Maybe it's not the schools afterall

I am trying to remember when our public school system became an inferior way to learn to read, write and cipher. Maybe public schools have always been low-grade, but I must have missed the cue because I got a pretty good education.

Don't punish business with tax reform

As a legislator here in Georgia who chairs a committee dedicated to fostering greater economic development and growth, I am completely behind the concept of finally reforming our overly complicated and burdensome tax code. This effort is long overdue in Washington, and if done the right way, tax reform could result in strong economic growth for decades to come.

To be understood, seek to understand

In 1943, Abraham Maslow wrote a paper titled "A Theory of Human Motivation." In it, Maslow described a pyramid-shaped figure, representing the most basic needs of humans and what needs take precedence over others.

Fraudulent checks were a surprise

Editor: I was surprised to read the front-page story in the Sept. 21 edition about the fraudulent check problem the Bryan County Tax Commissioner had. "Positive Pay" is a standard feature in most business checking accounts these days, and would have stopped any such fraudulent check from clearing the tax commissioner's bank account. The office I work for in Savannah has used this for years, and it has successfully stopped several similar instances on our account.

Garden Club says many thanks

Editor: Thank you, thank you, thank you-that's what all the members of the Richmond Hill Garden Club are saying in response to the community's support of last Saturday's 18th Annual Pumpkin Patch. It was the biggest and best ever. More people came and more pumpkins left to find new homes throughout the community than at any of the previous Pumpkin Patches. The garden club is truly grateful to those who attended, those who helped us publicize and arrange the occasion, and those who volunteered at the event itself.
