Milligan: Sorry, New York Public Library, but my list is better
Posted: February 22, 2020 - 12:00 am

I have always been willing to admit what is manifestly evident to everyone anyone, but just in case you didn’t know, I am a nerd.

Taylor: In digital age, achieving fountain pen zen
Posted: February 22, 2020 - 12:00 am

In the digital age of keyboards and touchscreens, pens are little more than practical instruments used primarily by — though less and less — students and reporters.

Clemons: The fun will be here before we know it
Posted: February 19, 2020 - 12:00 am

While talking (texting, actually) politics with my brother-in-law the other day, we compared the differences among states in how we all choose our leaders.

Kenneson: HB 302 won’t fix Georgia’s housing shortage
Posted: February 19, 2020 - 12:00 am

House Bill 302 is back. If you’re not familiar, it’s a state bill that would limit local government’s ability to regulate some design and layout standards for one and two family homes. It’s aimed at ginning up more home building, which has slowed in recent years. It didn’t pass last year, but state officials could consider it again.

Williamson: Working to ensure health care, agriculture and harbor protected
Posted: February 19, 2020 - 12:00 am

Legislators voted to postpone meeting on the House floor in order to devote additional time to the state budgeting process, and last week, the House Appropriations subcommittees held several meetings to finalize the Amended Fiscal Year 2020 (AFY 2020) and Fiscal Year 2021 (FY 2021) budgets.

Jones: Lawmakers focused on balanced, sustainable budget
Posted: February 19, 2020 - 12:00 am

Although the General Assembly did not convene for any official legislative days last week, the copious amount of committee and subcommittee hearings, coupled with an intense focus on the budget, deterred any possible stagnation.

Kenneson: Nothing brings the South together like snow
Posted: February 13, 2020 - 10:12 am

I was going to write about political polarization this week. It seemed appropriate to try to halfway explain why our country is divided, why there are two Americas living side by side. But I’ll have to save that for another week.

Schnabel: It costs a lot more to live the dream today
Posted: February 07, 2020 - 12:00 am

The current minimum wage in Georgia of $7.25, seemingly etched in stone, is downright shameful. It purchases less today than the minimum wage I earned as a college student in 1965 … $1.25 per hour.

Kenneson: The future of downtowns is carless
Posted: January 29, 2020 - 12:00 am

On certain Fridays in the summer, there is a concert in front of the courthouse in downtown Monroe. And a rather remarkable thing happens. The city closes down Broad Street from Washington to Spring Street. Cars have to go around for just a couple of hours.
