Letter: The real ‘War on Women’

President Obama’s campaign accuses opponents of conducting a ‘war on women’, a slogan ginned up to stimulate the president’s liberal supporters. As usual a policy disagreement becomes a ‘war’ or a ‘hate crime’. Indeed women are being victimized but not in the way portrayed. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the largest abortion provider in America, zealously supported by the Obama administration, performs hundreds of thousands of abortions annually. PPFA’s annual budget exceeds $1 billion, and roughly 46 percent comes from federal, state and local government. Approximately half of those abortions destroy unborn girls; that’s the real war...

Field hockey falls in playoff, 4-0

U-32 displayed skillful tackling, well-connected passing and balanced scoring while dispatching Milton 4-0 in Friday’s Division II field hockey quarterfinal. The No. 2 Raiders dominated the first half and took a 3-0 lead into the break. Abby Daniels scored first for U-32 at 21:57.

Daniels and Woolaver switched roles to produce the Raiders’ second goal at 10:48. Wolaver sent the rebound of Daniels shot...

Waiting for turbines atop Georgia Mtn.

Hard-hatted workers talked about road trips and what to eat for dinner while waiting for three 164-foot turbine blades to arrive atop Georgia Mountain last Wednesday. Around noon, all the beeps, scrapes and whirs of a construction zone had ceased. A 130-ton crane sat near a freshly graded swath of dirt where the blades would be laid. All was quiet atop the ridgeline that spans between Milton and Georgia, the soon-to-be site of four, 2.5-megawatt turbines. It was lunchtime at the Georgia Mountain Community Wind Project. Earlier in the day, Project Manager Martha Staskus’ excitement was palatable as she...
