Commentary: Gainesville native’s time in the Netherlands has given her new appreciation for Europe

I'm a Georgia girl, born and raised. I grew up on UGA football and yearly elementary school field trips to Grant Park Zoo, and for close to three decades, I never imagined living anywhere else.

Commentary: Dr. Seuss’ classic can teach new generations about the environment

Seventy-five years ago, Theodor Geisel wrote the first of his 44 popular books for children under the pen name Dr. Seuss. Included among such fanciful classics as "The Cat in the Hat" and "Green Eggs and Ham" is one of my family's all-time favorites, "The Lorax."
