Peggy Holcomb, Oconee County's Tourism Director (and so much more) is featured in this Sunday's "From a Tiny Acorn: Stories from Childhood," a lovely afternoon event that benefits the local non-profit Children First. The summer series, now in its third year, delves into the life and times of iconic figures in our area.

Kay Keller, President of the Oconee County Chamber of Commerce, will interview Peggy on stage about how family, teachers, cultural factors and more shaped Pegg's success and her interest in community building.

The conversation takes place at 3 PM in in the historic Meeting House (the former sanctuary of Prince Avenue Baptist Church) at Piedmont College (595 Prince Avenue). The suggested donation of $10 is tax deductible.

Refreshments after the conversation are provided by Trumps Catering. It's quite a fun event!

Come and celebrate Peggy — and celebrate and support the court-appointed special advocate (CASA) program and other services provided by Children First!

Pat Priest

Save the Date - DPG State Dinnner - Sept. 26

I could care less whether they call this the Jefferson-Jackson dinner, the Carter-Nunn dinner, or the Georgia Democratic Party needs money dinner, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is an amazing speaker, and I think she would make a better President than Hilary, Bernie or Elizabeth Warren.

Saturday, September 26, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta
Guest speaker – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar
(Ticketing information to come)
Dan,
  
The Democratic Party of Georgia is pleased to invite you to the Democratic Party of Georgia State Dinner, to be held on Saturday, September 26, at the Hyatt Regency.
And we are thrilled to announce that U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar will deliver our keynote address.
Senator Klobuchar was the first woman elected to represent Minnesota in the U.S. Senate. She's a champion of our Democratic values, from creating good jobs to protecting civil rights to improving public education. A gifted public servant and staunch advocate of progressive values, Sen. Klobuchar appeared on a recent list of women most likely to become President and is often mentioned as a potential Supreme Court nominee.
Plus, I hear she gives a helluva barnburner of a speech.
Georgia could learn a lot from Minnesota—they've expanded Medicaid, invested in infrastructure, made education and job training priorities, and asked those at the top to pay their fair share.
Senator Klobuchar's address will cap off an evening filled with fellowship, inspirational words from Georgia Democratic leaders…and a few surprises we have up our sleeves.
This dinner is more than just a fundraiser—it's an opportunity for us to gather together, break bread, and reaffirm our commitment to build a better future for our state. 
Georgia has left too many people behind, and it's up to us—the Democratic community—to right the GOP's wrongs. Next year, we must elect Democrats up and down the ballot. Democrats who will stand for our values. Unwavering and unapologetic.
So join Sen. Klobuchar, our Party leaders, and me in forging a new Georgia Democratic majority. Mark September 26 on your calendars and witness what's sure to be a memorable evening. 
I look forward to seeing you there, 
DuBose Porter
Chair, Democratic Party of Georgia
The Democratic Party of Georgia State Dinner is the dinner formerly known as the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner.

The Des Moines Register calls for Trump to end his campaign

t's time for Donald Trump to drop out of the race for president of the United States.

People
who run for public office typically perform a great public service,
regardless of whether they win on Election Day. That's particularly true
of presidential candidates, most of whom must devote two years of their
lives to hard-fought campaigns that involve staggering personal and
financial sacrifices, all in an effort to serve their country.

And then there's Trump.

In the five weeks since he announced his campaign to seek the GOP
nomination for president, Trump has been more focused on promoting
himself, and his brand, than in addressing the problems facing the
nation. If he were merely a self-absorbed, B-list celebrity, his
unchecked ego could be tolerated as a source of mild amusement. But he
now wants to become president, which means that he aspires to be the
leader of the free world and the keeper of our nuclear launch codes.

That
is problematic, because Trump, by every indication, seems wholly
unqualified to sit in the White House. If he had not already
disqualified himself through his attempts to demonize immigrants as
rapists and drug dealers, he certainly did so by questioning the war
record of John McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona.

McCain is an American hero. During the Vietnam War, he spent more than
five years being tortured as a prisoner of war, and he refused early
release unless every man captured before him was released as well.
Trump, on the other hand, didn't serve in the military, partly because,
as he puts it, he was "not a big fan of the Vietnam War." But that
didn't stop him from trashing McCain at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames on Saturday.

"He's not a war hero," Trump sniffed. Amid scattered booing, Trump
decided to double-down: "He's a war hero because he was captured. I like
people that weren't captured."

Then, perhaps sensing the ground
was opening up underneath him, Trump tried to back-pedal while
continuing to bloviate. "I believe perhaps he is a war hero," he said,
"but right now — he said some very bad things about a lot of people."

If Trump, our would-be commander in chief, doesn't like POWs, how does he feel about men and women killed in action?

His
comments were not merely offensive, they were disgraceful. So much so,
in fact, that they threaten to derail not just his campaign, but the
manner in which we choose our nominees for president. By using his
considerable wealth, his celebrity status, and his mouth to draw
attention to himself, rather than to raise awareness of the issues
facing America, he has coarsened our political dialogue and cheapened
the electoral process.

He has become "the distraction with traction" — a feckless blowhard
who can generate headlines, name recognition and polling numbers not by
provoking thought, but by provoking outrage.

In just five weeks,
he has polluted the political waters to such an extent that serious
candidates who actually have the credentials to serve as president can't
get their message across to voters. In fact, some of them can't even
win a spot in one of the upcoming debates, since those slots are
reserved for candidates leading in the polls.

Last week, just
before he decided to go after McCain, Trump was at the top of at least
one national poll. But being electable is not the same as being
qualified, and Trump has proven himself not only unfit to hold office,
but unfit to stand on the same stage as his Republican opponents.

The best way Donald Trump can serve his country is by apologizing to McCain and terminating this ill-conceived campaign.
