Who's feeling the chill? The temperature of the Tommy Hilfiger brand has plummeted by several degrees. Hear that wheezing sound? That's hot air seeping out of a high-flying image. And understand this: Turning stone cold in the fashion industry can be more exasperating than bankruptcy, which at least allows you to cut your losses and move on.

Tornadoes rip through Georgia
CAMILLA, Ga. -- When the wind died down and the sun began to shine, the debris left behind by yesterday's tornado looked like trash junk tossed about in peculiar ways in fields and backyards. But a closer examination of the things spewed out in the tornado's wake reveals a strange, sickening characteristic of fatal twisters like those that struck several communities in Southwest Georgia yesterday: The ability of the wind tunnels to expose the lives and the daily doings of the people they victimize. Todd Harrell, for instance, was an Army veteran who liked to hunt. The storm that wiped out his home and his family yesterday blew camoflauge coats, rifles, a Chevy pickup and a splintered wooden chest labeled ``Harrell, T.'' into a field of kale and collard greens growing behind the Harrell home about 10 miles north of Cairo.

Bush answers questions in North Augusta
NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. -- If he needed a mid-morning perk-me-up on a grueling campaign trail, Texas Gov. George W. Bush got one Monday in North Augusta. More than 1,000 people turned out for a question-and-answer session with the candidate, who's running hard to maintain his lead in South Carolina with its crucial Republican primary just days away. Historically, whoever wins in South Carolina gets the GOP nomination. Bush told an adoring crowd that he learned his lesson well after losing a run for Congress in Texas in 1978. Afterward a woman in his hometown told him she hadn't voted for him because he never asked her to. -- The Augusta Chronicle

Declares Confederates 'not traitors'
In his Jan. 26 letter (``Says battle flag flew over `traitors'''), Ken Gott slandered our ancestors by his characterization of them as traitors. This is strange coming from one who probably never heard a shot fired in anger. He says that the South fought primarily to retain slavery and this of course was one of the underlying causes of the war. But one must admit that war was inevitable between the sections because of many disagreements and equal inability to compromise. K. Watson, Augusta

The upcoming presidential election is most important! It will determine whether or not we will remain a free nation, or if our sovereignty is turned over to the United Nations. Mildred W. McNair, Aiken

Re the letter by W. Parker ``Slams deviant lifestyle,'' I would like him to know that no one knows how AIDS got started in this country. However, if AIDS is a punishment from God for deviant sexual behavior, why is it that heterosexuals are the fastest growing group in America contracting it? Unfortunately thousands have died needlessly from AIDS. I do not wish this horrible death on homosexuals, heterosexuals or even pseudo Christians. Don Tate, Evans

Smells fraud in WWII memorial drive
There is a big campaign underway with TV and radio advertisements to build a World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. Yes, the WWII veterans deserve a lot of credit; but let's remember, there are WWII memorials all over the world. Hawaii is the site of two big WWII memorials: Punch Bowl Cemetery and the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial, which is the most popular national park in this country. Nearly every courthouse in the country has a WWII memorial. There are numerous crossroads that have some sort of memorial to WWII. There are football stadiums commemorating WWII veterans. Allen w. Johnson, Augusta

Hits 'slick' senator's candidacy
There are some things about Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., that bother me in his run for the presidency. First, there is seldom anymention of his being one of the ``Keating Five'' -- a scandal in itself. Then, there is the factor of his ``hero'' status as a P.O.W. I saw him on television saying that he was sorry that he had signed a confession of guilt (being a war criminal) while in the Hanoi Hilton. William Shackelford, North Augusta
