Wal-Mart Grand Re-Opening Set

Sandersville's Wal-mart has been remodeled.

Some changes include: new layout, color scheme and signage, an expanded electronics department, a new seasonal space, added groceries including a gluten-free section.

The grand-reopening ceremony is scheduled for Friday, May 20 at 7:30 a.m. after a three-month remodeling project.

The ceremony will end with a ribbon cutting . The store’s seven original associates, who have worked at the store since its 1988 opening, will cut the ribbon. Miss Washington County Denisha Harper, whose mother and grandmother are associates at the Sandersville store, will perform the national anthem. The Washington County High School JROTC will present the colors, and the school’s band will perform. 

bin Laden photo thoughts?

CBS News just reported that President Obama told their reporter he would not release photos of Osama bin Laden's corpse.

"We don't trot out this stuff as trophies," Obama told CBS, according to quotes provided by White House press secretary Jay Carney. "We don't need to spike the football."

Obama also said release of the gruesome photos could become "an incitement to additional violence" and be used by jihadists as "a propaganda tool."

"That's not who we are," Obama said.

How do you feel about this? Are we owed this information? Why or why not?
