On Dec. 29, 2013 my mother, Shirley “Ann” Wilson, was admitted to the Medical Center of Central Georgia with gastrointestinal problems. Since that night, she has been in the hospital several times and, there are some people I would like to personally thank for the awesome care they gave my mother. First of all, Dr. Danny Vaughn, M.D. and his staff (nurse Allysa) are the most compassionate and caring people. They have always kept me informed of mama’s health concerns and offered guidance as to the course of action to get her feeling better. There was the young gentleman (employee of MCCG, Allen Dwight) who took time away from his personal break to help me locate a wheel chair and push mama into the hospital for me. The nurses on 3 Main and 9 Main at MCCG are the best and Central Georgia Rehab are also great.
I want to thank my Aunt Trudy Beasley, brother Bobby, daughter Whitney and niece Chelsea, for staying with mama so I could take care of things, or to just give me a break from the hospital room. My husband, Bobby, has been my rock that I could depend on for comfort and understanding. Tracy, with Central Georgia Home Health saved my mother’s life by recognizing the symptoms of pulmonary embolism and insisting my sister-in-law (Lesley) and I take mama to the hospital. Thank you from my heart.

Never miss a local story.
Living in ignorance
Please tell me where Mr. D.T. Wallace found out about living cells while he was waiting for science to catch up with the Bible? The Bible is an novel with great stories, but it is not the word of God. The Bible was written somewhere between 800 and 3,000 years ago by very superstitious men. It is not something to base our lives on.
Man evolved a brain to analyze and examine the cosmos, believing just any thing because it promises that you will live forever simply leaves one in ignorance.
-- Thomas Spence
Not another activist
Recently I saw an ad for Michelle Nunn that said all the right things. I was actually going to vote for her based upon her promises which were great. Then I remembered another community activist and how he promised just about everything to everyone. Thus, I realized we do not need another community activist, especially with the way our country is slowly reacting instead of leading.

Taking back power
Will the states ever take back control from the federal government? Years ago, it was the kind of toilets we could buy as though was a water crisis everywhere. Then it was the incandescent light bulb, as though they generated power and had to ration it. Next it was mandating everyone, or their employers, to buy health insurance that included birth control. Birth control is for pleasure without consequence. Now the fed is telling schools how many bake sales they can have or federal funds will be withheld. The federal Department of Education needs to be abolished. What sense does it make to send a dollar of tax money to the federal government then, after they take a good portion off the top to run the bureaucracy, they send the rest back with strings attached.
With all that is going on around the world and even at our southern border, the federal government needs to stop overriding our constitutional authority and let the states and the people control their destinies. In other words, obey the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
