Derrer: Bird's-eye view of change

In 1980, Doug Derrer was driving down U.S. 129 in Hall County when he looked to his right and saw a field blanketed with freshly fallen snow. The young Miami-Dade police officer pulled his car to the highway shoulder and stepped out onto the icy asphalt.

‘I’m like the guy who used to make wagon wheels’

For the past half-century, he has worked on a wide array of electronic devices, from antennas to Christmas tree angels.

Specialist expands treatment options at cancer center

People who are diagnosed with a malignant tumor can generally expect to be referred to at least two specialists: a surgeon, who will try to remove the tumor, and a medical oncologist, who will administer chemotherapy.

But women who have cancers of the reproductive organs sometimes see only one doctor: a gynecologic oncologist, who performs both surgery and chemo.

Rep. Deal pleased with extension of PeachCare

Georgia's PeachCare program is safe for another year and a half, after Congress passed an extension plan that had been pushed by U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal, R-Gainesville.

"We had introduced a bill early on, when it appeared there would be a stalemate," Deal said. "We felt like the states needed some certainty that they could count on in terms of funding, and 18 months was the most realistic time frame."
