King: Keeping nuclear power safe too costly

Our daughter, Susan, is dating a self-described "conservative." I've been labeled - by others, not me - as "a liberal." We all get along just fine; however, the boyfriend is pro-nuclear. I'm not. In fact, I am on the board of Nuclear Watch South, part of a nationwide watchdog service (look us up at www.nonukesyouall.org).

Glazer: Here’s wishing everyone can find their own Lola

Last week, our dog, Lola, died. Just like that. She hadn't been sick or feeble, even though in dog years she was probably older than Jimmy Carter.

Oglesby: Huckabee has a strong base in GOP

Key aspirants to the GOP presidential nomination must put aside differences and work together as a cohesive team following the lead of an agreed principal spokesperson and message coordinator if the party hopes to take over at least the House with a long shot at the Senate next year. After 2010, they can square off in the battle for the nomination.

Corn: Quest for progress starts with bringing soldiers home

As President Barack Obama wrestles with the request of more troops by his chief commander in Afghanistan, it presents an opportune moment to consider our continued presence there. A presence, which I believe takes away far too many of our young people.

Crawford: Phone books go way of buggy whips

The telephone book was once a familiar part of everyone's household. Some of the directories were big enough and heavy enough to be used as doorstoppers, but everybody would use them at some point to look up a neighbor's number or just check to make sure the phone company had listed their own name and address correctly.

King: Communicating today is easier, yet also harder

When I couldn't reach my brother's home in New Jersey, (I had the wrong area code) I dialed his cell phone. He picked up on the first ring with, "Hey, Joan. Is everything OK?"

Nichols: Lying, shoes and politics historically go together

Yarbrough: Tooting my horn for marching bands

A young man asked recently if I would write a letter on his behalf, recommending him to the University of Georgia. That was an easy request. The lad is as bright as a newly-minted penny and I have no doubts that if UGA remains his first choice, he will excel there as he has done in one of the more academically-demanding private schools in our state.

Glazer: An average day, in my average life, on the Web

If you own a computer and have access to the Internet, odds are you have a guilty pleasure or two. No, I'm not talking about online porn or gambling sites. I'm talking about Web sites that have nothing to do with work or school, sites that you bookmark and visit often, maybe too often.
