it ... pendulum no longer swings
By DAVE HAMRICK
Have we reached
the point in this still-new experiment we call the United States that
we're afraid to make a real, positive change?
Tyrone, who regulates the regulators?
By DENNIS CHASE
Irony comes in many
forms and all too often at the expense of taxpayers. That is exactly
what is happening with recent events in Tyrone. The city of Tyrone,
long known for being a very nice place to live, has a problem. Actually,
they have several problems, and I have not been shy about passing this
message along to them directly and bluntly. Telephone calls, fax messages
and statements at their city council meetings have proven to be useless.
They prefer to believe their city manager and now well, now comes the
clever old Nostalgia guy, he has a way of getting deep into our pockets
By AMY RILEY
I met someone a
while ago. You may know him, too. His name is Nostalgia, and he is the
most talented, charismatic, and poignantly direct person I have ever
If you think a black
and white lab is a speckled dog and not a place to develop monochrome
photographs, then you are in the same boat as me. I learned that I have
a lot to learn about the tide of studio photography in the 21st century
when I visited "Images by Rainy" in Fayetteville.

will never get it about legal abortion
I am convinced that
men (and women, alas) such as Father [David] Epps [in The Citizen Review,
July 6] will never begin to understand what an agonizing decision it
is to seek an abortion, nor the horrific circumstances that accompany
it. Can there be no understanding and compassion for the woman involved?
light for Wal-Mart
So, another "evaluation"
has been made for the Ga. highways 54-74 area in Peachtree City, finding
that it will meet the traffic ordinance. Maybe, like some weather forecasters
should, they should stick their heads out window and take a look.
4th Parade has become embarrassing 'gimme fest'
I think the good
people of Peachtree City have confused the Fourth of July with Halloween.
My family and I attended the parade, and it was like no other July 4th
parade I've ever seen.
care: Why emulate Russia, Canada, Mexico?
Re: "We need
a strong patients' bill of rights now."
care plan is just fancy income redistribution
Like many seniors,
I sacrificed and worked hard for over 40 years with certain goals in
mind. One of those goals was not to be a burden to my children. I saved,
invested, bought health and long term care insurance and, most importantly,
lived a healthy lifestyle so that I would not cause myself physical
problems in the long run.
health care will be mediocre
why did you choose to come to America and practice medicine instead
of practicing under a superior European system? Was it the higher salaries
that doctors command in this country or the freedom to be your own boss?
Please elaborate because you don't seem happy with our system.
Let's discuss health care
I am not alone with
my very strong opinion that a progressive society help everyone who
is ill. I just wish a few readers find something to comment or criticize
in my article in order to get the discussion going, no matter how limited,
no matter how small the circle.
closer examination, maybe lawyers aren't the problem after all
Rejoice, you all!
We don't have a Lawyers' Day, but we do have the nearest thing, namely
Law Day, on May 1 of each year. This day, which we honor by working,
recognizes our system of law, our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and
the liberty we all enjoy under our system of government. Many communities
take advantage of that day to honor and thank law enforcement officers
and others whose devotion to the law and personal courage deserve our
stick to the real issues
I would like to
personally thank Mr. Aleshire for his critical evaluation of my criticisms
regarding certain critical aspects of our local government (The Citizen,
June 27). His cynical commentary on pessimism is reminiscent of the
man that once stated that there is absolutely no such thing as absolutes.
