THE AIR UP THERE — I don’t know about you, but I grew up in a house where making paper airplanes was a rite of passage. There was even a time when any rectangle of paper was immediately folded into a plane.
ATLANTA - Longtime Georgia Department of Transportation executive Russell McMurry was elected by the 14-member State Transportation Board on Tuesday to be the new commissioner of the Transportation Department, effective immediately. As such, he will oversee a budget in excess of $2 billion and more than 4,100 employees.
This morning, as I was getting off I-95 at the Abercorn Extension exit, I came across a person asking for a handout. You can call them panhandlers or street people, I suppose; the Bible just calls them beggars.
Gov. Nathan Deal's office released his state budget for fiscal year 2016 late last week, and if you work your way through the numbers in the document you will see a significant turning point in recent state history.
My fellow Georgians: In order to keep my national certification as a modest and much-beloved columnist, it is required that I submit to you at the first of every year my State of the Column message. (Yay! Clap! Clap! Clap!) I do that gladly today.
As you know, during the year, this column examines mostly budget-related issues as well as other governmental areas along with occasional topics. During the General Assembly, this format changes and becomes the sharing with readers what is going on at the Legislature and what actions the body takes. It is our way of relating information and of course to elicit your input and comment.
I am honored and humbled to represent you again in the Georgia House of Representatives. As with the start of each new General Assembly, we took the oath of office on Jan. 12. The 180 members, some newly elected, sat down to begin the state's business.
Q: How do you stop tantrums in a 3-year-old? My daughter never went through the "terrible twos," but began throwing wild tantrums shortly after her third birthday. This coincided with the birth of a sibling, a boy, but she's very affectionate and helpful toward him so I don't know if there's any connection. I've tried everything I can think of to prevent and stop the tantrums - things I've seen recommended in various places - but nothing has worked. She throws one whenever she doesn't get her way. Help!
As the 2015 General Assembly was gaveled into session, there was much activity as we took the oath of office, elected our leadership, and then proceeded to watch the inauguration of Gov. Nathan Deal and the slate of state officers as they were sworn in.
In politics, you must take advantage of windows of opportunity. Sometimes good ideas are sidetracked by events, a bad economy or even personality conflicts among political leaders. Given the risk of delaying decisions, Georgia needs to address its transportation shortfall quickly and practically.
I love observing people and listening in on conversations in order to get ideas for my articles. Some of the most interesting topics that people like to talk about are the differences between men and women. The other day I did a survey asking men about things that women do that drive them crazy, and I received a ton of responses. (It was obviously a topic they were passionate about.) Here are some of their answers:
