Yarbrough: Some applause, please, for the State of the Column

In order to keep my national certification as a modest and much-beloved columnist, I am required to submit annually a State of the Column message. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please stand and applaud if you hear something that floats your boat or look bored if you don't. You may be on television.

Yarbrough: Thoughts on school politics, a true journalist and a birthday girl

State Sen. Tommie Williams, R-Lyons, one of our two unelected lieutenant governors - Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock, is the other - sent out a puff piece taking much credit for authoring a bill to require local school boards to consider a teacher's "effectiveness," not seniority, when getting rid of teachers.

Yarbrough: So who cares that Dawgs lost SEC title game? Not many

In case you have been vacationing on the moon, you may have missed the news that the student-athletes from the University of Georgia, the oldest state-chartered university in the nation, located in Athens, the Classic City of the South, came up a wee bit short in attaining the football championship of the Southeastern Conference.

Yarbrough: Farewell to a wise, gracious mentor

Today, I ask for a moment of personal privilege. It was two years ago this week that I wrote about the Three Wise Men that have so greatly influenced my life: Roy Hodnett, a real estate magnate on Saint Simons Island; Dr. Raymond Cook, my college professor, now residing in Valdosta and John W. Jacobs Jr., a broadcast pioneer and philanthropist from Gainesville.

Yarbrough: Shout-outs to friends, and goodbye to Sheila

Oops! I left the "t" off the Rev. Bryant Wright's name in last week's column about the possibility of the Southern Baptist Convention dropping "Southern" from its name. I was just so excited to learn that whatever the organization's future nomenclature, Rev. Albert Mohler, president of the Southern (sic) Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., will continue to favor us with his observations on such critical theological issues as yoga and women preachers. (Al doesn't approve of either and I don't approve of Al, but that's a topic for another day).
