Sonny Perdue's $9 million horse barn in Houston County and enough cash left over for a palomino or two. When state government works well, it is an awesome sight to behold.

Anti-meth ads graphic; likely effective

Earlier this month, many Georgia television viewers, newspaper readers, radio listeners and Internet users likely were shocked at the graphic images, stomach-turning descriptions and bluntly worded warnings that turned up on their screens, pages and radios.

I don't think there is a problem with celebrating both as long as we don't somehow mingle them together. On the secular side we have the Easter bunny, coloring and finding eggs,special decorations and of course candy. On the spiritual side there is of course the celebration of our risen Savior Jesus Christ with special services and events that day and the preceeding week. What we need to understand is that ...
