Well worth the time

About eight or nine months ago (time flies when you're having fun), I was convinced by News Publisher Mark Griffin that I should apply for a spot in the 2008 Leadership Bryan class.

Frances Meeks

After more than half a century as a teacher, administrator and public official in the Bryan County school system, Frances Meeks is calling it a career. All of Bryan County should thank her for her service and wish her a long, fulfilling and happy retirement.

Notes from a birdwatcher: Does that bird belong in Richmond Hill?

Simply amazing! That was my reaction to seeing the painted bunting for the first time just two weeks ago. Last summer I was busy unpacking after a long cross-country trip from the West coast, so I missed seeing this "Easter egg" of the birding world. By the time I looked up from underneath the mountain of boxes I was under, they were gone.

Senator says open dialogue with Georgia DOT is critical

Certainly a major area of concern for motor truckers and the average American family is the high price of gas that is continuing to hamper our economy. Of particular concern to me is the increased cost of diesel fuel and its effects on the trucking industry.

If you aren't against it, you must be for it

I'm going to start off by noting I don't know who sent this email Thursday to reporter Jessica Holthaus. She doesn't know who it is either.

Off Tybee, following the dolphins in

My friend Elizabeth Johnson is a boat captain on Tybee Island. For a living she takes anglers 50 to 75 miles off the coast and tells them how to bait up and where to cast and how to reel in. She's the kind of person who goes at life like Earl Scruggs goes at banjo, which is full tilt boogie.

Landscape conservation

"Traditional gardening, landscaping and landscape maintenance practices are often driven by outdated aesthetic fashion and shortsighted economic interests, with little ethical consideration. As a result, our traditional practices are often quite harmful to our health and the environment in general." - from the EPA

Further thoughts on Jekyll Island redevelopment

There are vastly differing views on the changes made by the Jekyll Island Authority and Linger Longer Communities in a major development project reported and commented upon recently in the media. The so-called concession to keep the 'town center' project out of the Shore Protection Act jurisdiction is certainly welcome, but hardly magnanimous - nor evidently all that it first appeared to be.

Transparency is the ticket

Internet-savvy bank customers in Georgia can go online and check and balance their accounts from the comfort of their home, even at 2 in the morning. But let that same taxpayer be curious at 10 a.m. about how his taxes are being spent in Georgia, and he'd have a tough time finding out.

Rep. Stephens: "The reality is it was a successful session."

In coffee shops, diners, and community meetings, much has been debated about the 2008 Georgia General Assembly session that concluded two week ago.

Food tastes are in the genes

One afternoon, I had a hankering - a primal-like craving - for a supper of pinto beans and cornbread with a tall glass of cold, rich buttermilk thrown in for good measure and extra filling.

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.
