A new hope for Nelson Heights

As he snipped the red, celebratory ribbon, District 4 Commissioner J.C. Henderson officially opened the Nelson Heights Community Center, completing a dream several years in the making.

"Most people know that even though it's been appointed as being my idea, it's not. It's really your idea," Henderson told the assembled crowd that packed the new center. "When we first started thinking about the 2005 SPLOST, we wanted to go out to people who lived in the community and ask for your ideas, your opinions. What do you want? What's your vision?"

Snake oil salesmen in internet clothing

For some time now I've preached about the evil side of the internet and how people can be taken in by ruses or outright hoaxes. Human nature leads us to more or less believe what we see in print. If the internet says it's true, anyone can be fooled, especially those who lack the common sense which comes with life experience to recognize balderdash when they see it. And all too often these days, many people are just too busy to research a fantastic claim made on the internet in order to verify its validity.
