GUEST COLUMN: Millennials are not voting because the political system is not working properly
All too often non-participation is used synonymously with apathy when, in fact, many of those who choose not to vote do so not because they don’t care, but because they are hypercritical of political procedures.
Stupid people can cause problems, but it usually takes brilliant people to create a real catastrophe.
OPINION: Choices are narrowing to chicken sandwiches and 8-track stereo

OPINION: The strategy Hillary Clinton is employing has for her and Bill Clinton

HISTORY: First Methodist Church youth group goes on week-long camping trip to Pine Mountain in 1949
With World War II over, Southwest Georgians focused on such topics as home ownership, farming, entertainment and keeping the KKK off the streets.
FEATURES COLUMNIST: The end of a trip sparks reflection
Traveling alone is not the most fun thing there is to do. The good news, however, is that you often find yourself deep in thought, keeping your mind free from what is on your desk or accumulating in your inbox. That is a good thing.
OPINION: Rail line to Savannah port will reduce truck traffic on the interstate
