It seems like summer is slowly beginning to turn to fall. Some vegetable gardens may still be producing well, but others are beginning to wind down for the season. For those of us whose gardens have given up, consider planting a cover crop this fall to improve your vegetable garden next summer.

GAINESVILLE - The State Board of Pardons and Paroles' silence on the July 10 clemency it granted a death-row inmate in a 1991 murder case has stirred strong emotions in north Georgia, with ripple effects possibly leading to the doors of the 2015 General Assembly.

The heartbreak is hearing my child's fears of failure.
