Feds could take courthouse shooting case

ATLANTA - Courthouse gunman Brian Nichols avoided a death penalty when a Fulton County jury failed to return a unanimous sentence, but local prosecutors are encouraging their federal counterparts to bring additional charges in hopes that Nichols could still face lethal injection.

Federal prosecutors would face higher legal standards to pursue death charges against Nichols based on the fact that one of his four victims was a federal agent. And the U.S. Attorney must first begin the lengthy process of getting approval from the Justice Department.

Holiday decorating with a 'green' touch

Last weekend, several volunteers for Keep Liberty Beautiful decorated one of the Yellow Bluff cottages for the development's Holiday Open House. Our mission was to decorate in an earth-friendly fashion. We had so much fun coming up with ideas that we simply could not use them all in the attractive three-bedroom charmer that we were assigned.

Here are some of the highlights of our "green" decorating project:

Compromise is key to happy marriage

I am a huge fan of "Sex and the City," and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I own several seasons of the show on DVD, which I've watched so often I can quote them off the top of my head. When the movie version was released in May, I rushed out to see the film the day it was released.
