Imagine turning 65 and finding a letter tucked in your mailbox offering unlimited movie tickets for just $25 a month. You read through the fine print, and amazingly, the offer isn't a scam. It's a new federal program called "MovieCare."
Hello. Remember me? Some people call me Old Glory; others call me the Star Spangled Banner, but whatever they call me, I am your flag, the flag of the United States of America.
I've used Windows for years, along with a free alternative that I think could be useful for many. While I have heard much complaining about Windows, most do not know that alternatives exist.
Under the old rules, investigative newsman Dale Cardwell would be treated as a fringe candidate for the U.S. Senate - a TV reporter probably in the throes of a midlife crisis and determined to jump off a cliff.
I would personally like to commend the (Hinesville) city council for their wise review and subsequent vote down for the use of red-light cameras within the city.
It was a lovely fall day when my husband and I headed out for a fun few days away from work. We planned to meet our daughter and her family on Friday evening in Helen.
B.R.A.G. coming to Hinesville: Little did I know when I started the Bike Ride Across Georgia in 1980, that it would still be going strong in 2007. This year's route will bring them to Bradwell Institute on next Friday. If you've never witnessed 1,600 people on bicycles, now is your chance. Just be kind and give them the right-of-way as they make their way into Hinesville to Bradwell. There will be plenty of festivities and food for everyone. This is the second time the bikers have been hosted by the city of Hinesville. The ...
How does a person transition from a life of regimented detail to one of flexible chaos? How does one stop living an ingrained way of life for 27 years and completely become the "anti-you"?
During the three months of the Great American Cleanup, 408 volunteers shared 1,735 hours of their time to improve our world.
The latest immigration deal is not the final deal. There's still time to keep the good, get rid of the bad and put up with the silly.
It is the strange fate of retiring British Prime Minister Tony Blair to be called a lackey for adhering to his own deep-felt foreign-policy vision.
There has been a lot of discussion on an event at a Boulder, Colo., high school on April 10.
Fatherhood has been transforming. Fifty years ago, a father tended to be perceived primarily as a provider.
Gov. Sonny Perdue seemed to be having such a good time with his budget veto pen last week, sticking it in the eye of the House leadership and several other groups not on especially friendly terms with His Excellency.
In a recent speech, LCPC chairman Jim Thomas said the population of Liberty County could increase by as much as 32 to 50 percent by the year 2030.
I just learned of a book called, "Say Goodbye to Your Southern Accent."
It's time to talk trash for a few minutes.
This is the end, my friends. After writing this column for more than three years, it is time for me to move on. I also write for three magazines and the commitment to the magazines is starting to demand a lot of my time. I have enjoyed bringing you the latest information on Midway and hope that you will attend the monthly meetings to keep the mayor and city-council members on their toes.
It has become somewhat of an art for me, that of studying Southern culture and deciphering what makes us different from others, as well as downright peculiar among ourselves.
I recently enjoyed a week in my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, with my family. Usually, when I visit the best city in the country (my own personal opinion there), I only have a few days in which to squeeze in trips to my favorite restaurants, a little rest and relaxation, outings with relatives and an evening or two with old friends. So it was wonderful to have a little more time.
MOULTRIE - The first item in my emails today was: "How to get thin quickly."
Our veterans shouldn't need an act of Congress and a presidential signature to get the Veterans Affairs healthcare system up to speed. But that's just what it took.
Whistleblowers, often revered and feared by the Obama administration, have received a special place since the 2011 initiation of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), a global transparency campaign. Their prominence is justified. The OGP will become a magnet for cynicism unless there is safe cover for those who will make it work or fail - whistleblowers on the front lines of fraud, waste and abuse currently sustained through secrecy and enforced by repression.
According to the Federal Register, on Dec. 7, 2009, the Environmental Protection Agency "found" that current and projected concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere threaten the public health and welfare of current and future generations. Unfortunately, this finding and the EPA's subsequent action threaten the health and welfare of current and future generations of Georgians far more than greenhouse gases do.
Just when you thought Washington couldn't get any messier, our elected officials in the nation's capital prove it can.
Dear Georgia public-school teachers, It is new school year but, alas, the same old impediments: an out-of-touch federal bureaucracy, ideological state legislators who choose not to send their kids to public schools but intend to tell you how and what to teach, and a society that values reality television more than quality education. Sometimes, I wonder how you manage.
This week, school bells will ring and the 2014-15 academic year will begin. Some children welcome it, others don't. Parents also likely have mixed feelings about the start of another term.
