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.

Seersucker meets Gucci

As my close friends can verify, I am quite fashion-conscious. A regular clothes horse. I seek to be dressed correctly for all occasions.

My formal evening attire, for instance, is always impeccable. For one thing, Harvey, the guy over at the tux rental place, always sees to it any cummerbund I get has no soup stains on it from a previous wearing.

Small platform

Dear Editor: Your paper printed an article on the Jan. 2 front page about what Sen. Douglas was going to do concerning sex offenders running for school board seats in Newton County.

My first question is has John Douglas ever done anything in office except talk about sex? Here are some cold hard facts. One year ago John Douglas and the school board member for District Two of Newton County talked about my running for the school board seat. It was printed in your newspaper. Citizens are tired about reading about sex in the newspaper just about every day.
