The infamous Jekyll/Hyde syndrome

I don't like crowds. A family reunion is about as big a group as I want to be in. Forget theme parks and other places where you wish you had the Right Guard franchise. I think this attitude may come with age. And with wisdom.

Will cancer recommendations save lives?

Coal, jobs and your electric bill

Part of the Public Service Commission's job in Georgia is certifying how and where Georgia Power gets electricity. With ever-changing federal environmental regulations, the PSC soon will have to decide whether to close some of our old coal facilities or bring them into Environmental Protection Agency compliance with new standards by putting controls on them to further remove sulfur, mercury and NOx.

EPD should not worry about economic growth

Jud Turner, Gov. Nathan Deal's choice to head the Georgia Environmental Protection Division, will officially succeed EPD Director Allen Barnes in the new year. At Wednesday's meeting of the state Natural Resources Board, Turner pledged to "adopt the policies of his predecessor in trying to keep economic development coming into the state while regulating its impact on the environment."

City should review its own documents

Editor: Since I attended the Nov. 8 Ludowici City Council meeting, there has been much speculation by the public about funds paid to Vanessa Cunningham. This woman is trying against great odds to bring the city into the 21st century by bringing up to date the charter, ordinances and a series of other things as shown in documents signed by the mayor and city clerk. These things, required by state and federal statutory requirements, are not necessarily good for old politics and, in my opinion, this is the reason for all the turmoil unfolding right before the new government begins ...

Whose city is Midway, anyway?

City governments should not be allowed to function with smoke and mirrors. City government and its records must be open to its residents, and the full city council should be part of the decisions made for the city.

In-person support beats internet

Virtual support is a trend that is growing more and more popular in the military community. When spouses have questions, they no longer have to rely solely on their family readiness group for answers. Now, with Facebook pages and forums dedicated specifically to military spouse support, it's easy to get instantaneous feedback.

Dangers to our liberties lurk in our own desires

As Democrats and Republicans fall all over themselves trying to come up with ways not to raise payroll taxes on millions of Americans - all with an eye toward next fall's elections - there is another, more sinister proposal working its way through Congress.

Who cares that UGA lost the SEC championship?

In case you have been vacationing on the moon, you may have missed the news that the student-athletes from the University of Georgia, the oldest state-chartered university in the nation, located in Athens, the Classic City of the South, came up a wee bit short in attaining the football championship of the Southeastern Conference. That honor went to the young men of Louisiana State University, who, having observed them in post-game interviews, are destined to become either, you know, great orators or, you know, quantum physicists.

Is the United States ready for another war?

An International Atomic Energy Agency report says that Iran is a major nuclear threat. The IAEA shared satellite images, letters and diagrams with 35 nations to support its claim. Iran claims that its nuclear program is for peaceful energy use only. Can we believe Iran? Can we believe the IAEA? Remember, the American people once were told that Saddam Hussein was developing nuclear weapons, yet we found none.
