After firemen saw heavy smoke on the north end of Eastman, a fire truck was dispatched to check out the situation. When the fire truck reached Dorough Street, Eastman Fireman Johnny Howell saw that the house at 5709 was on fire, with several people standing around watching. Howell called back to the fire department for assistance. Fire had engulfed the rear of the wood frame house. Eastman firemen arrived and extinguished the flames. The house was unoccupied and was considered a total loss. The cause of the fire was unknown at press time. The fire occurred at approximately 4:27 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15.

The very savvy John Derbyshire suggests a Coulter-Trump Republican ticket. What, you haven’t seen Mr. Derbyshire on television, even on overrated supposedly “conservative” (actually loaded down with liberals) Fox News? Neither have I. Maybe they’re keeping him off the air – he makes too much sense.
Who needs green cards and other perks that illegals want and need to make themselves legal?
“Lawbreaking foreigners apparently get along just fine ‘in the shadows’ otherwise more of them would go home.”
Brenda Walker on VDARE.com 6-29-13
“Politics is the conspiracy of the unproductive but organized against the productive but unorganized.”
Joseph Sobran Sobran.com
Donald Trump is hated by the medialeft. So was Ronald Reagan. Good for both. The politicians to avoid and oppose are those lauded by the Left.
“Nothing controversial about the truth. But since when has the left cared about the truth. They want illegals, and they will go after anybody who thwarts their narrative.”
Pro golf great Bubba Watson tries to appease the South-bashers. Hey, Bubba, it can’t be done. You’re playing a losing game with a bunch of idiots. Bubba says he will paint over the Confederate Flag on his General Lee Dukes of Hazzard car. Please don’t do it, Bubba.
Never play the grovel-in game with the left. Ronald Reagan didn’t grovel and won big. George Bush I tried to accommodate liberals and lost. As famed economist Milton Friedman said, Reagan’s big mistake was bringing along George Bush. George always had a habit of listening to the wrong people. Ronnie was sharp; George wasn’t.
Any coaches want to explain this?: “In roughly half of the 50 states, the leading high school running backs are white. Yet 99% of the running backs in the major college football programs are black.”

I have always liked the rebel flag. I don’t buy into it being a racist thing, but a Southern thing. I supported two black Republican congressmen and a black president in 2014. I might like Republicans, but I don’t hate blacks.
The Supreme Court decision on gay marriage is not about love, but sins of the flesh. There is nothing holy about same-sex marriage. Traditional marriage, a man and a woman, is the only way.
Since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, about 50 million babies have been killed in the U.S. They take tongs and pull the legs off first, then the arms, body and head. Those babies feel pain; they are living human beings in the womb. This is murder by the hands of the government scientists who use these stem cells for research. This is sin – pure and simple.
Donald Trump is right about the border; close it! Do you want to speak English or Spanish? Obamacare will be stopped. Obama is not a king, and Hilary Clinton is not a queen.
Leviticus 20:10-17 says, “If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death.” There is evidence that America is drifting toward Godlessness. The Christian solution is not impersonal based on technology but rather it is built upon a personal solution to a personal problem. A better world can only be created through better people. Better people are produced only through the power of the Holy Spirit and the word of God.

In response to the controversy over the Confederate flag, I believe that it represents a time in our history. The history of this nation is our foundation. Chipping away at a foundation will cause the structure to collapse. Whether that foundation was made up of times of pride or trails of shame, it is what it is.
Getting rid of or hiding away the reminders of that time will not erase it from history. Clinging to reliving that time will cause us to grow stagnant. Oftentimes, we need reminders of the past in order to be thankful for the present and where we are going.
Look to God for guidance and keep moving.
Brenda P. Peacock
