Requiem for teacher who loved democracy - Diane Wagner

I'm tempted to use his name, but there's an off chance that he's still alive.

Letting children run the home - R.H. Joseph

Once again my fellow Americans are failing to consider the big picture, concerning themselves instead with a subject more easily encompassed conceptually: the behavior of one seriously squirrelly individual.

In defense of Elderly Gentleman Winter - Clay Wilson

I don't ordinarily write a column in response to a colleague's column.

Stand forth, anonymous coward - Ed Brock

What kind of weak ninny seeks anonymous publicity?

Haunted ?trip' leaves real scars - Zach Porter

When I was a toddler I fell out the second story window of my home. My parents recovered me from the pine island below with only a busted lip. A few years later I had pneumonia. After that I crashed my bike as often as I could, with just a few scratches to show for my wild stunts. I've swung from vines across creeks, been white water rafting, traveled to rural Central American villages, skied steep, wide open Colorado bowls, and finally, plowed into oncoming traffic at 45 mph (not my fault by the way). And after 25 years without a major scar, I finally take a spill at the haunted house on Halloween, followed by a trip to the emergency room for six stitches.

DOT offers advice for falling objects - Tamara Boatwright

?Comfortably south of Atlanta' - April Avison

We usually reserve breaking news for the front page, but I felt it would be appropriate to announce some news in this space. The Henry County Chamber of Commerce recently completed an intense branding project, compiling surveys and information submitted by those who live here and those who travel here. The result is Henry County's new tagline: "Comfortably south of Atlanta."

Louisianaizing a Louisiana boy - Bob Paslay

I loaned one of our newest reporters a copy of "Confederacy of Dunces" to read since he is from Louisiana. And as soon as he is through I plan to bring in one of my dog-eared copies of Robert Penn Warren's "All the King's Men."

Chamber to hold Veterans Day luncheon

Scaring up old traditions on Halloween - Rob Felt

Only one night a year can bring together the smells of waxy chocolate and granulated sugar with those of latex, grease paint and sweaty kids. Add to this a crisp twilight breeze that hints at winter and the rustle of fallen brown leaves underfoot. With all the kinetic force of a 5th birthday party and more explosively delivered sucrose than a pi?ata, it's here ? Halloween!

?Speared' by annoying, suggestive e-mail ads - Greg Gelpi

Advertising has gone mad. The other day I received an email from someone, a person who makes it a point to dress modestly as prescribed by her religious beliefs.
