Deal would give significant flexibility for local schools

As chairman of the House Science & Technology Committee, I was encouraged and enthusiastic with gubernatorial candidate Nathan Deal's educational platform. He considers job creation to be the state's top priority and knows that jobs are "reliant on a top-notch education system that focuses on math, science and technology."

Hospitality key to draw tourists

As autumn approaches, the North Georgia mountains are gearing up for a busy fall season. Our beautiful mountain communities play host to a variety of activities in the fall, from the Ellijay Apple Festival, Oktoberfest in Helen, Gold Rush Days in Dahlonega and of course my personal favorite, the Dawsonville Moonshine Festival. These experiences are made all the more unique with Georgia's touch of Southern hospitality. Our ability to make anyone and everyone feel welcome is a quality that can give our state a competitive edge in tourism.
