Shooting by 9 year old stirs gun debate

PHOENIX (AP) - "All right, full auto," the firing-range instructor tells a 9-year-old girl. She braces the Uzi submachine gun and opens fire at a black-silhouette target. But the recoil wrenches the fully automatic weapon upward, and the instructor is shot in the head and killed.

Immunizations aren’t just for children

Earlier this month, about 30,000 of our county's population returned to school. Whether starting kindergarten, returning for their seventh grade year, or heading off to college, there is a lot that goes into preparing a student to start school. School supplies, new shoes, uniforms, new technology, new backpacks and lunchboxes, dorm room fixtures… the list goes on and on. On that list sometimes is a visit to your pediatrician for an update to your child's immunizations. It should be on all our lists, whether we have small children, grown children or no children.

The new face of evil

As Hannah Arendt foresaw, we are once again up against the question of evil. An American photojournalist, James Foley, was presented to the camera and methodically decapitated. The instrument was not the ax reserved for royalty or the whooshing blade prompted by that reformer Joseph-Ignace Guillotin, but an ordinary looking knife. Death would be neither swift nor painless. This, somewhere in the bleached desert, was pure evil.

No color in war

Soldiers of color, be it white, black, red, brown or yellow, have one human characteristic in common: we all bleed the same color. The warrior covering your back most likely wears the same color uniform, yet his or her race, creed or color has no relevance on the value of training or their desire to simply do what is right.

Charting a new course

Sunday's edition contained a special section detailing ways the city of Covington and Newton County were working their way out of the current recession. Unfortunately, in the same edition we published a front page story about the failure of McIntosh Bank.

While the bank's failure was more bad news about our local economy, we were pleased to find that CharterBank out of West Point had taken over control of McIntosh's assets and comforted that the Federal Deposit Insurance Agency was protecting McIntosh's customers.

It’s a start

Dear Editor: I have heard those who are against the Health Care Reform Bill carry on and on about how horrible it is. I agree that it is not the best it can be, but finally someone put something down on paper so that they can start somewhere and make changes to make it better. Before this bill, your health care coverage was run by the insurance industry that pays for your bills. Somehow, I would rather the government who is elected by the people of the United States be responsible than the companies who are trying to make a ...

Horsing around with the budget

I have a lot of respect for third-term State Sen. Ronnie Chance (R-Tyrone.) Sen. Chance's father, Louie, and I grew up in College Park and I know for a fact the young man comes from good stock. Louie Chance is a Great American.

Ronnie Chance is also politically skilled enough to tell me pointedly that you and I need to understand how grim Georgia's financial situation is these days. Maybe he is tired of my digs at his colleagues fretting over pistol-packing preachers and unauthorized tracking devices on our body parts and wants us to know some serious ...

Arts education

Dear Editor: The arts are proven to help close the achievement gap.

Telling it like it is: bunny tales

I love the holidays, Halloween and Easter being my favorite. My family says I go a little overboard with decorations and treats, but they secretly look forward to it and would be heartbroken if I didn't. Now that the kids are grown, I miss Easter egg hunts, dying eggs and making their Easter baskets.
