Too bad life doesn’t come with an ‘edit’ button

I am beginning to think me and microphones don't mix well. It seems like if I am around one, you better hope like the dickens there's a way to edit afterwards.

Center rebuilds lives, lifts spirits

Those of you who regularly check this space know this, but to the newcomers out there: I am a whiner. Like Goldilocks, I whine when the porridge is too hot. I whine when the porridge is too cold. But unlike Goldilocks, I whine even when the glop is just right.

Recently, my whining was put to the test and found wanting. After turning down several opportunities to visit the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, I finally agreed to go but not because I wanted to. The Woman Who Shares My Name said I had to because she was going and I ...

During the recent legislative session, the General Assembly passed a $19.3 billion dollar budget, including a significant boost to statewide education funding.
