The work is completed on the long national nightmare which is known as the Simonton Bridge Whitehall Hill shaving. But just as I was taking it today at the height of the worst summer squash all I've seen in quite some time, I saw a small down tree. Lucky for me the car that was in front of me stopped right on top of the tree or next to it and I was able to veer around them, especially after a car passed the other way

To better understand the experiences of our veterans who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Oconee Democrats' community book group is reading Phil Klay's "Redeployment: Stories" in July. While the book is fiction and relatively new, it's already being called a classic and one of the best books ever written about war.The author, a U.S. Marine, served in Iraq's Anbar Province for more than a year.The book has received stellar reviews — and lots of awards, including the National Book Award for Fiction. Here's the citation accompanying Klay's National Book Award:In these thematically linked stories, Phil Klay creates a kaleidoscopic vision of conflict and homecoming. With a strikingly original set of voices, Klay inhabits the hearts of grunts, mortuary workers, chaplains, psy-ops officers, and civilian bureaucrats muddling through doomed reconstruction projects. If all wars ultimately find their own Homer, this brutal, piercing, sometimes darkly funny collection stakes Klay's claim for consideration as the quintessential storyteller of America's Iraq conflict.We'll meet Wednesday, July 29th, upstairs at Chops and Hops in Watkinsville. The discussion starts at 7, but most of us arrive early to catch up with one another and order dinner.Join us to talk about our wars and our veterans!
