As former state Attorney General Mike Bowers used to say, "Dirt shows up more on a white hat."
Most of the hard work has already been done. The sponsors are all lined up for next month's 2nd Annual Richmond Hill Gridiron Association Golf Tournament at Crosswinds. The prizes range from the sublime - two golfers will be drawn to compete for a one-shot chance at $250,000 - to the ridiculously cool (like the opportunity to bag a Harley-Davidson). I'm impressed - and apparently I'm not the only one. ...
Michelle Obama is at it again, with yet another rhetorical gaffe. In fact, she so frequently makes "misstatements" that one has to wonder if she is really misstating at all. It seems to me as if her true character is being revealed. Recently she was credited with this observation on economics: Well, the pie is only so big. And some people are going to have to give up parts of their pie for ...
When it comes to the continuing fuss over the planned conference center at J.F. Gregory Park, Mayor Richard Davis said something interesting at Richmond Hill's city council meeting Tuesday. He in essence said that if residents knew the facts about the project, they'd support it.
As we celebrate Georgia Cities Week, I'd like to tell you about the state of the city. First, and foremost, we have a strong wealth of value and knowledge in our city employees.
April is National Healthcare Decision Month. It is designated as such to create an awareness of the importance of choosing a Healthcare Agent (previously know as power of attorney for healthcare) and filling out the Advanced Directive form designated by the state of Georgia. The rules for advance directives in the state of Georgia have somewhat changed since the middle of last year; they have actually become more simplified - imagine that. None-the-less, ...
At a lecture in Athens more than five years ago I was introduced to a beautiful woman with whom I had in common a river.
Recent headlines greeted us with the story of a group of female cheerleaders beating the snot out of another girl, for the sole purpose of videotaping a "girl fight" to post on You-Tube, therefore rendering them famous, or some such nonsense. Close to home here in Georgia, a group of 8 and 9-year-olds meticulously planned the murder of their teacher.
April is Alcohol Awareness Month. Alcohol Awareness Month began as a way of reaching the American public with information about the disease of alcoholism-that is a treatable disease, not a moral weakness, and that alcoholics are capable of recovery. As a national public awareness campaign, Alcohol Awareness Month has featured honorary chairpersons such as Senator George McGovern, Dr. David Satcher the former Surgeon General, Barry McCaffrey the Director of the Office of National ...
The end is near for the 2008 Georgia General Assembly session. By the time many of you read this, the session will be completed and we will have adjourned Sine Die. Next week I will provide you with the highlights of the 40th day, but for now, this is what happened in the final week. Most of the debate these final days is based on the amendments that have been added to some ...
If I can be so bold as to name a time of full glory for Georgia, spring is it.
Let's hear a thunderous round of applause followed by an ear-splitting rebel yell for House Speaker Glenn Richardson. He is clearly the winner of the 2008 legislative wars.
I'm sore. I'm so very sore. But I'm still motivated! I think I just need to make sure and give myself a day or two off for recouping after each training day. I covered the "See Spot Run" 5K Race and Walk last Saturday morning. It was actually the first 5K event I'd ever been to, come to think of it. I once helped with a race in college, handing out ...
Tough economic times may lay ahead, but that's no reason not to give Georgia residents tax breaks. If anything it's even more of a reason to provide relief, as taxpayers are caught in the same wicked cycle.
Child abuse and neglect is one of the greatest ills of our society. Bryan County Family Connection along with our community partners would like to announce support for April as "Child Abuse Prevention Month."
There's a woman I'm looking for. Perhaps you know where she is. If you do, please help me find her again.
Editor,, I would like to take this opportunity to discuss something important.
I've noticed a recurring question as I talk to people about Congress. What can be done, they wonder, to get Congress back on track? Is our national legislature capable of serious policy making?
Since she started day care six weeks ago, my little girl hasn't had an easy go of it. Having stayed at home with one parent or another the entire first year of her life, Reese's immune system hasn't built up much resistance, and she seems to pick up every bug, virus, flu and cold within a 5-mile radius.
For some, July 8, 2010, was a momentous day in the state of Georgia - but not for a good reason.
Sixty-nine years ago last Thursday, Allied forces stormed the heavily fortified beaches of Normandy. Through their courage and sacrifice, they cut a foothold in Northern France and began a march that culminated in victory.
I have said it before, but let me repeat: I have no problem with charter schools. I did have a big problem with the ham-handed way last November's charter-school referendum was rammed through by proponents.
Identity theft continues to be a real problem in the United States - and our senior population is at extreme risk.
Georgia's citizens have been kept in the dark regarding two troubling occurrences related to the ongoing update of the Jekyll Island State Park Master Plan:
What was thought by many, especially on the left, to be domestic overreach by the George W. Bush administration in the name of national security now appears to be standard practice under the Obama administration.
I'm a bit old-fashioned when it comes to values. Now, mind you, I'm not talking about politics here; I try to steer clear of hot-button issues when it comes to this column. However, I could see how the two could become easily confused or even intertwined.
Charlie Tinker, according to his diary, was feeling poorly on the morning of April 15, 1865. He had left the office April 12 and gone home to bed. A doctor visited and said he must stay in bed since he had an intermittent fever.
