High-speed Internet coming to mountains

North Georgia is one step closer to the high-speed Internet that Vice President Joe Biden promised would come with federal recovery funds.

Parts of eight counties whose access to high-speed service has previously been blocked by the mountains will have it in early 2012, said Bruce Abraham, the president and Chief Executive Officer of North Georgia Network.

Winter landscape tips

Winter has officially started and cold days are ahead. Despite the weather, the following are a few landscape tips to keep in mind during the winter months.

• Winter is the time to apply miscible oil sprays to kill overwintering mites, aphids and scale on deciduous trees and shrubs. Spray miscible oils when temperatures are above 40 degrees F, but not within 24 hours of a freeze. Since the oil kills insects by suffocation, avoid spraying on windy days to ensure that all surfaces of the plant are covered.

Mama Said There Would Be Days Like This

I hate to admit that over the last decade, the Christmas season has lost some of its sparkle.

Don't get me wrong, I still love and celebrate the reason for the season, but the trappings of shopping, the hectic fury of schedules and the feelings of not doing enough for everyone on my list has left me feeling more like the Grinch or Ebenezer Scrooge than someone celebrating the most magical time of the year.

Walters runner of the year

To many, running is nothing more than putting one foot in front of the other. It's a means to an end: Getting from one place to another or staying in shape.

But for Dawson County's Madalyn Walters, it's much more. It's become a way of life.

Russell Creek vs. Shoal Creek

As one of the authors of the Georgia Water Coalition's Dirty Dozen list (on which the proposed Shoal Creek Reservoir in Dawson Forest was included), I am compelled to respond to assertions made in Commissioner Gary Pichon's letter to the editor of Nov. 16 ("Calling Water Dirty.")

The water that flows out of the hollows of Dawson and Lumpkin counties and through the Etowah River is not owned by anyone. No one can claim it as "their water."

Residents gain wealth by working hard, not whining

The Greatest Generation, those who survived The Great Depression and World War II, are now among our dwindling number of oldest senior citizens.

When the going got tough, they got tougher and beat both monumental challenges. They didn't sit on their back side and whine for a government handout. They didn't Occupy Wall Street. They worked hard and accumulated their nest egg for retirement. We need to salute their work ethics.

The greatest tradition

In the south, we love tradition. Maybe it's because in our ever- changing world we find comfort in knowing that some things can stay the same.

Christmas is a special time of year, and I try to share with my children simple traditions I remember as a child.

Mama said there would be days like this

I can't speak for all men, but when it comes to the men in my life, their idea of quality bonding time has involved some form of sports.

My grandfather and uncle would spend Saturdays at Georgia games; evenings were spent watching the Braves or some God-awful wrestling. This was their father-son time even though they worked more than 50 hours a week together.
