A tale of two speeches

Donald Trump gained a commanding win in New York this week, picking up 89 of the 95 New York state Republican delegates. The win brought his total delegate count to 845, or 68 percent of the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the nomination. It was an important night for Trump, and brought him much closer to becoming the Republican nominee.

A sophomore in her final semester at GPC

In 2007, with the support from the community and a 100-acre land donation from a local philanthropic fund, an exemplary attribute to Newton County was created in the emergence of Georgia Perimeter College. The college allows students from the surrounding counties to obtain a two-year degree and achieve countless opportunities. The Newton campus is a place for dual enrollment students, transfer and first-time freshman students to earn their associate degree.

Future taxes on retirement assets

One of my questions when I get involved in a discussion with people about a financial matter, ObamaCare for example, is "Who is going to pay for all of this?" The topic could also be something like local recreation or the new Braves stadium, and my question remains the same.

Weeds be gone from your garden

Many people are like me in one respect -- they enjoy tilling garden soil and planting vegetables just to see things grow. Fresh tasting vegetables are an added benefit. My favorite vegetables to eat are fresh okra, peas and sweet corn, but I enjoy growing tomatoes the most. Tomatoes just seem to be more of a challenge for me.

Living Sacrifice

Romans 12:1-2 says,"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."

A couple of weeks ago, I was highly critical of the efforts of proponents of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and particularly of State Sen. Josh McKoon (R-Columbus).
