Thanks for a good year

When it comes to politicians, there was a lot to criticize this year. It would be wrong, however, to end the year without noting some people who deserve commendations for what they accomplished in 2015.

Observations on the coaching changes at UGA

As my sweet mama would say, "Things just get curiouser and curiouser." That is the best way to describe the recent events at the University of Georgia - or more specifically - the athletic department at UGA.

The woman who shares my name

Several of you got a chuckle over my recent observations on a survey from the College of Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Georgia that says a good way to improve your marriage is to show gratitude to your spouse. As one reader told me, groveling doesn't hurt, either.

From one of my favorite cities, Savannah, comes the sad news that Pinkie Master's Lounge will close at the end of the year.

Leadership — a Study in Contrast

When terrible events happen, leaders address the safety concerns of their communities, and then reach out to various factions to ensure a solution is reached. They bring people together and work with them to be successful. Events of this past week underscored the stack contrast in leadership between President Barack Obama and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Big ‘thank you’ to UGA for study on marital bliss

There are many good things happening at my alma mater, the University of Georgia, these days. Unfortunately, not much of it is occurring on the football field. But please remember that football is only a game and that we are first and foremost an academic institution. (I usually say that when we lose to Florida. I don't say that on the rare occasions when we lose to the You-Know-Where Institute of Technology. That is because I go into a fetal position. It is hard to say anything meaningful when in a fetal position.)

Words matter

Last Thursday, Paul Ryan of Wisconsin was elected speaker of the House. At 45, he is the youngest person to get that job - other than the only younger speaker, James G. Blaine, who was elected in 1869 when he was 39.

Who should know better than to mess with our porcine preferences

The history revisionists are still busy as bees trying to rid us of all vestiges of the Old South. That means some brave soul is going to have to tell Wheeler County that they have to change their name because the county is named for Confederate Gen. Joe Wheeler. Oh, and while you are at it, change the name of the county seat of Alamo. It might just offend Mexicans who got a bad rap at the other Alamo in 1836. They were just mad at the time because they couldn't register to vote.

Learning from Lady Liberty

On October 28, 1886, the Statue of Liberty was dedicated by President Grover Cleveland, who proclaimed at that time, "We will not forget that Liberty has made her home here, nor shall her chosen altar be neglected. ... A stream of light shall pierce the darkness of ignorance and man's oppression until Liberty enlightens the world."

Some random thoughts on some random subjects

I mentioned a few weeks back the TBF/FLW High School Fishing Southeastern Conference Championship tournament scheduled for Lake Lanier. It has come and gone. Fifty-one teams from eight states competed. Fittingly enough, the event was won by two youngsters from East Hall High School - Tristan Thomas and Dakota Crumley. The win earned their team the title of Southeastern Conference champions. They will now compete in the 2016 High School Fishing National championship to be held next spring at a location to be announced. Several of you mentioned wanting to see a fishing club started at your high school. I ...
