More Colombia aid
The Clinton administration, at the prodding of U.S. Sens. Paul Coverdell, R-Ga., Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Mike DeWine, R-Ohio, is commendably taking more aggressive steps to combat Marxist narco-terrorists in Colombia.

Constructive debate
In 1978 Bill Jackson called for modernizing Columbia County government and naming a professional county administrator. The reforms he and other visionaries implemented made the county one of the fastest-growing and attractive in Georgia.

I am not a trained firefighter as the fire chief and our firefighters are. Therefore, I must not pass judgment about the River Creek blaze until a fair and honest evaluation of the fire has been conducted. Wayne A. Huffine, Hephzibah

Getting soft on China
President Clinton is gearing up for the last big trade fight of his administration. He will try to persuade Congress to drop its annual review of whether to continue granting Red China normal trade relations status -- and to make that status permanent.
