Kimble: Box up the books for a good cause

Who remembers the little stuffed animal mouse tucked into a hole in the wall at the children's library?

I've heard those murals are still painted on some of the walls over at the building near the square where so many of my generation spent the summer checking out towering stacks of books and listening to library programs.

Burgess: Social Circle Theater - our cultural icon

Yesterday, my husband and I attended a performance at the Social Circle Dinner Theater of "Quilters," a musical with lyrics and music by Molly Newman and Barbara Damashek. The play is based on the book "The Quilters: Woman and Domestic Art" by Patricia Cooper and Norma Bradley and had a brief run on Broadway in 1984. The play portrays the important role of quilting in the lives of pioneer women as they confronted and endured the harsh realities of the frontier. The quality of the talent and professionalism in this production was absolutely incredible, rivaling Broadway productions my husband and ...

Channel 23

Dear Editor: I am disappointed, of course, that the county has chosen not to air any debates or forums for the upcoming election on Channel 23. I would love the chance to share my vision in the forum and welcome the opportunity to show the differences between me and the (current) chairman in a way that the whole community can see it if they wish.

It has always been the practice in the past to use the channel to benefit the community and show these forums. I know we did it when I was on the Board of Commissioners, because ...

Yarbrough: Charter school saber rattling

I knew it was going to get ugly, but I didn't know it would get this bad, this quickly. I am talking about the constitutional amendment on charter schools to be voted on in November that asks, "Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to allow state or local approval of public charter schools upon the request of local communities?"

Dr. John Barge, Georgia state school superintendent, opposes the amendment. House Majority Whip Edward Lindsey, R-Atlanta, infers that Barge is a liar. Is the charter school crowd running that scared this early? They have to resort to personal attacks ...
