  • Debate, postulate don’t regurgitate

    My hat goes off to Joe Yates. He definitely poked a certain constituency in the eye with his letter on July 25 and again last week.

    The letters we’ve received since Yates’ initial letter have been, overwhelmingly, in support of Geoff Davis and against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

    Each letter has had, to some degree, a “fact” that has been resoundingly debunked by the major fact checking services.

  • The Music Man

    Playing music is different than just listening to it for Chip Anderson. He hopes his teaching makes the same difference for his students.

    Anderson exposes Henry County middle and high school students to a broad spectrum of music from the classical to the contemporary. From Mozart to Cee Lo Green, students learn to play a variety of music that is entertaining and educational not just in the classroom, but at ballgames. His passion for music led to his job as Henry County middle and high school band director.

  • It all belongs to God... and us, too

    The Psalmist declared, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” Psalm 24:1 NRSV

    Really? Well, of course the Lord created heaven and earth and all living things. I know that. Is that what the Psalmist meant? Maybe, but maybe more is meant.

  • How to choose wisely: debit, credit and prepaid cards

    Many consumers use debit, credit and prepaid cards, often interchangeably, to purchase goods and services. However, these three types of cards are quite different. Consider the following.

    Each card works differently. If you use a credit card, you are borrowing money that you must pay back, in addition to interest, if you do not pay the balance in full by the due date. But, if you use a debit card, which is issued by your bank and linked to your checking or savings account, the money taken from the account is yours and you will never incur interest charges.
