Being a much-beloved columnist is no easy task

Make ‘someday’ today with hurricane preparations

From tornadoes to flash floods and hurricanes to earthquakes, history proves that emergencies can happen unexpectedly and impact communities of all sizes. Many Georgians can attest to that, having experienced their fair share of severe weather in recent years. And with the peak of the hurricane season still ahead, there's a good chance that we'll face more severe weather before the year is out.

Staying on track

I fear routine. I pride myself in being a spontaneous woman, willing to take on a new adventure at any time and make last-minute changes on a whim. Never have I been the one to keep a daily planner or even keep up the calendar on my computer. I don't do schedules.

Government reform should be on every candidate’s agenda

As the presidential candidates go at it over the next several months, we'll be hearing a lot about what the federal government ought to be doing. Unfortunately, we'll likely hear next to nothing about how it should go about it. The need to reform how the federal government operates ought to be high on the campaign agenda every four years. Instead, it rarely gets mentioned.
