All year long Newton football made its money on offense where Rams' head coach Terrance Banks had nine returning starters from last year's team. As the Black Knights know, the Rams live and die (mostly living) on the arms and legs of Romario Johnson.

From bad to worse

As of March 11, your Georgia legislature had completed 24 of 40 working days in Atlanta. We have 16 days remaining that will likely be spread over the next month in order to give us more time to search for budget solutions. We are also working on other areas of interest to improve the efficiency of state government and to make life less expensive for the citizens of our state.

Budget news here goes from bad to worse. We received word that revenue to the state for February 2010 versus the same month of 2009 was down 10 percent. That ...

Look, daddy, an airplane

Last week news broke of an air traffic controller working New York City's busy John F. Kennedy International Airport bringing his young son to work with him, and actually allowing the child to convey instructions to aircraft. Some of the airline pilots were amused, and the aberration from the normal airport operation almost passed without incident.

Having spent parts of the 20th and 21st centuries in the company tower for the busiest airline at the world's busiest airport, I was flabbergasted by the news report. It just couldn't be true, I thought.

How not to repair a garage door

It's a fact: I don't like to pay someone else to do something that I can do better. Well, at least that's the theory. The reality is that I'm cheap, and I hate to let my money go on long trips without me. So, I often repair things that I should never mess with, just to save a few bucks. A classic example of my penny-pinching foolishness dates from about 1986, when I tried to repair my own garage door.
