Notes on bringing up a birder

Our wait is finally over. Two weeks ago our precious baby girl was born. No reason now to envy all the new parents in the yard. We now have our own little nestling. I immediately begin to think about all of my new responsibilities as a parent as well as all of the new and exciting things I want to show her and teach her.

Lift offshore-drilling moratorium

President Barack Obama's recent move to allow seismic exploration of oil and gas reserves off the shores of Georgia and the Atlantic Coast has left many hopeful that the offshore drilling moratorium currently in place may soon be lifted. A new study by University of Wyoming energy economist Dr. Tim Considine indicates the degree to which such a move would benefit Georgians and our Mid-Atlantic counterparts.

Stadium should carry Dooley legacy

Last Saturday, while the Bulldog nation sweated out a 35-32 victory over the Tennessee Volunteers that should not have been as hard as our scholar-athletes made it, former head football coach and athletic director Vince Dooley's first team at UGA was recognized on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. As nice as that was, more - much more - needs to be done to honor the legendary Hall of Fame coach.

It's a good think to know your numbers

My good friend stopped by my office the other day, somewhat surprising me with his visit. He looked a little perplexed and indicated to me he had just found out that he had high blood pressure.You should know that my friend is in relatively good shape. He's slightly younger than me and stays very active; and he recently lost about 10 pounds by way of good dieting and exercise. I asked him how he discovered that his blood pressure was high. He said he had it taken at the dentist's office just prior to a procedure he ...

Tell me what you want to see

As a child who wanted nothing more than to grow up and become a journalist, I used to write stories for and draw out my own homemade "newspapers" to distribute to my family on Sunday mornings at breakfast. I tried to design my publications based on what I thought each of my family members might want to read. Dad's "newspaper" was about sports, and my younger sister's often featured reports on Strawberry Shortcake and her social circle.

President, Congress should work together on war

Our Constitution makes the President the commander in chief, yet gives Congress the ability to declare war. By giving a role to each branch, it clearly considers the use of force to be a shared decision.

Kindness has been 'simply amazing'

Dear Editor, It's been over a month now since I received the phone call that no mother ever wants to receive. An employee at the Suites at Station Exchange called and told me that my son had just been shot. I was in Pooler picking up my daughter from her voice lesson, and I had to pull over to try to calm myself- especially when she handed Cooper the phone and I heard him yelling "Mom, they shot me"! Within two minutes, Officers Christian, Akers, Sakelarios and Saia from the Richmond Hill PD arrived, and Cooper received first aid ...

Bo, Luke back in saddle, sort of

A few days ago I saw a television commercial where Bo and Luke Duke were brought back from the "Dukes of Hazzard" to promote some product. Once again they were in "The General" outrunning the law. I don't even recall the product they were hawking, but it made me stop and think about that old programming and just how juvenile it really was - just short of "Scooby Doo."
