Crawford: Court ruling could impact state school funding

In a small courtroom tucked high inside the Fulton County courthouse, a trial will be held in October before a retired judge who will hear the arguments, sift through the evidence, and eventually issue a verdict (no jury is involved in this case).

Glazer: Bigfoot, my foot: I’m hunting Little People

Like Fox Mulder, I want to believe.

Crawford: Chambliss gambles with energy move

By all indications, Saxby Chambliss should have an easy time winning another term as Georgia's senior senator.

Shipp: One-term pledge is usually broken

If an aging presidential candidate loses his car keys once in a while or absent-mindedly puts his shoes in the Frigidaire, it's OK by me. I know how it is. If you keep playing this game, you begin to slip.

Nichols: Georgian history, culture threatened

My two visits to Georgia with students during the Cold War days do not make me an expert on that country. But I do have very fond memories of what I learned from the Georgian people I met.

Yarbrough: Skeeter’s right; Georgia critics are just jealous

It never fails. Just let me say one nice thing about the great state of Georgia and I get letters from people who, (a) live in the state but, (b) are originally from a state north of the Mason-Dixon Line that, (c) they think is better than the state in which they now reside.

Thomas: Saving the planet at the expense of mankind

"I'm trying to save the planet; I'm trying to save the planet." The summer heat, caused of course by man-made global warming, must be causing Nancy Pelosi to repeat herself. I wonder if she was wearing a pair of red slippers and kicking her heals together during her plea.

Shipp: Don’t have a lobbyist? Better grab your wallet

It's time to keep one eye on your bank account and another on our friends at the state Capitol.

King: More anger won’t fix our problems

Friday was not a good day. I was stuck in the house waiting for a repairman who was scheduled to arrive "between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m," if a missing part could be found.

Glazer: Being crafty just a work in progress

This morning I put a newspaper clipping about my daughter in the family scrapbook. Actually, scrapbook is a pretty glorified title for what we have. It's really just a binder that contains any piece of newsprint with the name of one of the Glazers on it. It has always been my intention to someday organize it into volumes dedicated to each family member.

Corso: Virtual reality hits home with daughter’s request

The other day, my 8-year-old asked me if she could have her own cell phone. Hardly a moral crisis, to be sure, but it did knock me back a step since our typical conversations center around the identification of characters in Disney TV shows that should not be imitated when speaking to adults.

Oglesby: The history of building a local Republican Party

Questions from several friends relatively new to Hall County about my dual role as journalist and political activist prompted the first part of this column. I seldom respond in this space to letters to the editor. But in keeping with my philosophy of full disclosure so readers will know where I'm coming from, I felt this was necessary.

Yarbrough: Georgian is leading Ford’s rebound

Bennie Fowler represents everything that is good about this country, so it is not surprising that American-headquartered Ford Motor Co. has him in a key position to help the company in its turnaround efforts.

Glazer: Remembering two souls who inspired life, laughs

The other morning I woke up early, splashed awake by a wave of sadness. At first I couldn't identify where the feeling originated.

Crawford: Don’t bury Edwards’ career just yet

It would be difficult to have missed the story last week about the sensational confession from John Edwards that he had an extramarital affair a couple of years ago.

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

It is a potential killer whose numbers rival the deadly Ebola virus and it doesn't get near the attention it should. Unlike the dreaded illness currently ravaging West Africa, this is one with a quick cure.

Crawford: Georgia voters can get the job done

For the past 20 years, an idea frequently floated for reforming the political system has been to set term limits for elected officials.

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:"

Glazer: A life is changed, or lost, at drop of a rock

If I met Sharon Budd, I know I'd like her. She's from Uniontown, Ohio. She's raised four kids and worked as a seventh-grade language arts teacher. She's a breast cancer survivor.

Givens: A humanist's view on school prayer

Many Christians feel that removing teacher led prayer from school is persecution. This debate has come to Hall County with the letter sent by the American Humanists Association to Hall County School officials demanding that coach led prayer be stopped.
