Not so fast cordcutters_cable's not going anywhere

NEW YORK (AP) - Cord cutters rejoiced last week after HBO and CBS announced plans to sell stand-alone streaming services, a move that cable and satellite television providers have resisted for years. Customers tired of paying big fees for hundreds of channels they never watch just to have access to a few favorite shows might be expected to start cancelling cable service in droves. Get Netflix, throw in HBO, add a network here and there - why would anyone sign up now for cable?

Almost Masters week

I have some friends in the Augusta area who are devotees of The Masters golf tournament. They are pretty excited that a player by the name of Eldrick is going to play in their upcoming tourney.

Eldrick is quite a player. I call him Eldrick because that's what they called him the first time they introduced him at The Masters. I was standing there when they said it.

Working through the details

We returned to regular committee work and floor sessions last week. The House and Senate Appropriations committees had made some good headway during the two weeks of focused hearings. This work was rendered all the more important because the February revenue numbers, as half expected, slid by another nearly double digit margin. Georgia saw a 9.9 percent drop from February of 2009, which was itself down by over 34 percent from 2008. This makes for more tough decisions, even if we still expect revenue trends to plateau at some point later this year.

Tough numbers bring out tempers, and ...

Revitalizing a community

A year ago we rode through the Walker's Bend subdivision off Ga. Highway 81. At best, it was a sad sight to behold with home after empty home.

We had visions of it turning into a community of eyesores as empty houses were starting to fray badly.

Lights out

For years we have heard Covington residents complain about their high utility bills.

Most of the complaints about paying high utility rates can be lumped into perennial complaints of life - like taxes are too high, the mail is always late and traffic is horrible.

You can make a difference

Dear Editor: I am writing this letter today with great sadness in my heart because of the loss of another precious member of our community to domestic violence. I have spent the last seven years of my life attempting to educate those who will listen, about the horrible affects of domestic violence on our individual lives and our community. Even though our shelter helped over 3,600 individuals last year, this loss tells me that we have not done enough.

I understand that right now, everyone has the need to lay the blame for this loss on someone, when in ...

The power of a praying woman

With March being Women's Appreciation Month, it's only appropriate for Good Hope Baptist Church to have a day focused on celebrating women.

Its ninth annual Victorian Tea is this Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m. And it all began with the church's first lady Stephanie Tomlinson, who said the Lord dropped in her spirit to have a social event for women after establishing a Women's Day a couple years prior.

Grace Notes: God’s grace to make big decisions

Do you like to make big decisions? There are so many factors to weigh, so many pros and cons to sift through, so many variables to consider. Wouldn't it be nice if God just made all the decisions for us?

Well, he loves us too much for that - so, after making us his own, he gives us the ability to make some decisions. Realize, this is not something to take lightly. The decisions we make have a pretty profound impact on who we become. Thankfully, God gives us some guidance.
