A few days before Bernie Sanders lost badly in the New York primary, 27,000 souls filled Washington Square Park, many wildly cheering him on. The political media consensus interpreted the scene as evidence of surging support for the senator from Vermont. It did not occur to them that:
In 2007, with the support from the community and a 100-acre land donation from a local philanthropic fund, an exemplary attribute to Newton County was created in the emergence of Georgia Perimeter College. The college allows students from the surrounding counties to obtain a two-year degree and achieve countless opportunities. The Newton campus is a place for dual enrollment students, transfer and first-time freshman students to earn their associate degree.
Our imagination can help us sense the world in a different way. We all need those special places where we can see more than the surface reality; places where we can be creative in our thinking and enjoy the day in a relaxed way.
One of my questions when I get involved in a discussion with people about a financial matter, ObamaCare for example, is "Who is going to pay for all of this?" The topic could also be something like local recreation or the new Braves stadium, and my question remains the same.
Many people are like me in one respect -- they enjoy tilling garden soil and planting vegetables just to see things grow. Fresh tasting vegetables are an added benefit. My favorite vegetables to eat are fresh okra, peas and sweet corn, but I enjoy growing tomatoes the most. Tomatoes just seem to be more of a challenge for me.
Romans 12:1-2 says,"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
The regular season has officially ended for Region 2-AAAAA baseball. Newton High School joins Rockdale, Lakeside and Tucker as the four teams from the region to clinch playoff spots, and in the last week of the regular season, they battled it out for their final positions.
For three former Eastside Eagle softball players, their on-field careers are quickly approaching the final inning. Four years ago, Eagle teammates Amanda Hawkins, Taylor Causey and Erin Steele were seniors looking forward to their 2012 graduation day and nervously anticipating what awaited them in the fall when they would each begin playing softball for their respective colleges. Each had already celebrated their accomplishment of receiving a college scholarship earlier in the year with a signing day ceremony surrounded by family, friends, coaches and teammates.
As a child, the fear of being caught breaking a rule was more inherent to me as morality. When I was faced with an opportunity to make a bad decision, the thought running through my mind was "what if dad found out".
If the polls hold, scoring tickets to "Hamilton" will be as good as it's going to get for Bernie Sanders in New York. But let us first linger in Wisconsin, where Democrats and independents gave Sanders what looked like a decisive win.
It's time to break some ground and get growing. Maybe it's time to break out of that rut of growing four tomato plants a year, and grow a diverse garden full of strange vegetables. Or maybe this is the year to that you need to grow enough to be prepared for a zombie apocalypse or the crash of the supermarket industry.
