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.

I have known since childhood that my brain is prone to hilarious flights of fancy, and I have never minded it a bit. Life is simply too short to be dour and sour.

Posted: July 06, 2014

Sally was a bit of an enigma. She viewed herself as progressive, yet at the same time did not wish to divest herself of her theological upbringing. This provided a bit of a problem for her, since many of the positions she held on social issues were clearly at odds with Scripture.

I've had this wallet for nearly a decade and it holds things I think I need. It is so much a part of me that I don't have to think about it and can't remember misplacing it, which is more than I can say for my bundle of keys, but that's for another day.

Bo Wagner: The man who was older than his father
Posted: June 25, 2014

Since the very beginning the devil has sought to undermine the word of God. The very first thing he did in the Garden of Eden was to question it, “Yea, hath God said?” That questioning of God’s Word and Eve’s giving in to doubt led to some very dire consequences that all of us are still having to deal with today.

In my home hangs a photograph of a rather large and deep hole on the side of an asphalt road. It is the aftermath of an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) — or in more simple terms, a homemade bomb — that went off just as the Humvee in which I was riding passed over it.
