Building a healthier Georgia

Sept. 23 marked the six-month anniversary of the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, the new federal health care law. The bulk of the changes go into effect in 2014, giving state and local governments, insurers, providers and other key stakeholders time to translate and implement the new policies.

Simple slogans won't cut it anymore

When John Kerry calls you out of touch, you must be so far out of touch that you need to call Mazlan Othman, the U.N.'s designated liaison to space aliens, to re-establish contact with Planet Earth.

Just don't go there

MOULTRIE - Quite often I read advice on what to do when you encounter a dangerous critter. For instance, if you meet up with a grizzly bear you are advised to make yourself look bigger than you really are.

Learn government-speak to understand health care reform

In most families, moms are the caregivers, and most moms have a medicine "box" or tray with all kinds of cures for middle-of-the-night pains and fevers. If it's not in the "box," a quick trip to a local 24-hour pharmacy usually secures the needed treatment. When that doesn't work, a doctor's visit secures a prescription to be filled at the local pharmacy. But for most situations a caring mom, Mother Nature and over-the-counter medications get children well and avoid unnecessary physician visits and expenses.

City must exercise fiscal restraint

Hinesville's streets aren't paved in gold. Dollar bills aren't growing on the live oaks that dot the local landscape, so why are the mayor and city council spending money like it's going out of style?

Potted plants will ruin good pontification

This isn't going to please those boys and girls with the dark glasses and hearing aids who are always talking to their lapels, but my column commandos walked right past them the other night to attend the season's first conversation at the Carter Center, otherwise known as Jimmy Carter's out-of-touch-with-reality pontifications.

And if it quacks like a deer

Last night I was sitting at an intersection and a fellow pulled up beside me on a motorcycle wearing a Viking's helmet with huge horns on it. I thought to myself how dangerous it was to dress like that this close to deer season ... wearing horns and riding a motorcycle. My next thought was to let him get way out of range.

Securing safety with new START

Nuclear arms control: What high school student cares, much less has anything to say about this global issue? Some policy issues feel as complicated as – well, rocket science. But that makes it even more important for us to understand them.

Lets give them a warm welcome home

"The Army takes care of its own." It's a truth I've discovered personally in my years of coordinating the 3rd Infantry Division's Adopt-a-Soldier program. There are few situations when a soldier or his family slips through the safety net the military has in place. So in the rare instance when the U.S. Army shyly asks for our help, you can bet it's important.
