Dooley's players need to ensure legacy

Last Saturday while the Bulldog nation sweated out a 35-32 victory over the Tennessee Volunteers that should not have been as hard as our scholar-athletes made it, former head football coach and athletic director Vince Dooley's first team at UGA was recognized on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. As nice as that was, more - much more - needs to be done to honor the legendary Hall of Fame coach.

Missing the story on Patton

It's a fortunate thing that Bill O'Reilly's latest book, "Killing Patton," was written by him and not someone else. In that case, O'Reilly would have taken the poor person apart, criticizing the book for its chaotic structure, for its considerable padding and for its repellent admiration of a war-loving martinet who fought the Nazis and really never understood why. George S. Patton stood almost shoulder to shoulder with them in his anti-Semitism -- not that O'Reilly seems to have noticed or, for that matter, mentioned in his book.

Our Thoughts: Honor

Dr. William Dobbs was not only a good man and a great, caring doctor, but he was also an honorable politician. It was the right thing for the City of Covington to honor the memory of this respected man, just four months after his death.

Missing in action

The home city of record for Lance Corporal David Nipper is Atlanta. Perhaps the city of Atlanta was listed for convenience, but my theory is a bit more skeptical. This young marine was unintentionally overlooked due to careless record-keeping or the lack of clerical experience dealing with Georgia's first warrior listed as MIA (Missing in Action) during the war in Southeast Asia.

Our thoughts... Tether laws

It shouldn't happen to a dog, but it often does. Too many pet owners chain up their pooch in the backyard for long hours without access to food or water, or allow the dog's chain to become hopelessly entangled and the poor pooch left hopelessly immobile and barking out its frustrations.

The Newton County Board of Commissioners last week decided to crack down on such neglect. Commissioners approved an ordinance that adds several new regulations, including: providing shelter, providing enough food and water, making sure the tether has enough length and durability and making sure the area where ...
