My niece Hunter was 7 when I moved to Gainesville, and I looked forward to being around to watch her and her brother, Tyler, grow up.

For some reason, I joined a gym
For some inexplicable reason, I went out last week and joined a gym. Actually, I do know the reason. My talented and intelligent trainer, Chelsea, basically told me I had no choice.

Honor those who protect our freedoms
As a journalist, I’ve been very fortunate to cover a lot of major events and interview a lot of important people. But the most interesting interviews I’ve conducted haven’t come with presidential candidates or governors or titans of industry. The best interviews have always been with men and women who have served this country in the military.

Don't worry, be happy, Georgians
I’ve always consider the state of Georgia to be a happy place. I grew up here and have lived my whole life here. I’ve never seriously considered living anywhere else. But apparently, we aren’t happy here.

On patrol with the Grammar Police
We had an interesting discussion around here last week about proper grammar. You’d think that a bunch of journalists would know everything there is to know about grammar and that there would be no arguments. But the English language being what it is, filled with all sorts of rules and exceptions to those rules, even the smartest among us gets tripped up occasionally.

Where does all the fat go?
Americans, myself included, are obsessed with losing weight. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing a celebrity in a commercial for one weight-loss plan or another promising to help you lose weight.

Celebrating everything about the peanut
BLAKELY – When I was in high school, The Atlanta Constitution ran a series of stories about the disparity in education across the state of Georgia. The series included stories about schools in affluent counties, inner-city schools, schools in smaller cities and schools in rural areas. For the stories on rural schools, a reporter and photographer visited Early County High School.
