Citizen of the Week: Howard Moore
Sometimes, it’s the little things in life that get noticed.
When a reader came by The Daily Citizen recently to tell us about a resident at Wood Dale Health and Rehabilitation who takes the facility’s United States flag to its place every day, and removes it when appropriate — rain or shine — we decided to find out a little more about him.
Letter: Irrefutably wrong
Recently the national debt was discussed in the dialogue section of The New York Times. As it turns out, when paying the debt down, we should do so very carefully and very slowly. America has only completely paid the debt one time (1835) but that was followed by one of the longest depressions in our history. Only six times have we balanced the budget and had a surplus for more than three years, followed by debt reduction and all followed by depressions. The Great Depression followed debt reduction of 41 percent from 1919-1930.
Letter: They will not work, Uncle Sam
They will not work, Uncle Sam, not for their toast not for their jam.

I was 15 and a sophomore in high school when I learned to waltz.
Mark Millican: They’re ba-ack!
It’s felt that way if you’ve worked in downtown Ellijay the last couple of weeks, especially on Fridays.
Charles Oliver: Making government work look easy
I’m not sure how any of America’s top elected officials spent their weekend.
Letter: Taking advantage of our children
The House of Representatives’ job is to control spending, but raising the debt ceiling is stealing.
