“Thanks to Obamacare, Blue Cross Blue Shield told my phone their plans to raise premiums Jan. 1, 2014 here in Georgia. I am giving up my Chula citizenship and moving to another country. Goodbye.”
Thanks for the call
“I have a rave for Regina Wells and Brandy Craven. Thanks for the 5 a.m. donkey call! I hope Jack finds a good home.”
Tea Party questioned
“For the past two years the Tea Party has been wanting to ‘take our country back.’ My question is this, Where has America gone? What do they want to ‘take back.’ Last time I checked America was still here. Instead, the Tea Party needs to join us Democrats in making America a better country.”
Get off it
“Turner Co. really needs to get off it. Dr. Holland is a great coach and mentor to our young men.”
“Shame on Holland if he is recruiting. Takes away from the kids that have lived here most of their lives and dreamed of being a Blue Devil!!! Go Devils!!!”
“Can somebody please tell Orgill employees that South Central is not a race track at 6:50 in the morning. If you have to be at work by 7 a.m., leave a little early so you don't run folks over trying to get to work on time.”
Thanks for I-75
“As I witness all the new construction along I-75 in Tifton and the additional construction close to I-75, I look back to a earlier NO I-75 time in Tifton and recall three Tifton leaders who worked quitely and hard to have I-75 routed through Tifton and adjacent to U.S. Hwy. 41, instead of adjacent to Albany and along U.S. Hwy. 19. Thank you Denean Stafford and Paul Fullwood and past City Manager Shell Hartley for your efforts that have forever changed the path of Tifton.”
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.

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.
