A PRAYER FOR Phillip and Janie Tweety. I want you to know you are both wonderful and generous people, and your family is in our prayers and our thoughts every day. May God bless you.


I WANT TO THANK a special person who turned my pocketbook in with nothing missing at the Kentucky Fried Chicken in Waynesboro. God bless and thank you again.


THE RICHEST PEOPLE in the United States are congressmen. That is why when we go to the polls, if they have incumbent by their name, we need to vote for the other person. That is why they don’t want to raise taxes; they are the rich of America.
