What you see isn't always what you think you're getting

Senate bill protects coastal treasure

Day 15 (Feb. 3) - After a short weekend, we were back in session with three bills on the calendar, including Senate Bill 296, a bill that sets the acreage limit of developable land on Jekyll Island.

Parents, nip biting in the bud

My 21-month-old daughter, Reese, is sweet, gentle and trusting. My husband and I have gone to great lengths to teach her not to express her emotions through toddler-like acts of violence - hitting, kicking and biting. As a result, she's mild-mannered and happy-go-lucky. So, it's easy to understand why I'd be particularly aggravated at the fact another child at Reese's day care seems to be working hard to undo all of our teachings.
