With the July 22 runoff elections fast approaching, I called Junior E. Lee, general manager of the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company, located in Greater Garfield, Ga., to get his thoughts on the various races and to see who he thinks will make it to the finals of the November general election and who will be eliminated this round.
The cellphone video told the story. A U.S. Postal Service van was parked beside a ravine. The driver was systematically taking packages from the back of the vehicle and tossing them down the hill. All in a day's work.
Georgia will soon be losing one of its most entertaining political personalities in U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, the Republican from Athens.
SAN DIEGO - This Independence Day weekend, memory takes me back to something my father said during a Fourth of July celebration many years ago.
The things you learn while surfing the Internet in desperation for column material. Did you know that there is a National Association for the Humor-Impaired? May Jimmy Carter (speaking of the humor-impaired) wash my socks if I am not telling the truth.
You wouldn't think, five years into the Obama presidency, that so many liberal Americans wouldn't like America.
As the speaker of the Georgia House, David Ralston is one of the most powerful men at the state Capitol. Gov. Nathan Deal is the only person at the Gold Dome who has more political clout.
What's the first thing you do when you find yourself in a hole? Stop digging!
Since my girlfriend couldn't get a reservation for us at the San Diego Hilton, she assumed the next closest hotel to the conference she was attending would be equally swell, something called the Hard Rock Hotel.
In my home hangs a photograph of a rather large and deep hole on the side of an asphalt road. It is the aftermath of an Improvised Explosive Device - or in more simple terms, a homemade bomb - that went off just as the Humvee in which I was riding passed over it.
When Nicolai "Nico" Calabria was born, his mother phoned her sister. Excitedly, she told the new aunt about the baby's blond curls and blue eyes, that he weighed 6 pounds 7 ounces. Then she added, "He only has one leg."
Norm Woodel is one of those people in the world of politics whose face may not be that well known, but whose voice is right in the thick of it.
I have said it before but it bears repeating: If I don't qualify for heaven (a distinct possibility), my preferred alternates are: a. Athens, Ga., on a crisp fall Saturday afternoon; b. Athens, Ga., on a warm spring day; or c. Athens, Ga., on any day.
It all seemed to be breaking the right way for Rep. Jack Kingston after the Senate Republican primary.
Does anybody actually listen to robo phone calls?
If you operate or work for a hospital located in one of Georgia's rural communities, you should be very afraid. There's a strong possibility your hospital will be closing down soon because of financial problems.
As you may have heard, some of our intrepid public servants under the Gold Dome are unhappy with the Advanced Placement U.S. History test and the College Board, which administers the tests.
Georgia's lawmakers have reached the halfway point of the General Assembly session, raising the question we ask every year: What have they done for you?
I am fascinated by the Brian Williams brouhaha. I don't have television and have probably never seen NBC's "Nightly News." I don't follow war stories. Until the recent flap over "misremembering" his experiences in Iraq, the name Brian Williams met nothing to me.
If you are a supercilious liberal you-know-what or a sanctimonious Bible thumper, I have some good news for you. I am giving you both the week off. Enjoy it while you can. I will be back.
