What would happen if you won an Oscar?

Many of us watched the annual Academy Awards last Sunday night. The telecast started an hour and half before the actual ceremonies, as the various celebrities walk the "Red Carpet" to enter the auditorium. And that was followed by over three hours of music, film clips, speeches, and awards. For those involved in the ceremony, the night was just starting as the telecast ended. There was the Governor's Ball followed by many parties. The major networks featured the awards in their Monday morning programs.

Belton: AP history test ‘lengthy, partisan, leftist’

A disturbing turn of events has occurred with the new Advanced Placement History Test. The AP has been around since 1956, offering high school students the opportunity to gain college credit by taking a very difficult class and passing a very difficult test. Unfortunately, the College Board (the same folks who write the SAT) has suddenly created a biased and left-leaning test.

You grow to what you are committed to

Our lives are molded by the long term commitments that we make. This is true with the commitments we make to one's family, to one's community and nation, to one's profession, to one's faith and to one's friends. These commitments become the standards by which we judge our decisions; they become the guide posts on our journey through life.

Before we learned to lie

It's Presidents Day as I write this column, and I've just returned from a cold, wet drive to Madison, Georgia where I dined at Cracker Barrel on a righteous plate of veggies, biscuits and blackberry jelly. That's a bit of a hike from Covington, but I wanted some good food, and I wanted to test out the new Pirelli P4 tires I had installed on Lazarus, my back-from-the-dead, ancient BMW. The ride was silky smooth and the folks at Cracker Barrel had a roaring fire going - one of the other reasons I was willing to trek to ...

Burnham: Losing your worship

Have you ever lost something under the sofa? You know that feeling you get when you drop something and it rolls (almost as if in slow motion) right up under there? Down we go scrambling on our hands and knees (with a flashlight or broom handle) in search of that lost item. Oh, I wish God's people would go in search of their worship that way.

You may say, "My worship isn't lost, I go to church." But that's the point. So many have lost their worship and don't even realize it. We go to church ...

Akin’s proclamation on rape pregnancy

Dear Editor: Three things are disturbing to me about the Akin proclamation on pregnancy from rape. One is that it implies that rape victims who become pregnant are really liars and willing participants. That is a myth frequently suggested by rapists in court. Two is that what Akin and Dr. Willkie, his source, assert is true was scientifically disproven by a Medical University of South Carolina study published in 1996 (see http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8765248). Three, that asserting populist hypotheses as fact even when contradicted by data collection and analysis appears to be a Republican tendency.

Newton Library

Dear Editor: How in the world did the library get this bad? Just a few years back, Newton County had the number one library in the state of Georgia. Where are we now? Closing the doors? The blame lies with the Board of Trustees. The person they hired from Waycross is not doing her job nor are you. You had people already on your staff, darn good people. Now most are gone. Thanks from an angry person who uses the library a lot.
