Oglesby: Golf teams bag 2 state trophies, with more likely to come

The good, bad and indifferent, all is part of life. I've been on a roller coaster ride on them all the past week or so.

Oglesby: Lost local leader was a lifesaver; handicapping Romney’s chances

Hall County lost a good man and true business leader when Jim Smithson died. Jim developed business parks, was a very generous charitable giver, active in his church, served on numerous boards of directors and produced mobile homes across the county. It was the latter that drew me close to Jim.

Oglesby: The time I was lost in South America — almost

Several friends have asked me to write about the time I was killed in action in South America so they could send a copy to other friends and relatives. I don't remember whether I've written about it before but I don't think so.

Oglesby: Remembering Bobo, Stuckey’s, Williams family

Mea culpa. I boo-booed when I wrote about friend Dennis Higgins' death. He was a friend but has been dead a number of years. The G and H are next to each other and just as the phone rang, I hit the H instead of G. Dennis GRIFFIN was the fellow Lakewood Deacon leaving a wife and two children. Sorry.

Oglesby: Thoughts on Obama’s budget, GOP contest

Let's start with a clarification. My last column drew a wide response. Some were confused because of what seemed to me to be an innocent but incorrect editing.

Oglesby: Strange tale of 'The Georgia Wonder Woman'

Just one political note: You still can vote early at the elections office in a shopping center on the left side of Brown's Bridge road going out of Gainesville. Do this and avoid the precinct lines.

Oglesby: Gingrich snowed under by PAC cash; winning weight battle

I think Newt Gingrich needed to run a closer second in Florida (within 10 points) rather than the 14 he ran behind Mitt Romney, whose super PAC backers pummeled Gingrich with $16 million of advertising vs Newt's $4 million. Newt admitted the barrage threw him off stride and message.

Oglesby: Anonymous givers offer hope in dark times

This year has brought many ugly, useless, senseless murders, muggings and molestations showing a lack of upbringing and inner anger. It's partly because of the economy, partly because of lack of upbringing and just plain meanness. Let's have a better year next.
