Don’t be a Grinch — Shop in PTC, Fayette

Turning the corner on November means the holiday shopping season is upon us once again. It won’t be long before all the Whos down in Whoville will be clasping hands and singing in the spirit of the season.

After spending about seven months hashing through Peachtree City’s budget this year, I have a new and different perspective on our friend The Grinch. I see him sneaking around, but not with a bag slung over his shoulder. I see him driving a car and heading outside Fayette County to do his shopping. Read More»

Some lessons in reality to be drawn from last Tuesday’s elections

I would like to take this opportunity to dispel the administration’s notion that the “thumping” they got Tuesday was due to America’s inability to see or understand what’s best for them. Angry and frustrated with the economy, they took out their frustrations on the party in power. Yeah, right. Read More»

Thanks from an older voter to helpful young person at PTC precinct

Last week, while early voting, I had a most pleasant experience happen that restored my faith in today’s young people. Often, young folks of today are assumed to be selfish and inconsiderate; however, my experience proved otherwise.

I arrived at the Peachtree City Library and, because I am now using a walker, parked where I thought I would be close to the entry for early voting.

I made my way to what I thought was the correct door, wondering how I would open such a heavy door while holding on to my walker. Read More»

McIntosh play wins region, going to state

McIntosh play wins region, going to state

The McIntosh drama department has staged their production of “Bang, Bang, You’re Dead,” a few times now, (there is a free performance, donations accepted, tonight at the school at 7 p.m.), and the show always gets an emotional reaction.

“We haven’t had a show where people didn’t cry,” said McIntosh drama teacher, Tanya Gruber. “It reaches people of all ages in very different ways. Kids can empathize with characters who feel that no one is listening and parents can see elements of their relationships in the ones presented in the show.” Read More»
