Shipp: Marching to secession once again

Suppose you woke up one bright morning and you were no longer an American. You were a documented Georgian or Southerner, but no longer a citizen of the United States.

King: Science, faith at odds, but why?

Have you ever had two friends - or relatives perhaps, people you really cared about - who simply couldn't get along with each other, two people who seemed determined to misunderstand and misinterpret everything the other said? Sad, isn't it?

Nichols: Living with Parkinson’s is a challenge

Life is a staircase with a number of landings where you stop climbing and just rest before continuing the journey of living.

Glazer: Bullies’ cruelty fades, but the memories never do

I've been writing community columns for the Times for more than eight years. Some pieces seem to write themselves. I pour a cup of coffee, sit down with the laptop and an hour or two later I have a community column to zap over to The Times.

Crawford: Georgia's changing landscape may affect 2010 vote

Out of the many e-mails that were zinging around Georgia's political community last week, one in particular caught my eye.

Shipp: Athens shooting tragedy reflects Southern gun culture

Three people were shot to death Saturday in Athens, and three others were wounded. A UGA professor was being sought as the killer. I was mildly surprised to hear the news before I switched the TV to "Cops" to watch the San Diego police collar hapless derelicts.

Hall County lost two giants, both longtime friends, since last I wrote.

Yarbrough: We need Zell to straighten it all out

I miss the heck out of Zell Miller. I wish he would come back and straighten out the mess under the Gold Dome. And he could, too.

Crawford: Cagle's exit opens door to a tidal wave of candidates

Just when you thought you had the next governor's race all figured out, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle decides to mess everything up.

Shipp: Perdue’s backing gives Handel an edge

If I were a gambling man, I'd bet a wad, even at this early date, on Secretary of State Karen Handel to win the Republican primary for governor next year.

King: Who created this economic deception?

"What did he know, and when did he know it?"

Nichols: Piracy still is hard to control on open seas

A country has sovereign powers to govern by law the land of its territory, the airspace above that land, and the seas along its coasts out to a limit of 12 nautical miles. Earlier the sea limits were set at three nautical miles because that was the distance a cannon on the beach could fire.

Thomas: Sweet TEA parties were taxpayers’ way of saying ‘enough!’

"The sum of good government," said Thomas Jefferson in his first inaugural address, is "A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned (emphasis mine)."

Yarbrough: Thoughts on furloughs, tax cheats and Tommy the Barber

Kudos to Joe Mulholland, district attorney for the South Georgia Circuit, which includes Bainbridge, Camilla, and Cairo. After reading my suggestion that state government rather than schoolteachers take a furlough, the DA told me, "Some of us in government have already taken your argument to heart."

Glazer: E-mailers, beware — Web scams are clever, common

This is getting out of hand. When I opened this morning's e-mail and sipped my first cup of coffee, here's what I found:

Tom Crawford: Writing new chapters in America's tale

You won't often see so many history-making events crammed into such a small period of time, but that was the case last week with three huge stories breaking in a little less than 30 hours - a bonanza for those of us who work in the news industry.

Dick Yarbrough: One man who defined a successful life

Five young men, ages 18 to 23. Two college graduates. Two currently attending college. The youngest headed that way this fall. All good students. All excellent athletes. All standing resolutely before a large assemblage to pay tribute to their grandfather, Rob Neely, who passed away recently after a courageous battle with cancer. And what a tribute it was.

Tom Crawford: SC flag debate has familiar ring to Georgians

It's as if we stepped into a time machine and went 15 years back into the past.

Dick Yarbrough: Remembering a special man and all he taught me

It has been 31 years since he passed away and not a day goes by that I don't miss him, especially on Father's Day.

‘Of the dead, nothing unless good’

Speaking ill of the dead and their grieving relatives is something that those of us with any social graces tend to avoid. We take the higher road out of respect for those who have passed, no matter how much we may have disliked them or how vile they may have been, primarily because they no longer are able to defend themselves, at least in public.
