Nichols: Is war in Afghanistan a repeat of Vietnam?

Perhaps the most important decision in the first year of Barack Obama's presidency is his answer to the request of his main commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, for some 30,000 to 40,000 more troops to be added to the 68,000 troops already approved.

Yarbrough: US Muslims can’t always have it both ways

On the eve of Veterans Day, the speaker at our Optimist Club meeting was a most appropriate one. Bill Fletcher is a Gainesville man who, as a 21-year-old fought in the Battle of the Bulge.

Cornelius: Religious voices vital to our public life

Religious believers have long been wrongly attacked for "unconstitutional" meddling in politics and government when in reality their politicking and opining were nothing of the sort.

Crawford: Health care debate won’t end soon

If you're sick and tired of all the shouting and bickering about health care reform, I've got some bad news for you. The issue will continue dominating the news for the next several weeks as Congress tries to decide which version of a health care reform bill it finally will adopt.

Oglesby: Radiation, isolation team up to conquer cancer

Yarbrough: Letter is an apt tribute to our armed forces

My friend, Sam Griffin, the retired publisher of the Bainbridge Post-Searchlight, recently shared a letter written to him in 1942 by his father, Capt. Marvin Griffin, later to be governor of Georgia, as he and his men, members of the Georgia National Guard's 101st Coast Artillery/Anti-Aircraft Battalion, were preparing to embark for Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea.

Corn: Celebrating a true maestro of music and joy

This Saturday, we will celebrate the life of Jimmy Cutrell, who died Oct. 28, and I feel that he deserves more than a passing mention in the town to which he dedicated many of his most productive years.

King: Evil indeed lurks in our valley

A number of years ago, maybe in the 1980s, I paid a visit to a friend in New York state who taught English at a local college. I was with her the day the class assignment included a story about the Holocaust.

Nichols: Tales of more travels, from Israel to Machu Picchu

As a teacher of international politics, I had to go overseas and see for myself how foreign governments worked, how culture and economics produced competition that was sometimes good, sometimes bad.

Yarbrough: To a wise son, from a grateful dad

I am not going to tell you how old he is because he might not want you to know. So, I will just tell you that on his birthday next week, the last number will have a "zero" behind it and he was born as Dwight Eisenhower was going out of office and John F. Kennedy was coming in. You can figure out the rest.

Glazer: This Halloween, trade scaring for a little caring

I love Halloween but this year my feelings are a little bittersweet. On Saturday I'll be helping my youngest daughter get ready for a homecoming dance rather than trick-or-treating. It's the first year we haven't spent the weeks leading up to Oct. 31 in a costume-creating frenzy.

Crawford: 9th District race draws most interest so far

You would think people would be fired up about the congressional races on tap for next year, considering that Republicans will be trying to reverse their election losses of 2006 and 2008 while Democrats will be trying to protect their majority status.
