Little impact from gay marriage
Posted: July 01, 2015 - 12:00 am

I remember a few months back when my son saw two men kissing. He asked me why they were doing that and I said that it was because it made them happy, just like when mommy and daddy kiss. That was about the impact same-sex relations has on a 7-year-old and, in reality, that is about the extent of it for the rest of us as well.

Charleston not about race, guns
Posted: June 24, 2015 - 12:00 am

Why can we not just simply let a tragedy be a moment for reflection and prayer instead of a race to see who can put their foot in their mouth the fastest?

Meeting a hero dealing with disease
Posted: June 17, 2015 - 12:00 am

In this business, much like life, it is easy to come across heroes and villains. Thankfully there are just enough heroes to make it seem like the world is good, though to be a hero, there is usually some sort of uphill battle in life. But through resilience, a hero rises above.

Political bickering can be good, but ...
Posted: June 10, 2015 - 12:00 am

There are times when you can just tell politicians are at odds. And that was the case Monday night as Mayor Dan Curry noted the Loganville leaders were airing out their “dirty laundry.”

Getting next generation involved

It was kind of a joke when Loganville Mayor Dan Curry said he needed to watch his back at a recent council meeting.

Applauding efforts of fire department
Posted: May 20, 2015 - 12:00 am

So a few years back I fulfilled that childhood dream of mine and played firefighter. It was one of those experiences you never forget, and for a group of high school students, it is proving to be a stepping stone like no other. There is something to be said about hands-on training, and the Walton County Fire Rescue department is providing that unique experience.

Looking for a few good veterans
Posted: May 06, 2015 - 12:00 am

Ben Malcom left the confines of Walton County for North Georgia College, coming out as a lieutenant and then sent to South Korea. He was one of the first Green Berets before they even had green berets, earned a Silver Star and probably has a few stories he could tell you while working with the CIA and Pentagon — but then he would have to kill you.

Supporting the Walk of Heroes
Posted: April 29, 2015 - 12:00 am

While there is certainly a lot taking place locally on an effort to establish a memorial dedicated to veterans of Walton County, there is another great effort taking place up Highway 20 south of Loganville in Rockdale County that is something that is deserving of some attention.
