I have thought about this all weekend and simply cannot let it slide. On Friday, Jan. 10 there was an article in "Our View." I have no idea who wrote the piece, but they, glaringly, solidified their view with two words.
Talented Rufus Ward indicated in his column in Sunday's Dispatch that the British last fought the Battle of New Orleans on Jan. 8, 1815. I rarely question Rufus' capabilities in the history category. However, here I must point out that there is currently being waged another battle of New Orleans with the British.
If you happen to be one of those who enjoy politics as a blood sport, 2014's midterm election promises to be a carnival of gore. And that's just in the Republican Party. Democrats must be giddy.
Commentary on Sunday's paper Whoo-Whee! Where do I start?
The LCSD (Lowndes County School District) held its board meeting at West Lowndes Elementary on Dec. 9, 2013m at 5:30 pm. There are many changes proposed regarding the Lowndes County Schools. One that concerns me the most are the changes that will occur at the West Lowndes Schools. Our children at West Lowndes Middle School will be moved to the High School.
At Sale Elementary we are collecting shoes and clothes that we have outgrown.
What is going on? It seems like in many (Democrat-led) government entities the best and brightest, most effective and most experienced leaders are being summarily fired by Democrat bosses, for little to no reason. President Obama has purged our military of top generals and admirals, demoralizing and weakening our Armed Forces. Why?
I read with doubtful thoughts the article in Friday's paper of the upcoming retreat. Instead of spending $1500 of taxpayer's money for rental of Plymouth Bluff and Hardwick's fee, why couldn't they have had the retreat at the Trotter Center.
