Editorial: No remedy from Capitol for ailing kids

As we assess what the Georgia General Assembly accomplished in its now-concluded 40-day session, one key bill that didn't get passed was a missed opportunity to help many in our state: The push to expand availability of a cannabis oil derivative for those who endure seizure disorders.

Letter: Accused Scoutmaster, others have violated community’s trust

Letter: Scouts abuse case a sad event, would have been handled differently today

Today at First Baptist Church, we are in a state of deep regret and sadness. In recent days, we learned beyond any doubt that several decades ago some acts of harm against several of our youth occurred through our scouting program.
