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.
There’s no question about it. This long, cold, miserable winter gave me a “sitting disease.”
March is supposed to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb. I’m not sure if it realizes that, but one thing is for sure — you never know what might happen once that month arrives.

Samantha Fuhrey, NCSS superintendent of schools, believes the Newton County School System is experiencing gains.
Business in the Georgia House intensified last week. We considered 77 bills and resolutions on the House floor in a number of lengthy sessions, while at the same time producing several dozen bills per day from numerous committee meetings.
I have often referred to California and Hollywood in particular as Granola Land. You know, because it is home to so many fruits and nuts. I have visited Hollywood and Vine on a few occasions and seen a lot of very strange things that have strengthened my opinion.
