A death to redeem us

On Christmas Eve, we talked about a child who was born to save us. We talked about his purpose. Tonight, we see that baby, now grown, fulfill it. And I have to warn you - it's not pretty. No longer a cuddly little baby in swaddling clothes, this grown man had been beaten, stripped, mocked, whipped, and could barely physically drag his pulp of a body out to this hill for the climax of this cruelty. It is not pretty. Yet this Friday is Good, precisely because it is Him doing what He came for. In order to save us ...

The Color of Georgia

My father, Newt Gingrich, ran for congress in rural, west, middle Georgia in 1974. At the time, Georgia was dominated by the Democratic Party, there were few Republicans in the state and Watergate was in full swing. Somehow, against this headwind, he managed to garner 49 percent of the vote. He never stopped running, waking up the day after the election to shake hands at the Ford Factory as their shift changed.

The big tent yard sale

For far too long, I have been delaying the inevitable project of getting rid of some stuff. We have talked about a yard sale for a long time, but have not quite put it together.

I come from a long line of people who hung on to stuff long after it had served its useful purpose. I also married into a family with a similar bent. We now have two houses of stuff. One, we live in and the other that needs to be emptied.

Grace notes: God’s grace to get you to speak up!

You see a family member mistreating their spouse. You have a co-worker that's probably an alcoholic. There's a brother or sister in Christ who's spending less and less time in God's word and his house. Someone should say something, right? Of course, what they are doing is harmful to themselves, to those they love, even to their relationship with God. But do you want to be the one to have to speak up?

It's just that it's so hard, isn't it? We've all fallen down at times God has wanted us to ...

Appreciative

Dear Editor: Thank you so much for the support you gave the 181st historic Salem Camp Meeting. The great articles by Colleen Jackson and the pictures by Brittany Thomas were outstanding and should win a Georgia Press Association award.

Salem was very successful this year. I am thankful that we have a newspaper that supports religious institutions that are working for a better community.

Take better care

To the editor: In the black section of the Covington City Cemetery, tombstones have been knocked down, vandalized and carried away over the last 50 years. City officials have done nothing. These tombstones were very close to newly built houses. In the last 5 years, the tombstone of Emory Willis, a World War I veteran, has disappeared.

At Westside Cemetery, Henry Willis's tombstone was in place a couple of years ago. He died in the late 1920s. Now that space has been cleared and the marker is gone. The space has been cleared to bury new people.

Careless accidents

Dear Editor: Just as we should hold accountable public services when they do not perform to standard or satisfaction, we should also commend them when they perform their duties in an exceptional fashion. The latter applies in this case.

On Sunday, July 19, at 7 p.m. I was driving south on the Bypass in front of Covington Place. A dog entered the road and the cars in front of me slowed. I also slowed as did the car behind me. As I cleared the dog, I started to accelerate. Unfortunately the driver of the vehicle two cars behind me ...

Obamanation

Dear Editor: Our mystic president from Hawaii or Indonesia or Kenya or wherever (but then who cares) promised a transparent and open government as basic for him if elected. Instead, after almost six months in office, his administration seems more politics of smash and grab than ever before seen. As he frantically goes about totally dismantling what it was that got us where we once were, there is little or no outcry from the media, his political opponents and us, the ones who put him there.

While Obama's governing appeal may have reached an apogee, too many stick to ...

Senate Approves Chambliss-Isakson Legislation to Ensure Counting of Overseas Military Ballots

WASHINGTON - The Senate approved by voice vote today an amendment to the defense authorization bill co-sponsored by U.S. senators Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., to ensure that all ballots cast by U.S. troops overseas are counted in elections.

"Of the 992,000 military and overseas absentee ballots requested for the 2006 election, more than 660,000 never reached election officials," said Chambliss, the bill's lead Republican sponsor and a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. "This is simply unacceptable. I'm glad my colleagues recognized that our military men and women serving overseas to ...
