The Georgia General Assembly will soon be entering its final hectic days when a lot of legislation - except for the budget - falls through the cracks. So this is the time for lawmakers to begin separating the wheat from the chaff, passing the best bills and letting the others die or be held over until next year.

WASHINGTON -- American forces have crossed the Euphrates River and made their way 150 miles into Iraq, halfway to Baghdad, the Pentagon said Saturday.
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- In the middle of the night, after three hours of fitful sleep, they sit transfixed before the television glowing in their den. As Hashim Al-Tawil and his wife watch the skies on fire in Iraq, they're haunted by one thought: Their families are trapped there.
WASHINGTON -- The strategy of a "shock and awe" air war will have worked if the Iraqis surrender Baghdad without a fight, the author who helped coin the expression to describe the U.S.-led campaign in Iraq said Saturday.
WASHINGTON -- U.S. military leaders said Sunday they expect fighting in Iraq to intensify as coalition forces advance toward Baghdad, facing increased resistance from Saddam Hussein's troops and their possible use of chemical or biological weapons.
- Coalition forces pounded Baghdad with impunity in the first daylight air raids of the war. American forces have progressed 150 miles into Iraq, halfway to Baghdad, and American ships and warplanes have launched 500 cruise missiles and several hundred precision weapons on Iraq over the past day, the Pentagon said Saturday.
CAMP AS SAYLIYAH, Qatar -- A U.S. Patriot missile battery shot down a British fighter plane Sunday near the Iraqi border with Kuwait, killing the two fliers on board, the British military said.

Text of President Bush's remarks Sunday on the war in Iraq. He spoke to reporters upon returning to the White House from Camp David. The transcription was provided by the White House:
ABOARD THE USS KITTY HAWK -- Peering down at the battlefield from his F/A-18 Hornet, Lt. John Allison scans the ground for a single small blast, a signal from U.S. troops on the ground pointing out an Iraqi artillery post.
WASHINGTON -- The State Department protested Sunday that Russian companies sold sensitive military equipment to Iraq in the run-up to U.S.-led war against Saddam Hussein's regime.
WASHINGTON -- President Bush demanded Sunday that American troops held captive in Iraq be treated humanely, warning that Iraqis who do otherwise will be punished as war criminals.
WASHINGTON -- War has brought little change to the regulated, by-the-numbers life of President Bush.
BAGHDAD, Iraq -- Strong explosions shook the Iraqi capital after sunset Saturday, the latest in the daily dose of aerial bombardment by U.S.-led forces. The Iraqi regime asserted battle successes and maintained Saddam Hussein and his sons had "the aggression" in hand.
AN NASIRIYAH, Iraq -- U.S.-led forces suffered their worst casualties of the war Sunday in two bloody battles near An Nasiriyah that raged for hours before Iraqi resistance was vanquished. Marines said they would move around the city rather than march through it on the road to Baghdad.
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. military is moving quickly to interrogate more than 2,000 Iraqi POWs - including two generals - for information about the location of chemical and biological weapons.
WASHINGTON -- Specially trained paramilitary guerrillas and Saddam Hussein's security forces are leading the stiffest resistance to the U.S.-led invasion, trying to keep Iraqi soldiers from surrendering and organizing battlefield tricks that have inflicted casualties, U.S. and British officials said Sunday.
KUWAIT CITY -- A U.S. soldier most likely acted out of resentment Sunday when he threw grenades into tents at a 101st Airborne Division command center, killing a fellow serviceman, an Army spokesman said.
NEW YORK -- A day after massive anti-war rallies attracted thousands across the nation - including more than 100,000 people in a march down Broadway - hundreds of people gathered in Times Square and other cities Sunday to show support for the war in Iraq.

Edging closer to Iraq's hard-core defenders, U.S. and British forces besieged the southern city of Basra on Saturday and rolled to within 150 miles of Baghdad. Diplomatic complications closed off the option of a heavy invasion from the north.

