Irwin: Road Improvement has Closed Henderson’s

When I am opening a new internet account or phone app or whatever, and it asks me to come up with answers to those security questions – Favorite teacher... First pet… Favorite restaurant… – the answer to my favorite restaurant is and ever shall be, Henderson's.

Pace: Traveling Through Europe with Oxford College Students

The idea for this trip began with a suggestion from Oxford College's Communications Director, Cathy Wooten. Five years ago she looked at me and said, "You know that 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, right?" I hadn't given it a lot of thought to be honest, but I knew she was right, and I could tell where she was going with it.

Gingrich Cushman: Be Wary of Anonymous Sources

The public's insatiable desire for content has led a number of so-called reporters to lower their standards and practice shoddy journalism -- biased, full of conclusions that were reached before facts were verified, reliant on anonymous sources who may have their own axes to grind.

Harrop: Can Americans Get Their Democracy Back?

Boy, wouldn't it be great to get that mentally unstable thug out of the Oval Office? That's putting it undiplomatically, I know, but the time has passed for treating the presidency of Donald Trump as anything less than a freaky aberration of our democratic norms. Thank you, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, for dispensing with all delicacy and stating that Trump has put our institutions under assault "internally," as well as "externally."

Conason: Congress: Demand White House Transcript

If Donald Trump disclosed highly classified state secrets to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister, he may be vulnerable to impeachment -- not because he broke the law, which evidently he did not, but because he committed an act that would be considered criminal and perhaps treasonous if perpetrated willfully by any other government official.

Yarbrough: The truth is that there is no fake news here

According to our Tweeter-in-Chief, there is a lot of fake news running around these days. I think he is talking about the national television networks and the navel-gazers at the New York Times and the Washington Post. I don't think he is talking about me but who can be sure what is going on inside this guy's cranium.

Telling It Like It Is... Yearning for the good old days

I remember hearing my Granny Stapp say "We're living in a different world now" many times and that simple phrase is truer now more than ever. I've always been told I'm a lot like Granny in many ways and I'm perfectly okay with that. There's no telling what Granny would think if she were here to see how much things have changed.

Mahathre: Despite declines in teen pregnancy and birth rates, there is still more work to be done

Despite historic declines in the rates of teen pregnancies and births in the United States, and a 63 percent reduction in the teen pregnancy rate in Georgia, the U.S. teen birth rate is still higher than that of many other developed countries. The state of Georgia has the 16th highest teen pregnancy rate in the country. According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, Newton County has had a substantial decrease in teenage pregnancy rates, currently 27.9 births per 1,000 females ages 15 to 19. However, the county's rate is still higher than many other counties ...

Redman: Heart of the home

Every day of the summer, the young boy would trample through the living room onto the crystal-clean carpet tracking in dirt, mud, or clay that he had so diligently scraped up from every side of the property, and every day his mother would scorn him for not taking his shoes off before entering the house. She would even make him clean it up himself! Even still, he would make the same mistake over and over. The boy told his mother that he couldn't wait until he had his own house so that he could have his own rules.

Gingrich Cushman: Angels around us

While we tend to celebrate our own mothers on Mothers' Day, this year I am celebrating all mothers who overcome odds to take care of their children and others' children. "Janice" (not her real name) is one such woman.

Harrop: 'Bro Culture' companies may do poorly by being bad

What exactly does Uber have to offer that other companies do not? The ride-hailing service doesn't own its cars or employ drivers. It's basically a smartphone app that connects passengers to drivers using their own vehicles. Rival apps now do much the same thing.

Yarbrough: Hogs not happy at being compared with politicians

A few years ago, I decided that what this country needed was an organization that specialized in both in-depth analysis of major political developments as well as pest control.
