A sophomore in her final semester at GPC

In 2007, with the support from the community and a 100-acre land donation from a local philanthropic fund, an exemplary attribute to Newton County was created in the emergence of Georgia Perimeter College. The college allows students from the surrounding counties to obtain a two-year degree and achieve countless opportunities. The Newton campus is a place for dual enrollment students, transfer and first-time freshman students to earn their associate degree.

Future taxes on retirement assets

One of my questions when I get involved in a discussion with people about a financial matter, ObamaCare for example, is "Who is going to pay for all of this?" The topic could also be something like local recreation or the new Braves stadium, and my question remains the same.

Weeds be gone from your garden

Many people are like me in one respect -- they enjoy tilling garden soil and planting vegetables just to see things grow. Fresh tasting vegetables are an added benefit. My favorite vegetables to eat are fresh okra, peas and sweet corn, but I enjoy growing tomatoes the most. Tomatoes just seem to be more of a challenge for me.

Softball sunset for trio of EHS Eagles

For three former Eastside Eagle softball players, their on-field careers are quickly approaching the final inning. Four years ago, Eagle teammates Amanda Hawkins, Taylor Causey and Erin Steele were seniors looking forward to their 2012 graduation day and nervously anticipating what awaited them in the fall when they would each begin playing softball for their respective colleges. Each had already celebrated their accomplishment of receiving a college scholarship earlier in the year with a signing day ceremony surrounded by family, friends, coaches and teammates.

If the polls hold, scoring tickets to "Hamilton" will be as good as it's going to get for Bernie Sanders in New York. But let us first linger in Wisconsin, where Democrats and independents gave Sanders what looked like a decisive win.

Happy April; time to get growing

It's time to break some ground and get growing. Maybe it's time to break out of that rut of growing four tomato plants a year, and grow a diverse garden full of strange vegetables. Or maybe this is the year to that you need to grow enough to be prepared for a zombie apocalypse or the crash of the supermarket industry.
