Shootings are public health issue

Editor: There are people who disagree with what I write, and that's OK. They are mostly liberals. But, I do agree with Ms. Niki Seale in that discipline should be handled at home. That is if we still lived in the 1940s and '50s when most households had two parents and the mother stayed home to raise the children.

Parents are key to stopping carnage

Just as the city of Parkland and the nation are trying to recover after one of the most horrific school shootings in history last month that left 17 people dead, 14 of them children, more disturbing news from Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School this week. Two students were arrested for bringing weapons onto the campus, and a third student was arrested for making a threat on social media.

Drones and what they would replace

Most folks think that the US Postal Service invented the quote, "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."

Don’t label a child, but it is OK to label actions

When I began reading "The 9 Words Parents Should Never Say to Their Kids" (Jan. 5, 2018, www.fatherly.com), I was skeptical that essayist Patrick Coleman's point of view would line up with my own, and I wasn't disappointed.

Proposed cuts will hurt Georgians

The White House proposed a 2019 budget last month that makes steep cuts to one of the strongest lines of defense this country uses to fight hunger: the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Transparency is vital to good government

The average Georgian has never been under the Gold Dome. Many have vague memories of a two-headed calf on display during a State Capitol school field trip. For most Georgians, the closest they get to the General Assembly is their legislator's local townhall meeting or, if they are really interested, watching legislators in action online.