This letter is in support of Mike Hunt, a Republican candidate for sheriff of Aiken County. Mike Hunt is a fine Christian man who exhibits qualities needed to be sheriff. Elizabeth B. Barranco, North Augusta, S.C.
Once again U.S. Rep. Charlie Norwood, R-Ga., has shown his true colors. Willis Clifton, Martinez, Ga.
I've known both of the Republican candidates for Aiken County sheriff for well over 20 years. During this time, including my 13 years as the Jackson chief of police, I've had an opportunity to assess their strengths and weaknesses. In my opinion, Lt. Mike Hunt of the Aiken Department of Public Safety is the best candidate. Dennis N. Rushton, Jackson, S.C.
Two recent events have helped me decide for whom I will vote in the Aiken County sheriff's race. The first was Mike Hunt's admission in a recent newspaper story that he and his campaign are working with the Irish Travelers. Douglas E. Morris, North Augusta, S.C.
The carpetbaggers are back, except they are now called the National Council of Women's Organizations. They are armed with laws they have gotten passed and legal attorneys from the American Civil Liberties Union to threaten businesses with needless lawsuits, and a preacher to make it sound right. The Rev. Grady Brown, Augusta
We want to add our support for Jody Rowland to be elected the next sheriff of Aiken County. I am sure all the candidates truly want to be sheriff, but higher education, experience, qualifications and proven leadership rank Jody Rowland the superior choice to hold such an honorable office. We do not want to let campaign promises that are not obtainable without exorbitant tax increases "muddy" the water. Sheran and Tom Proctor, North Augusta, S.C.
This whole argument about the Masters Tournament and the women's demonstration is tiresome and was unnecessary. When Augusta National Golf Club Chairman Hootie Johnson got the letter from the National Council of Women's Organizations Chairwoman Martha Burk, he should have either tossed it or sent her a note saying "good idea, we'll think it over." Instead, he sends her an in-your-face challenge through the press. This is perfect. Now she has a public issue she can play on and on. She doesn't want to just demonstrate; she wants television cameras, and they will be there at the end of Magnolia Lane. James M. Stone, Aiken, S.C.
When I consider a candidate for Aiken County sheriff, I look at moral character and relevant education and experience. I don't know all the candidates personally; they all appear to have some of these traits. Brent Rankin, North Augusta, S.C.
If the allegations that we have heard involving the University of Georgia basketball program are true, firing assistant Coach Jim Harrick Jr. was the right thing to do. As the head coach of the basketball team, it is the responsibility of his father, Jim Harrick Sr., to know what is going on with his players, and his suspension was also justified. Jack Liebowitz, Augusta
I agree with the articles in The Augusta Chronicle regarding Jody Rowland. If Aiken County residents are against crime, they will vote for Mr. Rowland to be sheriff. Michael Garner, Aiken, S.C.
Recently I saw downtown Augusta through the eyes of visitors to the city. I left that experience with a deep appreciation for what Augusta leaders have done in revitalizing downtown. Carlene Murphy, Augusta
The Aiken County Association of Fire Chiefs publicly endorsed Mike Hunt for sheriff of Aiken County on March 5. One might ask, what is the link between the association of fire chiefs and a sheriff's candidate? Mark Key, New Ellenton, S.C.
I write regarding an issue of great concern to me - upcoming pension reform legislation. Amanda R. Lang, Augusta
On March 25 we have a choice of voting for the next sheriff of Aiken County. Having lived here for the last 50 years, and Aiken having been so good to me, I would like to make a contribution to all citizens of Aiken County, and all persons passing through Aiken, by casting my vote for Michael Hunt to be our next sheriff of Aiken County. Joe B. Babb, Aiken, S.C.
As busy as President George W. Bush is, he has already gotten back with me regarding a letter I wrote to him about my organization, The America's Dialysis, Diabetic, Senior Citizen Club. Jimmie W. Barton, Langley, S.C.
On March 25 residents of Aiken County have the opportunity to vote for Jody Rowland for sheriff in the Republican primary. Henry E. Holley, Aiken, S.C.
