The key to helping families at the pump and reducing our dependence on foreign oil is to spend tax money on developing renewable energy sources. President Barack Obama actually said this in his weekly radio address. He also said we need to increase our drilling at home.

In a coastal county like ours, water truly is everywhere. Liberty County has an abundance of wetlands, marshes, rivers, creeks and, of course, access to the Atlantic Ocean. We are fortunate, but we also have a distinct responsibility to this wealth of water spaces. We need to take care of them and protect the birds and aquatic life forms that depend on these water sources, just as humans do.

My husband and I now are just a few small steps away from making what may be one of the riskiest decisions a military family can make. That's right - we're buying a house. With only the finalities left in the process, I'm starting to pack up my clothes - most of which don't fit my new pregnant figure anyway - and perusing paint swatches for a nursery.

Thirty-eight states have approved some form of horse racing and pari-mutuel wagering. Georgia is not one of those 38 states, but for years there has been talk during sessions of the General Assembly about expanding the state horse industry by allowing racing.
A governor's got to do what a governor's got to do, but Gov. Nathan Deal's vetoes of the "campus carry" and "religious ...
There isn't a day that passes that I don't remember Mama. Many of the times she crosses my mind, I am doing something ...
