    RICHARDSON: No one can suppress the vote

    Last Tuesday, as I was leaving the Georgia National Fair in Perry after attending the Senate and gubernatorial debates, there was an elderly woman at the gate. She asked me, “Who should I vote for?” I told her I couldn’t tell her who to vote for, only that she had to vote.

    RICHARDSON: A crisis in confidence

    I’m a pretty trusting guy. I don’t believe in conspiracy theories as a rule and I don’t think my government is out to get me. I’m not one who thinks the federal government or governments in general are inherently inept. I don’t believe the majority of large organizations...

    RICHARDSON: Options and opportunities

    I asked the young man sitting to my left when would he graduate from Northeast High School. He replied, “I’m in the class of 2018.” I couldn’t even do the math. My brain was in a swirl of time as I felt myself age before his very eyes. I felt like Dorian Gray’s...

    RICHARDSON: Makes you want to say hmmm

    There are some things that makes you want to say hmmm. I opened my paper Saturday, Aug. 30, to find a couple of instances. The first was the handling of the missing PTO money at SkyView Elementary. Just the week before, Eloise Maxine Reid was arrested and accused of stealing $33,975 from Vineville...

    Mike Ditka was in town last week to speak at a luncheon sponsored by the 100 Black Men of Middle Georgia, Mercer University and Roger Jackson’s Motivating Youth Foundation Inc. He used the poem “Man in the Glass” to inspire players in the audience while at the same time reminding...

    RICHARDSON: '‘It’s their own damn fault’

    I’m conflicted. Every time I sit and watch the events in Ferguson, Missouri, I feel a sharp pain in my chest.

    RICHARDSON: An accounting: Part 5

    The technology road Bibb County public schools has traveled has been full of potholes, detours and washed-out bridges. The latest controversy into what former Superintendent Romain Dallemand did or didn’t do ultimately will be decided by one or more investigations, but that’s just ...

    RICHARDSON: Children at war

    There are many studies of Ezekiel’s prophesy and ideas about the land of Magog and this bad actor named, Gog. Some say Magog is Russia, and Vladimir Putin seems to be auditioning as Gog. The fight is supposed to pit Magog against Israel. I will not add to the pile of studies here; however...
