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.

Crawford: Georgia headed for a fiscal fiasco

When Gov. Sonny Perdue called in reporters a few weeks ago to discuss the revenue numbers at the end of the state's fiscal year, he tried to be as calm and reassuring as possible.

Shipp: State’s disdain for schools revives sad tradition

Of all the political phenomena in Georgia over the last several years, perhaps nothing has been more surprising than the return of our politicians' open disregard for public education and our electorate's acceptance of their attitude and actions.

Yarbrough: Ten years of making folks laugh, cry and rant

It was 10 years ago this month that the Atlanta Business Chronicle asked me to write a column giving my view of Atlanta two years after the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. I had been the managing director of communications and government relations for the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games and the paper wanted to know how I thought the city had changed after hosting the world. Or had it changed at all? The offer was too good to resist.

Nichols: Offering thanks for a life full of blessings

The sudden death of Tim Russert has caused many people to think about the reality of death. Recently, I have been to several funerals and the one common thread in all of them was that everyone is terminal. It is ultimate equality that everybody dies, rich or poor, black or white. After death, there is no chance to listen to a person for any comment that should have been expressed before the person left us behind.

Yarbrough: Georgia is at epicenter of national politics

Are we Georgians a privileged group or what? Here we sit in the greatest state in the union with its majestic mountains; beautiful beaches; the oldest state-chartered university in the nation located in Athens, the Classic City of the South; sweet Vidalia onions and more barbecue than we can eat.

Crawford: Hard to call winner in Senate race

There's only one statewide race on the Aug. 5 runoff election ballot, the Democratic battle for the Senate between Vernon Jones and Jim Martin. But if you asked me to predict the winner of this one, I'd have to confess I have no clue.

Crawford: Taking aim at King Richardson

Whenever I talk to a friend or acquaintance who keeps up with the activities of the legislature, I'm amazed at how often the same question comes up: Is anybody going to run against the speaker?

Oglesby: Thoughts on GOP snub, school chief, Nunn

Were it not for the legions of Democrats who recognized their party had left them, Republicans here wouldn't have the majority they now enjoy. That's partly why a lot of people are disgusted with the GOP county executive committee publicly denouncing clerk of court candidate Bob Vass for voting in the Democratic presidential preference primary.
