Those armadillos are living rent-free

If you live in Long, Tattnall or Liberty counties, you probably have seen one of my cousins. I live in rural Tattnall County, but I have cousins all over the southeastern United States.

Engineer defends proposed landfill

We all produce trash that must be managed and disposed of in a manner to protect human health and the environment. I am Steve Harbin, a professional engineer with 29 years of engineering experience, 28 of which have included a primary focus in the planning and implementation of more than 300 solid waste projects, including design of more than 40 municipal solid waste landfills.

A reminder of what's really important

I got a good lesson in wealth management this week. Not from a high-powered financial advisor, but from the retrospective of a 103-year-old life lived well.

Stand proud as 'unhyphenated American'

What's with the use of hyphens to describe us? Are you a Mexican-American, African-American, Arab-American, Asian-American, European-American or some other hyphen, or are you just an American?

Fighting litter is a year-round job

What if a million years ago, a caveman finished a soda and tossed the glass bottle on the ground? Well, chances are that if you visited that same spot today, the glass bottle still would be around.

Six ways to Sunday drives in Georgia

Transportation policy may not have been the priority during the legislative session, but in the long shadow of the Gold Dome, proposals, plans, ideas and reports were moving right along. And now that the regular legislative session is over, expect greater focus on the good, the bad and the ugly of future transportation decisions for Georgia.

Reform finally on front burner

The time, 2008, and candidate Barack Obama told a Spanish TV audience on Univision, "What I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I'm promoting." When 2010 rolled around, Hispanics were wondering why the now President Obama hadn't kept his word. They are still wondering.

We're all in this fight together

One of the most amusing things I've witnessed as a military spouse is the continuous competition between branches of the military. My very proud Army infantry soldier of a husband certainly is no different than the rest when it comes to taking little jabs at other branches. His best friend just happens to have served in the Air Force, along with many members of his family, so he's always picking fun at airmen.

Punish those who destroy American way of life

Editor, Osama has assumed sea temperature. How long will it take for the liberals in the media and around the country to condemn America for killing the world-famous religious leader and honorable man, Osama bin Laden? They may be silent for a day or two, but soon they will praise the evil man as misunderstood or justified in his terrorist actions.
