    RICHARDSON: An accounting

    It’s sometimes funny how facts can be misconstrued. People twist history to their liking because they understand few people will remember what actually happened or take the time to research what happened.

    RICHARDSON: The way we were

    In July 1994, during our days without water following the flood, I wrote: “As I drove through Macon the other morning, everything was all so normal. Roads, at least the ones I travel, were open and clear and, on the surface, this could be any other hot, humid July day in Middle Georgia. But...
