Yarbrough: Rookie lawmaker gets a spanking

The Cherokee County Republican Party has a blurb on its website about Rep. Sam Moore, who won the 22nd District ouse seat earlier this month following the death of veteran lawmaker Calvin Hill.

Robbins: An open letter to an old jacket thief

This, as stated above, is an open letter to the person who stole my jacket.

Yarbrough: Pondering guns, schools, Carter statue

Many of you have written to say you oppose House Bill 875, which would allow weapons in houses of worship and is currently making its way through the state legislature faster than a speeding bullet. I suggest you let the bill's author, State Rep. Rick Jasperse, R-Jasper, know, too. Call him at 404-656-0188, or email rick.jasperse@house.ga.gov.

Yarbrough: State of the Column promises humor in every pot

Georgia has become the country's laughingstock after the national media watched the metro Atlanta region grind completely to a halt over a 2-inch snowfall.

Yarbrough: Child abuse, neglect need to be Georgia's priority

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month in Georgia, as proclaimed by Gov. Nathan Deal. Child abuse is a subject I don't like to think about, let alone write about and you would probably just as soon not hear about. But it is there and we need to acknowledge it and demand some solutions.

King: How random — and friendly — is our universe?

I have a note taped up over my computer that reads: "Be prepared for synchronicity in your life. It grew out of some unnamed force somewhere in the universe. Acknowledge it when it appears. Be grateful and give thanks, for if you think deeply, you will find it is not random at all."
