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.

One of my neighbors is starting to weird me out. It's been a long time coming, too. - First, he brought with him about 25 kids, all between the ages of seven and 10, or at least it seemed that way when he moved in about two years ago. Then he got them a trampoline. It sits about 50 feet from our back porch, next to a swing set and ...
School boards don't usually grab the good headlines.
Five years ago, the first unit to cross the Kuwait-Iraq border was the 3rd Infantry Division's 3rd Squadron, 7th Calvary Regiment. The days following were the most rapid advance in the 3rd Infantry Division history, outpacing even the World War II invasions of Sicily when the Division advanced 100 miles in 12 days, and southern France when the Division advanced 400 miles in a month. By March 31, 2003, the 3rd Infantry Division ...

There are many aspects to take into consideration when choosing a community including cost, location, size of the apartment, safety, cleanliness, amenities and services. This decision is never taken lightly, and would probably be a ...

Although you, my devoted readers and fans, likely are reading this on Mother's Day, it was written several days ahead of time, so I have no idea what kinds of surprises this special day will hold for me.
Editor: I see that Liberty County is still trying to take away Midway's fire department by using fear tactics. If Liberty County wants full-time firefighters in Midway, all the county has to do is send some of Midway's property taxes back to the city so that the city can hire the full-time firefighters.
A little more than three years ago, the controversial health-care law known as Obamacare to some and the Affordable Care Act to others was signed into law.
