It seems like I have been to a lot of funerals lately, which tells me something about myself.
With Georgia colleges facing legislative impetus to tie funding to college completion, advisement should take center stage.
The persistence of anti-Semitism, that most ancient of poisons, is one of history’s great mysteries. Even the shame of the Holocaust proved no antidote. It provided but a temporary respite. Anti-Semitism is back. Alas, a new generation must learn to confront it.
I sat in my recliner Monday evening, watching the temperature drop through the 20s and into the teens and finally into single digits.

Requiring the left to prove their programs and policies are producing outcomes at reasonable cost would shift the debate from ideology and good intentions to reality.
OK. I’m fixing to beat a dead horse — again.
After having worked in or reported on the last 12 U.S. presidential elections, I am convinced that successful politicians who regularly run for and win public office possess an extra olfactory nerve that enables them to sniff changing political winds, often long before the rest of us have even noticed the leaves stirring.
Who can argue with no bailout? Let the Senate Democrats decide — support the bailout and lose the Senate. Or oppose the bailout and bury Obamacare.
Oak Hill Elementary has fully complied with state safety codes for more than one decade while Clements Middle has failed to report compliance for five years.
Another Christmas has come and gone. It has been stressful, busy and, at times, frustrating and expensive. However, it has been fun, huh? What would we ever do without such a special holiday to celebrate and spend time with family and friends?
