The state Legislature adopted it after it was passed by the U.S. Congress, which made the law mandatory across the land. The objective is to keep illegal immigrants from obtaining a valid license to operate a vehicle on roads and highways.

Bus system does make sense in theory

I'll tell you honestly that I have been more tempted to jump on the bash-the-bus-system bandwagon than I actually have been to jump on the bus. That said, I love the idea in theory.

Time to create a different model for housing

Recently, the story broke that foreclosures were at the lowest level since 2007. That sounds like great news - we're finally cleaning up the mess from the real estate bubble. Except for one thing: RealtyTrac.com, a marketer of information on foreclosed real estate, noted in April that the number of short sales (where a bank allows an owner to sell for less than is owed on the mortgage) were up by 33 percent from last year. In other words, there's still plenty of distressed real estate; the banks are just using a different method to get rid of ...

Being a much-beloved columnist is no easy task

Would you allow an unlicensed electrician to install a bug zapper in your living room? Would you let an unlicensed plumber unclog the throne in your reading room?

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.

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.

Plum Nelly Pitts predicts Higgs boson still won’t fix stupid

News bulletin: "Scientists working at the world's biggest atom smasher near Geneva have announced the discovery of a new subatomic particle that looks remarkably like the long-sought Higgs boson.
