Time for truth in Medicare accounting

The mid-term elections are in the rearview mirror, but Congress still has a lot of important work to take care of before lawmakers go home at year's end and the newly-elected are sworn in next January. At the top of the "lame duck" to-do list: Congress must address urgent problems with Medicare - the most costly federal program and largest driver of national debt - or there will be harsh ramifications for seniors and caregivers in Georgia.

In celebration of glorious Grant

It happened a few months back. My father-in-law celebrated, to our great joy, his 88th birthday. There was no pomp or circumstance involved. He abhors that. Because he is among the most beautifully well-mannered people I have ever encountered, he politely took all the calls though he really wished we would just treat it as another day and leave him alone to watch the news channel.

This is a story I shared with some of you a couple of years ago, but given the well-deserved tributes this week to our veterans, it seems an appropriate time to share it with all of you.

Each church handles such prayers differently, but they usually involve some sort of prayer list.
