Legislators crammed a lot into first week

• Day 1 - Monday, Jan. 14: Although we have been out of session since March 29 of last year, it seems that I spent more time in Atlanta than at home during the interim. There only have been two two-week periods when I didn't have to come to the Capitol at least once during the week.

Parents must help kids find identity

I am not a Southerner. Born and raised in St. Louis, Mo., I'm a Midwesterner and a city dweller through and through.

There are a few Southern customs I'll never get used to, and many who know me would say I have the patience of a Yankee - that is, I have ...

Newspapers' reporting empowers us

I had the privilege of being with a group of newspaper publishers at the Georgia Press Association's winter gathering in Atlanta this week. It was one of those times I wish my mama and daddy still were around to see the crowd their little boy is hanging out with these days. Mama would be pleased. Daddy would be surprised.

OMI contract costs city of Hinesville more than it is worth
