Yarbrough: Life’s meaning is made clear, taught by a life far too short

Longtime readers will remember several years ago when I talked about a beautiful little lady I had met when she was just 2 years old and who possessed the most crystal blue eyes I had ever seen. Her name was Abby Smith and she was a knockout.

Dear public school teachers in Georgia:

Yarbrough: Let’s send August into outer space along with our beloved ambassador

I usually try to run the big decisions by you before I take action, but I know you have been distracted over the past weeks watching our selfless public servants in Washington put our interests and those of our nation above petty, partisan political sniping in the debt ceiling debate and marveling at how our crackerjack president, Mr. Swivelhead, makes Jimmy Carter's woebegone administration look like a cross between the Garden of Eden (pre-apple tasting) and Brigadoon.

Yarbrough: Being politically correct isn’t easy

There is a fallacious, salacious and slightly audacious rumor afloat that I can be a tad politically incorrect at times.

Yarbrough: Do we trust in God or the state?

You would think designing a license tag would be relatively simple, wouldn't you? Not in Georgia.

Yarbrough: California law is not likely here

The phone rang the other day and on the other end of the line was Gay Blade, the world's flaming liberal. Gay spends a lot of time trying to raise my sensitivity toward liberal issues. So far, she has not had a lot of luck.

Yarbrough: Why can’t Ralston pay taxes on time?

I own a vacation home in Dawson County - Big Canoe to be exact. Every year, we get a bill for property taxes, and it is paid promptly. If it wasn't, I am afraid someone in the tax office would post my name on the court house door and that my neighbors in Big Canoe would be so horrified they wouldn't make eye contact when I waved at them.

Yarbrough: Here's a Georgia lawmaker who listens to teachers

I don't think it is an understatement to say that when it comes to public education in Georgia, school teachers don't have much faith in the legislature. Why should they? They hear about private school vouchers, state-approved charter schools, private school scholarships cloaked in secrecy and - oh, yes - furlough days.

Yarbrough: Minister reflects on 50 years of weddings

Two of my favorite school teachers, grandson Nicholas Wansley and Mandy Bragg, were married last week. It was a beautiful and moving ceremony. I pray their marriage will be as happy as they, their families and friends were on that special day.

Yarbrough: Tribute to a rare man, father

It has been 27 years since he passed away and not a day goes by that I don't miss him terribly, especially on Father's Day.

Junior Lee has the answer for Newt ... uh, Leroy

When I heard Newt Gingrich's campaign staff had resigned, I called the premier political analyst in the country to get the lowdown on what really happened. That would be Junior E. Lee, general manager of the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company, located in Greater Garfield, Georgia.

Yarbrough: Thoughts on a singing Jacket, plus Mr. Chips, Pres. Peanut and the Ambassador

One of the greatest singing voices I ever heard and one of the most talented people I ever knew died last week and, yes, he was a Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket through and through.

Yarbrough: A life well-lived shows us the way

I got a good lesson in wealth management this week. Not from a high-powered financial advisor, but from the retrospective of a 103-year-old life lived well.
