Thanks for sharing
I definitely discerned a reflection of Christ from Ms. Anderson's heartfelt thoughts, while feeling so sorry for “the frog that is unknowingly boiled to death.”
Back in the mid-’80s on a hot summer Sunday afternoon picking up some kids and youth on my non- A/C church bus in southeast Alabama, I was approaching a street sign that stated, “Slow Church,” when little fatherless Penny asked me, “Brother Mike, is that a slow church?”
Thank you, Americus Times-Recorder for sharing your newspaper online.
Say no more to Yates
This bantering with Ex-Police Chief Mike Yates who is way out in Arkansas, is a waste of the valuable space in the Times-Recorder "Opinion"column so I will not engage in this useless volleying any more after this short note.
Mike Yates is correct that when the people of Sumter County District 1 last voted for their County Commissioner, they said Al Hurley was the representative they wanted, not J. Mel Brown. In elections one person wins and one loses.
But unlike the local NAACP treatment of Mike Yates, the voters did not 'boot" me and run me out of town. I wasn't so despised and unwanted that I was not allowed to continue living in beautiful Americus. But some good came of this. James Green a LOCAL and more capable man was appointed Americus chief of police. James is a tall man with a good disposition and pleasant smile.
J. Mel Brown
