The dark waters of the Amazon

Calhoun Creek as I see it

There seems to be confusion on the processes the City of Dawsonville has taken with regards to the Calhoun Creek Reservoir. The approach is not the ready, fire, aim approach some are saying, yet we are carefully readying and aiming to define if this project brings value to our community and is viable to move forward once we have a defined, clear and concise plan.

The story of friends

This is a story about heroes - good people doing good things. The cast of characters in this performance shares one thing in common: They are strangers to one another. They will meet for the first time via this column. That is what makes this such a good story.

A two-step I’d rather not dance

The Port of Savannah: Key to Georgia’s economic success

Georgia is well-known throughout the United States as a strong competitor for international business investment. Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola, AFLAC and Delta Air Lines are as synonymous with Georgia as sweet tea and peaches - and each year, the list of companies that call Georgia "home" grows longer.

Revitalization interesting

It was interesting to read the recent recommendations for downtown Dawsonville revitalization. They were almost identical to the items we identified when the previous revitalization committee was active probably 15 years ago, including the desire to utilize the David house in some way. We also worked under the guidance of a University of Georgia planner, Paul Kreager.

What’s next for Georgia?

The debate surrounding second amendment rights received national attention a few weeks ago as the U.S. Senate voted down a bill that would require expanded background checks for firearm purchases.

A salute to one trying to make this world better

A wise man once said that our only reason for occupying space on this earth is to leave things better than we found them. Unfortunately, not enough of us will. Len Pagano is an exception.

Three responses to readers

"You need to write something about domestic violence," a friend told me recently. I hadn't thought about tackling that subject because so many others have done so.

Good news for Georgia students

What’s your American legacy?

For more than 40 years I was fortunate to be able to work in international business. I traveled the globe, not as a simple tourist, but living, in some cases for years, in other countries, getting to really know the people, the cultures and the governments in those many places.

Thinking out alternatives for deer in Jekyll Island

I have one of the most interesting jobs in the world. One day I am advising world leaders on the nuances of international monetary policy. The next day I am consoling a distraught reader who thinks I need to "look within myself spiritually." The last time I looked within myself, I saw my navel. It was full of lint. Never again.

Trying to find positive in this world can be negative

The Woman Who Shares My Name instructed me that this week's column was to be about positive things. She says she is tired of bad news and thought you felt the same way.

I think your readers would appreciate that."
