While at the bank recently, I got in a conversation with a man and the bank manager. Our talk turned to how other parts of the country are so vastly different than the south.

"I went to California a while back," the manager said. "Beautiful state, had such wonderful fresh produce. But not the first bit of it was fried."

In boating vernacular, "setting a course" means to plot one's journey before raising the sails in hopes of arriving at one's destination safely. As the chairman of the board for Islands Management Company, the entity responsible for the operations of Lake Lanier Islands Resort, I feel it is high time we - as a cohesive community -proactively set our course for a safer Lake Sidney Lanier together.

Congratulations Judge Gosselin

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to congratulate Northeastern Judicial Circuit Superior Court Judge Kathlene F. Gosselin on her appointment by Chief Justice George H. Carley of the Supreme Court of Georgia to serve on the newly formed Accountability Court Funding Committee.
