America’s fights are always about freedom

It’s been my privilege the past few months to work along with pastor Dr. Knox Herdon on his American Heritage Museum. The museum is nothing but a trailer that can be hauled from place to place to display the history of America from the Revolutionary War up until the War on Terror.

No matter what time period you might be looking at inside of that museum, you’ll note that every American fighting for this nation was fighting for “freedom.” Read More»

John Munford, 41, a reporter for The Citizen since May 2000, died Sunday night at his home in Fayetteville, apparently of natural causes.

He was found in his bed Monday after he missed a noon staff meeting at the newspaper office. Two of his coworkers went to his home and got no answer at the door. They then called police, and found an open rear door to the residence.

He wrote and posted on TheCitizen.com a story about the Peachtree City Planning Commission at 8:42 p.m. Sunday, his last work for The Citizen. Apparently he died within a few hours of that posting. Read More»

It was supposed to be a budget work session to give Fayetteville financial staff guidance on the FY 2015 budget expected to receive a vote on July 17. But in the end, the July 10 work session of the Fayetteville City Council provided no direction. Two on the council spoke against a proposed millage rate increase while two were in favor of the measure, but there was no consensus on how to continue. That left finance staff with no indication how they might adjust the budget in a way that would pass muster. Read More»
