Thomas: The truth of Christmas exists in hearts of believers

Prior to our revolution, most crown-appointed governors in the American Colonies remained loyal to the king. One such governor wrote to the Board of Trade in England stating that, "If you ask an American, who is his master? He will tell you he has none, nor any governor but Jesus Christ."

Yarbrough: UGA a winner on and off field

OK, Bulldog Nation, let's all get a paper bag and breath into it very s-l-o-w-l-y. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Feel better?

Yarbrough: A BRIDGE to graduation, then work

The HOPE scholarship has kept a number of Georgia's brightest kids at home and has vastly improved the academic quality of our state's universities and colleges. If a college education isn't your bag, the state of Georgia also offers one of the best technical education systems in the nation. Great universities and great technical schools in the same state: That combination should be a win-win for our young people, but the wonderful world of education doesn't work that way.

Shipp: Georgia is no haven for Clinton in 2008

Nichols: Circle of friends makes life worthwhile

Some time ago, a person I knew very well compared me with a rich man in town. "For the rest of your life, you will never have as much money as he has now."

I was just a college teacher with a modest income, so I accepted that comparison as valid. I never did accumulate as much money as he did before his recent departure from life, but I have more treasure than he had because I am enriched by the many people who form circles of love in my life.

Shipp: State blew it with Feb. 5 primary

One-time legendary state House Speaker Tom Murphy said, "You've got to be careful with election legislation. More often than not, it doesn't do what you're trying to do, and eventually it backfires."

Yarbrough: Underdog Democrats plan revival

A couple of weeks ago I visited with Georgia House Majority Leader Jerry Keen, R-St. Simons, to get his views on the upcoming legislative session. Last week, I stopped by to see what House Minority Leader DuBose Porter, D-Dublin, had to say about things.

King: Reject labels; embrace forgiveness

This column is going to be up close and personal. To a certain extent every columnist is a public figure and open to public criticism. That's fine with me. I learn something from every letter or e-mail I get, but I object to labels.

Yarbrough: Put down the phone; no text is worth our lives

King: Why not an end of our own choosing?

Two weeks ago, The Times reported Robin Williams' suicide. I'm sad for a number of reasons, maybe not the same as other people's reasons but just as intense. I am sad because the world lost a gifted comedian. To quote Ella Wheeler Wilcox, who wrote "Laugh and the world laughs with you:"
