Will Georgia say 'yes' to medical marijuana?

Can it be that the state Georgia might stop saying no to medical marijuana?

Oxford organic farm gets growing

The seed of an idea for an organic farm at Oxford College is beginning to take root. This spring, Oxford welcomes its first organic farmer, who will help transform a grassy field on Emory Street into a thriving, colorful patchwork of crops and a living laboratory for students.

Massie: Skin color's still important in politics

Today the idea of not being judged by the color of one's skin but being judged by the content of one's character is as farcical as the idea of unicorns. Judging based on color of skin is exactly the barometer race-mongers and racialists measure with today; content of character be damned.

A view from the House

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. Initial, informational hearings on the state's finances, which normally don't start until the second week of the session, were completed last week. Thus the nitty-gritty of appropriations work was already underway, somewhat to the exclusion of other legislating. This allowed the House to compose and consider the first component of our budget work on Friday. This was the "little" budget, as the update to the current fiscal year budget is known.

4-H Forever: Kids taste independence at summer camp

Forget marijuana, what about cigarettes?

On Jan. 1, Colorado began permitting the legal sale of marijuana. Even before that, the nation's news media had swung into action, arguing just about everything -- marijuana is dangerous or not dangerous, a gateway drug or just a lot of smoke. Nothing I saw mentioned why I, for one, will not smoke marijuana. I'm afraid it would lead me back to cigarettes.

Changes to speed up legislative session

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. Last year, a federal court ruled that Georgia needed to better accommodate overseas and military voters by holding an earlier primary. The concern was that the existing schedule, in which primaries are held in late July, didn't provide enough time for the return of those votes – especially if a primary runoff was required. Thinking back to my service on the Newton County Board of Elections, I see the reason for the ...

What boycotts are telling Israel

Yet another academic group is mulling censuring Israel. This time it is the Modern Language Association. Just recently, it was the American Studies Association, which called for a boycott of Israeli academic institutions. Before that, similar resolutions were passed by European academic associations, much concerned with Israel's occupation of the West Bank. These are asinine movements in all but one respect: They tell Israel what it needs to hear.

Keep winter memories alive to warm the heart

This past week, we came to know the meaning of "Polar Vortex." The cold converged on Midwest and the Eastern regions of the country without mercy. Health issues became a matter of life and death for humans and other animals. Frostbite was threatening exposed skin. Schools were closed, and people were told to stay indoors. More than 1,000 flights were canceled. It was too dangerous for the news reporters to continue reporting on how dangerous it was. If some of us had forgotten words like "Fahrenheit" and "hypothermia," we remembered them in a hurry.
