Yarbrough: Kudzu-eating goats offer potential

First, an explanation as to why I am not talking about the elections this week. It is called a deadline. This column runs in a number of major markets around the state, from Rocky Face to Rincon to Sugar Hill. To ensure that all my loyal readers are treated equally, there have to be deadlines.

Glazer: Finding caregivers can come at a price

My mother-in-law, Claire, is determined to spend the rest of her days on Long Island. While most of the family migrated south to Georgia and Florida, she remained in her house on Peconic Bay.

King: Day after vote is time to unite as Americans

What are you going to do tonight: Stay up and watch the returns, or go to bed and pray for the best? I'm going to bed; too old to stay up much past 10 o'clock no matter what's going on.

Crawford: Georgia voters buck national trend

You can say this about Georgia voters: they aren't about to be swayed by any of those newfangled ideas and trends you might see having an influence on other states.

Yarbrough: No bull; acting gov. isn’t an easy job

Where in the world is George? I'm not talking about George W. I know where that George is. He has donned his flight suit and is preparing to jet to Wall Street where he will land in front of the empty Merrill Lynch building festooned with a "Mission Accomplished" banner.

Shipp: When cheering for Obama ends, what then?

The moment the TV networks declared Barack Obama the president-elect, something wonderful happened. The perception of the United States changed around the world. America was the international good guy again. There was dancing in the streets of the great cities of Europe, Asia and Africa.

Cornelius: Mystic chords touch hearts, election

"The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."

Shipp: Georgia chief justice turns her back on supporters

Oglesby: Is Obama ready? It’s hard to see how

Before I write again, the election will be over. Some predictions: Barack Obama will win the popular vote and very possibly the electoral college. Riding those popular vote coattails, Democrats will increase their hold on Congress. As of now with his long history of comebacks, John McCain still cannot be ruled out of a razor-thin win.

Nichols: US campaign is long, dirty, expensive

The presidential campaign has lasted more than a year and a half. To me, it seems much longer. And like many Americans I am glad it ends on Nov. 4. Looking at the process, I can make some observations.
