UGA, COAL AND REASONABLE VOICES

UGA, COAL AND REASONABLE VOICES

Jul 14, 2014

I’m an “all in” kind of energy person. I think we should use wind, solar, bio-fuels and any other “renewables,” out there. Heck, if wood chips would fire our economy, I’m in. I like nuclear, the ultimate renewable. We need to pressure the powers that be to allow the reuse of the [...]

D-DAY, LEADERSHIP AND MY DAD

Jul 14, 2014

My dad passed away in 1991. He was 81 years old. He had a full life and I still miss him. One of my friends told me, “I feel like I knew your Dad because you talk about him,” I couldn’t have been paid any higher compliment. Some of the biggest [...]

1 Billion Dollars

Jul 13, 2014

I’m a supporter of public education. I don’t call it “government schools” with disdain dripping from my lips. I went to DeKalb County Schools when they were some of the best in the country and my husband attended Bibb County Schools and Hall County Schools. We met at the University of Georgia [...]

My Endorsements and the Runoff

Jul 13, 2014

–Not!
Got your attention, didn’t I? Early voting starts on June 30th and there will be one Saturday day of early voting before July 22. In Mississippi last week, more people turned out for the runoff than for the primary. There’s about a 1 in 5 chance that will happen in Georgia. I’m [...]

George W. Bush on the cost of leaving Iraq too soon (2007)

Jul 13, 2014

We are a Georgia politics site, but sometimes national stories, international stories effect Georgians. At the height of the GWOT (Global War on Terror) for America, about 30% of those deployed either lived or traveled through bases in Georgia. It’s personal.
President Bush gave a speech in 2007, ahead of the surge, to tell what the [...]

Kingston, Perdue, Nunn

Jul 7, 2014

A strange thing has happened in Georgia politics. Because of the change in the primary calendar and the very long runoff cycle, many news outlets are not focusing on the race between Republicans Jack Kingston and David Perdue. Instead, they are looking at it as if it’s a three way race between Michelle Nunn, [...]

A FAIR FIGHT

May 22, 2014

Politics is a full contact sport, and part of that sport is negative campaigning.
I am not naïve.  I know better than most that negative campaigning is a fact of life in political campaigns. I was on the receiving end of some pretty tough attacks in my campaign for Congress.
But at least they dealt with issues.  [...]

WHEN IS THE PRIMARY?

May 22, 2014

With early voting starting in Georgia and the vote totals a little less then expected, you have to ask, “When is the primary?”
People like me and my partner, Tim Bryant, have been following these races for 14 months or more. I would argue, if you’re reading this column, you’ll be voting in the May 20th [...]
