Sugar Bowl: Disabled assistant to make trip with Warriors

HONOLULU - He spends hours on the football field, but his feet never touch the turf. His specialty is dissecting offenses, but he's never played a down.

Munson's greatest call: 'Run, Lindsay'

For more than four decades, the gravelly voice of Larry Munson has begged his beloved Georgia Bulldogs to hunker down. Nearly every significant play since 1966 has a classic Munson play-by-play call, from Rex Robinson's thrilling field goal against Kentucky, to Herschel Walker's first touchdown, to sugar falling from the sky in Auburn and hobnail boots smashing noses in Knoxville.

Your views: Can Democrats win White House from the far left?

The disarray of the Democrat party can best be seen in the weak candidates seeking the party's presidential nomination. The party who could once offer political giants for high office must now settle for the strongest of the weak.

Your Views: Lower standards will jeopardize our water quality

Not only does a proposed rule change worry environmentalists, it scares this private citizen. I taught school for many years, and as a science major, I have had many opportunities to titrate water all over Hall, Dawson and Lumpkin counties. In my experience, I found very few streams, springs, rivers, etc. that had the amount of oxygen levels needed. Some did not have enough oxygen to support minnows, not to mention fish.

Your Views: Mussels are lousy to eat and taking our water

OK, so I've never had a great relationship with mussels. My first experience with them, at Charley's Crab in Washington, D.C., led to another first experience: food poisoning.

Your Views: Highway billboards could block out sun

I want to complain about the billboards on Interstate 985. Is it just me or am I the only one that is having a hard time reading the very important messages thereon? Sure, I can read them once I am right under them, but what about when I can see them a mile or more ahead but can't make out a word?

Your Views: There’s no good reason for vote for any Democrat in fall election

When you add it all up, the steady stream of lies from the White House, the Democratic party and its supporters, the liberal left media, there is only one answer: There is NO Democratic candidate worthy of even a single vote. In fact, I don't see how a Democrat could vote for himself or herself.
