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

Letter to the Editor: Go Big Blue!
I watched our young men through the entire game this past Saturday night. I am so happy with the coach, team and the Tifton fans. I was unable to attend as I am under doctor’s care for a long bout with the flu; but I watched every second on GPTV.

Letter to the Editor: Demand term limits
In a recent televised press conference, a reporter inquired about Sen. Dave Camp's (R.Mich) tax overhaul plan, John Boehner tells him, "you're getting a little ahead of yourself" and says tax reform is difficult because of loopholes, deductions, write-offs for oil production, manufacturing, investment income etc.

Letter to the Editor: Proving who we are
I recently visited the DMV to renew my driver’s license. I was helped by courteous staff, but was confused when asked for my Social Security card and birth certificate in order to obtain a new license. This was done after collecting $20 for the renewal and taking my original hard copy license that had not yet expired.
