Shariah law is exploiting the U.S. constitution

For more than 235 years, we have depended on the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights as the foundation of our judicial system. This system is being eroded by courts that are now making their own laws and throwing out the laws passed by our elected officials. The latest trend in the courts is to follow Shariah, which is Islamic law, and international laws that have nothing to do with this country.

Honoring a wise man who made a difference

Today, I ask for a moment of personal privilege. It was two years ago this week that I wrote about the Three Wise Men who have so greatly influenced my life: Roy Hodnett, a real estate magnate on Saint Simons Island; Dr. Raymond Cook, my college professor, now residing in Valdosta and John W. Jacobs Jr., a broadcast pioneer and philanthropist from Gainesville. All three are in their 90s or close to it. All three are a part of the Greatest Generation. All three are family men of faith. I could not have asked for better role models.

A bipartisan case for cynicism about government

Two state officials, two states, different political parties. Their sins are of vastly different degrees of seriousness. But they both illustrate vividly why citizens, who are supposed to be responsibly represented by people who allegedly serve at our pleasure and on our behalf, have become so cynical and exasperated.

Wood-dwelling pests not always cause for concern

You may have noticed little insects fluttering around the past couple of days. Are those termites? Yep. As a homeowner, it's natural to want to put up a protective dome around your home when termites swarm. Do you need to panic or do something immediately? No.

Junior is taking credit for Gingrich campaign upsurge

Junior E. Lee is one of my most valued associates, but he can be a load to manage and a bit of a know-it-all. Junior, as you know, is general manager of the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company, located in Greater Garfield, Ga. He has two primary responsibilities: First, keep as many bugs as possible out of Emanuel County - particularly at Arveen Ridley's farm - and then to help us all make more informed political decisions. The exterminating profession doesn't seem to have a lot in common with the democratic process, but when you have someone of ...

Bad economy puts damper on birth rate

U.S. Senate needs to pass House-approved bills

If our economy is going to make a comeback, the U.S. Senate must start acting like it wants to create more jobs and pass the bills that already have been passed by the House of Representatives. The Democratic Senate is sitting on more than 18 bills that could jumpstart the economy and produce jobs.

Some legislation is better left alone

The pre-filing period for legislation to be considered in the 2012 session of the Georgia General Assembly began Nov. 14. Georgia's two-year legislative cycle means bills introduced but not passed in 2011 officially still are on the agenda.

It’s almost time to fly solo

For the first time since Anastasia's birth, I'm preparing to do it on my own. Between my husband's 10 days of paternity leave and the nearly constant presence of family, I've always had some kind of help.
