STOVALL: GHSA still trying to figure out transfers, big props to Atlanta Braves

Anyone who thinks covering one county with just three Georgia High School Association schools has time to be bored doesn't really know much about that one county with three schools that they're covering.
There's a lot - I repeat - a LOT happening either directly in the Newton County sports scene, or something that has a direct impact on our schools - particularly our GHSA schools.
So in this buffet-style Sunday Sound Off where I endeavor to give you a little bit of this and that, let's start off with this:
GHSA. Typically whenever we mention the GHSA one ...

Pace: Traveling Through Europe with Oxford College Students

The idea for this trip began with a suggestion from Oxford College's Communications Director, Cathy Wooten. Five years ago she looked at me and said, "You know that 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, right?" I hadn't given it a lot of thought to be honest, but I knew she was right, and I could tell where she was going with it.

The Alcovy Telegraph: Correspondence from your trusted Correspondent

Hello, C-town! And we sure hope its lovely out there for everyone. In addition to being a proud member of the Tonto Network, I've mentioned a few other resources we utilize to bring y'all the word around town.

Gingrich Cushman: Be Wary of Anonymous Sources

The public's insatiable desire for content has led a number of so-called reporters to lower their standards and practice shoddy journalism -- biased, full of conclusions that were reached before facts were verified, reliant on anonymous sources who may have their own axes to grind.

Harrop: Can Americans Get Their Democracy Back?

Boy, wouldn't it be great to get that mentally unstable thug out of the Oval Office? That's putting it undiplomatically, I know, but the time has passed for treating the presidency of Donald Trump as anything less than a freaky aberration of our democratic norms. Thank you, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, for dispensing with all delicacy and stating that Trump has put our institutions under assault "internally," as well as "externally."

Conason: Congress: Demand White House Transcript

If Donald Trump disclosed highly classified state secrets to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister, he may be vulnerable to impeachment -- not because he broke the law, which evidently he did not, but because he committed an act that would be considered criminal and perhaps treasonous if perpetrated willfully by any other government official.
