The tale of two Tonys
Recent letters concerning the school board and Sunday alcohol sales by Tony Smith were not the Tony Smith who is employed at Jones Automatic Sprinkler Inc. While I disagree with many of the school board's recent actions, public name calling is unproductive. On Sunday alcohol sales the voters have spoken. It is time to live with it.
OK people ... are you awake? Are you sitting down? This is a story that you may just not believe whatsoever so I encourage you to investigate it and others like it to see exactly how absolutely insane some, in what is supposed to be your government, have become!
A recent news headline on Foxnews.com reads
"ICE guidelines call for taxpayer-funded transgender hormone treatments for some detainees" (Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/03/07/ice-guidelines-allow-transgender-hormone-treatments-for-detainees/#ixzz1pP1h461O) That's right people. The same taxpayer funded organization (ICE) that tells the American people that they will not deport illegal immigrants that have been identified thusly now tells us that they are going to continue to steal money from us and give it to illegal immigrants who want to change their sexual identity. Can you think of another enticement to make illegals flock here and suck up your childrens' future? Because that is exactly what this is. Wake up sleeping American before you do not have an America to wake up to!
God Bless (what's left of) America!
Seems children are smarter than the adults
I have been reading about the way our school board is acting and I can’t understand how they think their actions are good for the students. It seems like the children are smarter, by far, than the grown-ups. We spend our tax money to build the Sumter County School buildings, then have to send our children to another county to get an education. Tell me where this is right. It takes more than a nice building for children to get an education. It seems like the people of Americus and Sumter County have lost all sense of care or direction. The economy is bad, but everyone is going to have to act like they care and do their part. This has to start with our schools, If people have to take their children some place else to get an education, that’s where the jobs will be. Many people don’t act like they care because they have savings, but their savings will soon run out. Then there are those who act as if they are scared they will find work. My Daddy always told me “If it’s worth having, it’s worth working for.” He also told me that if I got my hands dirty, that’s what soap and water was for.
We need to all thank God for what we have and ask for His guiding hand.
May God bless you and keep you.

In regards to the loss of ‘Mookie’ (Beloved Dog, Walking Dead)
I wish to thank all of you who were so kind to send the cards, and words of support to the Opinion column. To the person who sent the poem “Rainbow Bridge” ... honestly, I cried. Thank you to the Times-Recorder for publishing the article. I wrote it with the intentions of warning all people to be extremely careful concerning the treatment of animals and to watch for people that may also be injured or killed.
To those who were less sympathetic, God understands my heart and why I care for unfortunate animals that seem to end up at my home. I tend to their needs in the best manner I can; with very little financially, but with all my heart. There is an Indian saying that states, “Please do not judge me until you have walked a mile in my moccasins.” Have a good day.
