An International Atomic Energy Agency report says that Iran is a major nuclear threat. The IAEA shared satellite images, letters and diagrams with 35 nations to support its claim. Iran claims that its nuclear program is for peaceful energy use only. Can we believe Iran? Can we believe the IAEA? Remember, the American people once were told that Saddam Hussein was developing nuclear weapons, yet we found none.
It's hard to believe that our baby, Anastasia, was born one month ago. In a way, it feels like she was born yesterday. At the same time, it feels like she's been a part of our lives for so long now.
I once had the honor to talk to Mr. Ellis "Pete" Gordon about his life before he became "Mr. Pete."
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.

Here we are again, welcoming the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season has begun with Thanksgiving, Black Friday shopping, football and school vacation.
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.
Thursday marked the first Thanksgiving I've spent away from my family back in Iowa. That being said, this Thanksgiving probably was the best I've had yet.
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 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.

More than a century ago, New York Surrogate Judge Gideon J. Tucker handed down a legal decision that included this observation of state lawmakers: "No ...
