Life of Pie and other sweets

Chris Day studied as a hair and makeup artist; her gift for catching life-changing luck comes naturally. When the Air Force transferred her husband to Anchorage, the city's seven months of wintry gloom might seem grim for a woman who said she "loves pink, flowers, glitter and all things girly." But Day promptly landed a job in the Sheraton Hotel's luxury spa doing spray tans and makeovers.

Holt: A view from the House

Last week, we crossed the halfway mark for the legislative session. The pace is really picking up, with the second half promising to be very intense. The House voted on 22 bills and resolutions during the week. Most were fairly minor issues or housekeeping measures, though we did pass two bills to restructure MARTA, which were obviously significant for folks inside the perimeter.

Honoring our heroes

"True heroism is remarkable sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost."

Applaud our schools

Our schools often get a bad rap, so we always make sure to praise them to the rooftops when they succeed. Despite what some might say, this happens more often than not. They succeed in small ways every day, they open their doors. When a child begins to recognize words for the first time and takes that leap into reading, when a student suddenly, with the help of a dedicated teacher, understands that tricky math problem - these are the small successes that are seldom lauded.

McCoy: How not to hold a baby

Gentlemen...you need to go to baby-holding school. You know how you get when you're around newborns. When the parents come by with their little bundles, you lay your arms by your sides and say, "Let someone else hold it ... first." Yes, you actually say "it." And what's this "first" business? You know you have no intention of being number two or number 20. You don't ever plan to hold that baby. Women hold tiny babies all the time, but we men act like those little creatures are sticks of dynamite wrapped in radioactive poison ivy. Well ...

Carter: No insurance, a bad gamble

When you visit a casino in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, or Biloxi, you say you're going gambling. That's not what the casino operators call it, though. They're not in the gambling business; it's the gaming industry. They provide entertainment.

Burgess: Social Circle’s beauty

In every community there's a choir of folks who loudly sing their songs of complaint about anything and everything going on in town. These are usually the people who contribute very little to help make things better. Fortunately, in Social Circle we have many other groups whose members give generously of their time and talents to help make our city a great place to live, work and play. One group in particular inspires all of us in its efforts to appreciate and enhance the beauty of our community. All my conversations about local beautification projects invariably lead to Crenan ...
