Thoughts on Brewer

I've been at this paper for about 2-1/2 years, give or take. During that time I haven't run across anyone as roundly or routinely vilified, talked bad about and apparently just straight out detested as Sallie Brewer.

Has a year gone by already? Studs and duds for 2008

Has a year gone by already? It seems like yesterday that I laid out the first "Studs 'n Duds" list. There were some good ones too in '07. Even carryovers to '08.

Ross Blair gets 'tased'

One of my beats here as a reporter for the Bryan County News is the police beat. I've found there are many advantages to this.

A puzzling plan

It's our view that U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) is a good representative of the people of Georgia. But the support he and others have shown recently passed legislation to 'stimulate the nation's declining housing market' is puzzling. After all, aren't Republicans supposed to be against big government - or is that only when the recipient of government largesse isn't big business?

Drive as if their lives depended on it

On the road from Thomasville to Tallahassee, a car ahead of ours hit a three-foot alligator. We were in a knot of traffic, traveling fast, and because we were in the outer lane, we luckily missed the gator. We turned around quickly and went back.

Tempting to say what the heck

It's tempting to say, "What the heck," and let Georgia State Rep. Tim Bearden, R-Villa Rica, go ahead and carry his concealed handgun into Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. However, that's only because his biography shows he used to be a law-enforcement officer.

Slowing down, one car at a time

There used to be a time when it seemed driving the speed limit was so uncommon you rarely found anyone who didn't speed. That's changing as gas prices continue to stay in the $4 per gallon neighborhood.

Where were they?

Cheers to all the candidates who participated in this year's primary election and congratulations to those who have either joined as new board members, incumbents in new positions, or incumbents selected to serve another term.

Happy bird-day, dear Thoreau

My husband wanted two things for his birthday. He wanted a blueberry pie, and to photograph birds at a rookery.

Boomers' needs increasing by leaps and bounds

The desires and needs of our ever-aging population are increasing by leaps and bounds as we move into the retirement stage for our first group of "baby boomers". Seventy-six million American children were born between 1945 and 1964. I happen to be on the tail end of this generation; sometimes referred to as the "shadow boomers" or "echo boomers" (people born between 1958-1964). I also belong to that group known as the "sandwich generation". Coined in the 1980s, this refers to baby boomers that care for both elderly parents and young children at the same time…..how lucky can you ...

There is nothing at all fair about credit card 'fair fee' act

Americans hold nearly $1 trillion in credit-card debt, according to data just released by the Federal Reserve. Now Congress wants to make that burden even heavier. Some misguided lawmakers are pushing legislation that would saddle consumers with fees that retailers don't want to pay.

Cutting cooking simplifies holidays

I didn't cook Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. My husband, daughter and I went to a restaurant in Richmond Hill that offered all the traditional holiday fare at a reasonable price. It was the first time in my life I did not eat a home-cooked meal on Thanksgiving.
