Great job, Jean
“A RAVE to Mrs Jean Edwards and all the election location workers in Tift County who were the model of politeness and quickness in our recent voting. Looking at other states (Florida) and other local governments makes us all appreciate the professionals staff and volunteers who help our voting experience a pleasure here in Tift County—Thank You”
Hooray for gridlock
“Some say gridlock in congress for at least the next two years. The best thing for a congress like we have now is to just do nothing. Had we had gridlock in 2009, Obamacare would never have happened. And that would have been a good thing. Hooray for gridlock !!”
“As a parent of a Tift County High School student, I am offended at the lack of an official announcement from the superintendent’s office concerning the change in administration at the school. I’m certainly not asking for details, but a simple, professionally-worded announcement (both to parents and students) would have been appreciated. ”
See the irony?
“I just want to make sure I understand. Tift Regional is a non-profit, but it has about $64 million on hand. Tift Regional has more than enough collateral to cover their debt restructure, but they want the people of Tift County (who made that $64 million) to back the bonds. Doesn’t anyone see the irony of this?”
“Dear Mr. Atwater, will you please explain your actions regarding Dr. Gravitt. It seems no one knows anything and rumors have spread from here to tim buck two. Reprimand where needed, but man up and explain to parents as well as concerned citizens and tax payers. It’s embarrassing that everyone is talking about a situation no one seems to know anything about.”
Great job, Jean
Send the snipers to the unemployment line
Snipers. They’re everywhere. You turn this way, and PING! You’re hit. You turn that way and ZIP! A near miss.
This Tuesday, we decided to focus our front page coverage of the Monday night City Council meeting on the retirement of council member Marianna Keesee. That meeting was her last one, and we felt that after her years of service, both on the council and in the community, she deserved the front page. Someone even said that in a rant we received Tuesday morning.

Letter to the Editor – Coordinators thank relay centers, volunteers
We would like to thank everyone who packed a shoebox, donated money for shipping a shoebox, or volunteered at a relay center or collection center in our area this year. Thanks to your generosity, 15,678 children around the world will not only receive a shoebox with items they need, but will also have the opportunity to hear about the greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ.

Thankful for so many things...
I was thinking earlier this week about the things I’m thankful for. There are many. But I’ll start with my mother.
