Family is key to student achievement

Being involved in a child's education is not a part-time job. Parental involvement stretches from the classroom to the living room and every place in between. It is a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week pursuit that lasts throughout the year.

Sins of unplanned growth

Nealry three years ago when I had an editorial published in the Atlanta Journal Constitution (Economy & environment form a team, Dec 20, 2004), little did I know how topical those remarks would become by 2007.

Why not try consultation?

Congress and President Bush often do not see eye to eye, but does Washington need to be paralyzed as a result? Two recent dramas - a face-off over appropriations measures and Congress' failure to override the President's veto of children's health insurance legislation - bring that question into prominence.

Licensing human beings

Democratic presidential candidates are tripping over the driver's-licenses-for-illegal-aliens issue like a bunch of old slapstick vaudevillians.

Federalizing the U.S. military

New federal legislation shows the Bush administration has begun systematically putting in place authorization for the president to federalize the National Guard and use the U.S. military in domestic emergency situations.

Be thankful each, every day

Thanksgiving is much more than a big meal with family and friends. It's a time to reflect on and be thankful for all of the good things you have.

Why not 21?

Renewed public discourse about the advisability of lowering the legal drinking age, largely fueled by former Middlebury College President John M. McCardell Jr., has opened a different front in the war on substance use and abuse among young people.

Too much rain, too little rain...and the consequences

None of us who lived it will ever forget the fourth of July in Georgia in 1994. It started overcast and we were told there was a "chance of rain." The Peachtree Road Race went off without a hitch, with most runners rejoicing for the cooler temperatures and a few touches of misty rain. But, by the time the Braves were ready to take the field for their game that night at the old Fulton County Stadium, the mist had turned to a torrent.

Demonstrate the true holiday spirit

Among other things, the holidays are a time of giving and receiving gifts. The question most often asked of people is, "What did you get?" Much less frequently asked is, "What did you give?"

Self-reflection by Barack Obama

When it comes to self-reflection, Barack Obama is an overachiever. At age 46, he has already written two memoirs when most people in public life - sometime at the end of their career - will be lucky to write one.

Vouchers or school choice?

The voters of Utah said no to school vouchers on Tuesday. More than 60 percent of voters refused to ratify a bill passed earlier by the state legislature. It would have provided taxpayer-funded vouchers for each government-school student, ranging from $500 to $3,000, depending on family income. Students currently in private schools, unless they came from low-income families, would have been ineligible.

UGA is home of top college mascot

If I die anytime soon - and I have no plans to do so at the moment - please see that the first paragraph of my obituary reads, "He was past president of the University of Georgia National Alumni Association." You can save for later paragraphs the part about my being often mistaken for Brad Pitt and my uncanny ability to put commas where they don't belong.

Cool house with breezes, memories

"It's a funny thing." That's what Mama used to say when something baffled her. Like Mama, I prefer that things make sense. Otherwise, I'll ponder, figure, study and try to decipher that funny thing until it's somewhat sensible.

Another mom shares insights

I imagine, from time to time, you all get tired of reading about my adventures in toddler town and would like to hear from other parents. So, as you can imagine, I was thrilled when Hinesville Public Relations Manager Krystal Britton Hart took me up on my offer to guest write this week's column. Krystal has two daughters herself, one of whom is the same age as my daughter, Reese. I enjoy comparing notes and talking with her, and I'm sure our readers will be as interested in hearing what she has to say as I am. Enjoy!
