PTC sewer system has a smelly history

After many discussions following my last letter to the editor on why we should avert a devastating outcome regarding Peachtree City’s excess sewage capacity, I realize there are citizens who do not understand the situation. That is understandable since the history of the subject dates back several decades. For historical perspective, the sewer system was […]

Stop calling me

I am currently on the “do not call” list. This is a list for people who don’t want to have to deal with unwanted calls. I’m one of them, yet, I often receive such calls up to several times daily. A few examples are offering extended coverage on my vehicle, extending my credit, and threatening […]

How about a Republican universal healthcare plan?

[In] the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, we get a front row seat to professional level backpedaling and hypocrisy in action by Republicans who look as though they never seriously thought they’d have to have a repeal and replace plan. Turns out, most people actually like Obamacare, once they understand what it actually is and […]

Some wrong beliefs about engineering in PTC

The first misconception is that we need a new spillway, and the second is that corrugated metal pipe causes roadway washouts. The new spillway to be built is to withstand a 100-year flood and will give a new golf cart path at a cost of approximately $3 million. Those who propose the new construction fail […]

Beware a president who will say anything

Postal problems persist in PTC

There seems to be no limit to the incompetence and callous attitude displayed by the Post Office in Peachtree City. If it wasn’t already bad enough receiving mangled mail, misdelivered mail, “normal delivery” anywhere between 10:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m., and our mailbox being left open on a regular basis, it is now too much […]

MHS, WHS athletes booted off new turf

I throw shot put, hammer, weight, and discus. I know what you are thinking. No, I am not Thor, but I am a 16-year-old with a passion — a passion that I cannot fully pursue because of the lack of field event equipment at my high school. I even started the season with hopes of […]

GOP reform effort fails to lower costs

David Browning’s letter of March 15 was on target. After spending 25 years in the healthcare field, most of it related to making hospitals more efficient and effective, I have become skeptical of many of Washington’s reform efforts, especially by the GOP, but also by some Democrats. The current situation is a mess. The Commonwealth […]

Principal Roy Rabold

Principal Roy Rabold

Mr. Roy Rabold, principal of Whitewater High School, announced that he plans to retire this year. After 42 years in education, with 31 of those years in Fayette County, he had some words of wisdom to share. His concerns about the future of education were threefold: teaching time, discipline, and the proliferation of laws, rules, […]
