
I recently wrote a letter in the paper concerning auto insurance. I pointed out that it would be much better to drop the requirement and set up a system where the state would cover the costs of damages in accidents.

Valdosta Toys for Tots would like to say thank you to everyone who participated in the 2019 campaign. It was a very successful year. Valdosta Toys for Tots was able to give toys to 4,100 needy children in the Lowndes, Echols, and Clinch counties who otherwise may not have been able to celebr…

I was disheartened to read Rep. (Dexter) Sharper’s misguided thoughts on e-cigarette use. In 2017, only 2.8% of adults were current e-cigarette users. More so, no e-cigarette product on the market has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration as a tobacco cessation device.
Philippians 3:7-14; Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the good; if you are struggling with a past choice, who might you talk to for help to press on? Jesus.
