For almost 28 years now I have prayed that Jamie Leigh Huckaby would grow up to be intelligent, well-rounded and happy. Those prayers have been answered many times over.
On the day I visit the Anne Frank House, which is actually the family’s hiding place atop Anne’s father’s business, the wait to get in is as long as three hours. Such is the attraction of this historic site, 53 years after it was opened to the public.
It matters little who dislikes me along my solitary walk with defeat in opposition to waste and abuse. No one will love any of us when the money’s gone.
During the second week of the legislative session, the House focused its efforts on budget work as part of the emphasis on an expedited session.
It’s an educated twist on Ben Franklin’s “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
It was a really unusual snow day for me.
Fixated as we Americans are on Canada’s three most attention-getting exports — polar vortexes, Alberta clippers and the antics of Toronto’s addled mayor — we’ve somewhat overlooked a major feature of Canada’s current relations with the United States: extreme annoyance.
My grandson has a degree in marine biology and is a certified diver. He has used his skills and his education to film underwater. Some of his footage has appeared on National Geographic and Discovery channels. He has been swimming with sharks and has seen their reaction to blood in the water.
Dishes are on my mind today. Yeah, I know. A little strange, huh?
Officials knew that the coal industry uses dozens of chemicals that have never been thoroughly tested for their effects on human health. Officials also knew this was true of the segment of the industry that Obama and others call “clean coal,” which, I have argued, should be considered an oxymoron.
This past week, I have done a few things I’m out of practice doing and haven’t done for years since leaving the northeast USA.

Georgia’s 2014 legislative session began smoothly last week, but moved at an accelerated pace. The reason for the faster pace is a change in the elections calendar.
My friends and I seem to have a hard time choosing a movie. Quite often someone will call our little circle together — or just another couple — and ask, “Want to see a movie tonight?”
I’ve chronicled American exceptionalism in past columns. We’ve watched brave soldiers defend our soil and protect our good name, our freedom, our ways of life and living — all that we hold dear. We’ve come a long way in this land forged by bombs bursting in air through perilous fights. Emerging markets, developing and industrialized countries have always been able to depend on and trust the U.S.
In the “alternative” media universe truth can still be found. If media elites awarded prizes to Fox News, that network’s chief intelligence correspondent, Catherine Herridge, would deserve one.

I quit talking about Newton County basketball 10 years ago, because if you weren’t there to see it in person you wouldn’t believe what I was telling you anyway.
