Among the great things about the deep South is that we have grits, the best college football in the land and very little snow.
Sometimes the most important lessons learned at school don't come from a classroom.
It sneaks up on you, your love for this place. You're assigned this duty station, so you pack up all your bags, hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. You arrive in the heart of the summer, and your lungs feel like the humidity just might kill you. You have no friends, no family, no job and no school. Then it happens.
To Nicholas Wansley and Brian and Thomas Yarbrough:
When the state of Georgia arrested four Final Exit Network volunteers, it accused them and our group, which advocates for the right to die with dignity, of assisting in suicides.

Trees, trees, trees! On Saturday, Jan. 8, Keep Liberty Beautiful had its annual Bring One for the Chipper mulch day.

Keep Georgia Beautiful spearheads the project with state corporate partners Home Depot, The Davey Tree Expert Company and WXIA-TV.
The General Assembly gathers in Atlanta this week facing a deficit of more than $1 billion. Across-the-board budget cuts are no longer sufficient to bridge the budget gap. Georgia needs more innovative, transformative ideas.
The sun was shining Saturday on Coastal Georgia - just at it was on Tucson, Ariz. But instead of going down in history as just another unremarkable day, Jan. 8, 2011, will live forever in this country as a day of terrible tragedy.
President Barack Obama's first two years in office were for the ages: Rarely has so much been spent so wantonly with so little discernible public benefit.
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal was inaugurated to lead a state mired in hard times. The hopes of almost 10 million Georgians for better things are now his burden, his responsibility and his opportunity. There could hardly be a better way to begin a new era, or to dispel the ethics cloud that hung over his head as a candidate, than for this governor to take the lead in real ethics and accountability reform in state government. The token gestures to come from the Capitol of late have been feeble and suggest that Republican rule has so far been no improvement ...
We're ankle deep in January and for some reason I haven't heard much about New Year's resolutions. Usually by this time, I've heard about diets, exercise, yoga, guitar lessons and improved church attendance just to name a few. But this year, it's almost like everything is being kept secret.
In what may well be the single most significant report made to the General Assembly this session, a panel charged with reviewing the state's tax code and making recommendations regarding it will present its findings to legislators and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle on Monday.
It was one of those pleasant September afternoons when you can feel the heat of summer giving way as the seasons change.
