Taxpayers on hook for botched ethics probe of governor

In 1997, then-Gov. Zell Miller appointed me to fill a vacant seat on the five-member State Ethics Commission and then reappointed me to a full term, in which I served until 2002.

Childhood choices affect whole lives

To this conclusion I have come: the most deadly years of our lives are the ages of 16 to 21. Those years give us a headiness that comes from new freedom - a driver's license - and the passing of the torch from strict childhood rules to more trust, different restraints and relaxed curfews.

Stormwater runoff is good rain gone bad

I love a good rainstorm - I always have. My mother used to check the weather forecast for thunderstorms because I was fascinated by them and wanted to watch them outside. However, it's not really a good idea to sit outside during a thunderstorm.

Be flexible with child' milestones

My 2-year-old is a chatterbox. I have no idea where she gets it from. (I'm being sarcastic, of course; it's obviously a trait passed down directly from me.)

Once upon a blood moon in Georgia

Midway needs better fire-protection deal

It's good when the fire department is quiet, but the Midway Fire Department is the busiest department outside of Hinesville. The Midway volunteers do an excellent job with a quick response time. Many residents are not aware of Midway's coverage area, but the Midway Fire Department covers Midway's 4 square miles and 40 square miles of unincorporated areas of Liberty County. It also supports other fire departments when called upon for assistance.

Tales, myths evolve; legends live on

Make healthy cooking, eating fun

I've always heard and read that it's a good idea to involve children in meal-preparation efforts, because they're more likely to eat dishes that they helped cook. That makes sense.
