The perils of ‘assisted death’

Recently a 104-year old Australian scientist killed himself in Switzerland and somehow attracted a huge amount of attention to his cause. Australia doesn’t allow physician-assisted suicide and so the scientist, David Goodall, raised $20,000 to go to the land of cuckoo clocks and have his life exterminated on his own terms. I sympathize massively with […]

Don’t drop Rosemond

I have lived in Peachtree City for the last 20 years and have never corresponded with your newspaper but I felt compelled to urge you to NOT drop John Rosemond’s column from your paper as David Aycock urges in the May 16 issue. I was happily surprised to see Rosemond’s column in your paper and […]

It would be helpful to all concerned if there could be some dialogue among all interested parties, the school system, parents, and taxpayers. There are three alternatives currently under discussion by the Fayette County Board of Education: […]

What is right age for buying a gun?

The Liberal/Democrats continue to pursue a change to the age that a person can legally purchase a gun/rifle in this country. Now it appears that the age of 21 is the new target/objective.
