Economic blame game
“Why do Georgia’s Republicans, to hear them tell it the party of personal liberty and personal responsibility, blame Georgia’s economic woes on Pres. Obama, not Georgia’s General Assembly? I think the GA GOP would have us believe the tides are caused by the sun, the wind, and the rotation of the earth, not the moon.”
Can’t legislate it
“Legislating special treatment for wealthy people is like legislating special treatment for people who are well-dressed and physically attractive. Everyone knows they already receive a lot of special treatment. When casting around for great ideas that will change Georgia for the better, how would special treatment for the wealthy ever get on the agenda? Millionaire lawmakers?”
Talk is ridiculous
“The talk of the states seceding is ridiculous. If those states did secede, they would have to form their own military, get a passport to cross into the U.S. and, to top it off, all of the state officials in Washington D.C would be dismissed immediately. There would be ‘no fly zones’ and such. I can't believe this talk is actually still going on.”
Chaos at the shop
“Black Friday chaos has proven once again that the common man has no common sense. Our country continues its downward slide with ignorance increasing and civility becoming a thing of the past. As waist sizes explode, IQs tank.”

Letter to the Editor – Hands On Tifton a success because of volunteers, donors
The first annual Hands on Tifton day of service was incredible, but knowing the people of Tifton and how they care about this community, it was no surprise. There were 17 or so projects that were initiated or completed Nov. 16.

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.
