New hearing set for death row inmate

ATLANTA - The Supreme Court on Monday ordered a new hearing for death row inmate Troy Davis, giving the condemned killer a chance to present evidence his lawyers say could clear him in the murder of an off-duty police officer almost 20 years ago.

The court told a federal judge to hold a hearing to decide whether evidence "that could not have been obtained at the time of trial" could establish Davis' innocence. His case has become a rallying cry for death penalty opponents.

Wait on the Lord in the race of life

I have mentioned this before in this space, but I have a deep desire to "finish well" in whatever I do. Last month, I attended a "pre-retirement" seminar sponsored by our state Baptist convention.

Tax policy a quality-of-life topic in 2015

Taxes are nobody's favorite expense. Most people view them as simply a nuisance bill to pay or as an added cost on a major purchase. Average Georgians rarely give state tax policy a second thought, especially compared to critical challenges like education and health care.
