The life and legacy of a great journalist

Resolution encourages displaying flag

For our great nation, the symbol of our hard-fought freedom is our flag. I believe our flag should be flown with respect for our forefathers, the veterans and current servicemen and women who protect our freedom, and as a reminder of what we stand for as a nation.

Car shopping with a kid in mind

My husband and I are about to make our first big purchase since Reese joined our family. Don't get me wrong - with the amount of clothes, food and miscellaneous supplies a baby needs, a trip to the local big-box discount store does, on occasion, makes me feel like I've been taken to the cleaners.

I believe he missed the point with the two House bills that he opposes concerning the Affordable Care Act, i.e. Obamacare.

Senate works through bills as end nears

March 3: While serving on the Appropriations Committee is a great honor, it is also a big responsibility. While most legislators went home last Thursday and Friday, me and other members of the Appropriations Committee remained in Atlanta working on the 2015 budget.

Learn from those who've gone before us

As an unusually mild, rainy summer was melting away - or rather, frosting its way into autumn - I took to noticing signs that our mountain people always have used to judge the forthcoming severity of winter.
