About 40 spectators turned out for the historic game, historic because it's the first time Georgia has played Auburn in Columbus since 1958. The Georgia-Auburn football classic was arguably the biggest sports and social event of the year in Columbus. It outgrew Memorial Stadium and left town.
The fifth annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy is a joint effort by the Young Lawyers Division, the Attorney General’s Office and the Georgia Food Bank Association, and is a statewide fund and food drive supporting local Georgia food banks. More than $5 million has been raised in five years with this campaign.
This has got to be the strangest election season I have ever seen. Seventeen Republican candidates, all politicians except one, and he wins. Another Clinton waiting to be crowned. Trump was laughed at, scorned and dismissed for months all the while winning states. Flash in the pan, he will burn out, wait till he misspeaks. Damn, he is still there. An old “socialist” from Vermont is giving Clinton a run for her coronation.
There is no finer marshal in Georgia than Muscogee County Marshal Greg Countryman. No marshal in the whole state will disagree on that. By a very large margin voters have previously shown their appreciation for the job Marshal Greg Countryman and his deputies do as certified peace officers dedicated to keeping citizens safe.
Last week when the news broke of the closing of St. Patrick's School I realized that my pastor and my parish had failed me.

Though our community faces its difficulties and challenges, it is important to pause occasionally and recognize the positive aspects Columbus does exhibit. One of these is the continuing good work provided by our law enforcement agencies. My family came to appreciate this more cogently by attending a course offered by the Citizens Law Enforcement Academy, sponsored by the Columbus Police Department.
In your article “What’s at stake in the school board elections?” I was curious since the election is a month away. Although those candidates running for office have signs up, I have seen no candidates in my area interested enough to talk to the voters.

Saturday night I had the absolute pleasure of seeing the world premiere play “Mother of Rain” brilliantly adapted from the book written by Karen Spears Zacharias. I have seen many plays here in Columbus and several parts of the world. I have to say this play was the most powerful work of art I have ever seen.
Despite the unforgettable assertion that revenge-based abuse of power on funding legislation is merely "part of the political game," most Georgians reject the concept that we should blame Senator Josh McKoon for the underhanded CSU financing snub from Governor Nathan Deal and Speaker David Ralston
