Government is strangling the people

Editor, There's been much discussion lately about the burden of government in our personal and business lives. While it's entertaining to watch the conflicts and contempt among elected and bureaucratic hirelings in Washington and Atlanta, the grim reality is that the detrimental and destructive effects of government are most often inflicted on citizens at the local level in their dealings with city and county governments.

‘What do you want on your tombstone?’

When he asked it, I answered. Then I laughed. The question proved that my husband, a New England-bred Yankee with many years of Los Angeles influence, was morphing into a true Southerner.

What is a bucket list without the Gaithers?

I don't have a bucket list, but if I did, I would be hard-pressed to find room to add anything else. There is not much I have wanted to do that I haven't done, from shooting the breeze with the president in the Oval Office to seeing the sun rise in the Scottish Highlands to being embedded with the brave men and women of Georgia's 48th Brigade Combat Team in Iraq.

Recycling makes more than cents

A plastic bottle can be tossed out and end up as litter, tossed in a trashcan and end up in a landfill, or tossed into a recycle bin and be reincarnated into something useful.

Unity is fragile

Unity. It is a word that comes to the forefront in the midst of crisis. It is what is desired and reached for when people are faced with chaos and disrupted lives. On the best days, unity goes unnoticed. On the hardest of days, it seems easily obtained. In between, unity is elusive. One great consistency about unity is this:
