State school superintendent weighing run for governor

If public education in Georgia doesn't have enough problems, there is now a high-profile ruckus between Gov. Nathan Deal and State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge. It has gotten so peevish that there is talk that the school superintendent may challenge Deal in the Republican gubernatorial primary next spring.

Informational meetings held across the state

I have had a productive and busy summer, and I have been able to enjoy some much needed down time with Stacie and our girls. It is amazing how quickly the summer break has passed by with school starting back for most of our children last week.

Some of the things I’ve been missing

Anyone who has lived in Dawson County for a while and has been involved in at least a few church and community activities knows that you will normally be busy.

A reminder to be careful what you pray for

You may have read that the United States Supreme Court is going to hear a case about whether or not prayer can be uttered in town councils across America. Last year, a federal appeals court ruled that such a nefarious deed violated the First Amendment's ban on an "establishment of religion."

Journey through Mount Hagen

Our team was getting a bit desperate. We had been working in the rain forest deep in the Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea for almost two weeks.

Bringing back Front Door Politics

We cannot turn on the news without hearing another story about the dysfunction that is occurring in our nation and in our federal government. We are faced with a continuous erosion of our moral fiber that has traditionally held us together as a nation.

Skeeter should be included

I read recently in the Atlanta newspapers that our intrepid public servants just keep on going - on trips, that is.

Looking back on career

This month, I begin my 16th year as a syndicated newspaper columnist in Georgia. Time flies when you are having fun and I am having a ball. I hope you are, too.

Thankful for news coverage

Thank you for writing about the ID show on Meredith Emerson. She was a brave young woman who caused a lot of key evidence to be left behind to expose a monster and bring an end to the evil he was perpetrating. She deserves to be remembered and I hope they honor her with this account.

Tragedy is a reminder to text less, live more

It is a potential killer whose numbers rival the deadly Ebola virus and it doesn't get near the attention it should. Unlike the dreaded illness currently ravaging West Africa this is one with a quick cure.

One letter not enough to polish liberal credentials

Rap. Rap. Rap.

What’s wrong with Southern accents?

Who is the outsider in senate race?

The U.S. Senate race this November between Democrat Michelle Nunn and Republican David Perdue will be one of the more unusual campaigns we have witnessed in Georgia. Neither has held public office and both are anxious to portray themselves as the ultimate "outsider."

Taxpayers on hook for ethics probe

In 1997, Gov. Zell Miller appointed me to fill a vacant seat on the five-member State Ethics Commission and then reappointed me to a full term where I served until 2002. It was a rewarding experience and I am proud of the good things we accomplished at the commission.

My deepest appreciation to so many

I am humbled. I am grateful. I am honored. And I am overwhelmed. I said it to the people who came to my 90th birthday celebration at Bethel, and I say it again to the many people who made that lovely celebration possible and to those who sent good wishes even if they couldn't attend.

Junior E. Lee knows his polls, pests

With the July 22 runoff elections fast approaching, I called Junior E. Lee, general manager of the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company, located in Greater Garfield, Ga., to get his thoughts on the various races and to see who he thinks will make it to the finals of the November general election and who will be eliminated this round.

Help on way for the humor impaired

The things you learn while surfing the Internet in desperation for column material. Did you know that there is a National Association for the Humor-Impaired? May Jimmy Carter (speaking of the humor-impaired) wash my socks if I am not telling the truth.

Blood drive is appreciated

This year in memory of Charles [Finley] on his birthday, Ben and I have asked LifeSouth to hold a blood drive. They have made arrangements to have it at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame, 59 Main Street, in downtown Dawsonville, from 9 a.m. -4 p.m. July 5.
