You throw back the comforter made by Guanzhou Meishi Textile Co. and slip out from under the Egyptian cotton sheets. After brushing your teeth, you dress, putting on a shirt made in Thailand and a tie imported from the U.K. The look is complete with a suit made in Hong Kong. Not wanting to be late, you check the time on your Swiss-made watch as you slip into a pair of Italian loafers.
Politicians have been quick to criticize the federal stimulus package, calling it a waste of tax dollars. They point out that they haven't noticed much of a difference in unemployment rates across the Peach State. Counties are still reporting high percentages, despite millions of dollars being pumped into job programs.
A recent break-in to our storage unit reminded me that value is relative. Although the unit holds almost every material thing my husband and I have accumulated over the years, apparently nothing in our unit was worth stealing.
It has been 27 years since he passed away, and not a day goes by that I don't miss him terribly, especially on Father's Day.
My husband and I would like to thank Officer Britting for his assistance with our dog when it was bitten by a cottonmouth out by the transportation department pond. We really thank him for his assistance and direction. He's our hero. Thank you, officer.
At the ripe old age of "I stopped counting," I have become one of those people. I can't stop myself. I've become a Facebooker. I don't want to be one, but I can't figure out how to kick the nasty habit.
She has long blond hair that flows in curls over her shoulders. Her bright blue eyes sparkle under the lights. She flutters her long, dark lashes as she cocks her head to one side in a flirtatious, come-hither manner. Her bow-shaped lips are a beautiful, rich cherry red. Her baby blue sequined dress flows to the floor, settling around patent leather Mary Jane shoes. She is only 6 years old.
Editor, It is 5 a.m. and I have had the luxury of four hours of sleep. As I look out my window, I see smoke all around my neighborhood and the reality of the past 14 hours fills my thoughts. I keep thinking of two small words - thank you. I'm sure residents of Smiley Cross, Wilderness and Jake Lucas roads and all other affected areas also are repeating those words.
Editor, Bicycle Ride Across Georgia (BRAG) came to Liberty County on Friday, June 10 and headed out Saturday, June 11. The 1,200 cyclists who had been riding across the state all week stayed at Snelson-Golden Middle School, camping out across the grounds and inside the school itself.
When I heard Newt Gingrich's campaign staff had resigned, I called the premier political analyst in the country to get the low-down on what really happened. That would be Junior E. Lee, general manager of the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Co., located in Greater Garfield, Ga.
Every year after the legislative session ends, I send out a newsletter to constituents reporting on the activities of our session and asking for feedback on issues important to them.
If the issue of major tax reform, which stalled in the recent session of the Georgia General Assembly, isn't taken up in a special session, it will almost certainly resurface in 2012. Before lawmakers go back to spectacularly bad ideas like reimposing the state sales tax on food, they might want to make major adjustments to a loophole through which tens of millions are pouring out of Georgia's coffers, and for the benefit of a select few.
Yep, this is about Bigfoot again. Please bear with me.
