One of the most celebrated events in the history of sports was the gold medal track victory of Jesse Owens in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Less remembered, but just as heroic, was the silver medal second place finish to Owens of Cairo’s Mack Robinson in the 200 meters. History is not kind to se…
As immediate family members and/or descendants, we wish to thank everyone at Pebble Hill Plantation that had a role in preparing for the recent exhibition opening and reception in honor of Gene Pullen, known as the resident master carver for Elisabeth Ireland Poe, whose works are housed at v…
I was surprised to hear that Mark Lastinger is leaving the newspaper and would like to add my thanks to him. He has always been supportive of many (non-partisan, of course) nature-related activities at Lost Creek Forest, Cherokee Pollinator Garden, Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve, Birdsong Na…
A significant event occurred in Thomasville a few weeks ago that received scant attention and response by the public even though it was graphically reported by this newspaper.
Thanks for everything the Thomasville Times-Enterprise did to make the 39th Annual Rose City Run Events successful. We had 1,403 to enter our events. They represented more than 50 towns and cities in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Texas, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Utah and Mexico.
If the Rev. Arthur L. Jones III didn’t wear blinders all the time, he would have noticed that the United States entered difficult days at least seven years ago.
In a recent edition of the Times-Enterprise, Ed Marshall had another in a long series of letters calling for cutting taxes in Thomas County. Over the years, he has been a persistent critic of county government. He has opposed every sales tax referendum for county government and the school sy…
On May 11, we recognize our school nurses by celebrating National School Nurse Day as a way to foster a better understanding of the role of school nurses in the educational setting. The theme this year is, “School Nurses: Better Health. Better Learning.”
Years ago, I was a Democrat, then changed to a Republican. Now I am not sure what I am. Neither party meets the criteria for making America the greatest country to live in.
Your March 27 coverage of Travis Shepherd’s 20-year mission as a scoutmaster of Troop 383 in Whigham was very informative and deserving.
As a retired technical college educator and current Thomasville Rotarian, I was pleased to read your articles in the Sunday edition about Evoqua and other industries in Thomasville. These industries are vital partners in Thomasville’s economic health and success. They offer jobs to a skilled…
The anonymity of Rant and Rave must be great for some. I do read it to get a sampling of opinions. However, I have never offered anything therein.
I certainly appreciate Dr. Kornegay taking time to answer questions and address concerns I have about ESPLOST IV. Especially since I’m a member of a demographic that receives few services and little attention from the school board, a senior citizen with no children or grandchildren in school…
In his last letter opposing the ESPLOST, Mr. Edward Marshall alleges that the local school boards have “poorly” planned and are behaving irresponsibly in calling for bonds to be issued in connection with the March 1st referendum.
In “Little Shop of Horrors,” the main character, a florist wannabe, happens upon an adorable, but strange plant from outer space. It wouldn’t eat normal plant food and it appeared on the verge of dying, but is saved when a drop of the “florist’s” blood from a pricked finger falls into its mo…
Here is an interesting exercise to see if you agree with Sen. Feinstein’s release of information about interrogation methods used against al-Qaida after 9/11.
