Bo Wagner: Can you still blush?
Posted: August 10, 2014

It was, perhaps, a most unlikely of scenarios: two alpha males and the need for one of them to get clothes onto a Barbie Doll. Yet the story is true, for my son and I were the ones who, just this past week, found ourselves in that awkward situation...

Joe Phillips: Ate what?
Posted: August 07, 2014

With avid gardeners up both sides of my tree I am programmed to have a wee, spot of veggies. This year it is much smaller due to less free time and the freezer being full from last year.

Dennis Norwood: Whose country is it, anyhow?
Posted: August 05, 2014

While perusing my internet news feeds recently I came across a story that while perhaps a bit dated, still grabbed my attention. Does anyone remember reading about a decision made by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in California back in February of this year regarding an issue with the American flag?

Dick Yarbrough: A fresh reminder of why teaching is a noble profession

Dear Georgia Public School Teachers:

Dwight Watt: My web pages will not open but I am on the Internet
Posted: August 05, 2014

The problem was that the person could connect to the Internet, but they could not open any web pages. The network connection showed they were connected to the Internet and this confirmed when they tried pinging an Internet address.

Joe Phillips: Easy to spot
Posted: August 04, 2014

When every town had a department store, highways were full of traveling salesmen “repping” clothing manufacturers. A town of any size had three, four, maybe more stores selling a wide line of clothing and shoes.

Bo Wagner: The pain of peacemaking
Posted: August 03, 2014

I walked into my wife’s office, turned my backside to her, and said, “Could you please check and see if it’s still there? I have just had it chewed out so badly that I’m really not sure; I’m afraid it may be gone...”

Dennis Norwood: Mr. President, put down your fiddle — Rome is burning
Posted: July 30, 2014

It would appear as if our president has all but given up — not only on his presidency, but on governing at all. With crisis after crisis at every turn there is no late-night candle burning in the White House. Instead that candle is lighting the way for a series of fundraising events.

Dwight Watt: Are calls to fix your PC via the Internet true?
Posted: July 30, 2014

More and more people are getting phone calls that there are problems with their PC and that the caller can fix the problems. This raises several questions. How do they know your PC has a problem and will they really fix your PC?

Dick Yarbrough: Trying to determine who is the real outsider in U.S. Senate race
Posted: July 29, 2014

The U.S. Senate race this November between Democrat Michelle Nunn and Republican David Perdue will be one of the more unusual campaigns we have witnessed in Georgia. Neither has held public office and both are anxious to portray themselves as the ultimate “outsider.”

Joe Phillips: He never touched it again
Posted: July 29, 2014

Last year I donated a fiddle to the Douglas County Museum of History and Art. My father swapped his Sears accordion for the fiddle owned by a big-fingered Milam cousin. The cousin lacked an instinct for accordions also and Dad wound up with both of them.

Bo Wagner: A marker on a string, green shampoo, and a real hero
Posted: July 27, 2014

I am getting farther and farther from the days of my childhood, and as such, the memories thereof are fading somewhat. But, like everyone, certain memories have, for whatever reason, etched themselves indelibly into my brain.

Dick Yarbrough: Taxpayers on the hook for mishandled ethics probe of Gov. Deal
Posted: July 23, 2014

In 1997, Gov. Zell Miller appointed me to fill a vacant seat on the five-member State Ethics Commission and then reappointed me to a full term where I served until 2002. It was a rewarding experience and I am proud of the good things we accomplished at the commission.

Bo Wagner: A home for Oreo
Posted: July 23, 2014

We saw her a half mile or so from the house, wandering along beside the road. Out in the country where my family and I live, that is certainly nothing odd. No one pens up their dogs, no one really has to. There is plenty of room to roam, and almost no traffic, but this dog, I suspected, was one of the many that low-life dirt bags (bless their hearts) drop off in the country rather than fulfilling the responsibility they have to the adult dogs that were so cute when they were puppies.
