Dixie Diva

For years, I blamed it on those richly royal blue suede high heel pumps. The ones with the ridiculously tall, spiked heel and absurdly pointed toe. I was 22 when I bought them, 36 when I donated them to the Salvation Army.

‘CEO’ guilt and God’s timing

It's a good bet that church pews will be more packed than usual these next two Sundays. Local congregants and pastors will likely struggle to remember the names of those who come to pray and sing next to them on Palm Sunday and Easter Day. Once again, it is time for the CEO ("Christmas and Easter Only") crowd to emerge. My perspective on such folks is perhaps unique, stemming from a conversation I had years ago.

Thinking outside the Obamacare box

Health care costs threaten to bankrupt our country. Debates over Medicaid expansion, the Medicare "doc fix," the state of Georgia's health plan, coverage of autism and so many other health care issues merely shift these costs from one party to another.

Slowpoke Bill in neutral, for now

While legislators have the weekend off from the Gold Dome pressure cooker - with a deadline of March 20 already set for its work - the session's halfway point has been reached. Lawmakers would have been on the downhill side of the 40-day session, except that Son of Snowpocalypse forced officials and staff to flee the Capitol beginning Wednesday. At least they're working, or are scheduled to, on Monday, which is a holiday.

State House tries to clear up interest

It was very good to get back to work at the State Capitol after the temporary closure due to the inclement weather two weeks ago. We addressed, and passed, a bill that could potentially affect the pocketbook of every Georgian. Personal finances are always a concern for individuals trying to earn a living for the betterment of their families. Many Georgians have been frustrated with additional fees charged by local financial institutions that were vaguely annotated by our banks as "interest."
