Roll up your sleeve and give

Let Georgians have a say on Jekyll Island

As Senator for District 3, I have often taken inspiration from the exhibit at the Georgia State Museum, which compliments "our past and present governors and our Department of Natural Resources for the excellent job they have done in keeping our coastline free from pollution, commercial exploitation and destruction," and for providing "thousands, of yet unborn generations, the pleasure of exploring and enjoying Georgia's seashore."

A costly wake up call

When it comes to progressive climate change initiatives, Georgia's legislators distinguish themselves by leading the opposition. Our state's national reputation hit a new low last year on both environmental and economic development issues when Georgia legislators at the National Conference of State Legislatures refused to adopt or recommend federal measures to address climate change issues, including global warming. Such measures incorporate targets for reducing carbon emission, plus investing in renewable energy and energy conservation.

There is nobody here but us mollusks

'We're not in this crisis because of growth," Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle told a north Georgia group last week, but because "we're in the worst drought in our state's history," and because the Corps of Engineers has been sending water downstream "for the purpose of feeding mussels."

Holidays offer special time to remember

The holidays offer a special time to remember our many blessings as Americans - perhaps chief among them are the dedicated soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who protect our nation. Since assuming this post a year ago, I have been awed and humbled by our men and women in uniform who are carving for themselves a noble place in American history.

Be a conservationist in 2008

In a lot of ways, 2007 should have been a wake up call for the Southeast, which may be experiencing the most rapid growth in the region's history. That goes double for Georgia, the fastest growing state in the South, because while state officials trumpet Georgia's economic successes – and they are worth trumpeting – something worrisome is happening

Home is where a caring heart is

For many of us, the word "home" signifies refuge, safety, caring, warmth and love - a sanctuary where we belong. Home is the place that we know is waiting for us at the end of our daily journey into the rushed and sometimes chaotic world. I love coming home in the evening- even if it is a particularly late night, which happens often. The first thing I listen for when I walk in the door is a greeting from my wife and daughter. Nothing beats a "Hey Honey" and "Hi Daddy, how was your day."
