Letter: Items taken from Chimney Park

Dear Editor: Last Sunday, Friends of Newton Parks welcomed some 1,300 guests and performers to our annual "Twilights at Chimney Park" festival of lights. It was better than ever, and the growth in attendance each year proves that Chimney Park and "Twilights" have become a must-see during the holiday season.

The lights in Chimney Park will be on every Thursday night in December from 5:30 to 9 p.m., and we hope you'll visit often to enjoy the magic created by so many talented volunteers and supporters.

Barge: A stronger educational foundation

With the holiday season upon us, most Georgians are thinking about celebrations with family and friends, holiday break and, of course, gifts. This holiday season, I am encouraging Georgia parents and grandparents to give the most important gift you can to your children - the gift of education.

In the early years of a child's life, this gift involves reading with your children, playing with them and encouraging a love of learning. As they go through school, Georgia's teachers will work hand-in-hand with you to build upon the foundation you have established to prepare your children for success.

My little boo boo

I skinned my knee today. I wasn't too smart, stepping out of the shower, realizing my towel was out in the hall, trying to navigate slick floors with wet feet. I moved across the floor and then I went down, slipping and skidding. Ouch! And when I looked at my knee, it was bleeding, and there were little bits of skin - little bits of me - that weren't attached to me anymore. Did I mention, "OUCH!" already? Just checking. I was in pain, and I felt stupid. Only little children skin their knees. Adults get ulcers and hernias; they ...

Future Generations

Is there any reason for today's Americans to care about what happens to tomorrow's Americans? After all, what have tomorrow's Americans done for today's Americans? Moreover, since tomorrow's Americans don't vote, we can dump on them with impunity. That's a vision that describes the actual behavior of today's Americans. It would be seen as selfish, callous and ruthless only if it were actually articulated. Let's look at it.
