Oglesby: Barnes' attacks likely to backfire

The size of Nathan Deal's personal debt stunned many people; otherwise, there was little new.

Oglesby: Views on Newt's ideas, Roy's mud-slinging

Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia was the noted architect of the highly successful "Contract with America" that put our country back on the road to recovery and pragmatic conservatism.

Oglesby: Platefuls of pancakes and politics

Newcomers may not be aware of what we talk about when we ask if they're coming to the annual Kiwanis pancake breakfast Saturday, Sept. 25 at the Civic Center on Green Street. Along with the Wauka Mountain chicken pie dinner, it's Hall County's premier whole-family social event of the year. Here's what makes it special.

Oglesby: Hometown support swings runoff

Some random observations on the primary runoff:

Oglesby: Strong Hall turnout could help Deal

The primary elections were disgusting, not so much in results but in the failure of nearly three-fourths of Hall County's registered voters to vote. A few excuses are understandable, but nothing this bad. Worse, even fewer (barely 10 percent) are predicted to vote in the Aug. 10 runoff.

Oglesby: Expect plenty of drama tonight

Plenty of time remains for most registered voters reading this to get to the polls if you haven't already voted.

Oglesby: Recalling a statewide road trip years ago

Ashley Fielding and Sara Guevara did one more fantastic job on the Chattahoochee basin series. It's amazing they did it in one week of long hours. They provided Times readers insights they probably never had considered before, and the new understandings could help pave the way for a workable agreement, though not fully ideal from our local viewpoint.

Oglesby: With runoff done, primary has intrigue

It was no great surprise that Tom Graves won the runoff to fill the unexpired U.S. House term of Nathan Deal.

Oglesby: Turnout is key to today's House runoff

There's still time to vote in the GOP House runoff today since the polls don't close until 7 p.m. All in line at that time can vote.

Oglesby: Turnout is key to runoff success

Lee Hawkins and Tom Graves finishing 1-2 in our 9th District U.S. House special election was no surprise. Steve Tarvin's third place surprised me.

Oglesby: Last-minute entries may spark runoff

The last-minute flood of candidates for various local, state and federal offices in the July primary caught me off guard. It virtually guarantees more runoffs than I had expected, and several candidates will get embarrassingly low total votes.

Oglesby: Civic duties loom — special election, census

Early voting turnout totals likely will determine which two candidates to fill Nathan Deal's congressional seat make the runoff. Turnout as of this writing is lower than expected. It could mean people still don't know much about the candidates as liked yet or haven't made up their minds.

Oglesby: Expect a close special election

This is going to turn out to be a most interesting special election to fill the unexpired term of the 9th District congressional seat Nathan Deal vacated to focus on his run for governor.

Oglesby: On Woods, health care, special election

Glad as I am Tiger Woods is ready to play, it was surprising that he's not returning to competitive golf until the Masters. Most thought he needed at least one, better two, tournaments as tuneup.

Oglesby: Health care reform is a big gamble

Methinks President Obama and his Democratic Congress are gambling big time while perhaps not passing their signature issue of health care reform. A majority of Americans want meaningful reform, not break-the-bank, untested, unproven, vote-buying schemes.
