Budget dominates the session

As the Georgia General Assembly kicks off the 2010 Legislative Session, I'm honored to again represent the people of the 51st Senate District at the State Capitol. While our most immediate task is to balance the statewide budget, our overarching goal must be to revitalize Georgia's job sector.

Motorsports park should not defend speeders

I am writing regarding a troubling announcement made by the Atlanta Motorsports Park on Jan. 16. In a press release, the park offered any person ticketed under the new "Super Speeder" law a free half day of access to the park - if and when it is built. All they have to do is bring in their speeding ticket.

When to use herbicides

In last week's newspaper article, I wrote about how herbicides are classified as selective, nonselective, systemic or contact. In this article, I will go a step further and write about how herbicides are classified as preemergence or postemergence, depending on the time the chemical is applied.

If ‘the king’ and King lived on

I don't know about you, but I sometimes have "what if" moments when I think about persons who have passed away.

Forced to view from broader perspectives

Seeing the magnitude of disasters in Haiti makes it difficult to dwell on one's own problems, even though they must eventually be faced and dealt with. We also think more clearly about our blessings.

Junior E. Lee predicts the next president

I was on St. Simons Island last week scarfing down massive amounts of corn-fried shrimp at the exquisite little Georgia Sea Grill when someone came to the table to inquire if Junior E. Lee had finished his analysis of the recent election. That really puffed Junior up when I told him that.
