DOT: Please pardon our progress

It's springtime in Georgia and summer is around the corner. It is a time when we welcome visitors to our great state, and we start thinking about hitting the roads with family and friends for fun and vacations.

Renewable energy must be our future

Earth is not ours to simply take from and destroy. Do we not share responsibility in stewarding what God has provided? During this now lengthy life, I have learned a few lessons: What I take for granted can be taken away, awakening me to improper care and attention to matters of great importance.

Egg farmers have some 'splainin' to do

Raymond Cooper was feeling pretty good about himself as he took to the airways on Friday, July 17, 1998.
