Progress starting to show in Iraq

Everywhere I go people ask me how I have so much confidence the Army is not breaking, and it is because our magnificent Soldiers are not only taking the fight to the enemy every day, but they are reenlisting in large numbers.

Symbol of 'new' South

During the past several months, we've learned exactly how Georgia's elected officials perceive their mandate from the voters. Our leaders' view of where we want them to go is changed considerably from where we wanted to go in Georgia during the second half of the 20th century.

Make decisions with family in mind

Twelve years ago, I made a decision to follow my head, not my heart, and put my career first. I'd just completed my first post-college internship at the Abilene Reporter-News in Texas and, having impressed my supervisor, was offered full-time employment at the end of my three-month stint.
