Shipp: Georgia is no haven for Clinton in 2008

Hillary Clinton's glide to this year's Democratic presidential nomination has hit a serious snag. Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, her toughest rival, has caught an early wave that is threatening to swamp the Clinton cruise to reassuming the White House.

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.

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.

Nichols: Bad intelligence led to Iraq war mistake

After I graduated from my university, I went to Washington, D.C., and got a job as an intelligence research analyst. After being cleared to work with sensitive materials including top secret, I entered the large work force that is the intelligence community.

Guest Column: Georgians, unite to fight diabetes

As I have traveled the state and met with Georgians from all walks of life, it has become increasingly evident that an issue of priority to many is health care and disease prevention.

Shortly before Zell Miller hired shrewd Democratic consultant James Carville to direct strategy for his 1990 governor's campaign, Miller convened a meeting of key Baptist leaders.

Oglesby: Beware of tax woes from AMT

First, apologies to a fine organization for my referring to it as the "Junior Service League" in my last column which referenced the annual Charity Ball which it has sponsored for many years. Same organization and mission, it was long known simply as the Junior Service League. I just let it slip.

Shipp: Candidates don’t show holiday spirit

As the second most important date on the Christian calendar approaches -- as the holiday we celebrate with gusto jingles our way -- both political parties show the world that America's best-of-class politicians are little more than blackhearted barbarians.

Crawford: Some good news for Georgia students

With all of the attack ads running on TV this election season, Georgians have no doubt had their fill of pessimism and negativity.

King: Politics keeps us short-sighted

Human nature has changed little over time, but human behavior has. We no longer burn heretics at the stake or torture animals for sport ... well, not the way we did in the past. At least today we pay lip service to social justice and the rule of law.

Schofield: A perspective of K-12 school funding in Georgia

As a father and a school superintendent, I have an extremely personal interest in the state of our schools. I also have a great respect for the democratic process: the opportunity for vigorous debate and the potential created by new and innovative ideas.

Yarbrough: Random notions on obits, UGA and okra

If I die anytime soon - and I have no plans to do so at the moment - please see that the first paragraph of my obituary reads, "He was past president of the University of Georgia National Alumni Association." You can save for later paragraphs the part about my being often mistaken for Brad Pitt and my uncanny ability to put commas where they don't belong.
